When you’ve spent your life hiding from monsters, it seems reasonable that you might cling to a magical, fabled romance.
I did. I found it was easier to look for the positive, to remain hopeful, and to sometimes imagine a fantasy-worthy life.
I’m not sure if I did it for my sanity or to keep my brother’s spirits up. You see, Ransom Bishop is not only my brother, he’s also the one who saved me from a life that would’ve ended badly, and in doing so, he gave up so much. Since the day he stole me away from the monsters when I was nine years old, Ransom has been mother, father, brother, and best friend, watching my back and protecting me from … them.
For fifteen years, we thought we were safe and maybe we were. But then my brother helped a friend in need, and everything changed.
They found us.
Now it’s a matter of life or death, and there’s only one person my brother trusts, one man Ransom is willing to be indebted to in an effort to ensure nothing happens to me.
Talon has agreed to take me in.
Under one condition: Ransom has to relocate with me, and he has to fake our deaths. Again.
Little do I know, but Talon is going to change my perception, my ideals, and yes, he’s going to change my life.
My name is Braelyn Bishop, and this is my fairy tale.
Owned is the final book in the Office Intrigue series and it contains two storylines. This book can be read as a standalone.
