My Books

Lyric

I fell in love with him when we were kids.

He promised me forever when we were teenagers. 

Months later he leaves me without a care in the world.  

One week during senior year was all it took for Colt Street to decide I was no longer what he wanted. Then, just like his brother, Colt took off for the military, leaving the life we longed for, behind. 

Eight years later he’s back, and now everything has changed.  We’re both not who we once were… and I don’t know if we ever will be.   

Colt

Running into Lyric Taylor again brought back the reality of the situation I put us in all those years ago. 

I left when my world came crashing down. Instead of letting her know what was going on, I chose to run, and leave her behind. 

This time I won’t make the same mistake. 

She’s guarded. 

I’m broken. 

Now danger is waiting to tear us apart, and I’m ready to put my life on the line.

Whether she accepts it or not, I will always be her warrior. 

Trent

I fell in love with the wrong girl—you could say. 

She destroyed my career.

Set me up for her family’s crimes.

Then ran off into the sunset to become Queen of a criminal empire. 

Time is supposed to heal all things. For me, time has done nothing but create a vengeful monster out for blood. Her blood. I won’t stop until she’s back on my turf, playing my game and surrendering her body and soul to me. 

I’d say my plan would be to destroy her heart like she did mine, except I learned long ago that Scarlet Reyes doesn’t have one. 

There is no happily ever after here. 

Scarlet

I ruined my chance at happiness—you could say. 

I became a Queen to survive.

He doesn’t know I walked away to save his life.

My plan to make my father’s enemy fall in love with me worked, until I lost my own heart in the process. 

Until he showed me the cage I had allowed myself to be trapped in. 

When a relationship is already built on lies like ours, hearts and love don’t stand a chance. 

I have a secret I’m keeping from Trent Nichols.

Now I’m back and once again my lies are standing in the way.

How can we live happily ever after when he’s determined to ruin me?

What started as a shelter for the weak, the defenseless, the brave, the survivors, soon became a family’s legacy. 

Their protection became a town’s mission.
