The price of survival…
Gabriel Miller swept into my life like a storm. He tore down my father with cold retribution, leaving him penniless in a hospital bed. I quit my private all-girl’s college to take care of the only family I have left.
There’s one way to save our house, one thing I have left of value.
A forbidden auction…
Gabriel appears at every turn. He seems to take pleasure in watching me fall. Other times he’s the only kindness in a brutal underworld.
Except he’s playing a deeper game than I know. Every move brings us together, every secret rips us apart. And when the final piece is played, only one of us can be left standing.
THE PAWN is a full-length contemporary novel from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren about revenge and seduction in the game of love.
The power of pleasure…
Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what’s mine.
He thinks he’s beaten me. He thinks he’s won. What he doesn’t realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.
And the game has only just begun.

THE KNIGHT is book two in the Endgame series from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren about revenge and seduction in the game of love.
THE PAWN (ENDGAME #1)
In the myth of the Minotaur, Theseus, son of King Aegeus, decides that he will slay the monster. He runs the beast through with a sword and then retraces his steps using the string, thus saving all the sacrifices that year and in the future. I’ve reached the center of the maze. I’m facing my very own Minotaur.
Skye Warren is one of my go-to dark romance authors. Her books never fail to enthrall, entertain and excite. ‘The Pawn’ is trademark Skye Warren: a sheltered, innocent young woman, smart but faced with almost insurmountable odds against her, and a dark hero, who seems unbearably cruel but who might just have a soft side.
Avery’s whole world has collapsed and she faces loses her family’s home. Her father is dying and she has nowhere to turn. She agrees to an auction, which goes against everything she believes in. Enter Gabriel Miller, dangerous, handsome and ruthless. Even though he was the cause of her family’s downfall, can he possibly be her savior?
He steps back with a quiet laugh. “You can run away, little virgin. But you’ll come back.” I’m very afraid he’s right.
Avery is afraid to trust Gabriel but she has nowhere else to turn. Gabriel turns out to be sensual and protective but even more mysterious than Avery first thought. He is her father’s enemy but he can’t stay away from Avery.
“What am I then?”
“You’re innocent. And I’m going to ruin you.”
The certainty in his voice chills me.
I devoured this dark and sexy book in one sitting. Skye Warren is the BEST at writing uber-sexy, controlling men and Gabriel Miller is one I won’t forget! ‘The Pawn’ is a fast-paced tale of revenge and control, perfect for lovers of dark romance. Avery and Gabriel are perfect together and I was thrilled to have the second book to start immediately after finishing!
“You can have my body, I think. But you can’t touch my heart.”
“I’m acting like a man who got what he paid for. Excellent service. Would you like a review on Yelp? Five stars.”
THE KNIGHT (ENDGAME #2)
“I want to own every inch of your skin, to be the only man who touches you, who tastes you. You think I wouldn’t bid on a woman? That I shouldn’t bid on you, of all people? I’ll spend every cent I have, break every goddamn law to keep you.”
The second book of the Endgame series begins right were The Pawn ended. Avery has really hit rock bottom. She is living in a rundown motel and has lost everything. But she is determined to get back what is precious to her and ‘The Knight’ is another deliciously dark romance that features some great characters and writing.
Gabriel really cares for Avery. He is outwardly cruel but their scenes together are everything I love about Skye Warren’s writing. He was almost brutally cruel in the first book but here, he seems to finally show his true feelings. But Avery wants nothing more then to get revenge on the man she believes led to her father’s downfall. Make no mistake, Gabriel Miller is still a harsh and brutal figure, and he still remains mysterious.
I love the supporting characters in this book and would love to read more about Avery’s mother! The circumstances surrounding her death become more and more mysterious and I hope that the third book in this series tells more of her story. ‘The Knight’ ends on a surprising note and I can’t wait to read ‘The Castle,’ the third book in this series. Skye Warren once again delivers the goods in this story. This series is dark, very sensual and dangerous. Highly recommend these books for all lovers of dark and sexy romance.
