This sensual novella (an intermediate length) is a foray into the wild side: Leyana is a creature of beauty...a creature of fire. She looks like an angel, but she's driven by a geas - one acquired on the night she died. She spends her evenings exacting revenge on those men who would try to harm what she's become. Only a man of strong heart can survive her allure - while at the same time reaching her deeply enough to free her from the geas. Paul Campbell might be that man...or he might lose himself to her altogether.
