My name is Cassidy Porter...
My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.
Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware - every day of my life - that I am his child, his only son.
To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.
I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.
It's a promise I would have kept...if Brynn Cadogan hadn't stumbled into my life.
Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain...
Unloved.

An interesting twist on the murderous genes dilemma. Nature Vs Nurture?

Of course, in articles, there is some scientific discussion of the X variant that that causes an MAOA deficiency that then links to violent behaviour according to some studies.

This is also known by some as the ‘warrior gene’. Which of course, was very useful when we lived in small tribes and needed to defend ourselves against others but in today’s society, not so much. And adding this genetic trait to a soldier is a bad move.

But other scientific studies have linked this gene to serial killers or mass murderers and this is an on-going controversy.

There is evidence that psychopaths / sociopaths make up a significant proportion of the prison population – but what causes a psychopath? Are they born or made? And this is the underlying issue that this story centres around. If they are born then our ‘hero’ must remain unloved and isolated from any population that might cause this gene to function. But our hero hasn’t demonstrated the typical childhood behaviour of a psychopath – the animal killing etc – so does he really have this gene?
