The deal was sealed the moment she stepped onto that stage. It was like seeing a ghost: sunshine-blonde hair, pale skin, azure eyes that held a thousand secrets. I didn’t know what caused her to end up on that auction block, and I didn’t care. All I knew was that I had to have her—no matter the cost. A million dollars later, she became mine. Mine to break. Mine to use. Mine to keep. *This standalone novel contains dark themes, including those involving sex and violence—but, as always, there’s a happily ever after and no cheating.
