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.

The warning

Mallory didn't really care if she was part of the royal family or not. All she cared about was knowing about her mother and understanding what happened that had led her to cross paths with her grandmother. 

While Morwenna lit one end of the map for it to catch fire and turn into a piece of ash, Mallory turned to Hadeon and asked, "What now?" 

"Now we plan to travel to the north," Hadeon stated with one corner of his lips curling as if it were the most obvious thing to do. 

"But your castle here and the duties?" Mallory inquired, as he was the lord of these lands. No man ever left everything behind to travel with a person and she stared into his eyes. 

Hadeon stated, "The people who work under me will do their jobs better than ever before. I am sure they are well aware that I wouldn't think twice before discarding them from not just their jobs but this world."
