He was supposed to protect me. Instead, he made me fear the dark.
He was supposed to love me. In the end, his love was
sickening, cruel and filled with malice.

Five years ago, the only bright lights in my world were extinguished.
One decision. One text. One sentence and my fragile life shattered.

I never expected the depravity and lies that greets me when
I return to Montecito, leaving me with one goal...
To flee and never look back.

Everything changes when three gorgeous guys crash into my life.
They’re determined to mark me as theirs, and make me
question everything I hold true.

But when the ghosts of my past and future collide, who will be left standing?
Me… or the monster who coveted me for all of the wrong reasons,
turning me into what I am today…

Tarnished.
