Love will never die if it exists on the lips of death. I often thought about this while I was locked inside my Doll House in Patience. Groomed every second of every day, they made sure to cover all of the darkness lurking in my soul with the false guise of perfection. The soul is fickle. Naked to the public eye and only visible to the owner, a soul bleeds every time it’s put through pain. But when that’s hidden, it spreads. The trick is to protect it from reaching your brain.

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a sexy, suspenseful contemporary romance with a dark fairy tale twist…
Deformed. Dangerous. Damned.
One night ripped my life away and left me a monster—the scarred gargoyle of a man who lived in the stained-glass shadows of a crumbling cathedral, selling my soul in order to seek vengeance on those who destroyed my life.
Until one day, the chimes I heard weren’t from the bell tower of Notre Dame, but from the bejeweled gypsy invading my space.
Though she swears her research is legitimate, her beauty shimmers with secrets. I can’t trust glittering eyes that aren’t repulsed by me, nor the tempting smile that is laden with lust. I can’t trust her.
So, I’ll watch and wait… and ignore how her sharp wit and bewitching charm scorch the shackles of my restraint and enchant me into her fire.
I’ll uncover the truth before she gets too close. Before she sees the broken man beneath the scarred beast. And before I give into her temptation.
She’s a threat to everything I’ve worked for—a threat to my cathedral and a threat to my revenge. And, most dangerous of all, a threat to my stone cold heart.
It’s a common story. I’m sure you can guess how it goes.
Girl winds up in the wrong place at the wrong time.
She witnesses four gods of beauty and brutality murder some poor sap, and she’s stupid enough to get caught.
Come on. You know what happens next.
You know they tracked her… me… down.
I don’t need to tell you that they claimed me. Ripped me from my safe, perfect world and bound me in chains to their throne.
All of that is obvious.
It’s the part where they corrupted me, dragged me into their world of death and destruction, made me theirs in every way I didn’t know was possible, and I became a soldier in a war that will bring all of Cinco City to its knees…
…that’s when it gets interesting.
