The soul of an artist. The heart of a monster.
Kinsey is sweet and innocent. She's utter perfection, making her perfect for ruination. When her father offers her as a way to pay his debt, Ronan accepts the agreement. He can't wait to carve stories of pain into her creamy flesh and paint her exquisite agony. She must suffer for his art.
She's a means to an end, and a new toy to play with, but she becomes more—so much more to the monster and the man. For the first time ever, Ronan starts to care about his model, to see her as more than a blank canvas from which to evoke the beauty of pain. For him, cruelty is intertwined with caring, but can she teach him a new way to love before he completely destroys her?
