Blurb:

The Odessa Organization is more than crime, broken laws, and bloodied enemies.
It’s loyalty, perseverance, and strength.
You must first prove your worth before you are accepted.
Anton is the first standalone book in USA Today bestselling author KL Donn’s Odessa Organization as part of the Social Rejects Syndicate. While each book in the series can be read alone, you may find more enjoyment in chronological order.
Anton Renznikov took the world on his shoulders when his father died. The Odessa Organization became his sole purpose for surviving the often turbulent streets of his Ukraine home. With his brothers by his side, Anton would conquer any enemy that came his way with swift ruthlessness and a devilish hand.
What he wasn’t expecting was falling for his daughters’ nanny and when his lifestyle comes for her, steals Sofiy Koval from his fingertips, there isn’t a force in the world that will stop him from exacting justice.
Seen but never heard. Back straight, stand tall, eyes forward.
Words Sofiy has beaten into her by a mother expecting her to achieve things she doesn’t even have her sights on. From a small farming town, Sofiy only wants two things: Her own family, and a man who is so madly in love with her, he can’t help but show it.
What she gets instead is Anton Renznikov.
The man responsible for her brother’s death. It doesn’t stop her from loving him though. Or his daughter. The sweet young child steals Sofiy’s heart from the day they meet. When Sofiy gets a call that her father is dying, she knows immediately that she must leave, only Anton has become so obsessed with the young woman that he doesn’t want to let her go and out of his rage comes burning words that ensure Sofiy doesn’t return.
Only nobody realized the reason she hasn’t come home is because she’s in the hands of a mad man bent on destroying not only Anton, but gaining control of the Organization as well.
What better way to show Sofiy that she’s his entire world than to kill everyone who thought they could lay hands on her. Anton is on a mission to not only win over Sofiy’s heart but ensure his mistakes never touch her again.
–––––––––––––––––––––
Looking for your romance to be a little dark, a little devious and a whole lot obsessive? Anton is the man for you then! While this book is a standalone first in series book, there are dark themes, abuse, torture, and overall nastiness that comes with dark romance. Know your limits because I sure don’t. If you choose to venture on, you should know this book is going to check all your boxes!

If misery loves company, why was I better off alone?
 
I was saved from a nightmare and left in the darkness, suffering through my pain alone. No family, no home, and no one to care if I lived or died, I walked through life with a fake smile and a hardened heart. My silence spoke a thousand words, but no one heard them… until he saw past my pain and helped me discover my voice.
 
He healed the broken parts of me and twisted my pain into pleasure, giving me experiences beyond my wildest dreams. With his touch, I found a peace that gave me hope for the first time in my life. But hope can be dangerous when real monsters still circled, just out of sight.
 
Those who broke me are there waiting to destroy the good parts of my life, damning me to anguish and despair. As the past catches up with me, buried secrets from the past shake my foundation to the core, and the monsters won’t stop until they pull me back into the nightmare.
 
Once the truth is finally revealed, will the nightmare overtake me, dragging me back into the darkness? 
 
When I finally speak, will anyone believe me, or will I be destined to live in silence?

NOW LIVE!

I started my first writing journal in 7th grade after a dream about my favorite boy band, New Kids on the Block. A dream also inspired the writing of The Life of Anna and Distorted Hope. I dreamed I was kidnapped with Adam Savage from Mythbusters and taken to Mexico. That dream ultimately morphed into the book now known as Distorted Hope.

I never set out to become a published author. I never imagined that there were other people out there with twisted minds like my own. But after sharing rough drafts of The Life of Anna, I decided to be brave and publish the first part of Anna’s story, Enslaved. When The Life of Anna took off as it did, I was in complete shock. The success of the books humbled and encouraged me. I’ve made such good friends through my writing and I can’t imagine ever stopping.

I write for myself, but always keep my reader’s hearts in mind. I follow my characters’ lead and sometimes they lead me into the darkness, but there’s always light somewhere, if you look hard enough. There’s always hope.

I love hearing from my readers. They keep me going; keep me writing. An author is nothing without a reader.

Melody needs to keep Dean and The Apex free from her aunt’s machinations, but she simply must escape Coven Bestia. Her aunt is angered by Dean’s continuing absence and wants Melody to return to the compound as soon as possible.

While she might be safer at Adolphus Academy, not everyone is happy to have her there – especially when she’s bonded to a much-desired member of The Apex.

Now Melody must juggle the needs of her new familiar, along with the urgings of six more shifters who wish to bond to her, all while dodging the catty and immature classmates and whatever her aunt is planning.

Then there is the new wolf who’s determined to have her at any cost. Yet another shifter she has to deny – without actually denying him. Her aunt’s punishments for disobedience are getting worse and there’s a good chance that she won’t survive the next one.

Two dragons, three wolves and a very sweet fox are all focussed on becoming her familiars, but Melody is struggling to adjust to her bond with Dean. She’s never been allowed to keep a familiar before.

Their beasts are urging them to claim her, to bond her, to possess her. How long can she resist these men? Freeing them from the academy means enslaving them to her aunt. There are simply no good choices and no easy solution.

All Melody wants is a chance to breathe and be “normal”. Is it too much to ask for?

**Warning, this is a dark reverse harem story with elements that may cause some readers distress, including but not limited to descriptions of physical abuse, neglect and battle. Please consider carefully before purchasing.**

Trent leaned forward and looked at her closely. “You have a bit of egg near your mouth, may I?” he asked her, and she nodded. However, he was as sly as his beast. Rather than brushing it away with his thumb, or wiping it with a cloth, he leaned in and licked it from the corner of her mouth, before running his tongue lightly across her lips.

****

“Mm, delicious,” was all he had time to say before her bonded shifters lifted him bodily away

****

Inside, his beast roared. Already they knew the answer. Yes; yes, it had happened more times than anyone could ever imagine and she blamed herself. He could see it. She was helpless, as much a victim of the abuse as the shifters were, but she saw herself as the cause.

****

She wasn’t, Melody was merely the tool, but he knew that the differentiation would offer her no comfort.

****

His witch was suffering, soul-crushing wounds, and there was nothing he could do to ease pain. How could he, when she was inflicting most of it herself?

His lion surged forward. He wanted to tear out the throat of whoever had marked her. The only marks she should bear were the ones left by his teeth as he claimed her for his mate.

It was what his lion was chanting, however, that held his attention in a way that nothing else could.

****

Mate. Mate. Mate. Mate.

****

The beast was relentless and resolute. Melody was his, and Dean needed to claim her.

Dean sat there, shocked, thrilled, horrified. She was his mate. He’d found her. All this time, and he’d finally found her. And she was his witch! His witch. The woman who had conquered his beast, and then stolen their hearts. But she was in so much pain, so much fear, so much danger. He needed to protect her. He needed to pull her into his arms and hold her there, never letting her go.

****

Whatever Melody needed, he would provide it, or die trying. His witch needed him, and he would answer her call.

****

“Oh my!” Mrs Hardinger was taken aback. “And you’ve got seven of them panting after you. Well, my dear, you’re certainly in for a treat. I can’t speak for Asher or Trent, but I can tell you that the original Apex boys have fucked their way around this academy once or twice. They’re going to make you see stars!” She threw back her head and laughed.

****

“Tell me, sweetheart; have you ever done this to yourself? Ever brought yourself to completion?” he asked, licking the shell of her ear.

****

“You’re so beautiful like this, Melody. Relaxed, free, radiant. If I had my way, you would spend all your days this happy. The way you look now, I know every one of them would want to see it.”

****

“We’re shifters, Melody. The walls and doors are not enough to guarantee your privacy here, pretty one. Even without that, there’s the bond. Believe me, they both know what we’re doing.”

****

This was her wild, wanton and unrepentant, and he had brought her to this point.

****

Together they moaned and writhed and touched, but he took it no further than that. Right then, he just wanted to introduce her to pleasure. Something that she’d had far too little experience with, sexual or not. Melody’s life had been stark and full of pain, and Trent wanted to address the imbalance.

****

Mia

I wanted to be alone. I didn’t need anyone. Never have, never will. Or so I thought.
Until an Italian God shows up, sweeps me off my feet, introduces me to his power. His control. His dominance.
He warned me about him. He told me to run.
But how do you leave someone who completes you? Who captivates you. Who makes you feel full when all you’ve ever felt is empty.
I wanted to be alone. But that was before he took what he wanted, gave me what I craved and left me knowing I would never feel the same again. Not without him.

Leonardo

I’m used to keeping secrets. Used to not trusting anyone.
My day job keeps me hidden. My life, a mystery most will never know.
But she bewitches me with her charm. She fascinates me with the way she shines so bright.
A light in a world full of darkness.
I seduce her for my pleasure. I want her only for one night.
But once you experience heaven, how can you ever come back to earth.
I’m used to keeping secrets. And now that she’s mine, I plan to enjoy her always and never let her go.
