“I’m not the man of your dreams. I'm the man of your nightmares.”
My name is Livvi, and for the next 13 months I’ll be on my knees, paying off my father's debts, owned by a man who seeks to destroy me. There’s been a plot against my family for years, and I am the tapestry upon which he plans to paint his sadistic revenge.
But I may yet have a Champion. He’s a man with a dark past, and his deception leaves me stunned. He wants me, too, and promises to keep me alive. The price, however, is complete submission to his desires.It’s an offer without guarantees, and I have no choice but to accept it.
This is a short story with unequal power exchanges that explores the dark sides of obsession. In the end it is a romance, with a HEA.
