The Blackthorn Series
My father is dead.
And I’m about to make a deal with the devil to keep my family safe and get the revenge my father deserves.
Wren’s the only woman I’ve ever loved, but that doesn’t mean we’re right for each other. Don’t get me wrong… the sex was always crazy hot. That’s never been the problem. But Wren and me? We’re explosive together, all sorts of wrong for each other—and sooner or later, someone’s going to get burned.
I walked away from Wren once, and broke her heart. She’s never going to forgive me or trust me again—but her mob boss father doesn't care. He's forcing me to marry her, and if I want to find out who’s threatening my family, this is my only option. As for Wren—she’s going to be pissed when she sees me, let alone when she finds out we’re getting hitched. Ask me if I care.
The deal is done. One way or another, I'm making her my wife.
More books in the series coming soon
I’ve tried damn hard to forget Skylar, but I can’t break the hold she has on me, even if she now belongs to another—even if she hates me, and refuses to see that she’s getting in deep with the sort of trouble any sane person would stay clear of. And I may deserve her wrath, but there’s no way I’m letting her stay with her evil bastard of a boyfriend.
I'll do whatever it takes to make her see reason, to keep her safe--to prove that we're meant to be together. She can come willing, or over my shoulder. It makes no different to me.
Because I’d lay down my life to save her—and it may just come to that.
My life for hers.
When the devil rides in on the wings of revenge.
Naked, bloody and on the run, I can’t even remember my name. I’m a stranger… yet Locke Blackthorn has taken me into his home and is doing all he can to put me back together again. He’s become my savior in a world where I have no one.
But it’s all a lie.
Because I know damn well who the Blackthorns are—and they have my family’s blood on their hands.
I’m here to exact my revenge. Except that I never anticipated that the devil I hate would steal yet one more thing from me—my heart.
Trying to avoid a war between my family and one of the most notorious criminals in Seattle, I'm forced to take a job I have no interest in doing. All I have to do is hack into one of the most protected systems in the whole country, and walk away with the goods.
In the middle of this asinine scheme, the last person I expect to run into is Avery--my biggest regret, and the only woman I've ever loved. But this time, she's on the right side of the law, and the moment she spots me, she knows I'm up to no good.
She wants to bargain--or throw my ass in jail.
I want her naked in my bed, screaming out my name.
And they may call me Scorch for a reason, but this time around, I'll be the one who'll get burned when I put my heart on the line.
I don't know who thought it was a good idea to put me in charge of protecting an heiress and her gorgeous twenty-something year-old daughter. Yet here I am, doing my best to keep them alive and out of a hitman’s cross hairs. Unfortunately, the heiress refuses to listen to a damn word I say and treats her daughter, Adalyn, like shit.
While I hate to lose a client, it doesn't break my heart when the heiress ignores my instructions and does something stupid to get herself killed. And when Adalyn begs me to keep her alive, there’s no way I can turn her down. Not when I haven’t been able to shake her from my thoughts from the moment I laid eyes on her.
In typical Blackthorn fashion, I’m falling for her fast and hard. But there’s still a killer on the loose, and now it’s not just her life that’s at stake, but my heart, and there’s a damn good chance I’m going to lose them both.
