BLOG TOUR + GIVEAWAY: Madeleine Abducted by M.S. Willis





She was meant to be his destruction…

A pawn played in a perilous game between 
father and son…
Yet, her strength was more than either 
man could imagine. 
As Maddy learns to save herself… 
She becomes the one thing that could 
set the son free.

Madeleine Clark was raised to become a concert cellist. Sheltered and naïve, she remains hidden behind her music, a protection from the world around her. On the night of her first solo performance, Maddy accepts the admiration of a stranger and finds herself captive in a cruel and twisted power struggle between a sadistic father and his son, Aaron.

Seemingly, dangerous and uncaring, Aaron manages the business operations of his father’s estate. Wanting nothing to do with the slaves kept at the Estate, Aaron refuses to take part in the deeper depravities of his father. Despite his resistance, Aaron’s father ‘gifts’ him with a petite, brunette woman he can’t refuse. 

A bond forged in conspiracy and deceit, Aaron struggles to save Maddy by teaching her to survive in the world in which he’d been raised. An unlikely union, Aaron soon learns that great strengths can exist within small packages, while Madeleine learns that love and light can exist in the darkest of places.

Nadine's Review

4 Revengeful Stars –Spoiler Free Review 

If you expect to find a love story in Madeleine Abducted then sorry to disappoint but you won’t find it. This story is something else; something deeper… it’s about two people, who seek vengeance, bringing down evil that destroyed both their lives and enjoyed it. Who ripped everything they loved from them, with a sadistic smile, enjoying the pain he caused them. 

It’s a story of fear, of sorrow, of events not spoken of in polite society. It’s a story of abductions, of enslavement, of the moment when life is introduced to darkness.

Madeleine… beautiful, innocent, shy and talented Madeleine. She didn’t fully live yet and kept herself hidden from praying eyes... hidden beyond her true passion- music. After her solo performance Maddy got a rose from a beautiful stranger. A man whose beauty struck her; he mirrored everything Maddy desired but also everything she feared. She could see it in his eyes … eyes, she could get lost in… eyes, she would never forget… a voice, imprinted in her ears and mind.

Aaron, a master in his work – the assassin of The Estate. He’s the son of the devil, having no other choice but to endure his father’s cruel and monstrous biddings. To his 25th birthday he got a very special gift…. A gift that will turn his life upside down, increases his hatred for his dad, motivates his mission to ruin this evil empire, but also a gift that brings light into the darkness. Madeleine- 24hrs ago she was this shy but still pure and innocent woman, and now she was abducted, bruised and scared to death lying in a gift box locking eyes with him… 

Shock mirrored both their faces… Aaron couldn’t believe his own eyes but knew better than to show weakness in front of his father; giving him the benefit to see he hurt his son.
All his fault… his fault all alone; because of his love for her music… the connection he felt with her, her story while she played. Aaron’s only escape of his brutal reality is when listening to Maddy play. 

She’s light while I’m darkness, she’s raw beauty and so blessedly pure while I am nothing more than a poison to humanity.

Maddy, looking in the eyes of the man she was wondering about if she’ll ever see him again. Now realizing she only got blinded by a man’s beauty, remembering her uncles words while fearing what is going to happen next: ”…evil hid itself within the most enticing of forms, drawing its victims in with a false sense of wonder..”

Welcome to The Estate, where your nightmares become reality, and the devil represents itself in the form of Joseph Carmichael. A man who is feared by everyone on the property, a man that has power, and uses his power to cause destruction, even upon his own son Aaron.

It was the first time I’ve read a book from M.S. Willis so I blindly dived in… her writing is vivid and she kept my interest piped throughout the book. I have to say I had a hard time connecting with the character and the story itself because it was written in 3rd person and I prefer to feel a characters emotions rather than just reading what everything is doing etc. I love to be in someone’s head; reading there dark and twisted, terrified, but also beautiful and heartwarming thoughts.
After 50% I was fully into it, because more action happened and I’m glad I continued reading - more action, more thrilling moments, and awe moments pushed the book from a 3 to a 4-star rating.

Yes it was a bit dark, but not too much though. I loved the twistedness in the story that it wasn’t just this typically master-slave love story; furthermore, the book showed me two strong people who evolved. Two people who reached their goal, giving themselves strength through the darkest hours. Don’t worry, there are some steamy scenes in it too which I enjoyed, because they were not too much and left things for your imagination open ;)
You’ve touched something of mine… so, now, I get to touch something of yours.” Yep, that’s Aaron and ladies it’s a great scene!!

I definitely recommend this book. It can be read as a stand-alone which is awesome!


Excerpt

Green, the color of jade, the color of budding life in Spring, burned down into her; backlit and heated by a fire of rage, of need.  Aaron’s mouth curved at the ends, an unknown thought amusing to him as she attempted to stand up to a man who controlled her completely…owned her in a way that no man should be allowed.

                Like lightning, he moved quickly, so fast and unexpected, that Maddy gasped when the weight of his body came down on her.  The pills fell from her hand to the floor as Aaron pushed her back on the bed, held his body above her, his hand roughly traveling up the side of her torso, lifting her shirt to expose her breasts to his gaze.  “If I wanted to take you, Madeleine, I wouldn’t have to drug you to do so.”  The heat of his mouth stung as he wrapped his full lips around the peak of her breast.  His tongue laved against the sensitive tip, his teeth grazing the same area where he had marked her before.  A cry escaped her lips, part fear, part surprise; part lust so subtle, it caused her heart to skip in its rhythm.  As he worked her body into a frenzy, his hand traveled down to cup her between her thighs.  A single finger tapped against the opening to her body, she cried out again, not understanding the heat that bloomed within her core.  He pushed up suddenly, watched as she lay panting beneath him.  “Even if your mind did not remember my cruelty, your body certainly would.  The pain of being split apart when I bury myself within you cannot be easily forgotten…even if done while drugged.”

                Just as quickly as he’d come down on top of her, he stood.  His eyes searched the floor and when he found the pills, he bent over to pick them up.  This time not an offer, but a demand, his hand reached to wrap around her face, squeezing her cheeks until her mouth fell open.  Shoving the pills onto her tongue he grabbed the glass of water, poured the contents down her throat, washing her new form of chains down into her body.  “I have no plans to grant you the satisfaction of my cock, I simply want you to sleep.  I don’t feel like spending the evening jumping up every time I think you are attempting to escape.”

                Aaron took the glass and as he walked to place it in the bathroom he commanded, "Lay down, Maddy, close your eyes and let sleep take you.  That will be the only thing having its way with your body tonight."
