Justice Lonesome has enjoyed a life of bounty. Even so, she’s inherited the curse of the Lonesome. A poet’s soul. Which means she’s still searching for something. Searching for peace.

And the woman who takes her place at his side has to do it sitting on the back of his bike. When Deke meets Justice, he knows she’s not that woman. She’s cute. She’s sweet. And she’s into him, but she’s got it all and Deke knows he won’t fit into that. So he holds her at arm’s length. Establishes boundaries. And Justice will take it because she wants Deke any way he’ll let her have him. But when Justice finds herself a pawn in a dangerous game, Deke makes a decision.

" . . . dark, provocative, and glaringly honest . . ." H. Turley, Reader Emily Vargas has been taken captive. As part of his conditioning methods, her captor refuses to speak to her, knowing how much she craves human contact. He's far too beautiful to be a monster. Combined with his lack of violence toward her, this has her walking a fine line at the edge of sanity. Told in the first person from Emily's perspective, Comfort Food is a tale of erotic surrender that explores what happens when all expectations of pleasure and pain are turned upside down, as whips become comfort and chicken soup becomes punishment. DISCLAIMER: This book explores mature themes and is not suitable for those who can't handle them or minors. The author does not condone the behaviors carried out by her characters. What Readers are Saying About Comfort Food: "If you enjoy reading romance lightly drizzled with some vanilla sex and a dusting of fairy tale fantasies wrapped up in a happy ending, then this is probably NOT the book for you. If you want to expand your mind while reading a steamy hot BDSM psychological thriller with an mind blowing ending, then go ahead and give this a try. I dare you." - Wendy G "This is a very unusual and good story that explores themes of power, control, dominance and enforced submission and the psychology of captivity, isolation and reliance, but as it turns out the story is told from the perspective of both the Dominant Master as well as Emily and her journey into submission." -Carocaro "Kitty Thomas took me on a psychologically revealing roller coaster of a ride in Comfort Food. It's a story that explores dominance & control, forced captivity, sensory deprivation, non-con BDSM, & eventual forced submission..." - Angela Wallace "Comfort Food is crazy. Emily Vargas is crazy. Her captor is definitely crazy. And, after reading this book, I think I might be a little crazy. Can a book give you Stockholm syndrome by proxy? Because it definitely feels that way." -Letitia "The exploration of Stockholm syndrome was insightful. To see conditioning techniques successfully applied was fascinating. This is a memorable tale; I certainly have never read a story like it. I read it in a few hours. The erotica was dark BDSM / master-slave." - Sinfunni " I wonder if perhaps I've read so much dark erotica that it's lost some of it's shock value for me. I know that the only acceptable feeling to have towards Mr. Tall dark and nameless is disgust yet I never quite made it there. I'm choosing not to look to far into what that says about me as a woman, but hey, its fiction. That makes it ok. Right?" - Amazon Customer "First let me start out by saying, this is DARK erotica. If you do not like this kind of book, don't read it...i get tired of reading reviews dissing the dark erotica/ dubious consent, stating it was "sooo uncomfortable" well don't read these titles, duh! Now for me, I love it. Dark Erotica is unpredictable, unconventional and most of all a whirl wind of emotions. Furthermore, saying that you could not form an attachment to Emily and Master is like saying you didn't read the book, it was about nothing but Emily and Master. I guess if one is unable to get past the kind of twisted relationship they had, then it would be hard to form attachment." - Amanda Rae "`Comfort Food' is dark erotica. Kitty Thomas is writing extreme BDSM erotic fiction - master/slave masochism without the simulated `tie me up, tie me down' sex games... The Wasabi of Erotica" - Dee18 "I had read novels about bdsm and Stockholm syndrome but not like this. This one ruined many other books for me in that genre, lol, because it was that good (this is the one to beat). Comfort food crossed this little fine line between reality and fantasy . the majority of the books on the capture/kipnap/slavery theme you can view them like fantasy but Ms Kitty Thomas push the envelope taking it to a more realistic and plausible scenario. The severe case of Stockholm syndrome that Emily had towards Master is shocking, and let you wonder when does Stockholm syndrome grows into obsession or love." - Jay Benitez "My first dive into Dark Erotica and Kitty Thomas leaves me begging for more. As disturbing as Comfort Food is, it was also riveting. Emily Vargas has been taken captive, and in order for her captor to break her to his will, he removes the one thing she craves most--human contact. He tortures her with silence and offers comfort with chicken soup. And all too soon, Emily learns what it will take to get her abductor to give her what she craves." - Love, Lust, Books "riveting, sadistic, erotic in its own sense, and just plain excellent." -Kindle Customer "You pretty much can't look up dark erotica without finding Comfort Food at the top of the recommendations, and I'm so glad I took the time to read it. As soon as I started I couldn't stop, and I don't say this lightly, but it was perfect. It was more about the mental stimulation than the sex, though there was sex. It wasn't as heavily detailed or the entire focus of the relationship, however. It was far more about the process of breaking someone, of making them something new, and Kitty Thomas managed this wonderfully." - Michelle "While I have read some dark erotica, this book is the first of its kind. The BDSM world is pretty unknown to me. Aside from the fairly vanilla stuff we see on TVs or movies, this book does not pull any punches and pushes the audience into it." - acid_raine_burns "My exposure to erotica has not been favorable. Enough is enough; and the graphic descriptions of conquests gets boring and overdone quickly. Therefore, I usually avoid it totally. This work on the other hand, was very well done. The psychology of the captive/captor was very well presented. The material was well written and the erotica well placed in the story. The erotica was there but did not dominate or overwhelm the story. This is without a doubt the product of a talented author. I doubt if I will read more erotica; figure I'll quit while I'm ahead. However, this author is worth reading again." Dan C. Boutwell "The eroticism is in some ways explicit but not graphic and tastefully written to allow the imagination to work as well. At first I was afraid Emily's fear would remain the trigger for her obedience but it slowly evolved in to something else, something deeper that conveyed the steep emotions behind the erotic actions. When you strip away everything else, at the core Comfort Food is about a Master conditioning his slave." - Leontine's Book Realm "I would say this story is not for the faint of heart. If you like "Consequences", "Seduced in the Dark" and more of the hard core erotica, Comfort Food will end up being one of your favorites. Even then, this is not a HEA/romance novel so don't go in expecting roses and candy for an ending." - Emily "50 shades of twisted ; very compelling. Very dark and very erotic. Certainly a new twist in the erotic read." - Beckie "I wondered if I really wanted to read a book about someone who was kidnapped but after reading all the excellent reviews and being drawn to BDSM themed books after reading 50 shades, I was absolutely capivated and think this is the best book I have read in a long time." - Megan "Extremely interesting story!! The description is right - this is not HEA or Fifty Shades remake. This is much more of a psychological thriller/erotic story. I won't get into details to ruin it, but I recommend this book if you like to dabble in the dark erotic stories or if you are curious about them - This is a great place to start." - CRFreads5012 "Wow, simply wow! I started this book last night and just finished it. I have to say I was blown away by it. It is not any kind of normal romance novel, so if that is what you're looking for, go somewhere else. The closest thing I can compare it to is Story of O. This is not Fifty Shades of Grey. This is an erotic novel pure and simple, very little romance is in it...If you want a challenging erotic novel, one that may remind you of Story of O, then this is a great book for you. If you want a romance novel featuring a cozy little love story, then pass this one by." - Charles M. Smith II "I have read the Fifty Shades Trilogy and Seduced in The Dark, so the dark side of this book did not shock me too much. I really liked this author's writing, very descriptive and had me really into the book." - Kerri "This was one of if not the most intelligent thought out and well written erotic stories I have ever read. The intelligence and well though out analytical voice of Emily was a welcome surprise to the usual flippancy most "heroines" in stories have. This was written in a way that I can share with friends who don't particularly share my interest in erotica or things BDSM (consensual or not). It was not overly explicit there was just enough to entice, to stimulate through subtlety rather than blatancy. All in all, Kitty Thomas has earned herself a spot on my must read list." - C. Lauer "I agree with another reviewer that it is not a BDSM book, it is about a women who is kidnapped and her control is stripped away one layer at a time. An immensely enjoyable, brilliantly written novel. Highly recommended. Not a romance novel, except in a creepy Stockholm Syndrome way." - Lila "I had an expectation of reading an erotic book loaded with BDSM themes, sex, violence and force. I didn't expect to have to think too much. While there were some of those components throughout, the book was so much more. For me, it became a psychological profile of someone going through an extremely traumatic experience and how she chose to deal with it. Surprisingly, the book changed my viewpoints in some ways, helping me recognize that themes such as a victims response to trauma, may not always be comfortable or conforming to society's norms. The probing of the character's thought processes was unexpected." - Michael "I would still recommend this to those with a particular taste for BDSM and kidnap type books...it was definitely a mind-blower...also I will never look at chicken noodle soup the same ever again." - Sue B. "This is an adult book with dark, disturbing themes of possession, BDSM, Stockholm Syndrome and more. But if you can take it, this book will definitely stay with you." - Chris Jacobs "This is not a run of the mill BDSM story that ends w/a fluffy happy ever after ending. This is a story of submission and surrender - the total capulation of one's self, mind and body to another through force and a will to survive. I had been warned that this was a dark story and it truly is. I wanted something that I could sink my teeth into and not wrapped up in a pretty little package...and I got it. If you looking for something that is soft this is not it. But if you are willing to step off the deep end and are ready for a intense story, this is it." - Jacque "I want to preface this review by saying that I've struggled to finish reading a lot of mediocre books lately. I didn't realize what a gem I had lurking under the benign title of Comfort Food. There was no "struggling" to read Comfort Food. The narrative was smooth and easy to read, and pulled me in immediately. I knew by page 3 that I would not be reading anything else until I finished this book, even though the characters were sometimes difficult to like, and the story isn't exactly nice. Apparently I don't require nice. Some didn't find this story erotic, but I did. I think this is GREAT erotic bdsm, although if you like BDSM light, sweet, 100% consensual, and romantic - then this one might not be to your taste." - Sheri Johnson "As a female reader of erotica I sometimes find, especially in the bdsm genre, the author is too quick to the 'spanking and chains' not this time. The author takes her time to build an actual story and relationship, allowing you to connect with Emily and what she is going through. She manages to touch on each aspect that make the Master/slave relationship so complex without exploitive sex scenes, that are often unnecessary." - Butterfly "Ah...reading this book by Ms. Thomas was like having a feast after being on bread and water. I'm an avid fan of BDSM erotica but it's so seldom that I find a book that a) surprises me and b) impresses me with the quality of writing. This book did both. First of all, there are none of the usual tropes associated with non-consensual slavery erotica. No violence, no lurid fights and unrealistic cruelty, no blatant disregard for the well-being of the enslaved. This "Master" plans and proceeds with so much thought and intelligence (and gentleness) that you are at once both outraged and yet drawn in by this guy. Not that he is completely kind--he isn't. But there's no thoughtless and spiteful brutality, which placed me in a strange imbalance--hating him and yet feeling an unwilling attraction to him too." - Annabel "I love a dark read when I'm in the mood for one, which I was when this book came highly recommended to me. And it is dark. It is erotic. It is BDSM. All things I enjoy in a story." -JennieW "This is very dark literature, unsettling, and not your standard erotica. It is not about BDSM, but rather a genuine kidnapping. It does have an "incomplete" feel to it, but in this case I felt that it enhanced the storyline. It's definitely uncomfortable to read, and yet I suggest it. The erotic scenes are still often steamy, despite the storyline. It's truly about two broken people in a broken society. This prompted me to read more by Kitty Thomas, which has proven to be entertaining." -Gail "Comfort Food is dark, exotic and raw! Told in a very realistic tone, Kitty Thomas masterfully drops the reader into Emily Vargas' carnal and enigmatic tale: a kidnapped woman's journey of becoming a BDSM slave to her own captor. It's not every day that an author can pull a reader across their normal genre and have them so emotionally invested that they can't put the book down, but Kitty Thomas skillfully weaves this tale with a finesse that is truly remarkable, especially given the subject matter." - Tom Wiseman "Disturbing, twisted, and just plain weird . . . " Amy, GoodReads Reviewer " . . . an intelligently written, well-researched and very erotic exploration of the extremity of power dynamics . . . It's refreshing to read someone brave enough to tackle erotic themes that are truly taboo and seldom published." - Remittance Girl, Reader and author of "Gaijin" and other works of erotica "They are a match made in a twisted sort of hell. I don't, as a rule, like erotica, but I'm likely to check out Ms. Thomas' future work just to see how far she can push the envelope." - A Taste For Ebooks, Review Blog " . . . beautifully written and exquisitely detailed . . . a brilliantly written book and I highly suggest it, if you're up for the challenge." - Mama Kitty Reviews " . . . the most twisted form of psychological conditioning, I've ever read . . . will stick in your brain for days after you read it." - Kathleen Gresham, Reader If you like erotica by Kitty Thomas, you may also enjoy Claudia D.
