Halliday was an accident. A chance meeting that changed my life forever.
My mother didn’t have secrets; her secrets had her. After she disappeared, I
had nothing.
Or so I thought.


When the invitation arrived, the opportunity to learn about my mother’s past
was too great to pass up. Heading west to meet an aunt I had never heard of, I
knew I was taking a risk, but I craved answers. Instead, I ended up with more
questions, and now the dark history of this town threatens to tear me apart.


It’s all about him.

I knew this was a mistake.Stella
Bradleigh was a distraction. Something to play with when my shadows got too

I spent my entire existence forced to live a life I didn’t want. There was only
one way out.

Or so I thought.

When she arrived, none of us had any idea what it meant. Meeting the beautiful
stranger with the mysterious past, I thought she would be a good time, and then
I could just throw her away like all the others. Instead, she consumed me, and
now she’s made me question everything I know to be real in my life.

It’s all about her.

I knew I was a mistake.Sometimes
what seems most fragile can’t be broken.

“Who do you think you are? There are rules here, and low-class sluts like
you follow them or else.” 
taken aback by her hostility, it takes me a few beats to register the rest of
her words. Trashy bitch, I can handle. Low-class, well, she’s not entirely
wrong. But slut?
Nuh-uh. No way, no day.
I stand,
pulling myself up to my full five feet eight inches, and get nose to nose with
Fascist Barbie.
princess, I’m sitting over here, minding my own business. What the fuck have I
done to offend your delicate sensibilities? Nothing. You don’t fucking know me.
So. You. Don’t. Get. To. Call. Me. A. Slut.” I fire each staccato word at
her. Though I’m genuinely bewildered by this girl’s unmistakable hatred towards
me, I am also seriously pissed off by her shitty attitude. “Back the fuck
up, Barbie, and leave me alone. Shoo.” Flicking my fingers at her
dismissively, I stand my ground, waiting for her and her minions to leave. To
my surprise, she leans in even closer, her cloyingly sweet perfume wrapping
around me like a candy-scented lasso.
not how it works here. You don’t get to just show up out of the blue and jump
the line.” She peers spitefully down her clearly after-market nose at me.
