His family dared to challenge mine, so I am going to ruin them … starting with stealing his bride.
Only a cold-hearted villain would destroy an innocent bride's special day over a business deal gone bad ….
Which is why I choose this precise moment to disrupt New York High Society's most anticipated wedding of the sea-son.
As I am Luc Manwarring, II, billionaire heir to one of the most powerful families in the country, no one is brave enough to stop me.
My revenge plan is deceptively simple: humiliate the groom, then blackmail the bride's family into coercing the bride into marrying me instead.
My ruthless calculations do not anticipate my reluctant bride having so much fight and fire in her.
At every opportunity, she resists my dominance and control, even going so far as trying to escape my dark plans for her.
She is only supposed to be a means to an end, an unwilling player in my game of revenge.
But the more she challenges me, the more I begin to wonder… who is playing who?
Tearing off the gilded veneer of elite privilege exposes the sordid scandals, dark secrets and taboo desires of New York's jaded high society in this dark romance series from best friends and USAT Bestselling authors Zoe Blake and Alta Hensley, writing under their new pen name, Blake Hensley.
