Genre: Dark Mafia Romance
“Who are you?” I ask, my eyes still shut. This is no ordinary monster.
“I am Nolan Kilpatrick. Underboss to the Kilpatrick crime family. Chief Financial Officer of Kilpatrick Inc. Sergey Barinov’s most fierce enemy. Your captor. That is who I am.”
For a second, I stop breathing. I just stop fucking breathing. It’s not that my lungs don’t work, or that my brain won’t move, it’s more of an existential crisis; like a meat hook has lowered around my soul and then ripped it out of my body.
The fear is paralyzing.
Then, as it all sinks in, that dreadful numbness is replaced by a raw burst of suffering.
If I thought the pain in my throbbing head was bad, it’s nothing compared to the rupture of pure horror in my heart.
That’s when my eyes finally flick back open. And when I turn to face my captor, I see that same chest pounding stranger that subdued me in Manuel’s office.
Even in the soft light of this bedroom, a darkness shades his handsome features. Those cold grey eyes smolder like ashy embers over striking cheekbones. His thick red lips are shut tight.
Even through the fine material of his smoky grey suit I can sense the power of his body.
This man is pure beast. A brutally beautiful monster.
And he’s captured me.
