USA Today bestselling author Lili St. Germain continues the story of a damaged Capulet princess, as she seeks the truth about her Montague captor in a world full of secrets and lies.
Avery Capulet. The forbidden fruit. The apple of her Daddy’s eye. The newly-minted Queen of California’s criminal underworld. And now, the missing girl nobody can find.
I know where she is, though. Kneeling before me, tears spilling from her eyes as the last bit of dignity bleeds from her. I don’t want the pound of flesh that the girl who betrayed me delivers, but I don’t have a choice.
Avery Capulet. Moaning underneath me, as pain merges with pleasure, skin to skin as we do what we can to survive.
I try not to love her. I try so damn hard. But the war waged inside my heart was won a long time ago, by a girl who should have known better than to trust a man like me.
Sometimes, we lose ourselves in the devastation of love.
But sometimes, we find ourselves there, too.
