Synopsis


"It's been a year since Kayla Sutton walked away from Gage Channing, the man who blackmailed her into sexual slavery. Now he's back, and so is Ian Kaplan, Kayla's one-time lover from her college days. Both men want her, but only one holds the power to make her submit—to her own dark desires and to the truth she still denies, even to herself. But Gage's jealousy is his worst enemy, and when he thinks Kayla has chosen Ian, he sets in motion a drastic plan to claim what's his. Only Kayla never expects him to infiltrate her heart so effortlessly; and she never dreamed there would come a day when he wouldn't want her—when the mere sight of her turns him away in disgust. He believes she’s committed the ultimate sin, but will she use his mistake to finally escape the cage of his obsession? Or will she do whatever it takes to make him see he can entrust his heart to her . . . just as she's already lost the core of her being to him?"


Meet the Author


Gemma James (a pseudonym for Christina Jean Michaels) loves to explore the darker side of sex in her fiction. She's morbidly curious about anything dark and edgy and enjoys exploring the deviant side of human nature. Her stories have been described as being "not for the faint of heart." She lives with her husband and their four children--three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone's attention.

Excerpt


My breath grew shallow, from arousal, from fear. Gage was good at that—eliciting strong emotions that contrasted so sharply, they knocked a person on their ass in total confusion. I shouldn’t want him. I should scream at him to get the hell out of my house and never come back. I should get a freaking restraining order. As if the turmoil inside me didn’t exist, I set our omelets on the table and calmly took a seat across from him. “What did you mean by boundaries?” I stabbed a bite and shoved it in my mouth. Raising my eyes to his turned out to be a mistake. His hypnotic stare paralyzed me; I couldn’t look away if my life depended on it. I fell into the ocean of his gaze and almost missed the satisfied quirk of his lips. Almost. “You know by now that a relationship with me won’t be your standard variety. You’ll have rules that govern your behavior.” “My behavior?” “Yes. I expect you to obey me.” He set his fork down and winced. “But last year I was cruel to you and that’s not how I normally treat a woman. Not even when they beg me to hurt them beyond what I’m comfortable with.” “Then why?” I choked out. Everything he’d done hit me square in the chest, and his admission that he’d been exceptionally cruel hurt more than it should. “I wanted to destroy what was his.” He lowered his head with a frown. At least he had the grace to look ashamed. “Congratulations.” I let my fork drop, satisfied with the clatter it made. “You succeeded.” “No, I didn’t. Your strength is both my frustration and my undoing. There’s nothing more irritating or sexier on a woman.” He took a bite, and his gaze veered up to mine. “And to clarify on what I mean by boundaries, we’ll set limits this time. You’ll have a safe word.” “You’re talking as if we’re going to be together.” “I’m not leaving here without you, Kayla.”

Excerpt – Shared specifically for the Scavenger Hunt and cannot be found anywhere but participating blogs:
"Zaira!" Arik yelled, standing outside Quinn's _______ in Conifer. Thank the Gods Quinn wasn't here to see the state of her property. The land was once again battle scarred. But the state of the royal sibling's home was in ruins. But the property was the least of Arik's problems. Buildings could be rebuilt. Lands could be _________.
Broken hearts weren't so easily mended.
"Arik Morgaine! Why do you ______ me again? Do you fancy me your beck and call girl? You risk much by coming here. Morgana will note your absence."
"Quinn thinks I've ________ her. The pain in her eyes…. I—I can't do this."
"Arik Morgaine, it is too late to turn the tide now. The lot is cast. You must stay the course."
"What if she can't _______ me? What if—?"
"Stand and be the man you are." Zaira crossed her arms over her chest, her opal eyes narrowed as she looked down at him. "Would you rather the Princess enter the Fading Times? For that is the alternative.”
Arik forced himself to his feet sans his ______ swagger.  "Call the quest completed," Arik implored. "Let me take her home to the Magykal Realm."
"You know that is impossible. Once the quest is set only _______ lifts its prohibitions."
"I know who carries the __________ Valknut," he said, playing his one trump card.
"Do you now?" Zaira lifted her perfect white-blonde brows.
"Aibrenne." Arik ______ his chin and pinioned Zaira with a _________ stare. "And what's more, I think you've known all along, haven't you?"
"I will not deny your assertion." Zaira's voice was cool and unaffected as if they discussed the color of the sky. "Admittedly, I gambled. One that ______ to return the bargained for rewards.
Arik ground his teeth together. "Why does it seem like I'm the only one who cares about what's at _____? Screw this! I'm taking Quinn out of there, and I'll ______ it out myself."
"Arik Morgaine! You will do no such thing. Either you stay and follow the Princess into the Marbh Chamber, or you watch her die. Choose now!"
Arik clawed both hands through his hair. "You don't understand," Arik said, his voice a regretful whisper. "This is killing me. I—I can't be _______ her."
Zaira blinked rapidly as if she warred with some decision. "I told you both your _______ would not be an easy one. I will do what I can.
Arik leaned his head back and howled, letting out his rage, frustration and fear. His dark emotions manifested into _________ clouds and loud claps of thunder.
Zaira lifted her eyes heavenward as she ______ for his fit to pass. She shook her head in a chiding manner. Her ass-long braid shimmied with her ire much the way a dog's tail ________ when agitated. "It is about faith, Arik Morgaine."
"Fine, Emissary, I'll operate on faith." Arik unsheathed Magyk Slayer and planted it in the ground between himself and Zaira. "But make no _______," Arik said and glared down at her. "I swear to the Gods above and all we hold precious, if Quinn doesn't survive this, I will use the Magyk of Making to make the _______ of the Dubh War look like a stroll through a field of daisies on a summer day. Are we clear?"
With that, Arik shifted away.
