For fans of J Lynn, Jodi Ellen Malpas and Sylvia Day comes the final book in the Reign trilogy. This is an all-consuming, raw and powerful love story that seduces, surprises and stays with you.
Playing at forever is a dangerous game…
Torn between two men and surrounded by secrets, Lana is forced to make an agonising choice.
But what – and who – does she really want?
Then the strangest thing happened. Both their shoulders relaxed just a fraction. Time passed slowly and there I stood in front of two men I loved. My heart torn into ragged halves and they each held a piece in their hands.
“Tell me what you want,” Cal said. A small smile threatened my lips. He was so good at swooping in and saving the day. While Jack stood still, his jaw ticking and I knew exactly what he was thinking. He wanted to tell me how it was going to be. And part of me wanted to give him that burden and let him.
But I had to find the balance. For myself.
“I love you,” I said honestly. Cal smiled and then I looked at Jack who looked ready to break something. “And I love you.” The heat in his dark eyes simmered and a streak of vulnerability crossed his face as if he wasn’t expecting to hear those words from me. “You both hurt me. And I can’t commit to anything, or to either of you. I won’t.”
Cal glanced at the floor and Jack took a step forward. Crossing his arms, he unleashed a wicked grin.
“Is that right?” he asked with enticement in his voice. I was challenging his control. Telling him what I would and wouldn’t do and he wanted to play “make Lana heel to my will.” And it was a sexy, fun game. One we’d undertaken several times when we were together. That was the past though. Things weren’t the way they’d been when I was first with Jack.
“That’s right,” I said, lifting my chin with the smallest hint of confidence I felt. Confidence Jack helped me find in the first place. Confidence Cal helped me keep after the fact. Everything was jumbled and mixed and I couldn’t tell which way was up. I could only hope I’d eventually make it to the surface.
“You said you won’t commit to either of us,” Jack repeated my words and tilted his head to the side. “You still have yet to answer my question.”
My lips parted briefly and I didn’t know what to say. Cal seemed to catch onto Jack’s line of questioning. He examined me like he would his fire truck before taking it out on call. Intent and thoughtful. A gleam of hope, tied with a sexy smile cracked his handsome face.
“She’s not sure she can stay away,” he said to Jack. Jack simply nodded, his eyes staying on me the whole time. “She won’t commit, won’t choose…”
“This isn’t some twisted challenge I’m putting out there,” I defended quickly.
“Uh-huh,” Cal said with a wink. “Putting it out there or not, if you say there’s a shot with you, Kitten, I’m going to take it.”
Jack tsked. That devilish mouth making me want a lot more than a lecture. “Don’t go fibbing now.” He took another step, then another until he was face to face with me. He whispered into my ear, “Your body gives you away.”
