How did I end up here? What have I done?
That’s what I keep asking myself over and over again. I’m such a disappointment to everyone around me. Well, at least I would be if they knew the truth. The truth behind the smile. Because behind my smile is a broken girl who cries alone at night.
One moment. One choice. One mistake.
That’s all it took to change everything.
And somehow, he still cares. He still writes songs about memories of us—of me. Even when I walked away, because it’s not just my life I have to think about anymore.
If we had the chance to be together again, would he want me? Does he still see me as the girl in the songs he sings? Or am I nothing more than sad memories of what could have been?
From the moment we exchanged our first glance, Lennox Lincoln-Ward has been out to destroy me. So I keep my head down at Pembroke Prep, and I stay out of the Hellfire Club’s way. Even so, Lennox finds me, seeks me out until he pins me in his beautiful, withering gaze—the same gaze that sends a chill down my spine and an undeniable tingle to other places.
Lennox is royalty with a dark past. One that I intend to investigate. I’ll find his secrets and expose every lie that rolls off his tongue. But getting close to Lennox has particular dangers—including his mouth, his golden eyes, and the brutally soft touch of his fingers.
I intend to unravel him, but in the end, I may be the one who comes apart, broken in the hands of a callous prince.

The Devil comes with baggage, and not the kind you can lose. I was two years old when he saved me. I didn’t understand much at that age, but I remember the pale boy with hair as dark as ink, saving me from two evils. He said he would protect me; I just didn’t know he meant from himself. I was raised in the arms of evil, tailored for the Devil like a custom Armani suit, and every day he wore it like a weapon. Brantley thought by keeping me locked in his manor that it would protect me, and it did.
Until it didn’t.
As I slowly adapt to The Elite Kings Club and the dark, sinister world that exists around the outlaws in suits, I come to learn that the monster everyone fears is the very same one I crave.
