Adriana Monroe had her life planned out. She was going to marry Alex, have a house full of kids, and spend as much time as possible with their friends. But, life had other plans. Life stole Alex from her and Adriana grieved his loss so badly, when she had the chance to love again with Tucker Stavros, she couldn’t do it. She was broken and felt her love for Alex would break Tucker, too. So, she walked away.
Now, her heart is shattered and she’s mourning the loss of both men.

His relationships have been disasters. He’s never felt that spark… until he met Adriana Monroe. Everything changed for him the second he saw her smile. He didn’t care that she was grieving.

Just when he thought they were becoming something special, she walked out of his life, crushing his heart.
Now, he’s alone, afraid he’ll never find anyone that makes him feel the way he felt for her.

BENEATH HIS DARKNESS
HEALING HEARTS SERIES BOOK 3
FEBRUARY 23, 2015
If I could describe my world in a color, it would be black.
My heart is black. My mind is black. Everything is black.
I let darkness take over when I was sixteen. That’s when my world fell apart. That’s when I learned Tucker Stavros took my life away from me. I’ve spent years allowing the darkness to comfort me; letting it take my emotions and box them up. Why do I need emotions anyway? They only make me weak. I need to be strong for what needs to be done.
What needs to be done, you ask?
That’s simple. Destroy Tucker. Bring him to his knees. Show him how it feels to lose everything.
Well, that was the plan, until Cammie Richards walked into my life. Now there are gray areas — slight color bleeding through the black. What happens when she looks beneath my darkness and sees the monster lurking there? Will she run away or try to save me?
How do I tell her I can’t be saved?
From a young age Renee Dyer had a love of writing, starting with a doodle pad at age four that soon turned into journals and later computer documents. Poetry became short stories and short stories became a novel. Although she's surrounded by males all day having three sons, a husband and a hyperactive chocolate lab, she still finds time to be all woman when she escapes into the fantasy of reading and writing romance. That is, until she needs male perspective and garners eye rolling from her husband. She's a true New Englander. You'll find her screaming profanity at her TV while the Pats play and cuddling under blankets during the cold seasons (which is most of them) reading a good book. To her snow is not a reason to shut things down, only a reason to slow down and admire the beauty. Ask her questions and she'll answer them. She's an open book, pun fully intended.
