Candy Parker hasn't had an easy life. Being a young single mother to a special needs child is always as hard as it it rewarding. Her life is devoted to Dakota with no room for anything else. Especially a fireman who quietly pursues her. After a tragic accident, Candy is forced to reluctantly lean on Gary for support.

This is my confession: While the premise for this book had potential to be an endearing Christmas romance, in my opinion- it failed. Here are some reasons why: Gary, the fireman, was a great character. Supportive, patient, the rock that you would expect him to be. He was more or less the highlight of the book. Candy on the other hand...I didn't like her at all. She was rude, judgmental, snarky and quite frankly...a bitch. More or less right up until the final chapter where just a piece of redemption shines through. As far as 'romance' goes, its more or less non existent.

An unconventional and dark coupling that will leave you breathless and wanting to stay locked up forever.

Gavin is a sadistic bastard wanting that one woman who will complete and satisfy his inner monster. Buying an innocent woman thats been kidnapped and sold to the highest bidder by flesh peddlers would cement that fact. Or would it make him a dark savior.

Ruby is a fiery masochist with dark passions that she doesn't understand. A young woman setting out on her own to escape an unsavory homelife to better herself. She finds herself in the clutches of sex trafficers that put her to auction.
Jenika Snow will bring you on an dark erotic BDSM journey as only she can. Jason P. Hilton in my personal opinion should narate life in general. His voice is hypnotic. When added to the lush wording, its magic.

This is not your grandmas erotica...unless of course she loves her pearls.
