[Mature content] *No rape*
Despite her uninterest, Madeline Harris is dragged to the Hawthorne’s annual masquerade ball along with her older sister in order to find rich husbands. Madeline gives her best effort to spend the evening unnoticed by anyone, but a silver-masked stranger returns her missing handkerchief before requesting to dance with her. After spending the rest of the evening evading his eager, and arguably aggressive, approach, she returns home only to have a betrothal letter from the King arrive at her house the next day.

Enter his Royal Highness Calhoun Hawthrone, the narcissistic and self-obsessed despot of the entire Devon land, the silver-masked stranger, a man who never takes no for an answer because he never had to.

Coerced into agreeing to a union with the most selfish and evil man she has ever met, will Madeline find a way to escape his clutches and marry the tailor of her dreams before living the simple life she always desired? Or must she accept becoming the wife and queen of a man who treats people as things?


"Your bed is cold," spoke a voice in the room that had her eyes go wide in fear. Nervously, she turned around, gulping softly to see a shadow on her bed as if someone laid down there. The man who had been lying down sat up emerging out from the shadows where he had been waiting for her.

"What are you doing here?" she asked when his feet touched the ground and he pushed himself up to start walking towards her. His handsome features looked darker than usual because of the lack of light in the room.

"I came to meet you," he tilted his head, "Where did you go?"

"I went out for a walk," came the quick reply that had him smile, a smile that scared her the most.

She took a step back when he came close to her. It didn't stop him from cornering her, and her back hit the wall behind her. He raised his hand towards her face, and she closed her eyes, scared. She shuddered when his fingers trail down from her temple and her jaw and neck. Her blonde hair was left open.

"In the middle of the night?" she didn't answer him knowing he could decipher her lies through her words. He stepped closer that had her turn her face away from him and his words vibrated on the skin of her neck,

"Did you go to meet him, my sweet girl?"

    okay, I LOVED this book, it kept me literally at the edge of my seat from all the plot twists and great writing .. But I did stop reading at ch562 because supposedly the story ended right? - and god I wish the ending was written differently - anyway my question is, is the second volume set in the past ? or should I keep reading?

    After reading this continously for the past 2 days, I can say that at chapter 478, I'll be stopping for a while and wait for the next update so I can binge read again. When the author say it's slow burn, IT REALLY IS. they got married at around 370, bruh so many things happened. from getting married to where I am now, it's just days. Also I can't accept the arc where Spoiler Alert the sister becomes good and rafael dies for beth to achieve a full character development. He does not deserve it. I think they should've let the sister die instead to somewhat compensate for everything she did.

    I read till Chap 205 and this is really really slow burn Romance - too slow for my taste. Aside from the romance not much else happened - e.g. conflict b/t kingdoms, court intrigue, adventure etc. Just 2 people annoying each other. The story picks up after this and then gets interesting. If you are not into slow burn romance, just skip ahead and read from 200 onwards. The translation is good compared to other novels I have read.

    Just started the novel and I'm still in chapter 131 but I absolutely hate Calhoun (sorry all Calhoun fans). Now I'm reading the novel bit by bit so that I'm not overwhelmed by anger by the sheer selfishness of the guy. I wish I found him funny but all he's been doing is raising my blood pressure. I love Sophie though and her interaction with Calhoun . Their back and forth is the only thing I've enjoyed so far. Also the pacing is hella slow, don't know if that's a good thing. I've read 131chapters but in the novel only one week has passed.

      All you have to know is that it is a wonderful and enthusiastic novel, it begins with the heroine's hatred of the hero, and then you will love him, romantic and also contains enthusiastic fights and conflicts and the most important thing is many secrets that we reveal about the characters, you will be shocked in every chapter you read

    Where I’m at in the story Beth can go suck it. Hopefully she changes and/or grows cause she needs a lot of development right now
