How far would you go to save someone you love? Would you give up your body? Your mind? Your heart?
I did and it cost me everything.
He says he owns me. And it’s true.
I’ve signed over complete control of my body and life for six months to a man I don’t know. Five years he’s been planning this. They say revenge is a dish best served cold. But my blackmailer serves it up white hot. He’s addicted to my innocence, and I’m addicted to him.
He likes to hurt me. I love to let him. He brings me to life. He sets me free. He makes my heart feel things it shouldn’t.
But he also scares me. He holds the fate of my brother’s life in his hands. A life behind bars for crimes I know he didn’t commit. My blackmailer can’t give up his revenge on my family, and I can’t be with him if he doesn’t. But I’m nothing more than a butterfly caught in his net. Do I really have a choice?
She was a young thing, a child really, full of hope and light, who’s only friends were the shadows on the walls. Others would have found the darkness that she traversed lacking in shadows, but she exuded an unearthly radiance, lighting the world with every step and bringing life to the shadows that lived only in the twilight between worlds. It was here that her friends came out to play and fed her soul with their love of her joy and the light she bore. For without light, there could be no shadows.
He, a man living in the light, found nothing in the darkness, though his eyes scoured it constantly for a kindred spirit. Always, he searched the void for someone to cling to, some kind of anchor for his soul. For he walked in the light only with help of a mask to hide behind. Under it hid an ethereal animal, primal in its needs and desires, which could not stand the light of day. If only there was one who could give him light without destroying the darkness that filled him so that he could finally be free.
This is the beginning of Mr. Sheffield and Maggie’s love story. It isn’t simple. It isn’t clean. Life’s not simple or clean, and a truly epic love story shouldn’t be either. Epic love must be forged in the fires of heartbreak, pain, and fear because love is no different than steel, and only the fire of a wounded soul can burn away the impurities.
Torn will pull you in with the steamy scenes of young Maggie learning about the dark world of BDSM by revealing the dark and primal man that lay behind Mr. Sheffield’s masks. Lust and passion abound in their pursuits of physical love, but always, there is a shadow hanging over them as she unravels Mr. Sheffield’s past.
But it is not the physical love that will force you to keep turning the pages. Other stories may bring you romance and candles, but this is a story with claws and teeth. It is raw. It is passion. It is real.
If you’re looking for a story that will warm your heart and make you see the good in the world, look elsewhere. This is about the darkness that lies behind the mask that we all wear. It is about the animal inside each of us. And yet, you’ll wish that you were the one lying underneath Mr. Sheffield as the mask comes off and the cuffs wrap around your wrists and ankles. You’ll know that pain will follow, but in the end, you know that passion and pleasure will never fail to fill your body, mind, and soul…

Avery thought she was finally escaping. She thought the frightening yet alluring shifter who shattered her chains was her savior. Avery didn’t know she was just exchanging one cage for another.
Her scent overwhelmed me. For a split second I forgot about my mission. The girl opened her crystal blue eyes and a shock blew through my system. My instincts roared to life.
A slow pulse of arousal throbbed between my legs. It had to be the adrenaline. This shifter carried a gun, had killed his way through my clan, was probably going to kill me. It was crazy. I had no idea why I was reacting this way.
All I knew was, I wanted him.

Tony Black is a lonely thirtysomething, lost in the grey wasteland of modern Britain. His lust for life gone, he sleepwalks to and from work each day, barely even able to conjur a daydream on the journey. Dianne Doyle is an insatiable fortysomething in a playground of corruption, with each game becoming increasingly bizarre. Some would say that she is simply a businesswoman trying to make a success out of her inheritance, but those who know her best know that her interest in profit margins ran out a long time ago. Her pampered, flawless appearance belies a dark history of perversion and violence … and the worst is yet to come for Tony Black: Tanner’s Department Store’s newest employee, and Dianne Doyle’s chosen playmate for her most enigmatic and dangerous game yet. This Christmas, the mundane will be a warm, distant memory for Black, as he finds himself pinned down by Doyle’s trident of blackmail, sex and violence.

It will keep you guessing as Black negotiates his way through the darkest corners of this once-splendid shipbuilding town, guided by strange characters and the distant voice of his own morality, right up until the shocking climax at the Christmas party.

There are a million reasons why I should stay away from Vincent Cesare.
This was supposed to be temporary. I was supposed to deal for his illegal card games and get some quick cash. That was it. I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.
Little by little, I see the monster grinning at me through the cracks in his pretty suit. He won't tell me what he does, and I'm not sure I want to know. The darkness in his eyes terrifies me.
