Imposible (Dual POV Edition) by Julia Sykes
A new 2016 Dual POV edition of Impossible

Synopsis

Claudia…
My life was irrevocably changed that night; the night I was taken. I saved a man’s life, but at what cost to myself? Can I convince him to save me in return?

I hate him for what he’s done to me. But the longer I’m trapped with him, the harder it is to cling to that hatred. He is an enigma of a man, one who is shockingly arrogant, sweetly contrite, and frighteningly aggressive by turns. And the pain in his eyes is a mirror for my own.

The longer I remain in his grip, the more confused I become.

Is my freedom worth betraying him?

Sean…
My captive is beautiful, cunning, and defiant. The alluring combination pleases the monster in me. I want to conquer that defiance and take possession of her beauty. I crave to claim her innocence and keep it for myself.

But the man I am knows nothing could be more wrong.

I have to decide which is stronger: the monster or the man? Either way, one thing’s for certain. I’m never letting her go.

She rounded on me, storm clouds in her eyes.  “What other choice did you give me?” she hissed.  “Did you really expect me to stay here like a good girl?  To allow you to keep me as your pet forever?”

For once, I didn’t find her anger remotely cute.  Her words hit too close to home.  That was exactly what I wanted to do with her.  That was what I was going to do with her.  There were no other options.

“I don’t have a choice here, Claudia,” I ground out, willing her to understand that her demands that I release her were completely irrational and futile.

“Yes, you do!” she insisted hotly, half-shouting.  “And you’re making the wrong one.”

Her eyes shone with tears again as she glared up at me, and she swiped at them angrily.  When her knuckles raked over her bruised cheek, she winced.

I reached out automatically, my fingers encircling her slim wrist as I pulled her hand away from her face.  She wasn’t allowed to cause herself pain.

The indignant fury in her eyes melted, and she shivered slightly in response to my domineering touch.  The little furrow between her brows betrayed her confusion at her reaction to me.

“Here,” I said softly.  “Let me.”

I pressed my advantage, exploiting her moment of weakness.  Carefully, I brushed away the wetness on her cheeks.  It was time to finish what we had started that afternoon.  I touched my hand to the side of her face, my fingers curving to match the line of her cheek, my thumb hooking below her jaw.  Although my touch barely brushed her skin, she went utterly still, trapped by my power over her just as effectively as she would be by the restraints that I craved to use on her.

Her gaze dropped from my eyes to my lips, and her tongue darted out to wet her own.  The sight of her surrender to her desires was intensely gratifying, and a knowing, triumphant smile spread across my face.  I leaned into her slowly, building her anticipation.  Her pupils dilated and her breath quickened; she enjoyed the way I was toying with her.  By the time I allowed her lips to touch mine, she would be quivering from her need.

Her eyes flashed, defiance replacing the soft submission that had filled them. To my astonishment, her hand closed firmly around the back of my neck, and she pulled herself up into me, closing the distance between us.  She crushed her lips to mine, and shock made me still beneath her.

Her eagerness to kiss me was undeniably satisfying, but her little show of rebelliousness wouldn’t be tolerated.  My tender fingers left her cheek to tangle in her hair at the nape of her neck.  The feel of the silken strands wrapped around my fist made blood pulse to my cock.  I tugged sharply, administering a little jolt of pain to reinforce my control.  Her head dropped back and her lips parted for me.  I swallowed her small, shocked gasp, savoring it.

I took her lips mercilessly, demonstrating that she would only be rewarded with my touch if she played by my rules.  My tongue delved into her hot mouth.  Her attempts to cling on to some control as her tongue tangled with mine amused me.  I indulged her for a few seconds before pushing her back against the wall, my hand in her hair protecting her head from hitting the tiles.  She gasped at the sudden coolness of them touching her skin, and I took advantage, fucking her open mouth with my tongue, exploring every inch of her.

I released her hair so I could grasp her wrist. I pulled her arms up and pinned her wrists against the wall on either side of her head.  Her pleasurable shudder spurred me on, and my cock hardened as she melted for me, her body turning softly compliant.  All resistance left her as I ravaged her mouth.

This was how she was meant to be; she was utterly perfect in her submission to me.  It wasn’t lost on me that the way I trapped her against the wall mirrored the way her attacker had restrained her.  I pinned her in that position in a show of ownership.  I was meant to possess her body like this and no one else.  And the way she responded to my dominance so beautifully confirmed my claim.

My lips curved triumphantly against hers when she pressed her hot pussy against my thigh, grinding against me.  Her soft whine pleaded with me to grant her the release she so desperately needed.  I was fiercely tempted to free my cock from my pants, shove her dress up over her hips, and drive into her heat.

But I didn’t want our first time to be a frenzied fuck against the bathroom wall.  I was going to take my time claiming her, branding every inch of her beautiful body with my touch until she was reduced to a desperate, whimpering mess.  Only then would I reward her with my cock, and the feeling of her pussy rippling around me as she came again and again would bring me the perfect pleasure that she had denied me for so long.

Excerpt

“Morning, sweetheart.”

I gasped and sat bolt upright. “I was supposed to stay with Rose last night!” I exclaimed. “It’s bad luck for you to see me before the wedding.”

His fingers tangled in my hair, and he tugged me back down beside him. He caressed my cheek with his free hand, and his silver eyes looked into my soul.

“You won’t have bad luck,” he declared. “I won’t fucking allow it. I’m going to see to it that you’re blissfully happy for the rest of your life. Our lives. I’m always going to take care of you.”

I leaned into his touch. “I know. I’m going to take care of you, too, Master.”

He grinned. “That’s my good girl.”

His lips lowered to mine, and he initiated a long, sweet kiss. He started taking my mouth with greater hunger, nipping at my lower lip before sweeping his tongue inside to claim mine. He didn’t release me until I was gasping against him, craving him more than the air I breathed.

He kissed his way down my neck and caught my wrists in his big hands, pulling my arms over my head and pinning them against the pillows.

“Stay,” he murmured against my skin.

He didn’t need a verbal response. My obedience to him was unquestioning, because I trusted him to never harm me in any way.

Even when he gave me pain, it brought me pleasure.
But pain wasn’t what he had in mind this morning.

He released my wrists, and his palms skimmed down my arms, moving farther down my body until his hands gripped my hips. His tongue trailed a hot line between my breasts as he dipped his head toward my pussy. Liquid heat flooded my core, and my clit pulsed in need.

“Wait,” I panted. “We don’t have time for this. I have to get to the hotel. Rose will be there to help me get ready.”

“Rose can wait,” he half-growled.

“But I’ll be late for the ceremony,” I protested breathlessly.

“Then everyone can fucking wait.”

He settled between my legs, his long fingers curling into my upper thighs to hold me open for him. For agonizing seconds, he merely studied me, a cocky smile twisting his lips as he watched my growing wetness coat my lower lips.

Instinct urged me to rock my hips toward him, to twine my fingers in his thick black hair and pull him against me.

I knew better than that. Master wouldn’t touch my pussy until he was ready. And right now, he was enjoying watching me struggle against my lustful actions. Resolutely, I kept my arms above my head and my hips steady.

He hummed his approval and finally lowered himself. His morning stubble teased across my skin as he rubbed his cheek against my thighs. I shivered as my inner muscles contracted, my sex swelling with need.

His tongue traced the line of my pussy lips, dipping between them to taste me. His satisfied growl vibrated against my sensitive flesh, and I moaned out my pleasure. He pressed a whisper-soft kiss to my clit, and I whimpered at the light contact. I was ready to come apart at the slightest touch. My orgasm was so close…

He pulled away and settled his powerful body atop mine, denying me.

“Master!” I whined, writhing beneath him. “Please…”

His teeth flashed in a wicked grin. “I want you to be all hot and needy for our wedding night. I have something special planned for you.” He trailed his fingers over my heated cheek. “My blushing bride.”

The Impossible Series by Julia Sykes

Synopsis

Books 1-7 in the USA Today Bestselling Impossible Series, available in one collection for a limited time!

*7 Books, 1700 pages, 1600+ Five-Star Ratings*

Impossible

My life was irrevocably changed that night; the night I was taken. I saved a man’s life, but at what cost to myself? Can I convince him to save me in return?

I hate him for what he’s done to me. But the longer I’m trapped with him, the harder it is to cling to that hatred. He is an enigma of a man, one who is shockingly arrogant, sweetly contrite, and frighteningly aggressive by turns. And the pain in his eyes is a mirror for my own.

The longer I remain in his grip, the more confused I become. Is my freedom worth betraying him?

Savior

I’ve never met a man as dangerous for me as Clayton. The sexy FBI agent wants to enlist my junkie kid brother in his war against the violent Latin Kings. My proximity puts me in the

line of fire, but Clayton’s determined to keep me close to protect me.

When I try to push him away, he ruthlessly exploits my weakness: lust. He grants me the sweet release that I can only find in sexual submission, and I am quickly becoming addicted to him.

I am willing and eager to give him my body. But can I do that without putting my heart – and my life – in jeopardy?

Rogue

I can’t afford to make mistakes. When you work for the FBI, mistakes can cost lives.

Busting BDSM club Decadence for drug trafficking is my chance to prove myself. And no pushy Dominant is going to throw me off my game, not even sinfully sexy club owner Derek Carter.

I have to keep him close in order to uncover his secrets, but keeping him close to my body while guarding my heart is proving more difficult than I ever imagined.

He might be my biggest mistake yet.

Knight

My captor tormented me until I forgot my own name. Then my new Master came and saved me. He tries to make me see him as FBI agent Smith James, but I can only think of him as

Master.

He is obsessed with putting the pieces of my shattered soul back together. He wants to heal me, but I’m scared. If I’m not a slave, he won’t be my Master anymore. I might be a shadow of the woman I was, but without him I would cease to exist altogether.

I’ve found my salvation in his obsession, my freedom in captivity. If I can make him love me, he’ll never let me go.

Mentor

A heartless man abducted me. He treats me like his plaything, but I suspect I mean more to him than idle amusement. He wants to make me his. The monster needs me.

Trapped in the dark, I’m coming to need him. He sets my body on fire, and his touch is a tender mercy.

Maybe he’s not heartless, after all.

Master

I’m hunting down the most heinous criminal I’ve ever encountered. The man known to us only as The Mentor abducts and tortures women. And now he’s set his sights on me.

My sexy new partner Reed Miller is determined to protect me, and he insists on staying close. Too close. His allure frightens me almost as much as the sadistic man who is stalking me. I have to trust him if we’re going to work together, but trust isn’t something that comes easily for me.

To save my life, Reed demands that I give him my heart.

King

My father gave me to him as a bargaining chip, as though I was nothing more than flesh to be traded. I hate him for that, and I hate the man who took me: Javier Santiago, a member of the violent Latin Kings.

Even though I don’t want to belong to him, he is fiercely possessive of me. And when his ownership is threatened, his enemies aren’t the only ones to suffer. He says my freedom is the price for my safety. I think he just wants to keep me all for himself.

Note: The Impossible Series contains scorching hot scenes of BDSM!

Excerpt

Javier caught my chin between his thumb and forefinger, redirecting my gaze to his. His warm breath teased across my lips, and I shivered. “Tell me.”

I hesitated, but he didn’t release me from his intense eyes. “You promised to obey me, Charlotte. Now I’m ordering you to tell me what you want.”

“I think you know,” I hedged.

“I do. But I want to hear you say it. I want you to ask me for it.”

“I…” I swallowed. “I don’t know what to ask for.”

He brushed a doting kiss across my forehead. “So innocent, muñequita. Let me help you.”

In a move faster than I could follow, he flipped me onto my back and settled his body over mine. His long fingers encircled my wrists, pressing them into the mattress on either side of my head. I stared up at him, wide-eyed and waiting for more.

He dipped his head toward me, nuzzling my neck. His hot lips teased across my skin, his tongue tracing a scorching line from just below my ear to my shoulder. He nipped at the sensitive flesh there, and I cried out as the little flash of pain sent a searing line of desire straight to my sex.

“You like when I hold you down,” he whispered in my ear. “You like being at my mercy.” His teeth closed around my earlobe, and my hips ground up against him in response. “You want me to take control.  Don’t you?”

“Yes!” The admission came out on a soft moan. With those few harsh touches and dark words, my body was practically thrumming for him.

He bit my shoulder again, and I gasped. “Ask me for it. Tell me how much you want it.”

There was something more to his demand than just a desire for dirty talk. He needed to hear me say that I wanted him to treat me this way. He needed my permission before he went any further.

“I want you to take control, Javier.” My voice was clear and calm. “Please.”

His kiss was merciless, but it was different from the hungry way he had taken my mouth in the past. This was more deliberate, controlled. A calm strength seemed to have settled over him, and all the frenzied energy with which he had ravaged me before was channeled into something that was somehow even more overwhelming. His lips moved against mine in a ruthless assault on my senses, tugging and sucking until all the nerve endings there came alive. I opened for him, inviting him in. I could feel his arrogant smile against my mouth just before his tongue stroked in. He entered in teasing forays, until I arched up into him, silently begging for more. Only then did he take me in earnest, his tongue penetrating me with erotic intent. He didn’t let up until I was just as desperate for breath as I was for his touch.

When he pulled away, my chest rose and fell in little short pants, and my head was spinning. His cocky grin nearly took my breath away all over again. I’d never seen him look so at ease with himself. He needed this. He needed me, needed to dominate me. My sex quivered at the thought.
