(The Confidence Game Duet Book 2)
Author: Rachel Higginson
Five years ago, I escaped a dangerous life I had always wanted to leave. I got away. I found freedom. But it cost me the love of my life.
For five years I lived in hiding, protecting my most valuable secret while Sayer Wesley sat in prison paying for both our sins. I promised to love him forever. I promised to never leave him.
I broke my promises.
Five months ago Sayer found me.
Five weeks ago, I was forced to face my past.
Five days ago, someone took my daughter. They kidnapped her in order to make Sayer and me suffer. I will do anything to get her back. Even if that means coming clean to Sayer, letting him into my life and introducing him to our daughter.
All I wanted was to protect her from this life and now she’s right in the middle of the chaos. Sayer is the only one that can help me. He’s the only one that can get her back.
But it might mean losing him again.
Fifteen years ago, I met Sayer Wesley. Now I must pay the consequences for falling in love with a con man.
“You’re a good man, Sayer Wesley.”
The words hit me harder than I could have ever anticipated. They washed over my like a tsunami, a violent rush of waves and rock and sand. One minute I was standing tall and then next I was being tossed in the rocky, unpredictable current, pulled under by forces greater and bigger and more dangerous than I could ever be. I couldn’t see. I couldn’t breathe. I was lost to the undertow of this woman that held all of me in the palm of her hand.
Nobody had ever said that to me. Probably because it wasn’t true. I wasn’t a good man. I was the opposite. I had been born and bred a criminal. I lived my life in dark deeds and reckless pursuits, with men more evil than even me. Caro was my one redeeming quality, the one pure and lovely thing I’d spent nearly my whole life trying to tie to me just so I wouldn’t only be worthless, just so my soul wouldn’t only be tainted and poisoned.
And she thought I was good? It didn’t seem possible.
“I love you,” I told her, unable to form or think or say anything else.
Her smile was sweet, adoring, utterly perfect. “I love you too.”
Start the series TODAY!
Fifteen years ago I met Sayer Wesley. I fell in love with him. I promised I would never leave him. I swore nothing could break us apart.
Five years ago I broke my promise. I ran away. I took the one secret that could destroy us both and disappeared.
Five days ago I thought I saw him.
I knew it was impossible. Sayer was locked away, serving a deserved sentence in federal prison. He couldn’t find me.
He wouldn’t find me. I was too good at hiding. Too good at surviving.
Because if Sayer ever found me, there would be hell to pay for a plethora of sins. The worst of which, he didn’t even know about.
Five hours ago, I told myself I was crazy.
Five minutes ago, I saw him again.
Five seconds ago, I was too late.
