Beautiful Ashes Series, Book 3
By Lora Ann
Genre: Dark Romance, Supernatural Erotic Thriller
Tar's lost in the halls of his own mind.
His body haunted by desires, his heart burning with a strange, familiar fire.
All he can think about is tasting her, knowing her, owning her.
But especially remembering her.
ExcerptEach sat at the table caught in the seriousness of the situation. Chase might be dead and they needed confirmation one way or the other. He was key to Keeley’s strategy. Goddamn plan was what set them all on edge. Could they really support such an out of the box idea? Then again, it was the only choice that made sense.
“You understand that you may not come back from this, baby girl?” Nik held her gaze with firm conviction that she wasn’t seeing this clearly.
Keeley nodded in response.
His responsibility to be the voice of reason. “No. You answer me loud and clear. Because I’m not just talking physically.”
Her head angled. “What do you mean?”
“He’s saying,” E cocked his jaw, “you may not come back mentally or emotionally from this.”
Mitch leveled his gaze on hers from across the table. “And even if you come back unscathed, you may lose Tar forever.” He sighed. “Have you considered the two options carefully?”
“Two?” Her brows scrunched with consideration. She thought she’d weighed the possibilities before ever speaking up.
“One…he won’t ever regain his memory to care what you’ve done.” He held up his second finger. “Two…he’ll never, ever forgive you for something that damn near tore out his heart once before.”
“Wait!” E came to her defense. “Do you honestly think she’d actually let another man touch her sexually after that debacle with Braxton?”
Mitch’s brows were raised. Keeley’s eyes darted from E to Nik to Mitch. A cold settled over her as her pulse raced. Not out of the desire for pain but fear she couldn’t stop herself if presented with the opportunity. Tar’s anguish danced through her memory. How she almost destroyed their love over a fucking addiction she never wanted. With a deep fortifying breath, she met each pair of eyes. Resolve settling in her gut as she declared, “God as my witness, I will do everything in my power to save the man I love. If, at any point, I feel that I’m incapable of this operation, rest assured, I know how to phone home.”
E’s lips raised in a slight smile. “Atta girl.”
“Okay then,” Nik placed his hand on her shoulder.
Mitch stood. “Let’s get this show on the road.”
Keeley watched each man take his leave. What they didn’t quite comprehend was that she not only wanted to do this for Tar, she needed to do it for herself. She had to know if she really could stand in and sacrifice it all for love. Her heart demanded she learn to fight when everything screamed turn and run. She pushed back from the table and caught her reflection from a mirror on the wall. “Time to see what you’re really made of, Keeley Ann. Sink or swim.”
