CunjaWhen news reporter, Priscilla Hart suffers a near fatal attack by a mysterious creature, she finds herself at the mercy of the very detective she swindled for privileged information regarding a homicide story she’s covering.

Detective Logan Payne doesn’t trust her. His focus is to prove she’s fabricating the attack to get closer to her sources again. But as the case heats up, he’s torn between proving her a fraud and giving in to the smoldering desire he feels for the attractive reporter.

The predator’s trail leads to the unearthing of a peculiar medallion and an ancient Cajun spell known as Cunja. The more he discovers, the more he’s convinced she isn’t lying at all. But will it be too late to save the woman he loves from the clutches of a madman?
