Learning To Fly Without Wings (#2 in Sins of...
Life has never been daisies and rainbows for 17 year old Mariah Belmont.
From the moment that she was conceived from an arranged marriage; she was said to be the bringer of the family, and was only a doll for them to use and discard.
She have never felt love in her entire life from them, and would have always been lonely, if not for her friend Betty company.
Her only wish was to escape the clutches of her small family and their wicked ways, but she was far too weak, vulnerable, and afraid of running away. It was as if she was locked up tight in a metal cage and chained to the wall; she felt trapped.
She finally found the courage to escape and succeeds by a mere chance, with a broken heart and fear about the darkness of the world, but one thing was for certain, her heart was free, until that chance rendered her into the arms of a famous and extremely rich Duke, who was not a gentleman, but a man of his principles.
She runs away from him in fear of his ill temper and beastly behavior, for he was not a man you could trifle with.
What will happen when Mariah's life changes drastically, when she meets him yet again and can no longer escape his clutches?
What will he do to her now that he have finally had her back in his arms? Will she lose her heart and freedom to him?
