What Jayce doesn't know, however, is that Arabella isn't just the enemy - she's the woman who once broke Xander's heart. But even though he's never forgiven her betrayal, he can’t bring himself to kill the woman he once asked to marry him. Questioning Xander's loyalty, Jayce puts forth a deadly ultimatum: kill Arabella or Xander is next on his list. Someone has to die, and it's up to Xander to choose who.

Arabella is utterly phenomenal. Intelligent, ruthless, ambitious, heartbroken, hurting, full of love and pain and ultimately one of the strongest and most complex heroines I’ve had the pleasure of reading.
