It’s a new world order—where the villains have become the heroes.
ERIC ‘WRAITH’ SHAW
Once upon a time… Yeah, no. Let’s stop right here. My life isn’t a fairytale. I’m not Prince Charming. And I haven’t forgotten the day Jamie Ellis left town in handcuffs. But that feels like lifetimes ago. My high school crush is all grown up and she’s married to the man holding me prisoner. Drugged and tortured, I’ve become a monster who’ll stop at nothing to rip David Crane’s world apart.
When I left Mayhem at sixteen, my heart stayed behind with the beautiful delinquent I’ve loved since kindergarten. But I’m a product of a life gone wrong, and I married David hoping for a better future. Now that I know the depth of my husband’s depravity, I’ll risk everything to ruin his carefully crafted empire, because if Wraith and I want our happily ever after, we’re going to have to fight for it…
**Wraith is a complete standalone in the Masters of Mayhem series.**
MASTERS OF MAYHEM BOOK ONE
The day I turned eighteen, the Unholy baptized me in blood, and I was reborn as Wraith. Hearing the name Eric on Jamie Ellis’s lips is both a benediction and a blasphemy. Spoken in a place that’s an endless nightmare, where I’ve become more monster than man.
She’s a fantasy come to life, pulled from a corner of my mind reserved only for her.
It’d be too easy to find out if her mouth still tastes of apples.
Do it, the devil taunts.
Unfortunately for us, we’re in hell, and there’s no angel to counter the evil perched on my shoulder. Its incessant voice is a buzz in my brain, reminding me how Jamie left me hanging for eight goddamn years like I was nothing. Not even an afterthought. There’s no one to stop me from lifting her skirt, ripping off her panties, and sliding into her. Nothing to prevent me from stealing one moment of pleasure in this world of pain and misery.
Nothing but my conscience
Praise for WRAITH:
“This is a beautifully dark, unique book and I cannot wait to see what happens with the rest of the Unholy men in the Masters of Mayhem series!” —Nick, Bewitching Reads
“[WRAITH] has vibes of the King series by T.M. Frazier and the Scarred Souls series by Tillie Cole, but it also has a feel and a story that is all its own, and I loved it!” —AJ, The Escapist Book Blog
“There are so many emotions that take place within these pages, and [Renee Rocco] did an amazing job of writing them so you feel what the characters feel.” — Heather, The Hatters
“This story is so beautifully tragic. It was hard for me to read at times & made my stomach drop on numerous occasions…This may be Renee’s debut book after [a] 13 year hiatus, but you would never know it. She knocked it out of the park!” —Renee, booklove.with.renee
“So raw and heated. [The] characters felt real and brokenly human. Give it a read you will not be disappointed.” —MekaWeaver, Amazon Review.
“The story is a fast fury of a read chock full of emotion, hate, and seduction.” —J.T. Patten, author of the Safe Havens Series
