Sinister Desires Release Day Blog Hop & Reviews

Tired of hearts & flowers? Does the sight of teddy bears make you want to throw up in your mouth? Like your erotica as dark as your soul and just as twisted? Indulge your SINISTER DESIRES with these ten delectable tales of forbidden fancy from previously banned authors.


Beneath the Burn
~ Pam Godwin ~
Amid corruption and power, rock stars and drugs, Jay and Charlee must face their worst fears. When the battle is over, what will be left...Beneath The Burn.

Captive in the Dark
~ CJ Roberts ~
This New York Times Bestseller is the story of a young woman kidnapped and held hostage by a human trafficker out for revenge. Gritty, violent, and not for the faint of heart. 18+

~ Ker Dukey ~
Brother. Detective. Contract Killer. Blake is all three and the last thing he wants is...EMPATHY.

~ Jaden Wilkes ~
A handsome and charming sociopath meets his match in a femme fatale intent on destroying him from the inside out.

The Decimation of Mae
~ D.H. Sidebottom ~
He called me his lamb. He was the shepherd. As Master, he demanded my mind and surrender and used it to shatter my heart. His violence broke my spirit. His hatred slayed my soul. But it was his kind and gentle side that took my life? Literally.

Joseph Fallen
~ M.S. Willis ~
There is a fine line between genius and madness, love and hate, right and wrong. Discover how Joseph falls from light into the pitch black depths of ultimate darkness.

~ Kimber S. Dawn ~
Roman is a man of little words and lesser morals. Roman has never felt emotions like guilt, shame, or remorse. How do I know all of this? Because, my name is Heather Mackenzie and I've been number thirteen for a lot longer than I ever intended to be.

~ Francette Phal ~
All Lacey wants for herself is a better life. And she does all she can to work towards that goal. But one mistake brings her world to a crashing halt, redirecting her on the path to utter destruction. But it's a destruction she finds herself craving beneath the brutal hands of serial killer Knox Bishop.

~ Ker Dukey & D.H. Sidebottom  ~
I am, Star, and just like with some stars in the sky, the light you see is an echo, a facade, I am already gone. I am a no one. Especially to him. To him I am the dark in his desires, the corrupt in his depravity. The sin in his immorality.

Her Master's Courtesan
~ Lily White ~
He does not want love or kindness. He only wants complete submission. Erotic Horror.

Her Master’s Courtesan

Alright, I've had a few days to think this over and am now ready to write up my thoughts on this story.

Aiden is a "Master"...he's not a Master in the BDSM sense. He's a heartless, soulless, sadistic slave trainer. He plucks women from their regular, everyday lives and trains them to be courtesans. I found NO redeeming characteristics in him, but for some reason I still liked him. (What does that say about me?)

This is NOT a romance story. This is NOT fluffy, there is no love, there is NO sweetness.
This is a dark, gritty, abusive tale of Aiden's adventure in breaking Rebecca.
The adventure starts from the 1st page and doesn't end until the very last chapter.

Rebecca turned out to be more of a "project" than Master was expecting, and that is really where the story is. I'm not delving into the details, as you'll need to read it yourself...if you dare.


3.5 stars
I finished this book a couple of days ago, and have been "absorbing" the story in an attempt to categorize my feelings to be able to present them in some sense of order. (I'm not sure that helped).
See, I have mixed feelings on everything. I am a lover of dark reads, and this story satisfies most of my yearnings but still left me "wanting."
Roman is a billionaire, Alpha male with a side of crazy...more than a "side" of – he is a complete sociopath who regularly "feeds" his monster.
His sadistic tendencies turn into murderous rage, he possesses no need to feel love or empathy. At this point, he's left 12 women in his wake – and he's proud of who he is.

For a little while.

Meet Heather Mackenzie. She's a daughter, sister, and cop. She's assigned to the investigation of Roman Payne that her deceased father had started. The closer she gets to Roman, the more attraction she feels. Thus begins our "quasi" romance aspect of the story.

Then everything goes to hell. The strong heroine becomes beaten.
Roman starts flip-flopping.
The ENTIRE story seems to do a 180, and I'm left seriously confused.

I wanted to enjoy this, I really did, but the story just fell apart and the characters didn't hold up.
I can't characterize this as a romance story, it's not really erotica (I'm not sure if any scenes were really consensual), so I will classify this as dark and leave it at that.
