Welcome to the Saturday Spankings Blog Hop! It's the day after Christmas and I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
Today I'd like to share a snippet from Retribution, which will release on January 12, 2016! This is from Adam's POV. It's a scene form the day he abducts Elle, locking her up for the first time.
She sat naked since I’d tugged her panties from her. “I don’t understand,” she wailed. “I don’t.”
I stood back and looked at her. She sat trembling on the cot, her arms spread out to the sides, raised a little higher than her head. I closed the space between us and wrapped my hand around her throat, pushing her head into the wall, her eyes huge as I pressed.
“You don’t understand?” I shook my head. “Or do you turn the other way when something doesn’t suit you? You’re no better than your father and you deserve everything you’ve got coming.”
Blurb for Retribution
Payback’s a bitch — or it would be for Elle.
Fifteen years ago, my sister was kidnapped. For months, she’d endured hell. Somehow, she’d survived it. Someway, she’d escaped her captors. But it hadn’t mattered. In fact, it had been like losing her twice, because six weeks after she came home, she was dead, and the man responsible was alive and well, oblivious to her fate, ignorant to what he had coming.
Fifteen years I’d been waiting for this moment, all that time, planning, preparing, readying to put things into motion. To finally make the SOB pay for what he’d done.
Killing him was too easy. Too quick. No. There was a much better way to exact revenge.
Take what he loved best.
I just didn’t realize that in the process of destroying the girl, I’d destroy myself.
“I only want your pain.”
I hadn’t understood what those words meant, not really. Not until he made me understand.
I noticed Adam the very first day he moved into my building. He was a badass on a bike in a thousand-dollar suit. When he looked at me, it was with a hunger just this side of obscene.
Our meetings were strange, accidental. Too coincidental. There was something about Adam. Something I couldn’t put my finger on.
Something I couldn’t resist.
He told me I didn’t know him. He warned me to run as far from him as I could. He was moody. Dark. I’d found it romantic. I didn’t know, and I wouldn’t realize until it was too late that he’d meant for me to heed his warnings. That some part of him had hoped I would run, that I would escape him.
For too many years, vengeance had fueled him. It had taught him hate. The object of that hate? My father. And me? I was the means to my father’s end. Adam would destroy my father by destroying me.
I accused him of being a monster, of being no different than those who took his sister, but even in the harshest moments, all I could see in his eyes was pain. And like a fool, all I wanted was to touch that darkness.
To make it light.
