All I can say is WELL DONE, Candace Wondrak. As a dark romance reader, I am embarrassed to say I've waited this long to read your books. Cruel Control is the perfect combination of intense uncomfortableness and captivating arousal. How Candace makes deplorable look sexy is a special talent. The story follows Juliet who is now forced into a life that Markus fully controls. It is a story about revenge, lust, violence and ultimately succumbing to desires. I honestly devoured this story in one sitting. I was intrigued by EVERY character and my heart had a soft spot for Will & Jaxson. They were infatuated with Juliet "Was it wrong of me to want her so badly?" and it made their characters seem human. Even Markus made me weak in the knees, for very different reasons. He was as hot as he was insanely controlling "Mine to break, mine to control, mine to do whatever the fuck I want with..." UGH, that man knows what he wants and enjoys every second of taking it. I found this story insanely addicting and I absolutely cannot wait for more!

His hand was large; it wrapped around the back of my neck easily, and the way he held onto it was almost possessive. The ends of his lips were quirked downward in a frown, and Markus spoke, “If I were you, I would be careful, Juliet. When you surround yourself with animals, sooner or later they’re bound to take a bite.”

“Juliet,” he whispered my name as if it was a prayer, a name he’d never tasted on his lips before. I wasn’t sure whether I hated the way he said it or if I liked it and wanted to hear him say it again.

“I’m not scared of you, Markus.” My name on her tongue was damn near the best sound I’d ever heard, and I swore I felt everything in me tighten as a result. My soul, my heart, my cock.

“Such a pretty mouth,” he murmured. “I hope I’ll get to put it to good use.”

The monster in me wanted an angel. A virtuous, pure angel it could protect and claim, taint and cage.

From The Publisher


Sometimes the worst monsters in the world are the ones we let close.

Daddy keeps me locked away. For my own good, he says. The world is a dark and terrible place, full of people who will take advantage of you, hurt you… maybe even kill you. I don’t know what he does, only that his clients are of the rich variety.

But one day he doesn’t come home, and I wake to find a stranger in my room.

Whisked away, stolen to a house on the outskirts of Midpark, I’m no more than a pawn, something the devil himself can control. Daddy crossed the devil, and now I’m to pay for his sins.

What is the devil’s name, you ask?

Markus Scott. And Markus will not stop until I fall in line.

This innocence of mine has no place in a hell like this.

**The Desecration of Innocence series will contain triggers. Violence and gore, among other things. This is the first book in a RH/Why Choose series, meaning our girl will not have to choose. The men in this series are not heroes, so if you need that in your romance, turn back now. You’ve been warned. Markus doesn’t play nice.**


I read. I create. I get in trouble. That is me in a nutshell. I live in a snarky, artistic, eclectic world where BDSM and Dark Erotica are high on my reading list. I yearn for a really raw, gritty book where the lead guy/girl is more like a villain and I am left completely mindf*cked. The more the usual lines of morality are blurred, the better. I am an Alice in Wonderland Freak, an Edgar Allan Poe lover and an ocean addicted mermaid. I like originality when it comes to my books. The dirtier, the better. I am here to Discover, Share and Obsess. Join me, will you?
