ABOUT THE BOOK: “It was everything I could do to breathe when his gaze fell to my lips. Her perilous stare left me without words. It was the very way a lover left you speechless with a passing glance. But Declan didn’t just take a glimpse. He hardly blinked as he stepped closer, like he WANTED all space between us eliminated. Simultaneously, I gravitated towards him and wanted to run away. Everything I thought I knew about love and hate was destroyed in a heartbeat. The two were opposing feelings, but now I wasn’t so sure. And it was all because of HIM.”

Sometimes the bad boys have the greatest romance stories. In the Once Wicked Series, the infamous villains we love to hate are no different. But in this series, they finally get the chance to tell their stories…

In the swarm of chaos, neither he nor I moved. Time stood on end, waiting for one of us to react to the other. His body stiffened to the point where I wasn’t sure if he was breathing anymore. Was I? “Emelie?” The deepness of his voice cascaded through me like the tiny ripples in dark water.

REVIEW: Readers who love twisted fairytale retellings will not be able to put this short story down. The author’s writing style and her dark stories are both entertaining and enigmatic.

After Piper is born, Declan knows that he must wait until she is of age before he can take what is his.
