Meet Mark Donovan.
CEO of a multi-billion dollar global empire.
Chiseled to the nth degree.
And a man I want nothing to do with.
I know the type.
A bad-boy who fills out a Tom Ford suit or pair of Calvin’s in equally drool-worthy ways.
At his core,
The worst kind of heart-breaker.
The kind who doesn’t even know he did it.
Eight years ago I nearly died.
And it wasn’t that I didn’t remember her.
I didn’t recognize her. There’s a difference.
She was a kid.
And I was a soldier…
Two seconds from deploying with her brother for our third, and final, tour.
One I wasn’t sure I’d be coming back from.
She thinks I don’t remember.
That kiss was beautiful. Innocent.
It kept me alive when I thought it might be my last.
How could I ever forget?
I came back broken. Heartless. Ruthless.
I grew rich beyond my wildest dreams by burying the best parts of myself.
Who I was. What I’d been through.
Killing away all the pieces of me that mattered…everything except that kiss.
So, shove me off all you want, country girl.
Because you’ve just landed in my sights,
And you’re about to be mine.
MARKED is a stand-alone second-chance, military/billionaire romance. This story takes place before The Alex Drake Series and unfolds into the Alex Drake world.
