Can he keep her forever, under his dominance? Asmodeus is the Archdemon of lust. Ever since he became a fallen angel, he’s been walking the earth, inciting and encouraging lust and lechery amongst mankind. In his guise of Barrett Lord, he rules over an empire of clubs that cater to the lustful urges and fetishes of humans. When he spots Arianell Monroe at his annual Halloween party, he determines to have her. Her angelic beauty and innocence are too much for him to ignore. He wants to take her purity as his own, corrupt her and ruin her for any other man. And he’s going to start by introducing her to his private BDSM dungeon. Arianell is fascinated by BDSM, but her shyness, coupled with the reactions others have had to her albinism, has kept her from exploring her curiosity. But something about Barrett Lord puts her instantly at ease. She’s immediately attracted to the powerful and dominant club owner and finds herself quickly sucked into his heady orbit. She naturally submits to his commanding alpha presence and sexual dominance but determines to set her heart and head against him. Even she knows that he’s not the sort of man who will commit—to anything. Arianell is special and Asmodeus wants to keep her, but to do so, he’ll have to risk everything. Will she agree to his plans? Or will he lose her forever?

Excerpt from Under His Dominance
Ari dropped her gaze to the ground, suddenly nervous to be in the vicinity of such a man. A man who could silently command such deference. The very atmosphere crackled with his presence, with an air of danger. The way that the immediate crowd had grown reverent in his company was positively terrifying.
Suddenly she found herself staring not at the floor, but at a pair of men’s black dress shoes. She could sense his focus on her, willing her—no—demanding her to raise her eyes to his. And as if her will were no longer her own, she acquiesced to his unspoken request. Slowly her gaze started to travel upward, taking in muscular thighs encased in black dress pants, up further to his white button-down shirt spread tight across a broad and powerful chest. He’d rolled his shirt to the elbows and her breath hitched as she took in thick, tattooed forearms. She tilted her head back and eyed his open collar and bare neck. He was tall, very tall, and incredibly well built. Her heart skipped a beat before she lifted her gaze to study his features. She paused, her breath stalling in her chest as she stared at his painted skull face. His skin was a vivid, matte white, deep black circled his eyes and nose, and his mouth depicted a skull’s creepy leer. His face paint was so expertly applied, it set his chiseled jaw and perfect cheekbones into sharp relief, making him appear even more sinister and dangerous. A shiver rippled through her and peaked her nipples. He stared into her eyes with such a hot intensity that her core quivered and butterflies erupted low in her belly. He gripped her chin between a thumb and forefinger, tilted her head back further and stared into her eyes.
“Violet,” he rumbled. “Exquisite.”
