I wanted to write about the men who live there, give them the ultimate adventure and reward them with the love of their lives. (less)

Mandy looked out the window, shamefaced. "I'd really rather not discuss it, if you don't mind."
"You know, even if he is a friend, I'd be happy to black his eye if-"
"No!"

He looked into that beautiful, treacherous face and a sweep of lust rushed through him. "You want to know who I am? Well, I am the devil incarnate and you,my sweet, are about to pay the devil's due.”
Kat Martin, The Devil's Necklace

“I didn't think you would be able to find me.I was so frightened..."
He took hold of her hand, brought it to his lips. "I would have looked forever if I'd had to.”
