Kidnapped. Tortured. Corrupted.

He stole me away in the middle of the night.

A windowless cell with a floor of stone became my new home.

He took, and he took until I had nothing left to entertain him with.
And then I was abandoned and left to die, just like all the other girls.

He has no idea I’m alive.
He doesn’t know he woke the devil inside me.

When I find him, nothing in the world will be strong enough to save his tar black soul.

18+ Reader discretion is highly advised.
Complete standalone novella. No cliffhanger. Loosely connected to DEVILS WITH HALOS.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

Two things you should know before starting this book:

1) This is a quick read. Novella length, with a tight focus on the events between the protagonist and antagonist.

2) THIS IS NOT A ROMANCE! This is a Dark Erotic Thriller. Take the author’s warning seriously.

This was my very first book by this author and I’m happy to say I’ve found another author to add to my watch list. There is nothing fluffy in this book. Just a quick, unvarnished tale of one woman’s survival and revenge on a madman. And, oh boy, is J. a madman.

J. likes his toys. He is meticulous in picking his women. He plans, plots, stalks until everything is perfect and the time is right. And then he takes what he wants. Harper is to be his last, his perfect toy. Keeping her captive in the basement of a remote cabin, he plans to enjoy her for as long as he can. But you know what they say of the best-laid plans…

I loved Harper and how strong she was throughout. She was the perfect match for J., whose slowly revealed background will make your jaw drop and skin crawl. I really would have loved for this to be novel length so there would have been time to explore them more individually and dig deeper into the psychological aspects of what was happening.

The ending, while satisfying, did feel abrupt and had me wondering if this was it or if we would get more in Devils With Halos. Which I have every intention of reading regardless, btw. The snippets about “Malignant” within this book have me beyond excited to see what is to come.

A brand new sizzling standalone contemporary romance by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It was supposed to just be a quick trip to Manhattan.

My best friend was heartbroken. She needed support, and I needed inspiration.

I hoped to love the city. Bustling. Crazy. Inspiring New York.

But I ended up at the airport, heading home in the same condition that I arrived.

In a rut.

Add to all that, missing my flight and losing my laptop—the laptop, where the Best Love Story Ever sat on my hard drive.

Enter Noah Steele. Eerily familiar. Movie star. Heartthrob. Sultry romeo with bedroom eyes.

(But we’re not going there.)

He missed his flight too.

Noah is so smoldering, lip-bitingly hot, he’s not taken seriously as an actor, and is struggling to launch his career in New York.

He’s only ever had superficial girlfriends, so he’s having trouble showing true passion in his acting—the same challenge I’m having with this book.

When we met, we didn’t know that our connection would bring us the change we’d been craving.

That we’d be the very thing the other needed and didn’t know.

Each other’s muse.

What do you get when you throw three Bergers in a Box? More sexy fun than you can shake a glitter bomb at!

The Bigger Badder Berger Box Set contains three full-length sexy romantic comedies and three all-new bonus epilogues guaranteed to make tears run down your leg!

Mister McHottie, a Billionaire Boss / Brothers’ Best Friend / Enemies to Lovers Romantic Comedy: Ten years ago, Chase Jett stole my pride, my cherry, and my future. Now he’s my boss. But this jilted lover is done playing games. I want one thing and one thing only: revenge.

The Pilot and the Puck-Up, a Hockey / One Night Stand / Virgin Romantic Comedy: I’m the biggest, baddest, mother pucking-est machine to ever own the ice. I shoot. I score. In and out of the rink. I don’t come early, but I come often, if you know what I mean. And I always leave the ladies wanting more. Until that chick last night. I should cut my losses, lick my wounds, and walk away. But Zeus Berger doesn’t walk away from anything. Especially when she’s the only woman in the world who might be able to handle me.

Beauty and the Beefcake, a Hockey / Roommates / Opposites Attract Romantic Comedy: There are two kinds of women in the world – those I can bang, and those I can’t. My teammate’s sister? She’s a can’t.

But she makes me feel like something more than a dumb puckhead with a big Zamboni pony. And it’s getting harder to remember why I need to keep my hands to myself.

The Bigger Badder Berger Box Set features three sexy standalone romantic comedies with no cheating or cliffhangers. They’re so sexy and funny, they’re illegal in at least two made-up countries. You’ll never look at bratwurst, coconuts, or hockey pucks the same again.

She’s his superior officer, he’s just a lowly recruit…
Does love conquer rank?

When bear shifter Eric joins the newly formed Alpha Squad, a joint human/shifter taskforce, he fears it’s all just a waste of time. It’s all the work of a politician trying to make a name for himself; Eric is sure of it. That is until he meets his training officer; Major Janine Williams…

The squad may just be a farce, but her presence alone is enough to keep him on base and on task. For her, he’ll give the squad a real shot. If only the feeling was mutual…

Janine did not want to be the one to lead Alpha Squad; neither did any of her male colleagues. When the on-base general orders her to let the squad fail during boot camp training itself, her worst fears are confirmed.

Worse still, she can’t stop thinking about one of her recruits. Dating someone under her command is the last thing she needs.

Alpha Squad’s future hangs in the balance; as does Janine’s hard-fought military career. Boot camp has only just begun…

Join Alpha Squad in this steamy paranormal romance you won’t want to put down. If you like Alpha City by Bryce Evans or Bear Patrol by Scarlett Grove, then you will love the Alpha Squad Series by Lorelei Moone!
