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.

    On Aunt Mildred’s death, a destitute, angry and hurt Solita travels to England to confront her errant Guardian, now Duke of Calverleigh, who had vowed to care for her but apparently neglected his duty for ten long years.
    It is true, he had forgotten her – largely thanks to his all-consuming infatuation with a beautiful Russian Princess. The chastened Duke determines to take Solita under his protective wing – and, as his charm and kindness dissolve her resentment, Solita’s acute intuition and talent for language soon expose the wicked Princess’s plot to overthrow the British Raj in India. 
    In this well woven tale of intrigue, Solita and her Guardian are both in mortal danger – and when she saves the Duke’s life, not once but twice, he sees this innocent young beauty in a Heavenly new light.

    A Steamy Historical Romance 
    “You are so beautiful in the moonlight that it almost hurts to look at you. What would it be like to taste you?” 
    From the moment Lady Anabelle Darling met Viscount Draven, she knew there was something dangerous about him. He was cold, arrogant, and callous. He enjoyed playing the villain and was an expert in cutting wit. But when she found herself unexpectedly alone with him, the danger grew. He said things that made her heart skip and her breathing hitch. She was determined to keep her distance. She had plans to find a husband and Draven offered nothing but sinful dalliance. 
    Draven enjoyed playing the scoundrel. It was never more apparent than when he spread a rumor that he and Lady Anabelle shared a kiss—or at least that’s what he’d told her. She was furious, and she was lovely when furious. He knew she had foolish dreams of wedded love, but all he wanted was a kiss. 
    He tempted and she succumbed, but neither knew how a single kiss could change everything between them.
