Visions of Red: Boxed Set
Published on 5-3-15 Genres: Adult, Dark, Erotic Romance, Thriller
Criminal profiler Sadie Bonds knows blood. Her affair with the gruesome, dark world of killers began long before she started applying her analytical skills to investigate gory crime scenes. She gets inside the killers' heads, breaks them down, relates to them on an arcane level. She prefers it this way--because it's safer to ally herself with the villain than the victim. At least, that's how she's coped ever since she was abducted and tortured as a teen. She will never be a victim again. Now, she's honed her skills in order to bring justice to these ritualistic offenders. Working alongside her colleagues, armed with sharp wit and a SIG, Sadie always catches her sadist. Until one ruthless serial killer gets inside Sadie's head, turning the tables. He knows her secrets. Her obsessions. The darkest, most deviant part of her soul. When she meets Colton Reed, dangerous stakes are raised as he threatens to unravel her control and reveal her darkest fantasies. The sexy-as-sin bondage rigger at an exclusive BDSM club pushes her boundaries, forcing her to acknowledge that side of herself she fears. Plunged into a realm of torture and suffering, pain and pleasure, Sadie balances on the razor-sharp edge of two intersecting worlds threatening to swallow her.
I follow him inside.
The air vacates my lungs in a chest-crushing exhale.
Gleaming silver fetish toys line the wall. Clamps. Chains. Leather. A red cane is prized and center. Ropes of all shades, widths, sizes coil against the black, dangle from above. At the far end, a St. Andrew’s cross.
A torture chamber.
Colton must sense my unease, because his hand tightens around mine as he leads me deeper into the room. “This is my personal…space.” He turns to face me, his mouth a hard line, eyebrows furrowed. “I’m more of a collector than a Dom, Sadie. My passion is bondage, ropework in particular. So don’t let the decoration intimidate you. Or scare you.”
Intimidate? No…that’s the wrong word. Scare? Not powerful enough to express the sickening fear invading my soul. This is a dungeon—too similar to the one where I was sealed away in for days…lost. Helpless. Stripped of my self.
And though it’s frustrating to be so confused, so torn over the lure I feel toward bondage, there is no mistake that I will never be a victim again.
I control this. I have to.
“Sadie,” Colton says, his voice raw, aching.
I suck in a steadying breath and look up to meet his intense gaze. “A monster shouldn’t fear her element,” I say. “I’m just so fucked up.”
He moves so quickly, my breath catches, my body frozen. His hand releases me only to grasp my face, his palm firm against my cheek, thumb braced over my chin. “What happened tonight?” His icy gaze traces the contours of my face, analyzing my tells. “What’s the trigger that pushed you here, into my arms, Sadie?”
Holding his stare, I give nothing away. I’m trained to know how to control my features, but my head is screaming just to let go. “Nothing,” I say. “It’s just time that I—”
“Bullshit,” he bites out, and I flinch against his hold.
Licking my lips, I savor the coarse feel of his palm on my skin. “The crime scene,” I start. “It should disgust me. Cord banding the victim’s wrists…ankles. Limbs stretched and aching…the tightening of the binding until your will evaporates. The feel of hands touching, taking…pressure—” I break off and attempt to look away, but Colton holds me firmly in place. “I should hate it. Loathe it. But I don’t. I desire it so deeply…it hurts. And I like the pain.”
A low growl rumbles from deep within Colton’s chest. His hand clamps harder to my face as he moves in closer, no more separation between us. “There’s nothing wrong with you, goddess. Just the absolute tragedy that I didn’t make you mine first.”
No I dont think I would lol
I have tried small amounts of bondage…wrists and legs tied…i have heard of the more riskier ones like spreader bars and such….i think i would be willing to give it a shot…its all for my pleasure at the end of the day…wooooo
Only with someone I trusted like my husband.
Maria Theresa Santos
I dont think so
i guess no
No, not for me.
i think i would try it if my husband know how lol
Yes, I’d try bondage!
I would try it only with someone I trust.
I would try mild bondage, handcuffs, a scarf.
Entered , liked, shared, thank you
Yes I would try bondage.
I would give it a try with someone I really trusted.
No, I don’t think I would.
No I dont think I would.
Maybe with someone i trust
Angela (Star Gazer Leo) Thomas
No I would Not try Bondage
Yes, I’d try it, why not?!
No definitely not…
mmm no ..i dont ..think so
can the winner choose the amazon gift card for amazon.ca?
I guess so ..
I would try it definitely as long as I’m with an experienced trusting person I think it would be so amazing.
sure why not
Nothing more than handcuffs.
Yes, I’ll try almost anything once….
I don’t think I could or would. The partner would have to be someone I trusted implicitly and that in itself would be an achievement!
I would love to try bondage…but I am a kinky girl in a loving vanilla marriage. All my bondage has to come from books?
No, I wouldn’t try bondage, at least not with my husband.
I think I would but only with someone I will trust and nothing risky or extremal
Only if you paid me $1,000,000 dollars
Yes, I would try bondage. I already have. I like tying him up more than being tied up though.
I have tried a little bondage but nothing too serious. As long as I trust my partner i’m willing to try just about anything.
No! I don’t think so.
I think I’d give it a try
I would try it.
Possibly…just not to hardcore!
I don’t think so, but never say never…
I’m not sure lol
I don’t think I would. Looks great in a storyline but in reality would probably scare the crap out of me.
Why not? More likely with restraints I could get out of. Any violation of my trust and that would be it for the relationship.
A pos, Idk jajaja
Maybe I might try light bondage. Nothing too over the top. Thanks for the chance
Hell yes! I am fascinated by the Shibari ropes.
Maybe light bondage
As long as I had complete trust in the person; I’d try it.
No judgement to who would but its just not for me
Yes I would try at least once.
Loved this series!
Yes, I think I would try it.
No, not really my thing.
can’t wait to get my copy
Maybe light bondage.
Don’t think I would.
hehee I just might
Depends – Hhmmm good question!
Yes would try bondage, have in the past
I would depending on the trust in my partner.
If I could find someone I trusted, then yes.
I have a very good dominant partner, and I trust him completely. We’ve done many things together, and as a switch he allowed me to bind him as a test of his strength and control. I have also done bondage with others. I do enjoy parts of it, but as I have a bad past, certain things I am still not comfortable with. He knows and completely accepts my limits.
Can’t wait to start this new series
probably not but not sure.
I love light bondage, like blindfolds,ties,cuff,spanking, candle wax but nothing hardcore
Yes I would….
Yes I would try it!
I have done some bondage play with my husband!
I’m not sure. Maybe if I trusted someone enough but I don’t really see myself doing it. Although some parts sound exciting. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Maybe a little bit of bondage, but nothing too much. Like only hands, not both hands and feet at the same time.
Yes, but only with someone I trusted.
Only with someone I trusted.
I think I would.
No…I have a mild form of PTSD and being restrained is mildly terrifying.
I think I would like it to stay a fantasy and not a reality
Caro J Roberts
I might try some light bondage.
Yup. I’m all for it.
I can honestly say yes, I would try bondage, I’ve tried bondage, and I love bondage ?
I’ve tried a little bit, being tied up, blindfold while eating food, just kinda harmless stuff, but I’m not interested in anything much past that.
I’ll try anything once…. 😀
Ohhh hell YES!!
Only with my husband
Amber Rae Johnson
With someone I trusted yes.
already have !
Not sure, Maybe.
I don’t really see the big appeal
Such an awesome giveaway! ❤️
These books sound amazing!
Thank you for the chance ❤️?
I love to read and watch it in movies and books for example “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy, but in real life “No, not for me.” AWESOME giveaway!!!! Thank you for the chance.
I would give it a shot lol
I think I would try it to certain limits.
Absolutely!! Sounds right up my alley!lol
I’d be open to trying it with my husband. Thanks for the giveaway!!
Emely Bareng Alayo
Haven’t been in an intimate relationship. I’m single and V, but who knows, with all these delicious books that I’ve been reading, they make the idea very appealing. Someday, I’ll know when the right time and right guy comes. Bdw, just 1clicked the boxed set on amazon. Can’t wait to read em. ?
Oh yeah… Hubby would love that!!

I haven’t wanted to so far. I doubt I would try the hard core bondage tho
Yeah, but only with someone I trust.
All about trust, most definitely.
No, I’m too shy!
I’m thinking no…
i had enough pain,tight spaces for a life time so no!!!
depending on my partner that could be a yes or no
I’d try it!!!
I would never try bondage.
Yes, it’s sounda interesting & fun!
No. At least that is my answer for right now.
Yes, and I LOVE it!! 😀
I think I’d have to begin with me being the dom. I have an issue with control. Clearly, though, the answer is “yes,” as long as it was with a person I trusted.

I think it all depends haha. Thanks for the giveaway.
If it was with someone I really loved and trusted and that’s what they liked then yes, I would try it.

Cara HaveBook WillSurvive Fisher

Already do! lol LOVE IT!!!
Michelle Evans recently posted…Book Tour: Kingpin by Lili Saint Germain
I have tried it before. It’s not something I enjoy particularly. I have control issues. In fiction though? Sexy.
i don’t know.

Yes, I’d try it.
Stacey Clifford recently posted…**COVER REVEAL & GIVEAWAY** Submerged by Lacey Black
No, I don’t think I would.
Yes I would.
Yes I would
Yes, I would and have!
Would you ever try bondage? No not again, too easy to lead to abuse in my life.
Given the opportunity, I would, yes.
Yea I would probably try bondage. But not too much of it though. Like my wrists and legs.
Only if I fully trusted my partner.
I enjoy some of the tamer endeavors, but not the intense ones like ball gags or spreader bars or cat o nine tail whippings. Consider me vanilla with a bit of a twist of flavoring….LOL!
Jody F. recently posted…Release Day Celebration for Can’t Hold Back by Serena Bell (Review & GIVEAWAY)
I would try it with someone I knew well and fully trusted.
No, only read it in books. Ty for the chance. ?
I’d be more likely to tie up hubby!
I haven’t tried but hell yeah if I was the one doing the tying up, lol.
suuuuuuuuuuure.. with the right person
with my hubby, yes
Yes in fact I have tried it a few times especially with my husband
Jo Anne Vincenti
No, I wouldn’t like that at all
Yes ! I like light bondage though, like blindfolds,ties,cuff,spanking, but nothing hardcore
Sure why not??
Maybe if I was with someone I trusted
Yes, but not too hard core.
I would have to really trust the person in order to fully enjoy bondage. Thanks for the giveaway!
I’ve dabbled in the mild aspects of it, but nothing hard core. I must admit, I enjoyed it, but lots of it has to do with being with the right partner.
I’d absolutely love to try it
I would try bondage if my husband would be willing.
No I don’t think I would.
If I trust my partner then yes, it’s about trust just as much as it is sex
It’s not really my thing. I like to be in control. I could maybe be the one doing it to someone else if they wanted but not the one having it done.
I would try it but only with someone I trust COMPLETELY and probably only light to moderate bondage. As far as the harder core stuff, I’ve learned to never say never.
I’d like to keep an open mind.
Light bondage with scarf or something soft, maybe. But not likely with ropes.
Yes! But I would also like to do the tying-up!
Maybe…just to try it ☺ Thank u for the giveaway and Merry christmas❤
Yes, but with lots of variables to consider.
Maybe,but not hard core 😀
Maybe. Not sure but can’t say I wouldn’t try maybe.
No I don’t think I would
I would with my husband.
Thank you for the giveaway.
I dont know Its not something Ive really thought about
No, I don’t think so
Definitely! I’ve fantasized about it so many times. Would be an adventurous night!
I would be willing to give it a try!
gay rosalyn guinto

Juli Huber Hall
I would love to but my hubby doesn’t seem very interested. Bummer!
Maybe…If I was with the right partner
I have…loved it!
