“He did more than break your heart, didn’t he?”

Emma Marshall is haunted by memories of a horrific attack she can’t bury deep enough. Most of all, Emma is haunted by fear — fear that she will never be free of her abusive ex’s control, fear she will never be able to trust another man again.

No one knows the unspeakable truth of what happened between Emma and her ex-fiancé Beaux. It’s a secret Emma plans to carry to the grave, until Julian Cole, a music executive with a dark past of his own, moves in next door and opens Emma’s mind and heart to the possibility of love after a violent betrayal. As the reporter and music executive grow closer in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, Emma realizes she must face her past in order to heal and move forward with Julian. But Emma soon learns Beaux will do anything to keep his sins a secret.

Emma must risk everything to protect her newfound happiness and Julian from Beaux’s threats. Putting her investigative skills to good use, Emma embarks on a dangerous journey to gather evidence and bring Beaux to justice. But the deeper Emma gets into Beaux’s wicked world, the more complicated things become. How far will Beaux go to keep his secrets? How far will Emma go to protect the ones she loves? Find out in this women’s empowerment thriller about life and love after abuse.

I stumble inside to see our French cottage completely transformed into a New Orleans night. French lanterns illuminate the small space. Fake ferns fill every corner. Vines along with rows of string lights drape from the ceiling and make the living room feel like an enchanted garden. Beyond it is the kitchen and dining room, where beignets are stacked high and strangers dressed in white chef outfits move about as if in a fit as they prepare a meal—I bet more delicious than anything I’ve ever tasted. And yet, in all the perfection, in all the beauty, is an underlying feeling of dread.

“Welcome home!” everyone cheers, and by everyone, I do mean everyone. Kat, our friends, my boss, coworkers I never speak to, my parents (Oh God!), and, of course, my fiancé, Beaux Thomas, stands in the middle of them all.
