“And you might also wish to stay in your room after dark,” he continued, his voice low. The king’s knee was wedged in between Acacia’s thighs, preventing them from shutting. However, he also didn’t position himself too closely to her. It was just there, reminding her that she was trapped. His face was so close, hovering mere inches away from her. If either Acacia or the king leaned forward, their lips would’ve ended up touching. If it stopped at mere lips touching, though, Acacia couldn’t be sure. “Monsters roam these corridors.” *** Acacia’s life is turned upside down when her lover suddenly abandons her in favor of a nobleman’s daughter. Unfortunately for Acacia, all single women at the age of 18 will be sent into the royal palace for the selection so as to join the king’s harem. Across the years, many women have been added as the king’s concubine. Half of them have died in the palace due to schemes and treachery and Acacia, who has been selected, will soon be next if she doesn’t find a way to escape. After all, rumors have spread far and wide that their king is a monster. Acacia’s town is one of the many human settlements ruled by the werewolves. Their king, King Tiberius Kilorn, is also known as the most fearsome one in battle― the Wolf of the North. So, when Acacia has caught the eye of King Tiberius, she naturally wishes to find a way out of the palace so as to ensure her own survival. For all the riches and comforts the palace can provide, Acacia is unwilling to sacrifice her life for a man she doesn’t love. However, what happens when Acacia finds out that Tiberius isn’t at all the monster others say that he is? And what will happen if, despite how ruthless and cruel he portrays himself, Acacia realizes that even so-called monsters like the king are capable of compassion? Capable of love? Will Acacia still wish to escape then? *** “And for what reasons were you sent here by your lover?” the king asked, making a completely wild guess. “Fame? Riches? Women?” Acacia’s eyes immediately shot up from the sheets to meet the king’s eyes. She hadn’t faced him head-on the entire time he was in her room but now that her wound had been torn open, her grief outweighed her fear. “Phineas didn’t―” She was immediately shushed when a hand pressed her two cheeks together firmly, disabling her from saying more than a few muffled and indistinguishable words. “And who said you’re allowed to utter another man’s name in front of me, your husband, your king?” He sneered. “Maybe you need to be taught a lesson to remember who exactly it is you belong to.” --- Image used in cover not mine.

4Su Liang was the Bai family’s maid. As she was similar to the young lady, Bai Qing, in appearance, she was often used as a substitute. Bai Qing threatened Su Liang, saying that she would cure Su Liang’s mother if Su Liang agreed to take her place. That night, Bai Qing pushed Su Liang into a dark room. Su Liang heard the heavy pants of a man that sounded like a trapped beast. She was pressed down underneath the muscular man’s bare torso, and her legs helplessly wrapped around his waist. Like a wildflower swaying in a thunderstorm, she let the man ravage her. After the deed was done, Bai Qing gave her a debit card. “You better keep quiet about what happened tonight. If anyone finds out what happened, I’ll kill you.” So it seems that Bai Qing had always wanted to get close to Gu Han. But she wasn’t a virgin, and Gu Han was a germophobe, so Bai Qing was worried that Gu Han would scorn her tainted body. Hence, she was forced to have Su Liang sleep with him in her place. After Su Liang left, Bai Qing crept into Gu Han’s bed, pretending to be the woman whose virginity had just been taken by him. Su Liang didn’t care for any of this.
