THE PRODIGY SERIES
Smoke and Mirrors
Garrett Casey is living the dream. He’s got purpose and passion. Owner of a wildly profitable graphic design firm in Manhattan, Garrett recently scored the lead role in the forthcoming Broadway production called Prodigy. Edgy, explosive and intense, Prodigy speaks to his affinity for extremes. Days spent meeting the needs of his clients, and evenings consumed with rehearsals, test the limits of his endurance. Garrett’s balance is tipped when a mutual friend introduces him to an enigmatic photojournalist. Little does he realize, but this mystery woman may be his undoing.
Ella Sammons has seen darkness that others can only dream of, so she keeps everyone at arm’s length. No one can hurt her if she doesn’t let them close enough. She learned that lesson the hard way. Is she happy? No, not really. But she’s made peace with being the fortress… until Garrett swings into her orbit. Like a moth to his flame, Ella can’t resist the gravitational pull of Garrett Casey, nor can she force herself to push him away.
Garrett takes a wrecking ball to Ella's defenses, and she lacks the power -or the will- to stop him. As her walls come crumbling down, Ella realizes that she wants them to fall. She needs Garrett close to her. She needs his safety more than the air in her lungs.
But when the secrets of Ella’s past threaten to destroy them, Garrett must face the hard truth that some extremes have blurred edges. And sometimes, you don't know which side you're on until it's too late...
