Claire Nichols endured the CONSEQUENCES of Anthony Rawlings’ vendetta.
When she first arrived to his home, her goal was survival. Through strength and compartmentalization Claire captivated her captor. Her resilience in the face of his rule threatened Anthony’s well developed plan. Domination became desire and power turned to love.
Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect. Yet, reality was a roller coaster of emotion. Claire’s world teetered on the edge of sanity as Antony monitored her every move. When given the opportunity to flee, Claire drove away. A fateful decision which set a well laid plan into motion.
Conspiracy and unfulfilled promises result in an early prison release for Claire. Will it be that easy? Faced with freedom from her past… can Claire seize it? Can she build a new life, mend her broken spirit, become the woman she once was, and seek her own revenge? Or is it all a game? And does the game master have different plans?
Ms. Romig has done it again. This can’t really be categorized as a “romance” although sorry, again I think I might be the only reader who loved Tony. Ms. Romig again treats the reader to a satisfying story and memorable characters. She also establishes a very strong sense of place and each location will stay with you long after you finish this book. Kinda can’t wait for Book #3 in this series, CONVICTED. I don’t want Claire and Tony’s story to end!
Oh and if I neglected to mention it, Tony is HOT. Ms. Romig has been quoted as saying that she originally envisioned Jon Hamm and Natalie Portman as Tony and Claire. My vote goes to either Joe Manganiello or David Gandy (of course). Read. This. Book. Be warned: you will stay awake until 3 AM many nights in a row, you will ignore your chores and your family, and your work might suffer. You will not see these twists and turns coming.
