A dirty, dark, & dangerous standalone romance.


Property. That's all I was. A pawn to be used at my husband's discretion. His twisted games turned my love into pain as he relished in my suffering. 

So I ran. 

A new name, a new look, a new life. Quiet and safe, far away from my tortured past. When Hank Lawless saunters into town, he kicks up more than sawdust and dirt. He ignites a flame of desire inside me I can't ignore. I offer my body, but he wants my heart -- a dangerous risk I just can't take. 

As he unravels my soul, my secrets soon follow, and I fear the devil will find me. I need to run again because, despite my feelings for Hank, my past is coming. 

And this time, he'll destroy us all. 

There are so many emotions that tumble through you while following Hank and Hope’s journey I can’t even begin to explain it. There was so much passion, love, and anguish in this story I couldn’t put it down.
