A terrific addition to this outstanding series full of romance, intrigue and danger. The start of Rogue and its founders. Back to the beginning with Jason, Kelly, Matt and Erika. We’ve met their kids in the previous stories and it’s fantastic to see where it all began. Jason and Kelly’s backstory is emotional and heartbreaking and sets up to affect their children’s lives in devastating ways. There’s some romance in the mix with heart pounding passion and steam. I loved Matt from the beginning of this series and I still love him. Such a heroic hunk always fighting the good fight. Yum! And my girl, Erika. What a fierce gal with some heavy baggage. I can’t wait for more stories in this fabulous series. I want some more of those Midwest Boys and their fantastic girls. Please give me Silas’ story. Rogue ❤️!

I’m startled awake some time later when I hear a bump against the wall across from me. Laying in the dark, I wait and it happens over and over again. Curious, I get up and tiptoe out my door and over to the spare room.
“No,” I can hear being said over and over, the voice deep and afraid. I peek my head in and, sure enough, he’s tangled in his bed sheet, his leg hitting the wall while it looks like he’s fighting someone.
Carefully, I slowly walk over to the bed and lay my hand on his arm. “You’re safe,” I repeat over and over, until his frown eases and the wrinkle on his forehead is gone. I’m about to back away when his eyes fly open, pinning me with a stare.
“Sorry,” I blurt out. “I’m Kelly. I heard you and just wanted to check to see if you’re okay.”
His throat bobs a couple times before he nods his head, his eyes flicking to the clock that reads quarter after two. His hands come up and rub down his face. For the first time I notice he’s shirtless and wearing basketball shorts. His face is longer and his jaw is square, sharp, with a classical aristocratic look. His hair is light and short, cropped close on the sides and longer on top. It’s fashionable and not at all my type. “I’m Calvin,” he says, testing out his new name.
“Nice to meet you,” I respond and smile. “I’ll talk to you more in the morning, okay?”
He nods again in response. Our eyes hold and I faintly see the remaining ghosts that are haunting him. The orbs clear when he blinks again. “Night.”
