Butterfly in the Dark
WARNING: This book contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, explicit sexual themes, and graphic violence.
Eighteen-year-old Gabriella Martin has been told most of her life that she was strong.
Though blank-faced and reticent, she's filled with the crippling darkness of her past and soon becomes entrapped, literally, in an even darker nightmare when she's kidnapped and locked in a room. Forced in isolation before meeting her captor, a maniacal man who calls himself Salem and her Butterfly, she's certain that this is where she'll die, despite her efforts.
Continually faced with instances deeper and deadlier than anything she's ever experienced, Gabriella must choose which will inflict more pain: succumbing or resisting to her inexorable torments.
Some of the more explicit chapters will be made private.
