Valentina verabscheut mich ebenso sehr wie ich sie. Das hält mich aber nicht davon ab, sie zu entführen und sie für mich zu stehlen. Während der Jahre, in denen wir getrennt waren, hat Hass für sie an meinem Herzen gefressen. Das Mädchen, das ich einst geliebt habe, ist jetzt eine Frau, die glaubt, jemand anderem zu gehören. Ich strebe als berüchtigtster Drogenbaron der Westküste nach Macht und Kontrolle. Ihr offener Widerstand quält mich, und ich werde niemals müde, abwegige Bestrafungen zu ersinnen, damit sie nicht aus der Reihe tanzt.
Meine süße Gefangene mag es nicht, berührt zu werden. Sie wird es lernen. Sie hat nicht länger das Recht, sich zu weigern. Sie zuckt beim Anblick meines vernarbten Gesichts zusammen, aber die Art und Weise, wie sie wimmert und zittert, lässt in mir ein perverses Vergnügen aufkommen. Ich habe die kleine FBI-Agentin gefangen genommen, als sie versuchte, mein Drogenimperium zu Fall zu bringen, und das kann ich nicht zulassen. Meine hübsche Geisel ist etwas stur und hat einen scharfen Verstand, aber ihr kluges Gehirn ist meinem eisernen Willen nicht gewachsen.
Ich mag es nicht, berührt zu werden. Ich bin die Hacker-Nerd-Göttin des FBIs. Wenn ich mich hinter meinem Monitor verstecke, habe ich einen sicheren Abstand zu allen anderen; isoliert, mächtig. Kein Mann hat mich bisher berührt, aber als ich vom Drogenbaron Andrés Moreno entführt werde, aber ich nicht länger das Recht mich zu verweigern. Er hat eine Narbe und ist angsteinflößend, aber sein grausamer Bruder Cristian hat ihm aufgetragen, mich zu brechen. Ich versuche zu flüchten, aber ich kann seinen starken Armen und der strengen Disziplin nicht entkommen.

Unterhaltsame Geschichten, aber unangenehme Stimme
I don't like to be touched. I'm the hacker-geek-goddess of the FBI. When I'm hiding behind my screen, I'm a safe distance from everyone; isolated, powerful. No man has ever touched me, but when I'm captured by Colombian drug lord Andrés Moreno, I no longer have the right to refuse. He's scarred and scary, and his cruel brother Cristian has tasked him with breaking me. I try to fight, but I can't escape his strong arms and harsh discipline. He demands that I accept his touch, and my virgin body can't help but respond to his masterful manipulations.
I'm not a damsel in distress. Well, if I'm being honest, I'm a kick-ass FBI agent in distress. My sexy new partner Reed Miller is determined to protect me, and he insists on staying close. Too close. His allure frightens me almost as much as the sadistic man who is stalking me. I'm hunting down the most heinous criminal I've ever encountered. The man known to us only as The Mentor abducts and tortures women. And now he's set his sights on me.
Ever since we were teenagers, I've denied my desire for Sofia. Despite her father's involvement in running our cocaine empire, Caesar Hernández has carefully sheltered her from the brutal realities of our world. She's always been far too innocent and pure for me to drag her out of her charmed life and into my depravities. But Caesar chose to betray my ruthless boss, Adrián Rodríguez. He'll have to prove his loyalty once again if he doesn't want any harm to come to his beloved daughter.
Carmen Ronaldo is my enemy and my obsession. I'll conquer her and make her mine. For years, Carmen has hated me. I seduced her to learn her family's secrets, and then I used those secrets to fracture the Ronaldo cartel, taking half of their territory for myself. I made myself a king, but I've never been fully satisfied in my victory. I've never experienced regret. The emotions that rule weaker men don't affect me. Until her. I've waited far too long to claim Carmen for myself.
My father gave me to him as a bargaining chip, as though I was nothing more than flesh to be traded. I hate him for that, and I hate the man who took me: Javier Santiago, a member of the violent Latin Kings. Even though I don't want to belong to him, he is fiercely possessive of me. And when his ownership is threatened, his enemies aren't the only ones to suffer. He says my freedom is the price for my safety. I think he just wants to keep me all for himself.
My life was irrevocably changed that night; the night I was taken. I saved a man's life, but at what cost to myself? Can I convince him to save me in return? I hate him for what he's done to me. But the longer I'm trapped with him, the harder it is to cling to that hatred. He is an enigma of a man, one who is shockingly arrogant, sweetly contrite, and frighteningly aggressive by turns. And the pain in his eyes is a mirror for my own.
As the most notorious, sadistic drug lord on the West Coast, I thrive on power and control. Valentina loathes me as much as I despise her. That doesn't stop me from kidnapping her, stealing her away for myself. Over the years that have separated us, hatred has festered in my heart. The girl I once loved is all woman now, and she thinks she belongs to someone else. Her defiance tempts and torments me, and I'll never tire of devising devious punishments to keep her in line. She can't escape my cruel touch and harsh discipline. No one will take her from me. I'll kill anyone who tries.
Sex is my drug of choice. That's just the truth. There's no point fighting it. I've never met a man as dangerous for me as Clayton. The sexy FBI agent wants to save my junkie kid brother from the violent Latin Kings and save me from my self-destructive behavior. He makes me want to be better than what I am. It thrills me almost as much as it terrifies me. To keep me close, he ruthlessly exploits my weakness: lust. He grants me the sweet release that I can find only in sexual submission, and I am quickly becoming addicted to him.
My sweet captive doesn't like to be touched. She will learn. She no longer has the right to refuse. She flinches at the sight of my scarred face, but the way she whimpers and trembles makes perverse pleasure stir within me. I captured the little FBI agent while she was trying to take down my drug empire, and I can't allow that. No one will ever touch her again - especially not my cruel brother. Samantha is mine to keep and protect. Mine to play with and punish. All mine.
One hot night with a devastatingly handsome stranger. That's all it was supposed to be. So when my darkly domineering one-night stand turns out to be one of my instructors at Quantico, my life becomes far too complicated. I'm training as an FBI agent, but Jason has other forms of training in mind. Like bending me over his desk for a spanking. I try to resist him, but soon we're stealing forbidden hours of lust when no one's watching. It could cost us both our careers, but I can't help myself. He's broken, and I want to be his salvation.

He is obsessed with putting the pieces of my shattered soul back together. He wants to heal me, but I'm scared. If I'm not a slave, he won't be my Master anymore. I might be a shadow of the woman I was, but without him I would cease to exist altogether. I've found my salvation in his obsession, my freedom in his captivity. If I can make him love me, he'll never let me go.
FBI agent Dex Scott is sexy as sin and completely off-limits. After what my bastard ex-husband put me through, I'm not interested in intimacy of any kind. But the chemistry between us is undeniable, and when Dex makes it clear that he wants to help with my research in the field and in the bedroom, I can't resist. His protective instincts turn possessive as dangers from my past and present rise up to threaten me. The powerful Dom demands my submission and my love. He won't relent until he breaks down all my walls, including the ones that protect my ravaged heart.
My Master is dead. He was my whole world. He was also my protector. Without his ownership, I've become a pawn to be used by the more bloodthirsty members of the Russian Mafia. To survive, I need to outwit them. If the man who helped kill my Master doesn't find me first. She put a bullet in my chest to protect the monster she called Master. I'd thought she was a victim, but she was a deadly adversary. Now, I'll stop at nothing to get my revenge. I'll bring her to justice if I have to chase her halfway around the world.
After a lifetime of being sheltered, I decided to study abroad in St. Petersburg to push myself out of my comfort zone. Dimitri definitely fits the bill.

My lover becomes my captor. He wants all of me, even if that means pushing me to my breaking point. He won't stop until he owns my body and soul.
He wants to break me and make me his. He treats me like his plaything, but I suspect I mean more to him than idle amusement. The monster needs me. What's truly terrifying is that I'm coming to need him. He sets my body on fire, and I crave his touch. When trapped in the dark, the blacker shades of lust can be confused with love.
I can't seem to get anything right. And when you work for the FBI, mistakes can cost lives. Busting BDSM club Decadence for drug trafficking is my chance to prove myself. And no pushy Dominant is going to throw me off my game, not even sinfully sexy club owner Derek Carter.
