Love isn’t supposed to be an addiction. It isn’t supposed to leave you bleeding. Kona pushed, Keira pulled, and in their wake, they left behind destruction.
She sacrificed everything for him.
It wasn’t enough.
But the wounds of the past can never be completely forgotten and still the
flame remains, slumbers between the pleasure of yesterday and the thought of
what might have been.
Now, sixteen years later, Keira returns home to bury the mother who betrayed
her, just as Kona tries to hold onto what remains of his NFL career with the
New Orleans Steamers. Across the crowded bustle of a busy French Market, their
paths collide, conjuring forgotten memories of a consuming touch, skin on skin,
and the still smoldering fire that begs to be rekindled.
When Kona realizes the trifecta of betrayal—his, Keira’s and those lies told to
keep them apart—his life is irrevocably changed and he once again takes Keira
down with him into the fire that threatens to ignite them both.
Keira Riley was the girl Kona Hale loved first, the woman he wants to love last. They’ve battled addiction, forgiven betrayal and healed from heartache, coming through it all bruised but hopeful that their future will be limitless. Kona Hale was a blinding flame that Keira Riley gladly burned inside—his touch, his kiss, his overwhelming love, all made her dizzy, desperate and desired, made her believe in a love worth bleeding for, a love that ignites the heart
with an unquenchable flame. But when you fall in love with an NFL darling who
can’t seem to let go of the spotlight, sometimes even that flame can be gutted
by the buffeting winds of opportunity, can be lost behind the brilliant flash
As Keira and Kona get caught up in plans for an extravagant march down the
aisle, the hard won sanctuary they’ve found in each other’s arms begins to
erode. Will they be able to see through all the beckoning glitz and glamour to
what they have worked so hard to build together, or will their love be lost in
freshman on a championship-winning college football team. A father with two
Super Bowl rings. A mother with platinum albums and multiple Grammies under her
belt. But that brilliant shine on the surface hides the darkness beneath; it’s
all Ransom has ever known.Despite the shadows he walked in, once there was a blinding light fracturing the darkness. It brought the promise of hope and happiness.
Now, the shadows are dimming again. Aly King surges into his life threatening
to pull him from the darkness. She is everything Ransom can never be again. Her
light feels too warm, promises him that there is more waiting for him beyond
But the shadows are relentless, resurfacing when he thinks he is safe, and
Ransom knows he must keep Aly from them too before he pulls her down into the
darkness with him.
My love was thick.
Her faith was thin.
Somewhere in the middle is where life found us.
I claimed her when I was a boy.
I held her until I was a man.
She was my first thought every morning, my last smile at night, and a million
memories in between.
Then one night, with her warmth still lingering on the sheets, Aly King walked
away from me, from us, from our life.
They say time heals all wounds, but not for me.
Not when my heart is empty.
Not when there is nothing but a sea of meaningless faces wherever I go.
It always comes back to her.
Aly needs reminding of how drunk our love made us, before she forgets
Before we lose our chance.
Before we are irrevocably broken.
That moment comes for Keira Riley-Hale when her marriage is threatened and she
forgets how to find her way back to her husband. Will a brief getaway to the
Tennessee mountains bring Keira and Kona to the moment that changes everything in their marriage? Or will that moment never come?
