He didn't ask me to be his bride. He made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
I've been on the run from Constantine Thorne since I saw him kill a man nine years ago, but when he finally caught up with me he offered me a deal. Marry him and he will keep me safe.
I didn't realize he was the monster I'd feared until I was already his bride.
He's a brutal, heartless mafia boss and I wanted to hate the bastard, but with every stinging lash of his belt and every moment of helplessly intense passion, I fell deeper into the dark abyss.
He's the king of cruelty, and now I'm his queen.
