Of Love & War
Cara Vale had grown up a fighter-not by choice, but for her life. Many years prior to her birth, severe riots and violent protests led to the fall of the government, creating an era coined "The Uprising." Gangs formed, and those not a part of gangs, like Cara and her family, kept to themselves in protective hiding. Growing up in what was once Los Angeles without a mother and in the heart of the worst gang wars in history, her father taught her how to fight and survive. After a careless mistake leads to her capture, Cara gets sent on a wild adventure with prostitution, fist fights, plans of a final war, and love. With the world seemingly turning into a dark, hopeless void, does Cara have the power to stop the violence and piece together a new Earth, one founded on love-starting with hers?
Kale Verona was the leader of the most powerful gang of The Uprising, Libertas. After taking over the position upon the passing of his father, all he'd ever known was violence. That is, until Cara Vale stumbled into his life. World flipped upside down, does Kale have the courage to love, and cast aside the hatred and violence that Libertas-and all of The Uprising-had ever stood for?
