Synopsis

A love doomed from the start, a lost cause, a losing battle—and yet, neither hearts are willing to let go until the very end.
-----
Arlan Cromwell, the epitome of the perfect Crown Prince. All he wants is to live a normal life of a human but the life of a dragon is anything but normal. He has but one goal—to find his runaway betrothed and behead her. What happens when he discovers that the woman who has snagged his heart is the one he vowed to kill?

Oriana, a Black Witch, disguising herself as a man, has spent her entire life on the run without knowing what she is running away from. When the mysteries of her past slowly catch up to her, she has no one to turn to…except Arlan. But when she learns that the man she has given her heart to is the same man who wants to kill her, how can she accept the cruel card life dealt her?

Two people with secrets to keep, identities to hide, and answers to find. When the certain darkness threatens to take Oriana away, will the Dragon be able to protect his mate?
-----
Excerpt-

“If I knew you were my betrothed, I would have killed you the very first moment we met." Arlan's gaze darkened with hatred.

“If I knew I was betrothed to you, I would have killed myself before you even killed me!” Oriana mirrored the same emotions as him.

He pulled out a dagger and offered it to her. “It’s not too late. Just slit your throat with this and you'll bleed out painlessly.”

She accepted the knife, her fingers clutching its handle tightly. The next moment, he was pressed against the wall and the knife was on the right side of his neck. “How about I try it on you first, my betrothed?”

“Feel free to try. But when you fail, this knife will first taste your grandpa's blood, then yours.”

Anger rose in her eyes, and the next moment, blood was flowing through the right side of his neck. She cut deep enough to severe an important blood vessel.

“You should not have challenged me,” she sneered and stepped back, waiting for him to collapse.

He simply smirked and brushed his finger along the deep wound on his neck. “Seems like you failed.”

She watched the wound on his neck heal on its own and felt shocked to her bones. “You.. what are you?”

“Guess?”

    It is an addicting story of a powerful devil who pleasantly bullies a beautiful witch pretending as a boy. As they get to know each other and uncover so many secrets, it is exciting to see how they fall for each other. Like the other novels related to this novel, I am anticipating a lot of frustrations for wanting to read more chapters, as well as laughter and tears for such a wonderful well-written novel.

    No doubt it has such high ratings. Worth all hype and deserves more. I generally don't read historical novels because many of them go the same way and sometimes get too depressing and serious for my taste. However this one has perfect blend of comedy, jealousy, tension, mystery, suspense, obsessed male lead, cute yet strong female lead, you say it - it has everything. The writing quality is top notch - with every small detail, emotions being explained, it's as if everything has been occurring in front of my eyes. Author, just know that to read the catch up to the chapters I stayed awake the whole night and still not read everything but already love this- this is what you call pure dedication. 🫣😍🤭

    Completely lost in the world of Arlan and Oriana!!! This book has an extremely strong plot. It's a story of a pair of mates who are also enemies. Our strong, handsome, playful dragon (Male lead) falls deeply for the beautiful, enigmatic, strong-willed witch (Female lead). But what happens when he finds out that she is his long lost betrothed AKA his enemy? Brace yourself for twists, turns, secrets, mysteries and a lot of cliffhangers as the story proceeds. It's truly intriguining how the mysteries are solved. The plot, character design, setting, quality of writing, the pace of story development, etc are all too good. The author's eye for the tiniest detail is worth mentioning. A must add to your library.

    Update on previous review- Rom-come meets the Devil in the most delightful way. I‘m sure even Shakespeare would approve🤣🤣 Lead LF desess as a male this confuses every male around her questioning their gender preference 😅😂😂 except for the sly devil himself who is on to her. It is just hilarious to watch. I am laughing my a** off just reading all the shenanigans going on. The FL is my favorite so far of all the FL in the books I’ve read. In fact I love her 😅🤣🤣🤣 I don’t want to spoil anymore so I would just say I don’t know how it will connect with the other books but even as a stand alone I would highly recommend! Great job author ✍️😘😘😘

    I’m at nearly chapter 200 and am still obsessed with this story, craving for chapter updates (author is diligent in daily update so no hard feeling about that). Oriana is the most captivating female lead I’ve encountered. She is bold, mischievous, curious, gentle, caring, natural, humble, determined… everyone (me included) loves her, notwithstanding her pretty look. Her adventures are exciting, and her interactions with Arlan is simply precious - mirthful encounters with the prideful prince who’s reluctant to admit his attraction towards Oriana. Enjoy the tug of war between Oriana and Arlan! You can read this story standalone, or covering the previous volumes and reunite familiar characters with their new developments. p.s. The book cover is the best art representation of the couple and the story, love it.

    The boy is a girl and the prince is a devil. They both have their pasts, their enemies, their secrets. She is in danger, and that danger is him. A magnetic force draws them together. What will happen when he finds out about her identity? He's looking for a black witch and she's the one. Will he kill her? Will his heart allow it or maybe he doesn' have a heart? Not without reason people call him cruel. An extremely engaging story with fabulous plot. A must-read! Thank you Mynovel20 for another phenomenal masterpiece😘

    So after reading the synopsis and its chapters, MyNovel20 (whose previous works have won WSA) ALREADY has me on the edge of my seat and it’s only the EXCERT. This new masterpiece and is worth all of my coins! She has once again created a story that takes place within the same timeline as her other works but has an entirely different spin and feel to it. Once you start reading it, you will never want to leave this world. Oriana is an incredibly strong character, with a mystery background who is on track to run right into her HEA…as long as she doesn’t kill him first. Arlan is a devilish Prince on the warpath to catch his errant betrothed and I look forward to what is in store for them as we get further into their adventure. Ori and Arlan are both stubborn and are proving they love fiercely. The world building is so astute that you feel a part of the story. If you have never read her work before, this looks like a great place to start. I’d highly recommend also reading the rest of the series…it’ll help you love the characters even more. So far this book has been absolutely amazing! The character development and suspense has me hooked, can't wait to meet other characters I already know. I really can't put this book down, add it to your library and join the rest of us on this adventure. I greatly look forward to following the love story of this strong and gorgeous couple!

    This book is fastly becoming one of my faves. As it is part of the Devils witch series the plot and charcters not only intertwine seamlessly with the other two books but also hold their own as a stand alone. The writing style and charcter personalities will hook you right from the start. Mynovel20 is a superb storyteller and the fact that all these book connect beautifully is a testament to her writing skills and ability. READ IT YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!
