Summary

The co-authors of the bestselling House of Night series reunite with a haunting, romantic, suspense-filled, original novella in The Escaped series.Eons ago, Sirens were exiled from the Mortal Realm, held captive in a cove at the edge of Tartarus. They are beautiful beyond imagination, but deadly beyond compare. And they have set their sights on breaking free.They risk everything to sneak out of Tartarus and ascend to the forbidden Mortal Realm with one mission—mate with human men to dilute their cursed bloodline and form a new race of Sirens, free from their prison in the Underworld. But for a Siren to become pregnant, she must revert to her True Form, a horrifying sight that drives men to madness, and makes killing them a mercy. In modern San Francisco, the Sirens blend in; each woman has a singular goal, and each man she meets is her prey…Melody Seirina has always been different. She doesn’t believe that she’ll be able to bring herself to take a human life, even when the fate of her people rests on her willingness to do so. She’s even more convinced when she meets Dean, a charming cop who sees a loving future with her. Their romance threatens two worlds, the one the Sirens fled from, and the one that will destroy them if they can’t complete their mission as soon as possible.  Melody will have to make a decision—risk the future of her people or follow her heart.

    Can This Hellion Resist Hot Summer Love?  
    Becky Arrington isn’t a daydreaming country girl just waiting for a handsome cowboy to come rescue her. She’s a strong, determined woman who can run a ranch as well as any man. To prove it, she needs a ranch all her own, and she has the perfect place in mind. But when her ideal ranch is sold to a mule-headed lawyer, Becky sees her dreams crumbling and she’ll be forced to do some major kissing-up to get Mason Granger to sell. Unfortunately, kissing Mason can addle a woman’s brain and make her lose track of what she really wants. A ranch. Or love. And who says she can’t have both? 
    Divorce attorney Mason Granger learns early on that marriage is the fastest way to hell. Growing up with a mother who exchanged husbands like shoes, he has more than a few hang ups about women and spends his days punishing them in the courtroom . . . and his nights punishing them in the bedroom. But when a sassy spitfire sets her sights on the ranch he just purchased, he’s suddenly the one being punished. He can’t go anywhere without Becky Arrington showing up to annoy the hell out of him . . . and tempt him beyond his limits. And when he finally gives into temptation, he’ll discover that beneath the feisty, controlling cowgirl is a loyal, loving woman who will heal his soul and lasso his heart forever.

Alas, she knows all enchantments must end when the clock strikes midnight. 
    Who was that extraordinary woman?

He has sworn to find and wed his mystery miss, but this breathtaking maid makes him weak with wanting her. Yet, if he offers her his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love?
