My life has been destroyed by two men. One, my hero. The other, my worst nightmare.
I taste the bitterness of betrayal every day as my body bleeds, suffering the touch of my enemy. It’s a fate chosen for me by others and it’s not something I can escape. At least, not yet.
I’m determined to survive, my need for vengeance feeding me. I’ll play this game until every piece is in place so I can break them all.
My plan includes Rylan Wolfe, the FBI agent eager to strike a deal. I give him the information he needs to take down a criminal threat, and he gives me the satisfaction of bringing my enemies to their knees.
But my hunger for justice won’t be sated until they’ve burned to ash. And for my plan to succeed I have no choice but to deceive Rylan—the one man who manages to thaw the ice in my veins.
In the end I’ll have to decide whether the revenge I’ve dreamt of for so long is worth losing the man who might be able to free my heart.
I had to leave. I had no choice. I loved her too much to stay.
Carys has always owned my heart and loving her was the best part of my life…until I discovered the truth, realizing that the only way to keep her safe was to let her go.
I thought it would become easier, that my love for her would eventually fade. But I was wrong. The longer I stayed away, the more it hurt to be apart from her.
It’s probably selfish and reckless, but I want her back. I need her more than I need air to breathe. Without her I’m nothing but a broken soul.
Problem is she’s already moved on, started a new life without me. But I’ve never shied away from a challenge, and there’s nothing I won’t do to prove to her that she’s still mine.
She’s always been mine.
I'm used to living a lonely, isolated life. I'm nothing more than a dirty little secret, and a pawn used in a twisted game of power.
My half-brother is saddled with the burden of taking care of me, making sure I don't land in the hands of our enemies. While he's away on his honeymoon he hires a bodyguard to take care of me.
Davis Cooper, AKA the hot as hell ex-FBI agent.
My attraction to him is instant, but his cold disregard for me is annoyingly obvious. It triggers the rebel in me, and fuels me into doing things a girl like me should never do.
Childish? Maybe. But behind the stone-cold façade Davis wears so well I can see there's a warm-blooded man waiting to devour me. He just needs a little nudge in the right direction—my direction.
Unfortunately, I manage to land myself in a heap of trouble. Now, what started out as little game of push and pull between us, changes into a bloody game of survival.
My past is my nightmare. It’s something I can’t escape, the memories haunting me whenever I close my eyes.
I have a dark secret digging its claws deeper into my soul each day. It’s the reason I isolate myself, never allowing anyone to get too close. Except Max. Forever my good friend.
He has secrets too. I can see them in his eyes, the darkness of unspoken mysteries that mirrors my own.
So many years looking over my shoulder, waiting for my past to catch me. All was quiet and foolishly, I started to hope I might be safe. But I was wrong. Dead wrong.
Somehow, my past coerces its way back into my life, and Max is the only person I can trust. Turns out his freedom is just as much at risk as mine.
What started out as friendship turns into something more as we join forces against those determined to destroy us. Together, we’re fighting for our lives and risking it all to win the war.
I learned the hard way that there are no happy endings in life. I lost everyone I cared for, and now I’m nothing but a hardened man.
My job is the only thing that helps me forget the emptiness, it’s constantly on the verge of swallowing me whole.
Then unexpected news sends me in a tailspin. At the same time, my past walks back into my life with clicking heels and a feisty attitude. Mia St. John is the girl I spent one mind-blowing night with in college. Only for her to vanish the next day without a word.
And now she’s the accused in my current assignment.
She claims she’s innocent, yet I sense there is more. I want answers, and it’s got nothing to do with the job. But the more I push, the more I realize what I really want is another shot. Another chance at making her mine.
There’s just one problem. She’s hiding something. I can see it in her eyes, an inferno of secrets…and it’s threatening to burn us both to ash.
