My husband is cruel, ruthless, and despicable.

I hate him with every fiber of my being.

The only reason I haven't killed him or tried to run away is because of the promise I made. I sold myself to save someone I loved...and this is the price I have to pay.

I was sitting alone in a bar when the most handsome man walked inside. Striking blue eyes, cheekbones as sharp as glass, and a muscular body fit for a war. He was gorgeous. I couldn't take my eyes off him. When he bought me a drink, I didn't say no. I'd been unfulfilled for so long, and I wanted a real man for the night. My husband had his affairs so why couldn't I?

I noticed the peculiar ring on his right hand, a diamond carved into a skull. If only I'd known what that meant, I would have known who this man was.

The Skull King.

A man more cruel and ruthless than my own husband.

    Don’t get me wrong is a great book, but characters don’t change is like Penelope is constantly using the same profile. A poor woman being someone’s property and a despicable man that ultimate falls in love.... in Italy. I would love to read a ore refreshable story
  • Skull King is a great read!

    By Moms Lori
    Penelope has done it again! Balto for being the king of the underground criminal world, he has a soft side for Cassini, but I suspect it may change in the next book and she will want to hate him!

    The only way you can love a story about sex trafficking criminal is if Penelope Sky wrote a book about him. So dam hot.

    By thatasianashley
    okay.....WHAT AN ENDING. Balto went ice cold! That was something I didn’t see coming. And I like that!!! Unexpected... definitely has me EXTREMELY excited for Skull Crusher. Ugh, I need a drink after that intensity. You go, Pene. You know how to keep things fresh and interesting after all of these stories you have written.
  • A new Pene Alpha to love

    By Kc0430
    Balto just might beat out Crow in my Pene Alpha loves. I have been anxious for her to write about a male who isn’t afraid to admit he likes the female lead in the first book and she not be deceiving him somehow! I can tell it’s only getting started. With 2 more books to go I can’t wait to see how this all plays out!!

  • ❤️ It

    By Reena39
    I ❤️ the story plot between Balto & Cassini. He struggles with with being the villain & finding himself fallen a beautiful woman that isn’t afraid of him. I can’t wait to see how the rest of their relationship unfolds. I am never disappointed when I read a book by Ms. Sky.
  • Can’t wait to read more !

    I’ve always had this idea of what a member of the skull kings was like and let me tell you I was wrong. The characters of the book are so much better than I could imagine. I’m looking froward to reading the next book and if it’s anything like the frost it will be GOOD.
