About this ebook

The “heartstopping” conclusion to the USA Today bestselling White Monarch series.

I’ve become a queen to the forsaken, a leader to thieves, and the wife of a man who instills fear in all who cross his path. He was the husband I didn’t want. Now, I can’t fathom life without my king.

I should’ve been ready for anything. Like the caterpillar that feeds on poison during metamorphosis, I was raised in the dangerous world of cartel crime. But nothing could’ve prepared me for Cristiano de la Rosa, his brother’s poison, or the Calavera cartel.

This is still a story about a love strong enough to topple households, unite enemies, and divide brothers. Resilient enough to bring down those who would try to destroy it . . . and selfless enough to make the ultimate sacrifice.

But I was warned, and so were you. Death’s day always comes. This time, it will find what was once a caterpillar is now a butterfly—and hell hath no fury like the White Monarch.

Violent Triumphs is the most anticipated conclusion to the Monarch Series. If you're starting with this book, please stop and go to the beginning, Violent Delights. Where a soothsayer predicted that "I would die for the man I loved", and die I did! Ay, Dios Mio! Cristiano de la Rosa was dead! A gift from Belmonte-Ruiz, Mexico's human trafficking ring was sending a message and did they ever! However, they weren't counting on the caterpillar's transformation into the butterfly. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned or the White Monarch! So much betrayal, murder, and mayhem. There is a stairway to heaven or a highway to hell, and either one will take you where you need to go! Violent Triumphs was not the way I anticipated the story to end, but leave it to Jessica Hawkins to make my journey that much more intriguing. A journey, similar to one taken by Monarch butterflies, butterflies are free to fly, fly away!

This book is the third and final piece in Cristiano and Natalia's story. What an incredible journey this trilogy has taken readers on. This series has been an epic roller coaster ride that has tracks that not only lift you to the highest highs and drop you to the lowest lows but has twists and turns that take you into a hall of mirrors where things are not what they seem and then through the house of horrors where nail-biting tension and anxiety will become your constant companions. Natalia And Cristiano have stolen my heart and I have enjoyed every angst filled and heartachingly dramatic second in the evolution of their relationship. If you are looking for a series that will totally ensnare you in its web with a complex blend of intense emotions, stunning shockers and an all the feels inducing love story, then you need to grab book one and start reading right Now! Trust me, you will not be sorry.

The conclusion to the White Monarch series will have you gasping, cheering, throwing things, shocked to your core and praising Jessica Hawkins for her strides to tell a complete story in this series. Having gone through this series with Cristiano and Natalia, you know they have been on an angst filled ride to find each other. Our interest is piqued to the point of us readers screaming and yelling for a "lil somethin, somethin"! But Jessica is a master at the slow burn that keeps those embers from dying out. Seeing the character progression in Violent Triumphs will have you cheering on these characters. They are taking what they've learned in the previous two books and putting those lessons to WORK. We get to see Natalia coming into her own as a feisty Queen and even though she still has doubts of her own mindset; you know that she's honestly coming to these conclusions on her own. And using her power to come into her self. It's refreshing to see a character's full progression and one of my favorite things to read in any series. Most everyone will move to a Cristiano point here, about his masculine power, his dirty talk. That's been heralded to the point you know it. What I want to mention is the progression of Jessica Hawkins. Having been around for a few years as a devoted reader of Jessica's, I've seen her angst, her heart string pulling stories. I've followed her on social media and seen some sneak peeks of inspiration and the teases of the beginning of the White Monarch series. Reading this finale and knowing how she retold some of those aspects and made a new story created in a whole different world. It's just incredibly inspiring to say the least. She has limitless talent as a writer and storyteller. She wove certain aspects of her favorite things into this story, but in a new, modern and refreshed way. I had nothing to do with this story and nothing to do with Jessica's talent, but I cannot help but feel like a proud reader to be able to come along on this ride with her. You can tell she poured her love and heart and soul onto these pages and I thank her for letting us in!
