These Defiant Souls 💙 Now Available

Release Date: October 25

A brand-new story from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author L A Cotton, set in the angsty and gritty Darling Hill series.


Celeste Rowe is lucky.


At least, that’s what everyone thinks. Rich, beautiful, and smart, she has it all.


She knows one thing though: the heart is a treacherous thing.


It wants what it wants. You can try to fight it. Ignore it. But in the end, it’ll ruin you.


Zane Washington is doomed.


At least, that’s what it feels like. Poor, cynical, and desperate, he’s carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.


He knows one thing though: the heart is a treacherous thing.


It wants what it wants. You can try and resist it. Avoid it. But in the end, it will break you.


On paper, they couldn’t be more different. But Celeste and Zane are about to discover that, sometimes, the very thing you shouldn’t want, is the only thing you need.


And maybe it’s time for love to defy the odds.

Celeste appears to be living a life that others would envy as she can have anything that money can buy but that doesn’t equal happiness. Trying to meet the expectations of others have taken their toll so even though she is surrounded by people she feels alone except when it comes to Zane.

The life that Zane is living couldn’t be more different from Celeste as it is a struggle financially, but his Grams has always been there for him. He believes he knows that kind of person that Celeste is and wants nothing to do with her, but he is about to find out that he couldn’t be more wrong.

Celeste and Zane’s journey to find each other is filled with emotion and angst as Zane tries to fight his feelings for Celeste. She shows him that they aren’t that different after all and despite what he believes all she really needs is him.

Meet L.A. Cotton

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of over forty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.
