Series: Acquisition #2
Genres: BDSM, Dark, Romance
Amazon Goodreads


Lucius Vinemont has spirited me away to a world of sugar cane and sun. There is nothing he cannot give me on his lavish Cuban plantation. Each gift seduces me, each touch seals my fate. There is no more talk of depraved competitions or his older brother – the one who’d stolen me, claimed me, and made me feel things I never should have. Even as Lucius works to make me forget Sinclair, my thoughts stray back to him, to the dark blue eyes that haunt my sweetest dreams and bitterest nightmares. Just like every dream, this one must end. Christmas will soon be here, and with it, the second trial of the Acquisition.

Full disclosure: This book is a dark romance with elements of slavery, violence, BDSM, and super-hot sex. It is the second book of a trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger. If you're good with these caveats, enjoy.

My Review

Magnate is book 2 in the Acquisition series by Celia Aaron. It is a dark romance, and should be read after Counsellor.

“I’m different. But I’m alive.”

Leaving Counsellor, we have just learned that Stella’s father helped orchestrate her sell to Sinclair. We also watch in shock as Stella chooses to be owned by Lucius.

“Seven rules to see you through. Seven rules to live by. Seven rules to make it hurt. Seven rules to kill by.”

I was on the edge of my seat throughout this entire book. It was like watching a movie play out in front of me, knowing that the outcome would likely be unbearable, but unable to detour my eyes that craved more. There were deja vu moments that I knew were coming, but still gasped in surprise, as if they’d snuck up on me, wrapping a hand around my throat and stilling my breath. In the midst of the hell that Stella was desperately clawing to stay afloat in, Author Celia Aaron wrote in some characters who provided a light breeze and hope. They were my points of oxygen, where I could relax for a moment and dream of a happier time for the heroine who had been a picture of strength and bravery. These points of relaxation come to an abrupt end as soon as I ventured into the final five percent. Nothing could have prepared me for the stifling shock that awaited. Book three cannot come soon enough!

“I need you to come back to me.”

About Celia Aaron

Hi, I'm Celia. Nice to meet you. Can you keep a secret?

I write smut. Gritty, dirty, delicious smut. This is a secret we can share. I'll do the writing. You do the reading. We have to keep our relationship quiet because I have a highly respectable day job. At night, I become markedly less respectable, as you will see.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my stories. And remember, it's our secret.
