With those three words, my boss gives me a gift: permission to kidnap and keep the woman I’ve wanted for years.
Ever since we were teenagers, I’ve denied my desire for Sofia. Despite her father’s involvement in running our cocaine empire, Caesar Hernández has carefully sheltered her from the brutal realities of our world. She’s always been far too innocent and pure for me to drag her out of her charmed life and into my depravities.
But Caesar chose to betray my ruthless boss, Adrián Rodríguez. He’ll have to prove his loyalty once again if he doesn’t want any harm to come to his precious daughter. I have her now, and he’s well aware of my sadistic proclivities.
I tried to save her from this, but I can’t fight my savage nature when Sofia is in my home and under my command. She’ll learn to obey me unquestioningly if she wants to earn any of her freedoms back. Sofia’s going to be my good girl, fulfilling all the dark fantasies I’ve suppressed for years.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep my pretty hostage. If anyone tries to steal her from me, I’ll start a war to protect my most precious possession.
Sofia is mine, and I’ll never let her go.
Julia Sykes is the USA Today bestselling author of the Impossible Series. She has always kept dark stories tucked away in her mind, so she was thrilled when she discovered that other people actually want to read them. Her books blend romance, suspense, and BDSM.
You can usually find Julia in Starbucks with a venti iced coffee clutched in her hand (two pumps of mocha, liberal half and half). If she's not in Starbucks, you will find her with a glass of prosecco in hand, probably reading Harry Potter. Again.

The longer I remain trapped with him, the more I come to suspect that I'm not the only captive in his brother's home. Andrés' scars go deeper than the wicked furrows carved into his flesh, his pain reflected in the dark demands he imposes upon me. His obsession is twisted and wrong, but maybe I'm twisted, too.
Do I want to be rescued from him? Or is he the one who truly needs saving?
Note: This book can be read as a standalone dark romance novel. The suggested reading order for the Captive Series is as follows:
Claiming My Sweet Captive
Captive Ever After
He bought me to break my body. Instead, he broke my heart.
I stumbled into the worst possible place at the worst possible time.
And now I’m bent over and bare in my boss’s bed.
I always thought the stories that people told about Luke Hanley were too far-fetched.
But when I saw him and his thugs execute a man in an alley, I knew suddenly:
Everything they said was true.
He’s a cold-blooded killer, a ruthless mafia don responsible for every crime in the city.
They say he uses women until he’s bored, then disposes of them.
And I’m about to be next.
His soldiers had me bound and gagged as they took me to the don’s penthouse.
I figured this would be the end of me.
A bullet in the skull and an unmarked grave.
But to my surprise, Luke offers me a deal:
He’ll spare my life…
In exchange for my complete and utter submission.
I have to let him use me, bend me, break me as he pleases.
And I have to keep my mouth sealed shut.
At first, I’m nothing more than a mafioso’s ragged toy.
But as the savage, sweaty nights tick past, something becomes more and more clear to me:
There’s a lonely man behind the mobster mask.
And I’m falling hard for him.
One sets my body on fire.
The other makes me tremble.
But they say I don't have to choose.
They both want me. Together. The three of us.
I was meant to be theirs: Joseph, my sweet first love, and Marco, his dark and dangerous best friend. After Marco steals me away one night, Joseph is waiting for me. They say they can't let me go, or their enemies might hurt me.
I know Joseph and Marco are dangerous men, but being with them doesn't feel wrong. When they hold me in their arms, I feel safe, cherished. If I give myself to them, can they protect me? Or will staying close to them put me in more danger than ever?
But then her mother asks me to marry her.
I say yes.
Now this woman will be mine forever.
Maybe the prophecy really is true. I’m committing to a woman that will never love me in return.
But it was better to be her husband than allow someone else to take my place. It was better to conquer her body every night than be lonely with someone else.
