(FOLKESTONE SINS BOOK 1)
Poe Halliday was an accident, a chance meeting that could change my life forever.
Growing up, my mother didn’t have secrets—her secrets had her. And after she disappeared, I had nothing.
Or so I thought.
When the invitation arrived, the opportunity to learn more about my mother’s past was too tempting to ignore. Heading west to meet a long-lost aunt was a risk, but the need for answers outweighed my hesitation. Losing my heart was never part of the plan. Poe broke down my walls, made me vulnerable, and now the dark history of this town threatens to tear me apart.
Stella Bradleigh was a distraction, one who didn’t recognize my name.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been groomed for a future I don’t want. And death is the only way out.
Or so I’ve been taught.
When Stella showed up out of the blue, none of us knew what it meant. Beautiful, with a mysterious past and a snarky attitude, I figured she’d be fast, fun, and disposable. Instead, she consumed me, opened my eyes to the evil that festers here, and now I’m left questioning everything about my family’s legacy.

Poe Halliday could have been my everything, the one who taught me to dream again.
But a single night ended it all, and it was over as quickly as it began. The hope blooming in my heart poisoned by a dark truth spit from cruel and twisted lips.
A truth that stole my innocence.
My beginnings were stained by the ashy fingerprints of my mother’s demons—I refuse to let them ruin anything else. Terrifying shadows may haunt the town that holds our history, but my heart longs for him. I’m stronger than they know, and the only way I can escape this nightmare is to face it.
Stella Bradleigh shone like the brightest star, keeping my shadows at bay with only her smile.
I’ve been unknowingly living with the devil incarnate. The architect of a horrific scheme kept secret for too long.
A secret that made her run.
When she left, my world turned cold again. After basking in her warmth, I refuse to let it end this way. From the day she arrived, I knew my heart belonged with hers, and she became a part of me. The darkness here is no match for the rage I harbor, and the only way I can protect her is to destroy it.

Payne Emerson is the boy I grew up with, the keeper of all my secrets.

When my brother died, grief threatened to swallow me whole. Devastated and lost, I stumbled down a dangerous path. They punished me for my sins and sent me away for strangers to deal with.

Terrified it will burn through the walls that shelter my bruised and restless heart.
Sunday Easton is the first girl I ever kissed, the one who has my heart.
I thought we were perfect until her world collapsed and I lost her.
After her brother’s death, the silent screams that echoed in her eyes broke my heart. I held tight to her cold hand in the dark, trying to be an anchor in the perfect storm of her misery. When they sent her away, I knew things could never be the same. Now, the girl I’ve always loved is back and ignoring the flame that still burns between us. But I’m the only one who truly sees her and I’m done pretending.
(FOLKESTONE SINS BOOK 4)
Payne Emerson broke my heart. Now he’s bleeding for my mistake.
I’d love to hate him for the awful stunt he pulled.
But what happened afterward, on that dark and lonely stretch of road, is all my fault. No matter how badly he hurt me, my choice cost him so much more. He never would have been out there if I hadn’t run.
Sunday Easton saw me at my worst. Now she’ll never forgive me.
I’d love to erase everything she witnessed.
But what happened afterward, when the shadows came for me, isn’t her fault. Sometimes in ruin, we find our truth; all I can do is hope she believes mine. She never would have run if she hadn’t caught me with my pants down.
(FOLKESTONE SINS BOOK 5)
A single kiss, a deadly mistake, and a shocking secret that might be the only thing that can save us all.
Gorgeous, ridiculously wealthy, and too smart for my own good—that's how people describe me. To the outside world, I'm the total package. Girls want me, and guys want to be me.
If they only knew the truth.
Like a fancy hood ornament on an expensive car, the sole purpose of my existence has been to increase my parents' status. As long as I go to the college they choose, only date girls they approve of, and don't embarrass them, they completely ignore me. To them I'm not a person, I'm an accessory. Over the years I learned to play my part without complaint, believing my future was already written.
Until I met her.
Beautiful and driven, the girl my parents would definitely deem unacceptable wants nothing to do with me and I have no idea why. I'm used to getting what I want, and I want her. In this game of wills, she's already lost.
She just doesn't know it yet.
