In the Cage, nothing is what it seems. It’s inescapable. And I’m dead in the sights of four insatiable and sexy men.
My name is Lu Darke. I’m a witch by birth and an arsonist by accident, but I never thought I’d find myself in a place like this. Cimmerian Reform Academy, called ‘the Cage’ by its students, was once an asylum, but now I’m forced to call it home.
My roommate hates me, the Headmistress has a sinister agenda, and worst of all, students have a habit of dying young and fast in the Cage. If I don’t watch my step, I might be the next to go, but help could come from dangerous places… for a price.
Roman and Shane were imprisoned for illegal shifting, and they look at me like they want to rip off my clothes with their fangs.
Professor Steele is a hard taskmaster whose special brand of punishment leaves me craving more.
And in the darkness beneath the Cage lurks the most deadly of predators- Locke, a vampire who walks through my dreams with a thirst for more than my blood.
Secrets lie in wait behind the black doors, students vanish overnight, and everyone hides what they really want. In the case of these four, however, what they want is crystal clear: me.
Life in the Cage is already hard, and my four gorgeous guardians aren’t making it any easier.
I’m Lu Darke, student, prisoner, and wielder of the rare magic wildfire. The Headmistress of the Cimmerian Reform Academy is definitely up to something sinister, but I’m not escaping the Cage until I’ve unraveled its mysteries. A mysterious ghost is following me, a new Divination professor is taking my nemesis under her wing, and Holly’s sketchbook promises a grim future.
I’m not going down without a fight.
Roman Frost ripped my heart open and he’s back for more, but there’s no way I’m letting him in again.
Shane is my pillar and champion, but the territorial need to mark me is driving him mad, and his visions grow darker by the day.
Professor Steele has promised me his heart, but whatever he’s hiding might be an insurmountable obstacle between us.
And Locke has finally ventured from the depths of Cimmerian. It hurts him to be so close to my blood without a taste, and he can’t fight his true nature forever.
Cimmerian’s secrets are much darker than I ever could have believed, and they threaten to destroy us all- but one of my protectors might be the key.
When darkness descends, secrets come to light…
Just when I thought I could be happy in the walls of the Cage with my four dark protectors, everything crumbled beneath my feet. Three of them have marked me. Two are bound to my soul. And one has been lying from the day we met.
With Locke’s grip on sanity slowly unraveling, the Frosts taken over by their fiercely territorial natures, and Dominic’s unrelenting thirst for revenge, it’s all I can do to hold us together.
Because it’s time to take the fight to the darkness and burn out the corruption with wildfire. And if we make it out alive… Cimmerian will be ours.
