Betrayed and sold to a man I didn't know, I look for any chance of escape. I find it in Mikael a mysterious stranger who saves me from a dark fate. I don’t know why, but he keeps me close and makes me his, taking me as his bride so the man I was sold to can’t have me.
It’s transactional… At least that’s what I keep telling myself. But I fall for him more every day, and his rough kisses and gentle touches only cement that fact. When I realize he’s only taken me to spite Edward, the man who tried to buy me, I’m hurt and confused. Does he want me, or does he only want revenge?
I’m trying to live clean and walk within the narrow confines of the law. Even when my aunt lost her loved one, I waited for the wrongdoer to come to me. But sometimes rules have to be broken and when it comes to Aurora I have no scruples. Nothing will stop me from claiming my bride.
