They thought she was unsuitable as a bride because she was mute.
I thought that made her perfect.
I could pretend she didn’t even exist.
I’ve been promised to the Irish.
My father will kill me if I refuse, just like he killed my mother six months ago.
His merciless ambitions stole the light from her eyes and silenced me in the process.
I haven’t spoken a word since her death.
That didn’t stop Conner Reid from choosing me to be his bride.
He threatens my composure and intoxicates my senses.
He represents everything I hate in this world yet summons my darkest cravings.
I can’t escape him.
The worst part is, I’m not sure I want to.
Because my life is in danger, and Conner may be the only man who can save me.
