I don't forgive debts. If you owe me, you pay.
It's how I've built my empire.
But Ellie doesn't come begging me for her father's life; she comes demanding an exchange. Her life for his.
A deal is struck.
I'm not a good man. I'm a beast, and my hunger for her will be fed. I will possess her.
But there's more at play here than just the possession of a beauty. Secrets don't stay buried.
Outside forces want to take what's mine. And when Ellie finds out the secrets of her own past, she'll need to decide.
What exactly is she willing to risk for love?
