Crown of Lies

THREE YEARS
Since I ran away for the night, danced in New York streets, and almost got killed in an alley by two thieves. Until he showed up and saved me.
 
THREE DAYS
Since I threw a drink at the man my father expected me to marry, then found myself slammed against a wall with Penn Everett’s seductive voice whispering a proposal I couldn’t refuse.
 
THREE HOURS
To fall into hate with the man who reminded me of so many things and hid so much behind his lies. He couldn’t be the man who saved me three years ago…but there’s something so familiar…
 
THREE MINUTES
For our relationship to switch from no-strings to marriage. He announced it to my father–he’s ecstatic. He told my friends–they’re shocked. But he didn’t ask me, he commanded me–and I’m livid.
 
THREE SECONDS
For his lies to slowly steal my heart and make me believe, hope…trust.
 
THREE BREATHS
For his truth to destroy me.
