Everyone has a past. It’s a fact of life, one that is unavoidable. But I left mine behind eight years ago when I joined Satan’s Legacy MC. I also left her behind. It was for the best because forbidden love doesn’t even begin to cover what was starting to develop between us. Walking away from my mother was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but walking away from her blackened my soul.
Unfortunately, time and distance doesn’t mean a damn thing when she shows back up, a demon taunting me with what I can’t have. Or can I? In eight years, circumstances change. What was once impossible becomes possible. And with her life in danger, I can’t stay away because I’m the only one who knows her enemy, the only one who can ensure she survives to live another day.
I fell in love the moment I first laid eyes on him. Unfortunately, that was when I was sixteen and at the wedding of my father to his mother. There was something about him that called out to me, that made me believe that life would be better with him in it. Then he left and life got infinitely worse.
Fast forward eight years, and I’m in the ICU, fighting for my life because my father became even more abusive after the divorce, blaming me for all the problems in his marriage. When the man I once loved but now despise shows up, I have no choice but to spill my guts to him. Because he’s the only person I have left in the world, like it or not. Will he do everything he promises and save me, give me a better life? Or will he walk away again, leaving me to pick up the pieces and likely die trying?
