From USA Today Bestselling author KL Donn comes the Adair Empire spin-off series, Adair Legacy. Tortured Duchess is the second standalone book in this all-new dark romance series.

Hadley Adair has lived a life of near perfection. Nothing bad has ever happened to her. And the guilt of that is nearly enough to swallow her whole. She watched her friends get broken down until they were mere shells of themselves. Hadley has always been the shoulder to cry on, the strong friend. The one to fight everyone's battles.

So why, when she meets a sexy as sin nightclub owner does she expect the worst to happen?

Ashton DeMarco is a self made man. When he sees something he wants, he doesn't hesitate to acquire it. Like the hot little number who grabbed a guy by the balls and made him piss his pants in one of Ashton's clubs. From the minute her glare lasers through him, Ashton is hooked.

There isn't a person alive who could scare him off claiming Hadley Adair. Not her criminal family and not her brash attitude. But when his past comes back to bite him in the ass, for the first time in his life, Ashton feels true fear at the possibility he could lose Hadley before he's rightfully claimed her.

From USA Today Bestselling author KL Donn comes the third book in the Adair Empire, a dark romance series.

Adopted to the Adair name as a young adult, Castiel Adair is loyal to one man and one man only – King. When King requests that he find those responsible for the near destruction of the Empire, Castiel finds himself wading through the swampy marshes of Louisiana. He remains in the shadows…watching, calculating, evaluating the right time to strike. Until he discovers a girl looking for a way out.

Talia Andersson wasn’t about to be a pawn in her father’s game, but she needed help. She wasn’t expecting that help to come in the form of the most intense and gorgeous man she’d ever seen. But she knew in choosing the enemy of her father to be her lover, was her only choice. Rescued only to be stolen again, Talia ends up bloodied, broken and left for dead.

Cas goes on a rampage in search of Talia all the while eliminating every threat from his new conquest’s life. With his brand marking her soul and only a few leads as to where she could be, will he find her before her time is up?  More importantly: can the Adair Empire last another fight against the McCray Clan, or will they be laid to rest?

The Adair Empire is a dark, graphic, romance series, with more triggers than I can list. Proceed with caution.
