Hartstrings
Jaded Regret #3
by
L.L. Collins





✾ Synopsis ✾


Tanner Hart, the All-American bad boy bass guitarist of Jaded Regret, has one motto — play women's bodies like he does the strings of his guitar — hard, in tune, and giving it his all until the show is over. The only strings he wants attached to him are the ones he plays on the stage.

He has quite the reputation, even with his own band, and he likes it that way. It keeps the truth of who he really is locked deep inside. But there's so much more to him than anyone really knows...

Now that he's successful, he can afford to find out what really happened to the only girl who's ever held his heart. The only thing is... will he really want to know the truth?

When Mackenzie 'Mac' Shepard finds herself in a situation she's been in too many times before, she expects to do what she's always done — cover it up, accept the apologies, and move on. She knows trying to get out is futile. What she doesn't expect is for the world famous Tanner Hart to burst into her life like a knight in sexy armor.

When their lives collide and hearts get involved, can Tanner keep his hartstrings from being tangled up in his past, or can he make a new kind of music... with his heart?

✿ Excerpt ✿


"You're safe." I put the key card in the door and pushed it open, allowing her to go ahead of me.

She dropped her purse on the table by the door and wrapped her arms around herself. It was then that I noticed her shaking again, her body trembling from head to toe.

"Mackenzie." I rubbed my hands on her arms as her cerulean pools of pain stared right through me. I felt her knees give way, and I knelt with her to the floor. Her hands covered her face, muffling her sobs. "You can do this."

She shook her head. "You don't understand. He'll never let me go, Tanner. Now he'll be after you. I-I'm sorry. You should let me go back to him. It'll be fine. He loves me, in his own way."

"You aren't going back there. You've let him hit you for the last time. He doesn't love you, not if he can hurt you like this. And he can try all he wants to come after me. You don't need to worry about that. Come on, let's get you cleaned up."

I lifted her off the floor, and she allowed me to guide her to the bathroom. I wrapped a towel around her shoulders and started the bathtub. I could feel her gaze on me, but she didn't say a word as I gathered some shampoo and soap from the shower. Something deep within me wanted to get every trace of blood off her body so that she could start fresh.

I tested the bath water and then turned to her. "Do you want to get in? I thought I'd help you get the bl—get clean."

She worked her lip between her teeth again. Her hands shook as she gripped the edges of the robe she still wore. Dark circles under her eyes highlighted her face, but I still found her breathtakingly beautiful.

"I can leave the room." I didn't want to, but not for the reason I'd normally want to be in a bathtub with a woman.

Mackenzie gripped my shirt so fast, I jumped. "Don't leave. Please." Her voice wavered with unshed tears, and I nodded.

"I'm right here."

For the innocent souls of the remote island paradise, including Kira, they are both intoxicating and will, using different methods, test her will to the limit.

After she reluctantly agrees to be Trevor’s guide, things become unraveled when she suspects he is distracting her from the renegade captain who has his own ulterior, "get rich", motives for being there. Her situation becomes desperate when no one will listen.

PROLOGUE

Countryside outside Athens, Ohio 1934

The rumble of thunder sent the horse into a nervous prance. The animal jerked its head and whinnied as James Fleming pulled in the reins to steady his mount. "Whoa there, big fella. It's just a few boomers, nothing to be concerned about." But when he raised his gaze to study the sudden ominous build of cloud formations, the certainty of a brewing storm made him decide it was time to get back to the barn. With a gentle tug, he turned the horse. "All right, Major, you win. Let's go home."

James had enjoyed these lone horseback outings through the hills and valleys of the countryside and took them as often as he could. However, this would be his last ride. He would miss America. Ohio in particular. He had learned a great deal the three years he spent there, working and studying. He even learned things he hadn't intended, like riding horses owned by his sponsors who graciously opened their home and provided him with a place to stay.

But the time had come to return home. The winds of war were building between his homeland of Great Britain and Germany, now ruled by the radical Nazis hell-bent on avenging their defeat in the Great War. His country needed him, and James, always a patriot, would contribute any way he could.

He again looked to the sky. The storm had moved in quicker than he expected. Dark angry clouds now directly overhead made it look as if night was descending. Gusty howls of wind and more rumbles of thunder gave sound to the suddenly eerie scene. His horse became more frantic by the moment, pressing the need to get out of the weather as soon as he could. Although unfamiliar with the shortcut through the valley and having been warned by the ranch hands that the territory contained dangerous marshland, he decided to take the chance.

Entering the valley, his heart beat faster. After little more than a hundred meters, the trail narrowed but he pressed on. Clouds linked together and the low whistle of wind made the hair on his neck stand on end. Thank God, it hadn't started raining... yet.

Then a sudden crack of thunder crashed over their heads. The horse bolted. Using what he'd been taught, James fought the reins and had his mount under control in a matter of seconds. He exhaled, then stopped to regain his bearings. The animal had only traveled another dozen meters, but his relief was short lived.

The ground beneath them began to quiver. When he tried to turn the horse, the earth sucked at the animal's hooves like quicksand. Again, his heart raced. He had to get out, but the horse, now in full panic, reared back and threw him. Falling backwards, he landed hard in the swampy marsh. As he lay stunned, he heard the horse struggle to gain its footing, and then gallop away to freedom.

The horse escaped, but James was not so fortunate. Sinking, he tried to scramble out but the marsh restricted his movement. The more he struggled, the faster he went down. When up to his waist, he stopped. This couldn't be happening. This was supposed to be his last day in America. He couldn't die like this. But the wet mud and the tangy smell of rotting vegetation made it all too real.

Nearly panic stricken, James turned his head and caught sight of a fallen branch sticking up out of the marsh like an outstretched hand. With trembling fingers, he reached out and grasped it. After he pulled himself closer, he slung an arm over and hung on. He tried to relax so he could catch his breath but each time he started to sink, he had to wiggle upward to keep his head above the marsh.

Soon, the wet mud and exhaustion began to take its toll. Though it looked hopeless, he began to shout. He shouted as long and as hard as he could.
