Sometimes getting to heaven requires a trip through hell.Beautiful Girl

Twelve years ago, it looked like Del Prescott had it all. The wealthy family, the car, the looks and charm, and the perfect boyfriend. Then, mysteriously, she disappeared to “study abroad.” Now she’s back, and it’s not merely to attend a high school reunion. She’s here to face her demons—and Blake, the man she has never stopped loving.

Blake Mitchell is a changed man, thanks to surviving twelve long years of difficulties that began after Del dropped out of his life. Now she’s back, and she’s nothing like the polished, stylish world traveler he imagined she’d be. There’s a darkness about her, and a grim expression in her eyes that says she’s prepared for fight or flight.

Blake’s concern for her breaks down the walls Del has built around her heart and she finally begins to heal from the abuse she suffered at the hands of her own family. But the betrayal goes deeper than either of them ever imagined—and it’s about to come back to haunt them.

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language and violence.

I’ll be honest links to the ARC reviews as I get them. If you pick up the story, please let me know what you think!

And… *G* since I promised a prize, and because I’m a rotten brat, I’m going to draw a couple of winners without exactly announcing I was doing a contest… because I do so love spontaneous participation.

I went through the comments from the past couple of weeks and selected two of the commenters to win a free download of the book…and the names drawn were Jackie L. and Azteclady.

Ladies, if you could email me @, I’ll get in touch with you about your prize.

Also edited it add review links…
