Griffin m’a proposé de me raccompagner, mais j’ai refusé, comprenant qu’il devait ramener Vanessa à la maison. J’ai marché jusqu’à mon appartement et pris un raccourci par une allée. La pire erreur de ma vie. Quatre hommes m’ont empoignée. Je me suis débattue mais, quand le canon d’un flingue s’est posé entre mes deux yeux, j’ai su que c’était peine perdue. C’est alors qu’un homme est apparu entre les ombres et a fait fuir mes ravisseurs comme des rats. Grand, ténébreux et beau. Il s’appelle Bosco Roth. Il vient de me sauver la vie, mais il ne l’a pas fait gratuitement. Il veut quelque chose en échange. Un baiser. Un baiser chaud et passionnel, juste là, contre le mur. Mais ce baiser n’est que le début.
Griffin offered to take me home but I refused, knowing he needed to get Vanessa home. I walked to my apartment and took a short cut down an alleyway. That was the worst mistake of my life. Four men grabbed me. I fought them off, but when the barrel of a gun was pressed between my eyes, I knew the game was up. But then a man appeared from the shadows and scared the men away like rats. Tall, dark, and handsome. His name is Bosco Roth. He just saved my life, but he didn't do it for free. He wants something in return. A kiss. A hot and passionate kiss right up against the wall. But that kiss is just the beginning.
Bosco Roth is a crime lord. The owner of the biggest underground casino. He's the kind of man who gets what he wants. He's got the best poker face in the world. Now he wants me. When things become too intense, I hit the brakes and make a run for it. But one problem...he won't let me go. Now I belong to Bosco Roth.
My husband is cruel, ruthless, and despicable. I hate him with every fiber of my being. The only reason I haven't killed him or tried to run away is because of the promise I made. I sold myself to save someone I loved...and this is the price I have to pay. I was sitting alone in a bar when the most handsome man walked inside. Striking blue eyes, cheekbones as sharp as glass, and a muscular body fit for a war. He was gorgeous. I couldn't take my eyes off him. When he bought me a drink, I didn't say no. I'd been unfulfilled for so long, and I wanted a real man for the night. My husband had his affairs so why couldn't I? I noticed the peculiar ring on his right hand, a diamond carved into a skull. If only I'd known what that meant, I would have known who this man was. The Skull King. A man more cruel and ruthless than my own husband.
