With her deep, sultry, and erotically mesmerizing voice, Brandi Heartt is the city of sins' midnight mistress. A woman with a tough exterior who takes sass form no one and manages to dish out her own brand of wickedness. Because of Brandi's past she is also a woman who harbors terrifying dreams of a world she thought she could leave behind. A place where she knew only poverty, destitution, mental, and sexual abuse at the hands of her uncle. A stagnant place where the legend of Satan’s Breath came alive and took away all that she held dear in a night that changed her life forever.

Yet looking into his Blue green eyes there is a perceptive keenness that shatters the image he portrays.
