I’m the head of my crime family—they call me the King of Torture. I never show mercy. Never show weakness.
I am the furthest thing from a decent man. Everything good and pure was leached out of me long ago.
Evil permeates every aspect of my life.
But then, battered, bruised, and limping, a gorgeous woman half my age runs toward my compound. Towards me –– not realizing she is running to the man who could usurp the devil.
Yet she looks at me like I am her salvation. My entire being roars that she is meant for me. The only woman who could love a monster.
Now I will stop at nothing to make her mine.
about the author
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Anya grew up listening to Cardinals baseball and reading anything she could get her hands on. She remembers her mother saying if only she would read the right type of books instead binging her way through the romance aisles at the bookstore, she’d have been a doctor. While Anya never did get that doctorate, she graduated cum laude from the University of Missouri-St. Louis with an M.A. in History.
Anya is a bestselling and award-winning author published in multiple fiction genres. She also writes urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and contemporary romance under the name Maggie Mae Gallagher. A total geek at her core, when she is not writing, she adores attending the latest comic con or spending time with her family. She currently lives in the Midwest with her two furry felines.
