Holly Evernight hasn’t forgotten anything about her captivity or about William Thorne — the man she was forced to operate on, replacing his heart with a clockwork mechanism. William is still caught in a nightmare too horrible for him to control. He’s capable of many things, murder being one of them. As the ideal assassin, he goes after Holly when a contract is put out on her life. Because of her power over metal Holly is able to calm William and ease his pain. The instant she touches him, he returns to sanity and she feels an undeniable pull. William and Holly forge a bond that lures them into passion — a desire neither understands until they face those who want Holly dead. (FOREVER, Sep., 432 pp., $7.99)
