From Wall Street Journal bestsellers L.J. Shen and Parker S. Huntington comes an explosive marriage of inconvenience...between a tarnished Romeo and a reluctant Juliet.
It was supposed to be a harmless kiss at a lavish debutante ball. A clandestine moment with a handsome stranger.
But unlike his namesake, my Romeo isn't driven by love. He's fueled by revenge.
To him, I'm a chess piece. Leverage. His rival's betrothed.
To me, he is a man deserving of poison. A dark prince I refuse to marry.
He thinks I'll accept my fate. Well, I plan to rewrite it.
And in my story, Juliet doesn't die. But Romeo? He perishes.
