I’ve wrecked myself a thousand times over to protect those I love. And I’d do it all again for her…
My family believes I’m cold and cruel, that I care only for myself. They don’t know how filthy my hands are from the bloody deeds of my past, the price I paid to keep them safe. And not just them.
River Lin was the one dream I allowed myself in the midst of my loneliness. I’ve protected her and kept my distance all these years, trying to make up for killing her father.
Now, she’s my only hope to save my family from a curse that will destroy them. Bringing her into my life, is dangerous. Loving her is even worse.
Because I know I’ll ruin her like everyone else in my life. But when she looks at me as if I could be redeemed it’s impossible to resist falling into that pretty, little lie.
