Clandestine Royal by Gigi Thorne
New royal novella from Gigi Thorne.
Suffering due to sins of the father is typically how it goes, but as the son of a predatory and entitled mother, I’d fallen victim to the consequences of her indiscretions.
Her deathbed confession revealed my darkest secret. At my lowest point, I shared it with the two people I trusted the most.
It proved to be my biggest mistake.
For the last five years, I’d watched the woman I love reign with a man I despised. He stole my life, she allowed it, and I was about to make them both pay.
The only way to bring down a king is by stealing his queen.
Five long years without a single look my way. Luke believed that I’d betrayed him and I’d suffered in silence while he’d torn me apart with his playboy ways.
Set on vengeance, he refused my truth but not without doling out punishment I couldn’t resist. Little did he know I had plans of my own—if he’d only let me get close enough.
