The plan was always to kill Remy Toussaint.
The former dark prince is now the King of Dumonte and Queen Fleur of Islaigneâ€™s husband. Theyâ€™ve been in a dungeon cell together. Theyâ€™ve escaped a sinking pirate ship. Andâ€”because Fleur had no other choiceâ€”theyâ€™ve consummated their marriage.
But when Guillame Dubois reappears after Fleur thought heâ€™d abandoned her, he has a plan to get Fleur all of Remyâ€™s power. She could start fires herself, and no uncle or carale or any man could hurt her. Ever again.
But taking Remyâ€™s power will kill him.
Itâ€™s worth it. Fleur will do whatever it takes to get that magic.
Itâ€™s only that when Remy smiles, he looks so much younger and more vulnerable than he usually does. Itâ€™s only that Remy saves those smiles for Fleur. Itâ€™s only thatâ€¦
It doesnâ€™t matter.
Sheâ€™ll kill him.
