THIS RAGING LIGHT meets NOWHERE BUT HERE.
Flare will do whatever it takes to protect her six-year-old brother from their abusive parents. Break a few laws. Flee to a new city. Room with a sexy stranger named Gage. Flare just can’t fall in love, not when she’s on the run.

After waking naked in the middle of Las Vegas, a shadow-shifter fears he’s losing control of his other half: a bloodthirsty silhouette.
