Confusion and bitterness soon engrain themselves in her heart until she fights back and runs.
On Deidre’s eighteenth birthday, she runs away in search of her place in life.
On her eighteenth birthday, Dominic is sent to find her. Never expecting the little girl he used to know to have sprouted into a gorgeous, vibrant woman.
When the sins of the past come back to haunt them, are they strong enough to fight together or will they be left in the cold…alone?

Owned by Dominic by KL Donn is the first book in the Possessed Series and can be read as a standalone book.
I was a little apprehensive of reading this book after I read Bullied. That book just wasn’t for me. But I thought I’d give it a try and I’m glad I did. The two books are nothing alike. This book was very well written and made complete sense. The characters were believable and identifiable. The storyline was smooth and flowed well. It was just an all around good book.
The story is about Deidre O’Connor, a young girl who grows up in a harsh environment being raised by a father who hates her and keeps her as punishment for her mother’s transgressions. She meets Dominic who was sent undercover to kill her father. He ends up being assigned as her bodyguard.
Deirdre’s father makes Dominic an offer that he cannot refuse. Her life for his.
Years later Dominic comes back to collect on the deal, but Deirdre’s father is giving in that easily.
It’s interesting to watch the relationship between Dominic and Deirdre develop from young girl and protector to lovers. The age difference is brought up, but never made a big deal. It’s based on growing, changing, and developing feelings. Dominic’s friend Case! He is a hoot and a great big comic relief to the sometimes dark feeling of the book. I have to say though that I thought the bad guys would be a bit smarter then they were. You would think running an empire would teach you a few things about evasion, but in this case, not.
There is a great mix of suspense, action, comedy, and hotness! Great Job!
