Personified evil’s whore.
Kidnapped. Taken. Abducted.
Any of the three define what happened that night.
Transported to a private island that’s home to the rich and elite, it’s clear money and power reign supreme.
But that’s only what they want people to believe.
Something sinister and perverse lurks just beneath the opulence. It watches every breath I take and notes each move I make, ensuring that the purpose in which I’m here is never forgotten.
There’s a hierarchy amongst the natives and I am the exclusive possession of Alexander ‘Diablo’ Hawthorne, a gorgeous man that is esteemed as the devil. His wishes are simple to understand, but obediently giving in to his demands goes against every ounce of human decency and morality I possess.
My refusal to bend or conform does me more harm than good. It isn’t long before an affair that is maniacal and twisted begins to consume us.
As we spiral down a path of depravity that leads to the darkest depths of hell, I must decide how I want this to end.
Captor and captive.
Possessor and possession.
Life or death.
Do I become what he needs, or do I risk it all just to die by his hand?
