His name is Beat, and I should hate him.
Bound, blindfolded and bruised, I'm tied in his basement, waiting for the men who stripped me from clothes and humanity to collect his debt to them. Me.
His name is Nate and I should hate him, but I don't.
I'm not supposed to know his real name, even worse, I'm not supposed to care. He is nothing to me but means to an end. The plan is simple: break free, collect the pieces of my broken soul, kill the bastards and run away.
His name is Nathaniel Thomas Vela, and I've never seen his face, though I hear that it's beautiful.
Behind the rugged and handsome exterior, there's a quiet murderer, a killer who thinks guns are for pussies and ends people with his bare hands.
His name doesn't matter, neither does his face, but what does matter is my heart. And right now, sadly, it's his.
**Blood to Dust is a standalone, full-length novel. It contains graphic violence and adult situations some may find offensive.
Review by Anne Milne
Beat meets Godfrey in prison but when he gets out he owes him a favour and he's calling it in... and taking care of Prescott is the favour.
Prescott is a fascinating character. At first glance she's just another little rich girl, but don't underestimate her. She's determined, strong, singleminded and manipulative. She's so good at it too, but underneath it all she's hurting.
Beat/Nate is a good guy underneath all that bravado and he's caught up in something and can't see a way out. His inner thoughts slay you. They are brutal in their pain when you throw in the chemistry between the two one word comes to mind --combustible. Even when they argued I laughed cause they are so damn cute together, but don't ever mistake who has all the power.
The writing, the story, the characters, the dialogue come together to make perfection.
