Guilty. I can’t believe I’m guilty.
The worst killer seen in ages...
At least, that’s what the demonic-looking jury said with their verdict.
I don’t know how I’ve found myself convicted of a crime I didn’t commit. If I hadn’t broken my rule about getting involved in other people’s business, I wouldn’t be in this position. But there’s nothing I hate more than a creep who can’t take a hint.
After a bar brawl left the creep and many others dead, I now find myself in a strange world of trouble. Literally. Apparently, I broke Magaelorum Law, and the judge claims I’m not human. Lies. I’d know if I wasn’t. Right?
And that’s not the worst of it.
I’ve been sentenced to life in prison at the Maximum Magical Penitentiary, where Magaelorum’s vilest offenders reside. Except they’re the least of my worries. Three wicked-hot, devastatingly cruel dragon-shifter guards make it their mission to ensure the rest of my life is complete hell. The dead guy I was falsely accused of murdering was their friend. They want revenge. Great.
To survive, I must figure out this magical prison life. I’m alone, clueless, and nearly defeated. But I have one thing on my side. I know who the real killer is. I just have to break out of this place to find him. My biggest problem? The guards, this hellhole, and those loyal to the true murderer might kill me first.
Armed and dangerous.
A threat to all.
The deadliest fugitive Magaelorum has ever seen...
Except, they haven’t seen anything yet.
After being falsely convicted of a crime I didn’t commit, I am now on the run to clear my name. I must find the bastard warlock who pinned his malicious wrongdoings on me. If only I knew where to look. Or how to get the High Council and another dragon clan off my trail.
With the help of my three supposed dragon mates, a murderous fairy princess, and an annoying lycan I want to eat for breakfast, I might be able to come out unscathed. Maybe. To do so, I have to summon the wild beast inside me.
Unfortunately, my dragon heart wants more than freedom. It wants revenge.
Looks like I might be the worst killer after all.
Even the strongest magic can’t contain a dragon’s heart.
As the last unclaimed Drakovich female dragon, I have a duty to my clan to strengthen our bloodlines. I must accept a union to the dragon princes of the Litendrake Territory. If only my soul didn’t call to another clan—my true mates—the Drogony guards of the vilest prison in Magaelorum.
To escape my unwanted fate, I do something unthinkable. Life within the prison walls of the Maximum Magical Penitentiary will be far better than being imprisoned in a life apart from the men I love.
But after an unexpected revelation threatens our lives, I must rely on more than my heart to get me through. My only choice to save my future is to escape this prison. If I don’t, I’ll face a life sentence of heartache and loss. I’ll never be free.
