One night to ruin everything I thought I knew.
From the outside, I had the perfect lifestyle.
Wealthy fiancé, blossoming career, amazing friends.
I wasn’t looking to get married yet, but when William—“Manhattan’s royalty”—charmed his way into my life, I couldn’t deny the security and comfort that overcame me.
To society, I was the girl only after his money. I was the party-goer who managed to seduce a man twice my age to have the lifestyle some could only dream of. I was every magazine’s cliché of what a gold-digging whore was.
I wanted to prove them wrong—that our love was real and that I wasn’t that girl.
But then everything changed.
One wrong decision. One unfaithful night. One haunting reality.
Perhaps they were right.
The media didn’t see it coming... and neither did I.
This is a stand alone romance suspense novel with no cliffhanger. HEA depends on who you ask. Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.

I stared out of the large floor to ceiling window as the rain poured over New York City. It was a gloomy and cloudy spring day. I focused on the street walkers covering themselves up with umbrellas and oversized jackets. It was like deja vu…I felt the same feeling, that same fear. Everything around me moved in slow motion as the events from that day played out in front of me.
Blood. So much blood.
I felt my stomach threatening to empty the contents of my breakfast as I heard the screeching voice of my boss, Laura. “Mackenzie!” I quickly spun around to her opening the door. “I have a lunch meeting at one o’clock,” she informed me with cold eyes. “We’ll be eating in the conference room. Make sure our order is here on time,” she said firmly, emphasizing the word time. I was still learning my way around the company and calling in quick favors wasn’t easy.
