Synopsis

[Warning: Mature content. No rape] "Across the past, present, and future, wherever you may hide from me, I will traverse every single timeline to find you and ravish you." Princess Evangeline Whitlock - an alluring young woman with rare purple eyes and exceptional abilities in medicine. A life of simplicity was all she ever sought. But, unbeknownst to her, destiny had woven a tapestry of fate, gifting her with a power that could sway the very tides of her kingdom. Her life takes a tumultuous turn when she meets an accident and mysteriously travels back in time, only to fall into the arms of a man who soon refuses to leave her out of his sight. Would Eva succeed in breaking free from the clutches of the devious king, who would stop at nothing to conquer her heart, body, soul, and blood? King Maxen Regan - a ruthless, blood-thirsty man, whose mere presence was enough to instill terror in the hearts of his enemies and make them tremble in fear. But beneath his predatory allure lay a shattered and desolate soul, impervious to any efforts of restoration. And the only person who possessed the ability to heal his broken soul was - her. Unfortunately, his love was believed to be a curse, and those who dared to fall for him were destined to meet a tragic end. Could Maxen save the love of his life from the depths of his own torment? ________________ Excerpt: "Do you really think you can escape from me now, after what you just did?" his tone held a hint of mocking as he watched her nervously stepping backwards. Lowering his head, he shook it in amusement and his low chuckle echoed throughout the forest, "Where has the brave girl disappeared to?" Eva's heart lurched in her chest when she saw him closing the distance between them, slowly advancing towards her like a predator closing in on its prey, ready to pounce. "You have the nerve to make me beg you, but you are not brave enough to face the consequences?" his deep voice sent shivers running down her spine. She softly gulped before jutting her chin out, attempting to put on a brave face as if she was not afraid of him. However, her heart betrayed her, and a knowing smirk appeared on his face.  But in the next moment, the smile on his face vanished, replaced by an expression of hunger. And Eva took another step backwards, only to realize that she had nowhere to escape from this devil when her back hit the bark of a tree behind her. Her purple eyes closed instinctively when she saw him raise his hand. And her breath hitched as she felt him trace his knuckles across her cheek, before slowly trailing them down the length of her neck, leaving a trail of goosebumps in their wake. "Since you want to run away from me, I will give you a chance. You will run... and I will chase you. And if I catch you..," he breathed, leaning forward to whisper in her ear, "I will devour you little by little... until there is nothing left of you." She shivered, as his hand went to the nape of her neck and his fingers weaved through her midnight hair, causing a hurricane to stir inside her chest. He forced her to meet his gaze, curling his fingers in her luscious mane and tugging it enough to elicit a mewl from her lips. "Now, run, princess. Run as fast as you can and you better pray to god that I don't find you", a devilish smirk played on his lips as he loosened his grip on her. Something akin to a dark desire flashed across his deep red eyes as they slowly started to turn golden yellow, causing Eva's eyes to widen in alarm. A gasp escaped her lips and with her heart hammering against her chest, she swiftly turned around and fled from him.
