“You will be loved many times by many men. But you will only ever love one man. And that man will be your destruction.”

Wren Whitney lives a beautiful life. She is a child of Beverly Hills, growing up in boarding schools, on private jets—a life of extreme wealth and privilege.

Wren Whitney lives for adventure. She is afraid of nothing. She says no to nothing. Her existence is a blur of international incidents, outrageous stories and the many men that love her.

Wren Whitney has never been in love. She has said the words many times but has never meant them. I love you is the only lie she’s ever told. Except when she says the words to her girlfriends, the people she most adores. But to a man? No. She would never mean those three words. Because it would be the end of the life she holds so dear.

Wren Whitney knows the second she meets him that he will destroy her. That she will love him with everything that she is. Until her dying day. She tries to fight it, feebly. Because she is a woman who isn’t afraid of anything.

Not even him.

“He will be your sun. Your stars. Your moon. Even though this man is darkness itself. Midnight personified.”

Wren Whitney does not trouble herself by thinking of the consequences of her actions. What events she put in motion by letting him into her life. She never could have imagined what would happen to her. To them. How utterly ruined they would both be by their love.

~ Author’s Note ~

For those of you who have read the ‘Klutch Duet’, you know what’s to come in this book. For those who haven’t, I caution you to continue reading at your own risk, as I’m going to be talking about a major plot point in this book, I’m going to ruin it for you. So skip over this part if you don’t know. But even if you haven’t read the Klutch Duet, you might need to know if you have some triggers that will stop you from wanting to read this book.

I wrote the Klutch Duet while I was going through one of the hardest periods of my life to date. Truths That Saints Believe was written as I was recovering from a miscarriage. I shared this loss on social media, intent not to hide it away, not to hide our little girl away. She mattered, she existed, and she still exists now, even if it’s only in our hearts.

If you’ve been a reader of mine for some time you’ll know that I include a lot of my personal struggles in my books, one way or another.

Writing is my therapy. It is how I escape, and it is how I tell another version of my story. One where I’m always guaranteed a happy ending, no matter how scary things may be.

If you are a long-time reader, you will know this is not the first time I’ve written about miscarriage or losing a baby. I wrote about it when I was pregnant, in Scars of Yesterday, without knowing what was to come. I was sure that if I wrote about it, it wouldn’t happen. Couldn’t happen. It was my worst fear. And people who are terrified of something, actively terrified, they didn’t have to deal with things coming true. The people afraid of flying will never be in the planes that goes down.

 I was worried, while starting this story, that miscarriage would become too common of a theme throughout my books. That people would get ‘sick’ of seeing my trauma in my books, that it would defeat the whole purpose of reading—to escape, to feel safe.

I questioned whether I should even write this book.

But that’s not how this works.

I don’t get to choose which book I write.

The characters choose. And Wren and Karson demanded their story be told. There was no other way I could write this story. I’m warning you now, this is going to be hard if you’ve experienced miscarriage or loss in general. There were parts of this story I wanted to shy away from. Wanted to delete. But that would not be telling this story honestly.

This is a romance, yes. But it’s also something else entirely.

I found out I was pregnant for the third time while halfway through writing this story. It was a bittersweet feeling, as many of you unfortunately will know. I was utterly over the moon, but it was also hard for me to wade into dark parts of myself, explore loss while trying to be hopeful for this being the time we got our rainbow.

I am happy to say that we got our rainbow and we have a healthy little rainbow baby expected October 2022.

I wrote the above with hope and faith, in the mind of an author, certain I could write the happy ending to our own story, satisfied that we’d been through more than the amount of struggles allotted to a couple before they got their HEA. After our second loss, I had already written our story. The positive test wasn’t a surprise. It was all part of the plan. This was it. No bad thoughts allowed. Because there was no possibility this would happen to us again. I’d already decided. I’d already written our future in our mind. I was manifesting, people. The plane wasn’t going down.

But that’s not how life works. There is no formula. Manifestation is a wonderful, amazing things and sometimes, it all works out. And, Sometimes, shit happens. We lost our third baby.

So I’m still writing this with faith, hope and a little more pain. Writing this book has been the best kind of escape and therapy for me. Because I know, no matter what, Wren and Karson are going to get the ending they deserve. They will get their HEA.

If you’re reading this in the same position I am now, our story, my darling reader, is not over yet. But there is a happy ever after coming. It might not look how we imagined, but it’s coming.
