Spider is a family man down to his core. He’s spent his life trying to live up to the expectations of being the future king of the Spider tribe. Now that his tattoo’s gone dark—it’s time to find his queen. Only he’s got cousins he needs to get down from trees, long-lost relatives popping out of the woodwork, a shady construction company cheating his people of their land, and a queen who’s more designer than she is redneck.
Sugar, and spice, and everything nice …
Chantelle is a Beaumont. Through and through. Or at least that’s the image she’s taught herself to project to the world. More than anything, though, she wants a family, a home, and for her king to show her there’s more to living than working and trying to be someone she’s not. More than this, she needs to believe in herself and that she has something to offer as queen.
Chantelle and Spider might start off rocky but they both know that the steady in life doesn’t come easy. Steady comes when two people are together and showing each other that home isn’t a place, work isn’t your life, and what they offer each other goes deeper than material things. The real steady, as both Spider and Chantelle have learned, is in laughter and antics and knowing to your soul that the person you’re with is your home.
