BURN IN YOUR BLOOD
BOOK TWO IN THE CALIFORNIA BLOOD SERIES
Sometimes, we lose ourselves in the devastation of love.
But sometimes, we find ourselves there, too.
Avery Capulet. The forbidden fruit. The apple of her Daddy’s eye. The newly-minted Queen of California’s criminal underworld. And now, the missing girl nobody can find.
I know where she is, though. Kneeling before me, tears spilling from her eyes as the last bit of her dignity bleeds from her. I don’t want the pound of flesh that the girl who betrayed me delivers, but I don’t have a choice.
Avery Capulet. Moaning underneath me, as pain merges with pleasure, skin to skin as we do what we can to survive. In the dark, in the wild, we’re like animals. I try not to love her. I try so damn hard.
But the war waged inside my heart was won a long time ago, by a girl who should have known better than to trust a man like me.
