I wanted to stay but left to keep her safe, only to return with a world of danger.
I’m a wanderer with no roots and no future.
She’s a nurturer with dreams of a home filled with family.
We never stood a chance.
Or at least that’s what I tell myself.
I left her.
No text or call.
It had to be like that—the only way to keep her safe.
Until danger drags me back into town and my worst fear comes true.
Willow’s life is in the hands of a ruthless bully.
While we race to uncover my family’s deadly secrets and end the threat, her distrust eats at me.
I can’t blame her.
I lied to her, broke her trust, maybe even her heart, though I did it for the right reasons. Determined to do everything in my power to protect her, I’m forced to face a bitter truth.
I don’t deserve her and she may never forgive me, but I can’t walk away.
A small-town bad boy hiding a secret. A city girl with a brave goal. The pact that will ruin them both.
After a disastrous breakup, I decide this summer will be different. I’ll be that daring girl that has a summer fling without a care in the world. I’ll find a cute, outdoorsy guy who can show me what I’ve been missing. And when summer ends, I’ll blow him a kiss and walk into my big, bright future with my heart intact.
Enter dirty-talking raft guide Caleb Morgan, a perfect match for my wild streak. But one (incredible) night becomes two, then four…and pretty soon I’m falling. Hard.
Can I save myself before it’s too late?

After two years sidelined from the Renegades, Duke Reid wants nothing more than the excitement of his stunt work— well, except for Caitlyn Winters.

Unfortunately, he leaves the next day for a job in British Colombia. When the sheltered beauty shows up on his movie set, managing damage control for the biggest prick in Hollywood, Duke sees disaster on the horizon. If anyone gets hurt on his watch, he risks losing his certification, ending his career as a stunt man, the only job he knows and loves. A job that’s also funding his sister’s legal battle against an abusive ex for custody of Duke’s nieces. He can’t afford to screw up. Caitlyn is in way over her head, and her naivety could cost Duke everything.

There’s no going back for Caitlyn. She burned all her bridges on the way out of her small Kentucky town for her dream job in LA, where her cousin Lexi lives a fairy tale life. But Caitlyn’s dream job turns into a nightmare on day one. She didn’t sign up to be a celebrity fixer, but her savings and pride says she can’t quit. She’s thrilled to find Duke on the same movie set, until he tells her she’s not qualified to handle this job, making him just one more person who underestimates her. Tempers flare, as do serious sparks, but if her best isn’t good enough, hers won’t be the only job she tanks…

What should have been days under the same roof somehow turned into years.
She was only ever supposed to be a small distraction, but the years passed and stole the young girl with the grateful smile leaving him with something worse. Someone soft and tempting.

He knew. And it made the fight inside of him that much harder.
She was someone he should not want. Should not touch.
His little Misha did not deserve a hardened criminal. But he would be damned before he let another man have her.

The puppet masters.
Surviving the deadly sting of the scorpion binds us to this society.
Tethering the corrupt.
When the power shifts within, women become expendable. Pawns.
Currency for men to buy power, loyalty, and silence.
For women, the cold stone walls shrunk inward, thicker, taller, domineering.
They remain a suffocating force.
A pair of rough, thick fingers curling around our necks.
Squeezing until the pride we carry shrivels up and crashes to the floor at our feet.
Until all that remains is the last futile burst of energy born of instinct to fight for our lives.
The Scorpio Society owns us.
Every moment that ticks by with my pretty little eyes wide open only confirms one truth.
I will never accept being owned.
