(A Survivor series novel)


Deborah Leigh

Dark contemporary romance with a HEA

Release Date 4th of January 2017





When the worst thing imaginable happens to Mary Dougal, her physical body might have survived but her soul feels like it has died. Now the only thing getting her up every morning is the thought of revenge. Making her attackers pay will be the final act in her life.

Feeling like half a man after a tragic accident, former soldier Cain “Ace” Turner has given up on even the idea of love. He’s focused on building his construction business and trying to leave his painful past behind him. With his family’s support and sometimes unwelcome meddling, he tries to just live one day at a time.

Of course love doesn’t give up that easily, and it just might be the only thing to save them both. When these two meet and get surprised by possibilities, can they prove together that love truly conquers all?

Short Excerpt:

I was right to anticipate the nightmares. I wake up in the middle of the night. Luckily it’s before I get to the screaming part of my nightmare. I normally wake Angel and she comes to sit with me, holding my hand, or holding me if I can handle it, until I calm down enough to fall back asleep … or until I chase her back to bed when I realize I’m not going to be able to. Sometimes she makes me some warm milk or soothing tea. I wonder every now and then how she can still function on the little sleep she gets. I wake her at least three times a week.

At about two a.m., I give up and get up to watch crappy TV. My mind starts to wander and I go through the conversations and interactions I had with my family. I sometimes miss the natural openness we once had with each other.

I also admit to myself that I do look unhealthy. James is totally correct to worry about me, but the day I’ll destroy Tommy has been consuming me. I’m hoping my body will bounce back once it’s over, but I don’t hold out much hope.

Over the years, my family has figured out that I want revenge. To save me from being destroyed by my quest, they’ve often tried to steer me away from it. James has been more vocal about it than my parents, only because he missed a lot of the trial and details about what happened to me. I hate keeping secrets from him, but he just wouldn’t understand. They have no idea what I’m planning or the depth of my hatred. I want to save them from it.

It’s my darkness to carry.
