Sweet Possession

I had a chance, once, to play the good girl. I could’ve kept my mouth shut and stayed out of the line of fire. Had I done that, more people might’ve been hurt. So, I came forward and subsequently, I lost everything I’d ever loved. 

I lost my family. 
I lost my home.
I lost my identity. 
I lost … them. 

But now they’re back. At least, I think they are. I can feel their eyes watching my every movement, stalking me. They aren’t here to threaten me or to hurt me. They’re here to protect me. To watch over me. Because to them, I’m everything they desire. 

I am their love.
I am their hate.
I am their infatuation. 
Their sweet possession. 

How long can they stand to stay in the shadows when a new danger threatens to tear us apart again?

Scarlett Thief

Three pasts. Three criminals. One night to steal it all.

I’m known as the Scarlett Thief. Truly fitting since Scarlett is my name. No one has seen me or ever even gotten close. It’s not bragging, I’m just that good. If I see something and I want it, the fact is, come hell or high thievery, it will be mine. 

There’s just one rule: I work alone. A team comes with complications—dangerous complications that can get a girl killed or, even worse, caught. 

When a mysterious billionaire known as Mr. Black not only gets close enough to catch me but leaves me an intriguing message offering me the chance of a lifetime, what’s a world-renowned criminal to do? Track the man down and kill him, of course. Only, instead of Mr. Black, I find two other criminals —a hacker and a mercenary—who are gunning for the mysterious man in the shadows who seems to know everything about us. 

The only way to keep our secrets from ever seeing the light of day is to pull off the biggest heist the world’s ever seen. If we fail, we lose everything, but if we succeed … we could go down in history.
