About this ebook

I'm the bastard child, son to the mistress, my father's backup heir to the Kingston empire. He sent me to Harvard. I left and became a Navy SEAL, but I'm back now, and I finished school on my own dime. I'm now the right hand man to Grayson Bennett, the billionaire who runs the Bennett Empire. I'm now a few months from being a billionaire myself. I don't need my father's company or his love. My "brother" can have it. I will never go back there. I will never be the mistake my father made, the way he was the mistake my mother made.

And then she walks in the door, the princess I'd once wanted more than I'd wanted my father's love. She wants me to come back. She says my father needs to be saved. I don't want to save my father but I do want her. Deeply. Passionately. More than I want anything else.

But she's The Princess and I'm The Bastard. We don't fit. We don't belong together and yet she says he needs me, that she needs me. We're like sugar and spice, we don't mix, but I really crave a taste. Just one. What harm can just one taste do?

I just get SO annoyed when im reading a book and the file ends less than half way through. And while I understand that its all about setting up a cliffhanger in order to sell more books its high frustrating and deceptive. If anything is going to STOP me buying the next partial story its an experience like this. A trilogy is 3 related or sequential books. Not 3 x 1/3 books.

Intriguing story. Harper and Eric were opposites in how they perceived their family dynamics. Neither truly trusted their parents, but Harper still had hope for a better outcome. Eric just dumped them and made a better life for himself, though his world was always colored by his hatred. Together, Harper and Eric were scorching, but they could not seem to stop hurting each other. Feelings were made clear but not trusted. I will now have to get The Princess to continue with their story.
