Publisher's Summary

Instead of handing me back to Lucian so Balto can get everything he wants, he keeps me. He pledges to fight for me until I'm free. But as the weeks pass, freedom isn't as appealing as it used to be. 

This place has become my home.

This man is my home.

I'm not sure if I'd ever want to leave...even if Lucian was dead.

FINALLY, 5 ⭐️ REVENGE, REDEMPTION & ROMANCE

A great ending to a fantastic trilogy.. over the three books in this series, Ms Sky has slowly managed to turn a cold, vicious, swoon-worthy Drug Lord anti-hero - with nothing but revenge, power and diamonds on his mind, into a fierce, possessive, protective, loving, loyal hero. And the woman who finally tames Balto the skull crusher went from being somebody’s unsuspecting pawn.. to Lucian’s unwilling bride.. to Balto’s cooped-up caring captive.. but Cassini wasn’t going to settle for anything less than being loved, stood firm, sacrificed, walked away from love, longingly dreamed of the perfect HEA future.. and eventually got the man.. and the ending she (and I) wanted most.

There’s action, suspense, lots of sex, smouldering undertones, wicked chemistry, emotional heartache and character growth as the ruthless alpha Skull King, who relentlessly denies love, slowly realizes that his title, his army of men and all his billions means absolutely nothing without the woman he loves. And that loving and loyal heroine with a sweet soul is just what he needs, will change Balto’s life forever and will show him how to love if only he’ll let her. However, standing in Balto and Cassini’s way is Lucian her evil Crime Lord husband with the third skull diamond Balto is desperate to have to complete his set.. and Lucian is demanding his property be returned and is willing to pay any price to get Cassini back. However, Balto knows Lucian wants to torture and punisher her, viciously wreck and ruin her and cold-bloodedly crucify and finally kill Cassini.. so will there be a truce, a trade.. or all out war?

Worth a credit? Yes, I love Ms Sky’s writing abilities, her romances that bloom from darkness, her smouldering, sexy, villainous anti-heroes and her slow-burning simmering passion-filled dual PoV plots.. and this five star trilogy certainly didn’t disappoint. I also love her choice in the perfect narrators to bring her stories and characters to life and Michael and Natalie did an awesome job.

Great ending to the series

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. As stated earlier, I still think all three books could have been combined into one book. Once a deal is made with Lucian, Balto drives Cassini back to him. On the way, he changes his mind. It is obvious what Lucian will do to her physically and will pass her around to his guards. Balto offers himself and, of course, Lucian accepts so he can kill him. OMG! This was really good.

Once again, Michael Ferraiuolo was awesome!

Good end to series

Glad the series ended the way it did. Now a spin-off featuring Heath would be nice. Narrators did a great job with characters. On to the next series!

Disappointed

Loved the story but hated it when you used a woman to talk for Balto. When the male voice over was used it was so sensual but when a woman was used the sensuality was lost. Do better!

Great ending

I thought this book was a fantastic ending to the series. There are some ups and downs and moments where I didn’t quite think things were going to work out between Balto and Cassini. But in the end the king truly finds his queen.

Not Her Usual 5 Star Book

I’m a huge fan of the author; however, this book didn’t do it for me. I’m very familiar with all the characters in her books, as well as the settings. I feel that this book lacked detail, steaming romance, and depth. It was bland. Again, I’m a huge fan of Penelope... and if you haven’t read many of her books- you should!

Not typical

I think this series has been one of my favorites. The ending reminded me of 50 Shades Freed. it is a little anticlimactic. while you kept waiting for something to happen the last few pages all you got was a romance that blossomed into a life neither character had pictured for themself.
