Tainted Heart: A Dark Captive Romance – Skye Bailey

“Audrey, understand something, here right now, you belong to me. You’re mine! You do whatever I say, whenever I say. I’m going to do whatever I want to you. I’m going to break you into a million pieces. Then I’m going to put you back together the way I want to.”

Audrey and Flynn are each other’s soulmates, married and mated for life. Nothing could undo their happily ever after, until something does, and just like that, everything changes.

Flynn was a changed man, a broken man. He wasn’t the same man she’d married. He’d seen and done horrible things. There was a darkness in him now that wasn’t there before, and he couldn’t undo it. It was a part of him. He wouldn’t taint her with his love; so he went far away. So far away as to never have to worry about running into her. He went to the other side of the world, to a place ice-cold just like his heart. But then destiny decided to play a cruel joke and now she’s in his sights again. He can’t think, can’t live knowing she’s so close but yet out of his reach.

He wants her back. He wants to imprint himself on her and not only mark her but crave for her to be marked by him. But he was a changed man now. Could he be enough for her? Could he still love her the way she needed? Whatever the outcome, he couldn’t turn back now. He had to keep moving forward. He’d already taken her…
