Evernight Publishing Dark Captive 2

Everyone has a dark side…

Dark Captive is an exclusive collection of dark erotic romance stories featuring alpha men with fierce sexual appetites. They’ll stop at nothing to get what they want. And they have their sights on one man. Possessive and bold, these heroes give their conquests exactly what they crave—to be taken … to be owned. Any resistance offered will be tested, but in the end love rules.

Kidnapping, abduction, and sexual slavery are just a few of the titillating taboo themes in this hand-picked manlove anthology.

At The Warehouse, boys are taken young and forced into slavery. T grew up there and is considered too old for most of the clients so the boss is willing to let them rough him up more than usual. But that changes when the man who’s supposed to be guarding him takes him away.

Diego wanted to avoid The Warehouse and the bad memories it held, but he’s sent there to act as a guard. When he realizes that a young man is being whipped to death, his anger forces him into action and he escapes with the slave.

But having a vulnerable companion brings out some very dark urges in Diego. Can T become the victim Diego needs? Can Diego avoid becoming the monster he despises?

“Mm hmm.” Ty lay face down on the bed, relaxed and content. He focussed on the feeling of Diego’s fingers on his skin. Everywhere Diego touched tingled. Ty couldn’t remember the last time anyone had handled him so gently. As the contact went on, Ty became increasingly aroused and he shifted on the bed to ease the discomfort of lying with his hard cock poking a mattress.
The touch vanished and Ty let out a tiny whimper. “Don’t stop,” he whispered.
The bed bounced a bit as Diego stood. With a sigh, Ty lifted his head to look at where Diego stood looking through a crack in the curtains. Getting to his feet, Ty approached Diego.
“What’s wrong?” Ty reached out and touched Diego’s shoulder causing the older man to jerk away and stride to the other side of the room.
“Don’t touch me.” Diego’s voice carried a hint of a growl.
Ty didn’t want to push Diego too hard, but he couldn’t figure out why he was reacting this way. “Why did you save me?”
Diego’s eyes widened. “Seriously? You think I saved you to have you for myself?”
Ty shrugged. “Why else would you do it?”
“Listen, kid. I’m at least ten years older than you, and I may have dragged you out of that hell hole, but I am not a good guy.”
Undeterred, Ty approached Diego again. “You’re a good guy to me.”
In a blur of motion, Diego grabbed Ty’s arm and yanked him forward. Ty cried out as Diego slammed him against the wall and grabbed him by the throat. With the older man pinning him against the wall and the wounds on his back screaming in protest, there was little Ty could do. When he looked into Diego’s eyes, the excitement glittering in them sent a thrill of fear through him.
“Would you change your mind if I told you that I get off on seeing the fear in your eyes? That I enjoy causing pain when I fuck?”
Ty struggled to draw breath and grabbed at Diego’s arm to try and pry the fingers off his throat, but Diego’s grip was too tight. It occurred to Ty that he might be in more trouble now than he had been back at The Warehouse. As he fought against Diego’s hold, the older man pressed his groin to Ty’s, grinding a sizeable erection against him. And then Ty realized that in spite of the fear, in spite of force being used against him, he was just as turned on as Diego.

My FIVE Star Review: 

It’s not a secret, I am a huge Amy Harmon fan and winning an advanced reader copy of this book absolutely made my day.  I’ve read every one of her books and each one has left me feeling every emotion possible deep down in my soul and this book is no different.

Amy’s words flow so well all I had to do was take them in and let them build the world she created so vividly in my mind.  Her scenes are very descriptive but I never felt overwhelmed or confused.  The story kept moving along with every chapter and I had a few moments of yes I was right and a few where I was shocked.  As I got closer to the end of the story, all I could think was I’m not ready for it to be over. I know you know what I mean. You’re reading a book with just one chapter left and you don’t want to read it because you know the story is coming to its end.  Every one of these wonderful characters sucked me in and I didn’t want to let them go.  Amy is an extremely talented storyteller and I look forward to reading more of her work with an additional publication coming out later this year.

One of the things that fascinated me most about the story were the names of her characters.  They are all unique and different.  Thank you, Amy for putting a Pronunciation Guide right at the beginning of the book.

I try very hard to never include spoilers in my reviews but I want to give you some words I think describe The Bird and the Sword.  There are good guys, bad guys, lifelong friends, protectors, secrets, kings, queens, castles, horses, animals, bloody battles and most of all, Love.

Go to Amazon right now and click buy on The Bird and the Sword.  You will not be disappointed!

More about The Bird and the Sword:

Swallow, Daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on heav’n or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, Daughter. Stay alive.

The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn’t speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would trade his soul and lose his son to the sky.
My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free.
But freedom will require escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a bird?
