An ancient curse. Two families bound. A forbidden love. When the Wildbloods presented their daughters to me on the night of the Tithing, they knew what was to come for the chosen girl. The crescent moon that marked Willow made her mine. I had no choice but to take her. Destiny determined our fates long before we were born, laying our roles out for us. A Sacrifice would be made. A Tithe paid. Only then would our families be free, at least until the next payment came due. I would have done my duty as Penitent. I tried. But no one counted on the lion falling in love with the lamb. And loving Willow could cost me everything.

Plot Summary :

The Willow curse has been the doom of everyone in the Wildblood family. Unfortunately its next victim would be Willow. The Delacroix she would be with would be none other than the oldest child of that house , Azrael. She was to submit to him and then eventually let him destroy both her body and soul. Too bad she had never been good at following orders or giving into what the Fate wanted.

Azrael knew that a Wildblood had to be sacrificed. It was what he had been prepared for. The one purpose of his life. Until he met her. Willow. She was nothing like what he had imagined. She was everything he wanted for himself and also to ruin her in the best ways possible. She would be his sacrifice. And his eventual Ruin.

“You’re my wife now, Willow,” he growls. “There’s nowhere to run.”

Overall Opinion :

Omg , my favorite author duo is back with another duet for us!! After ready the society trilogy and going absolutely nuts over Santino , I knew how much I was going to love this one and I dived into it the moment It came on my Kindle.

Willow and Azrael are so much more than I expected. When I read the blurb , I thought this one might not be that dark or kinky as the society trilogy , but omg. The way things turned out!! I mean it started off as mild but then these authors served me the best enemies to lovers ever with some amazing Hate steam scenes. The characters are amazing and so is the plot!

I have plenty of theories for this duet and how everything is going to turn out and I am basically very excited to read it!! Definitely recommending this one to all the dark romance loving people out there!
