I have a mission. Kill the man who kidnapped me. Kill the guards who raped me. I have guns and knives and I’m not afraid to use them. Nothing will stop me.

Then I walk into a bar and I notice him. He is gorgeous. For four long years, my only response to anything sexual has been revulsion and fear.This time, it feels different.

I could use him. I want to use him. I could sleep with him and make a pleasurable memory as a counterpoint to the painful ones. I’m not a frightened young girl anymore. I’m a trained assassin, capable of killing him with my bare hands.

This time, I’ll be in control.

He’s just supposed to be a distraction, this mysterious man in the bar that I have a one-night stand with. But I can’t predict the secrets he is hiding… secrets that are about to intersect my world in painful, unanticipated, and dangerous ways.

Smutsonian Exclusive!
A sneak Peek at Found:

Alexander / Marc:

She was beautiful, the redhead who burst into the bar, slightly out of breath, but that wasn’t what I noticed right off the bat. What stood out about her was her confidence.

The bar I was in was, at best, disreputable. But she walked in absolutely unafraid. She stood just inside the doorway, head held high, looking around for a seat.

Women who didn’t need me to take care of them were my kryptonite. The more confident they were and the more capable, the sweeter the victory when they surrendered their cares at the entrance to my bedroom. Or in my dungeon, if they were inclined to play that way.

The room had grown steadily more crowded as the evening had passed and now, the only empty stool was the one next to me. Not by chance; I’d been saving it for Jean-Luc in case he came back. All evening, I’d been glaring at every single drunk that lurched past, looking for a place to sit. Now, I threw Jean-Luc under the bus quite happily as the woman came up to the vacant spot.

“Is this seat taken?” she asked in French.

I shook my head. “American?” I asked her in English. “You are in a sketchy neighborhood for a tourist.”

Truth was, while some of my comment was based on observation, a lot of it was just a lucky guess. If she was a woman who lived in the neighborhood, she wouldn’t have come into this particular bar so fearlessly. Fights broke out here often. There wasn’t anything by way of food. It was just a place for old lonely men to while away some time before they went home to their wives. And she’d had the faintest trace of an accent, something only a native French speaker would be able to pick up. The American part was a complete stab in the dark though.

Her green eyes shot fire at me. “I speak fluent French,” she replied icily. “I hate when people switch to English. It’s condescending and rude.”

My lips twitched; my cock stirred in my trousers. Feisty women were so much fun. “My apologies,” I said. I didn’t even try to keep the amusement out of my voice. “Can I buy you a drink to make up for the condescension and the rudeness?”

She grinned. “That has to be the poorest attempt at repentance I’ve seen in a while.” She gave me a look, took in the custom-made suit, the expensive watch, all the trappings of wealth. “Pot calling the kettle black, Monsieur? Judging by how you are dressed, you are just as out of place as I am.”

“I’m a thief,” I told her. “The clothes are stolen. And please, call me Marc.”

About the Author:

Website | FacebookTwitter | Goodreads

Hello, I’m Tara Crescent. By day, I’m a mild-mannered corporate drone in Toronto, but by night, I’m limited only by my imagination; I sit and I type, and I am a daring writer of BDSM, erotica and romance.

I’m a huge believer in happily-ever-after, but tempered by real life, where happily-ever-after is possible, but takes work.  My favorite kind of romance stories are ones that are somewhat believable; I like strong men and women who know what they want out of life, and are driven to get it.

In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, travel, cook, and almost never clean. I just started watching Walking Dead on Netflix (zombie erotica, anyone?), and I’m impatiently awaiting the next episode of Doctor Who. (I would kill for a TARDIS.)

From time to time, I blog about what I’m writing at my blog. The blog is also where I post book excerpts; highlight information about upcoming promotions, and so on and so forth. Follow me there to keep up with all the fun! (Oh, and sign up for my mailing list – I send out free stories every month or so.
