Having survived her terrible captivity by a sadistic doctor deep within an ancient mine, Cora returns home ready to move on with her life, but when Mason’s mysterious condition quickly deteriorates, Cora must embark on a quest for the one thing that could save his life.

When she is told Knox will accompany her, she fears she will not return alive. If Knox cannot control her, he might prefer her dead. Trusting him is a gamble she may never win…unless she can find other ways to tame the wild vampire.


She debated what to do. Knox was determined to have his way. She was determined not to let him. Dressing up for him would not help her cause, but she couldn’t very well wander the ship in sweat pants the whole trip…could she? She would definitely attract undue attention, especially if people saw such an obvious commoner exit The Grand Wescott Stateroom. Wealthy people were unbelievably nosy when it came to things like that. People would gossip, start to ask questions she didn’t really feel like answering.

Decided, she shrugged out of her baggy clothes and slipped the first dress over her head. If she thought it would be more modest she was only a little right. The front slashed across her collarbone, fully covering her neck and chest and then draped over her shoulders like a long scarf that trailed behind her, but the deep V in the back stopped just above where her spine curved toward her backside. Moreover, the long slit in the front of the skirt flared as she walked, showing a good deal of leg. She checked herself in the mirror, turning, surprised by how elegant the gown made her look. What would Knox say? She got the impression he expected to hate it. Well, he was about to be surprised.

Wait, why did she care?

Steeling herself, she stepped out onto the balcony.

Knox was casually touching the collar of another sports coat, but when he glanced up, he did a double take. She swallowed, her heart giving an unwanted kick. Goddess of light and dark! Did she actually want him to like how she looked?

Heat threaded his gaze, and even though he hadn’t yet seen the back, she could almost feel his touch along her spine. His grin was devilish.

She shivered, and broke eye contact. If this was how her body reacted to a simple hungry gaze, how was she going to hold out for the entire trip?
