About the Book
“I’m not scared of you.”
I meet her gaze. “You should be.”
Bound by a secret oath spanning generations, I am loyal to no one but the queen.
Defender of the Crown.
To all of England, I’m Saxon Priest. Traitor. Murderer. Owner of London’s most infamous anti-loyalist pub.
And then she appears.
Isla Quinn may claim that she’s only looking to buss tables, but I’m no fool. Bitterness bleeds from her hard-blue eyes, and her hatred for the queen is so palpable, I can practically taste it off every sharp-tongued word slipping from her full mouth.
“Hire me,” she begs.
We’re on opposite sides of this war. Enemies from the start.
Isla thought she found an ally, but she’s found me instead.
A man with no heart, no matter how the dead space inside my chest lurches whenever she’s near.
And so I lean over, dragging her deep into this twisted game of crowns and thrones, and offer a single vow: “I could use you.”
Road to Fire is a dark romantic suspense written in the first-person point of view and is the first book in the all-new Broken Crown Trilogy.
Maria Luis keeps you on the edge of your seat with this suspenseful story. Road to Fire has a little bit of everything from darkness, mystery, suspense to steamy romance. Saxon and Isla are the true definition of enemies to lovers with their fire and ice, off the page sexual tension. The book did start out a bit slow, as a complicated story with many layers, it was needed to catch you up on the characters lives. I am looking forward to the remainder of the trilogy for Saxon’s brother’s points of view.
