From New York Times bestselling author Nikki Turner comes the long awaited sequel to Glamorous Life


Calliope learned at a very early age that if she wanted to survive in this world then she needed to stand on her own.  When she and her younger brother are abandoned by their mother, Calliope steps up to the plate and takes care of them both, but really all she really wants is to feel safe and to have a place that she and her brother can call their own.  But life takes her down paths she never dreamed and danger always seems to be a hairs breadth away.  At her darkest hour, she meets Lynx and her life will never be the same.

Lynx has been released from prison and it should be a fresh start for him and Bambi.  But Lynx has discovered an insatiable appetite, for gambling, that threatens to bring both of them to ruin.  When he meets Calliope, everything takes a dramatic new twist that will leave everyone reeling.
