The de Vincent brothers are backâ€”and so is the intrigue that surrounds themâ€”in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentroutâ€™s sizzling new novel . . .
Nicolette Bresson never thought sheâ€™d return to the de Vincentsâ€™ bayou compound. Itâ€™s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up . . . and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikkiâ€™s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expectedâ€”especially since he seems determined to be in Nikkiâ€™s space as much as possible.
Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. Heâ€™d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl heâ€™s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman . . . one whoâ€™s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safeâ€”and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.
