Bastard, Paperback / softback Book

Bastard Paperback / softback

Part of the Bastard series

Paperback / softback


My name is Carter Reynolds. I was born a bastard and I'll die a bastard. I learnt it at a young age, and nothing and nobody can change that.

I'm on a one-way path of destruction, and God help anyone who gets in my way.

That's until I meet the kid next door, Indi-freakin'-ana.

My dislike for her is instant. From the moment I lay eyes on her, she ignites something within me.

It freaks me the hell out. She's like sunshine and rainbows in my world of gloom and doom. I'm Indiana Montgomery. My friends call me Indi. Despite losing my mum at the age of six, I have a wonderful life.

My dad more than makes up for the fact that I only have one parent.

I'm his little girl, the centre of his world. When Carter Reynolds moves in next door, things take a turn for the worse.

He's gorgeous, sinfully hot, but he seems hell-bent on making my life miserable.

He acts tough, but when I look into his eyes I don't see it.

I see hurt and pain. I'm drawn to him for some reason. Whether he likes it or not, I refuse to give up on him. Spanning eight years, this is the love story of Carter and Indiana, by Australia's favourite new romance author, J.L.
