It was the biggest day of my life. I know most people say that about something joyous; a graduation, a wedding ceremony, the birth of their first child. My situation was a little different. Sure, it was my eighteenth birthday, but it was also the day that I was sold. Sold to a man with hair like a crown of gold and eyes blacker than the darkest pits of Hell. He bought me to own me, to control me, and to use me as a means to an end. I was his tool and his weapon.And through it all, somehow, I also became his salvation.

A life of poverty in a mafia run village of Naples, Italy; an 18 year old Cosima Lombardi is sold into sexual slavery to pay off her father’s debts.

As the saying goes no good deed goes unpunished. And in Cosima’s case, the love for her family, her beauty nor her inner strength can save her from Alexander Davenport. As Cosima tries to adjust to her new reality, there is no preparation for a master that wants to claim more then her body.

“To own this body is enough,” he growled. “For now.” Then he leaned forward, his thick lashes fluttering closed as he nipped my chin firmly with his teeth and trailed his tongue along the path of a fallen tear over my cheek. His breath fanned over my cheek, his lips against my temple, and his hand even tighter around my neck as he whispered, “But one day, it won’t be, and I’ll come for it all. Your mind, your spirit, and your innocent heart.”

Enthralled is the first book in The Enslaved Duet and it was dark, gritty, depraved and disturbingly arousing. Even though this book feels so wrong while you’re reading it, you can’t help but feel as if you’ve consumed an aphrodisiac….
Although this story centres around Alexander breaking down Cosima’s spirit and reducing her to sexual servitude, you can’t overlook the undertones of his lust and admiration for her.

“Love me or hate me if you will. Either way, I will always be on your mind,” he reminded me. “Now, slave, kneel for me.”

As the story unravels, all is not what it seems and you will come to love (maybe) Alexander Davenport in all his disciplinary glory. I look forward to the continuation of their story in Enamoured.
