All’s fair in love and war when specialist Jane Larson and Captain Barnaby Blackstone give into their lust for each other while stationed in Vietnam. As the world disintegrates around them, their one night of passion ends with her evacuation back to stateside duty.

Years later, Jane is neck deep in an undercover DEA operation gone horribly wrong. Kidnapped and then committed to an asylum, she has no hope of escape from the clutches of a notorious cult leader. The only thing that sustains her through the pain is her memories of Barnaby—even as she knows she’ll never be with him again.

Little does she realize that Barnaby has spent several of his years as an immortal, Indebted killer yearning for the fierce and beautiful woman who had unlocked hope in his cold, hard soul. When his sixth sense leads him to her hospital room, he sets her free, but in the process attracts the attention of an otherworldly maniac intent on revenge. To save Jane from the dark forces surrounding her, Barnaby must reveal his deepest secret. Can she live with the man he’s destined to be, or will the truth leave her lost to him forever?

My Thoughts - Story
Throughout this series, we have met Peter, Dante and Ruth and each time Barnaby was there as a human helping each one break their contract (without spelling it out word for word).

Now we finally get to read Barnaby’s story of his true love, Jane.

I was ecstatic when Ms. David told me that she had a novella coming out about this hero and I couldn’t get my hands on it fast enough. And, again, she transform my boring, simple life into one of adventure, danger and love.

Ms. David’s writing is perfect, especially her descriptive terms and ability to launch the reader into the scenes that unfold.

We travel back to the late 1960’s in Vietnam where Barnaby and Jane spend time together knowing that the lust and love they feel for each other is unforgettable. But circumstances arise and they are separated and years later Barnaby is an immortal while Jane is in trouble.

Will these two reunite? And will Barnaby figure out how to become mortal again?

By: Jillian David
Publication Date: September 14, 2015

When Civil War nurse Ruth Blackstone sacrificed her soul to save her husband’s life, he utterly betrayed her trust. Now, 150 years later, she’s still stuck killing depraved souls to feed her devil of a boss, Jerahmeel. She’s never been one for hair-brained schemes or sweet-talking flirts. That is, until she meets Cajun rogue Odie Pierre-Noir.

Odie has the research and the war plan to overthrow Jerahmeel and win freedom for all Indebteds. There’s just one hitch: he needs Ruth to act as bait. With charm on his side, he shows Ruth an intense passion she’s never experienced before.

Now Ruth must make the hardest decision of her long, damned life: continue in relative safety as an Indebted with Odie as her lover, or risk their eternal souls for one chance to break the curse. Will she choose the lesser evil?
