A tragic past threatens to destroy a passionate future in this dangerously sexy new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Wicked for You.
After a violent tragedy nearly destroyed her, Lily Taylor ran away, changed her name, and started over. When her deadly nemesis resurfaces to eliminate his loose end, she turns to the last man she should trust—a stranger with a history of violence and an intoxicating sexuality she can’t refuse…
Though strong-armed into locating Lily to help put away a drug lord, ex-con Stone Sutter isn’t anyone’s snitch. When he finds the terrified beauty, he vows to keep her safe—but he isn’t sure he has the strength to shield her from his own desires.
As an unquenchable fire sparks between them, Lily’s tormentor stalks ever closer, and she must overcome her darkest fear to survive. Can she trust the bond she and Stone have formed as they’re falling in deeper?

What makes this book different than the others in the series?
I’ve written a lot of guys on the right side of the law—Bodyguards, a detective, a PI, two SEALs, an FBI agent… Even a celebrity chef, a couple of billionaires, and a rock star. Stone is sexier than hell, like all Wicked Lovers heroes, but he’s coming from the wrong side of the law. He’s still atoning for his sins. In this book, he’s presented a chance to commute his sentence, but that comes with some morally difficult choices that might once have been easy …before he met Lily.
Sweet Pea/Misty (aka Lily) isn’t my first heroine on the run. She’s certainly not the first one with a dangerous past. But she’s arguably endured more danger, heartbreak, and tragedy than any other. The growth of this woman’s quiet strength during the book led to a fearsome (and one of my favorite) final bad-guy battle scenes. The plot she foils is epic.
With two such scarred people, I couldn’t sugarcoat Falling in Deeper. Stone and Lily’s story is intense and tragic. Ultimately, though, it’s a story of redemption and forgiveness. Their difficult fight to reach happily ever after often made me gasp, protest, and cry—sometimes at once.
