Fernando del Fuego was created to take over his father’s empire. He has zero interest in the politics of vampires. He would much rather pursue a life of music. People died because of his apathy.
Melinda is strong-willed and focused. As a wolf-shifter and therapist specializing in patients with PTSD, she has the calmness and perseverance to help those who need her. She can tell there’s more to Fernando than a vampire-musician super-ego combination.
Determined to prove he is more than a self-centered mistake, Fernando stumbles into unexpected peril. Even though wolves and vampires have never played well together, nothing is going to stop Melinda from protecting whom she holds dear.

Legatum Book 5
Wow. This is a new to me author and I absolutely am a fan. This book was amazing. Bobby was a flawed alpha who has a secret and Ramona is the new girl in town. They form an unlikely friendship but can it be more? Can he change? Can she see beyond his reputation? Can she live with his secret? This book is so good I couldn’t put it down even on vacation…on a boat…in a lake.
As far as Bobby is aware, he is the only one of his kind—a true lone wolf. He fills his days with running his bar, and his nights with emotionless encounters. After all, hooking up with him, the self-proclaimed town man-whore, is as easy as crashing into his buggy in the grocery store. Everything changes when he sees an angel.
When new math teacher Ramona moves to town, Bobby sees a glow around her and is convinced she’s the angel he can finally trust with what he really is. He just has to get her to trust him first…
Ramona is no angel; she’s run away from a relationship gone bad in the big city, to a small town where football is king. The last thing she needs or wants is the town playboy pursuing her. She doesn’t want a man. Doesn’t need one. Her focus is on making sure the star quarterback passes high school math. Her plans fly out the window when Bobby makes an oddball request.
Bobby finally finds a way to be with her—convincing her she can teach him how to be friends with a woman—he’s put himself in the worst position. He has Ramona, but not the way he wants. She’s learning to trust him, but his reputation is holding her back. Can Bobby trust her with the secret he’s managed to keep his whole life? Or will his past put Ramona in danger?
