When physical pain allows you to escape your reality; what do you do when the pain is no longer strong enough to quiet the emotional ache?

Diouana "Nikki" returned to her hometown six months ago to tend to her sick mother. She thought she'd left her "baggage" behind her on the opposite coast, only to find that it never left her side. As her self-destructive thoughts begin to consume her, her mother -- realizing Nikki's torment -- pushes Nikki to complete her last wishes.

Eric Brenton, Nikki's new neighbor, lives in a dark, chaotic world that is easily hidden behind his model good looks and cocky demeanor. Unapologetic about his dirtier intentions, he sets his sights on Nikki with an offer to help her. But his help comes with very unorthodox conditions and a huge price.

And Eric...comes with an extensive black box warning label.

Kristen’s Review:

WOW! To be honest I really had no clue what I was getting myself into when I started reading The Sordid Promise by Courtney Lane. This story has so many twists and turns and is flat out completely insane. It is a well written psychological thriller with a ton of steam and one of those stories that you just can not put down.

Nikki is mentally ill and her mother is dying when she meets Eric the hot dirty talking doctor that recently moved in next door. That man could talk the panties off any woman. The way he works over woman is so vile, but yet hot, I can’t even explain it. He is a master at domination and control. Both Eric and Nikki are completely messed up characters but Eric takes the Cake. Their story is one that you have to read for yourself. It’s so damn twisted….ugh! If you enjoy a good mind fuck with some hot twisted sex scenes than this a definite read for you!

*This story is not for everyone. Beware.

Author Bio:

I’ve been creating my own little world since I was very young. When I was eight years old, I began to bring those worlds to life with pen and paper.

While I write across genres (I find it hard to stick to one genre), I do have an archetype when it comes to the female protagonist — they have to have certain type of strength, strong convictions, and layered personalities. There will often be a lot of darkness and depth to my stories, but I don’t see the point in writing vapid characters who are thrust into “safe” situations.

Writing Science Fiction/Fantasy is my first love. If there is one thing for sure, I’m a bit of a misfit when it comes to Romance. I prefer my romances dark. The elements that will be common in my stories are: depth, controversy, and misfit characters.
