This short story/novella can be read as a standalone. I originally wrote this short story for the Moments in Time Anthology and though it used to be on Wattpad, I had to make it private when the anthology was published. Unfortunately, I'm a noob and couldn't figure out how to make the story public, so I decided to redo it. Dark Paradise is now called "Esteban" and is in it's complete and fully-edited form. It even has a pretty hot cover by Hang Le. Please note: Esteban/Dark Paraside was written before Dirty Deeds and Dirty Promises and is set before then. It shows the "good" side of Esteban Mendoza...although if you've read The Dirty Angels Trilogy, you know the bad outweighs the good. And then some. If you want more of this world, please pick up the Dirty Angels Trilogy: Dirty Angels, Dirty Deeds and Dirty Promises. Also note: this is a very graphic book with one scene in particular that got it banned from Wattpad. If you object to anything related to violence or graphic sex, please DO NOT READ. This is your official warning.
