Lucas, Kid, Hoodrat, Ace.
I’ve gone by plenty of names in my life. Names I’ve never been too fond of, but I’ve dealt with it because that’s what I do. I deal with shit I don’t like. I deal with shit that needs to go away. On a daily basis I’m reminded why I do it. Jasper was all I had left in this world. We made it work… kept the family business moving, so to say. I never lost sight of a goal. Not until my job brought me to her
If there was one girl that could be the end of me and everything I’ve worked for, it’s her.

Little Bird was cowritten by M. Dauphin and H.Q. Frost. It is the first book in the Caged series.
This book is quite the surprise. It is a very dark read so if you are sensitive, this may not be the book for you. For me, I like a book that is honest and doesn’t gloss over things and that is exactly what this book is.
Megan Porter was abused from the day she was born. Her parents, drug addicts, sold her body to pay their drug debts. When Megan meets Jasper, she thinks she has met her savior. Little did she know that she was trading one bad situation for another. The one thing that she has going for her is that she is Jasper’s obsession and she plans on using that to her advantage. That is until she meets Lucas. Lucas Ace is like a brother to Jasper. When Jasper thinks that Megan is up to no good, he hires Lucas to spy on her and find out what it is. Lucas knows if he finds any dirt on Megan, he will have to kill her. What neither of them, were planning on was falling for each other. Can they navigate the games they play and manage to stay alive and together?
These characters were both products of terrible upbringings. They are products of abuse who learned to not only adapt to their horrible environments, but how to thrive in them. There are no fluffy happy love scenes in this book. It is all rough and even brutal. Neither one of them actually WANT to like each other, they just do. But as the book continues, they find themselves in a mess they can’t get out of without one of them having to die. The ending is so twisted, it will make you beg for the next book. I know I did!

About the Authors:
An avid, self proclaimed closet book nerd by the age of nine, Dauphin didn’t take her love of fictional worlds public until she self-published her first book almost 20 years later. Since putting to paper the voices in her head, she’s fallen in love with a career of building, ruining, and rebuilding fictional character’s lives. Currently, she has self published two series, two full length novels, and two full length co authored books she’s written with her other half HQ Frost, as well as been involved with two anthology sets. Her love will always reside with the romance genre, but she does enjoy going off the grid every now and then with non-fiction.
From Southern Illinois, born and raised, she now resides with her husband, two small boys, and two very busy dogs.
If you friend her on Facebook, you’ll be subjecting yourself to a whole lot of awesome…. So what are you waiting for?!
H.Q. Frost is a fiction dictator of contemporary romance, but not limited to. After writing for nineteen years, Destructive Gods is her first published release.
