Praise for SHEPARD:
" ... I love this author I have read three of her series and couldn't put them down..." - SHCH
"... The book is terribly, beautifully dark, the prose is strong and wistful. It's about love denied but triumphant, dark men who can love, strong women who survive, and all the dangerous and tender passion they can share in those scenes that really melt the core..." - Babel
" ... It [Shepard] was beautifully and painfully written, and another masterpiece by Marata Eros. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next..." - Dawn Yacovetta
An anti-hero. A dark journey. A happily-ever-after. Can anyone have it all?
Who is Shepard?
Léo Dubois is a Handler. A Handler of Women. Himself--and the right hand man serving the king of the French mob. When Shepard gifts his wife the divorce she deserves, setting her free from abuse, Shepard begins a fresh start in a new land.
A year later, what he gets are pursuers who wish to recruit him for a role he never wants to fill again. Marissa is a new acquisition who falls prey to the long reach of la famille, and Shepard makes choices that endanger them both, though they are the right ones.
Can Shepard shed the sins of his past, and find love with a woman as abused as he? Can they find love with each other, though neither have been loved before?
