MADELEINE, ABDUCTED (The Estate #1)
A Dark, Erotic novel
She was meant to be his destruction…
father and son…
Yet, her strength was more than either
man could imagine.
As Maddy learns to save herself…
She becomes the one thing that could
set the son free.
Madeleine Clark was raised to become a concert cellist. Sheltered and naïve, she remains hidden behind her music, a protection from the world around her. On the night of her first solo performance, Maddy accepts the admiration of a stranger and finds herself captive in a cruel and twisted power struggle between a sadistic father and his son, Aaron.
Seemingly, dangerous and uncaring, Aaron manages the business operations of his father’s estate. Wanting nothing to do with the slaves kept at the Estate, Aaron refuses to take part in the deeper depravities of his father. Despite his resistance, Aaron’s father ‘gifts’ him with a petite, brunette woman he can’t refuse.
A bond forged in conspiracy and deceit, Aaron struggles to save Maddy by teaching her to survive in the world in which he’d been raised. An unlikely union, Aaron soon learns that great strengths can exist within small packages, while Madeleine learns that love and light can exist in the darkest of places.
Finding her voice, Maddy spoke out of turn, not thinking about the repercussions her words could elicit. “I would prefer you call me by my name.” She peaked up at him through her lashes. “Maddy, I would prefer that you call me Maddy.”

Madeleine, Abducted is one of those books that you almost feel dirty reading and enjoying, but at the end you don't care what it says about yourself because the story was just that damn good (messed up and very disturbing, but good). This story won't be for everyone, it was violent, raw, degrading, intense but more than that, it is a powerful story that will leave you reeling. M.S. Willis is a fantastic writer, I have read and enjoyed all of her books and I truly believe this woman can create stories that will linger on your mind and in your heart for days (if not weeks) afterwards. Her talent at story-telling is amazing.
Madeleine, Abducted will not be for everyone. This book goes beyond a dark, erotic novel and explores depravity, rape and power hungry men mixed with insanity and violence. There were points that I even cringed (and that takes a lot!) and almost had to stop reading to take a break from the all the turmoil. I know, it sounds bad but when you get past the dark you see the lightness shining out from this story and you get to experience how one woman can change the people around her and eventually, an entire network.
M.S. Willis proves to me me, again, that she is a master at story-telling; she creates strong characters and describes such brutal circumstances so realistically that you almost forget you are reading a book not watching a movie. What is most fascinating about Madeleine, Abducted is that it wraps you up so completely in a dark story, but gives you glimpses of moments so beautifully touching that you can't help but become lost in this world craving more lightness. I found myself stunned, shocked, horrified and hopeful many times during this story. It takes talent to take such a dark tale with characters that are drowning in evil and make the reader root for them, hoping that they will be able to find their way out of all the darkness, and M.S. Willis has this talent.
This is definitely a story you need to read without being spoiled, so I am not going to talk about the characters or plot. If you can handle dark, erotic novels with a level of violence that are typically found in horror books, then I highly recommend Madeleine, Abducted. M.S. Willis is an instant buy author for me and with this new series it still proves true; I will read (and truly enjoy) anything she writes. Go 1-click Maddy and see what really happens behind the doors at The Estate.
