Scarlette Jones never really had it easy. I guess you could blame her father for that. She was desperate-desperate to find her mate and get away. So when she did find him, he was nothing she imagined. He was cold, arrogant, secretive, and heartless at times. Some days she could see a change and other days he is his usual self. Point is she's afraid-not just of him but what he's capable of. But what's done is done. They were mated, bonded, and it didn't matter if she wanted to or not. She had no choice. Luke Walker never expected to find her-or even cared to look. That was the least of his worries. She drives him crazy, not in just a good way but bad as well. She's everything good and he's the complete opposite. He's afraid his past demons will get her hurt or worse killed. But he's noticed that she has her own set of demons-demons he wished she'd tell him. So how will they come to terms with each other? How will Luke protect the one thing on his life that is good when all the bad is slowly creeping towards him.
