Stealing Beauty

Valentina loathes me as much as I despise her. That doesn’t stop me from kidnapping her, stealing her away for myself.


She was brought into my home when we were teenagers, her virgin body sold to my father to pay a debt. She was meant to be his plaything, but I claimed her innocence for myself.


Now, ten years have separated us, and hatred has festered in my heart. The girl I once loved is a stunning woman, and she thinks she belongs to someone else.


As the most notorious, sadistic drug lord on the west coast, I thrive on power and control. Her defiance tempts and torments me, and I’ll never tire of devising devious punishments to keep her in line. She can’t escape my cruel touch and harsh discipline.


No one will take her from me. I’ll kill anyone who tries.


Valentina was always meant to be mine. Nothing will stop me from possessing her, body and soul.


Note: This book can be read as a standalone dark romance novel, and it now includes Stolen Innocence, the prequel to Valentina and Adrián's story. The suggested reading order for the Captive Series is as follows:

Sweet Captivity

Claiming My Sweet Captive

Stealing Beauty

Captive Ever After

Pretty Hostage

Kingpin’s Property

About the author

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.


Julia loves connecting with readers! Please feel free to contact her on Facebook and Instagram. You can find out more about Julia's current and future projects at julia-sykes.com.
