Gabriel Borelli was born a warrior. He's dedicated to avenging his father's murder and protecting his mother, who's living under a centuries-old curse. He can't allow anything to distract him from his course...not even the one woman who may hold the key to all he desires.
Shea Tedaldi and her young brother hold a powerful magic men will kill to possess. She needs a hero who won't falter in the face of danger. Gabriel is that hero, even if he refuses. But she won't take no for an answer.
Neither of them expected such searing heat to explode between them. And if that heat consumes them, it could destroy the very things they've vowed to protect.
