My top 3 darkest romance contemporary standalones (Comfort Food, The Game Maker, and Big Sky) all in ONE delicious bundle!
The Original Dark Romance
Published in early 2010. If you love dark romance, this is where it started…
The first day of my captivity was like being born… or dying. They’re both kind of the same thing with the long tunnel and the bright light at the end. Maybe it wasn’t like either, actually. Maybe I’m remembering it wrong because for me that day all there was, was darkness.
Today I found something beautiful and decided to break it. I wanted to see it shatter in my hand and crumble at my feet. Her name is Emily Vargas. She’s bright and educated and stunning. Articulate. She’ll want someone to talk to her.
The Game Maker
I was too isolated. I was about to be evicted. I made a final desperate call to the man who ruined my life, but he didn’t come for me.
Someone else did.
And then there was Seven. When I first woke in the cell, I thought he was my captor, but he is a pawn, like me.
Seven is beautiful and kind. I want him so much I can barely breathe. He wants to protect me from our captor, but he can’t.
We are both locked inside a game neither of us can ever hope to win, and even though it’s wrong, I’m starting to want both men, not just the good one… the monster as well.
Veronica Cason lives in a small apartment with no clear view of the sky. It’s uncertain which might crush her first: her debt or the buildings squeezed in so tight that they surround her like ominous sentinels. She can’t breathe in the city. Her success is a lie, and her debt is coming to collect her — unless someone else gets there first.
When a stranger offers her a job at a ranch, it feels like salvation, but it could also mean her death if his motives aren’t pure. Which door has the tiger behind it? The claustrophobia of the city or ranch life under an open sky?
What Readers And Authors Are Saying
If you love to walk on the darker side of romance, this is the collection for you. It includes three of Kitty’s darker and more depraved titles. Themes of captivity, ownership, kidnapping, and lack of consent are plentiful in these pages. Whether you enjoy a broken billionaire, a depraved farmer, or a dark menage, you’ll find it in here. Dark psychological romance at its best!” – Darkreads, Goodreads
Kitty Thomas is by far my favorite dark romance author. She writes very intriguing stories with very full characters and interesting plots.She takes you to places you don’t want to go, but in the end, you love her for it. Her stories are twisted and go to places you weren’t expecting. I forget how I stumbled upon Comfort Food the first time, but once I finished it, I had to know what else this person was writing. I’ve sense read everything she’s written and I’m always looking for the next story.” – Melanie, Goodreads
This bundle is like my top 3 books EVER. if you like dark romance and haven’t read any of the titles in this, what are you doing?! i looove kitty’s dark stuff – it was comfort food that got me into the genre in the first place and now i pretty much exclusively read dark romance.” – Tasha, Goodreads
