Unmasked Dreams

She was never supposed to be mine.

A daring and decadent romantic suspense that whirls the reader around the globe and back.

Dawson Langley is living three separate lives and hiding secrets from those he loves most. Returning to New London and discovering Violet Banner managing the bed and breakfast he calls home isn’t just a problem, it’s a catastrophe because she’s the only person who’s ever seen right through him.

When Violet first met Dawson, he was a guilt-ridden boy who branded her heart without ever touching her. Five years later, she thinks she’s finally moved on, but one torturous skim of a hand proves nothing has changed. Except for the lab she’s built in the garage and the shadows lurking around him.

As the clandestine activity tangled with his boat race starts to unravel, Dawson is determined to keep Violet out of harm's way. But everything changes when she stumbles upon the truth and unknowingly turns the storm that’s coming in her direction. 

There’s only one thing left to do―give in―and hope they can survive the swells together.

Inspired by Daughtry’s “What About Now,” comes a determined scientist and a broody bad-boy-turned-hero who just might leave their mark on you in this adventurous, standalone, slow burn from award-winning author, LJ Evans.
