With one look, she became my obsession.
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do to have her, even if that meant risking everything I’d worked so hard to build. I put it all on the line and did what had to be done – for her.
I’m determined to have her in every way. But it’s not that easy. Like me, she’s damaged through and through, scarred by a past that haunts her very existence. She resists me, rebelling at every turn, but I can’t let her go. She doesn’t realize she holds the key to my salvation. She’s the only one who can calm the beast that rages within me.
Nathan James is every girl’s fantasy—rich, powerful, and devilishly handsome. I should be happy that he came to my rescue, saving me from my worst nightmare, but I’ve just exchanged one hell for another. He was the highest bidder, and now he thinks he owns me. He gave me my freedom. He gave me a second chance that I thought was stolen from me. He’s given me everything, except the one thing I truly want—his heart.
Will their love heal the wounds of their past, or will they both remain damaged goods?
Nathan James has lived in a torturous limbo for ten years as the killers of his father, girlfriend and his unborn child have continued to elude him. Tristen Carmichael has rebelled since her parent’s deaths and it is not until she is rescued from human traffickers that she realizes that she needs to take charge of her life for the better. Can two people trapped in the debris of their past find in each other the means to freeing their ravaged hearts?
Damaged Goods ushers in L. Wilder’s new Redemption series, loosely connected to her fabulous Satan’s Fury MC books. Nathan “Nitro” James has masked a world of pain behind his cold and efficient exterior for so long that he has forgotten what it is like to feel. When Tristen Carmichael’s own torment managed to crack his frozen exterior emotions that had long remained dormant started to leak out and L. Wilder extended them right to her readers for an intensely wonderful read. This author possesses a natural ease at presenting hard realities and giving her characters strength where many would think there was none. The affinity that Tristen and Nathan had for each other translated beautifully and brought about resolutions that had long evaded them when attempted on their own. As a couple Nathan and Tristen’s yearning for each other was at times heart-wrenching and at other times inspiring. Full of layers Damaged Goods brought out a story that was hard to put down as its characters rose above adversity to finally experience love with each other and readers alike.

Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.
