I didn’t choose this path. No one would.
I played the cards I was dealt.
This life made me. This city made me.
I won’t apologize for who I’ve become.
Moses wouldn't have me any other way.
He says he wants forever, and I’m starting to believe him.
But I can’t outrun my past, and my sins are catching up with me.
If it’s time to atone, I’ll gladly pay my penance. We might be getting our second chance,
but we have to make it out alive first.
Madam Temptress is the second book of the Magnolia Duet and should be read after Creole Kingpin.
