I thought I was done.
I couldn’t take my eyes off her as the bullet tore through me, leaving me with nothing but the hope that I had done enough to save her. The darkness tried to engulf me—to brand me as its own and drag me to my fate.
Waking to see her tear-stained face above me was enough to make my heart stutter. I was alive and free from that place—but not from the toll it had taken on my mind and body. My story should have ended, but one woman kept standing in the way of that.
The only way I could have her was to find a way to put the darkness to rest.
Warning: This isn't your rainbows and love sonnets kind of romance. This story explores topics of abduction and slavery, and contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex.
Release Date: November 18, 2014

And just for you, here's an excerpt:
#1 P.S. I'm crushing on Current/Elliot! I want a pair of their jeans and maybe a little more.
#2 OMG! I think Adia Kibur has found a new fan in me. Those accessories are to die for and a must have.
#3 I really need to invest in a pair of red pumps likes these Jeffrey Campbell Fuego Suede Pumps.
#4 I really really want this plaid shirt from Joe Fresh. Blame it on the Flawless video.
#5 Am I the only a little curious about Karl Daily launching September 20? Check out Karl Lagerfeld's IG for more information.
#6 I'm too excited about brunch with my bookworms on Sunday. We're doing a Sex and the City theme. Translation = everyone is dressing up.
#7 Bang! Bang! So excited about the On The Run Tour premiering on HBO Saturday night. 2.5 hours of Jay Z and Beyonce. Heaven!!!!!!
