But Ford’s investigation of the man was at a dead-end, because of one critical thing the Sheriff didn’t have — proof. Then came the anonymous letter, a missive which hinted strongly that White Valley’s dark, troubled past... might plague its present too. What’s more, the letter gave Ford that lead he so desperately needed in his investigation of Miles.
There was a problem though. To pursue that lead, Ford would have to enlist the help of his own intrepid reporter-turned-submissive playtoy — which might mean putting her in danger. In order to protect his precious, gorgeous Falon though, he would have to ask for help from the last person on earth he wanted to. A brilliant, yet tortured, man who’d spent most of his life on the opposite end of the law from Ford.
His brother, Landon.

A USA Today bestselling author, Trent Evans specializes in several flavors of BDSM erotic romance and erotica. Putting pen to paper since he was a wee lad, he decided to try to share some of the tales cooked up in his fevered imagination. Some readers might not be horrified at what he writes. He tries to write stories that appeal to both women and men (wow, threading the needle), but will follow wherever the story takes him.
A long-time resident of the Pacific Northwest, the author believes that the high percentage of authors in the region (compared to the nation as a whole) is chiefly due to the fact that it's so damned wet and miserable there.
They tend to use their long hours cooped up inside spinning yarns that depict things they'll never see or experience — such as sunshine.
