They are the ultimate weapon. The ultimate secret. They are the Crown’s wolves.
Lycan Ky Lanzo is bound by the Crown’s command. His latest mission directive was deceptively simple. Get yourself caught. Now, Ky’s been bound, drugged, and collared by an unknown enemy in a facility that knows enough about him to neutralize his lycan strength and his telekinetic magic. But he’s not alone in his cell. Because there’s someone else with him. Someone exquisite. Someone altogether forbidden…
For Vivi Kinley, another month gone by means another full moon trapped in a cell with a moon-crazed lycan. There once was a time I’d never kill a living creature. Only, Ky is different. He’s powerful, latently sexy…and wanting him is dangerous trouble. Because sexual attraction is exactly what their captors want—and it’ll be an icy day in hell before she’ll allow it.
Now, Vivi and Ky have one chance at escape and to discover what twisted organization did this to them—and make them pay. The good news is that Ky might have found his near-impossible lycan mate. The bad news is that she might be programmed to kill them all…
The The Crown’s Wolves series is best enjoyed in order.

“There’s a contract on me?” Vivi pointed to herself. No one moved. All had different variations of
respect on their faces except Dom, who undressed the lady with his eyes. Would they not
defend her against this woman? Not even Ky?
The petite woman with the blond bob and swoopy bangs radiated a larger-than-life aura in her
red draped dress and spiky heels. Not a weapon was in sight, but Vivi sensed the danger in her.
This female knew how to kill and had no qualms about doling out death. Maybe even hers.
“Apparently, you’re guilty of terrorism and mass murder or some such nonsense. Are you
guilty?” The woman asked as if it’d be fascinating if Vivi said yes.
“Honestly, I’m not sure, given that I just spent three years in a prison, and I thought it’d been
only a few weeks. I also just found out the humans were messing with my head to control me.”
“How exciting for you to get dropped into Ky’s life.”
The woman clapped her hands. “So glad he decided to bring you to me, then. I’m Evie.”
Ky said, “We didn’t bring her to you, Mom. We brought her to Dom. For help. What are you
Ky nodded at Vivi’s question. He thought it obvious. He had his Mom’s eyes, even though where
she was petite, he was huge.
“Come here, love.” Evie held out her arms and pulled Ky into a hug. “Thank God, those brothers
of yours got smart enough to finally bring you back to me even if they did let it go on too long.
Look how skinny you are.” She drew in a shaky breath and whispered, “I thought I lost you.”
“You almost did.”
She cupped either side of his face with her hands. “Those people who put this curse on you
have taken too much from you, all of you. Say the word…”
“You know I can’t. We’d be forced to hunt you down if we said that word.” He smiled softly. “I
need you… We all need you here to be fierce for us. Someone has to be.”
“You have to get free of the Crown. All of you. There has to be a way. This mission had nothing
to do with the betterment of the world. This was selfish. They intentionally split you three up to
do”—she waved at Ky’s frame—“this to you.”
His mother leaned away from him to address Roman. “What good is being a warrior for God if
you’re unable to locate Ky for seventeen goddamned weeks?” She embraced Ky again. “Love,
you left right after you promised me a repeat of the bread pudding. Who does a disappearing
act right before following through on that kind of promise?”
She pushed away and fluffed her hair. “At my age, we have so few things to brighten up life.”
Evie’s eyes met Dom’s and heated.
“Told you Ky was her favorite,” Flynn muttered to Roman.
“He bribes her with food,” said Roman, affection heavy in his tone.
“Warrior for God?” Ky asked Roman.
“Long story. Has to do with Zadkiel, the angel. Something else you missed.”
“Did you take the contract?” Ky asked as his mom pulled away.
A sly smile transformed her face. “Of course I did. If I hadn’t, someone else would’ve. Her face
had lycan written all over it. Given she was located in the part of the world you boys were
visiting, I figured she had everything to do with you. I couldn’t wait to meet another girl who’d
gotten one of my boy’s knickers in a wad.”
“It’s not like that. Are you going to kill her?” Ky asked.
“If I wanted her dead, darling, she wouldn’t have a pulse. We’ll have to find out if she’s tough
enough to handle you. You’re a lot, you know.”
