Rose did the one thing I never thought possible…she found my heart.
As blackened and hard as it may be, she stole it, owns it. Somehow, through it all, she made me feel a little less ruthless. A little less like a monster.
That’s just how Rose is.
She’s my weakness—she always has been—and soon, I’ll be able to call her my wife. Mrs. Wilder. Then, she’ll be mine in every sense of the word.
But when an old enemy tries to rip my family and my empire apart, the wedding plans have to be put on hold. I refuse to let anyone take away the happiness I’ve worked so hard to find.
The happiness we deserve.
To keep my place at the head of the Wilder table, I’ll need to open old wounds. Go deeper than I’ve ever gone before. Be that monster again.
I’ll do it, but this time, I’ll do it with Rose by my side.
It’s the only way we’re going to make it to the altar alive.
