The Island

Run for the money. It’s part of the show. If he catches up, he won’t let go.

I’m in trouble—the kind that comes from a mobster and my irresponsible father. He killed himself and left me and my sisters holding the bag. Dmitri Ivanov wants half a million within two weeks, or he’s going to force us into the sex trade and keep my sweet little sister for himself. I’m desperate, so when I see the twisted reality TV show, “The Island,” I decide to compete. It’s only one weekend, and if the hunters don’t catch me, I get a million dollars. If they do, I still get paid—and extra for being a virgin. I just have to avoid getting trapped.

But when I meet Spencer, maybe I don’t mind him catching and claiming me…

My brother tricks me into coming with him for a weekend of hunting. I’m not into the outdoors and have never hunted an animal before. When I find out we’re supposed to hunt women instead, I’m ready to walk out. Until Anya walks in. One look at her, and I know she’s mine. I can’t fight the primal, possessive need to catch and claim her. There’s just one problem.

If I have her for the weekend, how will I ever let her go?

This is a contemporary romance with suspense and dark themes. While consensual, certain fantasy elements acted out between Spencer and Anya can be triggering to sensitive readers.

Search Terms: billionaire, alpha male, older man, new adult, steamy, dark themes, mafia, action romance, romantic suspense
