Magnate by Celia Aaron
Publication date: January 19th 2016
Genres: Erotica, Romance
Lucius Vinemont has spirited me away to a world of sugar cane and sun. There is nothing he cannot give me on his lavish Cuban plantation. Each gift seduces me, each touch seals my fate. There is no more talk of depraved competitions or his older brother – the one who’d stolen me, claimed me, and made me feel things I never should have. Even as Lucius works to make me forget Sinclair, my thoughts stray back to him, to the dark blue eyes that haunt my sweetest dreams and bitterest nightmares. Just like every dream, this one must end. Christmas will soon be here, and with it, the second trial of the Acquisition.
Of Counsellor (Acquisition #1) and Magnate (Acquisition #2) -
Sinclair Vinemont knew the second that he laid eyes on Stella that she would be his Acquisition. He is now in position to lead his family to take control of a very old and very secret group made up of only the most powerful families – and he’s going to use her to claim the crown.
“In the heart of every man is a darkness. Primal. Instinctive. At its most basic, it’s a desirous nature— one that covets, demands, takes. Most men brick it up behind a wall of self-control. They invest time and effort in maintaining the separation. These men, good men, control the darkness until it withers away and becomes nothing more than a shadow haunting their innermost thoughts. Something easily forgotten, dismissed, erased. I've never been a good man. My darkness is neither restrained nor buried. It lives right at the surface. The only thing that hides it is my mask.”
Just when Stella Rousseau thinks that her life couldn’t get any worse – it does. In order to save her father from prison and her family from shame, she agrees to belong to Sinclair Vinemont for the term of one year. She never could have imagined what that would entail.
She will have to endure untold pain and humiliation at his hands, but the spark between them cannot be denied.
The more that she learns about the Vinemont brothers, the more that she loses her fight to hate them. Lucius with all of his untamed bravado. Teddy with his intelligent and wild heart. And Sinclair with his singular drive and passion for Stella that threatens to devastate everything.
Passed between brothers and transported between countries, the stakes are raised to an epic height and her savior is one who could hurt her the most.
“Was strength always born of fire, of torment? I nodded at the silent question. I would have to suffer to survive. But I would come out the other side. And when I did, I would burn the entire Acquisition to the ground.”
Both are now pawns in a powerful game of lust, life and death. Will they both survive to claim victory or are they destined to become another wicked nightmare for the ages?
The first two books in Celia’s Acquisition series are nothing short of addictive! She has masterfully crafted an iron-willed heroine in Stella and redefined the “anti-hero” in Sinclair.
This is not a tale for the faint of heart. Love and hate combine to make the most intoxicating elixir and I can’t wait for the final installment to get another fix…

“Off.” He growled and gripped one side, yanking the shirt apart, buttons bouncing off the hardwood floors as he pulled the shirt roughly down my arms and tossed it.
