A taste of this dark tale of obsession, beauty, and lust… FREE! Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Amazon Bestseller Vivian Wood writes dark romance as OLIVIA RYANN. 

I meet her in a wedding dress, walking down the aisle towards my sworn enemy. 
Our eyes catch from across the room. And monster that I am, I know I have to have her. 
Not just because she is precious to my sworn enemy… but also because her wide blue eyes tell me things. 
That she’s afraid of me. 
That she’s even more afraid of my enemy. 
That she’ll do almost anything to escape him. 
I seize on her fear. 
I abduct her, while she’s screaming and fighting me. 
And that’s when our story begins.

Wow!  Olivia Ryann has done it again.  Knocked my socks off, then 
 left me hanging and begging for more.  Please hurry up and publish Punish.

This book is the next chapter of the Aetós brothers’ 
story.  Even though you don’t have to read the first of the brothers’ story, Cherish series, I would recommend it.  That way you can understand and feel the story’s impact better.

Dryas is a murderer.  He has a dark evil soul, because of all the murders he has committed for the mafia.  They don’t bother him.  But when he killed his brother Arsen, now that one…that one is eating him up inside.  With guilt.  With rage.  With regret.  Things he does not have room for in his quest for revenge.  Revenge to kill Father Derrick for taking his one love away and killing her.

Rue is to be married to a prince.  She is looking forward to getting out of the convent and starting a new life.  Life that is not with Father Derrick.  But when she finds that the new life is not going to be what she thinks, she is determined to escape.

This book is a prequel to the Protect series and let me tell you it’s a dozy.  It will grab your attention and hook you.  Just like with the Cherish series it will hook you and leave you hanging.  Yep!  This book is a cliff hanger.  Olivia is real good at cliff hangers.  This book is hard to put down and progresses quickly.  You will not lose any interest in this story.  I promise you will be begging for more at the end.  So get in, buckle up and get ready for a ride.  This book is a blast off for an excellent series to come.  Make sure you grab the book, you will not want to miss out.

About Olivia Ryann

Olivia Ryann is the dark romance pen name of Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Amazon Top 20 Bestseller Vivian Wood. She loves poetic phrases and bits of melodic memories. She adores dominant, hard men and soft, fragile women with backbones made of steel. She wants to put them together as often as possible, in unconventional ways.
