The Dark Duet – C.J. Roberts ONE OF THE DARK DUET: Captive in the Dark

Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For twelve years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors and kidnap a beautiful girl to train her to be all that he once was.

Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb, though he demands to be called Master. Olivia is young, beautiful, naïve and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him.

The exciting, titillating, and action-filled conclusion to Captive in the Dark.

What is the price of redemption?

Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood.

The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it’s all coming to an end.

Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance?

Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?


I must warn you that these books contain very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, and graphic violence.  Think Fifty Shades meets the Liam Nielson film Taken.  The story is good, it is quite a taboo subject the author is writing about and the twist although predictable was well written.  There are some places where it gets a bit much and I think it will put many readers off.  And it could be compared to a Fifty Shades in many places – I think I liked these books better than FSOG mainly down to the quality of writing.  Although like FSOG I did find it slow and repetitive in places.  I’m going to rate these as a good read.  They’re worth a read as they are very unusual and not a subject I’ve read about before.
