Mia Francesabout this book: Sylvie Jenkins has fallen on hard times. She's lost her job, her apartment, and is down to her last can of peas. Desperate, she agrees to take a job with reclusive writer Connor Hudson at his isolated mountain retreat in upstate New York. Sylvie assumes he's a poser, a writer wannabe. She has no idea he's actually a bestselling author and billionaire entrepreneur. Their first encounter proves disastrous. He greets her in all his naked glory; and shocked, she faints dead away. Sylvie's convinced her employer is a pervert. But she can't leave…she has no money and no prospects. She needs the job. She'll just have to try to make the best of it.
Mr. Hudson is a dour, dominant, and demanding boss. He issues orders and expects her to obey them, but Sylvie has a rebellious streak and gives him a hard time. She doesn't like playing power games, especially not with him. She bristles at his condescending and demeaning attitude toward women in general and her in particular. As far as she's concerned, Connor Hudson, though male model handsome, is an ass.
Connor can't believe the cheek of this sassy little imp! He's used to women fawning all over him, begging to do his bidding. But his wealth and position doesn't impress or intimidate her. He finds her indifference toward him rather intriguing. Refreshing really. He's never known a woman who didn't welcome his advances…until Sylvie. She ignores him, when she isn't arguing, or cursing at him under her breath. This alpha male dom decides his feisty assistant needs taming. And he's just the man to do it. He's determined to make her obedient, respectful, and submissive. Sylvie succumbs and against her better judgement finds herself falling in love with Connor. But something's wrong. Connor says he can't love her. Not now! Not ever! Sylvie learns he has a disturbingly dark and frightening side. He's been keeping secrets from her. People who love him die...violently. Is this dom accursed or a cold-blooded killer?
This erotic romance murder mystery thriller is for adults only. TAKEN is the first book in the IN HIS KEEPING trilogy. It has a cliffhanger ending. The story continues in Book #2 BANISHED and concludes in BOOK #3 CLAIMED.
