" ... It [THE TOKEN] has all of the hallmarks that I have come to love about her writing - a strong heroine, a tortured hero and a wickedly smart plot that seduces you from the very beginning. This book made my "Best of 2013" list and now I can't wait to get my next Marata fix..."- Autumn, Martini Times
Faren doesn't think her heart can break any further until Mick discovers her sullied secret in the worst way possible.
Faren picks up the shattered remnants of her emotions and moves forward with a desperate plan to win Mick back that doesn't involve one penny of his billions. When Faren sees what remains of her life coming together with a synchronicity she can only dream of, the unexpected happens with Jay—and she must play a razor's edge of deception once again.
Can she tie this final loose end and receive the money from that aborted last dance before the countdown of debt has expired? Will a dirty cop and the long arm of Ronnie Bunce conspire to ruin the fragile bond she's created with Mick? Or will the concessions Faren's made along the way shatter the dark joy she has been given ....
Jay puts pressure on Faren for more than she's willing to give. With the discovery of a deeper secret than she can keep to herself, Faren commits to lying no more. Though the goal of her mother's debt has been absolved and is safe from transport, Faren struggles with concerns over her long term care.
When Mick finds out the absolute truth, the dynamic of their relationship changes to include something she never expected to have: hope.
On the cusp of a new reality, with more than just herself to be responsible for, Faren elicits Thorn's help to take down the corruption that's closing in around the tight group.
How long can Faren keep those at bay that wish to destroy the fragile happiness between Mick and Faren? Will blackmail be successful in ruining the one thing Faren's decided she wants even more than her own life?
Faren is blown away about the dual revelation of her health. A different threat against her mother remains, while Mick and Faren execute caution with the excavation of the past. Neither want Thorn to suffer for something he's not responsible for.
The lesson taught to Ronnie Bunce didn't stick and he has connections that even Mick's monetary status can't silence. When its discovered the players on the chessboard have been closing in for a checkmate against Faren and Mick, Faren uses whatever's at hand to save the one she cares about the most.
Will the gauntlet Faren rushes through put everything she cares about to the test? Does this final danger erase the seeds of the truth she's finally come to terms with—or will the larger threat irrevocably damage her most precious treasure?
