All my life I’ve been hiding, until there is no corner on this god-forsaken earth left for me to hide. I have to pay for the sins of my father. No one with Ellison blood in their veins is allowed to live, and I am the last of my bloodline.
I am kept in a container waiting for my death sentence to be carried out, when he comes. He is only known as ‘Predator’. No one knows who he works for, only that he leaves no one alive.
His every breath is filled with the last gasp of his dying prey.
But for some reason he doesn’t kill me.
I don’t know which is worse, the death sentence hanging over my head, or being at his mercy.
“Look at me, Cara,” and he waits until I do, “love is such a flawed thing. You can love someone but still leave them. What I feel for you goes way beyond that one word. I’m addicted to you. I feel protective of you. I breathe for you.” His eyes caress my face and follow the tears into my hair. “Love is really such a flawed word for what I feel. I live for you.”
Michelle Horst is from a small town in South Africa.
She’s been in love with reading from an early age. She has a passion for books, quotes and animals.
She first tried her hand at writing in early 2009 and as the first words started to form into a book, she knew she was hooked.
Dreams spilled onto pages, and that was the beginning of a wonderful journey. A journey filled with joy, passion and heart stopping moments. Most of all, it’s filled with such pride and peace as a story comes to life, and characters fill your life, living in the very walls of your mind, living in the minds of your readers.
Thank you to each and every reader and for choosing to escape in one of my books.
This is an incredibly well written book that will stay with you long after you’ve finished reading it and I loved every single thing about this! I am completely thrilled that I was fortunate enough to come across this amazing book and there isn’t a single thing that I would change about this. This story grabbed hold of me and yanked me in from page one and didn’t let go until the very last page. This is not a story that has any type of predictability to it and the storyline is one that was so refreshingly different for me that I didn’t want this to ever end. I even found myself intentionally slowing my reading down just so I could draw this book out a little bit longer and stay completely absorbed in the deliciously dark world created by this author. I am a huge fan of dark romance and this is the first book I’ve read by this author. I can honestly say that it definitely won’t be the last. This is not a typical romance story with hearts and flowers filled with good feels. This story explores the darker side of human nature and how two people who live in the darkness can find strength in each other to survive anything.
Cara has literally been through hell and back and every time I was hoping that her suffering would finally be over, something else would happen. I saw Damien as her source of strength and her reason for pulling through everything and this worried me since I feared that if something were to happen to Damien that she would inevitably fall without his support. It was nice to see her eventually find the strength inside of herself that she needed in order to survive this incredibly difficult lifestyle that she and Damien seem destined to live. I loved Cara and Damien together and am so glad that they were lucky enough to find each other amongst all of the pain and misfortune both of their lives seem to be made up of. I highly recommend this book to anyone and do warn that there is some difficult subject matter here that some may find offensive. If you’re a fan of incredible stories that stick with you then this one’s for you! To be honest, I would’ve given this one more than five stars if that were possible since I loved it that much.
