Gage and Riley were once lovers, but a deadly twist of fate tore them apart. Now, one year later, they’re thrown together by a murder in which Gage was the intended victim and Riley is wanted for the crime.

In this sample, Riley has just returned home after a heartbreaking confession from Gage, only to discover a killer waited there for her.

Hatred flashed deep in his eyes, but before he could speak the rush of tires on gravel drew his attention to the window.

From her vantage point on the floor, she couldn’t see who pulled up, but from the urgent roar of gravel flying, she could guess.


*Spoiler* grinned. “Well, lookey here. He was even quicker than I expected.” With a sick laugh, he dropped the beer to the floor and hoisted the Sharps, taking aim through the broken window.

She didn’t dare doubt he meant business, and only one thing stood between Gage and that bullet: her.

When the roar of a gunshot shattered the silence, she didn’t blink.

And that’s it for UNFORGIVEN! I hope you enjoyed it, and if you’d like to find out how it ends, you can use the links below to add it to your GoodReads page or reading library.

Riley Beckett’s past just came back to haunt her . . . and this time, he’s got a gun.

When Gage Lawton finds his brother shot dead on his back porch, every shred of evidence points to one person: Gage’s former lover, Riley. He and she didn’t part ways on good terms, and he’s not planning to rekindle anything now–not when he’s got a revolver pointed at her head and a finger on the trigger.

A year after Riley swore she and Gage were over, he returns in a hail of gunfire. One look into those achingly familiar blue eyes and she knows how wrong she was to let him go, but now far more than their heated past stands in the way. A twist of fate puts them in the crosshairs of a killer, leaving Riley with two slim options:  trust her greatest betrayer or face a murderer on her own.
