Brooke has been running all her life from the ghost of the people killed because of her. From a dreadful past, and from a monster with undeniable connections to her. Half a decade later, she is settled in a little town tucked in the corner of the world, keeping to herself and others at bay, and revealing nothing. Not that the townsfolk counted her as one of them either. People whispered about her, gossiped about the social pariah living alone. But, she was at peace with a dozen weapons, the nonchalance, the woods around her cottage and solitude. And of course, thinking about sweet and caring James Logan. Serial murders were buried deep in her chest, as she relived them each day, her mind reeking of guilt.
Until the bestselling author Richard Halden reaches Applecross in search of his own answers - the weight of his secrets threatening to destroy his sanity and Brooke’s world. But he isn’t prepared for what he finds in the little town. Not the little spitfire who brought out the worst in him. His arrival stirs in her forgotten memories of screams and blood, emotions that she has shielded herself from all through her adult life, and she fears he will shatter through her carefully built walls with his uninhibited charm. But, he is also the harbinger of the past that she once escaped from. A forbidden passion blossoms, but their secrets might just destroy what they hold dear as Brooke runs out of time, with the clutches of her dark past closing in on her.
