A Beauty So Cruel
I was a beauty, a stray orphan until the king took me as his hostage.
Once upon a time…
A Don by the name of Vlad Vitalli ruled New York.
He’s a mafia man. The leader of one of the five ruling families, La Cosa Nostra. He’s a monster. A trained killer and a cold-blooded murderer. Tall, mysterious, with icy gray eyes, and he rarely smiles. His smile was made to fool any girl. One look and you’re doomed. He’s ruthless, arrogant, dangerous, and wants to kill her.
Dahlia was the wrong person at the wrong time.
Just an innocent. The mafia has rules: no witnesses left behind. It’s all blood and games to him. To save her life, she made a deal with the beast. She handed herself to the cruelest man in the kingdom. Maybe if he likes her, he’ll hate her less.
Vlad wasn’t planning on touching her. It was supposed to be an easy kill. She’s an orphan. No one would have missed her. Just as he was about to order the hit, the amber-eyed- Arab beauty offered herself to him. He would have been a fool to turn her down. So he took her as his hostage. His captive. He didn’t know by taking her, he sealed his own fate.
A Valentine’s Day Special. A Beauty So Cruel is the first book of the series Beauty & The Beast. Loosely based on the fairytale.
