I am Damien Stark. From the outside, I have a perfect life. A billionaire with a beautiful family. But if you could see inside my head, you’d know I’m as f-ed up as a person can be. Now more than ever.
I’m driven, relentless, and successful, but all of that means nothing without my wife and daughters. They’re my entire world, and I failed them. Now I can barely look at them without drowning in an abyss of self-recrimination.
Only one thing keeps me sane—losing myself in my wife’s silken caresses where I can pour all my pain into the one thing I know I can give her. Pleasure.
But the threats against my family are real, and I won’t let anything happen to them ever again. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep them safe—pay any price, embrace any darkness. They are mine.
I am Damien Stark. Do you want to see inside my head? Careful what you wish for.

Rosa’s rating: 5 of 5 iScream Cones
“His. No matter how much he fucked up, no matter how far off the path he strayed, she would always be his. Always be his beacon back home again. Back to her.”
This amazing story has been a long time coming and it was well worth the wait. Damien is a man that knows how to keep a secret and I’ve been dying to get inside his head. I agree that “In the cutthroat world of buying and selling the universe, it was handy to have a reputation as a major badass.” But, it was also that reputation that put him and his family at risk. The threats just keep coming in spite of him having as much security as his billions can buy.
The suspense is cranked up to turbo in this edge of your seat tale. Secrets are revealed and the surprises keep coming. But what is never a surprise is the passion between Damien and his Nikki.
I’ve read thousands of books over the years, but not many come close to Damien & Nikki’s love story. Their love is fated and their connection is soul deep, they are tethered to each other. “We’re bound, you and I. And somehow, the thread that connects us would have pulled you to me.”
I have enjoyed so many amazing characters in the Stark universe and I feel sure that I’ll be seeing them again in future releases. I love how they pop up again and again, always bringing a smile to my face. I’m excited to see what she has for us next. The line forms here…
Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and #1 International bestselling author of over one hundred novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.
Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, and paranormal mommy lit.
JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” A six time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy) and in 2017 for Wicked Dirty in the same category. Her Demon Hunting Soccer Mom series (as Julie Kenner) is currently in development as a television show.
Her books have sold over three million copies and are published in over twenty languages.
In her previous career as an attorney, JK worked as a clerk on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and practiced primarily civil, entertainment and First Amendment litigation in Los Angeles and Irvine, California, as well as in Austin, Texas. She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
