Everyone has a dark side..,

Dark Captive is an exclusive collection of dark erotic romance stories featuring alpha men with fierce sexual appetites. They'll stop at nothing to get what they want. And they have their sights on one man. Possessive and bold, these heroes give their conquests exactly what they crave—to be taken … to be owned. Any resistance offered will be tested, but in the end love rules.

Kidnapping, abduction, and sexual slavery are just a few of the titillating taboo themes in this hand-picked manlove anthology.

Dark Captive is a multi authored darker MM anthology with some rough and gritty stories inside. Ransomed by Doris O'Connor, Collecting his Debt by Angelique Voisen, I Love the Way You Hurt Me by James Cox, Shanghai by Pelaam, Taken by Michelle Graham, Get Off Hard by Lea Bronsen, Uninvited love by L.J. Longo, and Runner by Kai Tyler. All are really well written and well done stories. In this review I am going to pick out just a couple I liked as to not give away all the secrets inside of this anthology.
Collecting His Debt by Angelique Voisen. Well I would read anything Ms. Voisen wrote so I can safely say I am a huge fangirl of hers. In this book we have Carter he is a very sweet character who has a darkness in him too. He is going into a trap and James cannot help himself he has to save him, but can he keep the man he loves? What kind of world could a rich boy and a cleaner be in love? I liked this one a lot it is gritty and rough. Just like James. I also liked the connection the characters have, that is what kept me reading and cheering. Very engaging and hot sex does not hurt either.
The next story I would say for me stood out is a new to me author.Get Off Hard by Lea Bronsen . In this story we have two hot hockey players who cannot decide if they want to kill each other or well be between the sheets with each other. Their story has many layers to it. One is a rookie who has had a rough time of it. He needs to have faith again. The other is a pro who has a ton of past pain he is carrying around. These two could have had a much longer story, I did feel this short was just a beginning for them. Loved the connection and the whole story itself for this one.
Over all this anthology is edgy and a little dark. But if you like your men rough and tough this is the anthology for you.

Thanks for reviewing our anthology! The hockey player story was a terrific one but I can't take the credit for that one. It was Get Off Hard by Lea Bronsen.
