Two captive dancers. One cruel master. A single performance to determine whether they live or die.

★★★★★ "Dangerous, haunting, twisted, powerful; this is what true dark romance is meant to be." -The Flamingo Bookshelf Review-

ANYA
I've served the four families since I was kidnapped three years ago.
I've accepted my fate, knowing that escape is impossible.
My villainous master abuses me, but I've learned to live this lonely life.
I've become complacent in my misery…then my master brings home another captive for me to train, and his presence changes everything.

EZRA
I was violently taken and brought to kneel at her feet.
She demands that I dance with her, but I refuse to recognize anyone as my master.
Yet when I see the horror of her existence with my own eyes, I know I have to save her.
I could never have expected her to break down my walls… I could never have expected to form an unbreakable bond…I could never have expected to fall in love.


This dark romance thriller tells a story of love against all odds.

He's going to make her the reluctant queen of his criminal empire… whether she wants it or not.

★★★★★ "One of the best dark romances I have read! Brynn Ford has delivered an amazing story of passion and depravity." -Deborah, Amazon Review-

STELLA
I'm a proudly independent woman.
I'm tough, single, and I run my own business.
But Murphy stumbled into my tattoo shop one night and knocked me right off my feminist feet.
We had a one-night stand, but it turned into a long-distance affair of the heart.
I'm falling for him.
I'm losing myself for a man I hardly know.
But I want him so much that I overlook all the secrets he's keeping.

MURPHY
I'm the born leader of the O'Shea family.
We make a living stealing women and selling them to new masters.
I've acquired my own plaything, but I have little interest in her easy submission.
I want a challenge.
I want a woman who will stand by my side and make me stronger.
I don't want a pet…I want a wife.

I'm meant to have an arranged marriage in five years, but I'm not waiting.
I met my match when I found Stella.
I want her…and I'm going to take her.

This spicy dark romance is a spin-off from the Four Families trilogy.


AUTHOR NOTE: While this book could be read as a standalone, the author highly recommends that you first read the Four Families trilogy. King of Masters contains spoilers of the epic ending to the Four Families trilogy, and that is an ending you do not want spoiled!
