The Dark Doctor

JB Duvane

Abby thought she was running away from her problems, but she wound up running into the arms of her worst nightmare.
“…from this point forward your will is no longer your own. You belong to me.”

I thought I had found the perfect guy. Jake was handsome and sexy and had eyes that could get me to do just about anything. The problem? The thought of being in love scared the hell out of me, so I called it quits and ran before I got in any deeper, driving off into a crazy winter storm. When I woke up the next day I was in a strange hospital and slowly came to the realization that I was being drugged and held there against my will…by my ex-boyfriend Jake. He claims he’s someone else though…a doctor in this dark, creepy private hospital in the middle of nowhere…but I know it’s him, and I don’t know how I’m going to get out of here.

This is a standalone novel of 44,000 words with gothic elements, dark sexual themes, kidnapping, nightmares, insanity and has a HEA.

Did he actually think he could get away with holding me here against my will? I thought as I sat there and felt my heart sink into my stomach. I realized that I hadn’t said a word to anyone about going anywhere. I wanted to be alone and I didn’t want to be bothered by questions or gestures of sympathy. I figured maybe my boss at work would wonder where I was and call my cell phone a few times, but they sure as hell wouldn’t send out a search party. And Maxwell might wonder where I had disappeared to but I didn’t know if she’d take any action into her own hands since she was pretty preoccupied with her own life most of the time. I barely talked to my parents more than once a month so I was sure that they wouldn’t miss hearing from me for quite a while. I was notorious in my family for not being very good about phone calls or emails. 
Oh my God, no one knows where I am and no one’s going to come looking for me. This man is crazy. This man that I thought I knew is fucking out of his mind.
I tried to think of anything I could say to him to get him to let me go? 
“Well, doctor, as you can see I’ve recovered from the accident. I don’t know what other recovery you have in mind, but I do need to get back to my job. I’m sure they will be wondering why I haven’t shown up or called for a week. Perhaps we could make an appointment to see each other on an outpatient basis.”
The corners of his mouth started to curl again and my heart sank even further when I realized he wasn’t going to play the game my way. He had it all figured out in his head. It was his game, after all. He stood up and walked around his desk, stopping to lean on the front edge a few feet in front of me. He crossed one arm over his chest and rested the elbow of the other on it while rubbing his chin. 
“Your place of work has already been contacted, Abby. They’ve been told that you’re taking an indefinite leave of absence.”
“Contacted? By who? They won’t just take a stranger’s word for it. That’s ridiculous!”
“I had my nurse fax a letter from my office and they accepted it without question. I’m sure they’ll be happy to hear from you when you’ve recovered, though,” he said with a twinkle in his eyes. 
I couldn’t look at his horrible face any longer. He just seemed to be standing there, mocking me and laughing at me. 
“According to my records, you were suffering from a breakdown when you were admitted, Abby. It’s my understanding that the accident was a direct result of your breakdown.”
“According to your records.” I looked up at him again incredulously. “What records? Where are your records? Let me see the re…”
And…it is my recommendation that you stay here for further observation and recovery.”
“Your recommendation? So, if it’s just a recommendation then I’m free to leave, right?”
He held my gaze with the coldest look I had ever seen in my life. He wasn’t going to let me go.

When the games you play involve lies and manipulation, the consequences can be more horrifying that you can imagine. Sometimes the only way out is to give in to your forbidden desires.

Zoe is like family to me.
I’ve practically raised her ever since her dad checked out with his gambling addiction.
Now he’s dead, but still owes millions to some gangsters,
and they want to take Zoe as a payoff.
Then they plan on selling her to recoup their losses. 
She doesn’t know anything about this deal. 
I can’t bear to tell her what her dad has done. 
I’ve tried everything to pay them what they say they’re owed. 
But they’re still after both of us and time is running out.
I’m terrified these men will catch up with her and I’ll never see her again.
But more than that, I’m terrified of the feelings I have for her. 
Of what might happen between the two us if she stays with me. 

I hate Evan. 
He’s always trying to run my life.
He humiliated me, practically dragging me off the street in front of my friends.
And now he’s telling me I have to get on a plane and go with him. 
But he won’t tell me where. 
He won’t even tell me why.
I’m an adult now and I’m not going to let him treat me like this.
The only problem is …
If I hate him so much, why can’t I stop thinking about him?
As I’m crawling out a window, making my escape from him …
Why am I so sad? 
And why do I want so badly to feel his arms around me and his lips on mine?

Evan and Zoe both know there are rules about falling in love.
Unfortunately, their hearts don’t want to play by the rules.

Forbidden Love is a romantic suspense novella of 22k words and is intended for adults. There are some dark scenes that may not be suitable for all readers.

Dark Love: A Dark Romance Duet includes both parts of the Dark Love series.  

Dark Love: Part One

Charlotte couldn't escape ... from the prison Raymond put her in or from the dark love she found with him. Especially when she realized that the darkness was inside her too... 

I ran away from my crap life of stripping and living with my father in a trash heap of a trailer. 
I thought I was headed toward freedom but I woke up in another prison. 
A prison that was built just for me. 
He knows things about me that no one should. 
He sees things in me that I can't see. 
I don't want to be here. 
But I don't want to leave him either. 
He's a monster for keeping me prisoner. 
But I'm a monster too for loving the dark, dirty things he does to me. 

I know I messed up. 
I've been alone in this house for far too long. 
Alone except the servants that skulk around in the darkness. 
But then I found Charlotte and I had to have her. 
I had to take her. 
I have to make her mine. 
Now I don't want to live without her. 
But if I can't convince her to stay ... 
they won't let either one of us live. 

Dark Love: Part Two 

Even though she was free, Charlotte found herself in another prison. She was a prisoner inside her own heart. 

I set her free. 
I let her walk out that door, but now she's in grave danger. 
And it's all my fault. 
If they kill her it will be because of me. 
I have to find her ... and bring her back. 
I don't want to live this life if it's without Charlotte. 

No matter where I go I'm in a prison of some kind. 
My father's trailer ... 
A jail cell ... 
Even this beautiful island feels like a prison. 
But I know that the prison cell I'm really in is inside me. 
I want Raymond's love ... I need it. 
But I'm afraid that the only way I can truly have it is to let him go. 

Dark Love: A Dark Romance Duet is the complete series and has a HEA. It is intended for mature readers.

His to Take

His to Keep 

His Forever

Series description:

His to Take:

Adrian was my first love. 
The boy I'd always compared all the others to. 
But now he's a man and he's holding me captive. 
I'd heard the stories for years but I didn't believe them. 
My Adrian couldn't have done the things they say he did to all the other girls.
But now that I'm with him I see that it's true.
I know he's a monster ... and I'm terrified of him. 
But I'm also terrified of the feelings I still have for him ... and what those feelings mean about me.

Brooklyn was the only one who ever saw my true self.
But that was seven years ago ... and it might as well have been a dream.
I had to leave her behind. It was the only way I could protect her from the truth about my family and our business. 
But now a debt must be paid and she's been brought here. 
And my father has ordered me to break her ... to ruin her. 
If I follow his orders it will destroy me. 
But if I don't ... my father will.

His to Keep:

I thought I was doing the right thing.
I got her away from him ...
the man my father sold Brooklyn to.
But now I'm afraid I can't keep her safe.
From them ... or from myself ...

I want everything Adrian does to me.
Even though he doesn't understand it.
Even though he believes he's hurting me.
I want it and I want him.
But I'm scared for my life and I'm scared for us ...
now that I know we share the same father.

Can Brooklyn and Adrian both escape from their own pasts, and the secrets that threaten to ruin everything between them?
Can they escape from the men who will stop at nothing to take her away from him and to the man who now owns her?

His Forever:

Held captive by a sadistic member of the mafia, Brooklyn doesn't see any way out other than to take her own life. Will Adrian reach her in time to save her from a fate worse than death at the hands of the man who believes he now owns her? 


I can't live without her …
and I won't give up knowing Brooklyn needs me to save her.
My only hope is to find the Russian mobster that took her away from me … 
and kill him. 
If I don't, both of our lives are over. 


There's no way Adrian will ever find me in this place. 
So I'll have to take my fate into my own hands. 
I hope Adrian will forgive me for leaving this world.
But I can't let this man ruin me. 
Adrian, wherever you are, please know that I will love you forever.
