Emmy couldn’t resist Nathaniel Walsh. She couldn’t deny the electricity between them, the utter animal magnetism she felt for him. Emmy was mystified by someone as honest and uncomplicated as Nathaniel allowing her to lead him into the dark. She adored having him at the end of her lash.
But Emmy had secrets - deep, cruel truths - that had lead her to Club Imperial, and staying with Nathaniel would mean telling him everything. He wasn't ready for that.
Neither was she.
After the viscous attack, Nathaniel has enlisted the help of his brother and Club Imperial's owner to make sure that Emmy's secret life doesn't make the headlines, or interfere with the justice her attack deserves. To make matters worse, Emmy wakes up with absolutely no memory of the attack.
Recovering from her injuries at North Woods, Nathaniel's sprawling estate, Emmy has too much time to reflect on what's happened to quickly: new friends, a new way of life, a new boyfriend, and a brand new threat.
With a simple phone call, her past crashes head-long into her present. Her mother suddenly reappears in her life and brings with her all the terrible things Emmy thought she left behind. Old scars are ripped open and Emmy's not sure she can make it through the pain again.
She has to let Nathaniel go to protect him from the hell that is her past...
But he's not letting her walk away, not until he shows her that she's broken those bonds.
