Once upon a time there was an innocent girl…and a ruthless crime lord sworn to protect her.
Helina has spent most of her life alone, hidden away from the world for her own protection, with her stepbrother Gregori her only company. A man who consumes her every thought, filling her with dark, forbidden desires. When he comes to her with promises of forever, she’s ready to give herself to him and his darkness.
Gregori knew the moment Helina turned eighteen, she’d be his ruin. The protection he once offered her from his father is now his obsession. Gregori wants to own every part of her, leaving no chance for any other man to claim her heart.
Even with monsters lurking in the shadows, nothing will keep him from claiming Helina as his.
His to protect.
His to control.
His to own.
