Outcast: Part One
Go, Emma. Stay alive and be safe. I'll make sure they don't come after you, but you must never come back.
Emma has grown up in a secluded compound of women that managed to survive the great disaster that destroyed much of the world. Yet, since birth, she has been regarded as a misfit. An outcast.
Forced to live a life of constant supervision, suppressed emotions, and extra punishments, the only bright spot in her existence is the small taste of freedom she gets during the annual camping trips beyond the compound's imposing gates.
Until one day she learns the Mothers will no longer allow an outcast to live among them. Emma runs to save her life, but the odds are stacked against her.
When all hope seems lost, will the men who find her be her saving grace? Or will the Mother's cautionary tales of dangerous, violent men prove true?
Embraced: Outcast Book 2
I am so scared. Please don't let the others know. You have to promise to take care of me when the others can't.
Winter has arrived, and it is harsher than anything Emma had experienced at the isolated compound of women and girls from where she escaped. However, Emma has found a safe place to stay with the Moore brothers.
As the temperatures drop outside and the nights grow longer, Emma and the brothers settle in to a comfortable routine in their cozy winter cabin. The brothers teach Emma how to read, the joys of Christmas, and to see her quirks, which made her an outcast at the compound, as something to embrace. When the snow begins to thaw and the start of spring draws near, Emma's nightmares bring her greatest fear to the surface: what if the relationship she and her men have begun to build isn't meant to last? Now that they've found a place in her heart, she's not sure she can live without them.
Little does she know, Darcy, Almanzo, Brandon, Harry, and Edward have no intention of letting the young woman who has captured all their hearts slip from their grasp. They intend to prove that Emma can trust and depend on them—always and forever.
When a series of unexpected and seemingly impossible discoveries are made, will Emma be able to trust them? And more importantly, will they be able to trust her?
