My entire life has been a lie…
And the one person I allowed myself to trust has shattered any illusion I had left about who I was and where I came from.
The men around me have proved just how unworthy they really are, and now I’m caught in the middle of something far more dangerous than I ever could have imagined.
They all tangle together.
My father had to know this day would come. That his past would catch up with both of us.
Sebastian wanted me as pawn, and then for himself, but he seems to have forgotten who he’s dealing with.
I’m Stella Doukas… mafia princess. I bend for no man.
Not even the one who’s stolen my heart.
I can’t get enough of this series or of Stella and Seb. They’re fire and ice but so good together. Stella was a badass in Wicked Knight but she is even more of a boss here, bringing her enemies and lovers alike to their knees. Seb was the callous cad in WK but he’s so gone over Stella, nothing else matters to him and he’s ready to prove it, showing up when she needs him most. These two are forever, but it’s not going to be easy. Stella’s like has been a lie and there are so many forces at work, not the least of which is: who’s trying to kill her? This is un-put-downable and left me jonesing for the conclusion.
