  About Heart of the Devil

  It started as a game. She was nothing but my pawn.

  * * *

  But I was quick to see the error in my ways, and now she is everything I never knew I needed.

  * * *

  The value of a woman like India Baptiste is beyond measure.

  * * *

  But the problem with being a man like me? I’ve already screwed this up, and there’s no guarantee India will take me on for one last bet.

  * * *

  I’ll do what ever I have to do. Drop to my knows and offer her the only thing I have left. The one thing that’s only ever been hers—the heart of the devil.

  * * *

  Heart of the Devil is the third book in the Forge Trilogy and should be read after Deal with the Devil and Luck of the Devil.

  Fire on the water. Every captain’s worst nightmare, and this one was growing by the minute.

  Bolting from my office, I snagged the keys lying on the counter in Isaac’s spacious kitchen and ran out of the house, heading for the stairs carved into the cliff that led down to the dock.

  I’d lost track of time as I’d worked, and I had no idea how long Isaac had been gone. He took his small fishing boat out to catch lunch for his birthday, because according to him, there was no day better spent. I’d been planning to go with him, but a call had come in that couldn’t be ignored.

  Pirates off the coast of Africa had been spotted stalking one of Isaac’s ships. Isaac had winked and told me to handle it.

  “You’re more than capable. That’s why you’ll inherit the fleet and everything I’ve built someday. God put you on my ship for a reason. You’re my legacy, Jericho.”
