"It gives me strength to have somebody to fight for; I can never fight for myself, but, for others, I can kill." 
- Emilie Autumn 

I should never have jumped that fence, and I most definitely should never have kissed her. 

Living on the streets, I had to make some hard decisions to stay alive. I signed a contract with the devil, and because of that, I choose to live alone. 

But after listening to my neighbors fight every night for years, it's finally gotten to me. Now I've gone and done it - I've broken my only rule-never get involved. 

I want to save the beautiful woman next door with the sad eyes from his abuse. I want to take her away from all of this, but what do I have to offer when my hands are stained with the sins I've committed? 

How can I offer a broken woman peace and safety when those two things don't exist in my world? 


"It was dark and gritty and I just couldn't help but be addicted to each page, desperate to find out everything as quick as possible." - Louise, Seraphim Reviews 

"When it comes to real subjects that we all deal with every day I don't want it to be sugar coated - I want to be able to feel what the character is feeling and Henry does that without flaw...." - Michelle Slagan 

"A gripping, intense story that will take you on an emotional ride of self discovery and finding true happiness in the strangest of places." - Bel Burgess
