Smoke SignalseBook - 2015
Desperation changes a person. Leads them to do things they never would have dreamed. Thanks to his mother, Ray "Razor" Chambers knows what desperation can lead a person to do. But as a defenseman for the Tulsa Thunderbirds, those days are long in the past for both of them. His best buddy is about to get hitched in Vegas when a woman whose eyes are filled with an all-too-familiar haunted look approaches Razor. She makes him a proposition, and he knows he's witnessing yet another act borne of desperation. Viktoriya Dubrovskaya knows all about desperation, too. She came to America to study ballet and escape a fate no one should have to bear. She can never go home again. She's broke and broken, not to mention in survival mode. Viktoriya turned to the only help offered, but in the end it stripped her of everything she was and all she wanted. Now she's out of time, money, and options. . .until she sees Razor. There's no chance he'll take her up on what she's offering, but he suggests a counter-proposal-one involving a ring, a green card, and the chance to reclaim her body. It's an opportunity she can't pass up, but for Viktoriya and Razor, learning to live together as husband and wife is as foreign as interpreting Smoke Signals. And where there's smoke, there's usually fire. CONTENT WARNING: contains graphic and potentially disturbing descriptions of abuse, both physical and sexual.
