Product Description

Product Description

Please heed all warnings. ****This is a series about captivity in a FICTIONAL and EROTICIZED setting. It contains very disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language, and graphic violence.****


For the first time ever ALL the BESTSELLING BOOKS in the DARK DUET series are available in one complete set.

Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For twelve years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature. If Caleb is to get close enough to strike, he must become the very thing he abhors and kidnap a beautiful girl to train her to be all that he once was.

Eighteen-year-old Olivia Ruiz has just woken up in a strange place. Blindfolded and bound, there is only a calm male voice to welcome her. His name is Caleb, though he demands to be called Master. Olivia is young, beautiful, naïve and willful to a fault. She has a dark sensuality that cannot be hidden or denied, though she tries to accomplish both. Although she is frightened by the strong, sadistic, and arrogant man who holds her prisoner, what keeps Olivia awake in the dark is her unwelcome attraction to him.

What is the price of redemption?
Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood.
The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it’s all coming to an end.
Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance?
Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?

It didn’t happen exactly as Livvie said. She’s been very kind to me in the retelling of our story. The truth is far more…complicated.

The Platinum Edition also includes:
1) The NEW 30,000 word novella DETERMINED TO OBEY, featuring secondary characters Kid, Felipe, and Celia.
2) Eight scorching-hot fan-written Dark Duet short stories hand-selected by the author.
3) CJ's favorite interviews & Reviews

Over 1300 pages of content for a fraction of the combined individually priced books in the series and bonus content.

Author Endorsements:

“’This series is the most incredible mindf**k I've ever experienced.’ Or something along those lines. Write whatever you want and slap my name on it. I loved it that much.’ – Colleen Hoover, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

"I have never had an author move me to the point that I felt I needed to get in my car and go after someone who was fictional." --Tina Reber, NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author of the LOVE series

"Absolutely amazing! I have not been this captivated by a book, by a series, in years! Thank you to everyone who told me to read these." -- Aleatha Romig, NYT Bestselling Author of the Consequences series

"I'm very stingy with five stars. I usually only give those to modern classics or books that I am absolutely crazy about. Here is why I think CID deserves five...." -- Tarryn Fisher, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Love Me With Lies series

"Just know that I think it was an exhilarating (albeit somewhat exhausting) reading experience and I LOVED it. And… I appreciated it even more once I was done. I felt mostly… complete. Crazy right? Ahhh but sometimes, it just is what it is. It was rich, well rounded, uncomfortable, exciting and scary (in multiple ways). Emotionally affecting. I lived it, I didn’t just read it, although I was VERY happy to be on this side of the book. *phew* I may enjoy the fictional thrill and I may like it crazy at times, but I’m very content on the “safe” side of life." -- Maryse, Maryse's Book Blog

5.0 out of 5 stars Cj Roberts does it again! 29 October 2014
By Yajaira Diaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition

I feel the need to add this here before I even start my review since there still seems to be people out there who pick up books and not read the warning labels. Then they go on a GR/Amazon rampage because they didn’t know it was *that* type of book. (Even when there are numerous warnings in the first pages and on reviews such as this one.)


With that being said, I was ecstatic when Cj told me she was expanding on Kid’s story! I wanted it yesterday. Alas, it had to yet to be written. While I waited for it, I was constantly tempted to message her every other hour and be all, “Is it ready yet? Huh, huh? Is it, Is it?”

Then one night as I was getting ready for bed, my inbox beeped with a message, and there it was, all shiny and new, batting its eyelashes at me. It was beautiful. *pets*

I’m pretty sure I shed a few tears.

Anyway, Determined to Obey was awesooooooome! Thank you, Cj for letting me beta read this hot little piece.

As with the Dark Duet, Determined to Obey is not for the faint of heart. It will make you snicker and sweat, and very uncomfortable in your nether regions. I had to put it down several times because, holy momma, I needed to breathe through the heavy blushing and panting. There were even a few times where words failed me and all that came out were squeaks. And lots of “Ohmygod, Cj” while changing into a new set of panties.

Those of you who know me, know that I’m a sucker for the anti-heroes. And no one does anti-heroes quite like Cj Roberts. Yeah, I’m probably biased, but what can I say? My love of her books is what lead to our friendship. But I do know how difficult it is to write a male character that is both ruthless and likable. With Caleb from Dark Duet, and Felipe in this case, Cj makes it look so damn easy, I hate her! (Not really, I just want know what dark gods she worships so I can erect my own temple. I, too, want the writing powers!)

I’ve read many, many, amazing anti-heroes, but hers are the real-deal bad. Not only tortured, but also on the wrong side of the law. Like, I-can’t-even-see-the-line-I’m-so-far-on-the-other-end bad. To make her men be, both, bad and likable is a gift. She toes that line, and pushes at your comfort level and does it spectacularly.

From his first appearance in Seduced in the Dark, I have been wildly curious about Felipe. (Yes, by that I mean I wanted in his pants.) So getting to read more about him and his relationship with Celia was an absolute treat. His developing relationship with Kid was a bonus, IMO. I think I would have crushed on Felipe even if this story was just him and Celia. They’re both such fucked-up characters, adding Kid to the mix was brilliant.

Now, it certainly wasn’t a perfect book. It had a few details that weren’t working for me. I noted them in my beta notes, and I was happy to see that Cj addressed them in the final version.

In closing I’d like to add that, I devoured this story the way I do a new box of Oreos. And just the same as with the delicious cookies, I still wanted more.

5.0 out of 5 stars if not my MOST favorite stories of all time 31 October 2014
By poison_lilly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of, if not my MOST favorite stories of all time. I read the first 2 books almost in one go, 16 hours with Caleb and Livvie, only interrupted by having to feed my cats who ended up meowing bloody murder to try to get my attention away from the book. It all is one huge roller-coaster that leaves you emotionally drained and questioning yourself and your sanity. In other words, AWESOME!

But I am incredibly grateful for having had the privilege to read such a story. I've read reviews from other people who've read it and a lot seem to focus on the 'love' story. For me it was the psychology behind it all, the inner monologues and self-analysis that created such a strong story and characters.

And I have to say, I am a sucker for a Beauty and the Beast type story. Not sure if others will see it the same way, but to me, it was a beauty and the beast story, she saves the beast/monster/pervert/etc by turning him into something good again (although that's has to be the most minimalistic and understated way of describing what happened between Livvie and Caleb).

Looking forward to the 4th book
5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 7 March 2015

Loved it. I couldn't put it down.
Captive in the Dark is one hell of a roller coaster ride.

Captive in the Dark has great character description and is well written giving the reader heart stopping moments and a ray of emotions.

Livvie is a young girl who is saved by a unknown man as she is walking to school and becomes awed by the helpful stranger, Caleb. However, people are not always what they appear leaving Livvie in more danger by the helpful savior. As Livvie adjusts to her new surroundings, her only constant is Caleb. She has to learn to depend on him as much as fear him.

Livvie is a strong yet naive young woman who struggles with her new surrounding but continues to strive in survival.

Caleb is a dominating man who requires complete control. He is hard and angry but also able to show a softer side in order to gain Livvie's trust.

As the story unfolds, the characters have to learn to trust each other if they plan of surviving the new path and their unknown future.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful dark romance!! 8 April 2016
By Kimmy ers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was so soaked into this series! I have found that I like the dark romances, surprisingly. I guess because they aren't the typical normal way to fall in love! The shock value is priceless for me! The emotional torment keeps me on the end of my seat & I can't wait to see how everything will unfold! This is an amazing story of how a person can change & find ways to live a different life even when they don't think they need or deserve it! I got the first book under my Kindle Unlimited & didn't think twice about buying this series! It's a definite example of not judging a book by it's cover & how people are more complex than they usually appear! If you can handle the dark to get to the light, I recommend this series!! LOVED IT!
4.0 out of 5 stars Dark books are not something I gravitate towards but I've read good things about this series by people I follow via ... 31 October 2014
By Amy R - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Book 1 -This is a cliffhanger but all the books have been released. Dark books are not something I gravitate towards but I've read good things about this series by people I follow via Goodreads, Twitter and Facebook so I thought why not (author will also be at a signing I'm attending soon). I thought the author did a good job portraying the emotions and mental state of both Livvie and Caleb. I so want Livvie to get what she truly deserves and even though Caleb is just one big ball of fucked-up by the end of this book dare I say I had hope.

Book 2 - 4 stars
