Paula needs our book help! OMG this sounds so dark and painful!!! I can’t even imagine… I NEED to know this one too!
Please help look for this book – I have been searching for hours a day on my time off and cannot find it.
It was an arranged marriage – for when she comes of age or when the hero was older – the heroines father dies and her step-brother becomes her guardian.
He is horrible and tortures her – makes her beg for food – and when she does he cuts her arms to horrible scars. Also makes her have sex (but will not let his associates or friends take her virginity – just everything else)
