Bestselling author Destiny Hawkins brings you the first installment of a steamy paranormal romance series where a dark queen has met her match, and a wolf has met his mate.
I lived in a world of darkness, never to see the light again.
It’s been eleven years since my father cursed Crystal City, since he condemned me to a life of loneliness and misery. By taking away everything that my mother loved, he took everything that I knew and cared for. Everything, but the throne. Only what good was being a queen in a city of mindless killers? A city that would never see the sunlight until the day of my death.
I truly had nothing to live for…
…Or so I thought.
The night that Wolfe was dragged into my palace, I knew that my life would never be the same. We were childhood friends once, but we went our separate ways. He became captain of the pirates, and I ascended to the diamond throne.
My once sworn protector had become my enemy, but we were both alone, and the connection we felt was almost unbearable to ignore.
My heart only cracked after my father abandoned me, but Wolfe would completely shatter it.
For someone that hasn’t felt anything for years, that wasn’t such a bad thing.
I tensed, gasping as Wolfe leaped through the air over the steps and landed in front of me. He growled, sending chills down my spine, but I still didn’t move, and neither did Ronan. He was quiet and most likely paralyzed with fear. I couldn’t blame him though. My first time seeing Wolfe in his true form terrified me as well.
“Wolfe,” I panted, “stand down.”
Wolfe growled again as he steadily approached me.
Taking a step back, I fell into my throne.
“I said to stand down,” my voice trembled.
I didn’t think that he would try to kill me, but he may attempt to inflict pain. Never have I ever thought that I would have to worry about him harming me.
Wolfe was at my knees now, and I was practically holding my breath until he shifted back into a man. Pressing his palm and nails into my thigh, he pushed himself up to eye level, then used his other hand to hold himself up using the arm rest. “Give me what I came for…”
