Where do you hide when there's nowhere left to run?
My life was an illusion built on fear, until one day, fate intervened.
I tried to run.
I tried to hide.
I tried to disappear.
At a small bed and breakfast in the middle of nowhere, I found myself, and then, he found me... Gus Gallagher, my aunt’s next-door neighbor.
He was persistent. He was everything I feared and everything I wanted. He was determined to win me over, but I was determined to drive him away. The possibility of more could never become a reality, not with him.
Soon though, I learned he was everything I needed.
The life I live now is an illusion based on deception. This time though, the lies I tell are my own. I knew eventually I’d get caught in my own web of deceit, but this wasn't my choice.
In the shadows the past is lurking; patiently waiting and set on revenge.
My life was unbearable until the day I decided to disappear.
My name is Laney Sloane and this is my story.
