I live my life on the edge,
Away from the demons of my past,
and even further away from love.
Love is selective; it is for those who are whole,
not the riven,
not me.

But then I was hired to protect her, and everything changed.

Eliana came barreling into my world like a hurricane,
threatening to unravel everything I've tried so hard to protect,
my choices,
my judgment,
and most of all, my heart.

But the past has a way of creeping up when we least expect it,
and I don't know if either of us can survive it.
