Hugo’s characters are complex and tortured so their stories take the forefront of the narrative for me.
One woman fighting for her future, two men trapped by their past …
One taste of Jerricho Black, Dom for hire, and Scarlet Bailey knows she’s made a big mistake. It’s not the sting of his crop but the intimacy that makes her come undone. The threat made all the more real when her husband hires his services for the next forty days.
Wrongly suspected of a crime he didn’t commit, on the run and in trouble, Jerricho needs the money Killian Bailey offers him. Sleeping with another man’s wife is nothing personal, but every day Scarlet slips deeper into his blood.
Killian tells himself he is not worthy of his wife, not after she got hurt on his watch, and not until he gets his revenge. Now he’s hired a man to give Scarlet what he can’t. So why does he want to hit the man?
Sometimes home feels strange and a stranger feels like home … sometimes the only redemption you find is the one you bought.
