The Life of Anna, Part 1: Enslaved ***Rafflecopter***

Title: The Life of Anna, Part 1: Enslaved
Author: Marissa Honeycutt
Genre: Dark Paranormal Erotic Romance
Publication Date: September 6, 2014

Anna's entire life was scripted out before she was born by Devin Andersen, a man who doesn't have her best interests in mind. She is destined to be a tool in the hands to gain ultimate power in the USA. No, not as the President, but as the man who controls the President.

Raised by an extremely abusive guardian, Anna was molded into the perfect sex slave for Devin's use. Devin will use Anna's unique gifts to control everyone around him and eventually take her gifts for himself.

When Devin took her for himself at the age of sixteen, she had a vision of a man. A man who Devin was very interested in. But why? Why would Devin care about a young girl's dreams?

Anna has awoken from  a dream but her life is anything but  dreamlike. It seemed so real, she was in a room with them watching it enfold in front of her, although she didn’t understand the conversation. The handsome, blond man and cobalt blue eyes was arguing with another older man, that much she could tell by their body language. The discussion was heated and when he finally turned in her direction and she finally saw his face, he began to disappear from sight. Then she is in a large room and he is there as well. The man who helps her feel safe is kneeling in front of her. When he turns his head to speak to someone and then turns back, Anna begins to back away. She watched until he disappeared from sight and then slowly woke.
Her reality is a nightmare, but this is the only life she has known for quite a while, so she has no choice but to accept it. She is now with Devin. He has brought her to a new home and she has her own room, which he plans to frequent as she is now his mistress. She loves Devin, since her parents died and a friend of her parents took custody of her years ago, he is the only person who ever showed her kindness and love. She has been taught to be submissive, to give men pleasure and ask for nothing in return, but Devin is different. He does want to make her feel good, and he doesn’t hurt her nearly as bad as the other men have. He has even promised to let her dance again. She misses the ballet. She practically lived in the studio when her parents were alive as they were ballet dancers as well.
Devin introduced her to a group of friends and acquaintances at a magnificent event. As the evening progresses, one of the men, Kurt, takes an interest in Anna and he asks Devin if he can steal Anna away for a weekend. Wanting to have an insider with the mysterious foreign family, Devin consents and Anna is driven to the home of Kurt’s family. Anna learns she will be attending the ballet with Kurt, his father Wilhelm and his brother Alex. When Anna is being introduced to Alex she looks up into the face of a handsome man, a man with blond hair and blue eyes. He is the man from her dreams.

Fantastic writing and descriptions from this extraordinary new writer. While this is a dark storyline that had me holding my breath and feeling frantic at times, I find that I cannot wait to find out what happens next for Anna. Great beginning to a story, and while it does end with you wanting more, it is not a cliffhanger.  *****5 stars

Marissa’s story of Anna began with a dream about being kidnapped with Adam Savage from Mythbusters (Yes, really). Over the next year and a half, it morphed into the story you will be reading soon. She has several other stories in progress, one of which is based on her kidnapped dream. 

When she’s not writing or editing, Marissa is taking care of two young boys, training to be an astronaut, running her household, wrestling with gorillas, playing around on Facebook, promoting whirled peas, and busting her tush for her accounting degree. She enjoys chocolate, air conditioning in the desert’s summer heat, really good strawberry margaritas, sleeping, and shopping
