Bestselling author Destiny Hawkins brings you the first installment of a mind-blowing paranormal romance series where a dark queen has met her match, and a wolf has met his mate.
I lived in a world of darkness, never to see the light again.
It’s been eleven years since my father cursed Crystal City, since he condemned me to a life of loneliness and misery. By taking away everything that my mother loved, he took everything that I knew and cared for. Everything, but the throne. Only what good was being a queen in a city of mindless killers? A city that would never see the sunlight until the day of my death.
I truly had nothing to live for…
…Or so I thought.
The night that Wolfe was dragged into my palace, I knew that my life would never be the same. We were childhood friends once, but we went our separate ways. He became captain of the pirates, and I ascended to the diamond throne.
My once sworn protector had become my enemy, but we were both alone, and the connection we felt was almost unbearable to ignore.
My heart only cracked after my father abandoned me, but Wolfe would completely shatter it.
For someone that hasn’t felt anything for years, that wasn’t such a bad thing.
Wolfe was at my knees now, his eyes piercing through mine. I was practically holding my breath until he shifted back into a man. Pressing his palm and nails into my thigh, he pushed himself up to eye level, then used his other hand to hold himself up using the arm rest. “Give me what I came for,” he demanded in a low and intimidating voice.
My fearful eyes stared back into his. I couldn’t help but wonder what happened to him. Why did Wolfe of all people have to change? I was so afraid that he’d hate me for changing, because he may have still been the same innocent person that I remembered, but he wasn’t. He was a complete stranger.
I trembled with fear as I slowly leaned forward, but tried my best not to show it. Our faces were only inches apart now, and I could feel his warm breath on the top of my nose. Even with anger clearly displayed on his, he was still as beautiful as I remembered, “No.”
Wolfe chuckled, revealing his sharp canines, “Why do you always have to be so stubborn?”
My lips parted as my eyebrows pulled into a frown. I wanted to say something, but no words came out, and before I knew it, Wolfe was tackled down the stairs and onto the floor by Ronan.
“So, what do you say?” he asked.
I didn’t mind the idea of being intimate with Wolfe, but this wasn’t the way that I wanted to do things. I would be bound to him by an arrangement instead of friendship and loyalty. At least when I got in bed with Ronan, I felt free to do so. It was still an arrangement, but one that I was in control of. If I agreed to do this with Wolfe, he would be the one in control.
“What if I say no?” I asked.
Wolfe reached up and pushed a few strands of loose hair behind my ear, “I’ll make living very hard for you. You’ll hate the thought of being queen by the time that I’m done, if I ever finish. You remember, right? I was never one to give up.”
I took in a deep breath, “What would you do?”
Wolfe chuckled, “Screw everything up for you. You know me, Allora. I’m not as different as I was back then, and you know of what I’m capable of, or maybe you don’t? Maybe I’m worse.”
“Oh, I’m sure you’re worse,” I frowned.
“Then seal the deal. Give yourself to me.”
I swallowed, my eyes dropping down to his lips. My body wanted to give in, but my mind was telling me that it was a bad idea. I was queen. I couldn’t let another man own me. “What if I don’t want to?”
“You will,” he said, grabbing a handful of my dress and sliding his knuckles up my thigh.
My eyes widened, “What are you doing?”
Once my dress was up high enough, Wolfe slipped his hand under and lifted my leg, “Convincing you.”

I took in a shaky breath before taking the three steps down into the shower and gasped as the hot water shocked my cool skin. It took me a moment to adapt as I made my approach towards Wolfe in the center of the shower floor, but eventually, the heat became pleasurable as it warmed me. Once I was only a foot away from him, the redness of his eyes filled with brown, and he took a step towards me, filling the gap I left between us.
“I…I don’t know what to do,” I admitted.
Wolfe’s eyelids lowered as he reached over and pushed a few strands of wet hair behind my ear, “You don’t have to do anything. Like I said,” he stepped in closer, pressing his hardness against me. “This is just something to calm you down. Nothing else.”
My heart raced at the thought of touching him, and I began to feel eager, needing pleasure to force away my pain. We’ve been this close more than once, and not one time has he touched me the way that he did before. I wonder why? What is he waiting for?
The spot between my legs tingled as his hardness brushed against me again, and I took a struggled breath, “I need…” I need you inside of me.
Wolfe slowly looked me up and down, his lustful gaze only making me want him more, “Not this way. I won’t have you like this.”
I knew what he meant and understood that having me while I was in this state of mind wouldn’t satisfy him. Ronan wasn’t like Wolfe, so he was fine with having me when I wasn’t all the way there. When I was feeling at my lowest. Wolfe was different. He wanted all of me, completely.
