I loved him. I lost him. And now he’s back.
August Monreaux was a stormy sea of a man, the dark between the stars, an electric chill cutting through a crowded room—all wrapped into one wicked, beautiful package.
He was also off-limits.
My entire life, I was kept a safe distance from the notoriously virulent Monreauxs, banned from so much as breathing the same air. And like the good daughter I was, I obeyed those rules.
Until the one time I didn’t …
Only while I sampled him, he devoured me like the forbidden fruit that I was. And in the blink of an eye, my worst enemy became my first love. His poison became my antidote. His touch, my addiction.
After we severed our ill-fated ties, I thought I’d never see him again.
Until he crashed back into my life at the worst possible moment—and asked me to marry him.
But it wasn’t that simple.
It never is.
Turns out marrying a wealthy powerhouse of a man comes with a price.
But walking away, could cost me everything.

There is very little that I enjoy more than a spin on a Shakespeare play. This one did a good job as far as I am concerned, then again I do like Winter’s book.
The main characters were good together, but I didn’t connect to the hero the way I would have liked to. The story flowed nicely, and I had no issues there. The only reason I marked this one down was because according to the blurb it felt like it would be something completely different than what it was. I wasn’t upset with the book, but I felt it wasn’t what the blurb portrayed.
“Good things never last, especially when they weren’t supposed to happen in the first place.”
