Cross To Bear (Book 1)

All Rights Reserved ©


“Bend down and do as I say,” the man growled behind my back. Fear crept up my body as I do as he says. Naked and with no one to help me. A single tear slides down as I embarrassedly showed him my entire body. “You’re definitely awful. Who did this? Your mother? Your father?” the man asked as I feel his finger slid down my spine. With trembling lips I say, “Y-Yes… it was my father.” “He’s more of a beast than me, I see,” the man whispered as I feel him yank my hair. “Sadly, no one can save you now.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Abused, disgraced, hated by my family. No desire to live until they brought me to him. He who looked at me with disgust, the same way they looked at me. Did I have any kind of hope? No, because they cursed me to die once I turn twenty. Would they know? I was planning to take that secret to my grave. No matter what it takes, I would never let them know that I Amari the cursed princess would die soon. Not even him King Maximus would know. I would die with this cross I have to bear since the moment I was born.

Cross To Bear


-There will be cursing and mature theme. Possibly physical assault. Please don’t take the warning light.

-This is not your typical romantic story. Most of you already know I give twists and turns, so just a small head up.

-This is book 1 of the Bloodstone series.

-This will have dark romance, with a touch of mystery and squeezing love sometimes.

-I always appreciate Constructive criticism.

-I try to be interactive with my readers, so comment, comment and I will answer back :D

-This is also a draft version! Meaning mistakes such as spelling and grammar errors will most likely be present. As you are aware of, I usually edit books once they are completed.

-Updates: Every day or day in between.
