All’s fair in love and the war to win back his fated mate…
Being the daughter of Aries, the God of War, means Jessica Tindal is an Amazon warrior. But she’s given up her bloodthirsty ways to hideout working as an herbal healing witch. Too bad she’s stuck in an Arctic ice station with a killer intent on framing her.
Enter Paranormal Marshall Carson Slater—ice bear shifter, silver-haired hottie, and oh yeah, Jessica’s ex-husband. Carson arrives in Icy Cap determined to do two things: take down the ice station killer and reclaim his wife. His protective instincts drive him to keep her by his side at all times, which plays perfectly into his plan to seduce her back into his bed and his life. Now all he has to do is prove her innocence and win her heart before the real killer strikes again.

Excerpt (Adult Content):
“This person we’re looking for is dangerous.” He rubbed his thumb against his bottom lip.
He did have fantastic lips.
“Someone besides the murderer?” Jessica asked.
His shirt collar was bent slightly. She curled her fingers into her palms to stop herself from smoothing it out.
“Could be a different person. Or the two could be the same. I doubt the two investigations are unrelated.”
“How can I help?” Jessica tilted her head up, up, up to meet his gaze.
“You are to do absolutely nothing with this investigation. You are to do exactly as I tell you so you can say safe.”
“And out of the way.” Jessica fumed. How typical of him.
“This is not the time to play detective. I’m running the investigation with the vamp. Someone will accompany you to breakfast then you may go to your lab until you’re retrieved for dinner.”
She’s forgotten how Carson could be such an arrogant ass.
“So you’re not my jailor?” Jessica headed for the door. Part of her wanted to flee the room.
Part of her wanted to climb that shifter like a monkey tree.
“It’s a sacrifice believe me.” Carson’s voice followed her. “I remember your preference for handcuffs.”
