Promise Me Forever

An In Plain Sight Prequel
The Prodigal Daughter Book 1

A Dark Billionaire Romance

Absence doesn’t make the heart grow fonder.
It only fills it with resentment and regret.

Nineteen years ago, I lost the love of my life for four dangerous reasons.
Power. Control. Money. Love.
These forces don’t just break hearts; they shatter lives, and mine was no exception.
Left irreparably scarred, I vowed never to be vulnerable again.
I fortified my defective heart against heartbreak while channeling my energy into amassing an abundance of power, mastering control, and accumulating wealth.
It’s a treacherous illusion, a game for fools; something I’ve become far too cynical to truly let it in.
That, and time doesn’t heal all wounds. Far from it.
What I am is defective and proud. Having embraced my flaws, I wear my scars and cynicism defiantly, determined to live my life on my own terms — the best revenge to strive for.
Until an unconventional proposition slithers into my world, a dangerous and ill-timed offer in a treacherous game, but one impossible to ignore.
Turning it down was the most gut-wrenching decision I ever had to make, but I did so anyway — for her.
For the woman my defective heart still beats for.
And the tsunami that shreds everything in its path, including the fragile threads holding my barely stitched-together heart.
