Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer (Nightmares Trilogy Book 1)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Six months ago, Nathan's sister was brutally murdered.
Now the 23-year-old playboy desires only one thing: revenge.
Late at night, Nathan trudges down the beach where his sister's body was found. He's searching for answers, but all he finds is a new nightmare: another girl's tortured body.
Only this one isn't dead . . . yet.
The unlikely hero becomes the prime suspect. Saving Caitlin's life was just the start. Nathan must win her trust and unlock the memories hidden in her nightmares to find out who's really responsible . . .before it's too late.
A tiny taste of what's in store:

Stay away from her? I'd go crazy with worry in a day. "You don't know her."
Chris looked grim. "Neither do you. Is there anything you wouldn't do for her?"
"Yes," I snapped. "I wouldn't die for her."
Chris turned around to stare at me, her mouth hanging open.
"Do you want to know why?" I asked steadily. "I wouldn't die for her because I wouldn't be able to protect her any more. What if I missed one of the people who hurt her? I couldn't take that risk. She's too important."

"Oh God, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to..." I looked up into her eyes and forgot whatever I'd meant to say. Her whole face lit up as she smiled and let out a peal of laughter that drowned out the anonymous boy

I was ready; I had my arms around her, supporting her weight, before she could hit the floor. I lifted her and carried her back to where she'd been sitting on the edge of her bed. "You don't need to fight me," I said softly. "I'm not here to hurt you. Save your energy so you can recover for when you do
hospital-issue nightgown and she'd managed to kick the bedclothes off in her struggle against her nightmares, so everything the scanty nightgown didn't cover was on show. White dressings were stuck to her back, with more on her legs, particularly her ankles and her thighs. Bruises covered her exposed skin in a disturbing rainbow of dark colours. Before I could stop her, Chris crossed the room and grabbed Caitlin's sheet. She yanked it up to Caitlin's chin, covering her up almost completely. Her

Slowly, I pulled the zip down, then flipped it open to expose her blood-soaked shirt. Pretend you're back in the hospital, doing a chest examination on someone who's been in a fight. "It's okay, it's okay," I murmured as I checked her ribs. I breathed a sigh of relief as I realised that none of them
Neighbour stood, both hands clenched on the backrest of his barstool. "Wrap your arms around my neck, give me a big, sloppy kiss, smile and act drunk.

"I love you, Nathan," Caitlin slurred, throwing her arms around my neck. I stared at her in shock for saying words I never thought I'd hear, even though I knew
