Gone Trilogy by Deborah Bladon

Part 1

Sending a half-naked picture to a stranger she met online, seems innocent and fun to Lilly Randall. After spending the past four years working towards an honors degree, she needs a distraction and flirting with a man she doesn’t know can’t hurt, right?

Clive Parker is the one man who holds all of Lilly’s dreams in the palm of his hand. He’s the CEO of one of the world’s largest technology firms. When her picture ends up in his pocket, her future will never be the same again.

She wants him to see her potential. He questions her motives. Neither can deny the unexpected attraction that exists between them.

When Clive’s doubts begin to push them apart, Lilly is forced to face the reality that nothing in life is guaranteed and in the blink of an eye, everything you value can be gone.

Part 2

Lilly Randall had finally landed the job of her dreams. She couldn’t have imagined that when she started working for Clive Parker at Corteck, that she’d end up in his bed.

Just as she was moving towards a bright future, the man she was falling hard for made a choice that would change their connection forever.

Desperate to get her life back on track, Lilly sets out on a new path towards fulfillment. Convinced that she can build a life without Clive, she makes decisions that will have far reaching consequences.

He wants her to understand his motivations. She wants him to accept their reality.

When things finally make sense to them both, the past appears and everything they’ve worked so hard to attain is stolen away in an instant.

Part 3

Lilly Randall had overcome a past filled with heartache and loss. She’d moved to Manhattan and was building a new and exciting life for herself. She was falling hard and fast for Clive Parker and now that she had a dream job, everything was exactly as it should be.

When her past showed up to taunt her, the reality she thought she knew was suddenly stripped away.

It’s hard for Lilly to know who to trust when the one and only person who promised to protect her, can’t give her the simple answers she needs.

Believing in Clive may be impossible and when the choice comes down to investing in him or herself, Lilly makes the only choice she can.

RUIN – Part One

Sitting next to a stranger on a flight from Boston to New York City alters the entire course of Kayla Monroe’s life. In her quest to escape the pain of rejection she jumps into the bed of an irresistible man who offers her a night that she’ll never forget.

Their connection is fierce and undeniable. When their paths cross again, a twist of fate brings her to the realization that the man she’s using to mend her broken heart is Dr. Ben Foster, a compassionate and respected physician.

Warnings about his past threaten Kayla’s future. She knows she should believe the rumors, but the moments she spends in his arms, and in his bed, wash away any doubt in her mind.

She sees a future with Ben but those closest to her won’t let her forget that the man she’s falling for has left a path of ruin in his wake that may impact her in a way she never saw coming.

RUIN – Part Two

Kayla Monroe had fallen hard and fast for Dr. Ben Foster. He was everything she needed and wanted after being dumped by the man she thought she loved. What started as a one night stand quickly turned into a blossoming relationship. Then the complications of his youth halt everything in its tracks.

The voices around her are telling Kayla that Ben isn’t the man she thinks he is but her heart is telling her something completely different. She’s drawn to him like a moth to a flame and as she listens as he explains his past, she sees the promise of a future with him that she desperately wants.

She’s the thread that will weave a path for Ben back into the family he has lost. She senses it and as she takes on the task of releasing him from his burdens, she discovers that the man she has been sharing her bed with is, more complicated than she ever imagined.

Just as Kayla is about to step into her future with Ben, she ends up in a place where she’s forced to accept a truth that she never knew existed.

RUIN – Part Three

Kayla Monroe felt safe in the arms of Dr. Ben Foster. He was helping her move past a broken heart and she was guiding him towards a reclaimed relationship with the brother he’d lost years ago. Their bond was unique, strong and bordering on a love that would change them both forever.

Then Kayla found herself thrust into the middle of a triangle she wanted no part of. She heard things that altered her reality completely. There’s no one for her to rely on but herself and she has to decide whether a familiar voice from the past holds more weight than the promise of a future she can’t quite grasp yet.

Trusting her heart has never been easy for Kayla. Trusting others has never been easy for Ben. Together they have to determine whether the sins of the past are too much to bear or whether a connection that is undeniable is worth the risk.
