I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.

His name is Michael Crist.

My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.

But I noticed him.

I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid...For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.

Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.
Because he’s finally noticed me.


Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.

My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.

Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.
In my city.

The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.

We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

Guest Post:

  • When asked Penelope Douglas what were the Top 5 things that make her fall in love with a book, these where her answers:

5. Sexual tension—I love intimacy scenes, but if the build-up isn’t there, I’m bored.

4. Jerk Hero—he doesn’t have to be a jerk, but it certainly helps me stay interested.

3. First Person—I’ve read and liked 3rd person, but I feel the characters more in 1st.

2. Young Characters—again, I’ve read and loved characters of all ages, but for some reason, I’m more drawn to high school and college age romances.

1. Dark Pasts—I’m instantly sympathetic to any character that had a rough time in their life.
