They say true love is eternal, but what happens when love turns into obsession?

The nice thing about fiction novels is that they allow readers to escape their own problems; readers can delve into a brand new world while forgetting their own lives. Readers can spend hours enthralled in new characters that seem as real as their own family and friends. Romance books can be especially good for escapism. It can be romantic to think that one day you'll meet "the One" and that they will take care of all your problems while promising to love you eternally. However, what if Mr. Right turned out to be a stalker instead? In Never Free, I took some of the tropes and clichés found in romance novels and I decided to look at them in a new way. Would it really be romantic to have someone kill for you?

In Never Free, Lana is a young woman with the power to see the past when she touches certain objects. When she meets Jake, it is not love at first sight. Thanks to some misunderstandings, the two slowly develop a romance. However, Lana begins to suspect that Jake is hiding something from her. When one of Jake's secrets is revealed, Lana meets William, and she cannot help but feel unnaturally attracted to him. Was he someone that she knew in a past life? Soon, William invades almost every aspect of her life, even appearing in her dreams. Will this attraction be the death of her? Will her love with Jake survive? Can she keep her family and friends safe?

            In Never Free, I strived to create a protagonist who is strong but who also has flaws and moments of weakness. Lana is not a superhero who can take on the world, but she also will not let others abuse her endlessly. She has many interests outside of the guy that she's dating; her life does not revolve around her love interest. The primary focus of Never Free is still romantic love, but Lana does set aside time for herself, her family, and her friends.
