About this ebook

Mercury “Merc” Watson

Not your average boy next door

Hot stud, indie music fan, dirty mechanic

With a panty-melting grin

And eyes that hide dark secrets…


I’ve often seen him on campus as I run from class to class

Girls flock around him all the time

He’s too hot for words. Tall, muscular, handsome.

Also distant, arrogant, in a trajectory so far from mine I can’t hope to touch him

Maybe it’s for the best.

I’ve sworn off men, you see. For good.

Until one day he asks me out. 

Woo baby, right?

Only he thinks I’m my twin sister.

Then he admits that behind the golden façade he hides a dark secret and....

I’m hooked.

I need to know what it is. Solve the riddle.

Without losing my heart to him.

Easier said than done.

***This is a standalone, full-length romance with a HEA and no cliffhanger or cheating. ***

This is the story of Merc, brother to Gigi and Octavia whom you met in Caveman and Bad Wolf.

ANGST. HEARTBREAK. MYSTERY. LOVE. FAMILY. These are words I think of when I try to explain what I felt reading Merc’s story DARK CHILD. Merc is trapped within his mind not knowing how to process what he has witnessed as a child. His mind has blocked him from the trauma but expresses itself every night in the form of the same re accruing nightmare over and over day after day.... Cosima (cos for short) is a twin to her sister Sophie and believes she is the dark version of her sister, the one that is forgotten so to speak, not worthy of love but everything changes when Merc can’t get her out of his head. The attraction is instant, even though Merc is confused by her Hot and Cold personality with him... not knowing she is a twin until later. Cos is the only thing that quietens the noise inside Merc’s mind, with her beside him everything dulls and he has peace something he has never felt since he was 4 years old on that one fateful night that he walked out of his front door and didn’t return until the following morning. This was an amazing read and sets you up for Ross, Sophie and JC in upcoming stories which REALLY excites me!!! I can’t wait to discover their lives.
