Disconnected, Crystal last heard her love's voice in the distance, and Yawha was yanked from the foyer of his father's home. The accuser is set to stand trial, yet everyone wonders where Yawha is. Truths are unmasked. Some who she thought would be in her corner, mainly her own sister, Sasha, gives her coldness. It seems as though it's royalty over loyalty.
Upset, Crystal is confused as to why there are so many people trying to protect her but there's not enough talk about Yawha, where he is or if he's even still alive. Among chasing the love of her life, Crystal is destined to stand trial against her supposed father-in-law, but not before all of the Kingsmen show their faces to show the pureblood human their support against rumors, harassment, and violet threats.

“You are not my property, Kylenna.”

My words trail off at Hojo’s slow shake of his head.
“You will remain with me.”
“But why? You can give me your protection, and I can live as I choose,” I explain.

I tilt my head. “Are you telling me I’m more than a bag of grain tossed in to close a deal?”
Hojo chuckles. “This can be whatever we envision it to be, Kylenna. It will bring changes, but it can also be pleasurable and sustaining, too.”
Why after years of wanting, wishing to be his, fate has chosen to step in, but not on my terms? I can't allow my heart to trick me into believing what I see in Hojo's eyes, what I feel while his body moves over mine is real. Yet, when he says, "I'll Die Without You" ...when I see him willing to take apart everything and everyone to love me, I wonder if I'm willing to sacrifice it all for love?
