The City of Sin holds more than secrets. He doesn’t remember me. But, I remember him. The mysterious and brooding Jay McCall. His touch. His kiss. His hands on me. It’s burned into my mind. The one incredible night we shared. But, that was before... Before I lost my brother. Before grief held me hostage. He’s back, and it has nothing and everything to do with me. The secrets he’s keeping are tangled with my brother’s death. My heart. My body. At war over a man I barely know. A man who knows the truth. He wants me to trust him. I want to. But to survive in a place where demons hide, I must trust no one... not even myself.
Hidden Truths My life was easy, simple, fun. Light. Until I got wrapped up with the wrong people. Nothing but a piece of property to pay for the sins of my father. I’m to be married off to a handsome monster. I see his truths every day, and it’s hard not to fall for the enemy. He won’t let me escape, but I’m not sure I want to. I wanted to marry for love, but it looks like love is a lie. Stolen Lies My life was brutal, horrific, ruthless. Dark. Until a beautiful bride was dragged into my life. I took her as my prize and made her mine. Vengeance never tasted so sweet. I see her truths every day, and it’s hard not to fall for a woman who makes me weak. She can try to run, but I have no intention of ever letting her go. I wanted to marry for hate, but it looks like hate is a lie.
There are rules to being Abigail Crowne’s bodyguard, rules to watching the infamous billion-dollar heiress, otherwise known as the Reject Princess. Never forget your place, always put the Crowne name above all else, and never, ever hurt the Reject. Especially don’t torment the Reject. Even if she is a spoiled brat. So when an opportunity presents itself to punish her, you definitely shouldn’t take it. Then again, Abigail loves to be tortured, and I’ve waited patiently for revenge. I’ll keep her safe... with cruel protection. Love is off limits with Abigail Crowne, but no one said anything about hate.
KEANU Selena played me. Confirming I wasted years loving someone who didn’t love me back. It should be easy to move on, but since she dumped me, I can’t shake her from my thoughts, no matter how hard I try. Dates and random hookups don’t help, because no one measures up to the girl I still love with my whole heart. When she appears at my door, begging me for help, I can’t turn her away. My protective instincts kick in, and I grasp this second chance with both hands. This time, I’m determined to open her eyes. To help her realize she made a mistake throwing what we had away. To prove our love is the real deal. SELENA Keanu has it all wrong. I let him go because I love him too much to continue holding him back. And I’ve paid for it every day since. I didn’t think it was possible to miss someone this much, but my entire being aches for him in a way that isn’t healthy. It’s why I continue to keep my distance even though it’s killing me inside. No one understands me the way he does, so, when my ugly past returns, threatening to undo years of progress, he’s the first person I run to. If anyone can keep me safe, it’s the love of my life. Maybe, this time, I’m strong enough to be the woman he deserves. If my past doesn’t take me from him first.
I'm a sinner. A criminal. The beast that will never let her go... Everyone in England knows the name Casper Jameson. They know that I'm a cruel bastard with no regrets when it comes to dealing with those that cross me. They fear me; a man with no morals. Someone cold—without a weakness. Until I see her... She's beautiful; a delicious temptation standing across the room from me without a care. Unaware of the danger that lurks—that this man wants to consume her. I’m going to own her every sigh. Taste her every moan. Drown in her pleasure. Let the bloody chase begin.
