By Tara Leigh
Release Date March 25
Tara Leigh is phenomenal. This dark romance has everything you would want in this genre. Damon King, hot alpha-blooded male, arrogant, demanding, sexy as sin and Aislinn Granville, sassy, feisty, stubborn, a don’t fck with me kind of woman. Talk about a match made in heaven/hell.
“…no one — not even the devil himself — will clip my wings.”
Beneath Damon’s hard exterior, he has a soft spot only Aislinn, pure of heart could see. 😍
“…I see the light in you. And it’s beautiful.”
The chemistry between the two is so sexy, hot and is pure fire!
“It is sustenance and sanctuary. It is the wages of sin, the hand of god.”
Cruel Sanctuary is filled with violence, corruption, betrayal and is super intense, it will have you on the edge of your seat. Corrupt Savior can’t come quick enough! I need answers!
“I am a monster, the devil to her angel.”
Cruel Sanctuary is dark and gritty with just a hint of love and sweetness hidden beneath the depths of corruption and darkness.
“Damon King is my lord and liege. My captor and savior.”
Tara has gone and done it. Got me hooked like a drug addict feening for their next hit. I can’t wait for book 2 as Tara leaves us hanging with that cliffy. Hurry up and give me my fix! Lol
“I don’t love. I destroy.”

They say New York City is the Devil’s Playground.
This city belongs to me.
And so does Aislinn Granville.
She is a pampered politician’s daughter.
A decorative ornament,
raised to smile and nod and do what she’s told.
Except… she doesn’t. Not with me. Ever.
In this city full of thugs and thieves, I’ve kept Aislinn safe.
From my enemies.
“Put me down.” I keep my cool, making the demand as stiffly as if I’m asking him to pass the salt.
But my show of composure crumbles as he angles his head to look at me. Barely an inch separates the tips of our noses. I stare, entranced by the fine scar that marks his left eyebrow. I want to kiss it.
One corner of his mouth tics up, his eyes flicking away from mine. “You look damn good in my arms.”
I follow his stare and am met by our reflection in the bathroom mirror. I blink, taking in the sight of my naked body held against King’s broad chest, the tanned, inked forearms I’d practically drooled over earlier now wrapped around my back and behind my knees.
I am naked. King is dressed.
There is something indecently erotic about our image. I look like the heroine of an old Harlequin novel—a down on her luck maid or secretary about to be ravished by her big, bad boss. A powerless woman soon to be stripped of her virtue.
I know what it’s like when a man overpowers a woman. When he uses force to take what’s not his. To hurt and abuse and terrorize.
And I know that this isn’t that.
It may not look like it, but I have the power in this situation. Damon King came to me. First at my apartment and now in his. He broke down two doors tonight.
I may be naked, but the only reason he’s touching me is because he knows I want him to.
Emboldened, I look away from our reflection and directly into King’s eyes again. Leaning in, I brush the tip of my nose against his. “Kiss me.”
I’ve barely pushed the words out when his lips are on mine. The taste of him is an explosion inside my mouth. Smooth and potent, but with a hint of mint. As if he swilled some of that Balvenie from his bar and then sucked on a peppermint candy.
He kisses like a conqueror. Stealing my breath along with the last of my reservations.
He kisses like a king. Staking his claim, demanding his due.
