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?
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.

She flinches at the sight of my scarred face, but the way she whimpers and trembles makes perverse pleasure stir within me. I captured the little FBI agent while she was trying to take down my drug empire, and I can't allow that.
My pretty hostage possesses a stubborn streak and sharp mind, but her clever brain is no match for my iron will. I'll stop at nothing to claim her virgin body, no matter how many deviant punishments I have to devise for her.
No one will ever touch her again--especially not my cruel brother.
Samantha is mine to keep and protect. Mine to play with and punish. All mine.
We wanted forever with Kit Lancaster. Instead of getting her between us, she left town, bolted like a horse from a barn on fire. A year later, she's back and she's going to be ours. To have, to hold and to f-ing keep. Forever.
What could get in the way? Oh yeah, a little thing called murder.
Safe, no cheating and a guaranteed HEA.
I have cheated.
I have given my body and my life to the man who destroyed my family and left me for dead.
I have killed, I have sinned, and worst of all, I have enjoyed the misery of others.
I have licked the salty tears of a father mourning his firstborn son, and nothing has ever tasted so sweet.
I have died, and I have been resurrected, a phoenix from the ashes.
I know I’m going to hell. I’ll burn in the fiery pits alongside Dornan and his sons for the things I’ve done, and for the things I’m about to do.
But I don’t care. It will be worth every lick of the devil's flames on my guilty flesh to destroy Dornan Ross.
One down. Six to go.
Now, my body may be scarred, but I’m stronger than ever. With my clever little pet by my side, I’m capable of anything. Samantha has finally located my lost sister, Valentina. The cruel men who have held her captive for over a decade will suffer at my hands before I finally let them die.
Valentina is closely guarded by a brutal drug lord, and he won’t let his possession go so easily. I want to leave Samantha behind, to keep her locked away somewhere safe while I dispose of my enemies. But my fierce pet refuses to be caged, and I know that I can’t do this without her.
My family is within my grasp, but rescuing Valentina might cost the life of the woman I love.
Note: This novella should be read after Sweet Captivity.
Widower, single-dad, Dr. Ryan Montgomery is in over his head. It's been four years since his wife's death and his former mother-in-law refuses to let him move on. When he finally starts dating, an accident makes him realize that dating a cop could put him right back in a world of grief and loss--a place he barely survived the first time around.
Now, two people who are used to saving others are forced to save themselves: one from a lonely future and one from a broken past.
