TITAN

I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.

A King is supposed to rule his Kingdom using any means necessary to demand respect.

Iโ€™m not a weak manโ€ฆ A King kneels to no one.

Iโ€™ve only ever cared about one other person in my life, but the thing is, she never belonged to me. And before I could tell her how I felt, she left.

Now sheโ€™s returned, needing someone to save her.

Emilee York was always meant to be mine, and Iโ€™ll see to it that happens. I always get what I want, even if that means I have to take it.

And sheโ€™s no different. Sheโ€™ll be my queen, one way or the other.

EMILEE

When I left Sin City behind me, I had no plans to return. I avoided everyone, even my friends, to stay in my bubble. Iโ€™ve always been the kind to pull away and run when things get difficult.

But one phone call changed everything, and I was racing back. If only I had known what was waiting for me.

Titan reappeared like a ghost haunting me.

One look and I knew he recognized me. I never forgot him or what we shared. Those feelings that no one else knew existed between us.

I ignored them back then, but now they are more intense than ever.

โ€œGet on your kneesโ€ฆโ€ He demanded I kneel for him.

I tried to act like he didnโ€™t affect me, but he knew. He remembered the way I reacted when he would touch me. And just like he was taught to doโ€”he used my weaknesses against me.

He staked his claim, and I became his queen to use how he saw fit.

What makes it worse is that I crave him, and when I kneeled, it was willingly.

But was it for nothing?

Excerpt:

EMILEE
Titan steps up to me.
โ€œDonโ€™t โ€ฆโ€
โ€œLook who found her voice,โ€ he muses.
โ€œShut up, Titan.โ€ I snap, pulling my cell out of my pocket and dial Jasmineโ€™s number. It rings once, twice. Three times. I pull it from my ear, and he snatches it from my hand. โ€œHey โ€ฆโ€
His smile just widens. โ€œSo you do remember me.โ€
Like I could forget. โ€œGive me my phone back.โ€ I order reaching out for it.
He places it in the front pocket of his jeans. โ€œDrop to your knees.โ€
โ€œExcuse me?โ€ I blink.
His dark blue eyes look me up and down, and the corners of his lips turn up like he knows a secret. And he does. Several of them about me. โ€œDrop to your knees and Iโ€™ll give it back to you.โ€
My blood boils at his words. โ€œFuck you!โ€
He steps into me, pressing my back into my door, and I gasp in surprise. I thought he was big, but his hard chest presses into mine, and I have to tilt my head back to look him in the eyes. Even with my heels on, this man towers over me. I always liked that about him. Heโ€™s the tallest of all the Kings.
The scent of his cologne hits my nose, and I hate how much I like it. It brings back old memories that I want to drown in, but I make myself stay here in the present. The light pole I parked under casts a shadow over his chiseled face, making it glow like a ghost from my past.
โ€œWe came close that one time.โ€ His eyes go to my chest, and I know he can feel my heart pound against his. He reaches up and runs his knuckles over my neck. His skull ring burns the skin, making me shiver. โ€œSo fucking close. It was the only time I could actually tolerate you.โ€
โ€œTitan.โ€ I swallow, trying to calm my nerves.
โ€œYeah, Em?โ€ he asks as his eyes roam my face.
A fucking whimper comes out when he calls me by my old nickname. Then my breath quickens when he places his hands on my face, caging me in.
