From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, the first book in the CARELESS WHISPERS series.
Please note: This is the standalone spinoff of the INSIDE OUT series. New readers can enjoy this without reading INSIDE OUT but those who love INSIDE OUT will FINALLY find out what happened to Ella!
Ella Ferguson awakes alone in Italy, unsure of who she is, and a gorgeous man has claimed her as his own. He's tall, dark, and sexy, with money and power, the kind of man who makes a girl want to be possessed. And he does possess her, whispering wicked wonderful promises to her, stealing her trust and her heart. Soon though, the past finds her, yanking her from a cocoon of passion and safety. Everything is not how it seems. The truth will shatter her world, but it can set her free, if it doesn't destroy her first.
You can’t deny the mystery and intrigue that comes with every single Lisa Renee Jones’ book. DENIAL, book 1 in the brand new Careless Whispers series, gives us the long-awaited story of Ella Ferguson and her mysterious disappearance. Waking up not knowing what happened to her or who she even is, she relies on the strength and protection of a stranger – a stranger with a familiarity she can’t deny. Ella is held captive to this man’s power, control, and beauty. She is helpless in his arms. They share an unbridled passion that turns deep as they uncover Ella’s memory. Ella has to deal with her past all over again, and with each passing day, it comes harder, faster, and more intense. Kayden gives an erotic promise, but his presence is bringing up more questions than answers.
Dark, edgy, and full of erotic thrill, DENIAL is a book you will completely lose yourself in. You will become one with this story and you will find yourself fighting alongside of Ella. Fighting for her memory. Fighting for her freedom. Fighting your thoughts and emotions on a certain stranger. Prepare to be on edge. This is only the beginning of Ella’s journey. I’m excited for what’s to come. There are so many players in this game, and you just never know who is friend, or who is foe. What you think you know…means nothing in a Lisa Renee Jones’ romance. There are always twists, always turns, and ALWAYS enough passion that will hold you captive until the last page has turned. Nothing will get your stomach in knots fast enough than a romantic suspense from this incredibly talented author. Perfection. ALWAYS perfection.
I couldn’t sleep. I meant to go to the kitchen and then I ended up here because I wanted . . .” His reaction cuts like his anger. “Just never mind.” I try to move around him but his hands press to the wall beside me, caging me, and now I’m angry. “Are we doing this again? Don’t bully me. My stupid flashbacks are doing a fine job of that on their own. I said I’m sorry. Just let me go back to my room.”
“You wanted what?”
“I wanted you to do what you swore you could,” I blurt, having nothing to lose when everything is already gone.
“Only I don’t want you to fuck me until I can’t remember my name. I want you to fuck me until I stop thinking about that man and the gun. Because you were right. Memories are the enemies that never die. But I know you don’t want—”
His hand slides under my hair and he drags me to him, my hand flattening on the hard wall of his chest. “I do want. So fucking bad it’s killing me.”
My palm is directly over his heart, and I can feel it racing, the air around us crackling with barely contained passion. “I don’t need a hero to save my virtue tonight. I need you. So please. Fuck me and then fuck with my head so no one else can. Let me choose my own sins.”
He is stone, unmoving, his body steel, his expression unreadable, the sexual tension crackling between us. “You want sin, sweetheart,” he says. “I’ll give you sin.” His mouth closes down on mine, his tongue licking into my mouth, wicked with demand, and I can taste his hunger, his need. A deep, aching need I want to fill.
