The line between savior and villain draws extraordinarily thin.
Three years after her parents' unsolved murders, Gabriella Latham faces the most critical decision of her life—choosing between two exceptionally different men. Who can she unequivocally trust? Who does she ultimately love?
Adrian Morningstar was once a dream come true. No one had ever loved her more, and for the first time, in longer than she could remember, she was no longer alone. He was the Prince Charming to her Cinderella until suddenly he became the Beast with whom she desperately wished to escape.
He changed everything.
When undercover agent Rafe Matthews infiltrated Morningstar's life, he hadn't planned on infiltrating Gabriella's heart. Nothing could get in the way of exposing Adrian's treachery. Except just as he was about to enact his plan, it derailed faster than a runaway freight train by falling for the boss's woman.
She changed everything.
Now her future hangs in the balance. One man seeks her submission; the other craves her salvation. Both vow to love her with an all-consuming passion. And Gabriella continues to discover nothing is quite as it seems.
As time threatens to run out, Gabriella and Rafe embark on a race to uncover Adrian and her parents' truth. When all is revealed, will it finally set them free or burn everything to the ground?
Secrets revealed. Truth uncovered. Lives and hearts betrayed.
In the stunning conclusion of Gabriella's quest to expose the killer, who will pay the ultimate price? And who will be left to rise from the ashes?
“I may have lied about many things, but this remains true: I love you, Gabriella. I will do so until my dying day.”
“Adrian,” I whisper. A finger to my lips stops my protest.
“I will win you back. No matter what I have to do.”
The feral look in his eyes tells me the truth.
It isn’t hyperbole. It’s promise.
As I’m about to get into the car, I pause, my hand perched on the top of the door. “Adrian?” I call.
His temperament performs a swift one-eighty. It almost hurts to see the hopeful expression in his eyes. He honestly believes he still has a chance, but I know, to my core, no matter what answers he has for me, my heart is no longer his.
He takes one step closer, stretches a hand out, hesitates, and then pulls it back to his side. “What is it?”
“Is it true? Were you trying to kill me that night?”
I have no idea why I’m asking such a question. Call it morbid curiosity, but deep down in my soul, I need to know the truth.
His eyes flash with grief, and then dark waves of anger mask the emotion. I’m about to escape when he sighs, and the ire has been replaced with regret.
“No, Gabriella. I was trying to save you.”
