I’m both anxious and excited about this book. It’s by far the darkest thing I’ve written so far, and I know some readers will find it disturbing. Hell, I find it disturbing. Why did I write it then? Well, to be honest, I’m not sure. Somehow Nora and Julian got into my head, and I simply had to tell their story.
As I say in the warning, it’s definitely not a traditional romance. What I don’t know is if it can be called a romance at all. Certainly some readers thought Close Liaisons is not a romance, since Korum essentially coerces Mia into the relationship. As one of my favorite reviews put it, she’s “a prisoner in her own life.”
In Twist Me, the coercion aspect is much less subtle. The relationship is between a girl who gets kidnapped (Nora) and her kidnapper (Julian). Unlike many “dark romance” heroes, Julian is not a sheep in wolf’s clothing—he’s the real deal. Their relationship is wrong and disturbing on many levels. However, if you’re an avid reader of dark erotica, you may find that the book is not as dark as some in that genre, since the BDSM aspect is fairly mild.
I can’t wait to share this book with you and see what you all think.
