A broken nation, a lonely orphan, and a boarding house of dangerous secrets…
Ever since the letter had come, Linney had imaged Aunt Eba’s face—the same eager smile as her father’s, the same happy laugh, the same kind eyes.
But when she arrives from the orphanage to her aunt’s boarding house, the last of her hope crashes into reality: Aunt Eba doesn’t want her. No one does. No one ever will. And all the blame lies in every last blue belly who took her father’s life.
Then something changes. A locked door upstairs, strange noises, a hand wrapped in chains—until Linney is forced into the kind of nightmare she never imagined.
Would her father ever forgive her if she rescued an enemy? Would she ever forgive herself if she didn’t?
Would the penalty for his questions—and his love—be lethal?
He’s got it all—looks, charisma, the compelling grin—everything Hollywood could ever ask for. Cass Remmlone is finally living his dreams. Maybe he’s not like he used to be. Maybe he doesn’t call home anymore, doesn’t read his Bible, doesn’t darken the doors of a church. But he’s having fun—and he’s having it with his best friend, Eddie Barlow.
Cass should have known God wouldn’t shut His eyes forever. Chastisement slams so fast Cass hardly knows what’s happening. Eddie is lying on the pavement, paramedics hunkering over him, even as his face goes slack. He whispers one name: Madeline.
Drowning in the horrors of his grief, Cass climbs into his convertible and drives away, leaving behind a career he spent most of his life pursuing. With nothing more than a letter and a name to go on, Cass finds himself in a town called Angel Gate, West Virginia, where he hopes to uncover more about the woman named Madeline. It is mere providence that leads him to the rundown farm, where he catches his first sight of Audrey Wade. If he thought she was beautiful before, the fact that she wants nothing to do with him only increases his attraction. But are his efforts even fruitful? Or is he wasting his time?
The longer he spends in Angel Gate, the more he begins to sense something sinister. A child is in danger, yet no one seems to notice. And who is Madeline? Why does the town go hush at the sound of her name? The closer he comes to the answers, the deeper he sinks into a nightmare.
Cass Remmlone can star in a movie…but can he rescue a child, win Audrey’s heart, and uncover a grisly truth? Or will he die trying?
He only wanted justice. She only wanted peace.
Gabe Anderson didn’t come to San Belfry to kill. He didn’t even know he’d left a widow until it was too late. But it wasn’t his fault. He had done the only thing he could do, because he had to find those men. He had to uncover their masks. He couldn’t let his brother’s killers go unpunished.
Essie Kincaid didn’t even see it coming. She didn’t know the truth until it was too late, until her husband was dead. Now she’s faced with the wrath of an entire town. She’s an outcast for the second time, and as her world sinks deeper into an abyss of madness, she must fight for the only thing she has left . . . her life.
As the two are thrown together in a devastating plight, it doesn’t make sense for them to fall in love. Too much has happened. Too much lingers between them. Yet as their bruised souls begin to mend together, other forces are already forming to keep them apart. Does their last hope of happiness even stand a chance?
