Synopsis

The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel…

Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up… and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.

Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman… one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

Mary’s 5 Star Review

Take me to New Orleans, because I need to meet the de Vincents. I would even spend the night at their creepy cursed mansion. There just are some things that you know that will be totally worth it.  Moonlight Seduction the second book, and so far my favorite of the series thus far continues the crazy, and mysterious goings on with the deVincent brothers. It is a page turner, and if you are a fan of the slow burn romance then you will most definitely want to dive into this one. 

This book centers around Gabe, the middle brother, and the one coined as demon. He is anything but in my eyes, but in the walls of the deVincent mansion he has hidden plenty of dark secrets. Nikki is a bit younger then him, and they met years earlier, as her parents are devoted servants to the family. When Nikki takes the place of her mother as she battles cancer, she is brought back into the deVincent fold. Gabe, and Nikki have a tumultuous history, and neither one knows how to act around the other. It’s been a long time since they have seen each other, and even though their romance is forbidden, there are some things that you just can’t control. These two have a connection that neither of them knows how to break. They begin a new relationship based on friendship that slowly grows into a bond that they never imagined was possible. Then some strange things happen in the house which is the norm, but when the danger becomes more then a little bump in the night, Gabe and Nikki need to face what is to come.

Reading a Jennifer Armentrout book is pure bliss for me. There is nothing I enjoy more. What I love about this series is that the mystery, and suspense is tied together to one ultimate finally. It’s like a classic mystery and if Agatha Christie was still alive this one would give her a run for her money. 

The deVincents definitely look better as the words inside the book. My imagination has made them to be the essential, and romantic heroes we have always dreamed of. I CAN NOT with for Devlin’s book.  Please, please, read this series. The amount of good that will come out of it will be never ending. 

 

Excerpt

He moved forward, maybe a foot or two, but stopped like one would if they were approaching a rabid dog. A heartbeat passed. “Your hair . . .” He tilted his head to the side. “It’s different.” 

“Yeah, it is.” Her hair used to be a rather dull medium brown, but then she found this amazing hair stylist in Tuscaloosa and turned her brown hair into this array of blondes and browns, using some weird technique called balayage. “It’s basically just highlights and stuff.” “Stuff.”

His gaze flickered over the bun. Uncomfortable, she scanned the kitchen. “And my hair is longer. A lot longer.” 

His brows lifted. 

Was she really telling him the length of her hair? This was the most strained conversation she’d ever had in her life. And that was, well, it was sad. She peeked at him. It used to not be this way. Back before . . . well, before she ruined everything, he’d be teasing her and asking about her college. He’d be talking to her like he could actually stand being in the same room with her. 

She needed this conversation to be over like it was yesterday and she also needed to figure out how she could work here and not run into Gabe. The house was big enough that it should be possible. “I need to get back to—” 

“Planting your face against the over door?” 

Her shoulders slumped. “Actually, I need to finish the potatoes. So, if you’ll excuse me.” She started to turn away, praying that he’d just leave. 

“That’s it? That’s all you have to say to me? Because I have a lot I need to say to you,” he said. “Never in a million years did I think I’d see you here again.” 

Nikki’s spine stiffened like steel had been poured into it. Oh God. Her throat spasmed. 

“We need to talk.” 

“No we don’t,” she said quickly. “We do not need to talk about anything.” 

“Bullshit,” he snapped, and his voice was so much closer that she turned to him on instinct. 

Gabe was now at the edge of the massive island, only two or three feet from her. She stepped back into the counter. Her heart thundered in her chest as her gaze flicked to the kitchen door. 

“No one is coming near here,” he said as if reading her mind. Her gaze flew back to his. “Dev is in his office on the second floor, in a meeting and your father is out with the landscaper. No one is going to hear us.” 

A weird mixture of sensations assaulted her. One was a chill that skated down her spine. The other was a tight, hot shiver that danced over her skin. 

Gabe kept coming at her, not stopping until he was right in front of her, separated by a few inches. She sucked in air, catching the crisp, clean scent of his cologne. It reminded her of storms, of that night

That was the last thing she wanted to be reminded of. 

Like his brother, he was a good head and then some taller than her, so right now, her eyes were fastened to his chest. 

Thank God he was wearing a shirt. 

“I . . . I don’t want to talk,” she managed to say. 

“I do.” 

“Gabe—” 

“You owe me this.”

Her body jerked as she pressed her lips together. He was right. She owed him a conversation. “Okay.” 

There was another beat of silence and then he asked in a voice so low she almost didn’t believe she heard him right. 

“Did I hurt you that night?”
