By Sawyer Bennett
When you’ve lived your life as a criminal…
When you’ve done unspeakable things …
When your soul has become dark and stained…
The path to redemption begins where you least expect it.
Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world.
Little by little, she claws through his shell.
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more.
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed.
When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?
Sawyer Bennett created a miracle. She brought a dead man back to life with the slash of a pen and the imagination of a true storyteller. A man who has had readers intrigued throughout two different series that are loosely connected. Even though he wasn’t a major character in either series, his role to each series was a vital part of the story. When she killed him off in Wicked Bond, I was convinced he was truly dead. It couldn’t of played out any other way at that moment in time.
Kyle Sommerville infiltrated one of the most violent and corrupt motorcycle gangs in the western part of the country. For three long years he has been undercover and living amongst murderers. He has become one of them and has done things that have gone against his morals, his integrity, and his humanity. He has lost all decency. It might of been better if he was actually dead after the crimes and horrific acts he has committed. His life was spared and it’s his job to bring these criminals to justice. He is the key witness in several federal cases that not only include the men from the MC but also powerful political figures. His testimony is going to destroy a powerful Senator.
Kyle has made some powerful and dangerous enemies. There is a price on his head. He refuses to go into the witness protection program. He chooses to hide out in a remote town in coastal Maine as a lighthouse keeper. He never imagined moving to this remote place would give him his humanity and will to live back. He never imagined he would find a love that he’s never experienced in his life. First he has to stay alive and testify.
When his past life comes hunting him down he has to make the biggest choice of his life. Leave all the goodness life has to offer or stay and lose it all.
Sawyer Bennett gave Kyle Sommerville the ending he so richly deserved. She gave him his humanity back.
