Looks like this is “Dark Week” for me. I dunno how that happens sometimes, ’cause right now I could use a dose of swooooon and giggles and bossy-but-sweet alpha male. But it looks like that book I’ve been waiting on has just gone live on Amazon, so I can’t resist. Remember that one I mentioned a week or so ago? Where he’s a known “hero”, but by the blurb, it sounds like he kidnaps someone?
Yep. That one. I read this synopsis about a month or two ago, and had a total blurb-jolt. And then… author sent me a copy. *bites nails*
Gah!! I was soooo in the mood for normal “alpha-male romance” but… you know me and these dark temptations. *crosses fingers that I’ll love it* Actually, it’s been mentioned, (below) that it’s not that dark. Okay, that’s good. I could use a bit of “less-dark” right now, reading wise.
They call me Hero.
I ask for nothing in return, and that makes me good.
That which makes me the ultimate predator also feeds dark impulses I’ve learned to control—until I bring her too close. For years I’ve watched her from afar, but what started out as duty has become obsession.
I work hard.
I play by the rules.
My scars are quiet and invisible, and that keeps me hidden.
One fateful walk home, I’m taken by someone I didn’t know I should fear. Captive and afraid, nobody will tell me why I’m confined to this hauntingly beautiful mansion. I’m given everything; I have nothing. He takes what he needs from me, and for that I hate him. But I might have loved him once.
And just because you’re reading this doesn’t mean I survive him.
*eeeeeep!!!!* That blurb gets me every time. So while my chest is aching for super-intense, butterfly inducing romance, there’s that bad-girl bit of me that’s just tooooo tempted to read this next. *slaps hands* Bad Maryse!! You’re playing with fire again!!
Hehe. I’m not the only bad girl in the bunch. *phew* Here are some comments from fellow readers that have read it…
Feifei: As for HERO, I’m really interested in seeing what you think! It’s pretty erotic lol Oh I didn’t think Hero was dark at all; it’s more erotica and suspense than anything
Nessa: SOOOOOO good Maryse!!
Amy: This one does look good!
Ann: i’m in the middle of it and it’s great!
