Madeleine Abducted by M.S. Willis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
She was meant to be his destruction…
A pawn played in a perilous game between father and son…
Yet, her strength was more than either man could imagine.
As Maddy learns to save herself…
She becomes the one thing that could set the son free.
Madeleine Clark was raised to become a concert cellist. Sheltered and naïve, she remains hidden behind her music, a protection from the world around her. On the night of her first solo performance, Maddy accepts the admiration of a stranger and finds herself captive in a cruel and twisted power struggle between a sadistic father and his son, Aaron.
Seemingly dangerous and uncaring, Aaron manages the business operations of his father’s estate. Wanting nothing to do with the slaves kept at the Estate, Aaron refuses to take part in the deeper depravities of his father. Despite his resistance, Aaron’s father ‘gifts’ him with a petite, brunette woman he can’t refuse.
A bond forged in conspiracy and deceit, Aaron struggles to save Maddy by teaching her to survive in the world in which he’d been raised. An unlikely union, Aaron soon learns that great strengths can exist within small packages, while Madeleine learns that love and light can exist in the darkest of places.

****Loved it..so different from what I've read before****
The storyline was Seductive, Mysterious & Sophisticated
Aaron is the Executioner and revels in the art of death he's been made into a killing Beast he sees himself as a Monster.
Madeleine is a Cellist who hides behind her music and has become a recluse afraid of what is out there avoiding the unknown.. She's everything Pure and is Beauty in itself.
This was like a Beauty and the Beast Tale!
His father was a man of power and due to drugs and sheer madness ruled his Estate with an iron fist and instills fear, He seemed to have tried everything to drag Aaron even further into his world of Crime, Hence kidnapping Madeleine!
Madeleine even though being the captive was able to set Aaron free of his demons and by doing so became strong and concurred hers as well.
Definitely not for the faint of hearts there was dubious consent, rape, abuse, murder and there were many parts where Aaron was bathed in blood and gore(his weapon of choice was a knife). He enjoyed the kill and found it so much more personal while looking in to his prey's eyes.. Luckily his mouse was able to see past his mask and with Maddy's submission they were able to get their HEA.
Now this was a stand-alone but I would love to know more of Xander and Jason!
