Sydney has had to transition from teen into adult at a moment's notice, and has managed pretty well, considering she has had no one to turn to or lean on. But she is living in a constant state of fear, always poised to run at the slightest sign of danger. That's why she is slow to make connections, it's a miracle she has lasted as long as she has in Elton. But she loves it there, loves working at the diner for the couple that has taken her in without too many questions. She also has no objection to the almost daily visits from the town's favorite eye-candy - Sheriff Wade Jenkins - even though he turns her into a rambling fool. No, she really doesn't want to have to pack up and go again this wouldn't just break her heart, but her daughter's as well.

Friends since their first encounter at nine years old, Elias and Bray have stayed close. Other than using each other for practise, they never developed into something more, always to scared to risk their friendship. It wasn't until much later, when after a long separation they finally gave in to what had been obvious for so long. 

Enjoying their new status as a couple brings some jealousy to the surface within a group of friends. As a result of a horrible accident on a group camping trip, Bray and Elias decide to take off and leave everything and everyone behind. With only their car and a limited amount of money they hit the road.

She moved in to the apartment above the used bookstore and coffee shop only a short while ago, but Tenley Page is fast becoming familiar with the comings and goings at the tattoo shop across the road. Keeping a low profile after leaving her old life behind, she doesn't venture far from her apartment, only grabbing a coffee or scouring the shelves of the bookstore below, spending the rest of her time keeping an eye on the gorgeous tall inked shop owner across the street, who seems to have taken up a permanent place in her mind.

Every time Hayden Stryker pops across the road for a caffeine fix from the coffee shop, the tattoo artist makes sure to check in on his aunt who owns the adjacent used book store as well. His circle is pretty tight. He lives above his shop, Inked Armor, his coworkers are his friends and his family is across the street. That's why the beautiful girl his aunt just hired part time, stands out to him despite the fact she does all she can to disappear every time he shows up.

Josie is alone in the world. She struggled through a traumatic time in the foster system, after losing her parents. But she can't remember them.....she has amnesia. All she remembers is the abuse that came after. She spends her time drawing and painting, mostly under the guise of darkness, and dulls her pain with drugs and meaningless sex.

When a young Tristan lost his girlfriend years ago, part of him died as well and in the years that followed, he made some choices that haunt him still. Now working as a bartender, keeping mostly to himself, he is hoping to be able to move past that. Until he gets a close look at the girl that has been lurking in the shadows of the bar for weeks now and realizes that his past has just caught up with him.

But any future with Riley must include him dealing his half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he’d rather forget.

As their affair heats up, they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither imagined. But Riley’s past is closer than she cares to remember, and her struggles with Ian’s dominance might just cost her everything.   $0.99   $0.99     77p

Hanging out in one of his clubs with his brother and his girlfriend, Reece Spencer never expected to see the one girl who had burned herself In his guilty memory for over a decade, dancing on his stage. Back then he had been young and still fairly innocent, wanting to distance himself from his bastard of a father, but had ultimately been unsuccessful. Now he had years of playing hard, building an empire and living a life without emotional attachments under his belt, and yet it took only one look at her to break through his shell.

For years after Reece left her, Kennedy Moore struggled with the life she was left to face alone. Finding a love in dance and strength in what she has endured, she single-mindedly pursued her dream of dancing professionally and to that end she was working at the club. One day she hoped to score an audition with a well known dance theatre. Had she known the club belonged to the man who once left her fifteen year old heart in pieces, she would have thought twice.
