I live in a world where my tragedy is branded on my back in the shape of whips and lashes. Every night, I ponder my fate and wish for death. Until I escape. I may have escaped the devil, but hell lives inside my head. The secrets I know could ruin the most powerful men. Including the gorgeous man who saves me. As we grow closer, I realize that we share the same wounds. When I find out who his family is, I realize that I may as well have held the branding iron that scarred his back. Leovino Luca may have saved me. But he doesn’t know that he welcomed his downfall into his own home. They say freedom comes with a price. But why is my savior paying that price?
