My life is the envy of women everywhere. I live in a gorgeous mansion, wear expensive clothes, go to A-list parties, and attend a prestigious college. It is a life of beauty and glamor . . . and all of it is a lie. Behind closed doors, I am bullied by my cold and powerful father. With no money of my own, I have no choice but to obey him . . . Until I am attacked, and a half man-half beast intervenes. Kit takes me to his home to heal, where I am immersed in his secret world. As we bond over unexpected experiences and shared interests, my gratitude changes into something that feels as old as time.
