"You're a monster," I whispered, the broken sound barely escaping my lips. I swallowed with fear as he stepped forward, unable to calm my racing heart. "You have no idea," he slammed his palms against the wall on either side of my head, pressing his body against my own as he huskily responded. My breath caught in my throat when his eyes blackened as he stared down at my lips. "I've destroyed armies and I've murdered Kings, sweetheart. You have no idea what I'm capable of," he paused, leaning down so that his lips danced along my ear, his breath fanning across the one of the most sensitive parts of my body. "Looks like I'm taking you down next, Katalina." Elijah was recognised as one of the harshest, coldest Alpha's in the world. He was known for his brutality, his secrets and his hatred of humans. So, when Kat comes into his life and he finds that she, a human, is his mate, it's safe to say that his life is turned upside down. Eventually she softens his heart and slowly, but surely, he falls for her. There was, however, one thing Elijah didn't count on. Katalina has her own secrets. Secrets that were capable of destroying a man like Elijah. Secrets she hoped would do exactly that. Who was the real monster here?
