Abducted at eighteen. Held captive for 15 months.
It reads like one of those headlines. And yes, I did it. I stole her. Nora, with her long
dark hair and silky skin. She’s my weakness, my obsession.
I’m not a good man. I never pretended to be one. She can love me, but she can’t change me.
I can, however, change her.
My name is Julian Esguerra, and Nora is mine to keep.
Keep Me is the sequel to Twist Me, told from Nora & Julian’s POV.
“Are you all right?” There is a concerned expression on Nora’s face as she reaches
up to touch the area above my left ear. Her slender fingers are gentle on my scalp.
“Does it still hurt?”
Her touch sends pleasure streaking down my spine. I want this from her. I want
her to care about my well-being. I want her to love me even though I stole her
freedom—even though, by all rights, she should hate me.
I have no illusions about myself. I’m one of those men they show on the news—the
ones that everyone fears and despises. I took a young woman because I wanted her
and for no other reason.
I took her and I made her mine.
I make no excuses for my actions. I feel no guilt either. I wanted Nora, and now she’s
here with me, looking at me like I’m the most important person in her world.
And I am. I am exactly what she needs now . . . what she craves. I will give her
everything, and I will take everything from her in return. Her body, her mind, her
devotion—I want it all. I want her pain and her pleasure, her fear and her joy.
I want to be her entire life.
“No, it’s fine,” I say in response to her earlier question. “It’s almost healed.”
She pulls her fingers away, and I catch her hand, not ready to forego the pleasure
of her touch. Her hand is slim and delicate in my grasp, her skin soft and warm.
She tries to tug it away reflexively, but I don’t let her, my fingers tightening around
her small palm. Her strength is insignificant compared to mine; she can’t make me
release her unless I choose to let her go.
She doesn’t really want me to let her go, anyway. I can feel the excitement rising
within her, and my body hardens, a dark hunger awakening within me again.
Reaching across the table, I slowly and purposefully unbuckle her safety belt.
Then I stand up, still holding her hand, and lead her to the bedroom at the back of
