"Honeybee, I haven't a drop of honorable blood in my body. I'm cold. Selfish. Hollow. And I greatly enjoy the reputation my cruelty has gained me."
They call him the Winter Wolf.
Nicholas March has few morals. fewer friends, and a notorious lack of honor.
And his heart? What remains of it is cold, desolate and locked away. He learned long ago the lessons of betrayal. Never trust a woman. Recognize others will expect the worst. And no matter the cost, always retain control of any situation.
Grace Willsdown has no patience for Society's silly games and no desire for the imprisonment of marriage. When a secret lien against her home is revealed, everything she treasures lies clenched in Nicholas's palm. She must make the Devil's bargain to save it all.
Five nights of pleasure and the claim will be dissolved. But neither Nicholas nor Grace anticipate the depths of their desire after their first night together. Consuming. Tender and brutal. Boundaries become distorted. What is the bargain? And what is true emotion?
Will they brave the storms and fires to unlock their love? Or turn their backs when the five nights are done?
A sip of poison.
From the moment I see her, I want to...
Make her mine.
I Want Her.
Not to be trusted.
My heart aches and I want to...
Explain my guilt.
Beg his forgiveness.
Feel his lips on mine.
I Want Him.

Ivy, Countess of Somerset, has fallen in love. But it's not safe. And it is too terrifyingly beautiful to turn away from. Will he take her heart and rip it to pieces or hold it as tenderly as he does her body? Her world exists within the circle of his arms and if he has his way, if he loves her as desperately as she loves him, they will both willingly burn in the flames.
