The Acquisition has ruled my life, ruled my every waking moment since Sinclair Vinemont first showed up at my house offering an infernal bargain to save my father’s life. Now I know the stakes. The charade is at an end, and Sinclair has far more to lose than I ever did.
But this knowledge hasn’t strengthened me. Instead, each revelation breaks me down until nothing is left but my fight and my rage. As I struggle to survive, only one question remains. How far will I go to save those I love and burn the Acquisition to the ground?
Full disclosure: This book is a DARK romance with elements of BDSM, slavery, violence, and super-hot sex. It is the last of the Acquisition trilogy, no cliffhanger. If you're good with these caveats, enjoy!
Stella Rousseau is determined to do everything possible to destroy the Acquisition and everyone involved with it. This means that she is going to have to be stronger and faster than she ever thought she could be – and that includes guarding her heart from the only man who has the power to shatter her completely – Sinclair Vinemont.
Her blood was honey on my tongue, and her pussy heaven on my cock. I was never free, not until I was here with her. Just the two of us. Just her locked in a cage with the beast who lived inside me. She was unafraid. Even from the start, from the moment I’d seen her, she had been a piece of steel that I railed on, beat, and tried to break. She would never break. Instead, I’d shattered against her like glass against a stone
Sin knows he has to win the Acquisition or his family will suffer dire consequences. He’s going to keep his eye on the prize even if it makes him do things that will certainly damn his soul. And Stella is his only salvation.
Through all of the torture, lies and pain – her trust in him never waivers. But when his demons and his doubts come raging back, will they destroy the players instead of the deadly game?
He leaned in and kissed me with a gentleness I didn’t know he possessed. He rested his forehead against mine. “You are everything. If I could run with you, I would.” He closed his eyes, as if thinking through the possibility again. When he opened them, they were stark. “We can’t. They’ll find us, hurt us, and kill Teddy for spite.”
Celia Aaron really pulls out all of the stops in Sovereign. She cleverly takes her Acquisition series to a whole new level of dark! The characters are dynamic and the story moves at a blistering pace in unexpected directions for a literary punch to the gut.
It’s poetic in its viciousness and raw in its sensuality – and absolutely decadent…
Exclusive Excerpt -
When I relaxed back onto the bed, he crawled on top of me and ran his fingers around my lips. I sucked them, licking myself off him before he kissed me and shared the taste. He rested his weight on his elbows, careful not to crush me. I didn’t want careful or tentative. I wanted Sin.
