Publisher's Summary

Instead of handing me back to Lucian so Balto can get everything he wants, he keeps me. He pledges to fight for me until I'm free. But as the weeks pass, freedom isn't as appealing as it used to be. 

This place has become my home.

This man is my home.

I'm not sure if I'd ever want to leave...even if Lucian was dead.

FINALLY, 5 ⭐️ REVENGE, REDEMPTION & ROMANCE

A great ending to a fantastic trilogy.. over the three books in this series, Ms Sky has slowly managed to turn a cold, vicious, swoon-worthy Drug Lord anti-hero - with nothing but revenge, power and diamonds on his mind, into a fierce, possessive, protective, loving, loyal hero. And the woman who finally tames Balto the skull crusher went from being somebody’s unsuspecting pawn.. to Lucian’s unwilling bride.. to Balto’s cooped-up caring captive.. but Cassini wasn’t going to settle for anything less than being loved, stood firm, sacrificed, walked away from love, longingly dreamed of the perfect HEA future.. and eventually got the man.. and the ending she (and I) wanted most. There’s action, suspense, lots of sex, smouldering undertones, wicked chemistry, emotional heartache and character growth as the ruthless alpha Skull King, who relentlessly denies love, slowly realizes that his title, his army of men and all his billions means absolutely nothing without the woman he loves. And that loving and loyal heroine with a sweet soul is just what he needs, will change Balto’s life forever and will show him how to love if only he’ll let her. However, standing in Balto and Cassini’s way is Lucian her evil Crime Lord husband with the third skull diamond Balto is desperate to have to complete his set.. and Lucian is demanding his property be returned and is willing to pay any price to get Cassini back. However, Balto knows Lucian wants to torture and punisher her, viciously wreck and ruin her and cold-bloodedly crucify and finally kill Cassini.. so will there be a truce, a trade.. or all out war? Worth a credit? Yes, I love Ms Sky’s writing abilities, her romances that bloom from darkness, her smouldering, sexy, villainous anti-heroes and her slow-burning simmering passion-filled dual PoV plots.. and this five star trilogy certainly didn’t disappoint. I also love her choice in the perfect narrators to bring her stories and characters to life and Michael and Natalie did an awesome job.

Great ending to the series

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. As stated earlier, I still think all three books could have been combined into one book. Once a deal is made with Lucian, Balto drives Cassini back to him. On the way, he changes his mind. It is obvious what Lucian will do to her physically and will pass her around to his guards. Balto offers himself and, of course, Lucian accepts so he can kill him. OMG! This was really good. Once again, Michael Ferraiuolo was awesome!

Not Her Usual 5 Star Book

I’m a huge fan of the author; however, this book didn’t do it for me. I’m very familiar with all the characters in her books, as well as the settings. I feel that this book lacked detail, steaming romance, and depth. It was bland. Again, I’m a huge fan of Penelope... and if you haven’t read many of her books- you should!

Not typical

I think this series has been one of my favorites. The ending reminded me of 50 Shades Freed. it is a little anticlimactic. while you kept waiting for something to happen the last few pages all you got was a romance that blossomed into a life neither character had pictured for themself.

I was not very impressed with this 3rd book..

I love Michael Ferraiuolo!! The 4 stars are all for him. He should have just narrated this entire book! If so I would have rated it higher. His female voice is better than the actual female that did the talking. UGH!! I usually like her better than this but the female read way to fast and that is very bad when I say this because I speed most of my books up because I don't like sloowww reading but she read so fast & flat and she didn't use any of the Italian accents like Michael does so it was horrible when she read in my opinion and she got to read way to much of this book. A few bits a pieces are fine. Her male coice IS AWFUL!!! As for the writer: It feels as if the writer didn't care much about this book. Not like the first two. It's almost was as if it was a different writer altogether. It seemed as if this was very rushed mainly in the more exciting and good parts of the damn book!! And then filled in with rymes and things that could have been left out. Maybe she had a ghost writer or something. IDK but please don't do this again. I usually love her books.

What I Deserves....Prefect Love

BALTO, BALTO, Balto the Skull King , I need a man like that. He knows how to Love and keep you Safe. His Love for Cassini is Fire 🔥 respect and more respect. When a man lay his life down for a woman not just any woman his Queen whom he loved from the first meeting. You could feel the Love between them. Ms. Penelope Sky you have done it again. I love your other books especially the Button's Series, Banker Series and my new favorite The Skull King Series. Ms. Sky you write with conviction, I can visualize and submerge myself, I feel the Love. I need a Balto in my LIFE. GREAT JOB. I LOVED IT.❤️
