Acquired Possession (Machinery of Desire 1) by Cari Silverwood

Cari1

The night Emery is taken she is reading emails in bed.
Aerthe, another world, the world of the Swathe, the moving cities of the Mekkers.

Blind on arrival and naked. No one touches her until the Mekkers decide humans aren’t people, and therefore can be bought and traded. The journey through the portal alters humans, shines them all pretty. Humans glimmer.

Emery’s bright hair and nails will forever mark her as alien. Her freedom is gone. Though her sight returns, she becomes a possession of House Oren.

But someone else wants to own her, the House Master, Mako, a man who uses whips and canes like most people use a knife – daily, with efficiency and casualness.

She vows to never give in.

Banned from marrying. Banned from having played too intimately with the house possessions, Mako holds himself back.
He mustn’t. Shouldn’t. His job is to punish, to control, to keep the House in order.

But when Emery runs and takes with her a most dangerous war machine, one not seen since the Last Days of the War… Mako is the man they turn to.

To chase her down. To bring her back, lamed, dead, or mostly alive.

If you like your sci-fi romance dark and twisted, the Acquired Possession is the book for you! Cari Silverwood is the queen of dark romance, and this book just proves it. The first book in the Machinery of Desire series will make you shiver in delicious, dark, erotic delight!

Our heroine Emery finds herself transported to Aerthe, and there she meets Mako, a man as mean and cruel as the shark he’s named after. She’s made his slave by proclamation from the king, and when she mouths off to him, she ends up with a very public and painful humiliating punishment. Emery reminds Mako of his dead girlfriend Shea, which angers him. He plans to break her, and he certainly tries very hard to do so. But Emery is a strong woman, even when they take her blood for the life-giving benefits for Mako’s people, a couple of brutal punishments by Mako’s boss and the king, and by Mako himself.

There are some truly cringe-worthy scenes in this book, but that to me is the sign of a great dark romance. The ones where I definitely need to read a few sappy romances in between. Cari just delivers the goods as usual!

Author:

Just a subbie, and an author who loves books, especially the kinky ones. I've been reading since I could hold a book and I have a voracious appetite for them. I have that dreaded disease, oneclickitis. I probably have at least 5500 books just on my Kindle alone.I am also a writer and I'm currently writing my first book, which is the first in a planned series.
