Monsters come in many forms.
Some want shiny new toys to play withβ€”others want blood.
Mona Walters dreams of adventure, of a world beyond the shoreline she’s confined to. She yearns for vibrancy in her dull, mundane existence, but succumbs to the bleakness.
Until the necklace her sister wore the night she was brutally murdered shows up on her door wrapped in a neat bow, fueling her to run away and seek out the person responsible for stealing her sister’s life.
Mona wished for moreβ€”for color in her gray world.
What she didn’t realize was just how much more she would get.
And that the world outside her own was soaked in redβ€”blood red.
The world she dreamed of is made of nightmares.
A rich, influential world of two brothersβ€”and once they have her in their sights, they plan to keep her there.
Her father kept her secluded for a reason.
Be careful what you wish for.
There’s a thief out there, and he’s coming for Mona’s heart.

 

 

Cold burrows into my marrow. My self-preservation to seek out warmth has my feet inching toward a roaring fire in a grand room lavished with furniture and rugs. This place is huge, like nothing I’ve ever seen before. We live a minimal life with only the true essentials. Everything else is considered an indulgence, and that’s sinful. Apparently.Β 

A graze scorching with pain to my knee makes me wince, the torn material of my dress rubbing against the broken skin. β€œHello?” I call out, inching closer and closer to the roaring orange glow of the fire. Shadows dance down the walls as footfalls sound just outside the room I was deposited inside by the man who said he was security.Β 

β€œLook what the tide washed in,” a deep rumble booms across the room.Β 

My hand wraps around my waist to ease the nerves.Β 

β€œThis is private property. Do you want to tell me what it is you’re doing docking here?” The voice steps into the light, stealing my breath.Β 

He looks like a man from the stories Clara used to tell me at night when I couldn’t sleep. Dark probing eyes seek me out, making a quiver of excitement and fear ripple through my body. Powerful arms fold across a broad chest covered in clothes I’m not used to: formal wear, a suit.Β 

He has a confidence about him that commands the space he’s dominating with his size. He’s taller than me by a comfortable foot and a half. As he edges closer, the urge to run away sends a rush of energy to my legs. β€œDo you speak?” He narrows his dark orbs on me, bringing a hand up to loosen a tie around his neck.Β 

Moving toward a table set out with bottles full of liquids, he asks, β€œDrink?”

The dryness of my throat aches. A longing to quench a thirst I hadn’t realized I had has me nodding and pushing a meek, β€œYes, please,” past my lips.Β 

The quirk of his lips doesn’t go unnoticed as he pours amber liquid into two glasses and hands me one. His fingers brush mine as I accept the offering, sending a spark over my skin. My eyes fixate on the contents of the glass. There are two mouthfuls at most. Maybe he can’t spare more. I smile a thank you and lift the glass, taking a sip.Β 

A harsh burn explodes over my tongue, making me gag. β€œOh God, what is that?” I choke out, holding the glass out to give it back to him. A harsh laugh barks from his lips, making my stomach dip.Β 

β€œYou’re one of them, aren’t you?” He steps toward me, closing in around me like a predator would prey. I shuffle back, bumping my hip against a couch.Β 

β€œOne of who?” I frown.Β 

β€œCult Island.” He scoffs, snatching the glass from me and throwing the contents into the fire. It hisses and snaps, flames jumping out in retaliation. β€œI should have guessed by what you’re wearing.” He smirks, his eyes lazily roaming down my body, making a blush bloom on my cheeks.

Enticing Journey REVIEW Label blog 1.21.18

Lita T’s Review:Β  5 STARS

Heart Thief (Sinister Fairy Tales series) by Ker Dukey is a story about Mona. She lives on a secluded island where her father is the head of a religious cult. Always skirting the rules Mona and her sister Clara want out of their drab, rigid existence. When Clara leaves Mona, Mona’s world is turned upside down. Years later when Clara is found dead with her heart cut out Mona is on a mission. Determined to get off the island and discover who killed her sister, Mona leaves the island and embarks on a very dangerous journey. The only clue she has is to seek out the Ward brothers. This story is not loosely based on a child’s fairy tale like the other books in the series but a gritty story of cults, murder, secrets and lies. And in true Ker fashion this is a tale that is sick, dark and twisted with doses of kinky sex. I truly enjoyed this story. Didn’t want to put this story down. Couldn’t wait to get to the end and the ending was a true surprise. Mona was a strong willed young girl who grew stronger and more adventurous as she got older. She knew her own mind and didn’t let anything deter her from her mission, not her father or her betrothed. Of course the Ward brothers didn’t disappoint in looks, sex appeal and a touch of deviousness. 5 stars for me
