Fiendish is a dark and twisted take on Beauty and The Beast.
So what would you do if your prince charming turned out to be the worst kind of monster?
Calida Alexander moves from Charlotte to Atlanta after a painful break up. She faced some harsh realities about herself during that breakup and desperately wants to change who she perceives herself to be. When she meets Seth, she is drawn in by his sexy good looks and is won over by his gentlemanly demeanor. On the surface, he's her dream come true.
Seth Jokobi is sexy and charming, the kind of man that women dream of being with. As a master manipulator, he uses his charm and good looks as a lure. His prey never suspect that lurking behind those piercing blue eyes and million dollar smile, lies a sadistic monster. When he meets Calida, her shy nature tempts him into playing a game where the stakes end up being higher than he could have imagined.
Can love really conquer all or is it sometimes just not enough?
Seth sat back against his seat and crossed his arms. The same frown he had when I pulled out my wallet once again made an appearance. “It’s nearly dark. I would prefer driving you home instead of leaving you at the public transit station.”
“Oh. I just didn’t want to inconvenience you.”
“I promise you, it’s not an inconvenience.”
Seth flashed me another one of those charming smiles that had me captivated most of the evening. Figuring I might as well enjoy the remaining time with him, I told him my address. His smile broadened when he got the information he was after, and I prayed we’d get stopped at every traffic light along the way. Seth turned on his car, and the engine roared to life.
“Whoa,” I said under my breath, but from the smirk Seth gave me, I assumed he heard it.
He quickly punched my address into his navigation system, and we were off. Unfortunately for me, the streets of Atlanta were not crowded for once, and we arrived at my house sooner than I’d hoped.
“Thank you. I had a great time,” I said when he killed the engine after pulling into my driveway.
“You’re welcome, and so did I.”
I turned to open the door, but Seth grabbed my hand stopping me. I shot him a look of confusion.
“I can’t let you do that,” he said, answering my unspoken question.
“I can’t get out of the car?”
“I can’t let you open your own door.”
I felt a smile spread across my face. The chivalrous nature of that statement made my stomach do a little flip. Seth got out of the car then strolled around to open the door for me.
He stood close to me again, and I found myself holding my breath, waiting to see what he would do this time. I was disappointed again when he backed away without making a move. I chastised myself again for my crazy thoughts. Maybe Macy was right, it had been too long for me if I wanted a near-stranger to kiss me.
“Well, um, goodnight Seth. And thank you again for linner,” I said with a smile then turned and headed towards my house.
“Yes,” I answered, turning to face him.
Seth stood with a lopsided smile on his face, leaning lazily against his car, looking like the epitome of tall, dark, and sexy.
“Are you going to give me your number, or am I supposed to just stake out your house so that I can see you again?”
It took all of the self-control I possessed to stop myself from squealing like a schoolgirl and jumping for joy. Still, I tried, but failed, to act cool about the fact he just asked for my number because I felt myself grinning like a Cheshire cat.
“I um, don’t have any paper,” I replied, patting myself down.
“That’s okay. Just give me your phone.”
I pulled it out of my pocket and quickly unlocked it before handing it to him. Seth punched in a number then I heard ringing coming from inside his car. Our fingers touched when he gave me back my phone, and we let them linger there for a moment.
“Until next time,” he said with a smile before climbing back into his car.
I stood there watching until his taillights faded away. I did a happy dance in my front yard, not caring if the neighbors thought I was crazy, before I ran into the house to tell Macy.
