The worst secrets are the ones you can never tell.

I've become an expert at hiding bruises.

One horrible night, things go too far, and Embry insists on sending her cousin to help.
A wild, inked, bad boy and member of a notorious biker club.
I didn't count on him riding to my house with two of his MC brothers.
The three overbearing, possessive outlaws won't take no for an answer when I refuse.

Slash, Embry's cousin and my secret crush. I never told him how I felt. He's a reckless, dangerous, brooding giant who growls every word. He's rumored to have earned his road name through his ruthless skill with a blade.

Gunner, the trio's older, more experienced alpha, insists on keeping his distance and barking orders. But the look in those stormy gray eyes betrays his struggle, especially when they flash with heat and raze my body with their smolder.

And then there's Havoc, a pierced, tattooed playboy with lean muscle and coiled strength. He's left a mile-long line of broken hearts in his wake. But when his dark eyes focus on me, I swear he's plotting how to maim everyone who's ever hurt me.

The three bikers swear to keep me safe.
They won't rest until the threat against me is eliminated.
But they didn't know what they'd dig up. Lies, corruption, and a trafficking ring are only the beginning.
My father's debts and horrifying choices reveal truths I can't escape.

Synopsis: Forbidden magic. Secret romance. Dangerous alliances. Enter the world of New York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer's electrifying series.

When nineteen-year-old Tycho, the King's Courier, arrives in the remote village of Briarlock, he hopes to escape the demands of his new life in the royal court, where magic reigns for the first time in ages. He doesn't expect to fall for a handsome blacksmith with a bruised heart.

After years of cruelty in his father's forge, Jax never dared to dream of a better life -- until a magic-wielding young lord shows him an enticing alternative. But when rumors of a rebellion reach Briarlock, Jax wonders who he can trust -- and if he'll even survive.

Jax's best friend, Callyn, doesn't trust anyone -- especially not a handsome stranger with magic, which killed her parents years ago. When another royal emissary arrives, seeing a co-conspirator, Callyn finds herself embroiled in a plot that could lead them all to ruin. . .

As tensions flare throughout the kingdom, it won't be long before everyone must choose a side.

War is brewing. Passions are building. And magic may doom -- or save -- them all . . .
