I didn't know about the secret palace in the woods. Not until I held a stolen rose from its gardens.
A tall, dark, and mysterious man lives within the palace. He’s known across the kingdom as the royal beast. They say he’s a monster.
He also happens to be the crown prince.
As punishment for my crime, the prince orders me to spend one month as his prisoner.
But instead of throwing me into the dungeon, he whisks me into his bedchamber. The arrogant bastard says he’ll make me beg to give up my virginity. I tell him there’s no way in hell that’s happening, of course.
He's the freaking crown prince, and I'm just a girl from a provincial town in the middle of nowhere. We don’t belong together. That's obvious.
But somehow he knows about my dark, secret desires. All he has to do is speak in that low, dominant voice, and I melt into a submissive puddle. Despite my reservations, I find myself wanting to surrender my virgin body to the prince—and my heart, too.
I really should stay away. But being punished has never felt so good.
This is the first book in the Royal Beast Series by Nikki Chase.
