This gentle giant's scarred hands may be the warmest touch she'll ever know.
...if only life were a fairy tale where Beauty got to keep her Beast
A darkly possessive relationship has left Uma alone and on the run. Beneath her drab clothing, she hides a terrible secret—proof of her abuse, tattooed on her skin in a lurid reminder of everything she's survived. Caught between a brutal past and an uncertain future, Uma's relucant to bare herself to anyone, much less a rough ex-con whose rage drives him in ways she'll never understand.
Ivan thought the world was through giving him second chances. Until Uma came into his life. Until she changed everything. Until he realized he would do anything, fight anyone, and tear the world apart if it only meant saving her.
This dark romance is an emotional tale of survival and contains strong themes of past domestic/sexual abuse. Please see reviews for details.
