"You can't be a queen in a crumbled kingdom..."
Even as Teddy’s child grows in my belly, I feel myself locked in the jaws of grief I can’t escape. But I can’t allow my emotions to distract me. A very real threat lurks in the shadows, eagerly waiting for me to let my guard down for even an instant. Cameron is out there somewhere—and it’s only a matter of time before he finds me. Lucas vowed to protect me, yet with each fluttering kick I feel, I’m reminded that I’m more vulnerable than ever.
Charlie was a liability to the family. But as the right hand to the mafia king, it wasn’t my job to question such things. I trusted Teddy and gave him the loyalty and respect he deserved. He ordered me to keep her safe, and that’s what I did. I never meant to fall for her, but with him gone, I will honor my word by keeping Charlie and his unborn child safe... no matter what it takes.
