The Petrov Family is known for being cold and ruthless.
They only have one concern—power.
Mikail became King of the Petrov Vampires for a reason.
No one crosses him.
If they do, they live to regret it.
It has long been known throughout the family that Gabriella is his fated mate.
She was groomed for that role from the beginning.
Yet, her family worried because Gabriella was all wrong.
Instead of being fair and golden, she has hair as red as the fires of hell with freckles brushed over her curvy figure.
Then there are her mismatched eyes—one calm blue, one the brightest of greens.
Gabriella's family ridiculed her over her looks and gave her the nickname, the ugly halfling.
It hurt and shamed her. Oh, how she wished she had just half the beauty her sister's had.
There was nothing she could do to change it and it made her worry over what would happen when she she was finally presented to the King.
Would he find her just as distasteful?
When Mikail rejects her and sends her to live in his fortress alone, her worst fears come true.
She sinks into despair with her mate's rejection.
But all is not what it seems and danger lurks at every corner.
Will Mikail become the mate she's always dreamed of, or is he truly the monster she's been warned about?
