The first awareness that someone had crawled in bed with me came when she whispered in my ear, “Are you awake?” and squeezed my di*k.
Fighting the fog of being woken from a dead sleep, I slowly responded, “I am now…barely.”
As she snuggled in closer and the heat from her bare skin transferred to mine, I realized she was as naked as me. A naked stranger in my bed?
Whispering, “You don’t want to know,” she seemed to anticipate my question. Stroking me, she added, “I need to get you harder.”
Lying there, as if in a trance, still half-asleep, totally enjoying whoever she was, doing what she was doing, a little voice gnawed at me. Who is she? How did she get in? What does she want? Thinking I probably knew what she wanted, I wondered, Why me? Is she pretty? Does it matter?
“How did you get in here?” I blurted.
George is my roommate.
“Why aren’t you with him?”
“He passed out.”
Even though all she’d done was whisper, her voice lent a feeling of familiarity. “Do I know you?”
In a barely audible whisper, she said, “You can touch me, too,” as she took my hand and placed it on her breast. It was nice sized, firm but soft. As if my hand had a mind of its own, it kneaded it and flicked her hardened nip.
“You like?” came her soft inquiry.
“Very much.” I wanted to see it. I wanted to see her. “Can I turn the light on?”
“No.” she snapped.
Again, whoever she was, her voice was vaguely familiar. What if I turn it on anyway?”
That killed that idea. “You never answered me, do I know you?”
She put a finger to my lips. “You talk too much,”
On her 21st birthday she’s taken. Collected by a rich family as an unpaid debt. Her body sold. Her mind his.
For 21 weeks she carried a burden no girl should ever have to carry. Now she loses her freedom to a man born to destroy her.
His name: Angel DeLuca. His mission: To break her in 21 days before she sees through his lies. But she won’t give up without a fight.
It takes only 21 minutes for their lives to be forever entwined.
21 seconds to spill. Time is running out.
Secrets ruin them … but not all truths are worth the price.

He wants something else: me, for one year.

365 days and nights doing everything he wants…except that.

“I’m going to make you a promise,” his eyes challenge mine. “Before our time is up, you’ll beg me for it.”

Some secrets are meant to stay hidden …
Secrets could kill you. My husband is the prime example.
I’m a trophy wife. Someone’s prized possession, just there to be pretty. My dreams were pushed aside for his. Until one fateful night, one chance encounter, all his dirty secrets were exposed.
And then my supposed husband is killed.
I should be sad, but all I feel is anger. My husband is a lying, cheating bastard. And if that isn’t bad enough, I’m now the prime suspect for his murder.
Only his brother believes I'm innocent, and in his support, I find relief. However, I will find the real killer and bring him to justice ... before he tries to end my life too.
F**k me once, I'll f**k you twice … then I'll bury you.
No prison can keep me from seeking revenge. Especially when it comes to her.
She, the woman who put me in jail.
I swore that I’d come for her, to claim what belongs to me: Her life.
I’m not a good man. On the contrary, I love to be bad. It’s in my veins. Just like it’s in my veins to ruin her.
She’s an actress, pretending to be a saint, but we both know that isn’t true. One way or another, she’ll pay for what she did.
I will hunt for her. Make her fear me. Make her body mine.
Bad deeds never go unpunished … And I always go out with a bang.
