Hold - Claire Kent


Gritty stark erotic romance that hit all the right buttons! Riana is thrust in an underground prison, after being found guilty of trespassing during an archeological dig. To survive she has to partner up with a man who can field off dangerous convicts who have no qualms in raping and killing her. Her instincts lead her to trust a man called Cain who has the only working cell and he may have a plan to escape.

This was soooo good. I was in the mood of something dark and atmospheric and I enjoyed a few of Kent's books. But this is her first foray in SF romance and she created a fantastic gritty and claustrophobic tone. The romance grows slowly and the erotic elements adds to their relationship. I really hope she writes more in this world!
