I belong here with this monster, yet I still long for freedom.
I say that I hate him, but my heart pounds faster when he kisses me.
He breaks me. Spoils me. Taunts me when I’m on my knees before him. His punishments are exquisite pleasures I willingly endure.
Because I crave how he puts me back together again and again.
I’m nothing more than payment for a debt but Kingston treats me as though I am his most precious treasure. He swears that I’m safe, but the treachery of our enemies is subtle and cruel. They will not stop until I am at their mercy and Kingston is dead from a bullet in the back.
But I can ruin those seeking our destruction. I can save us before all is lost. Will love weaken or strengthen us when it matters most?
I’m Ava Bella Blue. A prisoner trapped in a gilded cell of lust and secrets.
Kingston Vaughn Winter is the beast I have fallen in love with.
It’s his personal motto but I’ve adopted it for my own now.
His obsession will become our salvation. And I will win this king’s savage heart before this is over.
