“With a tantalizing hint of the darkness to come, this sensual, richly developed story kept me glued to the pages all night. Josie Litton’s writing is pure sensory magic.”
–Anna Zaires,New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of TWIST ME.
My name is Grace Delaney. I was born into this country’s most admired political family. When I was sixteen, the media dubbed me “America’s Princess”. I hate being called that, all the more so since I discovered the terrifying secret hidden behind my family’s glittering public image.
A few months ago, I graduated from college determined to make a life of my own. But now, suddenly, Adam Falzon is in it. The head of an old-world family with a reputation for ruthlessness, he looks like a fallen angel. As attracted as I am to him, I’ve come to suspect that Adam is hiding secrets of his own more deadly and dangerous than I ever want to know. I don’t dare give into my feelings for him.
But I may not have a choice. With every beat of my heart, he is drawing me further into a web of dark desire. My chances of escaping are slipping away. Worse yet, I’m no longer sure that I want to.
CHOSEN is a story of dark romance. It contains scenes of coercion, both emotional and physical, and should not be read by anyone who could find that distressing.
Grace Delaney, America’s Princess. The title had amused me when I first learned of it. I’d assumed that it was just part of the Delaneys’ carefully contrived public image. Now I had to reconsider.
She was lovelier than I expected. I’d seen photographs of her, of course, who hadn’t? I knew the superficial details—she was slightly above average height for a woman, fine-boned, and slender with mahogany hair and a face that the camera loved. The image of guarded green eyes, high cheekbones, a slim nose and a sinfully lush mouth was etched into my memory.
But for all that, I wasn’t prepared for the genuine warmth of the smile she gave the man who appeared to be her escort or the startling candor of her gaze when our eyes met.
I was used to women looking at me with desire, greed, even on occasion fear. Grace Delaney had stared at me as though she was seeing her destiny. Unfortunately for her, she was likely to be right.
A flicker of regret moved through me. I suppressed it at once. In addition to being entirely foreign to my nature, even so momentary a weakness simply could not be allowed.
I was there for one purpose only, to assess if she was the proper candidate for what I had in mind. Nothing could be permitted to interfere with that.
Yet I was far too accustomed to indulging my whims to pretend that none existed where she was concerned. For the moment, they were simple and direct:
I wanted to fuck Grace Delaney. Long, hard, repeatedly, and in every possible way.
That being out of the question, I at least wanted to be close enough to hear the sound of her voice.
To inhale the scent of her skin.
To touch her.
At the thought of doing so, my body hardened. I shifted in my seat, uncertain about what should concern me more: That my usual iron discipline was in danger of slipping?
Or that I was so powerfully attracted to the woman whose life I was on the verge of changing irrevocably.
