Madeleine, a cellist, she lives to play music. Music is the shield she uses to protect herself from the world around her. With music she can find perfection.
Until one night she is taken from the life she knows. Thrown into a a life of slavery, not knowing if her life might be over in the next minute. She does the only thing she can do, she submits and surrenders to her new life, because that is the only way to stay alive.
Aaron, a man who has only ever know the silver light of a blade and the iron fist of the man who is his father. Everyday is a struggle to resist the darkness his father tries to force upon him. But sometimes he has to succumb to the darkness that wants to take him over in order to survive.
A story about the struggle between good and evil, but sometime the both forces live inside us. A mans struggle to stay good. And a woman, once weak strengthened by her weakness.
This book was deliciously dark, the author was bold and did not shy away from a subject we might find too dark. The characters were lewd, depraved and blood thirsty, but because of that the story was easy to believe. The ending wasn't pretty, no pink bows here to make your heart flutter, it was dark it was gritty and it suited the entire story.
This one is definitely for the dark romance lovers, the hero is not glossed over, he is a man who is flawed. I liked the heroine, she found strength in surrender and did it with dignity! Kicking and screaming isn't always the smartest thing to do, although we'd love to think so.
I approve :)

1 Where did you get the inspiration to write Madeleine Abducted from?
My inspiration for Madeleine Abducted came from my love for both paranormal, fantasy and dark reads. Madeleine Abducted came to me in bits and pieces. The setting and characters developed first and the story built itself from there. Each book in the series will be a captive story, but for different reasons. Books 1 through 4 are already mapped out in my head, I just need to type them. ;-)
2 Did you always want to be a writer?
I haven't always wanted to be a writer, however I have an overactive imagination that needed an outlet. I'm not even sure I consider myself a writer now. I like to think of myself as a storyteller. It's like a movie is playing in my head and I'm simply transcribing what I see. To a certain extent the characters become real and write the book themselves. Sometimes I'm even taken by surprise by events in a book or how it ends.
3 What genre of books do you like to read?
I read many different genres including contemporary and classic literature. If I had to choose favorites, they would be dark romance, urban fantasy, and paranormal.
4 Who comes to mind when you think of Aaron or Xander and why?
Now THAT is a hard question. There are personality traits for both of them that I adore. I love Aaron's strength and his emotional control. When it comes to Xander, I love his sarcasm and his sensitivity. However, there are other sides to Xander that will come out in Hope Restrained. Making a choice between them is too hard. Can't I just have them both? ;-) LOL.
