Publisher's Summary

"Just because one of you carries his scars on the outside, doesn't mean that the rest of you don't have them. Unbroken people don't live in a house together with their colleagues. They have lives, families. They don't take in strays."

Emily never expected to find herself on the street and looking for a place to stay. A park bench doesn't seem inviting in the depths of winter.

Her luck changes when a mysterious stranger offers her shelter. It seems too good to be true, and when she meets his other two housemates, she starts to question if he's the good Samaritan he seems to be.

Staying means things she couldn't even dream of. Going means facing the danger of the winter streets. Can she make the impossible choice? And will she make the right one?

A contemporary reverse harem set in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is the extended version of Streets of Winter, a novella previously published in the Snow and Seduction anthology. Eighteen+.

This is a full-length stand-alone novel that's part of the Defiance trilogy: three books, three women, three real-life stories. These dark contemporary reverse harem romances can be listened to individually or as part of the series. They are loosely connected by side characters and settings, but they each have a different heroine, theme, and love interests.

I so love this

Em has hit some hard times. She unexpectedly loses her place to stay and winds up homeless. Unexpected help comes when life is at its worst for her. I love that she doesn’t want anything handed to her and wants to stand on her own two feet. Intrigue and love await you on this journey. The narration is so good. I really want more.

Interesting Story!

This was a different Reverse Harem than usual. The story is filled with mystery, intrigue and suspense. Sija Kyo has a great voice, with a beautiful accent.

Nice thought, very poor execution

There was no apparent plot, and yet there was so much minutiae and detail with a glaring absence of a theme.
We have read some great reverse harem stories. This is not one of them.
However, the narrator was great. But the story was so disjointed it was like reading a series of unrelated Facebook posts.

Note to author: don’t give up. Keep trying....

Needed more from story

Abandoned Heart

This is the second book I’ve read from Skye Mackinnon. Once read, I listened to audio and the narrator made the story pretty great.

The sequence of the story, relationships that started and depth of connection to the characters was not really my style but I enjoyed the audio. Kyo Sija is easily becoming my favorite voice to listen to.
