“The Lucretias always take what they want. And that includes me.” Cayla was told she had nothing to fear from the Lucretias—at least, not more than anyone else in the city. Her aunt and uncle paid their tithes on time, looked the other way when witnessing crimes, and never caused any trouble. When the sirens blare at Cayla’s school, she knows that someone has crossed the Lucretias, and the crime family is there to take their vengeance. Huddled with her classmates, she waits for the inevitable to pass. Except when the Lucretias knock down the door to her own classroom, Jon Lucretia, heir to the dark dynasty, catches sight of Cayla—and decides to claim her as his own. Taken as a prisoner into their opulent and guarded estate, Cayla must decide how to fight for her life, and her heart.
