There are two sides of my city.
There’s the filthy side–a place brimming with corruption and greed–the rotting carcass of a criminal underworld.
And then there’s the opulent side—a place of elegance and wealth—home of the elite and heart of that same cruel underbelly. Somewhere I could only dream of living.
That all changed when D’Angelo Remmington made me his latest acquisition. In the blink of an eye, I went from a street rat to a kingpin’s most prized possession.
He gave me everything I wanted, but there’s a saying about being careful what you wish for, because you might get everything you’ve been seeking, but nothing in life comes without a cost.
Now ensnared in a world that is as ugly as it is beautiful, what began as a fairy-tale slowly becomes a bittersweet tragedy of sensuality, violence, betrayal, and unrequited love.
And in order to survive, I must kill the naïve dreamer I once was, and embrace the vicious woman I’ve been forced to become.
Dirty secrets came to light, and my world imploded in a typhoon of death, chaos, and pain.
I lost everything. Including my identity.
Elias Remmington had all the answers I needed, but in order to get them he presented an ultimatum—a marriage of convenience. I had to become his.
Body and soul.
The moment I agreed, a twisted game of sex, murder, and manipulation began.
With my life on the line it’s imperative I succeed in winning. And knowing Elias has an obvious agenda of his own, I must determine if the dangerous man I share a bed with is an ally, or an enemy.
There is a story behind each of us.
Mine begins with Fredrico Remmington, and a promise made in the middle of the night.
I was a dancer plagued with sadness.
He was a man with too many secrets.
We parted just to reunite when my dreary
world lost its last bit of light.
I thought he’d be my white knight.
He was merely a monster hiding amongst men.
There is a story behind each of us, a reason for why we are the way we are.
This is mine.
