Faith ~
Cade Walker is like no man I’ve ever met before. He’s cynical, brooding, mysterious and, most of all, damaged. He’s a man who declares he’s broken, and one who detests the two very things I live for most: God and love. Yet, I’ve still fallen completely in love with him because I also see the good, something that no one else ever has. I see a man who is strong, silent, honorable and beautiful. He’s a man who is now scarred just as badly on the outside of his body as he is on the inside, all because of me. One who endured severe torture in order to save me from what would be the worst thing I will ever experience in my entire life. He is a man I call my dark angel, one who will have my heart until the end of time, even if I can never have his.
Cade ~
At fifteen years old I lost the only person that ever mattered to me, and the day I lost my little sister in the most vile way was the exact moment I stopped living and only existed. That’s until ten years later, when I walked into an open field in Iraq to hear the most incredible voice I would ever hear in my life. One that rooted me to my spot, and ended up belonging to the most beautiful woman in the world. The only woman to ever make me feel something again, something that I thought was dead inside of me. And no matter how badly I wanted to keep her, I knew I couldn’t. Not with what I have lurking inside of me. It’s something I’ve always kept hidden. That is, until the day I unleashed it on the people who dared to hurt her. It was the one thing that gave me the strength to save us, but it was also the one thing that would remind me of why I could never have her.
Now two years later, the one girl I never thought I would ever see again, the one I have spent my days and nights craving like an addict, walks back into my life unexpectedly, giving us both the shock of our lives. And when the time comes that she needs me again, I no longer resist. Before I know it, I’m pulled into a life I thought I could never have, one that scares the shit out of me but it’s one I’m realizing I want. There is just one problem. One very big problem… She lives for the very thing I loathe, and the one thing that killed my sister… God.

Excerpt4
With my vision blurry from tears, I run toward the one place I’ve loved going to since
coming here. The bright morning sun beats down on me, but my body is plagued
with too many emotions to feel any of its warmth. They rush through my veins
and crawl up my throat, trying to suffocate me, as memories from two years ago
play through my head. Good ones, bad ones, they all hit me at once…
The unsuspecting smile of a beautiful but dark man, who captured
my attention. The evenings of singing to him in the sunset. His hands and mouth
exploring my body as I explored his. A man whose eyes held me captive, and made
me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world, as he moved inside of me,
not only claiming my body but also claiming my heart. The same man who’s shown me the only
loving touch I would know for the next two years, and maybe the rest of my
life.
Then come the ugly memories. The ones of rough, unwanted hands
that delivered not only pain to my body, but shame to my soul. Ones that tore
at my clothes, and took what was not offered to them. The sound of a little boy’s screams, as he begged
them to stop, while he was forced to watch me be violated in the worst way.
This is what bitches are for, boy. Fucking, not singing. We will
make a man out of you yet.
A sob of agony rips from my throat and I push myself harder and
faster. The burn of my legs and lungs still not enough to quiet the evil
running through my head.
“Do you still believe in your God, female?” he asks, holding my cross
necklace over my beaten and naked body. When I don’t answer him, he sends
another blow to my already battered face.“ANSWER ME!”
“Yes,” I choke out through the blood that pools in my mouth. The sounds
of a little boy’s broken sobs fill the air, and rip through my already tortured
heart.
“You are a stupid, stupid woman. I will teach you who the real
God is. And before you leave this earth you will call me Allah.”
This disgusting person may have stolen my body and tortured my
soul, but he would not take my faith. Not ever. I stare defiantly into his
malevolent dark eyes, my fear long forgotten. “Over my dead body.”
He responds with a malicious smile, “So be it, bitch.”
Spotting the crystal blue waves in the near distance, I push
myself harder as I race toward the beautiful, deserted beach. As soon as my
feet hit the sand I slow only enough to toe off my running shoes and ankle
socks before rushing into the ice-cold ocean. Once I’m far enough out, I dive
in headfirst and let the fresh water steal my breath and cleanse my soul.
My
lungs begin to burn so much it’s almost unbearable, but it
does the trick. The dirty and ugly memories begin to wash away, but instead of
being replaced with beautiful ones of the man who once held my heart, it holds
the one of a man who was severely tortured and beaten… all because of me. The
same man who saved my life then refused to ever see me again. And the worst part
is, I still don’t know if it’s
because he blames me, or because he can’t
bear to look at me knowing what they did to me.
