I should have known it would always come down to this, from the very moment I laid eyes on him in that motel.
I should have known his salvation was too good to be true.

Now there's only hate.
Now I just want to escape.
Even if it means I have to kill him to be free.

People aren’t born monsters.
They’re made that way.
After all, how do you fight the darkness when you’re thrust into it?
Same goes for vengeful beasts. They aren’t born. They’re created, fuelled by one singular moment in time when the universe wrongs them and their existence shatters.
I’d been with Dornan Ross for almost a decade. Slept in his bed, sewn up his wounds, tasted his blood, seen inside his soul.
I was the mistress of a monstrous man. Dornan Ross, vice-president of one of the most feared biker gangs in the United States.
Son of the most powerful drug kingpin along the West Coast.
A man whose entire being was predicated on violence, blood and death.
But even I wasn’t prepared for what he did.
He killed our child. He put his boot into my stomach and kicked our baby to death.
