(A House of Misfits Standalone)
Publication date: September 18th 2020

Once upon a time…
There is a girl with skin as fair as ivory and hair as black as night.
She was the apple of her father’s eye, but now that he has died,
someone wants to dip that apple into poison.
Advised to flee, Ivory escapes her elite world in New York City
and stumbles into a place she didn’t know existed.
A modern-day princess, afraid and lost on the dark streets, running for her life.
Ivory White has no one to call, nowhere to turn.
All she has is a random number scrawled on a torn napkin.
She calls. He answers.
Ivory is thrust into a house filled with misfits—
a band of completely untrustworthy men.
But can this group of men keep her safe?
She looked like someone who’d just stepped out of a storybook. Nothing about her belonged here in my world.
Even though her clothes were casual, they were far too upscale for this place. The fabric was delicate and soft just like her limbs and the way she walked. Her round blue eyes scoured every inch of the place as though she had never been anywhere like this before.
And the hood. The royal-blue hood pulled up over her head was like a cloak, shrouding her in mystery and concealing so much more than just her features.
When I finally got a glimpse of her creamy white skin, I had to force myself not to react. She didn’t look like anyone from my world either. Not her heart-shaped face, perfectly formed chin, or red-rose lips formed in a bow. A few strands of hair so dark lay against her cheek, and I could only think of black velvet.
That mouth, though. The standoffish, almost haughty way she looked at me, it didn’t really match. Like the storybook she stepped out of had a beautiful cover and artwork, but the interior words were aggressive and messy.
It became more and more apparent the longer I sat beside her. She felt backed into a corner, into this bar, which was clearly out of her comfort zone. I understood that. I could even make allowances for her aloof, unfriendly behavior.
I was interested. Definitely intrigued.
