spiraling and it was up to me to reel her in. I could’ve lost it all in a
heartbeat, but it would’ve been worth it if it meant she was safe. Calculated
to the end, I had an iron clad plan to protect her. I just never imagined it
wouldn’t be enough.
The ghosts of
my past were no longer trapped in my nightmares. They were real and they walked
among us, waging war on all that I held dear. How could we win the battle when
we had nothing left to fight for?
Two damaged souls. Too many mistakes. One future in jeopardy…
Run To You
I moved to New York for a fresh
start. I did not move here to fall for a
man like Sebastian.
Sebastian Black came into my life like a
storm in the peak of the night…dark, raging, all-consuming, and guaranteed to
leave destruction in his wake. From the moment our eyes met, he had a hold on
me. I wanted, craved, and needed him like nothing I had ever desired before.
The problem was he needed total
submission. From the moment he handed me the contract, I knew what he was
proposing would destroy me. What I had not planned was his ability to make me
crave destruction. I would lose myself in him. Sebastian knew how to take me
over the edge, and before I even knew it, I wanted to go freefalling.
It was evident that my past had the
ability to destroy us. What I had not calculated was the power of his to do the
same. My dark, brooding, impeccably sexual, alpha-male had his own crosses to
bear. I was not sure I was strong enough to handle them, or the woman who
helped chain him there.
Run From You
Sebastian called me his princess, but he
was far from my white knight. He was my drug. One hit and I was addicted to
I ran from him to save my life. I kept running to regain my sanity. Kyle would
help me with that. His warmth and familiarity were just what I needed to
get back on track. Beautiful in his own right, Kyle was everything I once knew
to be good about the world. Kyle was perfect for me, he always had been.
Except he wasn’t Sebastian, he could never be. The horrors of my past pulled me
away from him. The nightmares of my present would bring us back together.
Confused though I was, I knew Sebastian was the only choice. The damage done
was great, our love greater. Surviving each other would take everything we had,
but it was the only option.
Every mistake we had made would collapse on top of us, burying us alive in a
mountain of anger and guilt. Neither of us could have prepared for what was
coming. The only way out was through. The question became, would we be strong
enough to make it through together or would our secrets tear us apart once more?
…a serial lover of all things pink,
self-proclaimed chocoholic, home-schooling mother, and wannabe yogi.
Her debut erotica novel, Run to You, the
first in the series Run, is coming soon.
Kandi’s love of storytelling can be
traced back to her fourth grade year, when a history lesson on Native Americans
became too unimaginative for her liking. She took it upon herself to
liven things up by creating a story that was based on half-truths about a
self-named Indian Princess. Kandice is in fact of Native American heritage (her
great-grandmother was a full-blooded Cherokee) and in her own mind a princess,
so you can see where her inspiration came from. Her story was a huge hit
with friends, and an author was born.
Kandice was born and raised in rural
Arkansas, where she currently lives with her husband and three children.
Though, if you ask her she’ll confirm that her soul is lost somewhere on the
west coast waiting for the day that her body can rejoin it.
