Recommended for 18+ The Cinderella story that captured the world … From poverty to glittering wealth overnight, Natalie must learn to handle sudden international stardom. The sight of her own face on every major magazine across the world leaves her baffled – and terrified of someone learning the truth. Isolated from her friends and family in Elijah’s world, she must do the impossible and convince everyone she’s in love with a man who stirs her blood yet scares her with his need for control – even knowing that living this lie means she loses everything when it’s over. Elijah finds his possessiveness of his new toy turning from sheer lust into something much deeper, something that stirs the dark memories of his past and reminds him why he can never, ever fall in love. The harder he fights what he feels, the more compelled to Natalie he is, and the more difficult it becomes to protect her from the past he can never reveal, one that would both endanger her and drive her away. Together yet apart, lovers without being friends, neither can see what’s in front of them and both are left wondering: when did lying become so hard? Written under my pen name, SE Reign.
