Blurb

I have the best job in the universe—I treat omegas in heat. I’ve been doing it for seventeen years and can safely say that I’m immune to that inconvenient sickness called love.

I’m the great Walter Sébastien, the preeminent heat teacher with an internationally famous magic dick and the self-control of a martial-arts monk. I’m a sex god with a heart of stone, an invincible pleasure master, your can-go-all-night-long fantasy lover, the emperor of orgasms… He Who Would Never Fall Again.

Then one day, a nerdy little single dad with trembling fingers and inconspicuous glasses smiles at me, and I’m screwed. I’m not supposed to go down like this. I’ve never even kissed a client, let alone fallen for one.

Except Daniel Chevalier isn’t like any other client.

Potential trigger: Sexual assault is briefly mentioned as one character’s memory in a way which could be triggering to some readers.

Until death does us part, but it’s knocking on our door…

I’d had enough. That’s how I found myself in a dingy alleyway with my revolver in my hand. I was sick and dying anyway, and there was nothing I could do about it. Nothing except maybe taking back some shred of control by going out on my own terms.

One deep breath. Two… Three… Four…

Surrounded by the darkness of my own mind, this was the only solution I could see, but before I could do something I’d regret, rock star Anno Goodkind crashed into my life and flipped it upside down.

It was supposed to be one casual hookup. No complications and definitely no feelings. No, the most logical thing to do would be to stuff my emotions down so nobody got hurt. Especially not him. But nobody told me that love didn’t give a damn about logic.

CONTENT WARNING: This story has a HEA but deals with heavy themes of illness, suicide, anxiety, and depression. Reader discretion is advised.

Synopsis

Working as a paranormal private investigator has its trials. I’m busy, which is excellent, but there are more people, alive and otherwise, after me than ever before. The Other Side has stepped up their game. The Fallen are trying to strong-arm me into joining their ranks; they feel I’m the perfect person to aid in their eventual rise to world power, and they don’t give a damn what I have to say about it. Then there’s the Catholic Church. Apparently, they’ve painted a giant bullseye on my back. That keeps you looking over your shoulder, I’ll tell you.

Oh, and did I mention the bastard who abandoned my mother and me when I was born wants to repair a relationship we never had in the first place?

Just another day in the life of Rian MacCaren—that’s me, by the way. I solve mysteries, and I see things… things other people don’t. First, dreams plagued me. Now they’ve escalated to visions. Aside from keeping myself alive, my next step is to use my gift, or curse however you want to look at it, to figure out who killed the woman we just discovered in the basement of an abandoned house. Who was she, and why is she dressed in a wedding gown?
