Nadia Bessonova’s career-criminal father has deadly enemies – and to save him, his devoted daughter is willing to strike a deal with the devil. She will surrender completely, body and spirit, to the dangerous Dominic Luder, and submit to his every whim.
Dominic, haunted by inner demons and hiding away in his dark, secluded manor, is mesmerized by his sensuous prisoner who inflames his bestial lust. But Nadia is no mere plaything. At once fearful, willing, and wildly passionate, she brings his most breathtaking erotic fantasies to life – and thaws his cold, wounded heart.
Nadia never dreamed she’d become a slave to her own desires in a savage game of seduction and revenge. And now that Dominic has tasted ecstasy, will this jealous, magnificent beast be able to relinquish his prize?

I have read plenty of books this year but none have got me this excited like this book has. Cathy Yardley I now declare the queen of erotic romantic tales.
Nadia has done plenty to help out her family but she never expect the trouble would come knocking on their door one night.
Dominic is a force to be reckoned. He comes to reclaim his most prized possession from Nadia's father. The greedy criminal of a father robbed Dominic's treasure and he tries to make a deal with him.
Nadia throws herself to the wolves. She offers herself to Dominic in exchange for her father. Only her sister Jelena is worried for Nadia's safety. She will do whatever it takes to get her sister out of Dominic's clutch.
Dominic did not imagine that he will meet someone like Nadia. There is something about Nadia that draws him in. His touches drive Nadia wild with passion and need. Even despite Nadia being frightened by Dominic she cannot help but wanting to be enslaved by him.
Meanwhile Jelena seeks to find allies to help bring down Dominic so she can get her beloved sister back. Jelena has no clue that Nadia no longer fears for her life and wants to remain at Dominic's side.
Nadia has never felt this way about any man. Sure he is flawed but what man is perfect? Sure, Dominic's life will always be surrounded by danger but none of that matters to Nadia. She knows but cannot help but love the beast of a man who's mere touches have craving for more.
Dominic's past comes back to his life and with a vengeance. This is one bitch that will not take no for an answer.
Will this bitch from his past finally get her revenge and kill her target--Dominic?
Or will Nadia pay the ultimate price for this bitch's demented obsession?

About the author:
I’m compulsive by nature. When I like something, I tend to love it. I devour books like they were coated in dark chocolate. If I love a story, I will do whatever I can to stay in that world and find out what happens next, until I reach the last word on the last page. If that means propping up the book during dinner or while washing dishes; sneaking pages as a treat during the work day or while my son’s distracted by one of his many blinking, gyrating and beeping toys; or worst of all, sacrificing my few hours of sleep by staying up till the wee hours of the morning, just to finish the book… well, I do it. I can’t help myself.
