Summary

[Mature content] *No rape*
Despite her uninterest, Madeline Harris is dragged to the Hawthorne’s annual masquerade ball along with her older sister in order to find rich husbands. Madeline gives her best effort to spend the evening unnoticed by anyone, but a silver-masked stranger returns her missing handkerchief before requesting to dance with her. After spending the rest of the evening evading his eager, and arguably aggressive, approach, she returns home only to have a betrothal letter from the King arrive at her house the next day.

Enter his Royal Highness Calhoun Hawthrone, the narcissistic and self-obsessed despot of the entire Devon land, the silver-masked stranger, a man who never takes no for an answer because he never had to.

Coerced into agreeing to a union with the most selfish and evil man she has ever met, will Madeline find a way to escape his clutches and marry the tailor of her dreams before living the simple life she always desired? Or must she accept becoming the wife and queen of a man who treats people as things?

"Your bed is cold," spoke a voice in the room that had her eyes go wide in fear. Nervously, she turned around, gulping softly to see a shadow on her bed as if someone laid down there. The man who had been lying down sat up emerging out from the shadows where he had been waiting for her.

"What are you doing here?" she asked when his feet touched the ground and he pushed himself up to start walking towards her. His handsome features looked darker than usual because of the lack of light in the room.

"I came to meet you," he tilted his head, "Where did you go?"

"I went out for a walk," came the quick reply that had him smile, a smile that scared her the most.

She took a step back when he came close to her. It didn't stop him from cornering her, and her back hit the wall behind her. He raised his hand towards her face, and she closed her eyes, scared. She shuddered when his fingers trail down from her temple and her jaw and neck. Her blonde hair was left open.

"In the middle of the night?" she didn't answer him knowing he could decipher her lies through her words. He stepped closer that had her turn her face away from him and his words vibrated on the skin of her neck,

"Did you go to meet him, my sweet girl?"

    I love this story, so many unexpected things happen that you end up with an expression of shock. I like Elizabeth very much, I hope she can become someone better, just as she is trying now. Perfect story!

    Love the characters in this story. It has captivated my attention from the very beginning. I am on the edge of my seat waiting to see how this story ends. Great writer and storyteller.

    I am of the opinion that Cal's gonna do what Cal's gonna do. Fine, whatever. But with the exception of Maddie's grandparents (whom I adore) everyone is just going along what this mad king wants. I don't even hate Calhoun at this point, man's is so crazy he don't even realize how fucked up he is frfr. Lucy tho???? BETH?! omgggggggg they said stuff that nearly made me faint, it was so incredulous...Madeline is the WORST offender tho, she prolly crazy toooo

        Friend, she was all 'please try to understand my brother, he and i grew up in a different environment. deep...deeep down, he's a good man' if calhoun heard that he woulda said SIKE. The world probably sneezed when she said that. All the gods and demons got together and threw a 'Lucy is crazy' party. Pigs flew when she said that. Like c'mon Lucy....

        You would understand if you were her. People persuade themselves like this when they have no other options. She’s a girl with no special power. She has no one besides herself. No one will protect her if she just leaves the castle. Not to mention that she doesn’t know how to do anything to feed herself. It’s a better option if she persuades herself that her brother is good so she can live her life. Her reaction was normal from someone powerless like herself even if it was wrong.

        If she said anything else I woulda been cool with it. Something like 'this is just the way the world works when you're a woman. Worse, when it comes to Calhoun. Better to assimilate in your circumstances as I have'. And! As much as Rosamund and Sophie are wicked as hell they still make moves! As much as i hate em...I like that in my court ladies.

I looooveeee Calhoun and Maddie relationship!! I want to know more about Lucy and Theo as well. Its pretty romantic and I love how powerful they are and how they always support each other. If you review before reading most of it, their past history and how they really are so menat for each other is amazing.

it was slow at first but the author made it interesting. now, it's too fast-paced and the storytelling became bland as the author made the dialogs too chessy and cringey.

I found the first chapters boring and slow, I went on but couldn't get past the 60th chapter. The male character is a sociopathic narcissist and the girl is just plain stupid. on the other hand the writing is so bad that any fanfic is better than this. .

why the fuck people romanticized kidnapping and abuse, whether it’s emotional or power or maybe even physical abuse IS completely wrong. and the FL is so dumb and weak lol can people stop making stories like this. it’s so bad and i don’t understand how others love the ML and defending him on everything (u guys need therapy lol)

This is one of my favorite novels!💯 I love the plot! Calhoun 💕 is such a cool bad guy and I dream about how sexy & beguiling his is!😍 I don’t know why people don’t like Madeline; she’s a sheltered young (or not so young) girl, who doesn’t know much about the world! I really like her character development throughout the story! But that Beth, tho... she’s the worst!💯 I don’t think I’ll ever like her, no matter how much she changes for the better! And, when are ALL of the Wilmonts going to die off, especially Rosemand? LOL Alas, how the mighty have fallen!! 😆

The ML is one of the most annoying character I have ever read. He's selfish, inconsiderate, insensitive, liar in short...he has the worst personality. I don't think I will ever like this character even if I continue reading this. His face doesn't match his personality. 😒
I hope the FL is more feisty.
As much as I want that they don't end up together. I know it will not happen because this is romance novel and they are the MCs.

I couldn't take it anymore, I just had to. The book is so worth it to read that I just had to make an account and write a review so people will give it a chance as well.

For those who find it boring obviously can't handle the slow burn. IT IS TORTOUSLY SLOW, and I can't bottle the pent up excitement I have after reading every chapter. Yes, the male lead is evil. I've read similar stories with the same personalities but the writer gives us the perfect epitome of "sweet and evil," I can't get enough of our ML. Compared to other stories with force relationships, our ML not only forced(lol) but knows to give time bc he knows, he loves, and he actually cares for our FL, and the writer does an amazing job of letting us know. I CANT WAIT FOR HIM TO TAKE HER TO BED As much as I hate it, I also love their conversations *chef kisses* You can't help but love and hate him at the same time 'cause of his smart snarky cheeky mouth UGH! UGH AND IM ONLY AT CHAPTER 150

The is good. Plot twist but not heavy. Love the romance. First I felt sad for the female lead, but then I envy her a lot. The male lead was so in love with her, so he do anything to keep her by his side. Need more. Please update early. And thank you for the translator for your hardwork. I appreciate it a lot. Please be healthy

Se você gosta de um ML gato e sedutor, inteligente e manipulador, ciumento e possessivo, que só se importa realmente com a FL, acho que você vai gostar da dinâmica dessa LN.
