Her family consists of her four brothers, her father, and her group of wild friends. Aideen is protective of her family, there is not a lot she wouldn’t do to keep them safe.
Kane Slater is a tortured soul. Literally. He is misunderstood by people, even feared by them thanks to the scars that mar his face and body. He relishes in their fear because people who fear you, won’t want to know you. He likes his circle limited to his brothers and their girlfriends, but a thorn from an Irish rose is dug deep into Kane’s side, and her name is Aideen Collins.
Aideen and Kane don’t get along… at all. Aideen is the only woman who stands up to Kane and throws his bullshit back at him without fear of hurting him. Kane is the only man who can see right through Aideen’s tough exterior. He knows her deepest, and darkest secrets. They can’t stand each other, but they want each other. Badly. They hide their need behind arguments, and banter, but when Kane drops his guard for all to see, and succumbs to an illness within his body, it’s Aideen who steps up to the plate to take care of him.
An illness is the least of their worries when a devil from Kane’s past comes back to play with him. Everybody in Kane’s life is threatened, and with his body fighting against him, he doesn’t know if the luck of the Irish is enough to keep his family safe and his demons at bay.
Kane needs Aideen, and what Kane needs, Kane takes.
“Hey,” Kane murmured, “what’s that face for?”“I don’t like how she looked at you,” I replied lowly to him.
“What way did she look at me?” he asked.
I set my jaw. “Like she was frightened.”
Kane sighed, “I get that a lot, darling. I don’t blame her though—I do look scary.”
Hearing him say that made me really mad.
“No. You. Don’t,” I hissed. “You look perfectly fuckin’ fine, and fuck anyone who thinks differently.”
Kane grabbed hold of my arm and brought us to a stop. He rounded on me and looked down at my face. “Babydoll.”
I shook my head. “I’m fine. I… I just don’t like people thinkin’ you’re somethin’ to fear. You aren’t. They don’t know you like I do.”
Kane smiled at me. “Have I ever told you how amazing you are?”
I flushed. “No, but it’d be nice to hear it often.”
