A Lord is to marry after he graduates from Barrington University, an elite college for the rich. A Lady’s job is to help him fit into a world unaware of his secret society. The Lord does not get to choose who he spends the rest of his life with. But there is always an exception to the rule. And I just so happen to be his.


I was to wed a Lord of my parents’ choosing. Wealth can’t buy you everything, or I would have had freedom years ago. Instead, my strict parents made sure I lived a dull life in a mansion resembling a prison.

But on my wedding day, I was handed over to another man—an even more ruthless Lord that my family hated. 

Tyson Riley Crawford only wanted me for his revenge. I’m nothing more than a debt to be paid. I didn’t have a say in the matter. So when I said my vows before the congregation, I knew I’d break them. Consequences be damned.

Too bad I underestimated my husband and didn’t realize he was more determined to punish me than I was to succeed at escaping. He’ll make me choke on those words I used to bind myself to him.

Yet even he couldn’t have seen what our future held. Ultimately, we’re all just pawns in a game that none of us can win unless you’re willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice … and even that may not be enough.

If you've read any of Shantel Tessier's books set in the Lord's world, you can expect more of the same dark, violent, filthy fun in The Sacrifice!

Tyson is out for revenge, and Laikin is going to pay with her body, mind, and soul. He has her on her knees, sporting a shock collar, and bleeding for him in less 24 hours. Their titillating tale of treachery and torment turned love isn't for the faint of heart.

While this story can be read as a standalone, Tyson makes multiple appearances in The Ritual and The Sinner. If you're interested in reading the aforementioned titles, it's best to do so in publishing order IMO. Though we may have learned tidbits about Tyson in previous books, we finally get a glimpse into his past and find out all the events that lead up to him giving up his high rank and power in the society.

The Sacrifice is full of lies, betrayal, murder, degradation, and all the kinky fucking sex your perverted little heart could hope for! Tyson is a possessive, OTT alpha that likes Lake best when she's restrained, gagged, and coming on his cock, so be prepared for A LOT of that. I was expecting a little exhibitionism to be thrown in somewhere based on Tyson's history, but that was not the case. He doesn't want anyone's eyes on Lake's body aside from his own, and despite his reasons for marrying her, he will literally kill anyone that lays a finger on Lake. He's extremely protective of her right from the start.

Lake is confused and upset to find out that Tyson hijacked her wedding to another man, not because she loved her husband to be, but because Tyson was engaged to her sister, Whitney. Whitney was murdered years ago when she and Tyson were together, and Lake suspects he had something to do with it. As a result, she would rather murder him than marry him, but as a daughter in the society, she has no control over her life or future.

Shantel Tessier brings the spice and suspense in this sinister story of pain, pleasure, sadism, and savagery! Tyson and Lake's love is intense, depraved, and slightly unhinged. Strap in tight, and prepare yourself for a dirty, unconventional romance with a trigger list in the double digits.

Fans of twisted stories of love that come from unlikely circumstances, this one's for you!


Make sure to grab this all-new dark revenge standalone romance TODAY!!
