He's been told that good girls like bad boys…and he's as bad as they come.
They call Vaughn Spencer an angry god, but to Lenora Astalis, he is nothing but a heartless prince. His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street—and all Lenora owns is the grudge against him for the time he almost killed her. Not to mention that between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts and noses and rules alike, Vaughn still finds the time to give Lenora hell during their senior year. She fights back tooth and nail…but she never expects him to chase her across the ocean for an art program after graduation.
Now, here they are, living together in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London. He's a fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A dangerous genius. Everyone says that Carlisle Castle is haunted, and Lenora thinks they're right. After all, the castle now hides Lenora and Vaughn's most ghastly secrets, and their paths begin to intertwine in ways they never could have imagined.
Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but he doesn't realize he's slaying Lenora's heart along the way—and some wounds never heal.
She may know his secret…but now he knows her weakness.
