Benella is concerned with two things–avoiding the two village boys who torment her and scrounging for food to help feed her family. Unfortunately, the best wild fruit and vegetables are near the walls of the estate, a dark misty place inhabited by an unforgiving beast. When her tormentors lock her behind the massive gates, Benella knows her fate is sealed. Yet, the fate isn’t one she expects. Her encounter with the beast starts a bizarre cycle of bargaining for her freedom, a freedom the beast seems determined to see her lose.
When I see the yellow eviction notice taped to my front door, I know it’s going to be an interesting day. But when I march into the property manager’s office, I don’t expect to have my rent paid by a mysterious man with gorgeous green eyes and a suit that hugs all the right body parts. Daniel Meyers isn’t concerned about being repaid for his good deed. All he wants is me, and every time he flashes me that dimpled smile I find it harder to resist.

Falling for my brother’s best friend?
I’m not making that mistake again.
I was already burned once, so he can keep his diamond ring to himself.
