In my dreams, Odin whispers to me. He tells me I’m destined to wield a legendary sword. He tells me my road will bring me to Valhalla. But when I wake, I’m only Hervor. Fatherless. Unloved. Unwanted. Jarl Bjartmar, my grandfather, calls me cursed. My mother, her memories stolen by the gods, has forgotten me. Everyone tells me I should have been left to the wolves, but no one will tell me why.
I’m walking down that aisle… whether I like it or not.
I learned very early on that every life matters—no life is insignificant, most especially not my own mother’s, whose life was cruelly slain. I vowed to do what I can so that no one has to feel as if they’re nothing at all when they lose their loved ones.
So when I’m forced into a marriage with Dominic Luca—the man next in line to be the head of the biggest crime family in all of New York—the ring he puts on my finger is a gun to my head with his finger on the trigger.
I couldn’t possibly hold his hand knowing it has the blood of countless men on it. I couldn’t possibly look into his eyes knowing he’s seen more deaths than a coroner.
I could never be safe around him. Not after a horrifying truth comes out, a truth that weaves his past with mine, a truth that makes me realize something even more horrifying than the truth itself.

Will hired me to oversee the renovation at the old Kasper Ridge Resort – a job that will make my company and guarantee that Papa can live comfortably to a very old age.

He was only supposed to give her dating lessons. And maybe a little kissing practice… It’s been five years since Charlotte Tam had to endure a public proposal at a baseball game—literally the stuff of her nightmares—and realized her ex never really knew her. She hasn’t dated since, afraid that no man will understand her cranky, introverted, coffee-obsessed self, but she wants to try again. Her friend suggests she ask a guy to ease her into the dating game and give her some lessons.

Cass Cutler’s life is full—of nothing. So when she gets the news that she’s inherited her father’s yacht, there’s no reason not to head to paradise for a new start on the picture perfect beaches and the crystal clear waters of Panama for a fresh start. Learning how to sail and operate a boat is just the challenge she needs.
When Archer Wolfe arrived in Panama he was looking for a change of scenery and maybe a bit of adventure, he was definitely not looking for a relationship. But a feisty little blond in a tight tank top fiercely determined to prove she can handle the big boat she somehow inherited, could change all of that. If only he can convince her to give in to their desire.
Despite their attraction, the last thing Cass wants or needs, is another man in her life who’s just going to leave. Archer is nothing more than fantasy, and he needs to stay that way if she hopes to save her inheritance—and her heart—before she loses everything.
Twelve years ago, I left Thornchapel—and the two boys I gave my heart to—behind. And now I’ve returned, hopeful…and wary. Because it’s so very easy to be drawn back into the world of the seductive and elegant Auden Guest…and into the world of his worst enemy, St. Sebastian Martinez. The beautiful and brooding St. Sebastian is as irresistible as he ever was, and Auden is just as handsome and arrogant, and the three of us can’t seem to unknot ourselves from each other. From the hasty promise we three made all those years ago. As Thornchapel slowly tightens its coil of truths and lies around us, our reluctant threesome starts unravelling into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Together we’ve awakened a centuries-old fate that will either bloom like a rose…or destroy us all.
