Synopsis (Goodreads):
Grace is in trouble. Her agent and ex-boyfriend, Marcus, has fled, leaving her stranded on the Venus Hive pleasure barge. His creditors want compensation and with Marcus nowhere to be found, they’ve decided Grace will do nicely. Desperate for help, she turns to Anton Myers, the wealthy and ruthless owner of the Hive Network. He agrees to help her. The terms: anything he wants for six months.

Anton has waited a long time for this moment. Grace may not remember him, but he hasn’t forgotten her. Signing herself over to his every command will not keep her safe. A Braxian never forgets a slight to his honor. And Grace will pay… with interests.

Anton's Grace is a twisted tale of unlikely second chances that will leave you squirming in your seat. Can you stomach the darkness?

WARNING: This book contains scenes that may be disturbing to some readers including dubious permission and graphic violence.
Thoughts on Anton's Grace: This book gets a little painfully dark at times. I totally get why Anton and Grace's relationship had to play out the way it did, but there were times when I wasn't sure if Anton deserved Grace or her loyalty. I was very glad Grace took a long, hard look at their relationship at one point and parsed through Anton's actions and what she was willing to put up with from him emotionally. And physically, for that matter.

So. Anton and Grace. He's a hard, driven half-breed who is determined to prove he's just as good as a full-blood. Except, he knows he never will be because of the prejudices of his people. So he uses his ruthless intellect and sets things up to put himself in a position of power.

Having Grace in his grasp allows him to right a wrong to his honor, but as he grows to care for her it gets harder for him to maintain his distance. Which means he acts even more harshly toward her at times.

Dark, sexy, and utterly engaging. It took a ruthless alien species, sprinkled in some human softness and gave us a complicated romance.
