Publisher Description

“Oh, Lia, you never challenge a man like me. I promise you; you’ll do everything I want you to do and beg for more."

My name is Lucian Quinn and I own one of the most successful software companies in the world. I’m twenty-nine, rich and single. Impressive right? I’m also a favorite target for every hungry socialite looking to land the uncatchable catch. Maybe it sounds vain, but the fact that I’m a God between the sheets doesn’t hurt my stock any. What these women don’t know though is that I’m completely screwed up and damaged beyond repair by my past. The only part of me I’ll ever willingly give them is the hour it takes to make them scream…several times.

Then I saw her…

I’m Lia Adams and I’m in my last year at St. Claire’s University in North Carolina. I grew up with an abusive mother, and a twisted stepfather who was worse…so much worse. I’m so close to escaping from my past and making my dreams come true. I’ll do anything necessary to survive, even work as an escort to help pay for my college expenses. The men that I accompany to various events as an escort for Date Night are mostly harmless and just want an attractive woman on their arm for an evening. It has never gone further than that…until him…

Circumstances bring two people that should have never crossed paths together and in the days and weeks ahead, they grow close quickly, each seeing a kindred soul in the other. As ghosts from their past rise to haunt them, they cling to each other as their lives start to spiral out of control. Soon, they realize that they’re both damaged possibly beyond repair. Will their love be what saves or destroys them?

This book is meant for mature readers who are 18+. It contains explicit language, and graphic sexual content.

**Book 1 of the Lucian & Lia Trilogy.**

Awesome book

OMG what an amazing book this was. Finished it in one day could not put the book down. This book is totally hot 🔥. If you like sex scenes you will love this book. You have two people who both are broken from their past and fall in love. The book does leave you waiting with a cliffhanger. I highly recommend this book.

Great story....

Enjoyed reading such different types of background stories for Lucian and Lia. Couldn’t wait to start reading books two and three. 👍🏽👍🏽

I had stubbles upon Sydney Landon books. Am working my way through the Danvers series and while waiting on the next one to come available at my library I started reading Pierced. I was hooked on the first chapter! Had to force myself to put the book down so I could get sleep. I just wish I was able to access my Apple Books at work cause it drove me insane not being to know what happens next. I will agree with the other readers that the cliffhanger endings drive you insane but it also makes you want to dive right into the second book. I can’t wait to see what happens with Luc and Lia.
