He asked for her soul–and she couldn’t say no…

Rae Gannon fought back wrenching emotions as she recognized the man who lay near death in the shadowy cave. Jarrett McCullough had almost destroyed her, had believed an impossible betrayal and shattered her life. But now the untamed mystery man was at her mercy, the air sizzling between them as raw need warred with furious despair. Could his fierce possession finally vanquish her ghosts?

Donna Kauffman understands better than anyone how erotic playing with fire can be for those who test themselves in its white-hot pleasure. He’d invaded her sanctuary and freed a hunger long-denied–but could he make her admit to feeling more than just alive?

“I know you want me out of your life, Rae,” Jarrett said tightly. “You’ve made that more than clear. Trust me when I say I’m not too thrilled to be here either.”

“Well, I’m sorry you find the company lacking,” she retorted. “I didn’t move fifty miles from the middle of nowhere because I wanted company!”

“That’s just it,” he said, his voice dark and rough. “I don’t find you lacking. In fact, under different circumstances, I could think of nothing I’d like better than being stuck with you fifty miles from nowhere.”

Her mouth parted in a gasp, and Jarrett groaned in defeat. “Rae, if I was the kind of man who could let himself want, you’d be just about perfect.”

“Hardly perfect,” she said on a choked whisper.

“Feels that way to me.” He lowered his mouth toward hers…
