Dark Garden

By Jennifer Fulton

Dark Vista Series | Book 3

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.

A bodyguard gig for a celebrity on a tropical island...there are worse ways to make a living.

As wholesome Dr. Kate in the hottest soap on daytime television, Lauren Douglas is promoted to her audience as a role model for young women.

Suffering from burnout, Pat is taking a few months’ break, working in private security. The last thing she expects is to find herself babysitting a celebrity who has been banished to a desert island by her father, while the cops hunt down the guy who wants to kill her.

Cute, confused, self-conscious, and emotionally vulnerable. It’s almost too easy.

Scientist Grace Ramsay takes one look at the young woman limping into the villa next door and decides Dawn is just what she needs: a distraction. Tasked with evaluating Moon Island for a chemicals giant looking for a waste dump far from civilization, Grace feels increasingly uneasy about her job. She usually responds to stress by having good sex, and it sure looks like Dawn could use a confidence booster, given the scars she’s so sensitive about.

After surviving a hurricane on Moon Island a year earlier, champion swimmer Dawn Beaumont vowed she would never return. But here she is, taking refuge after a car crash that claimed the life of a teammate. Haunted by guilt and bitter over the injuries that have ended her Olympic dream, she is in no mood to be hit on by a player like Grace, who acts like she’s doing her some kind of favor.

As sparks fly between the two women, Annabel Worth, the owner of the island, refuses to sell her home to the chemicals conglomerate, but then her plane goes down in the Pacific under suspicious circumstances.
