A Rose Among Thorns
Mirabella Roston is just your average college senior. She survives on coffee, caffeine and chocolate. And she has always been unlucky in love. She figures her time has not come yet. With all her studies, she is more than happy to wait until the right time. That is until a tall, handsome stranger comes to their sleepy little college town and turns her world upside down.
Sawyer Lachlan is a hunter. He has been a hunter his entire life, born into a family of hunters. It is the only life he knows or even wants to know. He is solitary, resourceful and deadly. And he wants to keep it that way. When he is appointed to protect a young woman who has no idea his kind, or even her kind, exists, things start changing for him. And not in a good way.
Fairytales are not just your typical bedtime stories. They are legends. They are historic accounts. They are true. Descendants from fairytale creatures, heroes, and villains still roam our world. It is up to him to keep her safe and she is his one weakness.
