As their baby falls seriously ill, Lara finds herself wondering if Alex really cares for them at all.
Emotional and absorbing, Broken Chords is a story of desire, redemption and the crazy notion that love can still conquer all.

“Lara? You awake?”
“No.” My voice is croaky and sleep-thickened. I try to unglue my lips, running my tongue across the dry skin.
“Max is crying.”
Reluctantly, I open my eyes. “It's your turn.”
Alex smiles, making the stud in his eyebrow rise up. He's a sexy bastard and he knows it, even at four o’clock in the morning.
“I've been up three times, but he won't settle. I don't have the right equipment.” Alex is still smirking when he glances at my chest then looks down at his own. I follow his gaze to his taut, muscled skin, and the vibrant ink etched upon it. I know every line, every colour. I’ve kissed my way across them so many times.
Slowly, I sit up and swing my legs to the side of the bed. My head starts to swim at the suddenness of my movement, and I have to brace myself on the mattress.
