Eleven years later, Heathan is back for his girl. Back from a place from which he thought there was no return. Back to seek revenge on those who wronged them.
Time has made Heathan’s soul darker, polluted with hatred and the thirst for blood.
Time has made Ellis a shell of her former self, a little girl lost in the vastness of her pain.
As Heathan pulls Ellis out of her mental prison, reviving the essence of who she once was, down the rabbit hole they will go.
With malice in their hearts and vengeance in their veins, they will seek out the ones who hurt and destroyed them.
One at a time.

Perfect Strangers by Madison Street is LIVE!
Part of Fiona Davenport’s Passion, Vows & Babies Kindle World, this is one sexy read you don’t want to miss!
Six years ago, I met a mystery.
Smooth, sexy, and confident, his arms wrapped around me on that cold winter night. A deep, rugged voice embedded itself in my soul. Dark eyes stared deep into mine, begging me to stay.
Six years ago, I ran and didn’t look back.
The memory gives me chills to this day. And as I close my eyes, I imagine him whispering sweet nothings to me. That perfect night together, just one night, is our secret; an unspoken memory two strangers share.
Now, my mystery becomes a reality. One that faces me, head on, and stares with those same dark eyes, speaking with that same deep voice. A mystery I cannot escape, one the shadows won’t let me hide from anymore.
Once he finds out my secret, it will shatter his heart.
He should have stayed away.
I gasp with astonishment as the rooftop is completely decked out with lights all around. A trail of lights twinkle across the sky towering from one end to the other. Even though it’s chilly out, I don’t feel cold by the slightest. Major guides me to the center of the roof as I see another silver dome.
“Major, this is gorgeous. Did you do all this?”
He shrugs nonchalantly. “Ehh, no big deal. Piece of cake.”
“I didn’t know your restaurant had a rooftop.”
“We don’t. this is actually the roof of next door. Our spaces share a connected stairwell and my neighbors let me come up here tonight. I don’t do this stuff on the regular.”
He guides me to a lounge sofa as we sit side by side. He uncovers the dome, displaying a decorated plate of strawberry cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake.
He smiles, “See…piece of cake.”
I laugh at his small joke. “Ha-ha, that was kind of corny.”
He smirks, “Yeah, you’re right. That was lame.”
Major passes me a fork allowing me to slice into my cakes and bite into the delectable deliciousness. The smooth creamy cheesecake fills my mouth and I moan as I savor every inch. Major slices into his chocolate mousse and licks his lips. I catch myself staring as he licks his fork. Hot damn, this man is freakin hot.
Major peeks at me and I look away, hoping he didn’t catch me staring, so I stuff my face with cheesecake. My cheeks fill with the pastry filling and I can only imagine I must look like a chipmunk right about now.
From the corner of my eye, I notice Major holding in his laughter as I swallow the huge piece of cake. I slap his shoulder just as he bursts into laughter. “Not funny!”
Major calms down. “What, you looked hilarious with all that food in your mouth. Are you storing for the winter?”
Before even thinking it through, I find myself shoving a piece of cheesecake in his face, and smearing it all over. Major immediately stops laughing as I cover his face with cake. I stare at him for a brief moment before chuckling under my breath.
He huffs and licks a piece of cake from the corner of his mouth. He sucks his lips, tasting the cake. “Hmm, needs a hint of sugar.”
I explode into laughter at his reaction and before I know it, he hits me with chocolate mousse. My eyes shoot open in complete shock as I see him roll back into his chair, holding his stomach as he roars with amusement.
As my vengeance grows more and more, I grab another piece of cheesecake, and aim, right before Major grabs hold of my hand. “Truce. Truce.”
I hesitate, waiting for him to renig, but he seems compliant. “Sure, truce.”
He reaches for a napkin, tossing it to me, and I clean the mousse off my face. He uses another napkin to clean his and a few moments later we are good as new. I can’t help but cackle under my breath as we put the plate of dessert back on the table.
I motion for the love seat, but he pulls me toward him and grabs hold, as we stand hand in hand. He raises my arms, and nests them behind his neck as his hands stay at my hip. We sway together in silence for a brief moment before I state the obvious.
“What are you doing?”
Major’s deep voice mumbles. “Dancing.”
I glance around, feeling like a fool. “But there’s no music.”
He huffs with agitation and steps back to pull out his phone. Seconds later, music plays from his phone and he places it on the table. He brings me back to my earlier position as we sway to the song.
My lips curve into a smile. “Yes, very.”
