BLURB

Dear Captor,

You’ve stolen me.
You’ve spilled my blood.
You’ve brought me pain.
But what you’re yet to realize... I’m a fighter.
I’ve been broken before.
I’ve even at one point lost the will to live.
So now you know… this information I gift to you.
I’m ready for you, so do your worst.

Sincerely,

Elenore

Shelly's Review:I have to say I was impressed with this new to me author's book. I've been stepping outside of my comfort zone as of late and wanted to read a book I normally shy away from. This story held my interest and I do have a few theories as the author laid out ground work nicely. I'm curious to see how this series develops and hopefully we can get more backstory on "Captor" as I feel he plays a part in Elenore's past. With never reading anything by this author I do like her style of writing and the way the story flowed. I didn't care for one of the interactions with the detective, Roman, but I'm curious to see where their budding relationship heads. I'm eagerly anticipating the next book in this series and hopefully we can get more answers.

Lourdes Review:
Elenore Burrow has always lived a hard life.  Abuse has been her companion from an early age and it has just made her stronger.  When it seems like her life is taking a turn for the best, she’s taken by a serial killer and will find herself on the verge of being broken.
This short story is the beginning of a series depicting Elenore’s ordeal.  I really enjoyed the simplicity of the author’s style and the telling of the character’s past and present dilemmas, but found myself a little frustrated with the interactions with the detective.
Other than that, this was a nice start and I’m really looking forward to the upcoming installments of this story.

Excerpt:

Prologue

What’s in a name?
Usually, parents name their children with a special kind of love in their hearts. Not mine though. They didn’t want me, or at least, that’s what they kept telling me. They only ever wanted to inflict pain. I was nobody until the woman next door gave me the lovely name Elenore. She cared for me when my own parents didn’t or wouldn’t.
Every single day I wished to be taken away from what I endured. Anywhere would have been good. I would have sold my soul to the devil himself back then, and I’d willingly do it now. Give my living essence to breathe, to live on. My entire childhood was a survival story, and now I have another.
So much blood. Everywhere I look, there are dark pools of solidified blood stuck to the walls, the floor—my entire cell is covered. The girls who came before me are no more. Their stories are over. It was gruesome, the stuff of your nightmares.
Not me, though—he kept me.
One letter changed my destiny of certain death. It was never in me to give up easily. I’ve always been a fighter. He never saw me coming, and he never knew my strength. He was not what I expected either.
His strength.
His calmness.
Or his kindness.
He was my captor . . .
