Together in one volume, the four stories of the Scott Brothers and the women destined to them. Four male witches. Two Sets of twins. Born with a dark curse. Unlimited power bequeathed to the four when used together. A seductive power that over time will destroy their souls. To fight the prophecy they are forced to live separately to save themselves. The Bonding: When a Tarot Historian shows up with stolen family cards and a theory of balance, all hell breaks loose as Graelen and Rena race to uncover the clues that will break the curse. The Burning: Cash Scott has drifted for years, abusing his magick and playing the bad boy. Now as his time as a free witch is coming to an end, he plans a last ditch effort to save his brothers. What he finds instead is himself on a collision course with Selene, a hot little firestarter with a death wish, unable to control her power or escape her past. The perfect woman. Selene's accidental contact with a dark force she can't define, throws her into a situation unlike any she has seen before. But the last thing she needs right now is an all-consuming attraction to a man she can't trust. Determined to make her escape any way that she can, she find herself in lust and on the run with another man who doesn't seem surprised by her ability. Together they must fight against a centuries old curse, a vicious hit man and a bounty hunter witch determined to capture them all. Will a little magic be enough to bind their fiery love or be just enough to destroy them? The Healing: Dennison Scott is destined to succumb to his dark magick unless he finds and takes his empathic mate, a female born into the prophecy.
