I shouldn't have been there that night. I shouldn't have seen that man die--or the face of his killer. Every part of me wanted to run and hide, to escape and forget what I saw.
But then he caught me. He stole me and pushed me into his world. He said if I listened to him, he could give me what I wanted. . .
He forgot to mention that freedom comes with a price. I'm going to be auctioned off and there's nothing I can do to change that.
He wants me to believe that he isn't the bad guy. But I know better. Except... his hard jaw and full lips are hard to ignore, his voice makes my heart flutter, and his hands—his hands are purely toxic, unfurling my body with one touch.
He's a monster, and monsters lie. They lurk in the dark and rain hell on your soul.
I never thought that loving one was possible. . .
Until I met him.
All I wanted was to be left alone, to be free from the past that tried to consume me.
Until I found her beaten and left for dead in my woods.
I never expected to see a young girl curled up in the brush, covered in dirt and bruises. She was so innocent and helpless.
So I brought her home, I helped her, I took care of her. . .
I saved her.
When the dirt came off I saw nothing but woman. Her figure was full and needy, her lush lips were tempting and ready to taste my c**k.
Everything about her made me want her for myself.
And when she told me she was a virgin, that was enough to seal her fate.
I knew what she wanted and I was ready to give it to her.
But the world was looking for this lost girl, she had a family that wanted her back.
Even if I had the soul to do what was right, my heart wouldn't let me. She became mine the moment I cradled her in my arms.
And I didn't plan on that ever changing.
Why should I let go of something that was mine?
Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body—and killed him.
After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team—and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn’t been exposed—it’s time to look into Dr. Abner’s past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close—though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that she’s dealing with either a madman—or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims.
I expected the Russian Mafia to have some secrets on their luxury yacht when I stole it.
I didn't expect a beautiful, wilted angel, held captive in the walls of a sadistic red room.
The men I'm running from were going to ruin her. Instead, I painted the room with their blood.
I saved her, but there's something about her that drives me wild and makes me want to possess her. She pushes my buttons, and when her amber eyes burn into mine, I don't resist my urges.
This foolish girl doesn’t know what she’s in for.
Or maybe she does, and she just likes playing with fire.
It’s going to get her burned, if she isn’t careful, but the way she calls me Daddy is all the convincing I need.
I will not let her go.
