That's right, y'all! I can finally talk about this. 
BROKEN has a sequel!!
The title is 
It's darker, faster-paced, gritty, gruesome, a little steamy and told from Alex's point-of-view!

Isn't it GORGEOUS?? *swoon* I am a lucky, lucky girl. Artist Steven Wood knocked it out of the park on this one! The hanuting colors, the devastation surrounding them, Alex carrying Emma... *pets the pretty*

What's TAINTED about, you ask? Well, I'm glad you did! Here's the summary:

Alex Franks believes the madness is behind them. With Ascension Labs under his direction and the forces threatening Emma’s life overcome, they have a chance at a normal life, and keeping his secrets safely buried.
But a shadow rises from Alex’s past, and she wants him back. Criminally brilliant, Hailey Westmore will stop at nothing to claim the boy she was meant to be with.
Without warning, Emma Gentry finds she cannot trust anything. Not her mind, her memory, not even herself. Tragic events and unexpected deaths stalk Alex and Emma, testing them in ways they would never imagine, and may not survive.
Alex carries a new secret, and a horrifying guilt that Hailey uses to her advantage. Emma’s life and sanity in the balance, and Alex may have created a monster…

And because I'm cheeky like that, I'm giving y'all a little unedited snippet:

Relief floods me when Emma’s gaze finds mine. She makes everything bad melt away. 
“Hey,” I manage, my voice husky even to my ears.
“Hi,” she purrs in a sleepy voice.
Holding her suspended, I whisper, “Com’ere.”
“What?” She fakes a shocked, scandalized expression. She’ll kiss me regardless, I can read it in the way she clings to me, the hint of a smile in her eyes. “Here in the sanctuary?”
“No place better.” She is my sanctuary.
Emma eases her cast along my jaw, weaves her fingers in my hair. Her breath tastes like sleep and mint gum the second before someone’s parent whacks me on the shoulder.
“This is a church,” the chaperone almost hisses.
Yes, and I am giving thanks.
