The legacy of the Black Dagger Brotherhoodcontinues in a spin-off series from the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Paradise, blooded daughter of the king s First Advisor, is ready to break free from the restrictive life of an aristocratic female. Her strategy? Join the Black Dagger Brotherhood s training center program and learn to fight for herself, think for herself...be herself. It s a good plan, until everything goes wrong. The schooling is unfathomably difficult, the other recruits feel more like enemies than allies, and it s very clear that the Brother in charge, Butch O Neal, a.k.a. the "Dhestroyer," is having serious problems in his own life. And that s before she falls in love with a fellow classmate. Craeg, a common civilian, is nothing her father would ever want for her, but everything she could ask for in a male. As an act of violence threatens to tear apart the entire program, and the erotic pull between them grows irresistible, Paradise is tested in ways she never anticipated--and left wondering whether she s strong enough to claim her own power...on the field, and off."
