His name was Joshua Carter. Now it's whatever she wants it to be.
She is a Deliverer.
She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price.
As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold.
Delivering is all she knows.
The one thing she can't deliver is a captive from slavery.
And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her...from herself.
Stand Alone (no cliff-hanger). The sequel is coming Summer 2014.

Shock has a way of rousing attention.
It’s official. Pam Godwin has become one of my go-to authors. I LOVED her previous book, Beneath the Burn, and was anxious to read her next novel. This did not disappoint. The premise of the story is unique and very intriguing; there was no way I could pass it up.
She trained them. She delivered them. And after?
They were dead to her. They had to be.
Liv, at first glance, seemed like complicated character. She’s gritty, badass, and has a don’t-fuck-with-me attitude. But beneath that armor lays a woman with a simple mission: Keep her mother and daughter safe. In order to do so, she must play her role as a deliverer. She hunts, takes, trains and then delivers. That’s the only way to ensure their safety. So far, she’s been able to live this way, until her next captive, Joshua Carter, completely changes the game.
He was the strength and heart of the most dangerous jump. He was the soul of bravery wrapped in chains. He would never fall, no matter how much metal weighted him down. He was a man who loved selflessly and honestly, and she was taking him to a monster who would slice him open and fuck the incision.
Joshua Carter’s life was paved with rules, religion, and beliefs. He’s the epitome of the good-ole-wholesome boy next door. To Liv, he met all the requirements the next buyer wanted. She knew taking Josh was a risk, especially since he was a very well known football star, but she had no choice.
Josh was tricked and the next thing he knew, the life he knew was stripped away. He was now in the hands of Liv. His future unknown. What he didn’t expect is to connect with his beautiful captor. He knows there’s more to Liv’s story than what she presents. He won’t make it easy on her and is determined to find the inevitable crack her armor.
Her fingers grabbed the hair on the back of his head and yanked, exposing his neck. Her lips caressed his ear, and his penis throbbed. “Stop. Grinding. Your dick.” She released him a shove. “Kinky fucker.”
I was going into this wondering, “how in the hell is this situation going to work?” It seemed the story was cut and dry and that both the H/h were stuck between a rock and hard place.
Boy, was I Wrong.
This story had a lot of twists and surprises. It amazed me that the plot was so mercifully crafted to make this a very engaging read. I wanted to know how the author was going to make this situation work. I was constantly on the edge of my seat. I will warn you, there were a lot of cringe-worthy-creep-the-hell-out-of-me moments (i.e. I will never look at a potato sack nor a wooden coffin and not be freaked out ever again), but the story wouldn’t have had the same effect without it. I had complete faith that Ms. Godwin would deliver a fantastically dark story, and Deliver she did.
