Royal Gabriel is sickened by her family's sick customs towards bloodlings and others they consider less than themselves. Her father Charles has captured the alpha of the pack and plans on making him into a prize fighter. What Royal can't control is her attraction to "X".
Maddox, "X", is taken by Charles but will not give up trying to escape from Charles and will use Royal to do so but doesn't realize how much will he care about her.
But there is so much working against the two of them and her family is much more dark than Royal ever thought they could be.
I love the chemistry between Royal and Maddox! It is clear how much they both genuinely care but they have a lot to face together - including her family and his as well.
This is the first time I have read a book by the author and it certainly won't be my last!
