Kidnapped. Taken to a private island.
I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely.
Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful – a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.
My captor is an enigma. I don’t know who he is or why he took me. There is a darkness inside him – a darkness that scares me even as it draws me in.
My name is Nora Leston, and this is my story.
This is NOT a traditional romance. It contains disturbing subject matter, including themes of questionable consent and Stockholm Syndrome, as well as graphic sexual content. This is a work of fiction intended for a mature, 18+ audience only. The author neither endorses nor condones this type of behavior.
Thought provoking, captivating, interesting read! It was well worth every word I read. I cannot stop thinking about this book, and the effects it had throughout the book: the fast pace had me wanting to know more, the daring trails pushing the limits with what is right or wrong, the ability to fall for a character when she doesn’t open up all the time. I was longing for Beth the whole way through the book. I wanted Beth to be Nora’s best friend. To help mold her, to protect her, and boy did she do that and more.
Nora, she is a well developed character. Her thoughts, and actions was all of those what I would expect would happen to anyone. She tried hard to escape, she tried hard to be herself, when everything else seemed so distant.
I loved getting to know who Julian was, his character, his thought process, his actions.. he was a complex character with wounds, and needed healing.
This book was so much more than just an escape from reality, it was an adventure. Can’t wait to find out where book 2 goes!
