Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they're products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, weird…

Celia’s a girl in trouble.  Her heart is bound to Aric, but he is a pureblood were who must deny her or risk condemning his species to extinction.  And that’s just her love life. She’s also been called to take down a group of demon terrorists looking to overthrow the paranormal world. (No pressure.)

In order to bring them down, Celia must ally herself to Misha, the master vampire who has made no secret of his desire for her.

And if that weren’t enough misfortune for one girl, a clairvoyant’s prediction could destroy Celia and Aric’s love for good. The only way to protect the world from unbridled supernatural terrorism is for Celia to bind herself to her destined mate. And that doesn’t appear to be Aric…

Hailed as “sexy and heartbreaking” by Monica Murphy and “pure reading bliss” by Sawyer Bennett, Cecy Robson’s Shattered Past series has everything: blistering passion, college-age angst, and mouth-watering MMA studs. And it all revolves around one irresistible family with a troubled history. Now all three novels—Once Perfect, Once Loved, and Once Pure—are together in one steamy eBook bundle.
 
ONCE PERFECT
 
Struggling to pay her college tuition in the wake of tragedy, Evelyn Preston is waitressing at a nightclub where she has more in common with the preppy clientele than her new co-workers. Still, she can’t deny her attraction to the sexy six-foot-four bouncer and ex-army MMA fighter Mateo Tres Santos. Mateo wound up in prison for assaulting the man who harmed his sister. Now he’s feeling the same protective impulse for Evelyn. And he’s determined to find out what nightmares are lurking in Evelyn’s past—even if that means tackling his own to save her.
 
ONCE LOVED
 
Every memory Lety Tres Santos has from her childhood comes with a scar. College offers a fresh start . . . until her father finds a way to ruin that, too. Now, after losing her scholarship, Lety is determined to stay in school, and she intends to do it without any help from Brody Quaid: lacrosse star, 4.0 student—and Lety’s ex-boyfriend. Their relationship crashed and burned because Brody couldn’t break through her walls, but with Lety hurting more than ever, he’s desperate to win her back. And that will mean trusting someone more than he’s ever dared.
 
ONCE PURE
 
Sofia Tres Santos remembers a time before her innocence was ripped away, before she began punishing herself with risky behavior and unworthy men. Now, at twenty, she’s ready to rebuild, and she keeps coming back to her childhood friend and longtime crush, Killian O’Brien. When she agrees to work at his gym, Killian seizes the opportunity to train her in his hard-hitting MMA techniques. But as Sofia grows stronger, she challenges everything he believes, showing him that no matter how much he dominates in the ring, the real battle is fought in the heart.

He’s the campus golden boy. She’s picking up the pieces of her broken past. But in Cecy Robson’s scorching novel of second chances—perfect for readers of Monica Murphy and J. Lynn—their differences only make their connection more explosive.

Every memory Lety Tres Santos has from her childhood comes with a scar—some emotional, some physical. Her father is an abusive drug addict, and her mother enables his destructive behavior. College offers Lety a fresh start . . . until her father finds a way to ruin that, too. Now, after losing her scholarship to kick off junior year, Lety must somehow stay in school, pay tuition, and turn a deaf ear to the whispers that follow her. And she intends to do it all without Brody Quaid’s help.

Brody is a lacrosse star, a 4.0 student—and as a freshman, he fell hard for the beautiful and spirited Lety. But their relationship crashed and burned because he couldn’t break through the walls she’s put up around her heart. With Lety hurting more than ever, Brody strives to win her back and make her believe in real love and true partnership. That will mean opening up secrets locked away in his own past—and trusting someone more than he’s ever dared.

Lety knows how painful it can be to depend on the wrong man. She also knows how much Brody wants to do this the right way. But it takes more than sizzling desire to move on and build a future together.
