Wesley Draves was a doctor, he was a country club member, and the woman of his dreams just promised him a lifetime together. He never imagined a simple and ever so common mistake would take it all away in an instant. Four years later, he's branded a murderer by some, with the time he's spent paying for that night being really only the tip of the iceberg. Now free, he falls into the world of underground fighting, every day chasing the chance to know the relief that joining her in death would bring. In a surprise attack, he’s finally called to the other side, and he follows willingly until a woman he’s never met begs him to stay and fight for his life. Against all he's wanted for more than four years, he allows the eyes and the voice of this angel to call him back. ~~~~~~~~~~Reanne Lacey lived a simple life. The product of a broken home, she was raised by her grandmother and now owning her own bakery is their dream come true. She has everything a twenty-six-year-old could want, except for love. Her dream required her to put the rest of her life on hold and now dreams of someone to spend it with consume her. Then one night, she's called into the life of a man whom she's never met but will never forget. He begs her to let him go, but she locks her eyes with his and asks him to stay. ~~~~~~~~~~ Fate would save Wes that night, and hand him a second chance he didn’t think he wanted. Now he's running from two pasts, not willing to let either of them ruin his future. But leaving one of those pasts behind won’t be so easy, especially when it refuses to let him go. He’ll be forced to fight again, this time to save her, but it might just cost both of them their lives.
My name is Mareta L. Miller, and I’m a thirty-something-year-old Las Vegas native. Trust me when I say that growing up in Vegas, is not as awesome as it sounds. I’ve never lived in a casino and I’ve never been a stripper or a showgirl, but I have spotted Elvis no less than twice a day, my entire life. I’m just your average wife and mother of ten. Yup, I said ten, consisting of three daughters, a stepson, three puppies (because mine will never be dogs), two kitties, and a turtle.
I wish I could say I don’t have to work outside of my writing, but I do, and rectifying that fact is on the top of my “When I make it Big” list. Working the standard 40hr week, doesn’t leave much time to write, but I take advantage of every minute I have. Late nights and early mornings make for really long days, but I figure I can sleep later.
My writing, which only started a little over a year ago, has become a constant need. It's been my way to deal with fear, but also a way to create hope. Hope that real love exists and can conquer. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment and I love being able to share my stories with all of you. I hope you’ll continue to follow me on this journey because this is only my beginning. Although my wings have begun to flutter, you’ve yet to really see me fly.
