A Father’s Insistence by Anna Edwards

A Fathers Insistence eCover 72dpiOne of five women who endured horrific trials to win the hand of Nicholas Cavendish, Lady Joanna Nethercutt suffered greatly throughout the ordeal, ultimately losing to Victoria Hamilton. She swiftly finds herself sold by her own father, who’s determined she’ll be of use to him yet. For a year, she’s “trained” in preparation for marriage to Victoria’s brother, with whom she’ll be expected to produce heirs that will one day strengthen and continue the very society responsible for all of Joanna’s torment.
 
In the space of a breath, Theodore Hamilton is thrust into a secret society he knew nothing about, and married to a woman who seems terrified of his very existence. Suddenly, his carefree yet honorable life is filled with secrets and shadows, allies and enemies, leaving Theodore unsure who to trust…starting with his broken bride. His lure to the delicate beauty is tempered by external influence, lies and manipulation from all sides.
 
In this breathless conclusion to the Dark Sovereignty series, Theodore must decide where his loyalties lie, and race to destroy the evil men responsible for the immeasurable suffering of everyone he holds dear—including the wife he never wanted, but can’t possibly live without.

“As you know, your sister had a baby just over a month ago, and Rose takes up most of her time at the moment. I’ll be returning home to them as soon as possible.”

“So you can abuse them like you did Joanna?”
“I’m sorry?” Nicholas genuinely looks surprised, and I can’t help but think of him as a fantastic actor. “The only thing I’ve ever done to Lady Joanna is to brand her, and that was beyond my control. I’ve not seen her in over a year. In fact, the second I saw she was here, I came to check on her. I’m amazed to find she’s married to you.”
I snort a laugh at the utter stupidity of his declaration. We all know the truth, so there’s no point in lying about it anymore.
“Do I really look like a fool?” I snarl at him through gritted teeth.
“Do I need to answer that?” Nicholas retorts, and my anger flares enough that I ball a fist and prepare to send it flying into his smug rapist face. At that moment, William and Tamara appear, and Joanna grabs hold of my hand before I have a chance to make a show of myself.
“Please,” she whimpers with a cry of desperation.
“Ok.” I turn to her as William comes and stands steadfast beside his brother while Tamara stands next to her husband.
“Theo, please. Listen to them,” Tamara implores.
“Stay out of this,” I bark and focus my attention on Nicholas. “Isn’t it enough you have taken my sister and brainwashed her? And now you’ve wound your claws around Tamara as well. I may have lost them, but I’ll not let you take Joanna. You’ve done enough damage to her. I’ve seen the scars and heard the screams when she’s sleeping. You’re sick individuals…both of you.”
“Is he nuts?” William exclaims.
“Not now.” Nicholas holds his hand up to his brother.
“He must be if he thinks we did that to Joanna. It was his father who bought her.”
“William,” Nicholas replies tersely.
“Ok. Time for me to do that shut up thing.” Earl Lullington folds his arms across his chest.
“Thank you.” Nicholas breathes a sigh of relief. “Theodore, I don’t know what you’ve been told, but I’ve never hurt Joanna, save for the brand. If you just ask her, I’m sure she’ll confirm it.”
I feel Joanna press closer in behind me.
“Please, Joanna. Victoria desperately misses her brother. She’s suffered so much. Now’s the time we all need to pull together and support not only her but also help you to deal with whatever you’ve been through. What I’m trying to do, at the moment, is change the society and make certain there’ll be no more sales, and no more demanding of women. This must end. I have a daughter…a beautiful little girl, and I want her to grow up free.” Nicholas tries to step closer to us to plead with Joanna, but I hold a hand out to ensure he keeps his distance.
“Enough. Joanna doesn’t need to confirm anything to you. I know exactly what you are.”
“Let her speak.” Nicholas orders with a menacing tone that has several passers-by immediately scatter from the hallway we’re standing in. The chandelier lights even seem to shudder with fear.
“He did it.” Joanna sobs from behind my back

Book Reviews 101 – Star quality

I’ve had some questions asking how I define a 5-star review.  What does the book have to have, have to be in order for me to dole out a 5-star review?

Here are my review guidelines that I try to follow.  There are times, that even if the book has good grammar, spelling, and just minor issues, that I will still give it a lesser star.  This is due to me not enjoying the book.  These are my opinions of the books that I’m reading.  My opinion.  Does that mean you won’t enjoy the book, who knows?  If it sounds interesting to you pick it up and give it a try.

 

1-star review – This book has poor grammar, bad spelling, poor character development, etc.  At least once while reading, I scratch my head and think WTF?  The plot has too many holes and I just can’t.

2-Star Review –  I enjoyed a few aspects of your book, but for the most part the book was a wash for me.  Yes, I championed through it, hoping it would eventually get better.  This book still has grammar issues, that should have been caught by an editor/beta reader/ARC reader.  I might have skimmed part of the book, due to redundancy or boredom.

3-Star Review – I liked your book.  I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either.  There might have been some minor issues with the book.  All in all, it was a good solid book.   A 3-star review is a GOOD review, I enjoyed your book.

4-Star Review –   Your book hooked me right from the beginning.  It’s has a good reading pace, good character development.  I will recommend this book to others.  However, in a week will I remember this book?  Probably not.  I won’t reread this book, but I still enjoyed it.

5-Star Review – Amazing book, that I will shout from the rooftops about!  Because I want other people to read it too!  The pace is good.  Great character development.  I      couldn’t put y our book down.  It hit me right in the feelings!  Yes, I will re-read this book over and over.

Feral by Sara Fields

43194933

He warned me what would happen if he lost control. I didn’t listen.

He told me to stay away from him, that if I got too close he would not be able to stop himself. He would pin me down and take me so fiercely my throat would be sore from screaming before he finished wringing one savage, desperate climax after another from my helpless, quivering body.

Part of me was terrified, but another part needed to know if he would truly throw me to the ground, mount me, and rut me like a wild animal, longer and harder than any human ever could.

Now, as the feral beast flips me over to claim me even more shamefully when I’ve already been used more thoroughly than I imagined possible, I wonder if I should have listened to him…

Publisher’s Note: Feral includes spankings and rough, intense sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.Excerpt

I whimpered, and he touched me again, sliding his thumb from the top of my cleft to my forbidden hole. The suction portion of his cock pumped once, then twice over top of my clit, leaving me panting and desperate for more. I felt the toll of my shame, but still, my body was responding to every last second of it. I wanted it and I needed more of it.

“Please,” I begged, unsure of exactly what I was asking for anymore.

The pace of this book is good. You are pulled into the story and kept moving right along with it. Never did I feel like it was moving to fast or that something was missing. Delicious in every sense. This is my first Sara Fields book, but NOT my last.
