Rule #1: Don't fall for your father's worst enemy.
Aleksio grew up orphaned, hunted - because of my father. Now the sweet boy I knew is back, beautiful and brutal in his Armani suit, wrapping my hair in his fist.
He's my captor, my tormenter. He'll do anything to rescue his brothers...and I'm my father's only weakness.
"I'm the most dangerous enemy you'll ever have," he tells me, "Because every time you look at me, you see somebody good."
But I remember when Aleksio was my only friend. I remember when they lowered his tiny casket into the ground, and how I cried when they lied to us and told us the prince was dead.
