Broken: A Novel : Laila had it all - love, family, wealth, and faith. But when her world fell apart, Laila escaped to New York to pursue a career as a model. Her new world of glamour turned out to be an illusion, however, full of danger and deceit that eventually led to murder. Now, reinventing herself once again, Laila has managed to create an unassuming life in Greenville, South Carolina. Though she avoids personal connections, she can't resist a male colleague's persistent attempts at friendship that could lead to something more. But even as Laila struggles to move forward, she can't seem to forget the crimes of her past. When a stranger approaches her and says he knows what she did, Laila runs, pursued by mysterious men in dark shadows and haunted by visions of the man she killed. Little does she know she's being hounded by something not of this world, something that knows her deepest, darkest secret that will follow wherever she goes.
