Growing up in the same motorcycle club, Arthur Killian and Cleo Price were as close as siblings until the night he set her home on fire. Her testimony sent him to prison, but he used his talent with numbers to secure an early release. When Arthur and Cleo's paths cross again, he knows he's found the perfect opportunity for revenge.
The sole survivor of the fire that killed her parents, Cleo grew up with painful scars covering the entire right side of her body. Now, though, she wakes up with tattoos covering the left half, and no memory of how she got them. In fact, she remembers nothing from her previous life. The only thing she knows is that her captor is familiar, and he makes her feel things she never thought possible. But he has secrets about her past, and Cleo discovers that the truth may be hidden in the markings covering her body.
In one kiss, Kill obliterated any past lovers I might’ve had and stamped his absolute mark on my soul. I didn’t care about the rest of it. I didn’t care about the complications between us. All I cared about was connecting with someone on a visceral level. Kill pulled back, his pupils black and full of fire.
Cleo Price can’t remember where she’s from or even her own name. All she knows is that she’s been forcibly taken by a Motorcycle Club that plans on selling her. She’s trying to force herself to recall anything about her life that will help her survive – but when he takes off her blindfold – she remembers so much more than she should.
One look into the eyes of a man named “Kill” and her soul instantly recognizes him. There was love, there was fire and there was pain. The closer that she gets to him, the closer she comes to finding out the truth. Sometimes, it’s better to just not know anything at all.
Arthur “Kill” Killian can’t believe his own eyes. The girl that he loved and lost is now standing right in front of him and her memories are threatening to undo his intricate plan to take revenge on those that took her from him all those years ago.
He’s the perfect paradox of violence and vulnerability. He’s both pure and hopelessly tainted. His only memories of love are now etched in his skin and this beautiful “Forgetful Girl” can soothe his demons with only a touch. He doesn’t have much time to find out if she’s truly who she says she is. Because bloodshed is coming for them and this time there will be no survivors.
The stars had seen fit to reunite us. What did that mean? That we’d paid our dues and finally deserved our happiness? Or perhaps we were just star-crossed lovers being taunted by hope. Either way, I would fight to keep her. I would fight to protect my future. I would take extra pleasure reaping my revenge. Not only did they have my sins to pay for but also what they’d done to the woman I adored. I would show them what a monster they’d made when they’d tried to destroy me. I would show them who would win.
Ruin & Rule is a head-trip, a rollercoaster ride and a wickedly hot romance all rolled up into one unstoppable package! Pepper Winters has sharpened her artistry for the forbidden to a gloriously sharp point that’s sure to intoxicate you from beginning to end.
“I’d been ruined, but now I would rule.”
*Shivers* It just doesn’t blaze any brighter than that…
