Ice queens can’t be hurt because they have no feelings. They also can’t fall in love…or so they tell themselves.
Lady Daniella couldn’t really have been in love with Lord Callen. Not after her father announced her betrothal to the crowned prince, and certainly not after Callen left to fight for their kingdom without so much as a word of farewell.
Then the prince ends their betrothal.
But Daniella’s happiness is short-lived. The Duke of Westlake has been murdered, the culprit has yet to be found, and Westlake lands need oversight… at least until Callen comes home to become the next duke. Not that Daniella wants to see him again. Ever. Nor does she want a second chance at love. Or so she tells herself.
After years of fighting ghouls, vampires, and other abominations, Callen thinks it can’t get worse. Then his brother is murdered, making Callen the new Duke of Westlake. The only bright spot is the woman he’s been in love with for half his life is no longer betrothed to the crowned prince. And Lady Daniella’s at his castle to oversee Westlake lands until he returns. The gods have given him a second chances at love, and he won’t waste it.
But not everyone wants Callen and Daniella to have a second chance.
Someone in the shadows is watching them. Someone who’s already killed once to buy silence. Someone who will force Callen and Daniella to choose whether love will be what defeats them or the only thing that could save them… if only they will let it.
