Publisher's Summary

Includes a bonus deleted scene! Book three in the USA Today best-selling White Monarch trilogy. Complete series available now.

I’ve become a queen to the forsaken, a leader to thieves, and the wife of a man who instills fear in all who cross his path. He was the husband I didn’t want. Now, I can’t fathom life without my king.

I should’ve been ready for anything. Like the caterpillar that feeds on poison during metamorphosis, I was raised in the dangerous world of cartel crime. But nothing could’ve prepared me for Cristiano de la Rosa, his brother’s poison, or the Calavera cartel.

This is still a story about a love strong enough to topple households, unite enemies, and divide brothers. Resilient enough to bring down those who would try to destroy it...and selfless enough to make the ultimate sacrifice.

But I was warned, and so were you. Death’s day always comes.

This time, it will find what was once a caterpillar is now a butterfly - and hell hath no fury like the White Monarch.

I LOVED.. LOVED.. LOVED IT

Right through the whole wonderful trilogy I was one hundred percent invested in this couple’s rollercoaster relationship as the pull of their chemistry.. the push of the situation.. and the passionate dedication Cristiano had for his beloved Natalie, was shaken and tested over and over again. Natalie’s metamorphosis from a naive virginal pawn in the first book to Cristiano’s strong feisty heroic Queen willing to fight or die by the man she loved, had already gone through so many complex emotional challenges already. Yet, in this final book, it stops being a battle between a devoted husband and his unwilling wife because Natalie finally puts all the puzzle pieces together and learns the truth about her husband, learns who the villains were behind her mother’s murder and finally learns how to trust, forgive and love Cristiano.

Jessica Hawkins has written a multi-layered gem of a story that drew me in from the start and didn’t let me go. The passion and protectiveness Cristiano had for Natalie was beautiful, his dirty mouth and descriptions of what he was going to do to her was.. well pheweee!! and his love shone throughout the scenes. Natalie’s nineteen year old naivety and rejection slowly morphed into a twenty year old’s understanding and coming to terms with the challenges and rewards of the world around her. Of what her husband stood for and what he was offering her.. and, as her awareness grew, so did respect and undying love blossom for her loyal husband. But their enemies weren't all vanquished, a snake in the grass was slithering towards them and devastation and heartbreak was is in the wind.

Worth a credit? Yes, yes and yes.. this outstanding well-everythinged trilogy packs a mighty punch, Spectacular dual POV narration by Emma and Brian brought the weighty myriad of feels, the characters, the action-packed unique bulky trilogy and the hold-your-breath tension, the sexy as f’k and the swoon-worthy scenes to life.. and Emma your hero’s voice was one hundred percent believable and phenomenal. Eighty percent told from Natalie’s PoV. Yes, the heroine was a little younger than I normally like but her journey gave her the strength and understanding she was lacking at the start and made her a survivor.

FROM THE STORY LINE TO THE NARRATORS, A+++++++++++

I read the mixed reviews on this book (and series as a whole) but was tired of scrolling books and decided to take my chances. I was not disappointed and in fact binge listened to all 3 books in this series in 4 days. I actually bought my own credits to purchase the last book, that is how much I was in love with the story and needed to hear the ending.

Some of the story line is a tad unrealistic and extravagant but it just stands to pull you further into the story. I loved escaping from my mundane life to hear of luxury and power, suspense and passion. Parts of this series actually had me talking out loud to myself willing the character to listen to what I had to say. The twist and turns and unknowns are nonstop. It was just the refresh and mental exercise I needed.

I am VERY picky with narration. These narrators are spot on. They are clear, easy to understand but have such a quality to their voices. ESPECIALLY Cristiano's!!! MmmmMmmm! Take the chance on this series, you will not be disappointed!

Great ending!

This book alone made up for books 1&2! What a wild ride! Overall, I enjoyed the whole series. I laugh, got mad at the MCs and cried at the end.

Narration was good! No complaints.

Well, now.

What was supposed to be a "in between/waiting for a different book's release date" purchase is officially now on my top 5 list. And that's a hard-earned award. I won't go through the plot...no doubt other reviewers have thoroughly done so already. I can, however, speak to the story's sense of imbalance, which keeps you on the edge of your seat. The characters are well fleshed out and interesting. There are a few overused phrases (can't remember them atm), and a few eye roll moments. Nothing that will deter you from loving this series.

Random separate note: Brian Pallino IS Christian Fox, who co-reads. I'm so tired of trying to track down Christian Fox 's narration that I officially give up. He wins. He uses so many different names that I stopped jotting them down. If he doesn't want us to find him, I won't bother hunting anymore.

Cristiano and Natalia!

The transformation of Natalia from the sweet and innocent woman who was thrust into a marriage she didn’t want into this fierce and fiery woman that we now see was amazing to watch. She has proven that she is her own woman with her own thoughts and opinions, and she isn’t about to bow to anyone’s orders and that includes her husband.

The transformation of Cristiano was amazing to watch as well. The man who appeared to be cold and unfeeling shows that although he can be ruthless when it comes to business when it comes to Natalia he has a gentler side. He has enjoyed watching Natalia become the woman she was meant to be and he will do whatever is necessary to see her flourish.

Full of suspense, secrets, and twists this story takes you on wild ride but there is no doubting the intense chemistry and epic love that they share and the fact that not only are they man and wife but partners as well. The narrators were a perfect choice for the characters as they delivered an emotional and suspenseful story.

All the stars!!!

Jessica Hawkins has completed the White Monarch Trilogy and my heart is full! It brings our story full circle with twists and turns you just do not see coming. Cristiano's love for Natalia burns hot, evident in every move he makes. It may take a while, but this girl acclimates to her new life, understands it and her feelings are growing. But there is that ever nagging in the back of her head about his guilt with her mother's death and the deal he made with his brother to marry her. Will it ever stop? Hawkins has us tied up in knots as we learn and love this couple. It takes us on a journey of deception and redemption, danger and passion. Complex characters, interesting story line, slow burning passion, what more can you ask for? I loved every minute of this series!

Hawkins concludes her series narration with the fabulous team she assembled. Emma Wilder shines in the darkness creating Natalia into the strong woman she is. Brian Pallino with his fantastic accent wins our heart with his portrayal of the dark and delicious Cristiano and Gomez Pugh comes through with one of the best deceptive voices as Diego. This cast brought out the best aspects of the story, adding their nuances to the characters to give it depth. Loved them!

I can't believe this is over.

I'm sitting here clutching my chest since this book give me a literal panic attack. The twists and turns, the angst it all had me with tears in my eyes and so many emotions I couldn't even handle it half the time. I knew this author would give us an ending to end all, but I couldn't have envisioned that! If you're hesitant to pick up work by this author or this series, implore you to give it and the author a chance. You will not regret it. All the White Monarch stars. I volunteered to listen and review a complimentary copy of this. All opinions are my own.

You need to experience this series

My only downside is that it didn’t have enough steam scenes, but the story is so brilliant that I forgive Jessica 😊
