“I’ll teach you how to like it hot, chÃ¨r….”
Found naked and bloodied in her bathtub, Teague Comeaux gave Dr. Erin McClure a smile wicked enough to charm a lady out of her clothes! She’d asked for guide into voodoo county, but Teague looked like trouble — a walk on the wild side she’d never take. Driven by a primal need to possess and protect, Teague asked only for her trust in return. Could she heal his scarred soul by bringing him home to her heart?
Weaving a story of dark seduction and steamy intrigue, Donna Kauffman extends an irresistible invitation to explore the midnight mysteries of Cajun country with a renegade who just might be the devil in disguise! He’d promised her magic, welcomed her into a world of shadows, but was this rogue her inescapable fate?
“I’ve never met anyone like you,” Erin said in a shaky voice.
The admission sent a hot thrill through him. “What am I like, cher?” Teague’s words vibrated with need, dark and almost volatile in their intensity.

“Why? What do you think I’m going to do to you?”
She paused, then her trembling voice stroked him again. “It’s not what I think you’ll do, it’s what I want you to do.”
“What is that, Erin?” he asked hoarsely, taking another irreversible step forward in both word and deed. He lowered his mouth close to hers and whispered, “What do you want me to do to you, Erin? Tell me.” He brushed his lips against hers. “Tell me.”
“Teague.” His name was no more than a gasp.
“That’s right, ange. Say my name again.” He touched his lips to hers. “Tell me…”
