After agonizing months of suppressing her true feelings, it took one passion-filled night for Teresa Bodnar to realize that she was in love with her friend, the deliciously dominant Eric Yun, a revelation that had her running scared. Months later, the two are closer than ever... and yet they couldn't be further apart. Feeling that keeping both Eric and herself in the dreaded "friend-zone" is the only way to save the man she loves from worse pain, Tera throws herself into her work, determined to turn The Loft into the paradise and safe-haven she envisioned it as.
Ever since they met, Eric has only had eyes for Tera. Too stubborn to move on despite his better judgment, he'll take what he can get from the woman he's fallen in love with. But he's determined to be part of the happy ending he knows she deserves, even if she doesn't believe it herself. Two things he didn't count on? Some billionaire bastard way too interested in both Tera and The Loft, and the demons Eric thought he'd conquered years ago coming back to haunt him...
When a wealthy and mysterious patron turns up at The Loft with a tempting offer and eerie reminders of her past, Tera must confront her deepest fears. But it's not just her heart that's at stake. Friendships will be tested, limits will be pushed, and Tera will have to decide between taking a chance on love, and letting go of Eric forever...

When she’s not busy reading, writing, binge-watching Game of Thrones, or doing a million other important things, Siena enjoys traveling, archery, and getting lost in the woods (also known as “hiking”). She and her better half/writing buddy/sometimes Sir/sex muse live together in Pittsburgh. Their dream is to relocate to the middle of nowhere and build a castle capable of withstanding the impending zombie apocalypse.
