Till death do us part.

My father married me off to one of the most powerful men in Italy.

Maverick DeVille. But I call him the wolf.

He calls me his sheep. 

The arranged marriage was detested by us both, but we had to make sacrifices for the right reasons. He needed to avenge his mother and I needed protection from the mobs that want to torture me.

He's not what I pictured for my husband. He's ruthless, calloused, and cold. His walls are higher than mine. He possesses cruelty that makes him feared.

But it doesn't take long for me to respect him...even like him.

I rely on my husband more than anyone else in the world. He provides for me, protects me, and chases away all my fears.

He lets me graze in the meadow...not a care in the world.

Because the wolf is always watching. 

"When people look in the darkness, they see shadows. I see monsters. And I kill the monsters that hunt my sheep." 

I hated this marriage in the beginning, but now I realize how lucky I am.

How lucky I am to be the sheep the wolf protects...and doesn't eat.


  • Great Series

    Although Penelope Sky brings elements of previous series to each new one she writes somehow they continue to surprise and engage the reader. Looking forward to Book Three.
  • Something different...

    By thatasianashley
    But so good! Penelope has kept things the same in some ways but also turned the plot to this story different from everything else she’s written thus far. I’m proud of the diversity and am loving the way the story is building. It’s a slower burning build up to its eventual finale and not rushed whatsoever. I’m loving the way things are going with Maverick and Arwen. She doesn’t give up easily and Mavericks defenses also don’t go down easily either. I can’t wait to read more...
  • Entertaining but..

    By lollllarose
    I’ve read all of Penelope’s books and loved most of them. This one lacked a lot of the passion and violence of her other books which i missed. This was more of a YA version of Sky’s Books. A traditional love story of “i dont want anything serious” turned head over heels. I wouldnt say it was boring, cuz i didnt stop reading it but it wasn’t as captivating as most of her books.
  • 🤯 Wooooow

    By Darsh :)
    I wasn’t sure what to expect when it came to this book I thought it would be a story like the others but right from the beginning it was different (in the best way). I immediately felt connected to the characters because I actually had stuff in common with them. Maverick maverick maverick 🖤 I adore his heart although it’s a little black there’s still room for light I wish he saw that. I hope Arwen is able to save him from himself just as he’s saving her from all of the dangers in the world. I can’t wait to read the next book. Best series yet 👏🏽 !
  • What did I just read?

    By Ahm08b
    This book was horrible. Juvenile. Tactless. The main characters were a joke. The dialogue was so so so dumb. Plot line was predictable with a million holes. The sex was weak and I literally rolled my eyes at the things they said to each other. The book was primarily describing the condition of his facial hair and the way clothes fit the main character’s bodies. You should be paid to read this book.
  • Amazing

    By Prmamakel
    I couldn’t put this one down. I see how a family loves one another from other books to a family that hates one another. Penelope please don’t stop writing.
  • Wow!

    By Holanyjyjhmygrgddefhyjy
    Penelope Sky never fails to write an exciting, page turning, and thrill seeking book. This book is much different than the rest. Two characters held powerless to their father, that dictate their lives. Forced together, these characters hate each other, but start a friendship out of loneliness. But when the one betrays the other, will that friendship last? Overall, this book is like nothing Penelope Sky has written before, and I can’t wait to see what exciting adventure she will take us all on this time.
  • Penelope Sky Never Disappoints

    By Brownskiin_Tay
    Let me just start by saying I’ve read all of Penelope Sky’s books and what I will say is she never disappoints. She leaves her reader wanting more; craving the love she illustrates in her characters. I can not wait for the following book to come out!!!!!!!
  • Page turner

    By Maryjaneex
    This has been one of my favorites this far. Sky is such a talented author and pulls you into every book. I hate waiting a month between them!
  • Another Great One 👏🏻👏🏻

    By Vanessa1993
    This is a different style of Penelope’s other series but it’s STILL great! I’m even more happy that she wrote it this way. Its refreshing and still has that same intriguing story that you just get lost in.
