Betrayal was such a simple word. But such a complex emotion. The woman I loved had turned her back on me. Taken everything I’d offered and thrown it away.
I may have vowed to protect her, but she's thrown down the gauntlet. And no matter how much I crave her, there will be consequences.
Emma Varma might be the beauty, but now she’ll meet the beast. I’ll keep my vow. I'll keep her safe from our enemies.
But her soul and her heart will no longer be safe with me.
