Product Description

Tortured Love, 1

Graphic designer Lynda Shelton has agreed to marry Mergers and Acquisitions legend Merrick Dalton for one reason only—to save her family’s company. She’s warned this is a marriage in name only. Merrick will never love her. That’s fine with Lynda because she has sworn off men. 

Merrick Dalton has wanted Shelton Energy for a long time, so when he’s asked to save the company, he jumps at the chance. He has vowed never to love another woman, but Merrick can give Lynda what he’s been assured she wants—material comfort and social standing. 

The one place where Merrick and Lynda connect is in bed. She has a penchant for his kinky tastes, and he stirs desire in her like she’s never known. But when their secrets surface, the reason they married turns into a dangerous game of illusions and lies.

Be Warned: spanking, anal sex, sex toys, BDSM

 

Excerpt:

He kissed her rough and hard, shoving his tongue into her mouth. Lynda melted against him, powerless to do anything except enjoy it. Her hands circled his waist, then moved to his firm ass. He moaned deep in his throat, so she pushed his sweatpants down and reached between their bodies to grasp his cock.

“Oh, baby…” He trailed his tongue across her cheek then down to her neck, where he planted tiny bites along her jaw and collarbone. Lynda stroked him, moving her hand up and down over the entire length of his dick. “That feels so fucking nice!”

He was rock hard and slick, and she was sure she’d go out of her mind with need. Merrick moved his hand off her face and slid it between her legs, massaging her clit with one thumb while his fingers probed her wetness. “You’re ready for me, aren’t you, Lynda?”

“Yes!”

He let go of her and stepped back, then removed his sweats and tossed them across the room. When he embraced her again, he eased them both down to the floor. He covered her body with his and kissed her again, taking his time and torturing her with desire.

She moaned into his mouth and writhed against him, running her hands up and down his back and ass. He had such a beautiful body, and the way his muscles flexed under her touch left her breathless. The power emanating from this man was intoxicating. She couldn’t get enough.

Merrick released her mouth and trailed his tongue and hands over her breasts again, then spread her legs and dove between them. “I can smell how fucking ready you are for me.”

She cried out as he clamped his mouth on her pussy, sucking hard. It took mere seconds for her to come, and when he realized what was happening, he pushed two fingers into her wetness. Lynda was nothing at that moment except a body filled with lust. Her mind couldn’t process anything except Merrick and what he did to her.

Merrick moved his fingers in and out, prolonging her contractions until she could hardly breathe, and then he slid a finger into her ass. This time, it didn’t burn. It only served to make her want more inside there. She wanted him to fill her up and fuck her raw. She’d never felt this way about sex. Not even close. This man had put a spell on her and she was powerless under it, but that’s exactly where she wanted to be.

He removed his fingers and kissed her again, rough and hard. “I’m going to fuck you. I’m going to fuck you so hard.”

“Yes … please…”

Merrick brushed a hand across her hair in a tender gesture that left her speechless, and then he sat back on his heels, lifted her hips from underneath, and plunged his dick into her pussy. She groaned loudly as the sweet sensations from his thrusting washed over her. Her back hurt from lying on the floor, but she didn’t give a shit. She never wanted this to stop.

He pulled her into a sitting position so she was on top of him, and then kissed her again, cupping her face with both hands. When he released it, he grasped her hips and moved her up and down. “That’s it, baby. Fuck me good.”

With his cock pushing all the way inside like this, Lynda gasped at the combination of pain and pleasure coursing through her body. He was so damn big! But it felt fucking incredible. She clung to his arms and shivered as the muscles in them flexed with each movement.

“Look at me.” Their eyes met, and Lynda’s heart fluttered at the expression on his face. It was a combination of pure lust and awe. “You’re my wife. You’re mine. I’m not letting you go.”

    Ravenna Tate wins again with this new series… The book was full of intrigue, lies, and betrayal… I loved the characters and was so happy to see how easily their love developed even if the time line was a short one…

    Merrick is ruthless in every way but has decided to marry Lynda as part of a company takeover… Their relationship is not an easy one and has started out as a lie… I was glad to see them act as adults and not let misunderstandings get in the way of their blossoming relationship…

    Lynda Shelton stepped away from her family and the family company, Shelton Energy, in her quest to live her life, away from the spotlight. Now, left with no choice, Lynda must marry Merrick Dalton in name only to save her family’s company. A marriage of convenience is just fine for her because she has sworn off men after she has suffered pain, humiliation and devastation for the last time at the hands of a man.

    Merrick is more than willing to do anything to get his hands on Shelton Energy, even marry a woman he barely knows. After losing his first wife and vowing to never love again, Merrick knows he can provide the stability, material comforts and the social standings to go with it to make Lynda happy.

    Merrick and Lynda might be strangers but there is one place they connect quite well: in bed. Lynda has kinky tastes and Merrick is just the man to give her what she needs. It isn’t long before their secrets are exposed and a dangerous web of deceit and deception is revealed.

    I have to rather sheepishly confess, author Ravenna Tate has been on my “watch for this author list” for quite a long time but I haven’t taken the plunge and I totally regret it but it is something easily rectified with a few clicks on my computer and I am the proud owner of several books from Ms. Tate and my auto buy shopping list has now grown to include this very talented author.

    Right from the very beginning of the story, I felt this invisible force pulling me directly into the story, capturing my attention. This author knows exactly how to successfully fuse drama, intrigue and romance into a fresh and haunting story that seems to stay with the reader long after the last word has been read. It has been quite a while since I have found a hero and heroine within a story capture my attention the way Merrick and Lynda did. Both have painful periods in their past that have shaped their personalities of today. I absolutely devoured every ounce of the tension, angst and passion that existed between the heated interactions of the lovers. If anyone deserves a happily-ever-after it’s these two. Their marriage might have started out on lies and illusions but it grew to be something much more. The chemistry and passion between Merrick and Lynda is explosive, smoldering and moving. Watching Merrick champion for Lynda is heady and potent. These two deserve to find a lasting and loving forever. The ending is purely amazing and the reader will be hard-pressed not to be shedding a tear or two with this one.

    Sometimes a book comes out that you just can't put down. Unfortunately, between appointments, chores and that crazy thing called sleep, I had to keep putting this book down. Boy, was I mad. You know how it is, you really get into an amazing book, and then life has to interrupt. That's how good Unyeilding is.

    Can't say I'm surprised though, Ravenna Tate is just that great of a writer, so I knew going in that this would be something special. And I'm glad to say I was right.

    In "Unyielding", Lydia Shelton has just come into ownership of her families failing company.Her father has convinced her that the only way to save the company is to marry mergers and acquisitions guru Merrick Dalton. Meanwhile, Merrick has been told that Lydia just wants a marriage where she can be kept in comfort and maintain her social status. Neither realises they have been played.

    Lydia has sworn off men due to her past experiences, which she lies to Merrick about, too embarrased to admit the whole truth. Merrick refuses to tell Lydia about his past and the reason why he's not the "Hearts and flowers" type of guy.

    But as we get into the story, truths come to light. Will their marriage of convenience turn into more? Or will it be over before it begins? You have to pick up a copy of "Unyielding" to find out. And trust me, you want to. It's that incredible.

    This is just the first book in the "Tortured Love" series and I certainly am excited for more. The sex is off the charts! Merrick is the type of Alpha male every woman swoons over with his twisty soul. And Lynda is a kick ass heroine


  4. Hot and oh so emotional read 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2016

    What can I say about this book, other than I loved it Unyielding is a fantastic start to a new series, with a hero to die for and a heroine, you cannot help but love. The series is called Tortured Love, and I have to say it fits perfectly, because both Lynda and Merrick are indeed tortured. Badly hurt in love in the past neither one of them finds it easy to trust again, let alone love.

    I loved the journey the author took us on in this book. We're with Merrick and Lynda every step of the way, as they try to make this marriage arrangement work, and deal with the demons from their past, and other current issues which threaten to derail them before they even have a chance to get to know each other.

    Ravenna dug deep with the emotions in this story, and takes both her characters and the reader on a roller coaster ride. I laughed, and I shed a few tears, and let's not forget the scorching sex scenes.

    A fabulous read all round, so go forth and read it. You won't be disappointed, and I'm looking forward to the next story!


  5. Finding Love In Unexpected Places 5 Star Review

    Merrick Dalton is a man that has seen the devastating effects greed can cause. Because of that, he's built walls around his heart to protect himself from the hurt that has made him the man he is today.

    Lynda Shelton is a woman that as been betrayed by those she has loved, people that she thought would protect her and love her as she loved them. Because of her past, she been a bit of a loner and distanced herself from the lifestyle she was born into.

    Circumstances arise that bring these two lonely souls together. So can a real relationship grow between the two that started out as just a business arrangement? Can they bring down the walls that they built around their hearts enough to let each other in? And how will their relationship be effected when the secrets each have kept come to light, will they be able to move past the lies to learn to trust each other?

    Unyielding is a captivating story about two people that never thought a business deal would lead to a love that would heal their broken hearts. Merrick and Lynda went into their marriage believing lies about each other, but as they got to know each other they began to uncover the truths.

    What I loved most about these two was their connection, and not just in bed. I loved how they were able to move past the reasons they got together to really get to know each other, the heart of each other. Neither had a stellar past, but they worked through issues together, leaning on each other. You are able to watch them fall in love even as they both fought their feelings.

    Merrick is just as demanding in the boardroom as he is in the bedroom. The things to says and does will have you panting and wishing you were Lynda. That man is truly on sexy beast. I adore how he protects Lynda, the way he fights for her, the way he stands up for her. That makes him extremely swoon worthy.

    Lynda is a simple person not needing all the materials things others would desire, she's a down to Earth kind of woman. I love how she stays true to herself no matter what. Where others would have falling, she is strong enough to keep standing and holding her head high.

    This was an enchanting book that captivated me from the start until the very end. It kept me guessing on what was going to happen next. So many questions to answer... how is Merrick and Lynda going handle the next obstacle thrown in their path; would those that betrayed them be brought to justice; would this end up being a cold marriage or something deep and profound?

    Unyielding is a remarkable beginning to this series and I can't wait to see what the next book will bring.
