Description from the publisher:
She doesn’t know what she wants, but she knows the things she needs. Companionship. Adventure. Fear. She needs to feel alive.
Instead she finds an adventure that she can’t turn away from, even though her instincts warn her of the terrible things to come…
This was a hot, steamy, short read. Though a short read, it did not feel rushed. The plot and characters are well-developed. I did feel that there was a missing prologue regarding Anjasa, or perhaps a prequel that I haven’t yet found. J.E. and M have an extensive list of stories listed on their website at http://jmkeep.com/category/books/. I intend to read more from this talented couple.
J.E. & M. Keep love to combine fantasy, scifi, horror, romance and mystery into exciting and titillating novels.
They are long term, loving partners in a very happy relationship and because of this, they love to torture their characters. Dark romance touches all of their stories in one way or another, from elicit trysts to forbidden love.
Some of their work contains dubious consent and erotic pain, so it's not for the faint of heart. Their stories are often called twisted and arousing -- at the same time.
All work is 18+, trigger warnings available on the second page of every book. If you want to hear about new releases, sign up for the newsletter!
Loren shook his head, setting that thick head of golden brown hair to swaying gently. “No. I’m afraid I just...” he sighed softly. “I lost my inheritance.” He paused then added, “In a competition I mean, not like... down a drain.”
“You bet your inheritance?” She whistled lowly as she looked over his body. “You must be huge,” she paused a beat, “ly confident.”
That succeeded in bringing another blush to his cheeks, but he poured her up more of the familiarly expensive wine and shook his head. “Not... no, not exactly,” he said. “My father, he ah,” he cleared his throat. “He disapproved of my habits and set me against a cousin in a competition over who would retain his inheritance.” He looked down in his drink glumly. “I went drinking the night before.”
She had to suppress her laughter, and she licked over her lips. “Well, we all get cock...y from time to time. So who’s this cousin and how’d he even get chosen for the possibility, huh?”
