New York Times, USA Today, and International Bestselling series No matter how hard I've tried to let go of Mister Black, the memories of us together torture me. They're an unforgettable reminder of a life I can't have for many reasons. Burying myself in work mostly keeps thoughts of him to a screaming minimum, until he's thrust into my life under circumstances beyond my control. Despite my need for his protection, this time I'm not sure if I'm strong enough to survive with my heart intact. He is Black: a fierce protector and irresistible charmer. I am Red: a trouble magnet and rainbow weaver. Together we ignite. Explosive colors merging at the hottest melting point. NOTE: BLACKEST RED is part 3 in Sebastian and Talia's story in the IN THE SHADOWS series. Their story must be read in the following order: MISTER BLACK (part 1), SCARLETT RED (part 2), and BLACKEST RED (part 3).
