I want real fear. Real submission.

She’s giving me all that, and taking so much more.

I’m the last son. The one who doesn’t matter. I was never meant to inherit my family’s wealth, but my brother’s gutless betrayal left me as the only one still holding a fortune.

Now, with money to my name and the looks to match, women see me. They want me.

But they don’t know me.

I savor a very specific kind of leisure pursuit. I buy women to lock them up and make them submit to my will.

But this time, I want the real thing. Real fear, real submission. Someone special, who doesn’t play a role.

Someone like her.

A luscious lamb, curves all in the right places, and eyes so deep, I’ve lost myself in them before we even exchanged a single word.

She doesn’t know what’s coming. She doesn’t know that she’s going to be mine, my captive, my submissive, my possession. For as long as I please.

But something is wrong with her. She’s twisted, with a soul just as broken as mine.

She’s not playing by the rules, and that makes me want her that much more.

MY REVIEW

Loran came from wealth. He had the world virtually at his fingertips. However, the one thing he wanted, needed and desired was a change. Tired of paying for the pleasure of a ‘victim’, he decided to catch one of his very own. Ruby was a high-class escort, paid well to satisfy the dark urges of her agency’s wealthy clientele. Her latest client wanted to stage an abduction and listed out the rules she was to follow. When Loran grabbed her up, it was a case of not only mistaken identity, but eventually of finding one’s other half.

This tale does get a bit dark, at least in theory. It followed a pretty typical erotica script with the added bonus of a man who was anything but a hero. The female lead wasn’t much of a heroine either. But somehow these two fit. As the blurb states, "She’s twisted, with a soul just as broken as mine." I find that statement to be pretty accurate. Violent Desires was written well and I was drawn into this tale of captivity and lust right from the start. As my first try by this author, I have to admit to being very interested in what else she comes up with.
