I’m one of four Willow daughters.
He’s the first-born son of the Scafoni family. And we have history.
For generations, the Scafoni family have demanded a sacrifice of us. A virgin daughter to atone for sins so old, we don’t even remember what they are anymore.
But when you have as much money as they do, you don’t play by the rules. You make them.
And Sebastian Scafoni makes all the rules.
The moment I saw him, I knew he would choose me. Even though the mark on my sheath declared me unclean. Even though my beautiful sisters stood beside me, offered to him, he still chose me.
He made me his.
And then he set out to break me.

I love these dark romances with old family curses and two people coming together by force! Sebastian is the firstborn son of the Scafoni family and Helena is the oldest of the Willow quadruplets. Because of a thousand year old curse the Scafoni sons are to take one of the Willow daughters; the firstborn chooses which one and then the brother have her for a year each.
Helena is the opposite of her sisters. She’s dark-haired where they are blond; she’s literally the dark to their golden. This makes her stand out and actually intrigues Sebastian to choose her. She’s full of fire and determined to find him and not submit to his demands.
Sebastian is intrigued by Helena. He sees the fire inside her eyes and wants to be the one to make her submit. There’s too much to his past and the whole history behind this curse. Since this is the first book of the duology, not all of our questions are answered, but we get to find out some information! His younger brother Ethan and his stepmother Lucinda are seriously sick. I hated them from the start and I was worried to see how everything with them would go down.
Helena and Sebastian’s relationship is complicate and messed up. When he’s gentle with her, she freezes him out in order to not get attached. I believe that Sebastian does have feelings for her but the whole situation they are in is really complicated.
I got sucked to the story from the story. This is a really good and dark story that I definitely enjoyed! Natasha Knight really knows the way to write an amazing dark romance!! That ending left me wanting for more and I can’t wait to get my hands on Torn to find out what happens next!!!
