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.

    With her fiancé suddenly engaged to another and her reputation in tatters, Merribeth Wakefield needs a bold plan to reclaim her life. She must be brave. Confident. She must … kiss a rake?

    Saint Ford has worked hard to achieve her childhood dream of becoming of nurse. Focused on her work and devoted to her patients, there’s no room for love.

    When Nash discovers the truth about their past, he realizes he may have lost her heart before he could even fight for it. Now, Saint has to decide: is Nash worth risking herself for all over again?

    Yeah, that's right. It was a complete accident. No, I don't expect you to believe me. But, I swear, it was.
    
    See, I can explain…
    
    
    Excerpt:
    
    It was a late night at the office and I was very tired. My sexy wife, Alicia, texted me a nude selfie, telling me that there was a surprise waiting in our bed when I got home.
    
    That excited me. I thought about that surprise and got myself all horny and leaky with pre-cum until it was time to go home. I raced inside, threw off my uncomfortable clothes and tip-toed into the bedroom.
    
    I expected to see my wife sprawled out on the bed, completely naked, her luscious, red-haired body ready for my inspection. But I was puzzled when the room was not only dark, but silent.
    
    My heart beat faster. Was something wrong?
    
    I slowly crept up to my bed, felt around and smiled when I felt my wife's body. But it really wasn't my wife's body and I didn't know it. See, we'd had some financial troubles and had to move back in with my mother.
    
    "I'm home..." I whispered into my wife's ear (I'll call her mother from now on as it certainly wasn't my wife).
    
    No response.
    
    I shook her.
    
    Nothing.
    
    Then I smiled. We'd talked about playing sleep sex. This must be the surprise. I didn't know at the time that mom took some Ambien and was out like a light. She must've stumbled into our room by accident.
    
    My cock jumped nearly out of my pants as I thought about fucking my wife/mother (I know, this is weird, even still) in her sleep. I started at her feet and legs and kissed every inch of her delectable body. Mom's skin was so smooth and silky.
    
    I kissed her little toes and tickled them, seeing if she'd awaken, but she didn't. Good. I dove under the covers and spread open mom's legs. The heat of her fiery cunt nearly drove me insane. I'd never smelled my wife's juices so powerful before. If I had been thinking straight, I would've started to piece things together.
    
    But, alas, I wasn't.
