She ran from a life of fear…
Adara's life has been filled with dread and apprehension, never knowing if she'd live to see the sunrise, or if she even wanted to. From an early age, she's served others—traded, sold, or given away. Only one fleeting moment in her life did she know kindness, but that too was taken away.
Now that she's escaped to her uncle's land, she finally has peace and feels safe. That is until he rode in. Now that peace is in danger—along with her heart.
He searched for salvation...
Warrick is called the Demon Lord for good reason. He is ruthless and cares for nothing—or no one—which makes him the perfect man to carry out the King's unsavory and sometimes brutal tasks. His current mission is no different, except when he arrives at MacCara keep, he finds Adara, the one woman he thought he'd never see again. She makes him feel, something he is afraid to do. He can't afford to be soft, and Adara could quickly become his weakness—one his enemies will use against him. Someone wants Adara dead.
Can Warrick convince her to trust him and keep her safe? Or will their new-found love become a deadly trap for both of them?
