Hideous ePUB by Gale Darkly
I watch her every move. Smell her every scent. Own her every breath. The girl is mine. My Gift, and I know why she’s here. Imprisoned with me. Catalina’s been sent to extract my secrets—to unlock the memories that I can’t recall. She tells me, that I’m beautiful, and not a hideous monster. She doesn’t know of my past. The bars keep us separated, but no chain could keep me from claiming her. From breeding her.
I’m a prisoner. A convicted murderer. I had dreams once. A daring career, and now I’ve been offered a commuted sentence, in exchange for my help extracting a prisoner’s secrets. I can’t see Corenthian in the dark, but I know that he’s handsome. That he’s the one they call Monster. He’s undead. Was brought back to life, his skin grafted and his flesh pierced. He knows why I was given to him, but he plays my game anyway. Puts his hands on me, and makes me his first. His first love. His first everything.
