Life is complicated. Life will throw you to the ground, piss on you, then light you on fire. I should know. So, I hide and pray that no one finds me, and eventually, I'll fade into obscurity. But one man does. He's overbearing, egotistical, and did I mention cocky? A real asshole that wouldn't stay away. We had one night, which only made my body even more treacherous. He wants more. And so do I. Grayson Mandrake owns me, but I won't be bought.


Ruthless, relentless, asshole. That's me. Always have been, always will. Until Emmalin grabs my attention. She's complicated, but who doesn't like a challenge? She was mine the moment I saw her, and I want nothing more than to destroy her soul to keep her. Own her. It's simple really. Emmalin is mine.
