In Across the Distance we heard from Jillian, now its time to hear Griffin's side of the story... "I could not put it down . . . Loved it!" --Jen McLaughlin, New York Times bestselling author on Across the Distance

When Jillian moved next door, she refused to get out of the car. I climbed into the backseat beside her and promised to never leave her.

Now, I'm driving her a thousand miles away, so she can leave me. She has to go. What else would she do? Follow me and my band from one cheap bar to another, get hit on by sleazy promoters? Because Jillian would definitely get hit on. She's the most gorgeous, talented girl I've ever known, and she doesn't even see it.

This scholarship gives Jillian the chance to study at the best design school in the country. It's what she's always wanted. I won't stand in the way of her dreams, no matter how much it hurts to watch her go. I just wish she wasn't leaving without knowing the truth . . .

The first novel in this darkly sexy contemporary series from bestselling author Monica Murphy kicks off an emotionally powerful two-part tale of forbidden love.

Crazy how eight years can disappear in an instant. One look at Katie Watts, and I’m a fifteen-year-old again—the one who risked everything to save a terrified girl from her twisted kidnapper. She’s grown-up now—beautiful, quiet, composed—and telling her story to the world. A story that involves me in more ways than you can imagine. She used to call me her guardian angel. Sure, I risked my life, but she was worth dying for.

I need to make contact with her. Just to ensure that she’s safe.

Somehow we reconnect. We become friends . . . but I want more. I want to make her mine. And she wants me too. Does she know who I am? Has she figured me out? Not yet. But she will. In the meantime, I need to make sure that whatever hold that animal had on her is gone.

So, yeah, I’m stealing these moments with her. Savoring them. Knowing, dreading, that she’ll soon find out who I really am. And everything will fall apart. All because of that twisted, perverted monster sitting on death row. Her kidnapper. A convicted serial killer.

My father.

 Quand le destin fait des siennes…




– Ne me cherche pas, Jenna… grogne Thomas.

Il approche de nouveau ses lèvres de la peau tendre sous mon oreille.

– Petite chose susceptible, soupiré-je alors que sa langue humide m’envoie des signaux qui me font perdre la raison.

– Je pensais t’avoir montré l’étendue de ma petite chose tout à l’heure, rétorque-t-il.

Il sourit contre mon épiderme frissonnant, visiblement ravi de l’effet qu’il a sur moi.

– Justement, à ce propos…

– Je t’écoute, m’encourage-t-il tout en poursuivant sa douce torture.

– Prétentieux…

– Moi ? ricane-t-il innocemment, alors que ses doigts succèdent à sa bouche dans un frôlement envoûtant.

– La modestie t’étouffe.

C’est une morsure pas plus douloureuse qu’une piqûre de moustique qui répond à mon attaque délibérée, mais je tiens à garder l’avantage de cet échange.




Forte et déterminée, Jenna tient d’une main de maître le bar que son grand-père lui a légué. Dans sa vie, tout est bien réglé, au millimètre près.

Quand elle rencontre Thomas, garagiste le jour et chanteur de rock la nuit, elle est aussitôt bouleversée. Par sa voix, son charisme et sa gentillesse.

Alors que leur désir est réciproque, Jenna apprend une mauvaise nouvelle. La pire qui soit.

Quand la mort est une promesse, l’amour est la plus brève des étincelles…
