The Villain’s Captive, book 1 is on sale for 99cents: 

The day Elijah took me, he vowed to tame me.
I tried to fight him. Tried to survive without losing my heart.
But in the end, he did what he said he’d do… tame me.

He claimed me so unapologetically, and I surrendered willingly.
Together we found our place within the darkness.
We succumbed to wicked desires and tainted intentions.

And with every kiss, every touch, I allowed myself to fall deeper. Drowning within the seduction of a killer’s obsession.

I was reckless. Blinded by the promises of a man who wanted nothing but me.
I should have known better. Guarded my heart more fiercely.
After all—nothing good can come from falling for the villain.

Putting one foot in front of the other, I took a step that brought our bodies a breath apart, my neck craned back so I could look him in the eye. “Maybe I want affirmation that the man I share a bed with sees me as more than just a debt. Maybe I want to know that the man I allow to fuck me every goddamn night isn’t just using me as a pastime while we’re stuck on this yacht.”

The expression on his face turned to stone, and as he moved forward, I had no choice but to step back. “You allow me to fuck you?”

“You know what I—”

“Is that what you’ve been doing every time I slipped my cock into your cunt? You allowed me to fuck you?”

My heart started to beat incredibly fast. “That’s not what I meant.” 

“You spread those thighs of yours, your pussy dripping while you pant for me to fuck you—yet now you say you allow me to be inside you?”


“There’s a difference between allowing something and wanting it, Charlotte.” My back hit the wall, and he cocooned me. “A huge motherfucking difference.”

“I know that.”

“No. I don’t think you do.” He leaned his head to the side as he dragged a finger down my cheek, his predator gaze studying me as if he couldn’t decide where to start tearing me apart. “Should I show you? Teach you the difference?”

“I didn’t mean it like that, and you know it.” 

His fingers bit into my jaw as he forced my head to the side, causing me to flinch as he leaned in, lips touching my ear. “I think I should show you the difference by fucking you as my captive rather than my guest.”

“Elijah—” His arms roped around my waist and lifted me over his shoulder. “Elijah, what are you doing?”

“Exactly what I said. I’m going to show you how a psychopath fucks his captive.”

He carried me into my room, slamming the door closed behind us with his foot. 

“Elijah, don’t.”

“Now would be a good time for you to close that mouth of yours.” He dropped me on the bed, but before I had a chance to move, his fingers tore through his shirt, buttons bouncing on the floor around us. “Unless you want to taste my cock on your tongue.”
