BLOG TOUR: Seize Me From Darkness (Pierced Hearts #4) by Cari Silverwood *5 STAR REVIEW*

BookCover 900x.jpg

This book is part of a dark erotic fiction series and may disturb some readers.

In this dirty, bloody world we live in, the answers to prayers aren't always pretty angels.

Retaken by human traffickers, Jazmine's one hope is ex-cop, ex-mercenary, Pieter, a man with a glower that stops lesser men in their tracks.

She prays he can save her.

But this savior is far from perfect and his flaws may prove as devastating to Jazmine as the torture of her captors.

The fire of dominance never dies.

Desire rippled into me, and I shivered for a full second. Visibly shivered. His threat had done that. Since when had I been into pain?
“You like that?” His eyebrow arched. “You like the threat of pain?”
“No.” My denial was automatic, but I couldn’t stop the tiny swallow that followed. He’d figured me out before I did.
His thumb swept across to my mouth then he curled out my lip as if checking the teeth of a bought creature.
Awareness blossomed in his eyes, a smug satisfaction that half made me want to wipe it away. But the other half of me wanted to do anything he asked.
“Liar,” he murmured, stretching out my nipple, eliciting another gasp. “Pretty liars get hurt anyway. Say thank you.”
My eyes widened. Then he shifted his hand, hooked two fingers into my mouth, and leaned that elbow on the wall behind my head. “Say thank you.”
I wriggled in his grip.
“Say thank you.”
“No, no –”
His fingers hooked deeper in, brushing my tongue. I was crushed, desire annihilating thought. My thank you tumbled out. Tears leaked and dribbled down my cheeks. This was insane.
He pulled his hand from my mouth and held my throat to the wall while he shoved his other hand between my legs, fingers curving along in my moisture and making me part my legs. Then he lifted me an inch or so. My back slid on tile, rekindling pain. I was pinned there, throat and pussy. A needy moan escaped my lips.

Cari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she's spent staring into the night. She has an ornery nature as well as a lethal curiosity that makes her want to upend plots and see what falls out when you shake them.

When others are writing bad men doing bad things you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots.

This might be because she comes from the land down under, Australia, or it could be her excessive consumption of wine.

Freaking out readers is her first love and her second love is freaking out the people living in her books. Her favorite hobby is convincing people she has a basement...though she really doesn’t. Promise. If it existed it would be a terrifying place where you would find all the dangerous things that you never knew you craved.

To escape you'd need to get the key you can see through the grate in your cell door. A key that’s hanging from the ceiling by string. The light above is flickering you can hear feet dragging along the corridor floor. Your door is locked.

Anyone know how to get blood stains out of concrete?

My Writing of Dark Erotic Romances
I was asked why I write this genre by one of my beta readers and to be honest it’s for two reasons. The first is that I’ve always been enthralled by dark scenes in stories – the serial killer tying the heroine to her bed and torturing her before he thinks about killing her, the ancient Gor series where Earth women are kidnapped and taken to another planet to be enslaved in a Swords and Sorcery type setting, Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Dart series (swoon), and many more.
Second reason? I always knew I loved these but writing a contemporary book with this sort of depraved story as the WHOLE PLOT? I’d not have thought to do it without having read Bianca Sommerland’s Deadly Captive and partially read C.J. Robert’s Captive in the Dark.
Though I didn’t finish reading the latter, it inspired me. I know it’s a great and well-written series but the man in it just never appealed to me. I don’t like bad men as the hero in most books unless I can see a lot of good from square one.  Captive in the Dark made me wonder if I could write a book where the man began as a good man.
I planned a story where I could slowly reveal my hero’s inner monster – the part of him that was ecstatic to be a sadist and a Dominant. That story became Take me Break me, a book that featured in the #16 New York Times bestselling collection called Make Me.
Since then I’ve continued my trend of having the man a good person at the beginning of each book. Although Chris in Make me Yours Evermore was a bad guy from the start, his accomplice, Andreas, my Good Samaritan cross happy kidnapper, kept the trend alive.
If making the man good at the beginning is one thing that sets my stories apart from most dark books, another feature might be my settings. I often show off the Australian landscape. All our wonderful beaches and rainforests deserve some attention. In this latest book, Seize me From Darkness, I’ve set most of the action in Papua New Guinea, which is a deeply tropical country, across the sea, to the north of Australia.
However, because much of Seize me From Darkness takes place inside the House, a place designed for the housing and training of sex slaves, I didn’t get to describe much of Papua New Guinea. I did get to show a tropical island though, with gorgeous white sand beaches and assorted sea life. One reader has told me that reading my Pierced Hearts series is like taking a beach holiday. Amusing, considering what happens in the books. I dearly hope her holidays don’t feature torture and abduction. Fiction will always be far more consensual and safe than real life, unless someone glues the eReader to your hand and props open your eyelids.

So there’s some of why and how I write dark fiction. I love it, and it’s my sexual fantasyland too. Enjoy your fiction. Don’t let anyone take it away from you.

Wow, no maybe that's not the word I am looking for. Jaw dropping.... mind blowing.... totally out of control. I LOVED IT of course. Any book that can stop me mid sentence and say "what the hell, no she didn't??" Pure fantasy reading joy right there. Seize me From Darkness is dark and I mean gritty, hard kind of dark, but I couldn't help but love these characters. Yes as a reader you may need to have a love for dark erotica but you would be surprised at what you just might find if you step outside your comfort zone. I know I did.

This dark erotic tale is not for the lovey dovey person but more for the fun open minded reader. (See me jumping up and down waving my hands) 
There are no love poems or swoon like words to sweep you off your feet but, there are heart crushing and heart stopping scenes that will leave you panting and wanting more. Let's just get down to the point it's naughty, gritty and I loved it.  

Ex-cop, ex-mercenary, Pieter knocked my socks off and well my panties too. WOW OH WOW!!! Dominant, rough, no non scene, kick ass man. Hello, I am swooning here but for an entire different reason. This is not the man you want to take you to dinner this is the kind of man you want to tie you up and fulfill every naughty fantasy you can dream up. (Sigh)

So with that in mind if you want a book that is exceedingly well written, dark, naughty and will take your breath away stop right now and grab one of the Pierced Hearts Series by Cari Silverman. This lady right here has the most wicked of talents and mind. She will blow you away and may even question your sanity at times. I love her, she took me way out side my comfort zone and made me love it.
