I broke my promise the minute I saw her.
Not in the way you probably think, though. It wasn’t a promise to take care of her because it was love at first sight. It was a promise to let her know, to let her know just what happened …
Yes, she was beautiful, perfect really, but what I saw made her ugly. So, I broke my promise because she didn’t deserve to know.
And then I took her because she deserved to suffer the way I had—emotionally. Alone even when surrounded by people. Lonesome for eternity.
She’d be my wife so she could live beside me, never finding love but only the indifference and hate I bestowed upon her. Who would want that kind of life by choice? Who would want to shackle themselves to a scarred man—both physically and mentally? I didn’t give her a choice. I gave her an ultimatum, and she couldn’t refuse. And I vowed she’d live a lonely life with a husband right beside her.
That’s the thing about vows … Sometimes, they are broken. And promises? Sometimes, you manage to keep them even when you don’t want to.

About the Author
I'm a bookworm, naturally. I've been writing all my life, from cheesy poems in elementary school to short stories and even fan fictions. I love reading almost as much as I love writing, but I love my family even more. I have the most supportive husband, the best parents, in-laws who root for me, and a my sister is my muse. She rejects or approves of literally every chapter I write. It's thanks to all of them and my fans that I keep doing what I do.

Man the emotions this book pulled out of me was such a wide range I felt like I had whiplash. He was a monster in looks and actions but truly beneath it all he was a man in pain hiding behind his scars. Death and loss had changed him and he allowed his emotions to take him to a dark place, making ugly decisions. But this author shows us all things done in anger, or in his case when dealing with grief, acting out in revenge doesn’t always turn out bad. She hadn’t known the kindness he showed or the man he really was but he didn’t scare her. The more she learned about him the more things changed. When things change, when what was fake becomes real, when the vows are tested, what’s real remains. This author did a masterful job of bringing these two together and working out their stuff. The emotional level of this book is high and gets higher with the twist, I loved every bit of it.
