While driving on a dark, mountain road after a detour, Lynne Temple realizes that she is lost and tries to turn around. She is on her way to start a new life in West Virginia after her divorce. Lynne has spent the last ten years of her life married to a man who did not appreciate her. At 34 years old she was ready to start over. As she made her u-turn, she saw movement out of the corner of her eyes, recognizing it as a man, with chains around his wrists and feet, she panics, hits the gas and runs into a tree. Her life was about to take a very different turn than she had planned. When Lynne woke up, she came face to face with every woman’s nightmare. She was being held captive in a cabin in the Appalachian Mountains by convicted rapist and serial killer, Jesse Redshaw.


Jesse had escaped from prison after serving five years of his term. He wanted to prove his innocence, but knew that no one would believe him. He had spent the last week nursing Lynne back to health after a very bad concussion. He wasn’t sure what to do her with her, but he knew that he wouldn’t be able to let her go for fear that she would turn him in as soon as she reached civilization. What is an escaped convict to do? As soon as she wakes up, Lynne recognizes him and tries her “best” to please him enough, so that he wouldn’t kill her. Her first move is to give him a blowjob. Now if you had spent the last five years in prison, with no access to women and you weren’t interested in men, are you going to stop her?


The whole premise of this “cabin” story is that Lynne was scared and would do anything to stay alive. Jesse just wants to be free, but because he resembles the sketch of the rapist/killer, and he is into Bondage, he was convicted of two of the rapes.


I freely admit that I like erotica. I have no real taboos, except maybe extreme pain brutality. I was a little peeved at Lynne. I realize that she was scared, but when she had a chance to think, she would have realized that no rapist/murderer is going to nurse his next victim tenderly back to health, only to inflict pain and kill them. If he really had been that person, he would have left her for dead on the side of the road, after taking what he wanted from her. I felt sorry for Jesse; he had gotten a raw deal, heck, when your own lawyer doesn’t believe you, what are your options? That fact that he took advantage of Lynne’s vulnerability and fear doesn’t make him a bad person, only human and horny after five years in a prison with only men.


If you are a fan of Jaid Black and submissive women, you will like this story.
