Till death do us part.
My father married me off to one of the most powerful men in Italy.
Maverick DeVille. But I call him the wolf.
He calls me his sheep.
The arranged marriage was detested by us both, but we had to make sacrifices for the right reasons. He needed to avenge his mother and I needed protection from the mobs that want to torture me.
He's not what I pictured for my husband. He's ruthless, calloused, and cold. His walls are higher than mine. He possesses cruelty that makes him feared.
But it doesn't take long for me to respect him...even like him.
I rely on my husband more than anyone else in the world. He provides for me, protects me, and chases away all my fears.
He lets me graze in the meadow...not a care in the world.
Because the wolf is always watching.
"When people look in the darkness, they see shadows. I see monsters. And I kill the monsters that hunt my sheep."
I hated this marriage in the beginning, but now I realize how lucky I am.
How lucky I am to be the sheep the wolf protects...and doesn't eat.

This is my first time reading from this author and I have to say this book was very different from what I expected.. it was pretty interested and kept me entertained all day as I went through the pages and my daily life. I’m not what I think is missing from this story but something definitely felt like it was missing when I ended the book. I will read the next one because I am curious what will happen and I have high hopes I won’t feel like there’s a piece missing anymore.
Although Penelope Sky brings elements of previous series to each new one she writes somehow they continue to surprise and engage the reader. Looking forward to Book Three.
But so good! Penelope has kept things the same in some ways but also turned the plot to this story different from everything else she’s written thus far. I’m proud of the diversity and am loving the way the story is building. It’s a slower burning build up to its eventual finale and not rushed whatsoever. I’m loving the way things are going with Maverick and Arwen. She doesn’t give up easily and Mavericks defenses also don’t go down easily either. I can’t wait to read more...
