I’m different. I know I'm different because of my royal bloodline.
Betrayed by my brothers, I’m still bound to my kingdom.
Betrayed by my magical lover, I have a secret burden to bear.
The last thing I wanted was to deal with was Oliver –
The person responsible for my current torment.
Having been captured by him during a heist,
I'm now little more than his prisoner.
The last time I saw him, I thought he would become my mate.
Nearly a decade later, and that primal attraction is still there.
I would never call him my lost love.
More like the secret romance that never was .
I know that he can never be mine now –
Especially after learning he’s a rare shifter –
I could accept that I’m cursed to nurse a broken heart,
But fate appears to demand still more from me.
