Fierce. Scarred. Ginormous grump.
And I get to tell him he's a father...
Brilliant life decisions--falling for the bad guy.
Leo damn Regis. Hated scourge of Heart's Edge.
A wall with arms and legs. Hercules dipped in ink. Incandescent eyes.
The legend, the outcast, the boy I loved.
But the man they call "Nine" isn't the villain they think.
He saved my life and seared my heart once upon a messed up time.
We planned our great escape. He made promises in diamond.

I'm not here to kiss and make up. I'm looking for my missing sister.
Only one hulking, gravel-voiced man has the clues.
Ugh. I so don't need Leo's protection.
Don't even get me started on his oh-so-secret past.
The best part? He doesn't have a clue what I'm hiding.
It's got ten little fingers and ten little toes and eyes just like his.
I'm no beauty. He's too beast. Fun times ahead.
They say you can't run forever. Sometimes you stand. Sometimes you fight.
And sometimes an unbroken hero barges back in to lay down the law...
