Rapine: Ravished by the Billionaire (Trophy Wife #2) by Charlotte Rose

rapine 2

This is the second book in the Rapine series by Charlotte Rose. The review for the first book can be found here.

Cheryl and Julian are married now and have been for a few months. They have been spending the time since they eloped on an extended honeymoon. While on this honeymoon, they are visiting all countries of the world in no certain order. Julian is making sure that Cheryl is having the time of her life but he’s worried about something.

Julian is used to having women throw themselves at him. So he likes some resistance and he thinks that by telling Cheryl that, she’ll want to leave him and ultimately hate him. But, he at least wants to give it a shot with her on his needs. She signs an agreement to try things his way in the bedroom to see if she likes it as well or not.

After being together for several months but less than a year, they learn that Cheryl is pregnant. She passes out one night and a doctor is called. He suggests a pregnancy test as he can’t find anything wrong with her. But the first one comes back negative. He suggests doing it again in a week. That time it comes out positive.

In the back of Cheryl’s mind this whole time is Derek coming for her. She doesn’t want to be with him but he doesn’t care about that. His pride was hurt when Julian took her from him.

Is there a showdown between Derek and Julian in this book? Or do we have to wait until book three to find out what happens? Where all do Julian and Cheryl go on their extended honeymoon? What surprises does Julian have for Cheryl?


This was an excellent book. There are some editing problems in it but not enough to interfere with the understanding, reading and progression of the book. If you liked the first book, you will definitely like this one as well. Highly recommended read.

Rapine: Abducted by the Billionaire (Trophy Wife #1) by Charlotte Rose

rapine 1

I’ve read this book before but didn’t write a review about it. So now I just re-read it and will leave a review. 🙂

This story starts out with Cheryl and Derek. They are engaged. Derek does not allow Cheryl to work. BTW, he is a billionaire. He transfers money to Cheryl’s bank account each month so she can pamper herself and make herself look the best she can for him. In return, he only wants her to please him sexually. Cheryl has breakfast, brunch or lunch with her friends daily.

Her friends are both married to billionaire’s as well so they all take turns in paying for their outings. While out one night at a night club, a stranger approaches them. He shows interest in Cheryl who politely declines him. This doesn’t stick with him though. He starts tracking her whereabouts and runs into her a few more times. His name is Julian.

Derek and Cheryl goes to Las Vegas for New Years Eve. She wakes up on New Years day with a massive hang over. She heads to go down to the concierge to get some Advil when she thinks better of the idea and goes to return to her room. Lo and behold, who does she run into? That’s right fans. She runs into Julian. He offers her some Advil and water and she accepts it. He grabs her and forces her into his room where she struggles against him. Derek sees this. He gets severely pissed off and kicks the door in.

Ensue the major violence going on between the boys. Julian wins and knocks Derek out cold. He then makes Cheryl black out and he kidnaps her. He takes her to his home but he doesn’t hurt her. He wants her to trust him. He explains everything to her and wishes for her to stay there voluntarily. (To find out if she stays or goes, you’re going to have to read the book. 🙂 )

A great read. Definitely not for people who don’t like/read erotica as there are MANY spots throughout the book with erotica in it. 🙂
