“Dark, perverse, and unbearably erotic, Pretty When You Cry is Skye Warren at her gritty best.” – Anna Zaires, USA Today bestselling author of Twist Me

I came from a place of dirt floors and holy scriptures. They told me the world outside was full of sin, and the first night I escape, I find out it’s true.

Ivan saves me, but he does more than that. He takes me.

He makes me his own girl.

My conditioning runs too deep. Ivan sees what I am. That’s the thing about showing a mouse to a cat. He wants to play.

And it’s terrifying, even for me.

Because the only thing darker than my past is his.

Author’s Note: Pretty When You Cry is a STANDALONE dark romance novel. It’s set in the sexy Stripped series world but can be read alone. Not intended for those uncomfortable with the subject matter or under eighteen.
