Two couples and some of their closest friends sit in the semi-darkened living room expectantly watching the flat screen TV. The chatter in the room hushes as the familiar news logo dominates the screen and the voice of the announcer introduces the host of the show.
“Your host this evening is CNN news anchor, Walkerton Bradley.”
The news anchor begins a story of terror abuse suspense and… love.
He introduces the central figure of the story, Allison Anderson. Even though they have all lived it, the small audience watches anxiously as Allison’s tale of fear, and suffering, both mental and physical makes them shudder all over again. How she lived under the control of her vicious employer/boyfriend, despite his involvement in illegal activities and his totally amoral attitude towards women in general and Allison in particular.
They hear the all too familiar sequence of events—how Allison’s newfound best friend convinces her to leave her slave master and helps her make her escape. However, Allison soon realizes she has a new challenge of trying to stay out of the grasp of her brutal tormentor who is determined to get her back.
In the midst of all the uncertainty and apprehension, she meets Heath Barton. At first she finds him bossy and overbearing but eventually comes to realize that his emotions and feelings run deep indeed.
As difficult as it is for her to believe, she soon discovers that his Alpha tendencies and his take-charge attitude are destined to help her get through the most difficult period of her life. She also finds that your age has nothing to with falling in love or having uninhibited intimacy with your true love, feelings that had been previously foreign to her.
You’re sure to find D. T. Mann’s latest novel, “Escape from Evil” a welcome addition to your library.
Rikki Reagan wants no part of men thanks to her drunken father. He makes her feel like a nothing and a nobody. He forces her mother to run away and when she can, Rikki does too. Her self image is so low that when she meets Steven Legend, a man who arouses her interest for the first time, and because she is a virgin, she offers to pay him to have sex with her. Eventually, he shows her his dominant side and reveals his different lifestyle to her. Rather surprisingly, the fact that she is a virgin takes him somewhat out of his alpha male persona.
She experiences many things for the first time in her life: Phone sex, Spankings (that have love and sex as part of their make-up), conflicting feelings of fear of being dominated and enjoying the comfort of Steven's controlling and caring nature. A series of misunderstandings leads to a life threatening accident. Steven is heartbroken and his controlling side rails against not being able to order the hospital staff to do what he wants.
Conflict, danger, plenty of love and a story that will evoke empathy from every reader, That's Legend and a Photographer but it's not the end for Steven and Rikki.
Two more books follow: The Legend Continues and The Legend Complete.
Life gets complicated for Steven and Rikki. The story begins with their almost fairy-tale wedding. It’s a great celebration with family and friends and appears to be the beginning of a beautiful life together for them. It does, however, bring with it some unforeseen problems. Steven’s dominant attitude and Rikki’s stubbornness make for some serious head butting and misunderstandings.
Daniel (DJ) an old friend of the family arrives for the wedding and immediately catches the eye of Rikki’s nurse, Sandy. She falls for him in a big way and all looks promising until her old boyfriend, Jeremy, who views Sandy as “his property” shows up. He’s decided he’s not going to be her “ex” and makes dire threats, vowing to get her back at any cost.
Weddings, pregnancies, appearance of skeletons from a variety of closets – all contribute to another great read full of mystery, romance, spice and action from D T Mann.
