Three Dark Hours by Maggie Carpenter


For Angelo

Marian Tee - 2016
    Beautiful, twisted, imperfect. He opened my eyes to the truth about myself, of how the kind of love I craved was different from everyone else’s. Pain was the sweetest agony, cruel and jealousy the most exquisite foreplay. He was my sadist, and I was his perfect match.

Sheer Submission

Hannah Ford - 2018
     The words burned against my brain, searing hot. Then another thought, more dangerous than the first. Tie her wrists, brand her, teach her. She was wearing a dress that was a size too small, and I knew immediately she didn’t have a boyfriend waiting for her at home, because no man would have let her out of the house in that. The dress was red. Short. A sweetheart neckline that was supposed to make her look innocent, but did nothing except push her full curves up and over the material. Her hair was dirty blond and long, tousled around her shoulders. She was sipping a glass of champagne and looking around nervously, her wide eyes flicking from person to person at the party, as if she were afraid she was going to get caught. What have you done, bad girl? Something you should be punished for? My palm burned as I imagined taking her over my knee, that short little dress pushed up, the place between her legs pulsing. The feeling of desire I had looking at her was like an electric shock to my soul. My instincts said to leave her alone, that this would end in nothing but tragedy. My instincts had always served me well in the past. But this time, I decided to ignore them. An innocent girl. A ruthless man. An inevitable, sordid devastation…

R.E. Saxton - 2015
    He’s spent six years planning his revenge, and denied the pleasure of destroying the long-dead murderer, he’s turned his attention to the man’s daughter. She’ll pay for her father’s sins, and revenge will be sweet. After a lifetime of disappointments, Katriona shouldn’t be surprised when the vacation she’s supposedly won ends up making her a captive to Declan, a man she’s never forgotten—a man now determined to claim her and use her in his twisted pursuit of vengeance. Knowing his intentions, it shouldn’t be difficult to fight him, but with his every touch, and every mark he leaves on her as a sign of his possession, she falls deeper under his spell and into the darkness inside her. Pleasure is nice, but pain is even sweeter, and love is the ultimate agony… This novel has content some readers might find objectionable. It is a dark romance with dark themes.

If you like a possessive, deeply (emotionally) scarred alpha male with revenge on his mind and the dark urge to possess his woman in every way possible, spend some time with Declan. He’s pretty sweet deep down…very deep down.

You Should Smile

Renee Leigh - 2015
     Unsure, I squinted my eyes from the sun, used my hand as a shade, and turned toward his voice. “I’m sorry?” “You should smile,” he stated louder. “It’s a beautiful fall day.

I’d heard the phrase ‘sex on a stick’ before, but never knew what it really meant. I did then. A smile slowly crept across my lips. “You’re not supposed to tell women to smile. It can be offensive,” I said, teasing him. “But you are smiling now, aren’t you?” he teased back. “True. Any more advice for me?” I met his eyes. They were deep blue. He nodded his head slowly. “Yes.
