Summary

“He did more than break your heart, didn’t he?”

Emma Marshall is haunted by memories of a horrific attack she can’t bury deep enough. Most of all, Emma is haunted by fear — fear that she will never be free of her abusive ex’s control, fear she will never be able to trust another man again.

No one knows the unspeakable truth of what happened between Emma and her ex-fiancĂ© Beaux. It’s a secret Emma plans to carry to the grave, until Julian Cole, a music executive with a dark past of his own, moves in next door and opens Emma’s mind and heart to the possibility of love after a violent betrayal. As the reporter and music executive grow closer in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, Emma realizes she must face her past in order to heal and move forward with Julian. But Emma soon learns Beaux will do anything to keep his sins a secret.

Emma must risk everything to protect her newfound happiness and Julian from Beaux’s threats. Putting her investigative skills to good use, Emma embarks on a dangerous journey to gather evidence and bring Beaux to justice. But the deeper Emma gets into Beaux’s wicked world, the more complicated things become. How far will Beaux go to keep his secrets? How far will Emma go to protect the ones she loves? Find out in this women’s empowerment thriller about life and love after abuse.

Excerpt

I am entranced by Julian. Well, his music. It’s soft, tortured, and tangible. As he moves his bow back and forth across the strings of his instrument, triceps clenched, jaw sharp, the music moves around me. It caresses me and forms a warmth in my chest and a swelling of tense emotion in my cheeks. I want to cry, like really cry.

He doesn’t make eye contact with the audience. Instead, his eyes are closed, and he moves his head back and forth with the movements of his bow. The bodies on the dance floor beneath me mimic his movements. In an eloquent symphony, they dance.

The waiter comes and places my drink in front of me. I grab it and sip at it mindlessly without removing my eyes from Julian. He’s a musician, a true musician, the kind who moves people without a word.
