    Fantastic

    A captivating story of revenge, forbidden love, and best laid plans getting completely blown up. This fourth book in the Circle of Nines series is easily read standalone while it is still connected with the other books in the series, the characters are not as entwined as they were in the prior books. Once Zane "Elijah" Hunter had it all. A beautiful loving wife and a life full of promise. That was all stripped away from him and after seven long years revenge is within reach. After kidnapping the daughter of the man responsible for the ruin of his life, Elijah quickly discovers she's not exactly what he was expecting and revenge may not be as sweet as he once thought. Elijah and Violet have a connection that is intense, powerful, and erotic. Who will have the ultimate revenge?? Definitely a book I recommend.

    Love all these Alpha guys

    Oh gosh, I think I'm a little bit in love with Elijah. And Violet is so perfect, getting into the gooey goodness hidden beneath that hard heartless exterior. I loved Zac and Eva's book but this one is too good. The broken man, single-mindedly set on revenge actually does something so unexpected it makes you pause. Elijah sure knows the meaning of the word "sacrifice". As for Violet, I just wanted to hug her and hide her under my mother hen wings. And poor Gabe, his life was a living nightmare for a while but then I guess he did the brotherly thing in the end. Can't wait for the next one. ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

    Revenge was running through his veins!!!

    He MUST get his revenge but someone has stolen it. Elijah's waited on this for seven years. There are two men who deserve his wrath. One is dead and he must kidnap a certain woman to flush out the remaining man. Only he wasn't prepared for his reaction to the woman he thought he already knew. Action packed romantic suspense! I could feel the cold fury running through Elijah. His anger felt alive, especially after Eva killed his mark. As angry as he was, I was taken by surprise by his eventual reaction to Violet. There's a HUGE plot twist that again, took me totally by surprise. The story line is magnificent! Very emotional and VERY sexy! I love the writing style of this author. Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

    exciting erotic thriller!

    This is the fourth book in the Nine Circles series, best read in order as there is a story arc that continues from book 1, though each in the series has a standalone couple romance. It's an exciting, erotic, suspenseful series, and the trend is definitely continued with this one! I can always count on Ms. Ashenden to bring her A game into everything she writes, and that's the case here. She is somehow able to make the cold and ruthless character of Elijah (a secondary character in previous books clearly following his own agenda) into an empathetic hero. Of course, that's because until now, we didn't know Elijah's motivation for working for a man we knew to be a monster. But now that the truth has been revealed, that his wife was murdered and he has been on this path of revenge for years, it makes his actions much more palatable. I really liked seeing underneath his icy surface, to the heart of him, the one that only Violet has been able to expose. So while Elijah initially comes across as cold and unfeeling, it's not long before we see the truth - that those are the aspects of his personality that are visible to the naked eye. He's a tough, physically scarred man, with an equally scarred heart, and it was very emotionally satisfying to see Violet repairing some of that damage. Violet herself knows what it's like to wear a mask of indifference. She's played up the role of spoiled society girl as a way of masking the hurt of never feeling accepted or loved by her parents. The death of her father, and her subsequent kidnapping barely ripple the surface of her mother's concern, and Violet's fear of no-one even realizing she's gone missing causes her to look inward for strength. Her attempts at escape don't work, but they do succeed in making Elijah take a closer look at her - a look that reveals his desire to subdue this woman in any way he can, even if it means using their attraction against her. What results are some steamy erotic scenes between them as they connect physically, leading to an emotional connection that angers Elijah as it threatens to wreck all his plans. But Violet won't be subdued, and as the story plays out, she becomes no longer a captive but an accomplice. The characters from the first three books are integral here as well, as Honor is one of Violet's few friends (and contrary to Violet's concerns, realizes that she is missing and is looking for her), and there are more surprising connections between the Nine Circles members and Violet herself. Violet must make some tough decisions when faced with the choice of whose side to choose, and in turn Elijah must do the same. It's an exciting and suspenseful read, full of action and sex, and a fabulous addition to the series. We do get a happy ending for Violet and Elijah, but we are left with some unanswered questions that will lead into the next story. 5 stars!

    Kidnapped by the Billionaire

    Seven years ago, he lost everything and Elijah Hunt wants revenge but when he kidnaps the daughter of the man who ruined his life, he gets way more than he bargained for in this exciting contemporary romance. Violet never thought she would feel a connection to her captor but there’s something beneath that steel bodied exterior that calls to her and the readers can’t help but get caught up in the tension and fireworks that explode when Elijah finds himself wondering if he’s in control or has Violet imprisoned him body and soul. Their attraction has some pretty heated sparks flying in every direction which adds to the fireworks of this relationship that is full of secrets, emotional turmoil and revenge and these strong compelling characters have no problem drawing readers into their story and gripping their hearts with the turbulence that stems from the past as well as what is happening in the present in this steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot full of suspense, excitement, turmoil and romance. The story immediately grips readers with the spine tingling certainty that something big is about to happen and anticipation keeps the tension building as Violet and Elijah struggle with their unwanted desires while in a very intense situation. The scenes are well written and bring the story to life while the intriguing events ensure that the readers are hooked until the very end with unexpected twists adding a few surprises along the way. I found myself wondering what I would do in this type of situation because I could certainly empathize with the characters and yes, down and dirty is certainly the way to go in this instance but the story is also about overcoming some serious emotional hang-ups that have taken control of both of these characters. This is the first story that I have read in this series and the author provided enough information throughout that I had no trouble picking up what the series is about, although I definitely feel as if I have missed out on a lot, so I will be taking care of that.
