Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.
Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can’t tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn’t the type to tolerate secrets.
Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl’s ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.
A dark twist on the genie folklore, SUMMONED follows a reluctant criminal as he unravels the mystery of the paranormal bond controlling him.

I shouldn't be snooping, but I have a stake in this: my life. It might not be much of one, but I would prefer if it didn't end with any unnecessary drawn out agony.
I'm kind of a coward that way.
But that is only part of my interest. I can't shake the thought that if I could get my life back to normal—with less wishes to fulfill—I could figure out how to keep Syd. I've never wanted something so much. Not enough to throw all my previous self-imposed rules out the window.
I can't keep this relationship with Syd while I'm hopping from one brutal crime to another, though. She isn't going to tolerate my antics forever. I need to find out how long this situation is going to last, and if I can hurry it along. Yet anyone who would know what's happening isn't going to tell me.
Except . . .
I halt in my step then lean back and peer down the hallway.
There is one option.
I stalk to Silvia's door and knock.
After a moment, the door opens.
Her eyes widen. “Dimitri? Daddy summoned you?”
“Yeah, he didn't want to wait to tee off.” I push past her and close the door. “What's going on with him?”
She lets down her dark hair and ties it back up. I'm sure it is for my benefit, but I don't see any difference.
“Going on with what? I don't play golf, Dim,” she says. “You know that.”
I roll my eyes. “We weren't really playing golf. I'm asking about the one and a half million dollar donation to the hospital.”
She groans and flops down on her bed. “Don't even get me started on that.”
I cross the room and sit in a chair opposite of her. “So you do know?”
“That he's an idiot?” She gestures toward the ceiling. “Why doesn't he just leave my money alone?”
“It's not yours yet,” I say, mostly to annoy her.
“It's my inheritance. Everything in this house is my inheritance.” Her eyes dart to me. “He needs to fall on a spike.”
“Calm down. You'll get your puppy soon enough, Cruella.” I lean forward, my hair falling into my eyes. “What was the transaction a cover for?”
She shrugs, then her gaze locks onto me. I smile a little. Her tan cheeks turn pink. Then she grabs a pillow off her bed and chucks it at me.
“Get out of my room, Dimitri.” She looks at the ceiling again.
I catch the pillow and hold it on my lap. “Just tell me what you know.”
“I don't know anything!” She growls. “I have no idea what's going on.”
“Well, you can find out.”
She scrambles to sit. “Yeah? How? Tell me, Oh, Wise Oracle.”
“Genie, not Oracle. Though if the position is open . . . ”
“Seriously, Dim.” She frowns, staring down at her blankets. “What do you expect me to do?”
“Ask the accountant.”
“He's not going to know.” Her eyes land on the manila envelope in my hand. “What is Daddy having you do this time?”
“Just some work in San Diego.”
“I want to go too.” She looks at me with pleading eyes.
“Not a chance.” I push to my feet. “It's awful just driving to Phoenix with you.”
She falls back onto her bed. “Get used to it. I plan to travel a lot.”
And here we go, subtly making wedding plans. Why isn't this weird for her? It is for me.
Then again, I'm not a Walker. I have morals. At least, when their lack of conscience isn't being forced onto me.
I cross the room to drop the pillow onto her head. “See what you can find out for me, okay?”
I turn for the door. She doesn't say anything, but the pillow hits me square in the back on my way out.
Life under Silvia is going to be that slow death I had hoped to avoid.
