Two sworn enemies who can't resist each other. Something has to give.
The Blakes and the Cavenders have been going at it since 1870 and Vienna Blake keeps up the family tradition, gunning for the Cavenders at every opportunity. All the same, she's shocked when Mason Cavender confronts her in her office and accuses her of murder. Vienna has the stunningly sexual Mason thrown out by security, but she can't rid herself so easily of her powerful, instant attraction to the woman she's been groomed since childhood to destroy.
Last in a long line of "Cursed Cavenders," as the media describes them, Mason has just walked away from the small plane crash that killed her brother. Now in charge of her family's crumbling business empire, she suspects sabotage and believes beautiful, ruthless Vienna Blake is responsible. Fearing for her life and grieving for her brother, Mason hires a private investigator to get evidence she can take to the police. She is frustrated when the man finds nothing but makes the bizarre suggestion that she hire a psychic to undo the "curse" on her family. He gives her a name. Phoebe Temple. Phoebe's dreams have always centered on the victims of crimes, and she isn't surprised when the woman steps from her dreams into her life, asking for help.
Exposing family secrets always comes at a price. With passion and family honor in the balance, Mason is willing to pay her dues. But can she persuade Vienna to accept a truce before it's too late? Dark Garden brings together two powerful women who must confront the past if they want to seize the future.
