Downfall by Willow Aster is LIVE!
Get ready to meet Luka Catano!
Kingdoms Of Sin- Book 1
By Willow Aster
I was naïve to think my marriage to Luka Catano might work.I was infatuated with him from afar…Until I met him.He loved the challenge of his next conquest, anyone would do…Except me.A wife was never something he wanted.Torturous was not a strong enough word to describe how I felt when I was in a room with Luka. Besides hating nearly every word that came out of his mouth, I also drowned with lust every time I looked at him. At times I thought he might feel the same.But nothing prepared me for what his family would make me become.
I usually shy away from “Royalty” romance novels but was intrigued by this blurb. I was looking for something different with a bit of political intrigue.
In today’s modern world one would think that arranged marriages are a thing of the past. Most of countries that still have monarchies are usually for ceremonial and diplomatic purposes rather than presiding over the government. Most of us are enamored with the idea of royalty and fascinated by the princes and princesses.
Downfall is anything but the typical royal romance. It’s actually kind of ugly because the royal heirs are being used as political pawns in a very treacherous world.
The marriage has been arranged since childhood between Prince Luka Catano of Niaps and Princess Eden Safrin of Farrow . The two have not met until they both were to attend Kings Passage University. They have one year to pursue their studies and get to know one another before their marriage. When the two meet not only can they not stand one another but also have different agenda’s in the grand scheme of life. Luka wants to sow his royal oats until the wedding, Eden wanted a fairytale romance. Unfortunately their one year reprieve is cut short due to their countries dangerous political crisis. These world situations change the arrangement and they are forced into a hasty marriage.
Life is miserable for both of them. The royal palace of Niaps is full of deception, cruelty, and filled with hatred. Eden doesn’t know how to survive this kind of environment. She’s determined to find her way.
Luka is hiding many secrets. His open affairs and blatant disregard for Eden is horrendous. Beneath the surface there is another Luka altogether. Will Eden ever get to see that Luka?
Just when things are becoming bearable life throws another wrench in their twisted marriage.
Downfall is only the beginning of the Kingdoms of Sin series by Willow Aster. This is not a fairytale, it’s a story of survival. I can’t wait to see what comes next.
