He's empty, inhuman, dishonest, and cruel. She's never wanted anyone more.
Sydney has lived in fear for eight years after freelance assassin, Merc, failed to rescue her from a cult-like militia group. Left in the hands of a sadistic man, she did whatever it took to survive. But Merc's last words gave her hope. Hope he'd be back to finish the job.
After Merc is betrayed by her father, Sydney becomes his target. He wields sex, drugs, lies, and love like weapons. Merc knows just what to do with a fearful girl like Sydney. He's in control. He's always in control.
But Sydney Channing is not what she appears. And Merc's only redeeming act--the very one that made Sydney's life a living hell--might just be his worst mistake yet.
WARNING: Meet Me In The Dark is a STANDALONE non-traditional DARK, CAPTIVE, ROMANTIC SUSPENSE. It is not intended for sensitive readers.
It’s finally here! The Merc Book! This is a standalone book, so if you are into the “dark” reads and have not read any other book by me, you can jump right in. I have two exclusive excerpts for you. One is here and one is on my author page.
“I’m waiting, bobcat,” he says.
I cringe at the name. It’s so degrading. But I’m running on instincts now. The training has taken over and I’m powerless to stop it, even if I wanted to. And I don’t. So, “More, please,” is my response.
“Take it all, Case. You told me eight years ago you owned me. So take it. Take me. Take me the way you promised when you left me behind to die.”
His hands are under my shoulders, urging me to sit up. I comply. Because that’s my job here tonight. And then he grabs my hair and turns me around so my head is at the top of the bed once more. I grab the rusty rails and open my legs, inviting him in.
He slaps my tit, then my face, holding it in a tight squeeze. So hard I bite my tongue and taste blood. “Whore,” he whispers.
“Your whore,” I whisper back.
“Don’t fucking forget it.”
“It’s my purpose in life, Case.”
He slaps my face again, but I like the sting. I like the sting and I like the way his cock drags across my clit now that he’s on top of me. His tip pushes against my pussy and even though I’m scared out of my mind, I ache for it. He thrusts inside me and I grip the rails harder. I close my eyes, but another slap brings me back to attention. He pumps inside of me, his huge cock stretching me so wide the tears fall down my face.
But then he pauses long enough to lie down next to me and turn me on my side. His hand eases down to my clit and he begins to strum as he fucks me. He plays me like the guitar. And I play him back—like a player.
I swell with feelings. I have never felt such emotion. Such hate and love. Such pain and pleasure.
I come like that. A conflict of emotions. A paradox. Simultaneously filled up and empty at the same time.
He pulls out and comes with me, once again shooting hot semen across my back in long squirts.
He rolls over, breathing heavier than I am. I turn to watch his reaction. His revelation, if you will. And I get something I never expected. A smile. “It’s not a hard fuck if it’s easy, Syd.”
“I’m a good little actress, Case. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done.”
