From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Vixen and the Vet comes an unforgettable story about loss, redemption, and the healing power of love. My name is Cassidy Porter . . . My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was convicted twenty years ago for the brutal murder of a dozen innocent girls. Though I was only eight years old at the time, I am aware—every day of my life—that I am his child, his only son. To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity. I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known. It's a promise I would have kept . . . if Brynn Cadogan hadn't stumbled into my life. Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain . . . Unloved. Contains mature themes.
