The Scotch King by Penelope Sky

When she first came into my captivity, I found her unremarkable. But now, I thought she was exceptional.

Joseph Ingram made the mistake of stealing from me—four million dollars. He took my intelligence without paying for it. And thought he could get away with it.

Think again.

Now I’ll take something from him—something irreplaceable.

His sister.


But even when Joseph doubles the amount of money he owes me, I don’t give her up.

Nope. I have an image to maintain.

So I keep her.

And I’m not giving her up.

Crewe was delicious! Let me just get that out there before anything else about this book. He was freaking yummy!! Penelope Sky did me a huge favor with this character. I find that usually, when an author calls their story a dark captive story, that they will still soft sell it. Not this author. When his captive acted up, he was quick to put her in her place... until he fell for her.
After catching her hand as she went to slap him, Crewe gave her a backhand across the face... "If you don't want me to slap you, don't slap me. If you don't want me to hurt you, do as I say."
London was the worst kind of captive. She talked back, she acted up, and she felt entitled. I couldn't stand her, but I lived for every time that Crewe snuffed out her entitlement or reminded her of her situation. I loved when one of her many questions went unanswered. I loved when he degraded her, demeaned her, humiliated her, and made her feel less than. Crewe is the only reason this book gets three stars and if I do continue to with this series, it would be just to see more of him.
