Charlotte couldn't escape … from the prison Raymond put her in or from the dark love she found with him. Especially when she realized that the darkness was inside her too... Charlotte: I ran away from my crap life of stripping and living with my father in a trash heap of a trailer. I thought I was headed toward freedom but I woke up in another prison. A prison that was built just for me. He knows things about me that no one should. He sees things in me that I can’t see. I don’t want to be here. But I don’t want to leave him either. He’s a monster for keeping me prisoner. But I’m a monster too for loving the dark, dirty things he does to me. Raymond: I know I messed up. I’ve been alone in this house for far too long. Alone except the servants that skulk around in the darkness. But then I found Charlotte and I had to have her. I had to take her. I have to make her mine. Now I don’t want to live without her. But if I can’t convince her to stay … they won’t let either one of us live. Dark Love is a dark romance that contains dark sexual themes and is 40k words in length.
