Publisher Description

I was born a princess among criminals. An untouchable among thieves. Heiress to a life others have killed for, and one I'd do anything to escape. I vowed not to leave without Diego, my first love and best friend, but if his ruthless brother has his way, I won’t leave at all.

Cristiano de la Rosa is a man as big and bold as his legend. Once upon a time, he was our cartel’s best soldier . . . until he became my family’s worst enemy. And a man like Cristiano will bend fate to his will to get what he wants—even if it means tearing me from another's arms.

Because in the de la Rosa family, old grudges run deeper than loyalty, and betrayal is a three-letter word: war. But his feud isn’t between enemies—it’s between brothers. And I’m the prize.

Book 1 in the completed, USA Today bestselling White Monarch trilogy.

$4.99 I will never get back

First off, if you enjoy men manipulating and denigrating women, this book is perfect. The two men in the love triangle treat the heroine like a piece of chattel. She herself is portrayed as naive and weak to resist the charms of a man who is holding her family’s safety over her head to sleep with him. The other manipulates her constantly. Why do female authors do this? Why do they enforce horrible stereotypes about women and tropes about men that lead to abuse and virtual slavery of women? Can never understand it. Making the female heroine behave stupidly and get mocked by the heroes.
