Deep in the humid Mississippi bayou, a half-wild child is dragged from the murky waters. She has no memories, no family and is covered in mysterious markings. Adopted by the policeman who rescued her, Luce Boudreau follows him onto the force, determined to prove herself in the eyes of those who are still suspicious.
However, there's more of a battle ahead than Luce could possibly imagine. She may be an orphan without a past, but no one - including Luce herself - could ever be prepared for the truth of her dark, powerful destiny . .

Biographical Notes

Every life is like a story.

Hailey's beginning was a good one. She was raised in a small town in Alabama with two siblings. Her parents have been married for 32 years, proof that humans really can mate for life.

Her middle is pretty good, too. She met her husband on January 11, 1999. Their first date was on February 5, 1999. He proposed to her nine days later on Valentine's Day. They married two months after that. He says it was fate. She's just happy he found her.

Hailey's end is unwritten, but she has the love of her family and the support of her friends.

That is the best happily ever after she can imagine.

She loves to hear from readers. Visit her website to find out how to say hello and for all the info on upcoming books: http://haileyedwards.net/

"One aspect of her writing I enjoy is her ability to take the mundane and with a few changes, turn it into something unique and unexpected.
