With love comes pain.
And with pain comes scars.
Believe me, I have had my share of it all.
After my mother’s death, my father couldn’t deal.
So once again, we’re moving.
To a town full of lies, darkness, and corruption.
All masked in sunshine and money.
But then I meet him…
My biggest mistake.
My biggest temptation.
A royal pain-in-the-ass.
And Darrian King is no prince.
He’s controlling, aggressive, and downright wrong for me.
But what he dishes out,
I give right back.
After all, love hurts.
And so do we.
