Long Lost by Cora Brent
We should have been enemies from the beginning.
But we were children when we met and children tend to ignore such rules.
Even if the rules exist for a reason.
Because Jonathan came from a family of savage killers.
While I was born into the broken aftermath of their victims.
For one short season we were inseparable.
All it took was one terrible day to turn us into strangers.
I’ve spent a long time chasing him from my mind.
And I assumed he was gone forever.
Until he shows up here.
So far from where we started and so changed from the friend I once knew.
The gentle boy I loved has grown into a volatile man with dangerous secrets and a different name.
He won’t admit to who he is.
Or where he comes form.
Or who we are to each other.
And I knew I shouldn’t have provoked him.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched him.
Most of all I knew I shouldn’t have offered him my heart.
Yes, Jonathan and I were born to be enemies.
And maybe that’s how our story will end after all…
