Monsters don’t often look like monsters on the outside. 

Forced to marry a man I should hate, I’m now bound to Damian. 

I sometimes wonder what he sees when he looks at me. Deer in headlights, I guess. 

What I see is clear. 



Carnal want. 

A man with too much experience. 

The night he took me he told me I belong to him. He proved it on our wedding night. And I believe him when he says he’ll keep me safe. He won’t let anyone touch what’s  his. 

But I can’t forget what he is. Can’t forget the things he’s done. 

And no matter what, I can’t let myself fall in love with him.

My Thoughts:

Cristina’s story begins by showing the reader that this is not a standalone.  If you have not read Unholy Union please stop and go back and read that one first.  If you want to understand the cast of characters than starting at the beginning will help you out alot.   

Damian is still a man to be reckoned with.  He still expects orders to be blindly obeyed.  His family is very interesting.  In this latest addition of the series stranger things start to happen.  This amps up the suspense that we got a taste of prior.  Here, Cristina seems to be the sane one.  She’s been added to Damian’s family but it’s a family of what? 

In this book I felt as if I was watching an Italian soap opera.  There’s lots of suspense, mystery, and plenty of heat.  That means there’s plenty to keep you entertained.  Then I started to think of what type of music to listen to and I kept coming back to the Godfather soundtracks. 

I liked watching Cristina grow into her new roll and yet being confused by the world she’s been thrust into.  The author turns something that seems to get darker as we go along into something light and yes even romantic – and that includes Damian.  This is a series that I can see myself reading more than once.  It was a very pleasant surprise. 

“Welcome home, Brother.”
I look up at Damian. Beautiful Damian.
He shifts his gaze to mine. 
“Didn’t I tell you to leave the locked doors alone?” he asks me, but his voice is strange. Echoing in this dusty, forgotten place.
The music starts again. That eerie sound of piano keys played slowly, so fitting to this place, this room, this house. 
My head is spinning. 
The other man, Damian’s brother, says something. His voice is similar to Damian’s but off. Like his face. Wrong.
Damian tucks hair behind my ear. 
I push his hand away, push his arms away. I turn slowly. They’re both watching me now, waiting to see what I’ll do. 
And the tune keeps playing, the chords slow. Sad.
I need to look at him. 
Can they hear my heartbeat? Blood beats like a drum against my ears. 
But I can’t run. I meet a monster at every turn. One standing behind me. The other holding me. 
He warned me about the monsters. How many more hide in this house?
“Cristina,” Damian says. 
I keep turning, my body still pressed to Damian’s.
I’ve taken shelter in my enemy’s arms. 
He’s in my periphery now. The monster. The brother. Tall, like Damian. I see the coat. It’s wet. He was the man walking back toward the house. It wasn’t Damian at all. What is out there that they go to see in the dead of night?
