Includes all three novellas in the DEVIL’S KISS TRILOGY:
“Who am I, Kayla?”
I met his gaze—maniacal eyes possessing me—and shuddered. My heart feared him, but the gate of my sexual need was manned by him, owned by him. And he knew it.
“You’re my Master.”
Kayla Sutton faces a question no mother wants to face: what would you do to save your daughter? Broke and desperate, she siphons thousands from the company she works for in order to pay for her daughter’s life-saving treatment, but when Gage Channing discovers her theft, she is shocked to learn that her domineering boss has no intention of turning her over to the police. Instead he issues an ultimatum—submit to him, or go to jail.
As her daughter’s life hangs in the balance, Kayla must dig deep to find the strength to fully submit, to travel down the path of pain and pleasure. But when her past catches up to her, prompting a free fall into forbidden territory with a man she once fiercely loved, she knows her only recourse is to come clean about her transgression and beg her Master’s forgiveness . . . only she never imagined he’d have such a horrifying punishment awaiting her.
She faced sexual servitude in Ultimatum. In Enslaved she was seduced into craving it. Now she must find the strength to either accept the part of her that craves him still, or walk away for good . . .
NOTE TO READERS: THE DEVIL’S KISS TRILOGY is a novel with a BDSM edge and contains material that is only suitable for adult readers. If dark and edgy erotic fiction isn’t your kind of read, you might not enjoy this story. Approximately 52,000 words.
This was a dark and twisted story. I am not usually a fan of stories like this unless they have a good reason to help the plot, which this one did. If you were a single mother, whose child was going to die if you didn’t find the money to get her treatment, how far would you go to save your daughter’s life? That is what Kayla had to decide.
She had stolen some money from her boss, instead of turning her over to the police he gave her the option to work off the debt by being his sex slave. She would have to do what ever he wanted and if she used her safe word the deal was off. In return for her service, he would not only forget that she stole money from him, he would cover her daughters bills and get her the treatment she needed. So what would Kayla do? Her mother’s love answered that for her, she became Gage’s sex slave.
Now as I said, that wouldn’t have been enough reason for the dark and twisted plot for me, BUT there is so much more to this story that we discover as time goes on. Kayla had a first love that she gave up to marry the father of her child. That turned into an abusive relationship that escaping from almost killed her. While dealing with a sick daughter, being a sex slave to Gage, worrying about going to jail if Gage turns her in, her first love comes back into her life. She longs to be in his arms again but she can’t because the rules of Gage strictly says she isn’t allowed to talk to another man.
This author gave us such a wild ride as secrets are exposed and we see how everyone is linked together in this story. Just when I thought I had things figured out, it got even crazier. There are a lot of sex scenes, and I will warn you a few of those are rape scenes, so if you are not into those, then you might want to avoid this book, BUT by the end of the book you will see that things aren’t always as they appear. Kayla had feelings for her first love AND for Gage, she was struggling to figure out why she would fall for being his submissive and take his punishments yet the thought of her ex husbands abuse made her ill. She grappled with her own emotional conflict through out the book. At one point she had to admit she was going back to Gage not only because he was paying her daughters bills, but because she was attached to him, her body longed for him, while her heart longed for her first love.
This book was one wild ride for me, once again just when I thought I hated Gage, he would show more of his true self and I felt empathy for him. There were times I wanted to shake sense into Kayla and tell her to run the other way, but once she was with Gage she showed a side of herself that needed the healing only he could give her. As I said, it is dark and wild and twisted and should come with a warning for the sex scenes and violence, but for me personally it was worth the ride.
