The NEW YORK TIMES bestseller!
When I saw my escape, I took it. Now I'm in New York City and trying to get my life back on track. Despite the tracker in my ankle, Crow hasn't come for me. He hasn't even called me. I told him the depth of my feelings but he cruelly rejected them.
Maybe he's forgotten about me.
One day, I walk into my apartment and spot the pile of buttons on the counter. I never left them there, and there's only one explanation for their presence.
Maybe Crow hasn't forgotten me after all.
From New York Times Bestselling Author Penelope Sky comes a darkly twisted tale of debt, repayment, and violence. Follow Pearl’s story of betrayal, damnation, and redemption, as she struggles to overcome her situation and growing feelings for her captor, Crow.
I owe him a debt.
A big one.
The payment can't be settled with money or favors.
He only wants one thing.
Every action gets a reward. A button. Once I fill his jar with three hundred and sixty-five buttons, he'll let me go.
He'll let me walk away.
But I have to earn every single one.
By submitting to the darkest, cruelest, and most beautiful man I've ever known.
“5 dark ★★★★★s! Pearl clearly has gone through hell and more... this story is so breathtaking !!!! I am awed by her defiance, gallantry, and great fortitude! As far as Crow is concerned, under his savageness, there are shreds of compassion and humanity” -Goodreads Reviewer
“Haunting, disturbing, emotionally tormenting and oh so dark! I loved Pearl’s strength and bravery. I got lost in Crow’s complexity and fell in love with the man behind the mask. Being a fan of the dark, this definitely ticked all the right boxes for me.” -Goodreads Reviewer
“I read A LOT of books and this series will always be my favorite. Crow and Pearl. I fell in love with both of them. Penelope Sky knows how to develop her characters and does it very well. The story never gets boring. This would make a great mini-series for television!” -Amazon Reviewer
“Good golly, Miss Molly! At first, I was apprehensive about reading this book, but … it is truly a work of art. When I find a book that’s this good I end up staying awake till 4 in the morning because I just can’t put it away till my hubby makes me. This book makes you a little stronger and gives worth to the reason why you should never stop fighting for yourself. I would recommend it to anyone.” -Amazon Reviewer
Trigger Warning: Not for the faint of heart.
I started a blood war. I've made a terrifying enemy.
Over a single woman.
It was a stupid decision but I don't have any regrets.
Because Bellissima is finally mine.
But now I'm dreading the day when I have to drop her off.
Can I really do it?
I'm not supposed to care about this woman. I'm not supposed to care about anyone, actually.
But I care about Bellissima.
I see his wicked smile in the theatre. I see it in the apartment across from mine.
I see it everywhere.
Before I can run, I'm taken.
And when I wake up...I'm in the middle of nowhere.
The man who's taken me claims to be a demon.
And claims I'm his angel.
What happens when he finds out I don't have wings?
I'm not the only prisoner in this forest. There's a little girl too. Her name is Claire. She's beautiful, happy, wonderful. It's my responsibility to protect her--and I will give my life to accomplish that.
She says her father will save us both.
She says he's powerful, formidable, that he'll burn this entire forest to get to her.
I hope she's right.
*** Claire is unharmed throughout this story. There is no violence against children of any kind. ***
But then her mother asks me to marry her.
I say yes.
Now this woman will be mine forever.
Maybe the prophecy really is true. I’m committing to a woman that will never love me in return.
But it was better to be her husband than allow someone else to take my place. It was better to conquer her body every night than be lonely with someone else.
I was twenty-one when the gypsy read my future:
As punishment for your crimes, you will only love one woman...but she'll never love you back.
I didn't believe a word of it.
Until I met Sofia Romano almost ten years later.
I fell hard for this woman. Would die for this woman.
But she left me.
Now years have passed and Sofia needs a husband. Her father is gone and her mother is trying to marry her off to a man that can protect their family, protect their company.
She's looking for someone powerful.
Now it's my chance to have the only woman I've ever loved...and I'll make sure she feels the same way.
I have a lifetime to make that happen.
“UNPUTDOWNABLE!!!! I don't even know where to begin… Penelope Sky ROCKS!!! Everything she writes is amazing - I absolutely love her! I started and never put it down until I got to the end - it was unputdownable!!!” -Amazon Reviewer
“I'm in so much trouble. I only slept a few hours and have to work today but, this book was so good like all of Penelope's books. Steamy, page for page goodness.” -Goodreads Reviewer
“Freaking insanely beautiful. From the very first chapter, you would be gripped with the intensity Sofia and Hades share. Their chemistry was off the roof!” -Goodreads Reviewer
“You have no choice but to fall head over heels in love with Hades, he’s sexy, powerful and all he wants is Sofia. The two of them together are the most exhilarating and exciting thing to read about. I love how this author reels you in and makes you feel so many emotions!: -Amazon Reviewer
“I’m Obsessed.... with this story. The writing is phenomenal. The personality and ideology of every single character is attractive to me. It forces me to wonder about my own thoughts and values.” -Amazon Reviewer
I lost the only thing that matters to me.
And I’m the only one to blame.
I will sacrifice my life, my pride, and everything else for the woman I love.
Whether she loves me or not.
He wants to keep me all to himself.
I inspire him in ways no one else does.
Now I'm living with him in his beautiful mansion, and I don't feel like a prisoner anymore. I'm free to do what I want, with some limitations. But he treats me so coldly, seeing me as an object rather than a person.
His family comes by for lunch and he tells me to stay in my room so they won't see me.
But I have a better idea. I'll make them believe I'm his girlfriend, that we live together and we're in love. Unless he treats me better, I'll tell his parents and sister what our arrangement really is.
And humiliate him.
But this time, he's short on cash.
He needs the shipment now, so he offers me collateral.
He loans me his slave.
Now that pearl and I are so close, I can't condone this type of exchange. It's wrong.
But she wants me. I can tell.
And I definitely want her.
*Buttons and Shame is told from Cane's point of view, but Crow and Pearl have their own POV's to develop the overall story**
