✾ Synopsis ✾


All around us was darkness and night...

I'm not a hero. I'm a survivor.
I had one way out, and I took it.
Now all I want is peace,
A place to pick up the pieces and start over.

But she wants justice.
Names on a list, faces in the crowd.
I vowed to help her, but it's taking us back to the demons.
Until he appeared.

I thought he died in the fight.
I was wrong.
He's here.
Stronger, more powerful... Sexier.

And dangerous.

The boy I loved is now the one man we have to fear most.
When he tried to save me, he had no power.
Now everything has changed, and he'll never stop until I'm his.

✿ Excerpt ✿


~ Lara ~

We stop walking and turn to face the emerald waters. The briny air pushes her hair back and around her shoulders. Tendrils spin around my face, and the inescapable sorrow filters through my chest.

"I can't do this anymore."

"Yes, you can." Her voice is flat, and she bends to put Pierre on the dry sand. "I'm going up. How much longer will you be out here? Celeste is making Quiche Lorraine for breakfast."

Another sigh. "I'll be up in a bit. I'm finishing my exercise."

"Don't stay out too long or I'll eat all the food! Come, Pierre!"

I watch her run up the tall staircase, her little dog at her heels, thinking of the reasons she has to run. I remember her as a small girl on the street, in the dark alley behind the theater. She was thin and starving and hunched in the corner waiting to die.

She was so malnourished, I thought she was younger than her actual age, which was twelve. I remember carrying her inside and fighting with Rosa. I remember Rosa boxing my ears and telling me the first time that kid cried, she'd throw us both in the alley with the rats. I remember the terror I felt that night and Molly falling asleep so quietly with her head on my chest.

She needed me. She loved me, and I loved her fiercely in return.

I remember her running around the theater, a sweet and innocent kid never suspecting the hawk was circling above, watching her, closing in to steal her soul and warp her future. I'll never forgive myself for what happened to her. I'll never forgive myself for not being there to protect her.

A flash of pain moves through my stomach, and I remember someone saying the same words to me not so long ago...

Walking to the edge of the water, I look out at the surf, at the waves rushing in and out. I think about how nothing bad can happen here. The sins of the past are far, far away from this beautiful place.

Only it's a lie.

The sins of the past are never far away.

We carry them with us in our hearts wherever we go.

No matter how far we run, we can never outrun ourselves.

Tears are in my eyes, and I blink them away. My emotions are so close to the surface these days. I squat and wrap my arms around my knees, holding my insides together and wishing...

My wishes never come true.

"Lara!" A strong male voice cuts through the breeze.

For a moment I don't believe it. It's a wish caught on the wind and carried away out to sea.

"Lara!" It's louder this time, closer.

Nervous anticipation floods my chest. I stand and look up and over my shoulder. The staircase where Molly descended is empty. The one ahead of it is empty as well.

Was it a dream?

Another shout, and I realize it's coming from behind me. Turning, I see a tall figure jogging down the steps. He's alone, and he's moving fast. I look around, and no one is here. I have nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

My heart alternates between beating out of my chest and dying. I'm back on that train, seeing him for the first time out of the blue, completely caught off-guard, alternately panicking and rejoicing... He's alive!

He's wearing faded jeans and a plain white t-shirt. His caramel hair is a little longer, but not much. It moves in the breeze as he approaches me.

He's strong and pure and gorgeous as ever, and the way we touched, our glorious reunion is stronger and hotter in my memory than the sun climbing higher in the sky.

I want to cry. I want to sing. I want to hold him...

But now everything has changed.

✿ Excerpt ✿


I watched him stride across the café toward the door, hating the way everything tightened when he did.

His or mine, I wasn't sure.

But it was there.

Heavy.

Pressing on my heart.

I couldn't stop from watching him through the big windows as he started down the sidewalk, the man a scorching silhouette in the blaze of the day.

But he didn't climb into his car that was parked at the curb.

He began to pace.

A pace that looked like indecision and turmoil.

Back and forth right on the other side of the window.

His head tilted back toward the sky, as if it might hold an answer, before he set his coffee and the lollipops down on one of the open tables, dug in his pocket, and pulled out his phone.

"You're an idiot," Jenna hissed from beside me. "That guy likes you, and he's literally the hottest thing to ever walk through that door. And he bought All. The. Lollipops."

Maybe that was part of the problem.

"I don't get simple," was my response.

"What if he doesn't want simple?"

I would have answered her, told her that in the end, everyone did. They always took the easy way out when the going got tough. Except the café phone rang. I moved for it, thankful for the distraction, something to keep my feet from rounding the counter and running after him.

Because what the hell would that accomplish?

I lifted the receiver from the wall and pressed it to my ear. "A Drop of Hope. How can I help you?"

"Go out with me." His gravelly voice echoed through the line.

A surprised sound whispered from my lips, and Kale was suddenly at the window, his face pressed to the glass, hand shading his eyes so he could see inside. His other hand was holding his cell to his ear. "Go out with me, Hope. Just dinner. Because I can't fucking stop thinking about you. Couldn't after I saw you the first time at Olive's on Friday night. It only got worse after I saw you here Monday morning. I don't know what it is about you... but there's something that makes me want to figure it out."

My breaths were hard pants, my heart a jackhammer in my chest. "My life's complicated, Kale."

"And I'm offering you a night away from it. Don't you at least deserve that?"

I wanted to beg him, what then? What happened if I fell for that smirk and that smile and those tender eyes?

Fast and hard?

I could already feel myself slipping. My heart tipping his direction.

What happened if Dane found out?

What then?

But I was so tired of that man controlling every aspect of my life, even after I'd made the decision to cut him from it.

Jenna was suddenly in my face, gripping my wrist, her voice a hard, demanding whisper. "You tell him yes, Harley Hope. Don't you dare hang up that phone without telling him yes. You deserve something just for you. Just for you."

Indecision swarmed, questions and worries and want.

But it was the feeling balled in my stomach that trembled the floor beneath my feet.

The urge to reach out and touch on the beauty and tenderness that swam in his eyes. To discover if it was real.

The throb of desire that begged, a whisper in my ear that goaded — just one touch.

The hidden need to feel those hands skating my flesh.

I guessed I'd thought I'd never crave that again, my life fulfilled, my spirit content in knowing I was living for what was right.

Jenna squeezed tighter, my bossy best friend mouthing the word as she angled her head with the demand. "Say yes."

It was at the same second Kale fisted his hand against the window, his forehead rocking against it, his own words a petition. "Come on, Hope. Say yes. I promise you, you won't regret it."

A hint of playfulness came out on the last, but it didn't matter, because I was agreeing.

"Yes," I murmured, wanting to feel something good even though I wasn't so much a fool that I didn't know I was making a mistake. That in the end, it wouldn't hurt.

Because it already felt as if this mattered.

As if he mattered.

"Okay. One night. Just dinner," I reiterated.

He breathed out in what sounded like relief. "Just dinner."

As if anything could ever be as simple as that.
