<PROLOGUE>

What makes a person tick? Is it the way that are raised? Perhaps it is a genetic predisposition. Our DNA coded from the moment of conception to write out the entire way our life will play out. Of course somethings will be left to chance; fate better yet. But I can tell you from personal experience, some people are just born bad. 

I always did my best, despite have the genetic odds stacked against me. Saying I didn't win the parental lottery would have been the understatement of the century. Yet, I was always able to skate by in life. Trying not to be a statistic. Little did I know other people would take my choices away from me. 

I guess mod of my problems started when i got married. I was such a naive twenty year old. I thought the world was all sunshine and roses. He was my world, my reason for living. That was until he lost interest in me. A high risk pregnancy, bed rest, sex restrictions, and a colicky baby will kill intimacy for anyone. Breastfeeding isn't sexy. Neither are stretch marks Liam left me. I didn't care, and I still don't. But he did, and that is why I caught him in bed with my eighteen year old babysitter when my son was barely three. 

I know, my life is starting to should like a soap opera. I wish these were the darkest days. Back then, I though they were. I thought going through a divorce with a a four year old son was the end of the world. Ha. I wish I had known what my future would hold. What damage could be done at the hands of a stranger I thought I knew. 

Does anyone truly ever know a person? My answer to that questions would be no. Even the most open and honest people have dark secrets. Shit they would never reveal to anyone. You know you have those type of secrets, we all do. Hell, I do. I typically would never tell anyone. Except since the world knows most of them now, it is my turn to tell my own story. 

The true story of Aurora Alexander. The real dangers sod picking up strange men on the internet under the guise of dating, and new beginnings. It all began as a game. A way to spread my wings, and learn the dating game after being out of it for a decade. It ended in a violent attempt on my life. 

I am a fighter. I have lived to tell my story. No one can silence me. Not even him.
