THE RISING SERIES
The new world is her world.
She is Rachel Warner, daughter of the Chief of law enforcement… but she is also Darion Rhys, daughter of the most wanted rebel leader in the world. Two identities: one brings her respect, but the other can get her killed.
She is a plant. One wrong move would be catastrophic—the powers that be would use her to get to her family—and she can’t let that happen. She trains hard. Leo is determined to win her affections, but all he does is stand in her way. Making matters worse, she draws the interest of the youngest Rothwell heir, and son of her grandfather's nemesis. Johnny is strong, powerful, and he represents an opportunity—an irresistible chance for her to help her family come out of hiding. All she has to do is play a part and she's already done that for most of her life. But little does Darion realize that she is entering a web so thick, so impenetrable, that it will take all of her training and determination to survive what lies ahead.
Being on the arm of a Rothwell will come at a price—one that this young girl is not ready for...
Life is not easy when you are the daughter of the most notorious rebel leader in the world. When Darion Rhys first took the identity of Rachel Warner, she didn’t understand that she would ultimately be sacrificing her independence, her freedom, and her chance at love.
Hidden family secrets rise to the surface and begin to tear Darion's convictions apart. Her family has more to do with the rise of the new world leader than she ever imagined. Her identity makes her valuable to both sides. In the middle of the biggest conflict, Darion is sent halfway around the world for a lesson in reform. But the person they use to re-educate her is none other than Leo Bowman, and their intense love/hate relationship will push her past her limits. They want her broken. She has to face all of her fears—she has to dig deep and find the strength to persevere... or this time they will crush her.
Darion has finally been reunited with her family and the rebels who are still in hiding. But she is no longer a Rhys—she is now Mrs. Rothwell and Johnny is willing to do everything in his power to get her back. A sudden twist of fate alters the course of their lives, and Darion learns that you can't hide from a Rothwell forever—not if you've married one. Leo Bowman comes back into Darion's life, but this time he becomes her anchor. Darion sees a side to him she's never known existed—a side that would never, ever hurt her. The Bowman name lives up to its reputation and the stage is set for an assault like no other. The tables turn and the Bowman family gains control, vowing to destroy the Rothwell family altogether, including Darion. In the end, the very people Johnny tried to eliminate are the only ones who can help him regain his title—but do the rebels really want him back on the throne?
