In TILL DEATH, New York Times bestselling author JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT brings the riveting story of Sasha Keaton.
It’s been ten years since Sasha left her West Virginia hometown. Ten years since she escaped the twisted serial killer known as the Groom. Returning to help run her family inn means being whole again, except for one missing piece. This time FBI agent Cole Landis has vowed to protect Sasha the way he couldn’t a decade before.
First one woman disappears; then another, and all the while, disturbing calling cards are left for the sole survivor of the Groom’s reign of terror. Cole’s never forgiven himself for not being there when Sasha was taken, but he intends to make up for it now. Under the quirky sexiness Cole
first fell for in Sasha is a steely strength that only makes him love her more. Now might be the perfect time for them to make a fresh start—but someone is watching, waiting, and Sasha’s first mistake could be her last.

THERE WERE RULE S.
Rules that shouldn’t be broken, but it had happened
this time and damn it, it would happen again.
Didn’t matter that everything had been under control
up until this point. Didn’t matter that the rules
had been followed and needed to be followed.
Everything was different now.
She was coming back.
And she would ruin everything again.
The huddled, pathetic shadow in the corner
whimpered. The woman was awake. Finally. It
wasn’t nearly as fun when they were passed out
through all the good parts. Planning required patience,
and patience was truly a virtue, one mastered
over years and years of waiting.
Bloodied, dirtied rope circled the ankles and
wrists. When she slowly lifted her chin and her
lashes fluttered open, her startled cry came from
deep within a well of endless terror. It was in her
eyes. She knew. Oh yeah, she
knew she wasn’t walking out of here. She knew that
the sunlight she’d seen when she’d gotten into her
car the morning she’d left for work was the last sunlight
she’d see. She knew that was the last time she’d
breathe fresh air.
Dim artificial light was her home now. The
musky, earthy scent would be with her right down
to the very last breath she took, and that scent would
clog her pores and cling to her hair.
This would be her final place.
The woman tipped her head back against the
damp brick wall. The terror in her gaze gave way
to pleading. Always did. So fucking predictable. So
pointless. There was no hope here. There was no
chance of a miracle. Once they came here, there was
no knight riding to the rescue.
Footsteps sounded upstairs. A second later, faint
laughter echoed, drawing the woman’s wide gaze
to the ceiling. She tried to yell, to scream, but the
sounds were muffled. Those pathetic sounds stopped
when dull light glimmered off the sharp blade.
She shook her head wildly, flinging limp blond
strands across her pale face. Tears filled her brown
“It’s not your fault.”
Her chest heaved with erratic breaths.
“If she wasn’t coming back, this may never have
happened to you. It’s her fault.” There was a pause
as the woman’s gaze flew to the end of the knife.
“She fucked me and I will fuck her back in the most
This time it was going to end like it always should.
She was going to die, but first, she would pay. Pay for
