Publisher's Summary

I didn't ask her to be my bride. It wasn't up to her. She has always been mine.

Stephanie Michaelson was given to me, and she is mine. The sooner she learns that, the less often her cute little bottom will end up well-punished and sore as she is reminded of her place.

But even as she promises obedience with tears running down her cheeks, I know it isn't the sting of my belt that will truly tame her. It is what comes next that will leave her in no doubt she belongs to me. That part will be long, hard, and shameful...and I will make her beg for all of it.

Publisher's note: Given includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

If you like stories filled with danger and suspense, secrets and lies, lots of dirty sex and full of twists and turns, then this is the book for you. This is a fast-paced dark mafia romance with an arranged marriage between Christian and Stephanie. It is intense and kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this book if you love dark romance. Thomas Locklear has a wonderful male and female voice and does a great job bringing this story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Whom Can You Trust?

Piper Stone has written a powerful story of betrayal, mafia families that basically rule the country, intrigue, assassinations, arranged marriages, and a plot full of twists and turns. Christian and Stephanie will face many challenges on their road to love and survival in the violent world that they live in. They're both strong and will help each other. There's so much action in the story that you don't have time to get bored. Thomas Locklear is a master storyteller and voice artist. He puts so much emotion and heart and soul into his narration. I forgot that I was listening to a single narrator due his expertise of portraying the female voice. I highly recommend this Audible book if you like dark Mafia romance.

Secrets & Lies!

Christian was a fantastic dominant dark hero, this books was a good listen with some great twists at the end and a HEA, Thomas Locklear’s voice is so good but I would have preferred that this book have dual narration with a him and a female narrator, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Dark Romance, Mafia Romances and Romantic Suspense.

Intriguing listen!

This is intriguing. I could not stop listening to this. The suspense in here is sooo good! I never got it! Which makes me love this even more. The story flows along nicely and easily kept my interest. Of course I love the whole mafia-like family drama. The characters are secretive which drew me too them. Christian and Stephanie have quite the history and story together. As they are finding their way a lot is happening in the background. I loved it! This story has it all! Betrayal, steamy sexiness, secrets, power and above all else love of family. I did listen to this on audio. Thomas Locklear did an excellent job. He has that perfect gruff and domineering voice to be Christian as well as the other men.

Good narration!

If you like hot dominate men and have a spanking fetish, you’ll probably enjoy this one. 😉. The story is ok, pretty good but not great. The narration was wonderful, great voice!

monster or hero

A great read/listen. I adore the vocal tone used for Christian, omg, rough and dominant just like the character! Really good storyline a bit hard to follow in the beginning but quickly captivates with twists that will have you on the edge of your seat. Character chemistry is off the charts hot. A great sizzling read with a darkness you can't help but love! This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

great mystery romance

A cult with a higher plan. Enemies or allies around every corner. Greed, power, fall in line or pay the price! Christian is not one to fall in line or go down easily in the face of multiple betrayals and tons of lies. The extent of the lies are mind boggling! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job with voices and expressions bringing the characters to life. I've heard a lot of improvement from this narrator.

I expected melt my phone heat with this one. I’ve read and listened to many of Pipers books and they are all amazing, what I didn’t expect was just how hot this one would be. Absolutely loved it and the narration definitely put it to the next level

Excellent storyline

I absolutely loved this book. The characters are likeable for different reasons. The leading lady is a sweet woman that you want to protect and the Hero is an Alpha that you want to slap just so you get punished!! Thomas gives yet another fantastic performance.

I loved listening to this story. The narrator Thomas Locklear is brilliant. Two people who have been love with each, for many years. Their families have hated each for years. A great listen.

Great Story!💜

This was a great forced marriage romance. Angsty yet sexy. Terrific storyline and amazing characters. Some exciting twists & unexpected moments. I did feel like there was a lot of story telling more than dialogue but I’m hoping it’s a set up for a series. The narration was HAF and IMO Thomas Locklear has one of the best female character voices out there. Absolutely brilliant. This book has an HEA. I highly recommend this book. Sisters Spotlight 💜
