Sarah’s world turns upside down as she struggles with her unexpected attraction to Ethan and the guilt of betraying her husband’s memory. But when blue roses and disturbing notes start appearing on her doorstep, she has no choice but to lean on Ethan as he fights to save her from a stalker that won’t stop until he has what he prizes most.

“Sorry. Nicolette, this is Sarah Johnson and her daughter, Kylee.”

Smiling, Sarah extended her hand, trying to be gracious. “It’s nice to meet you, Nicolette.”

Nicolette barely touched her fingers. “Your name is familiar to me. Do you model or act?”

Sarah laughed. “Neither. I’m a photographer.”

Nicolette narrowed her eyes. “Ah, yes. Sarah Johnson, ‘Photographer to the Stars.’ This is why I have heard of you. I read your magazine, Celebrity.”

“I freelance for them when a client requests it.”

“How nice, but I do not like you photographers. You are all so pushy.” She scrutinized Sarah’s face. “You are an attractive woman. Perhaps you should try standing in front of the camera sometime. This is where the hard work starts, no?”

“Put away the claws, Nicky,” Ethan said with a tinge of warning.

More than finished with their conversation, Sarah took Kylee from Ethan. “If you’ll excuse us, Hunter and Morgan are probably wondering where we are.” She met Ethan’s gaze for a heartbeat, turned, and left. She definitely didn’t like that woman. Nicolette was incredibly rude, but that wasn’t the problem. In her line of work, beautiful, ill-mannered women were part of the package. It was Nicolette’s eyes. In the depths of their chocolate brown perfection, she’d seen a streak of viciousness. Couldn’t Ethan see it, or was he too caught up in her long black hair and French accent?

As they walked toward the stairs, Kylee began to fuss. “I want Ethan.”

“We’ll see him later.” She kissed Kylee’s forehead. “He’s busy right now.”

Book Summary:
In one night, I lost everything: my hopes and dreams, my best friend, and Shadow’s heart. He told me he loved me, but it was just a lie.

The Midnight Society has fallen, reduced to ashes by a monster--a person whom we all once trusted.  The betrayal has shattered our lives forever and Shadow, Lord of the Midnight Society, finds himself at a crossroad.

One road leads him further down the path of vengeance, filled with unending violence and dead bodies. The other road leads to me. However, our path to happiness is paved with broken glass and razorblades, and at some point, one of us is going to fall.

Welcome to the world of the Midnight Society.

About Logan Patricks

Logan discovered both love and heartbreak at the tender age of seven, when the pretty little blue-eyed girl next door stole his Kit-Kat bar and shared it with the bad boy from across the street. Devastated, Logan found solace by escaping into imaginary worlds he forged with words, creating kingdoms where the chivalrous knight always got the princess.

Twenty three years later Logan spends his days in a suit and tie, working for the government on matters of network security. However his thoughts never strayed too far from the incendiary nature of love — the passionate fire that’s both scintillating and dangerous. Obsessed with exploring the steamy and mysterious side of human nature, Logan continues to create worlds filled with thrills, mystery, and of course, sex.
