LITTLE DOLL #1
One look and I became his.
One look and I didn’t even think to run.
Just one look, and Juan Florez had found his golden ticket.
On the wrong side of town in a drug fueled heartland, I went in search of my younger brother, Ethan. What I would find was something belonging to nightmares. What I would lose would unknowingly become my fight for survival. An escape from the clutches of evil seemed almost an impossible task. Warring with Mexico’s leading cartel would only see me closer to my grave. Or worse, used as a bargaining chip to seal a sickening deal my brother had played a part in. But then there was one man who ruled over me. A man who promised to destroy my world at every turn.
Taking on the notorious cartel son was a battle I was bound to lose.
CRIMSON DESERT #2
To hunt or to be hunted?
When you escape Mexico’s leading cartel, expect retribution.
When you escape from Juan Florez, a man who lives for the thrill of the chase, expect to run from the shadows that follow your every move.
I was “his”.
He craved and demanded my fear. He destroyed me in every way he enjoyed. It was power. Seduction.
I could run.
I could hide.
But for how long?
He had one objective and that was to reclaim his prize, even if it meant putting to rest the one man who stood in his way. Aiden. His brother. When yesterday I had nothing to lose and today I have everything to keep, can I trust the very man whose family of monsters is now chasing me?
LAUGHING EYES #3
Monsters…. They are real.
They watch you from their safe place, taunting, knowing. They breathe down your neck and chase you in your dreams. You wake, but they are still there.
Saving everyone was impossible. The destruction, heartbreaking.
One man was to blame. Anna knew he was there. His eyes following her every move, his presence beckoning a fate she needed to escape. This was a war where good never stood a chance. Danny knew he was a target, trapped in a place that would bring him to his knees, survival holding no promises.
How do you win a battle that was lost from the very beginning? Monsters… They will destroy you.
He smiles. Winks. Eyes glistening an evilness known to no other.
And then… I lose everything. It takes a heartbeat. A silent promise. A guarantee that it’s all only just the beginning.
Everyone has a story. Mine is one I don’t want to remember. Deceived by those closest to me, I was thrown deep into a world of violence, corruption and trafficking. The dark, sinister world belonging to one Hector Florez, Mexico’s leading cartel boss. What he wants is control. What I crave is freedom. They say everyone has an angel watching over them, protecting.
I had my very own demon.
