Amanda needs our book help! GASP!!!!!!!! The first part of her question (a Beauty and the Beast aspect) had me immediately thinking of a few contemporary romances (like maybe from Katy Regnery)?
But then she mentioned the super-dark aspect and…. eeeeeeeep!! I have not read this one, but I’m dying to know.
This is probably a strange email, but I love your reading lists and frequently get suggestions from you.
Therefore, I was hoping you’ve read this book that I encountered maybe 5+ years ago, but CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME remember the title. It’s not much to go off of, but please let me know if it sounds at all familiar to you.
Dark Romance- possibly having to do with beauty and the beast?
A handsome guy lives alone in an old creepy mansion, has a soundproof room in his basement where he tortures and kills women. Falls in love with a girl, is basically abusive and obsessed with her. I have more that may help, but don’t want to include any spoilers!
I appreciate your help!
Has a touch of that horror/psych thriller book called “The Butterfly Garden (The Collector Book 1)” that freaked me out so much (here’s my review), so I just might want to read this. Or maybe it’s tooooo dark for me?
Anyone have a guess?
Nicole: Possibly Mine (A Dark Erotic Romance Novel) by Aubrey Dark. I don’t remember if he was in a mansion though.
Rhonda: Is it Behind Closed Doors: A Novel?
Amanda: No, neither of those books are it but thank you for trying! Perhaps some more details will help, but they are spoilers. Be warned!
I’m pretty sure they end up getting married and it becomes much darker. She knows what he is and is trying to find a way out. She becomes pregnant, but knows she doesn’t want him in the picture so she shoots and kills him.
Amanda: I finally found it!! Fiendish: A Twisted Fairytale by Meka James
Maryse: YAY!!!! Thank you so much for letting us know and following up, Amanda!!! Now we can read it too! 😀
