Note: Tempting The Gorgon is a small town paranormal romance with adult themes and content.

The Gorgon
I spent the last century tied to a male who saw my power as a way to keep his control. A century of commands I had no will of my own to resist left restless anger deep in my bones.
But that was before. This is now.
I find myself on an island for monsters like me, where my power isn't something wielded for a weak man's. My magic is my own.
I'm my own person again.
My gaze. My snakes. My body. My soul.
It's all about me right now. Which mostly involves opening my own business, sorting through my trauma, and avoiding a cocky vampire that reminds me too much of my past.
Even if he makes me feel things I thought I was too broken to experience.

The Vampire
I made it two centuries on this planet without catching feelings. I dated, sure. A lot. I found pleasure. A lot. But did I fall in love? Never. I was vehemently against it.
Until a painfully beautiful female with serpents for hair changed my mind when I first breathed in her delectable scent.
As the Fire Council chair for Haven Pass I have no choice but to watch the gorgon closely as she opens a new adult club. Do I normally keep this close an eye on new projects? Sure. Yeah. Absolutely.
It has nothing to do with my sweet venomous female... With her snakes. With her curves. With her need to eviscerate my ego with her sharp tongue and practiced eye roll.
She is nothing like anyone I've ever met.
And despite her pretending otherwise, I know deep down she wants me. She needs me.
But it doesn't matter how she pretends to hate me when her past comes crawling back for her.
Because she's mine.
