Tanner and Sammy go on a quest for revenge.
“Tanner fired three silenced shots at the punk playing video games and watched him tumble off the side of the bed and onto the floor.
The man’s two companions were in the living room at the end of the hall. They were oblivious to their friend’s death, because one of them was asleep with the aid of whiskey, and the other had his eyes closed while wearing headphones.
The man who was asleep died without ever waking, as Tanner jammed a knife past his ribs and into his heart.”

The first time I met Fitz or to most of the world Duke Fitzegerald Heraldo Belleville, I punched him in the throat.
I was actually aiming for his chin, but he was a few years older, clearly not wiser, but at least taller.
He started wheezing on his candy cane.
And well, the rest is history.
Hate replaced what could have been friendship, and for the rest of my teen years, I watched him flirt with every single breathing female.
I hated him.
Plotted his death with a smile on my face.
And knew that my first decree as Queen would be to chop off his head.
Except now that I’m finally old enough to inherit the title, there’s one tiny little slip-up.
I need a man by my side.
