He was about to take Julie against her will. Having her body would not be the same as having her heart and mind, but Don didn't realize it at the time.
Obsession takes on terrifying form in Anthony V. Aqua's The Predator. This sexually explicit cat-and-mouse game will take readers into the mind of a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
Don Ricci is handsome, rich...and a psychopath. After a humiliating rejection by Julie, an old classmate, he kidnaps her at knifepoint and locks her away in a homemade dungeon.
Determined to make Julie into his idealized version of the perfect "wife," Don's violently sexual encounters with his traumatized captor are interrupted only by his intermittent carousing around town.
As his tempter spirals out of control, Don runs into more and more trouble both in and out of his underground lair. His erratic behavior eventually brings him to Black Jack Roma, a grizzled veteran of the New England mafia who assumes Don is there to silence him for good.
But as Black Jack realizes the true nature of Don's derangement, he decides to make the rich playboy an offer that he simply can't refuse.
