Melanie Newton might have taken a shortcut to the grave, but she took to her second life with an ease that surprised everyone. Everything in her life seems to have finally slotted into place—well, apart from a certain stubborn-as-hell, sexy-as-sin warlock. The most frustrating part is she knows he feels the same, but all the obstacles keep their fire at a frustrating simmer. So far, Melanie doesn’t know how to light things up for good.
Ricky Moore hasn’t had a good few months. He’s struggling with his feelings about his growing power, battling addiction, and learning he has a five-year-old kid—all of which really messes with a guy’s head. Fresh from rehab, Ricky is certain, more now than ever before, that Lanie is the one for him. This time, he’s finally ready to play for keeps—if she’ll have him.
When Melanie and Ricky are sent undercover to find out who’s responsible for the drug wreaking havoc on the supernatural community—the same drug that turned Ricky into an addict—Melanie comes face to face with someone from her past who threatens to destroy everything. The lines between what’s real and what’s for the job are about to be blurred into obscurity, but neither of them seems to care.
The spark they shared has always been combustible, but now it seems unstoppable. In the end, will true love be enough to save them or is someone destined to get burned?
SHORTCUT TO THE GRAVE is the sixth novel in the best-selling EVER CHACE CHRONICLES.
