I forget everything but him. How can I not? He owns me. That was my fear, but I don’t feel fear now. No fear at all. But there are other emotions, a swell of unnamed emotions overwhelming me. We’re in his territory, his home, the danger and darkness of this night, driving confessions and intimacy to a whole new level. “I’m not just going to fuck you, Harper,” Eric promises. “I’m going to make love to you.” 
 
Love.
 
I spoke that word to him, so hearing it on his lips shouldn’t send shockwaves through me, but somehow it does. It shouldn’t make my chest expand with fear that I didn’t feel moments before, but it does. I both want him to love me and fear the moment he does. With love comes real pain when he tells me to walk away and gives me a shove when he doesn’t really follow, because he decides the bastard and the princess can’t survive. 
 
My walls erect. I need to protect myself. “What happened to fucking the princess and leaving her behind?”
 
“We just had this conversation. I’m not leaving you again.”
 
“And yet you told me to leave.”
 
“I did,” he says. “But I’m a bastard, remember? And not just any bastard. I’m the one who wants you too damn much now to do what’s right. You run. I’ll run faster. I’ll come for you.”
 
Heat rushes up my neck. “Fucking me is safe,” I whisper. “Fucking me is—”
 
“Fucking you is perfect,” he says. “And I will fuck you, Harper. Every way I can think of and every day, but right now, I’m going to show you more than the bastard. I’m going to make love to you.” His lips part mine, his tongue stroking deep, stroking long, exploring, and the demand I’d felt in him when he’d snapped is nowhere to be found. There is just this sultry, sexy, caress of his tongue that seduces me and tears down my walls. 
 
I am his to do with as he pleases. I am his to please or otherwise. I think he really will break my heart. I think he knows it, too, but it’s too late to turn back. We’re on a path together that must be traveled, no matter where it leads.

"This is our time, but that doesn't mean that we'll end up together. What is meant to be might be the end of us, and that thought has me throwing caution to the wind."

The Bastard and the Princess are about to do me in. The secrets and suspense are escalating and the answers are few and far between. Just as I think I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel a train starts heading my way and it's dark again. I want to throw my Kindle, but I need it to finish this nerve-wracking mind-bending story. Did I mention that I'm loving it? It's no secret that the author likes to mess with her reader's heads with twists and turns and surprises that keep us coming back again and again.

The connection between Eric and Harper is undeniable. But they are keeping secrets from each other as they try to determine who can be trusted while attempting to stay alive. Danger is on the horizon and its true victim is not exactly clear. The clues are not crystal and the villain has not identified him or herself. They want to trust each other, but they've both been betrayed too many times to go in blindly.

One thing that is crystal clear is the passion that blazes between them. Their minds might question but their bodies have all the answers. "If you want to forbid me, do it while you're naked. I'll listen a whole lot better."

Yes, I knew going in that this was a trilogy, so of course it ends with a cliffhanger. I crack myself up every time I go in knowing this and still manage a WTF? face when I tap the last page to turn it and there are no more pages to turn. Of course, I have to try several times, just to make sure. Oh well, I needed a potty break anyway. This damn story had me so riveted I refused to put it down. I'll be here, ready and waiting for the time I can get my grabby hands on The Empire which is the final book in the Filthy Trilogy. The line forms here...
