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.

Coincidental chance

Mallory couldn't believe that her grandmother had served Hadeon in the past. To think she was just thinking how they would get along if they had met each other!

"Selia. A twistful name," Hadeon remarked and when Mallory gave him a questioning look, he said, "She must have changed her name after I went to sleep, because I knew her as Elisa the witch."

"So serphants are witches," Mallory murmured. 

"Not really. Serphants don't have to be all witch. Sometimes they are vampires, sometimes another kind. The witches are usually ones who have a conflict of interest within themselves," Hadeon stated, before taking a closer look at the book in his hand that belonged to Mallory's grandmother. "At least it removes the mystery on who moved my coffin from the original place."
