The Lotus Keeper: Book 1

All Rights Reserved ©


Addy is drawn into a frightening new world she never knew existed when a dangerous cartel leader takes her. Will he win her heart or break her soul? "I believed he was pulling me into a world of darkness, but I’ve come to realize he was showing me the light—a light that illuminated the most unimaginable evil." "The Lotus Keeper" follows the story of Adeline Heed, a sweet and innocent, young woman who is forcefully taken by a dangerous drug cartel leader and pulled into a world in which she never thought existed. As she struggles to break free from her captor, she learns that he isn't the only one holding her back, forcing her to adapt, yield and awake a rawness inside if she's ever going to survive. Hart, the man responsible for her capture, isn’t at all what she imagined. He’s controlling, observant, and dangerous. He demands obedience, set on breaking her down, shaping her into submission but despite his efforts, he's met his match. The longer Hart holds her captive, the stronger she becomes. She's witty and quick and she's intent on doing what no other has done before--unravel the mysteries behind the green eyed man. Will Addy break him before he breaks her? Can she survive him?

Chapter One: Another One Bites

Author’s Note Aug 1 2019:

First off, I would like to thank all of my readers, devoted followers, and lovers of the Dark Romance/Thriller genre. It was because of your kinds words and enthusiasm towards The Lotus Series that I was propelled into publishing.

The day has finally come! The Lotus Keeper (Book 1) and The Lotus Key (Book 2) are available on Amazon as an ebook.

Because of Copyright laws, the Inkitt version has been taken down, but you can still read the polished version on Amazon for 2.99 or free if you have Kindle Unlimited. As of right now, you can read the first few chapters for free on Amazon. I apologize but due to Amazon Direct Publishing rules, I can no longer have the book o an excerpt on Inkitt.

Thanks again everyone :)
