A seductive magic mirror lies hidden deep in a demon's lair, with a simple warning: don't stare at the glass…
Ice is a thief and a scammer - a troubled fairy trying her best to eke out a meagre living in the squalid underworld of the Shadowfae. When she spends a hot night with a demon lord, she discovers a powerful magic mirror in his lair - and pilfers it, knowing it's the key to escaping her bleak life as a two-bit con artist. But Ice soon discovers that its power comes with a price… madness, which is slowly overtaking her.
Indigo oozes darkness, danger and tempting sensuality. He's been sent to destroy Ice and bring the mirror back to its rightful owner. A mission that, if he fails, will cost him his life. But when he meets Ice, he faces an even greater challenge: an insatiable sexual hunger that neither of them can deny, and dark passions that threaten to claim them both forever. The trouble is, the longer he stays within the mirror's reach, the greater its hold on his sanity - and his determination to save Ice…
