Once a sexual prisoner of abusive ancient vampire Sweet Dove who destroyed his family as well; Brogan lives for one thing: killing his former tormentor. To achieve his obsession, for years Brogan worked diligently on obtaining full membership status in the Starlin Group vampire club whose participants enslave humans.
At Brigg’s Ocean Club in Newport Beach, Brogan meets Angelica. He finds himself distracted by their attraction although he brutally pretends otherwise. She is hurt by his rejection of her while he feels relieved she left the dangerous for human scene. Brogan’s assessment proves wrong when he sees Angelica on the auction block slated for bondage. His brain knows he needs to ignore her before she devastates his life goal, but his heart refuses to heed his head; Brogan places the winning bid. This leaves him with a shaky mission at best, an angry nasty vampiric enemy and a woman he may be in love with who loathes him as a despised slaver.
The latest Men in Chains romantic fantasy is a heated BDSM thriller. Though some transitions feel off-kilter and this entry has nothing to do with the Daniel and his sons’ trilogy (see Unchained, Chains Of Darkness and Born In Chains) except for being in the awesome Roane world, series fans will relish the adventures of Brogan and Angelica.
