He’s my husband. I’m his prisoner.

Adrian Cross is the most ruthless kingpin in London’s criminal underworld.

Dangerous. Powerful. Undeniable. Venom wrapped in Savile Row linen.

He’s also my ex-husband.

Or rather, my not-quite-technically “ex” husband.

Now someone wants me dead, and the man I ran from might be my only chance of survival.

But his help won’t come for free.

In exchange for his protection, he gets all of me: body and soul.

No limits. No mercy. No catching feelings for the man who hates me for what I did.

I tell myself my heart isn’t part of our sinful pact.

But the deeper we sink into our twisted games, the more impossible that might be.

Because Adrian never gave it back in the first place.

Dark Kingdom is a dark mafia romance. Readers are advised to read the TW inside. This is a STANDALONE novel with a HEA

Plot Summary :

Adrian Cross is a man you don;t cross. And when he is also your ex-husband who now hates you?? You definitely don’t go to him for help. But that is what Celeste intended to do. If only she knew of the situation she was about to put herself into. But she has no choice. Adrian loved her once but that was before he broke her and destroyed her completely. What she did not know was how much he still hated her. And how much he would still like to destroy and possess whatever was left of her sanity. Helping her was the last thing on his mind. Once she was back with him , there was no escape for her.

Overall Opinion :

Another amazing read by Jagger Cole!! Seriously, Like seriously! I can never ever get enough of this author and his heroes. The way he writes , and the way all these characters are , it's just too addictive for a dark romance lover like me. If you love extremely possessive anti heroes , who are also some of the best dirty talkers , then pick up a single book by Jagger and I can bet you that you will be hooked!

Adrian and Celeste were like that for me. I just could not get enough of them. Seriously, one book is left for them lol , I hope we see them more.

Definitely recommending this one to all the dark romance loving people out there.
