Nikki Ashton & Victoria Johns
Kade Sutton - The streets are a lonely, dangerous place to live, but this is my penance, the path I was meant to take. Out here, a smile from a stranger is the simplest gift that means everything.
I knew what it meant.
It gave me warmth and hope as I sat on the sidewalk each day begging for food.
Daisy Ingles was the woman who gave me that gift, she was kind, beautiful and smart, but best of all, she loved my dog.
People like me never expect to be given the opportunity of a lifetime, one that could turn it all around, but there’s a catch, I have to betray the woman I’ve grown to care about.
Daisy Ingles - Reality TV is a duplicitous cesspit, run by vultures waiting to rake through the bones of their victims, and I’m right in the middle of it. The only light in my day is the homeless guy, Kade who lives outside my office building.
He has a story, everyone does, but his haunts him, I can see those ghosts swimming in the bright blue of his eyes.
I never expected him to say yes to being the star of our show, but his one demand, that I go with him.
Everything tells me to say no, but I know he needs me. If I refuse, and he stays on the streets, it’ll be my fault.
Secrets, lies, love and betrayal, the perfect plot for a reality TV show, where even the best script writers couldn’t predict the fallout.
Codename: Agent Poppy
Mission: Infiltrate the enemy to gain information
Purpose: To aid military operations
Poppy never thought of herself as a casualty of war. She was serving her country. She was proud to do so. The problem was they never intended for her to come home.
Escaping death at the hands of both her captors and her country, Poppy has been given a chance at freedom. The man who gave it to her - the one sent to kill her. The condition; that she never contacts him and can’t return to her homeland, the country she served.
Embracing her second chance, Poppy makes a new life, living remotely in the Scottish Highlands with nothing but an adopted dog for companionship. It’s simple and free, and she has no expectations, least of all to fall for the mysterious motorcycle rider who becomes her neighbor.
He’s the one who helps her to trust again. He’s the one who can bring her back to life. He’s the man who makes her heart beat faster.
But, what if Poppy isn’t the only one looking for a second-chance? What if she’s not the only one hiding a terrible truth? What if even together they can’t dig deep enough to forgive the sins of their past?
I am Zane Teague, feared by men and desired by women, and I was born into a life of luxury, riches, and crime. Destined to take my place at the head of the family, and to be the ruler of our world.
Finally, I was crowned King, with the criminal world at my feet,
I take what I want, when I want it.
My name is revered, but there is one thing that I desire - have to have - but will never attain, no matter how hard or dirty I fight.
Bailey Roach is the woman I crave, the woman who should be in my bed. She's the queen I want to rule beside me, and I've loved her for most of my life. But she's also my best friend's sister and I swore to him that I would never touch her, never let the evil and chaos in my world taint hers.
Despite the promise I made, she is all I can think about, and the pain of wanting what I can't have is now my greatest weakness. Her hold on me has the potential to turn my world upside down and destroy everything I've worked for. Worse than that, she has the power to rip my heart and soul apart... yet, I have to have her.
When need engulfs you, it can only lead to disruption.
