After a downward spiral, Matthew secluded himself in his prison of darkness, but his sister and friends helped him find his way. Having worked hard to become a Master Instructor in Close Quarters Combat, Matthew's world seems normal until tragedy strikes.

When Dawn’s life is threatened, Matthew refuses to let her deal with it alone. Can Dawn trust him to protect her? Will Matthew finally believe he can have sunshine in his world?


EXCERPT

I woke up to total darkness. I didn’t know if I was dead or alive until I tried to blink, but the pain was worse if I tried to breathe or move, so I figured I must be alive and in hell. Turns out I was right.
I wanted to fight the suffocating fear that came over me. I tried to calm my panic and assess the circumstances.
I was definitely lying in a bed. I felt buried alive. Is there a blanket over my face? Am I paralyzed? Why can’t I move? Why can’t I see or hear anything except incessant beeping?
Hot waves of pain crashed over me, reverberating through every fiber of my body. All the limbs must have been there; I felt pain fucking everywhere. Surely if I had lost some parts, they wouldn’t be hurting so much. Able to move one hand, I used it to explore. Painfully reaching up to feel my face covered with bandages, I discovered wires sticking out from it. My lips were rough and hard; they didn’t feel like lips. I could put the tip of my pinky in my partially open mouth, but then wires and braces stopped it from further exploration. Oh shit, this is going to totally suck.
I moved my hand downward to the bandages covering my chest and then over my stomach to my dick—limper than I ever remembered it being, but at least all in one piece. My entire right side was heavily bandaged, radiating with agonizing pain.
What happened to me? What the fuck happened to me, and what’s coming next?
I started to panic again, which caused the telemetry heart monitor to beep so loudly I didn’t hear the nurse come in.
“You’ll be all right.” The nurse’s hands were firm, yet gentle, as she soothed my arm tied to the bedside. “Try to relax. I’m giving you something in your IV to help you calm down.”
I escaped the only way I could, back into oblivion.

PERFECT Storm

BlurbMace Dark. Dangerous. Messed up. Yeah, I may be all of those things, but with her I’m not. She taught me how to love, how to be a one woman man. Except now my woman wants to leave me, ‘cause I can’t promise her forever. I know I’d never want anyone else but she wants the ring to prove it. Not to mention the baby. But if she knew about my past she’d run far and fast. Then I’d have no choice but to chase her, ‘cause I can’t let her get away. Cory I hate him. I love him. I want him. I need him. I hate myself for being weak and caving every every time he touches me. But I can’t help myself. He’s just that good. I can’t get over him if I’m always under him, but he’s not letting me go without a fight and you’d have to have an iron will to resist this man.
