I regret everything that’s happened since I died.
Possibly everything up until that point as well.
My name is Madoc, and I’ve been ordered to return to London and take up the title which was given to my younger brother, Grayson, in my absence.
I’ve also been ordered to make amends with my family. Impossible.
Until she comes along.
It was my fault really, scaring the wits out of her to the point she fainted. But I cannot in good conscience abandon her to the dark of London. I have to find who she belongs to…
The problem is… I want her and the only way to protect her is to send her away.
There's nobody in my life. No family, no friends. I don't seem to be on the same wavelength as other people, there's just something about me, something that keeps me from clicking with others. It's fine (at least that's what I tell myself) because I looove my work. I'm a researcher and I get obsessed with falling down rabbit holes. Love it. Until I fall down the wrong one and this Alice in Wonderland story becomes so much more than I'm prepared for.
The man who rescues me, kidnaps me, takes me, terrorizes me... it's all semantics when faced with what I feel. Like a lock finding its key. I'll allow him anything, almost. I won't allow him to hide from me, and I won't allow him to walk away when I know... I KNOW... that he feels the same way.
