Evangeline's eighteenth birthday is looming in the distance, the day the dark deity will demand his payment.
The only person in her small town of Carrefour, Louisiana that can help is as infuriating as he is scorching hot. Étienne Benoit is not only a mysterious Cajun living deep in the swamp, but he's also rumored to know a thing or two about voodoo.
As the two race against the clock to save Evangeline's soul while trying not to strangle each other, they unlock a powerful magic that has been buried for generations. And the king isn't playing by voodoo's rules of balance anymore.
Will Étienne be able to face his own darkness and save Evangeline's soul before she turns eighteen? Or will she be claimed by the voodoo king for eternity?
