I thought I was smart, a seventeen-year-old college sophomore borders on genius. But a viral photo and bullies crushed my trusting and naïve heart.
Then an old gypsy gave me hope and I began to believed love might be possible.
He wormed his way into my heart, unwilling to give up. My friendship with Kohl Black evolved allowing him to break down my walls. But the basketball star and the geek only ends well in a fairy tale. He crushed my heart and showed me everything I believed and trusted was a complete lie.
He was a lie.
I ran, hiding from a world set on my destruction.
Now, I’m back. I’ve returned to the scene of the pain. He let me run once, he won’t let it happen again.
She hides underneath layers of frumpy clothes trying to be invisible but I see the perfection gleaming from the inside, shining like a beacon on the outside.
She’s everything I want, the person I crave.
She’s been defeated by lies and hatred. I will show her she’s so much more. I’ll find a way to make her mine.
I had her. I held everything in my arms.
Deceit ripped her away from me so long ago, now she’s back and I’ll tie her to the bed, if I have to, but I refuse to lose her again.
What she doesn’t remember might be what kills her.
What she doesn’t remember, might be what kills her.
Six months ago Coralyne James was found beaten and clinging to life alongside a desolate country road. Left with a rare form of amnesia, she now struggles through debilitating migraines, and nightmarish visions of a life she can’t recall.
During a routine exam, Coralyne meets Dr. Maxwell Hough who is taking the medical world by storm with his breakthrough neurological treatments. Fascinated by Coralyne’s maladies, Dr. Hough invites her to be a part of a medical trial held at his lab in Valdez, Alaska. Praying three months trapped in the deep snow surrounding Ravyn Manor will hold the key to easing her pain, Coralyne agrees.
For reasons she can’t explain, walking the halls of the manor seems to cause ghostly recollections to claw at the edges of her mind. It’s as if they are leading her to... something. Following their haunting trail, she stumbles onto a series of recordings that reveal a horrifying truth about the respected doctor.
As her blocked memories finally break free, Coralyne is crippled by the fear she’ll never escape the horrors of the Ravyn’s nest.
