My spine went rigid when the male’s scent hit me. A provocative sensual musk, mixed with the sweet tones of vanilla and the beguiling, rough scent of wood smoke.
I found myself leaning slowly away from him, hands curling in the pockets of my baggy jeans. He noticed, sparing me a slight glance before looking away again, disinterested.
Shoulders slumping in relief, I sighed softly, eyes turning back to the teacher. “As most of you may know now, we have the honor of accepting a new student today, will everyone please welcome Ms. Bonnie Harper?”
If ‘welcoming’ meant turning around in your seat and staring at designated newcomer like she was the bearded lady at Uncle Billy’s Freak Show, then obviously I had never been properly welcomed before.
I mouthed a silent “hello” because my voice seemed to have decided to take a sudden vacation, and sank lower in my seat.
In an attempt to escape her abusive father, Bonnie Lee Harper, her mother Dalia, and her little sister Mariel escape to the secluded mountain town, St. Nicklbees. No matter what, they can’t let Mr. Harper find them.
The whole purpose is to remain inconspicuous, and hidden. But when the terrifying, mysterious, sexy, mouthwateringly gorgeous Jango Bellagio (not to mention the infamous local bad-boy) takes an interest in sweet little Bonnie, things start to get difficult and heated.
Not to mention the fact that the elusive Mr. Bellagio seems to have some dirty secrets of his own.
But the one thing Bonnie needs to learn about secrets? They always come back to haunt you.
A story filled with adventure, horror, love, passion and a steamy high school romance
