Dark desires…Deadly secrets…Devious deceptions…Nothing is exactly as it seems in INSIDIOUS, the new erotic thriller from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author ALEATHA ROMIG!
When a powerful man is willing to risk everything for his own satisfaction, only one woman can beat him at his own game: his wife. Or so she thinks…
“Let’s start with you calling me Stewart. Formalities seem unnecessary.”
Stewart Harrington is rich, gorgeous, and one of the most powerful men in Miami. He always gets what he wants. Anything is available to him for the right price.
Being the wife of a mogul comes with all the perks, but being Mrs. Stewart Harrington comes with a few special requirements. I’ve learned to keep a part of myself locked away as my husband watches me submit to his needs. But the more he demands of me, the more beguiled he becomes and that’s to my advantage. So I keep fulfilling his fantasies and following his rules because he doesn’t know that what he’s playing is really my game. And winning is everything, right?
INSIDIOUS is a stand-alone novel and the first Tales from the Dark Side title by ALEATHA ROMIG.
Wow, Aleatha Romig sure has come a long way since Consequences and she's really carved herself a niche in the dark erotic thriller genre. What Consequences started, INSIDIOUS will make permanent. I have no doubt that ARomig will become of the genre's go-to authors for dark and twisted tales, her love stories aren't for the faint of heart and her brand of HEA is provoking and argumentative even. So before you decide to try any of her books, leave any lighthearted expectations you may have because you won't get it, instead you'll find raw, blistering, and passion-filled affairs that may scar and/or scare you away. Be brave, be very brave! LOL
As Tales From The Dark Side is a new series, I know some of you might be curious on how it compares to Consequences. There are a few similarities: an infamous contract, an innocent girl caught in a web of lies and deceit, a trusted bodyguard, and a very unconventional story. It ends there though because for one thing, ARomig did NOT hold back here. Claire and Tony's story, for what it's worth, was somewhat filtered, Viktoria Conway-Harrington crossed a lot of lines and her story had my jaw dropping on the floor constantly in disbelief, revulsion, and admiration. Also the sex scenes were very explicit and sometimes disturbing as expected since INSIDIOUS is a dark tale. As for the romance? Let's just say that ARomig's latest novel started as a fairy tale and ended a nightmare.
The bad news is, INSIDIOUS is one of those books where you can't really break down in small pieces because inasmuch as it's a well-knitted story, one peep will unravel (spoil) the whole thing and trust me, you don't want that. It's gripping from beginning to end so you'll find yourself furiously turning the pages, thirsting to find out more about Viktoria's secrets and what made her so broken and slightly deranged. And once those were revealed, you'll be astounded but its immensity, disgusted by its perversity, empathetic to her plight, and maybe even admire Viktoria's gumption and cleverness in the end. It's one of those fantastical stories we commonly see on TV or movies either as fiction, stranger still in real life. But stranger things have been reported so I won't be surprised if art imitated life in this case.
So forget fluff and bubble gum romance and go explore the dark side with INSIDIOUS. Take a break from the Prince Charmings, damsels in distress, and fairy tale endings, it's Halloween after all so why not treat yourself to something different for a change?
