I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.

Titan, an all-new, must-read dark and twisted romance from bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now!



I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.

A King is supposed to rule his Kingdom using any means necessary to demand respect.

I’m not a weak man… A King kneels to no one.

I’ve only ever cared about one other person in my life, but the thing is, she never belonged to me. And before I could tell her how I felt, she left.

Now she’s returned, needing someone to save her.

Emilee York was always meant to be mine, and I’ll see to it that happens. I always get what I want, even if that means I have to take it.

And she’s no different. She’ll be my queen, one way or the other.


When I left Sin City behind me, I had no plans to return. I avoided everyone, even my friends, to stay in my bubble. I’ve always been the kind to pull away and run when things get difficult.

But one phone call changed everything, and I was racing back. If only I had known what was waiting for me.

Titan reappeared like a ghost haunting me.

One look and I knew he recognized me. I never forgot him or what we shared. Those feelings that no one else knew existed between us.

I ignored them back then, but now they are more intense than ever.

“Get on your knees…” He demanded I kneel for him.

I tried to act like he didn’t affect me, but he knew. He remembered the way I reacted when he would touch me. And just like he was taught to do—he used my weaknesses against me.

He staked his claim, and I became his queen to use how he saw fit.

What makes it worse is that I crave him, and when I kneeled, it was willingly.

But was it for nothing?

Titan steps up to me.

“Don’t …”

“Look who found her voice,” he muses.

“Shut up, Titan.” I snap, pulling my cell out of my pocket and dial Jasmine’s number. It rings once, twice. Three times. I pull it from my ear, and he snatches it from my hand. “Hey …”

His smile just widens. “So you do remember me.”

Like I could forget. “Give me my phone back.” I order reaching out for it.

He places it in the front pocket of his jeans. “Drop to your knees.”

“Excuse me?” I blink.

His dark blue eyes look me up and down, and the corners of his lips turn up like he knows a secret. And he does. Several of them about me. “Drop to your knees and I’ll give it back to you.”

My blood boils at his words. “Fuck you!”

He steps into me, pressing my back into my door, and I gasp in surprise. I thought he was big, but his hard chest presses into mine, and I have to tilt my head back to look him in the eyes. Even with my heels on, this man towers over me. I always liked that about him. He’s the tallest of all the Kings.

The scent of his cologne hits my nose, and I hate how much I like it. It brings back old memories that I want to drown in, but I make myself stay here in the present. The light pole I parked under casts a shadow over his chiseled face, making it glow like a ghost from my past.

“We came close that one time.” His eyes go to my chest, and I know he can feel my heart pound against his. He reaches up and runs his knuckles over my neck. His skull ring burns the skin, making me shiver. “So fucking close. It was the only time I could actually tolerate you.”

“Titan.” I swallow, trying to calm my nerves.

“Yeah, Em?” he asks as his eyes roam my face.

A fucking whimper comes out when he calls me by my old nickname. Then my breath quickens when he places his hands on my face, caging me in.



My ARC Review:


OMG I couldn’t wait to read this one after being introduced to the Kings in Code of Silence, you just knew they were going to be something special….. dark, twisted, a law unto themselves, sinfully hot, powerful and everything goes!!!

Emilee knows the Kings from college, she went to school with them, was in a relationship (if you can call it that) with Bones whilst there, but it was destined not to work, and she left her hometown with no plans of returning. But her mother gets very sick and whilst she is planning her move back to look after her mum, her dad dies very suddenly, leaving Emilee to pick up the pieces.

She expected to received everything in his will…. business, house, etc., but it seems he left it all to his business partner. He’s willing to help her out and continue to pay for her mum’s medical expenses and let her live in the house, in exchange for sexual favours. She has no one to turn to and is in a desperate situation.

She still has her two best friends – Haven (from Code of Silence) and Jasmine, who she’s tried to keep in touch with, but it’s Jasmine that comes to her rescue and suggests they go and become Queens for the Kings. This is where she again meets Titan, who runs the Queens, who she has had fantasies about since college, where they shared a kiss, and where Titan watched her with Bones in the locker room. She knows if anyone can help her out it is the Kings, but at what price?

Their past encounter has their chemistry and attraction exploding off the pages, they are hawt together!!! Titan has wanted Emilee for a long time, thought he had gotten over her, but now she’s back he siezes his chance with her. He is dominant and very protective of her and will stop at nothing to keep her safe. He is also willing to make all her fantasies come true!!!

Emilee is a strong a caring heroine, needing to do what needs to be done to protect her family. Titan proves to be just the thing she needs to sort out her life and her family whilst being under his protection and care.

A stunning read from start to finish, a thoroughly engrossing plot line full of secrets and twists that will keep you on the edge as you read. There are some seriously hot and sexy scenes (including a M/F/M) that may well melt your panties right off!! I loved the side characters, Jasmine is an absolute hoot, and I can’t wait to get the backgrounds to the other three Kings – Grave, Cross and Bones!! Highly recommended reading for dark romance lovers out there!
