It was a debt to be settled, a price to be repaid.
Sold. My body, mind, and soul, are given to the most terrifying man I’ve ever met.
Violent, commanding, gorgeous, and sinister.
He’s a killer, a thief, and feared by many.
He has the ability to pin me to the ground with one single look and make me feel things I don’t want too.
Feeding off my fears, he holds me captive in his mansion away from the rest of the world.
I know what’s to come.
He’ll break me.
Take from me.
Soon enough my life will no longer be my own, but his.
Every part of my body, every breath I take, and every beat of my heart will belong to him.
He’s determined to settle the debt by taking everything from me, what he doesn’t know is that he’ll never have my soul or my love.

A groan escapes her lips, and I smile against her mouth knowing full well she enjoys my lips on hers. I coax her lips open, slowly invading her mouth with my own. She tastes delectable, and I feel as if I won’t ever be able to get enough of her.
Her small hands skim across my chest and onto my back. Her nails rake my skin, and I’m on the verge of losing the last shred that is holding me back from taking her right here and now.
Pulling back, I take in the red splotches spreading across her cheeks as her big, brown, doe eyes look back at me. She looks a bit taken back but more importantly, she seems thoroughly satisfied.
“Not so much of a monster now, am I?” I joke, my finger swiping across her plump bottom lip.
“You’re still a monster…” she retorts, pulling away from me as if she is embarrassed to have kissed me, and enjoyed it.
“Remember that sweetheart, when I bury my face between those creamy thighs of yours,” I smirk as I get up from the bed.
