Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars


My worst nightmare has come true, I’m one of them now, a monster… the very thing I fought against. If that wasn’t bad enough, I’ve been sired by one of the most powerful, sadistic and calculating vampire Lords in the city; Theoden. It’s just the beginning of my new life, hell, i’m not even one night old as a vampire and already I wish they had decided to kill me instead of turn me. I guess this was my punishment for rebelling against them. They’re clever that way. Theoden has promised to punish me for every offense I’ve made against him and I have no idea what’s in store for me. I do know that it won’t be pleasant. My night of pain and torment is just beginning.

Warning: This novelette series contains hardcore sexual situations between men, not meant for sensitive eyes. I’m talking crude, lewd and full of attitude. This series will most likely either offend you or get ya revved up. This series isn’t going to be pulling any punches whatsoever, so you’ve been warned. Mature Adult Content meant for readers looking for something dark, taboo, sexy, and unapologetic in their paranormal erotica. This is NOT a romance. This novelette is approximately 15900 words.

Caroline’s View:

There is a warning in the blurb that comes with this story – my advice would be to pay it particular attention!

Punishment picks up right where Embraced left off which is not a great place at all for Noel. He has been taken to Theoden’s home where he meets the other ‘children’ and is currently tied up in the basement. Theoden has turned him into his worst nightmare and now he must train him and that training starts with punishment.

He is pierced, beaten, stabbed, humiliated and made to bleed until he can behave in a way that Theoden wants and offer submission. There is still a little fight left in Noel but that is quickly diminishing as fear and his thirst for blood take over. The downside of being a vampire for Noel is his healing power as it means his torture can be prolonged and Theoden revels in this fact.

Like the first book in the series this is short and hard hitting and I was unable to put it down. For all of Theoden’s sadism I can’t help but like him and I am looking forward to see how his character develops throughout the series.

You have to feel sorry for Noel who seems to be losing pieces of himself as he transforms into a vampire and is made to go through the worst kind of torture but at the same time I find myself eager to know what the next creative punishment will be and how long it will be until he craves what Theoden is giving him.
