When the bottom finally falls out of Tressa Torrado's life and she's given an eviction notice for her one-bedroom walk-up, she lands at the first place that'll have her--and the last place she'd expect to find herself.

Father Bastien Castaneda is trained to heal the wounded of his flock, his warrior strength and mysterious moral fortitude as intoxicating as any superpower. Soon they're working side by side together--chemistry simmering to a boiling point as two desperate hearts find the will to live again while forbidden love lights like lighter fluid in their hearts.

But it isn't long before secrets so explosive come to light it torches the very foundations of their belief, and only time will tell if theirs is a love strong enough to survive the inevitable fall.

Sample text:

She was quiet, but I heard her slow steady breaths. I narrowed my eyes, peering through the filigree of the confessional window separating us, the soft curve of a cheekbone, a lock of hair, the scent of something floral and soft clinging to her flesh.
I imagined she was beautiful, I didn't need to see her to feel it. It was in the way she moved so gracefully, even when she didn't think anyone could see.

And then I chastised myself instantly--I couldn't see her, and nor should I be trying.
I cleared my throat and tore my eyes away from the deceiving shadow playing tricks with my vision, leaning away to free the chains her sweet scent had locked me in.
"Perhaps if you relieve the burden of shame you carry you'll see the future through bright eyes." She didn't reply to my gentle encouragement, and so I continued. "Most of the confessions I hear start with 'Forgive me Father for I have sinned...'"

She was quiet still, only the soft sound of fabric ghosting together in quiet song on my ears--all of my senses hyper aware since she'd sank herself inside my confessional only moments ago. I'd never ben so drawn to a stranger before--and certainly not someone in my confessional. 

"This isn't my first time confessing," she said, "this little box used to make me feel home." I caught a glimpse of her shadowed fingers trailing down the iron gates of the screen that separated us, it's presence suddenly feeling more like a cage that kept two people apart than ever before.

"So you've found yourself in my confessional to...sit?"

The soft lilt of her chuckle sent a thrill of adrenaline down my spine.

"I suppose so."
