My husband is cruel, ruthless, and despicable.

I hate him with every fiber of my being.

The only reason I haven't killed him or tried to run away is because of the promise I made. I sold myself to save someone I loved...and this is the price I have to pay.

I was sitting alone in a bar when the most handsome man walked inside. Striking blue eyes, cheekbones as sharp as glass, and a muscular body fit for a war. He was gorgeous. I couldn't take my eyes off him. When he bought me a drink, I didn't say no. I'd been unfulfilled for so long, and I wanted a real man for the night. My husband had his affairs so why couldn't I?

I noticed the peculiar ring on his right hand, a diamond carved into a skull. If only I'd known what that meant, I would have known who this man was.

The Skull King.

A man more cruel and ruthless than my own husband.

    okay.....WHAT AN ENDING. Balto went ice cold! That was something I didn’t see coming. And I like that!!! Unexpected... definitely has me EXTREMELY excited for Skull Crusher. Ugh, I need a drink after that intensity. You go, Pene. You know how to keep things fresh and interesting after all of these stories you have written.

    Balto just might beat out Crow in my Pene Alpha loves. I have been anxious for her to write about a male who isn’t afraid to admit he likes the female lead in the first book and she not be deceiving him somehow! I can tell it’s only getting started. With 2 more books to go I can’t wait to see how this all plays out!!

    I ❤️ the story plot between Balto & Cassini. He struggles with with being the villain & finding himself fallen a beautiful woman that isn’t afraid of him. I can’t wait to see how the rest of their relationship unfolds. I am never disappointed when I read a book by Ms. Sky.
  • Can’t wait to read more !

    I’ve always had this idea of what a member of the skull kings was like and let me tell you I was wrong. The characters of the book are so much better than I could imagine. I’m looking froward to reading the next book and if it’s anything like the frost it will be GOOD.

    The Skull Kings have been a powerful and ruthless group, one that most tried to avoid unless they needed heavy backup. Balto is their fearless and arrogant leader. Only Penelope Sky can take a villan and make them a human that we like. He becomes fixated on a beautiful woman, and offers to provide an out to the miserable life she is stuck in. Cassini follows her family value of you are only as good as your word. She accepts her fate of spending her life with another villain that she is disgusted by. Balto is shocked to find out she is married to his enemy, he has already killed his brother why not take his wife. Come on May, the excitement of this series will be amazing

    Can I just say that Penelope is just a rock star?! The Skull King was amazing!!! Soo much story! So much detail and real ness, a constant gasp type of read! I love all of Penelope’s books, been a fan for years! This has got to be a new favorite! I love the story line and how it’s not a typical predictable book. Constant page turner, needing and wanting more. I can’t wait to see how the story continues in The Skull Crusher!!!
