"I would give anything..."
Whisper those words and catch the attention of Louis the Charmer. He'll happily give you what you think you want... all you have to do is give him something he desires. Easiest handshake you'll ever make, right? Wrong.
Willow made a deal once and she's been paying for it ever since. Cursed, she is called "The Walking Temptation" and is doomed to forever taint those around her, but that doesn't mean Xander hasn't tried to prove her wrong. Cursed or not, he can't stay away from her even if he wanted to now, and he has a secret, which could lead to both their undoing.
Meanwhile, Ava has a dark, painful, truth that's been hidden for thousands of years. When Marcus shows up unannounced, it is clear that he has something to do with her past. Betrayal and lies normally don't come from angels, but Ava's only half divine and when the truth about her past is revealed, she has no place to hide.
Her desperation is a call Louis the Charmer is all too eager to answer- will she strike a bargain with him or is she doomed even more than Willow?
