“If a kiss has a color, this one is the muted shades of the sky overhead, a ménage à trois of midnight and indigo and moonshine silver.

Kennedy Ryan, The Kingmaker

Kennedy Ryan, The Kingmaker

Kennedy Ryan, The Kingmaker
“We were the last tribe to surrender. We have warrior in our blood.”

“Wow,” Berkeley says. “I didn’t know that.”
Kennedy Ryan, The Kingmaker
