I have a new shepherd now.

I didn’t choose to fall for Aldous Occestem. The most hated man in Coventry, he antagonizes the town’s beloved megachurch at every opportunity; he operates a notorious, satanic-themed BDSM club; and now he’s a suspect in the abduction of my friend, as well as several other missing women. He should repulse me, but I can’t resist the way he makes me feel.

He leads me into temptation.

Handsome, dominant and sadistic, he ignites my intense hunger for submission. He doesn’t know I’m a private detective, investigating the case on my own. Our relationship started as a cover, but now I’m addicted to his world of carnal sin. Even if he’s not the kidnapper, his one-man war with the powerful Pastor Jones is a powder keg ready to explode, and I’ll be the one caught in the crossfire.

I fear no evil, for he is with me.

I should get out while I still can, but the deeper I dig into his life, the more I need him in mine. He knows how to soothe the pain from my past. He longs to own me, and I yearn to be his.

Something sinister is happening in Coventry. Innocent or guilty, Aldous is at its center. I won’t stop until I know the truth, even if it makes me the target of an unspeakable evil…

It’s so great to be back in author Sansa Rayne’s dark and steamy world!  The stories she creates are so vivid and gritty that I always get lost in her books and Exalted is no different!  First, I need to do a fangirl cheer about characters Marla and Gabriel from Ms. Rayne’s book Erased.  They both play a part in this story, and I loved it!  Now, if you haven’t read Erased, no worries!  You can read Exalted without any difficulties. If you have the time, I recommend you read it, but know it’s not necessary to understand this story.

I’m going to do my best to write this spoiler free!  I know some of you will want the juicy details, but I feel like you should experience this without knowing the summary.  I do recommend that you read the blurb as well as the publisher’s note, but that’s it.  If you love dark and steamy books that have a ton of twists? Then this book is a must read!
