Cad e Walker is like no man I’ve ever met before. He’s cynical, brooding, mysterious and, most of all, damaged. He’s a man who declares he’s broken, and one who de tests the two very things I live for most: God and love. Yet, I’ve still fallen completely in love with him because I also see the good, something that no one else ever has. I see a man who is strong, silent, honorable and beautiful. He’ s a man who is now scarred just as badly on the outside of his body as he is o n the inside, all because of me. One who endured severe torture in order to save me from what would be the worst thing I will ever experience in my entire lif e. He is a man I call my dark angel, one who will have my heart until the en d of time, even if I
can never have his.
At fifteen years old I lost the only person that ever mattered to me, and the day I lost my little sister in the most vile way was the exact moment I stopped li ving and only existed. That’s until ten years later, when I walked into an open field in Iraq to hear the most incredible voice I would ever hear in my l ife. One that rooted me to my spot, and ended up belonging to the most beautif ul woman in the world. The only woman to ever make me feel something again, so mething that I thought was dead inside of me. And no matter how badly I wanted to keep her, I knew I couldn’t. Not with what I have lurking inside of me . It’s something I’ve always kept hidden. That is, until the day I unleashed it on the people who dared to hurt her. It was the one thing that gave me the str ength to save us, but it was also the one thing that would remind me of why I co uld never have her.
Now two years later, the one girl I never thought I would ever see again, the one I have spent my days and nights craving like an addict, walks back into my life unexpectedly, giving us both the shock of our lives. And when the time comes that she need s me again, I no longer resist. Before I know it, I’m pulled into a life I thought I could never have, one that scares the shit out of me but it’s one I’m realizing I want. There is just one problem. One very big problem... She lives f or the very thing I loathe, and the one thing that killed my sister... God.

s screams, as he begged them to stop, while he was forced to watch me be violated in the worst way.
This is what bitches are for, boy. Fucking, not singing. We will make a man out of you yet.
“Yes,” I choke out through the blood that pools in my mouth. The sounds of a little boy’s broken sobs fill the air, and rip through my already tortured heart.
“You are a stupid, stupid woman. I will teach you who the real God is. And before you leave this earth you will call me Allah.”
This disgusting person may have stolen my body and tortured my soul , but he would not take my faith. Not ever. I stare defiantly into his malevolent dark eyes, my fear long forgotten. “Over my dead body.”
He responds with a malicious smile, “So be it, bitch.”
