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.

Uninviting cousin

When the butler from the Nottingham mansion opened the door and saw Mallory standing there, his eyes widened in disbelief. He seemed at a loss for words, unable to comprehend her unexpected presence. Mallory said to Hadeon,

"See? I'm so famous, I leave them speechless. Who needs posters?"

Hadeon chuckled in response, enjoying her humour. "Oh, I do love it when you speak my language," he replied with a grin before turning his attention to the flustered butler. "Where's Dollet?" he demanded, prompting the butler to scurry off into the mansion, presumably to summon help.

"Master Hades, do you have trouble remembering names or do you just do it on purpose?" Mallory asked with a furrowed brow.

Hadeon shrugged indifferently. "I think it's simply because those people are of no use or interest to me," he explained casually, waving his hand dismissively before stepping inside the mansion uninvited. "Wow," he remarked, taking in the surroundings.
