I Stand Before You
by S.R. Grey

When it comes to tattooed bad boys, Chase Gartner is the real deal. Partying, engaging in meaningless sex, getting into fights---Chase indulges in it all during his late teen years, thus firmly solidifying his status as a heartbreakingly gorgeous but way-too-dangerous-to-trust guy in his hometown of Harmony Creek, Ohio. Then, following one fateful night of reckless decisions, Chase's actions finally catch up to him and land him in prison.

Now, four years have passed and Chase finds himself a free man. He returns to Harmony Creek, ready to pick up the pieces and start rebuilding his shattered life.

Things are off to a promising start when he meets Kay Stanton, a young woman with a tragic past of her own. Despite a powerful attraction, Chase and Kay are naturally hesitant to become involved. That's why friendship feels like the safest option. But when passions ignite and love blossoms, a relationship that is destined and meant to be can only be resisted for so long. When Chase and Kay finally succumb to their feelings they realize being together feels more right and true than anything they have ever experienced.

But their love is soon tested. Chase's wild past still haunts and tempts him, and Kay is keeping a secret that could tear them apart.

I Stand Before You is a journey of hope and forgiveness, coming to terms with the past and moving forward. But mostly it's a story of two damaged people who take a chance, open their hearts, and find true love.

Excerpt 


My eyes stay with his, and though I think he might, he doesn’t stop me, not even when my fingers inch upward. Chase’s back is so strong. His muscles flex and move as I touch and press. When I find an area where the texture of his skin differs, I trace with my fingertips what feels like the edge of a falling feather. Chase’s breathing picks up. I know I’m turning him on—heat radiates between us—but I have no desire to stop exploring. I find another falling feather, then another.
Chase sucks in a breath as I continue to trace and touch. He’s not the only one feeling this palpable excitement, my fingers tremble as they move across his back. “Why are the feathers falling?” I whisper-ask, my heart racing as I press my palms to the wings.
With breaths uneven and eyes lust-hooded, Chase answers, “Because my wings are broken, baby, because I am broken.”
“You’re not broken.” I touch the angel between the wings on his back for emphasis. “You’re putting your life back together. Building isn’t breaking, Chase.”
