The year was 1926. Glamour, riches, and greed filled the air, but under the façade of glitter and gold lay truths much darker, more sinister, and entirely less human…
Adeline Colton was cursed. Everyone in Georgia knew the devil walked her farm, and maybe they were right, because each month she had dreams—visions of a dark prince and a shadowed forest, a creature so wrong, temptation lurked beneath her skin.
So after escaping to New York City, it’s no surprise that her bad fortune follows. Only this time, it’s in the form of Jack Warren: millionaire bootlegger, infamous gangster, and criminal who makes Addie his fervent obsession.
Jack is everything Addie should avoid, but the more she resists his pull, the deeper she’s drawn into his extravagant world. Lured by a life of freedom and desire, Adeline must make a choice: heed her family’s warnings or follow Jack into the dark. But when fate binds them together, Jack is revealed to be something else—not man, not beast, not even the devil, but a creature much much worse.
