The exciting, titillating, and action-filled conclusion to Captive in the Dark.

What is the price of redemption?

Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood.

The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it’s all coming to an end.

Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance?

Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?

It seemed to Caleb, the nature of human beings revolved around one empirical truth: we want what we cannot have. For Eve, it was the fruit of the forbidden tree. For Caleb, it was Livvie.

Well, hi! I'm fresh from finishing up this book in Kindle format. I finished the first one and KNEW I had to dive into this second book with as much or more fervor than before since this book was much longer and way more involved. I don't really know if I can really put down into words exactly how this small series made me feel, but I have to say that Roberts is completely and utterly amazing. Her writing style is phenomenal. I'm not sure if I have a different opinion of this book because I've actually READ it rather than listening to it on audiobook (it's not available in audio format apparently... trust me, I looked!) but this book completely and totally gripped me. I can't tell you how day after day I literally CRAVED reading this book, through grumbling stomach- because I didn't want to get up and get myself something to eat, through hubby's days off work- he had to sit there and watch me read, attempting to "spend time with me" lol! and my poor kids- good lord, they've been neglected! How did I ever manage to even get them to school, put them to bed??? Dishes are pilled up in my sink, laundry is everywhere... the house is disheveled and I thought about NOTHING but the plot and book while I wasn't reading!!!! This story encompassed my whole being! LOL! I sincerely hope it grips others in the same fashion, or I will be left feeling like a complete and utter freak! *snicker* Either way, part of me sighed in relief, and is STILL sighing, that this story is over and told... I feel emotionally exhausted and happy to be "back to my old self again"!! I loved every single thing about this book, and I don't want to put any spoilers down here, because I want anyone reading this to go buy this book and experience it for yourselves and more importantly, I want you all to love it as much as I did!!! Be prepared to be taken on a serious journey into the darkest parts of your psyche though, have a tough skin and an open mind too! And above all- I hope you love this book as much as I did! :) (and you MUST read book 1 before you read book 2!!! Book one is called Captive in the Dark!)

I can't even give this book a star rating... it went BEYOND any rating system I know of!!! Just go read the first and second book... now! :P

I've been halfheartedly listening to:
Beyond the Highland Mist (Highlander, #1)
...and I hope to be able to HEAR the book now, with an open mind and carefree heart after this completely insane series... so I will go back to my paranormal loving self and attempt to find any pleasure in any other book AFTER Seduced in the Dark. LOL! :)
