At the tender age of 17, Scarlett Rose was the well-known, well-liked and respectable daughter of the only preacher in Carmel, Pastor Joseph and his wife, Lily Horak.
Until then, Scarlett Rose had presented herself with utmost dignity and led her life as a teenager in a proper and orderly fashion, as was expected from her. She by no means at all questioned her father’s strict and commanding rules, while she remained blithe and content to oblige under his authority.
From the moment she met Blade Bannister, it all changed. All she had ever thought was true and correct had altered instantly. She rebelled against her father and her Church. She fearlessly questioned him and his religion. Blade Bannister transported her into a world of excitement, exhilaration and love, while she was keen to surrender entirely to his power over her.
For the first time in her life, she had fallen unreservedly and unconditionally in love with the boy from the wrong side of the tracks whose broken and shattered family had been at war with the Horak’s for centuries before.
