Cruel God

My name is Rex Cain...but you can call me god.

I am the ruler of the Cain empire—a legacy built from the blood and bone of others.
Here in my kingdom, only the strongest survive, and only the wicked can thrive.

That's why I took my father's life before he had a chance to take mine. But my life doesn't flow through my veins. It flows through hers, the girl he tried to take from me. The woman I've stained my hands in blood for.

My most prized possession.
My weakness.
My butterfly.

She thinks I'm her savior, and I'll burn kingdoms to the ground to keep it that way.

While she waits for me on her knees, I'm a king who reigns without mercy. While she obeys my every command, I'm a dictator who starts wars. And while she breathes, I'm a man with something to lose.

My name is Rex Cain, and she is my Hope.

The Villain

A Dark Captive Standalone Romance

Charlotte Moore is my obsession.
She has no idea who I am, but I know everything about her.

At night when she plays her cello, she thinks she’s alone. But she’s not.
I’m there, hiding in the shadows, watching her, studying her, allowing her music to soothe my soul.

They call me the Musician, the Grim Reaper of the Italian Mafia.
I’m a contract killer with a soft spot for a cellist. A man tempted by her innocence.
The more I watch her, the more I want to be close to her.
Touch her. Feel her. Ruin her.

I’m not a good man, and I never will be.
I’ve never missed a target, and I don’t plan to.
No matter how much her existence consumes me, her past carries secrets I need to bury.

And that’s why Charlotte Moore is my next victim.

Bared Betrayal

I have a huge diamond ring on my finger, something that shows the world I’m spoken for. To me,
it’s a reminder of a secret I can’t take with me when I walk down the aisle.
My new fiancée just became an overnight sensation on the Hollywood scene, and we went from
quiet dinners to champagne towers and caviar croquettes with A-listers. While Sebastian basks
in his newfound fame, I’m trying to figure out how to fix myself so I can be a good wife.
Deep down, I know there’s only one way. I need to face my demons rather than try and bury
them. But Sebastian can’t be the one to help me do it. He can’t know my secret, not if I want a
future with him, a man whose life is now under the public spotlight.
It has to be someone else. A complete stranger. Someone I’ll never see again. Better yet,
someone who won’t care; who won’t ask questions or hesitate when I tell him what it is I need.
It’s the only way.
Just one night, one stranger, and my own twisted game to try and break free from my past.
But my world implodes when I realize I’ve merely traded one secret for another—and that secret
just walked in at my engagement party introducing himself as Gabriel King…
My future father-in-law.
