August Monreaux was a stormy sea of a man, the dark between the stars, an electric chill cutting through a crowded room—all wrapped into one wicked, beautiful package.
He was also off-limits.
My entire life, I was kept a safe distance from the notoriously virulent Monreauxs, banned from so much as breathing the same air. And like the good daughter I was, I obeyed those rules.
Until the one time I didn’t …
Only while I sampled him, he devoured me like the forbidden fruit that I was. And in the blink of an eye, my worst enemy became my first love. His poison became my antidote. His touch, my addiction.
And then he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
So I didn’t.
But falling in love was never part of our secret arrangement.
Our futures were written in the stars long before either of us were born.
But what a Monreaux wants, a Monreaux always gets.
And August will stop at nothing to make me his—even if it costs him everything.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This angsty, forbidden romance has major Romeo and Juliet vibes but promises a HEA.
