Release Date: December 16, 2014
Anger and pain brought them together, but their passion might just set them free.
Dimitri wants only one thing: revenge. His stepfather, Hendrix, has caused him nothing but pain and heartache. At last Dimitri can take something—someone—important to Hendrix and make him pay: Jess.
Jess is feisty and strong headed. Her past haunts her and connects her to the dangerously dark Dimitri in an unexpected way. Dimitri keeps his secrets locked deep inside, and Jess is drawn to this broken man like no one before.
With little to cling to besides their haunting pasts, both could have been doomed to lives spent raging against the darkness that holds them prisoner. Instead, it seems that as their pain draws them closer together, it is their desire that will set them free.

This book, I am not even sure how to write the review up! It’s so different from anything I have ever read before, I am not even sure what category I would place it in.
Jess (aka Blaire) is running from her past. She killed her stepfather and is hiding with pirates who have become her family. When she is kidnapped by the Captains stepson as revenge, will she be able to hold onto herself and stay strong until she can be rescued?
Dimitri, the step son of the Captain whose ship Jess lives on, has kidnapped her as an act of revenge. He wants nothing more than to kill his stepfather and believes Jess is the way to draw him out. Will he be able to see past his revenge and see the person Jess really is?
These two, wow. I am usually not a fan of a switching POV, but it really worked in this book. Bella did a FANTASTIC job with the character development and it shows.
I really loved this book. I will admit, with my head hung in shame, that I have not read much by Bella Jewel. That changed today. I loved her writing style and how the story kept flowing. I just wish it was longer, because I really didn’t want their story to end!
