For the first time in Clara's life, she's finally starting to feel at home in Pt. Redwood. Following her heroic endeavors six months prior, the people in town finally see her as an ally and not a threat. She and Sean have settled into a happy life and business at the Drunken Mermaid has never been better.
But if there's one thing Clara knows is to never trust the the calm before the storm.
When a local teenage girl accuses one of Pt. Redwood's esteemed elders of atrocious acts, getting him killed, Clara knows there's more to the story. This girl is terrified of something--or someone--and Clara has the sneaking suspicion she's covering for her real attacker.
Clara can't help but come to the girl's defense, jumping into the investigation. But this time, Clara might be up against an enemy she can't beat.
The greatest weakness any man can ever have is a woman.
The inherent need to protect them can become overwhelming and all consuming. It makes us think irrationally and do stupid things. In my case, falling down a rabbit hole.
My sister made a mistake. One that put us in debt with the Italian mob who owns half the state, and as payment they’ve enlisted me to work for them.
Only it isn’t them I’ll be working for.
It’s for her. Onyx Embros.
She’s a ghost, a legend, the head of their rival mafia family, and the queen of Wonderland.
In order to save my family, I have to act as her guard so they can find a way to kill her. But the longer I stay, the more I realize Onyx isn’t who I thought she was, and neither am I.
Turns out, I’m just as mad.
