20 years ago, a clansman killed her father and turned her life upside down. Now another stepped into her life to turn it inside out.
Assigned as a mediator during negotiations with the Clan of the Woodlands, Ayanna wants to be anything but helpful. Sure, that guy was the heir to a chieftain and tolerably handsome for a clansman, but that doesn’t stop her from calling him out as what he is: a savage.
After all, everyone knows how the Clans struggle to keep their few women safe after a chemical accident has wiped out most of the female population. Ayanna has no doubt Nix is as dangerous as the rest of them, no matter how protective he might act around her.
Nix knows he can’t trust himself around that female the council of the Districts has assigned him. Being close to something as rare as a woman required honor and a functioning set of morals – he was doomed from birth to have neither.
But the young clansman has a mission: bring about a merge between the Districts and his Clan. That water the Districts are drinking to suppress immoral needs in men and women alike? Yeah, that had to go. But negotiating with the council won’t be the hardest part of this mission. He has to ignore whatever Ayanna stirs inside him, or risk finding out just how deep that darkness inside him reaches.
The Heir is the full-length prequel of V. K. Ludwig’s dystopian romance series Clan of the Woodlands. Best read in order, this series features steamy romance, strong men, laughs, and characters bleeding from their pages.
