With the holidays upon him, Shado Jackson is trying to deal with the memory of his late brother. Working undercover, his focus is on the Imperial Hotel, once a western bordello called the Sweet Magnolia. Then, on a lonely winter's night, an Angel walks out of the darkness and sends his libido into a tailspin. Unsure of how this tantalizing beauty fits into his life, he can't fight his burning desire to not only protect her, but to possess her.
Lost in a time that is not her own, Angel is on a mission. But before she knows what's happening, she finds herself thrust into a chaotic situation that puts her in too close proximity to a dangerously sexy man. Not sure of his intentions, she agrees to his protection, but soon things begin to heat up. Craving his kiss and longing to know every inch of him, she allows herself to ride the waves of ecstasy offered by his touch.
Forced together by a power greater than either of them, can Shado protect the woman who can replace years of pain with a lifetime of pleasure? Or will he lose a love that has spanned the ages?
