Marked (Shadows in the Dark #1) by Charisse Spiers
Welcome to my fucking world. My name is Kaston Cox and I’m a
criminal’s worst nightmare. Most people run from darkness, but I live
in it, require it, and thrive in the night. Some call me a monster, some
a lover of evil, and others, the devil himself, but they’re all wrong. I’m
just a shadow in the dark. I speak for the innocent when no one else
will. Once I have marked you, you better beg for forgiveness, because
your time has run out…
Revenge is the ultimate wage for evil. Some just can’t stomach to do it
themselves. That’s where I come in. I am the ultimate judge when
called upon for justice. I will decide who lives and who dies. Blood
may be on my hands, but it’s not the blood of the innocent. Remorse
is nowhere to be found. I don’t give a shit if you understand. I can live
with the man I look at every day in the mirror. My soul was tainted
the day I was conceived. You think you know me? You have no
fucking idea. I am who I am because of what they did to her, and to
him. They were my family. This was the only form of restitution he
believed in. I owed him everything. I took over the empire he built.
This is how I repay him. There was only one rule: never allow
emotions to form. Numb and heartless are the only two ways to live.
What I never included in the plan…was her.
My name is Lux Larsen. My life is as perfect as it can get. I’m a
partier, a seductress when it comes to something that I want, and the
ultimate sexual con artist. I use my body to get what I want and I’m
not ashamed. Designer tags are what I’m after. I love sex. I’m good at
it. Fuck double standards. Guys can do it, well guess what, so can I. I
will never be caught back on the other side of the tracks for as long as
I live. I left that hellhole years ago. I’ll do anything to stay away. You
can call me a whore if you want, but I just look at it as I’ve decided to
become a player in a man’s game, and I’m a fucking pro at it. Love is
for the weak minded. Weak is something I’ll never be.
I never anticipated the predator that would find me. I’m now his
prey…but I’m not sure I can run.
The world likes to think that love is only pure, only for those that do
good, but what no one considers is when bad has to be done to
formulate a different type of good. Two of the most random people
can be a perfect match, being placed together like pieces to a puzzle.
Being in the wrong place at the right time can be terrifying and it can
also be exactly what is supposed to happen, because sometimes…love
is born in the dark.
