My father gave me to him as a bargaining chip, as though I was nothing more than flesh to be traded. I hate him for that, and I hate the man who took me: Javier Santiago, a ruthless member of the violent Latin Kings.
Even though I don’t want to belong to him, he is fiercely possessive. He’ll do whatever it takes to stake his claim and keep me safe, including forcing me to marry him.
When his ownership is threatened, his enemies aren’t the only ones to suffer. He says my freedom is the price for my safety. I think he just wants me all for himself.
