Title: Out to Find Freedom
Author: Lila Rose
Release Date: July 30, 2019
Death and pain.
They surround me. Hold me hostage, refusing to let go.
But I want to survive. Want to fight. I just don’t know if I have it in me.
Maybe dying would be better.
It’s the break in the shadows that gives me hope.
When I look at him, all I can see is light.
So now I’m out to find freedom.
Private investigator Ryan Warden doesn’t know he’s moved next door to people he would put behind bars in an instant. Nor does he realise a sleepless night could lead him on the right track with the case he’s working on.
He certainly doesn’t expect Emerson Spence.
What he does know is he has to stay away from her. She’s been beaten and broken. She deserves to live freely while learning and experiencing things in life like any young woman should.
He’s too old for her. It’s better to stay away.
If he can.
Author’s note: Out to Find Freedom starts out intense and dark, then moves into a very slow burn romance. It’s also set six months after No Way Out (Stoke and Malinda’s story from the Hawks MC: Ballarat Charter) but it can be read as a standalone.

Emerson has been forced to endure a dark and painful existence but the one thing she hasn’t given up on is hope. When she reaches out to her neighbor it could be the answer to her prayers or make her nightmare that much worse.
Ryan is a P.I. who has moved next door to Emerson. He doesn’t know much about his neighbors but when Emerson reaches out to him he knows that all is not right in her world and won’t rest until he knows more.
This is a dark emotional story about a brave heroine who has a strength second to none that allows her to survive and a man who realizes that the aftermath of her trauma will be the biggest challenge of all. This story draws you in and keeps you captivated until the last page.
