I’m a sucker for deadly main characters who are secretly soft for the romantic interest and this one delivers! A little bit Beauty and the Beast, a little bit Hades and Persephone, and with interesting world-building, I flew through the pages!
A smart, opinionated woman finds herself in a potentially scandalous situation with a drunken, spoiled, hurting duke—one she’d loved as a girl. She refuses to marry him, so he sets about changing her mind—by changing himself.
A sunshine extrovert and a grumpy introvert have to make an arranged marriage work or risk destroying the peace treaty that keeps their planets safe from the rest of the universe. Political, twisty, and romantic!
