"No Fuentes can leave the family."
For centuries the Fuentes family has harbored dark secrets. Secrets involving magic and a sinister legacy which they are willing to kill to protect.
Leo Fuentes was the first to try and break free. Now his only concern is that his father, Renato, not discover the location of Leo's son Damian. But Renato has ways of finding people, and Damian is the one who will ultimately pay the price for Leo's desertion of the family.
This prequel to Primogénito tells the story of Damian's kidnapping and torture at the hands of his grandfather and uncles. It also tells the story of Damian and Jenn. Of their love for each other and their determination to let nothing come between them. Of their resolve to hold on to hope even when it seems all hope is lost.
