The leaders of my House want her dead. The men I’ve secretly aligned myself with want her punished for screwing up their coup. I’ve been sent by both to deal with her, but one look at the feisty redhead and I’ve got plans of my own. Before I carry out anyone else’s orders, she’s going to give me what I want. And only when I’m satisfied will I decide if she lives or dies. Depending, of course, on just how easily she surrenders to the House of Sin…

“Oh, wow.” Her soft fingertips landed against my ribs and gently traced the long scar that ran vertically down my side. And, holy hell, her touch felt good. Warm, soft, electrifying.
“Does that hurt?” Her gaze lifted to mine, but she didn’t stop touching me. And when I looked over at her, I realized she was close—closer than I’d thought—her lips mere centimeters from mine as she leaned toward me.
“No. It’s still a little numb.”
“So you don’t feel this?” Maybe I was imagining things, but I thought I detected a hint of arousal in her voice as she skimmed the scar again. And even just thinking she was enjoying touching me—any part of me—sent sparks ricocheting from her fingertips straight into my dick.
“Oh, I feel it,” I managed, fighting not to give in to the lust churning inside me.
“You’re right,” she whispered, still not moving back. “It’s definitely a damn cool scar. Mine’s not nearly as cool.”
“You have a scar?”
“Yeah. Motorcycle accident when I was a teenager. Was out in a field with some friends. Got thrown from my bike and hit a rock.”
Merda. You were lucky you weren’t killed.”
“Yeah. Could have hit my head. I was a stupid kid.”
“Up in Scotland.”
I smiled. “No, where’s the scar?”
“Oh.” She reached for the hem of the thin white T-shirt she was wearing and tugged it up and over her head before I even realized what she was doing. In nothing but the cream-colored bra that molded to her sexy breasts, she turned her back toward me and pointed at her shoulder. “Here.”
Mother of God. The image of her in that bra was going to flash in my brain for at least the next week. Swallowing hard, I shifted on the couch so she couldn’t tell what she was doing to me and placed my suddenly shaking fingers on the crescent-shaped scar on the back of her shoulder that was roughly the size of my palm.
“This must have hurt.”
She drew in a breath that lifted her back beneath my hand as I traced the curve of the scar. “Not right now, it doesn’t. Feels bloody good at the moment.”
My fingers stilled against her skin, and my gaze lifted to her face and perfect profile in the dim light. I couldn’t be sure, but I thought I detected a hint of seduction in her voice.
My pulse notched up. I tried not to read too much into that as I looked down at her sexy skin once more. “I think it’s a pretty kick ass scar.”
“Yeah? You don’t think I should get a tattoo to cover it or anything?”
“No way. A woman with scars is mysterious. A survivor. Real. Tattoos are like a mask. Scars are the windows to a person’s history.”
She turned a tiny bit more and met my gaze. And the second I saw the heat in her light green eyes, it was as if another zap of lightning slammed into me and stole my breath. “History, huh?”
I nodded. “They also make for way better stories than a needle and ink.”
Her lips curled. Twisting around, she faced me once more in her bra and tipped her head, but she didn’t move to put her shirt back on. “Can I ask you something?”
“Yeah,” I said slowly. Not because I didn’t want to answer, but because, holy God, her bra was so thin I could see the outline of her areolae through the fabric.
“If I had surrendered to you in that room the way you wanted, would you have really taken me on that bed with the drugged Frenchman passed out on the floor?”
Mother of God... My whole body sizzled at just the thought. “That would have been dependent on your level of kink at the moment. Are you into being watched?”
She shrugged and shot me a sensual grin. “I’m not not into it. I’m definitely not a prude. That would have been a new one for me, though.”
Fuck me. The more time I spent with her, the more she was becoming my ideal woman. I nodded because it was all I could think to do to keep from grabbing her and devouring her, which wasn’t a smart idea in our current situation.
“Speaking of the French guy, there is one other question I have.”
“Oh yeah?” I glanced her way. “What’s that?”
“Well, the guy was a total letch.” She rested her elbow on the back of the couch and perched her head on her hand, sifting her fingers through her silky locks. “He asked me if I wanted him to spank me, which, okay, fine, some women are into. But then he also asked me if I wanted him to make me bark like a dog. Now, I’ve never met a man who could make a woman bark like that, and I’m fairly certain if any man could, it wouldn’t be him. But then you came into the room and got me all hot and bothered with your words and lips and touching and everything, and it made me wonder...”
My whole body was on the verge of exploding. “Wonder what?”
“Well...” Her sultry gaze locked on mine. “It made me wonder if you’re that kind of man.”
Mother of mercy...

Because I understand now that those shadows are not waiting to destroy me as I once feared. They’ve come for him. To steal him away from me for good.

Some doors were never meant to be opened… 

I made a fateful mistake. I should never have peeked behind the doors into his forbidden world. But I did, and now I’m a prisoner. Trapped by the man I thought I loved. The man I once foolishly trusted. The man who, despite his lies and deception, I continue to crave. He can melt my resolve with one rough, whispered demand, and I feel myself giving in to the desire he still stirs inside me. And yet, if I want to survive, I must find a way to escape. Because if I don’t, I’m afraid I’ll be consumed by a shadowy world that will ultimately destroy me. Lost forever in his wicked House of Sin…
