Blurb: As the most notorious, sadistic drug lord on the west coast, I thrive on power and control. Valentina loathes me as much as I despise her. That doesn't stop me from kidnapping her, stealing her away for myself.
Over the years that have separated us, hatred has festered in my heart. The girl I once loved is all woman now, and she thinks she belongs to someone else.
Her defiance tempts and torments me, and I'll never tire of devising devious punishments to keep her in line. She can't escape my cruel touch and harsh discipline.
No one will take her from me. I'll kill anyone who tries.
Valentina was always meant to be mine. Nothing will stop me from possessing her, body and soul.
About Julia Sykes Julia Sykes is the USA Today bestselling author of the Impossible Series. She has always kept dark stories tucked away in her mind, so she was thrilled when she discovered that other people actually want to read them. Her books blend romance, suspense, and BDSM.
You can usually find Julia in Starbucks with a venti iced coffee clutched in her hand (two pumps of mocha, liberal half and half). If she's not in Starbucks, you will find her with a glass of prosecco in hand, probably reading Harry Potter. Again.

Drug lords battling over a woman can get very dark. In this case, Adrian has now returned to steal back Valentina. She is the beauty he fell in love with when she was fourteen and he was eighteen years old.
Only one big problem, she is now the wife of his father's enforcer - Hugo. There were no words to describe the level of depravity that man could unleash on his wife or anyone who crossed him. Now Adrian would have to protect and rescue Valentina to a safe territory where Hugo and his father could not reach her. Could this be possible?
This is a very dark and upsetting story. Please note this and decide how dark you want your books to be.
