Beauty and the Immortal: It started with a dig

[Mature Content] Some things are best left undisturbed for a reason. Especially ones that are buried in the ground.  Thirteen years after the incident at Winchester Manor, Mallory Winchester resides with her uncle and his family. She is to wed a baron. However, Mallory faces betrayal. Desperate, she sets out looking for the buried artefact that she once believed was a joke told by her grandmother.  But what do you do if you don't find the object, but a person instead? And not just any person, but an immortal being who was never meant to see daylight ever again.  Mallory is convinced that whoever created Hadeon Van Doren must have mixed in generous doses of evil, sadistic nature, and dangerously handsome looks. Now, besides her initial problem, she must find a manual to tame this person who is looking at her as if she is his next meal, as well as tame her.

"You're serious?" Mallory asked, her eyes wide. Another woman in love with him? "If that's true, I don't think we should be asking for her help." She wasn't sure if Ivy had done it on purpose, but she didn't want to risk it with a witch involved.

"Relax, monkey," Hadeon replied calmly. "I was being sarcastic. You need to learn to take a joke." He started walking again, a sly smile playing on his lips. 

Mallory glared at the pureblooded vampire. Catching up to him, she said, "I thought you didn't joke."

"What are you saying? I always joke." Hadeon softly huffed, then playfully chided her, "You haven't been paying attention. Besides, did you not see the love and affection shared?"

Mallory murmured, "Something tells me your definition of love is quite different from others," thinking of the witch who had attacked them with poisonous spikes.

"What gives it away?" Hadeon grinned, eyes twinkling with mischief.
