SHE THOUGHT THIS WAS A GAME. SHE THOUGHT SHE COULD WALK AWAY. SHE THOUGHT WRONG.
I’ve lived a cold, unforgiving life. I’ve seen things, I’ve done things, that would break a man if they didn’t kill him first.
With my past behind me, I have nothing. No way to atone for my sins and nothing to lift me from the depths of despair. And no one to give me the control that I so desperately desire.
Until I saw Lilly and then something inside my cold heart flickered.
There’s a sweet innocence about her that steals the breath from my lungs. She brings my darkness to the surface, and what’s more… she craves it just as much as I do.
The danger is what lured her to me. But she didn’t realize how intense this would be when she signed that contract.
She thought it was all fantasy and make-believe.
I’m not a knight in shining armor. I’m not a hero from a romance novel. I’m the villain.
And now she wants to leave?
I won’t allow it.
I own her. And I’m not letting her go.
