Booker Ward is known by many names. Assassin. Freak. The Tattooed Man. He’d give up on life itself until she walked into his life. Now, he’s realizing there may be a future for him yet, if only he can figure out a way to convince her to love a monster.
Irene Evans has only known sin. As the daughter of a pastor, she shouldn’t be able to see the souls of the dead. Her father sees her as possessed, and calls in an expert on exorcism. When she sees a chance to escape, she flees to a nearby circus where her life is turned upside down.
Freedom tastes sweet. She learns from this dangerous man two things.
First, that her life is her own. If she wishes to become a circus act, then she can and he will help her.
Second, that love is freedom and it can overcome all things.
