Two words that signed over my soul to a monster, all to save a kingdom I knew little about. This isn't a fairy tale. No knights in shining armor, only kings fighting for power. And my heart is the key.
A game designed to shatter even the harshest of resolves.
My husband wants to debase me. To break me. To destroy my spirit. To possess every inch of my soul through acts so heinous, I can hardly breathe. And he's using six men to do it. Including him. Adrik, Prince of Noxia.
Such a wicked twist of fate. Happily-Ever-After may not exist here, but amorous energy rises after a night of unbridled passion. A night I should hate, but don't.. A night I long to repeat.
"I love you."
A statement I will never say. Not even to him--my dark prince who plays in the shadows, engaging me in a forbidden dance of hope and adoration. He promises me a new crown, in exchange for my heart.
I will not be owned.
I will rise above them all.
And the only crown I will wear is the one drenched in their blood.
My designation. A plague. An essential death sentence in the underworld. Until I met him.
A Noxia Prince.
He's arrogant, a playboy, and the male who saved my life. Except he never gave me a choice, his blood tying me to him for an eternity of servitude. And I'm not sure I want to pay that price.
An unspeakable past.
Monsters haunt my nightmares. Most of them dead. But a few are still alive, and so I'll hunt them. Torture them. Slay them all. Even if it brings about an early demise.
A courtship signed in blood.
One bite sealed my fate.
Except someone is playing a dangerous game, and she'll stop at nothing to see me destroyed.
Life is a journey to Death.
Sometimes the only way to truly live is to die.
But I'm not going down without a fight.
