Dear Captor,

You’ve stolen me.
You’ve spilled my blood.
You’ve brought me pain.
But what you’re yet to realize… I’m a fighter.
I’ve been broken before.
I’ve even at one point lost the will to live.
So now you know… this information I gift to you.
I’m ready for you, so do your worst.

Sincerely,

Elenore

Captivating!

Dear Captor had me completely engrossed in this twisted thriller by author Liz Lovelock!  The storyline is unique and thrilling and I had a hard time putting my Kindle down!  It is the first of three books in the Letters in Blood series, which does end in a cliffhanger.

Elenore has had a difficult childhood and was adopted by her neighbor Suzie after her parents abandoned her.  She has been through a lot and doesn’t give up easily in anything she does.  Elenore currently is working as an assistant to an editor and she soon discovers one of her co-workers, Rebecca, is missing.  Elenore is distraught as there is a string of women being murdered.   What will happen when the Police question Elenore?

Dear Captor has many twists and turns and I was constantly trying to put all the puzzle pieces together.  It’s exciting, suspenseful and I can’t wait for the next in the series!

 

Excerpt

 

Prologue

 

What’s in a
name?

Usually,
parents name their children with a special kind of love in their hearts. Not
mine though. They didn’t want me, or at least, that’s what they kept telling
me. They only ever wanted to inflict pain. I was nobody until the woman next
door gave me the lovely name Elenore. She cared for me when my own parents
didn’t or wouldn’t.

Every
single day I wished to be taken away from what I endured. Anywhere would have
been good. I would have sold my soul to the devil himself back then, and I’d
willingly do it now. Give my living essence to breathe, to live on. My entire
childhood was a survival story, and now I have another.

So much
blood. Everywhere I look, there are dark pools of solidified blood stuck to the
walls, the floor—my entire cell is covered. The girls who came before me are no
more. Their stories are over. It was gruesome, the stuff of your nightmares.

Not me,
though—he kept me.

One letter
changed my destiny of certain death. It was never in me to give up easily. I’ve
always been a fighter. He never saw me coming, and he never knew my strength.
He was not what I expected either.

His
strength.

His
calmness.

Or his
kindness.

He was my
captor . . .
