Publisher's Summary

Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For 12 years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors and kidnap a beautiful girl to train her to be all that he once was.
Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb, though he demands to be called Master. Olivia is young, beautiful, naïve and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him.
WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, and graphic violence.

Dark, disturbing, perverse…but I loved it!

I really wanted to hate this book, but in the end I actually loved it. I wonder what that says about me as a reader/listener? The subject matter of this book was seriously disturbing and made me extremely uncomfortable. There were many times I had to put this one down and could not revisit it for several days. There is abduction, beatings, rape and overall humiliation of another human being. How could this possibly be a love story? Perhaps I’m de-sensitized or nothing really shocks me anymore. No matter the reason, the author really pulls this one off. She manages to make the reader care for the hero and heroine. And despite all the horrible things Caleb does to Livvie, I still wanted them to end up together.

This was a very dark listen but it was well worth my credit.

A twisted tale that I loved, loved, LOVED!!

This book makes you honestly feel horror, disgust, pity, anger, lust, shame, hatred, love...I promise all types of emotions. It's dark, twisted and disturbing on so many levels but still I just could NOT stop!! At times, I really hated some of the things that happened, but the story was so intensely addictive that I couldn't help but love, love, love it!!! Captive in the Dark starts off with two men planning revenge. Caleb & Rafiq both seek the death of one man by the name of Vladek Rostrovich. But first Caleb has to secure a slave. The only way to get close to Vladek would be to enter a virgin slave into the Flower sale in Pakistan. Caleb has to get a girl & train her in six weeks, then go across the ocean to Rafiq in the middle east. Caleb finds Olivia. Olivia is young, beautiful, naïve and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him...  I loved how honest she was with Caleb and how she would rebel against him. She had a true fighter spirit that could not beat out of her through the whole book. I won't give anything more away. You will just have to listen to this story without any expectations. I want to tell you how much I truly LOVED this story, and convince you all to buy this book.
