Twist Me (Twist Me #1): A New Adult Dark Erotic Novel

Mozaika LLC

Book 1 in the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Dark Romance Trilogy

Kidnapped. Taken to a private island.

I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely.

Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful—a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.

My captor is an enigma. I don’t know who he is or why he took me. There is a darkness inside him—a darkness that scares me even as it draws me in.

My name is Nora Leston, and this is my story.

What reviewer's are saying about Julian's List:

“Wow! What a ride! A hot and sexy read!”~J.Jacobs

“This is one pursuit you don't want to miss. It’s HOT, SEXY, and very STEAMY." ~ Nancy, GR

“A 5 star read. I felt emotionally connected to the characters. Sadie and Julian have excellent chemistry.” ~ Kelsey Schuring

“Great book. It has a little bit of everything… steamy scenes, a strong female lead, humor, and tears.” ~ Kelly Freeman

"If you loved Vivian's List and Liam's List, you'll fall head over heels for Julian's Pursuit." ~ S. Reader

“I frickin’ LOVED it! So funny, so relatable, so witty, and so effing HOT! This book is a DEFINITE MUST READ!”~E. Smith

“The characters are real and fun. They made me smile, laugh, think, and fall.”~Berenice, Goodreads

“If you were smitten with Vivian and Liam, well Julian and Sadie will BLOW you away!”~ Susan, GR

“Julian is a man every woman should dream about.” ~Julx, Goodreads

“I am a big fan of romances that have a slow-build and just enough angst to give the story some meat, and this is one of them.” ~ K. Wofford

“A fantastic story! Sadie is not the Ice Queen she portrays, and neither is Julian the ‘player’ I feared he would be. The walls around Sadie’s heart are strong, but Julian is the PERFECT man to break them down. I fell in love with Julian from the beginning.” ~ Holly Robinson

“While most are familiar and love a bad boy and the girl next-door type of story, Haleigh Lovell drops a new scene for you to grasp. In this tale, the alpha is female and the object of her eye is a great guy with an amazing big heart. If you like a love story with a chase and slow build up... a steamy and sweet connection, then this will be the book for you.”~ Kelli, Goodreads

The first two books in the dark romance Capture Me trilogy, available for a limited time in one convenient, discounted bundle

“Yulia,” he whispers, staring down at me, and I know he feels it too, this pull, this visceral connection between us. He may have all the power, but in this moment, he’s as vulnerable as I am, caught in the grip of the same madness.


She fears him from the first moment she sees him.

Yulia Tzakova is no stranger to dangerous men. She grew up with them. She survived them. But when she meets Lucas Kent, she knows the hard ex-soldier may be the most dangerous of them all.

One night—that’s all it should be. A chance to make up for a failed assignment and get information on Kent’s arms dealer boss. When his plane goes down, it should be the end.

Instead, it's just the beginning.

He wants her from the first moment he sees her.

Lucas Kent has always liked leggy blondes, and Yulia Tzakova is as beautiful as they come. The Russian interpreter might’ve tried to seduce his boss, but she ends up in Lucas’s bed—and he has every intention of seeing her there again.

Then his plane goes down, and he learns the truth.

She betrayed him.

Now she will pay.


He’s determined to break her.

For Lucas Kent, his new prisoner is a maddening contradiction: compliant yet defiant, fragile yet strong. He needs to uncover her secrets, but doing so may ruin everything.

His obsession could destroy her.

She’s determined to escape.

For Yulia Tzakova, her captor is the man of both her dreams and her nightmares: tender one moment, cruel the next. She can’t let him crack her, but resisting him may leave her broken.

A moment of weakness could cost her everything.
