I loved him. I lost him. And now he’s back.
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.
After we went our separate ways and severed our ill-fated ties, I thought I’d never see him again … until he crashed back into my life at the worst possible moment—and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him.
But it wasn’t that simple.
It never is.
It turns out loving a wealthy powerhouse of a man comes with a price.
But walking away could cost me everything.
