Publisher's Summary

Book Two in the USA Today best-selling White Monarch trilogy. Complete series available now.

The devil has a name, and it’s Cristiano de la Rosa. On my wedding day, he was the last man I expected to see standing at the altar. But he plans to make me his queen — unless his brother can rescue his princess.

Getting Cristiano to lose control becomes the name of the game, and the stakes are life and death. But as truth and lies blur, loyalty is tested, and our chemistry threatens to reach the melting point, the prize grows less clear. Either freedom no longer means what I think it does, or Cristiano is as devious as everyone says, and he’s mastered the art of playing my mind.

All I know for certain is that nothing is certain. And all you need to know?

This is a love story. But even love stories have to end.

OMG... I want Cristiano to lose control...

So the story begins with the two married by force...

The book is about their relationship... back and forth with lies, misunderstandings, revelations...

The narration is getting better... but the female voice is still annoying at times. Can't say I like it. Brian's voice is amazing.

This book is NOT a hot hot series... on the hotness chart... it's a blah

If you are looking for a romance that changes from hate to ??... then this is the book for you.

Loved it!

Kept my interest throughout and loved the male character lead. The cartels being part of the plot made me a little wary, but the author was true to form about their existence. The love interests was powerful especially on the side of the hero.

FROM THE STORY LINE TO THE NARRATORS, A+++++++++++

I read the mixed reviews on this book (and series as a whole) but was tired of scrolling books and decided to take my chances. I was not disappointed and in fact binge listened to all 3 books in this series in 4 days. I actually bought my own credits to purchase the last book, that is how much I was in love with the story and needed to hear the ending.

Some of the story line is a tad unrealistic and extravagant but it just stands to pull you further into the story. I loved escaping from my mundane life to hear of luxury and power, suspense and passion. Parts of this series actually had me talking out loud to myself willing the character to listen to what I had to say. The twist and turns and unknowns are nonstop. It was just the refresh and mental exercise I needed.

I am VERY picky with narration. These narrators are spot on. They are clear, easy to understand but have such a quality to their voices. ESPECIALLY Cristiano's!!! MmmmMmmm! Take the chance on this series, you will not be disappointed!

I expected more

This series is moving slower than I expected in romance wise but it’s exciting and the end was horrifying. Jumping to book 3!

Getting good

Getting good and getting better! Natalia still makes me want to slap her sometimes but there’s maturity and progress going on for her. Cristiano is so cryptic, Im with Natalia about that LOL.

Narration is still good. Now unto book 3....

OH JESSICA.. IT’S WAY W-A-A-A-Y BEYOND 5 ⭐️

I’m just trying to calm myself down after the high of listening to this refreshingly unique, complex, layered, spectacularly twisted well-named story.. because the violent heart-stopping blow at the end had me desperately clinging on to its cliff ledge as the floor beneath my feet suddenly got brutally ripped away. Jessica, in this story you made them tumble, stumble, fall and fall. You slowly turned a sinner into a saint, you turned a naive twenty year old pawn princess into a much stronger more resourceful version of herself with deeper understanding of the ‘bigger picture’ and what’s been motivating Cristiano. You revealed, concealed and made my heart hunt for the right answers instead of assumptions. But you side-swiped me too and left me alone reeling in the middle of catastrophe screaming for more.

I know twenty yr old Natalia isn’t there yet and she’s a long way off declaring undying love, I know thirty-four yr old Cristiano is desperately still seeking the who, how and why’s of the murder he was wrongly blamed for.. and I know you’ve got a mountainous terrain of obstacles ahead for these two interesting characters to climb.. and I’m drooling with gleeful anticipation at what’s to come. However, you’ve already given so much more than I’d ever hoped for.. with their feisty angsty banter, their magnetic smouldering chemistry, Cristiano’s deliciously dirty mouth and possessiveness.. and even sexy scenes in their still unconsummated marriage. Thankfully lust, animal magnetism, care and the dawning of truth have produced new seedlings of trust, loyalty and understanding which have broken the barren waste-ground of their scorched relationship and has tentatively brought unity. However, with that OMG of an ending, who knows what layered delights you’ve got in store for these two next.

I bought this book, looked and longingly lingered over it for a while before actually starting its very addictive well-everythinged chapters because I reeeeally didn’t want to get to its cliffy end and was holding out for book 3. But, when its lure became too strong, I hit play and barely breathed in case I missed something.. rarely paused as the angsty emotional drama unfurled and intensified.. and squarely braced my heart for what lies ahead. Told mainly from Natalia’s PoV with a couple or three from Cristiano’s - and Emma Wilder’s fantastic inflective narration and believable male voice brought the story and its colorful characters to life and made it (imo) a simply outstanding listen.

Worth a credit? Absolutely yes.. it was nearly 11 blissful hours of highs, lows and in-betweens. 11 insightful hours where some of the missing pieces were located and learned. Character’s emotions and personalities were mapped and moulded. The lines of sexual tension hummed, grew in intensity and held firm. New horizons were glimpsed, gleaned and gazed into. Secret plans were highlighted, revealed and brought to the forefront. And then villainous darkness descended over everything when blood was shed in the violent end.

Love Cristiano

I’m not quite sure on how I feel about book 2. I really enjoyed reading book 1 and couldn’t wait for book 2, but I was sort of disappointed. Overall I enjoyed it. I did love Cristiano and his patience with Natalia, but I could not stand Natalia and all her doubts. She was very annoying. This book also felt like it was dragging and nothing was happening other then hearing Natalia’s doubts. The ending of the book is the only reason I can’t wait for book 3.

oooooookkkkk

I thought this one would be better than the first. I liked the first one don't get me wrong but I thought maybe it was character building and stuff and then the second book would give us more intrigue and steam.... Nope. definitely disappointed. This book was more of the same and just droned on until the end finally something exciting happened and CLIFFHANGER. I won't be purchasing the third book because of that.

great story but..

I am loving the series so far. I have finished book 2 in less than 24 hours. however the main character Natalia, was effing annoying. there were so many times I kept talking to myself wishing I could just shut her up. while she does have some growth she is still annoying, stubborn, and spoiled. She is the perpetual victim, whoa is me type. it was hard to finish due to her parts but I made it. now on to the last book.
