Book Information:

Three novellas set in The Hollow, a gated community on a private island that homes the ruling vampires, their legion, and many other vampires and humans. It is not necessary to have read the earlier books in the series, but it may help.
SHATTERED - Max and Paige
If there was one thing Paige West thought she knew for sure, it was that Max Kincaid did not like her. So when an argument between them ends in an explosive kiss, she’s more than stunned. Even more shocking? He proposes a deal—she’ll spend three nights in his bed, they’ll burn off the relentless sexual chemistry, and then they’ll each go their own way. Sounds simple. What could go wrong? Nothing, providing she can walk away emotionally unscathed. The trouble is … she’s not so certain she can.
ENTICED - Damien and Lexi
None of Lexi Solomon’s life plans had included living on an island filled with supposedly mythical creatures. Being inexplicably drawn to one of them isn’t so great, considering relationships between humans and vampires have no future, but Damien Addams compels her like nothing else. He also wants her in his bed. More, he wants to claim her as his vessel, meaning no vampire but him will be allowed to feed from her. Tempting. But it would also be reckless … because she’s falling too fast and too hard for a man she can’t keep.
DARED - Ryder and Maya
Maya Duncan knows that moving on from Ryder Kingsley won’t be easy, even if all they had was a brief fling before he left for a six-month-long trip. Well now he’s back, and it’s clear he has no interest in picking up where they left off. But after a group game of Truth or Dare forces them to put their hands on each other again, their resolve to keep their distance crumbles into nothing. But can the fling amount to more this time round, or are the rumours true? Is Ryder too deep in grief over a woman he lost to ever truly move forward?

CHAPTER ONE

(Paige)

I paused in bopping my head to the music as my friend sidled up to me, looking rather red in the face. “You’re blushing,” I said. “Why are you blushing?”

Ava glanced around, ensuring no one at the afterparty was close enough to overhear. “You can’t tell anyone. I mean, the guys probably wouldn’t care, but they are kind of shy and likely wouldn’t be making out in a dark corner if they were happy to go public.” She twiddled her fingers. “What do you think?”

I turned to fully face her, now the height of intrigued. “I think you need to tell me who’s getting it on.” But the small brunette hesitated. I groaned. “Come on, Ava, you can’t let something like that slip and then clamp those lips shut. Tell me who you saw making out.”

She leaned toward me and whispered, “David and Denny.”

My brows flew up. “Really? My, my, my.”

She smiled. “I know, right? I’m kind of excited, because they really suit each—Dude, no, you can’t go look.”

“Oh, I only want a little peek. Guy-on-guy action can be hot.”

“Don’t be a perve.”

I snorted. “Like you don’t want to go watch more of the show.”

Ava tried stifling an impish smile but failed. “Okay, I kind of do. We can’t, though. It would be wrong.”

“So very, very wrong. Which makes it hotter.”

“Girl, you’re in dire need of getting laid, aren’t you?”

Undeniably, but ... “We’re not talking about me. We’re talking about David and Denny.” The two males were part of the Grand High Vampires’ legion made up of over a hundred vamps. There was only one female squad—Ava and I were both part of it. “I’m not really surprised that this happened. Something’s been brewing between them for a while.”

“I know. I hope it’s serious. They’re so cute together.” She let out a dreamy sigh. “Let’s not say anything about it to anyone else. It’s their news to tell. I know it’s hard keeping secrets on such a tiny island, but we can at least let them be the ones to spread the news—or not.”

I nodded. “Agreed. We say nothing.” The aforementioned tiny island was privately owned by the Grand High Pair and set in the Caribbean on which our gated community known as The Hollow had been built. There was no way to get bored here, because there was plenty of entertainment, including a nightclub, cinema, and bowling alley.

Hearing a loud laugh, I looked over to see another of my squad members, Alora, leaning into her mate, Evan, while chuckling at something one of the many party guests was saying. I nudged Ava and tipped my chin in Alora’s direction. “She looks so happy. And Evan looks so smug.”

Ava snickered. “Well of course he does. He’s been pressuring Alora to Bind herself to him for a while now.”

I understood why Alora had hesitated to rush into anything with Evan. It was no small thing to enter into a Binding considering a psychic link formed between the couple that was so invasive your partner would feel your emotions, hunger, mood, and even be able to sense your location.

For a long time, it was believed that such connections could only be broken by death, but my best friend and fellow squad member, Imani, had the ability to sever such links, including blood ties. Still, no one would ever make such a commitment lightly.

Bindings were week-long celebrations that culminated in a beautiful ceremony. The festivities featured everything from fancy dinners to paintballing, depending on the couple. And as Evan was the Grand High Pair’s Heir, master vampires had come from far and wide to attend.

The grand garden was decorated beautifully with butterfly lights, torches, and candles. Many tables circled the man-made dance floor, which was currently far from empty. Most of the dancers were vampires, but a few were intoxicated humans—feeding from them was the only way our kind could get drunk. Many vampires were blitzed at this point. And since such celebrations could go on past dawn, most would be absolutely hammered when the afterparty came to an end. It wasn’t unusual for some to crash on the beach and sleep the day away after such events. Contrary to popular belief, sunlight didn’t hurt us.

I was ever so slightly on the tipsy side, but I hadn’t fed from more than one drunken human tonight. Mostly because I was still bloated from the Binding feast. Vampires didn’t need solid food to survive, but we certainly indulged.

“Evan’s looking mighty fine in that tux,” Ava commented. She slid me a mischievous look before tipping her chin toward a particular cluster of guys. “Max is looking rather dashing, too.”

I ignored the flutter in my stomach. It didn’t matter what the male in question was wearing—he always looked like he’d just stepped right out of a ‘Sexiest Men Alive’ article. Long and lean and muscled, Max Kincaid was all kinds of delicious. His watchful eyes made me think of a mountain lake—cool, calm, startingly blue. His mouth was nothing short of carnal; it could curve into a warm, sexy as shit smile just as easily as a cruel, you’re-so-fucking-dead grin.
