But When They Fight, Only One Will Stand.
My parents kept me safe from the monsters lurking in the shadows.
I was their princess, given anything my heart desired.
But nothing they taught me could have prepared me to face this loss alone.
Until a handsome stranger knocks on my door and pulls me into a confusing, but comforting hug.
A savior at my door who promises to take care of me.
I’m absolutely terrified to leave the only home I’ve ever known.
He takes me away, hysterically kicking and screaming.
Leaving me to wonder if I’m really being saved after all.
I’m a sinner, too damned for redemption.
My soul is wicked, tarnished.
I have a dangerous mind, and I don’t suffer fools.
Ruthlessness courses through my DNA.
I’ve used my wit and brutal strength to take down my rivals, to decimate them without mercy.
Obsession rules my heart, so intense and consuming it leaves me weak, begging for more.
Unexpectedly, my innocent, youthful dove flew into a storm, and crashed into my lonely life.
She’s been sheltered, left innocent, vulnerable, and untouched.
Now, Mika is mine to protect, to cherish and to possess completely.
Whether she wants to be or not.

"Loved it-The author has given us a wonderful older man/younger woman story that pulls us into the lives of Arman and Mika. The story keeps us turning the pages with connection, vengeance, violence and steam." -C.J
"Arman and Mika-I liked this darkish insta-love forbidden age-gap romance. Arman and his "crew" made me laugh." -Bobcat
"The intense feelings between them was a highlight of this novella! I love how possessive Arman was. He didn't push her at all to become his- he just let it happen naturally, and I loved that. This novella was also ridiculously funny with several laugh-out-loud moments." -April is probably reading smut.
