    I enjoyed the story but had a little trouble believing that Faith could care for a man that kidnapped and sexually assaulted her. I understand she found that she enjoys rough love and that this is a story. Still love Carolyn Faulkner\\\’s stories!

    This was well written but it was quite harsh. The ending was a little abrupt and felt a bit forced (no pun intended). Still a good CF read.

    The story was a bit harsher than I had anticipated. I\\\’d probably not recommend this one over other Carolyn Faulkner books available. The interactions were well-written, though. My caveat is that it\\\’s extreme. Usually there is a bit more of a warning listed than there is here. I agree with the reviewer that had a hard time with the heroine\\\’s conversion from kidnapped to caring for the hero.

    Overall this was a great, but severe, story about a drug lord and his mistaken captive. There was good emotional developement of Cord\\\’s feelings toward Faith. Faith\\\’s feelings were not as expressed, making the ending a bit abrupt. Story included non-consent, harsh punishments, bondage, and anal play/punishments.

    Hot (and at times pretty harsh), enthralling story that I had a hard time putting down.
    Carolyn Faulkner definitely knows how to write and draw her readers into her stories!!
    This is one of my favourite CF stories and I highly recommend reading this!!

    I think he was too harsh with her after finding out who she really was. And then the ending fell flat for me. It didn\\\’t seem plausible that she wouldn\\\’t run away screaming. But I will admit I liked the non con sex scenes. It reminded me of Prima. I would say it\\\’s a must read for her BDSM fans but not for her fans of DD (domestic discipline).

    This story deals with a bad case of mistaken identity and all the problems that come with it. This is definitly not for the faint of heart as it deals with noncon and sexual torture.

    this was a very dark and troubling story for me. Cord has Faith kidnapped because he thinks she is someone else. He sexual tortures and beats her.I don\\\’t think Cord was all bad and he really did start to care for Faith. I think Faith found something she needed from Cord, but was terrified of giving in. I hated the ending to this story it seemed very incomplete to me.

    This was a great and easy read. You cannot put this down and the ending is unexpected. The main female character is lovely and captivating and the male character will make you wonder. Overall, a bit hard-core, but a very good read.

    This is a very good story but definitly not for everyone, if you like non conecent stories this is perfect for that is what this story deals with. faiath is kidnapped because she looks like another woman. Even when her captor realizes he has the wrong girl he sexually tortures her. Faith discovers things about herself during this time that she never knew she liked. Very good story.

    I give Gilded Cage by Carolyn Faulkner 3 stars. It’s something like The Rape of the Sabine Women done modern. She mentions Stockholm Syndrome in the text and the story provides an interesting perspective on that theme. It’s definitely a Romance story, so has the usual ending, but a rather different way of getting there. I felt more detached from the story than I normally do from Carolyn Faulkner’s works. Perhaps that is due to having been through SERE training; I was looking at the psychology of the situation. It’s a plausible plot and the story flow seems reasonable. It was a physically difficult read on my kindle, though. The kindle version is NOT formatted for kindle. The text is therefore extremely tiny. There were a lot of typos in the text as well. It’s well written but my overall feel gives it three stars.

    This book was awesome. I am always searching for a great bad guy kidnaps girl story. The erotic torture Cord put Faith through was exquisite. Definitely one I will read multiple times.

    This was a different viewpoint of BDSM. Usually it\\\’s written from the consenting persons. This one was discovered and continued violently without discussion or any form of consent. Interesting, since I\\\’ve read so many stories from the other viewpoint. This version was edgy and made the familiar more alive. I\\\’d gotten bored with Faulkner, but now I\\\’m open to more of her.

    This is a story your either are going to like or hate it. It\\\’s not for every one it is edgy, not the mainstream romance it is violent in how she is kept prisoner.

    This is a non-consent story about a drug lord (Cord) and a woman (Faith) who is mistaken for a heiress. Even after finding out the truth Cord keeps her. I enjoyed this book the scenes were hot throughout. The one problem I had eas that the ending was extremely rushed.

    Not sure about this one! It was given to me by a friend and it was a little too graphic for me. I love Carolyn Faulkner, but this just seemed a bit much for me.

    Definitely not my fave. I expected a slave story, so I knew there would be rape and torture and stuff, but it felt a little…crammed in? Like the random enema? And the ending was SO abrupt. I did not care for it. I definitely did not think it was CF\\\’s best…

    Poor Faith is mistaken for someone else entirely and is kidnapped and used and abused and tortured quite literaly but in the end finds out that she really does like it. This story was better than I thought it would be but definitly never for everyon as it is very graphic and harsh.

    I am a huge CF fan. This story is harsh. Torture and rape. Not a love story in any way. I like her stories more when there is a little love and respect between her characters. The end made it a little easier but not much.

    I am a big fan of Carolyn Faulkner- she runs the gamut from romantic and mild discipline to severe discipline and coercion in her books, and depending on my mood, I can go for either of those, or anywhere in between. This was certainly one of her harsher stories, with plenty of coercion and harsh discipline. If that\\\’s not what you are looking for, then this story might not be for you. I enjoyed it, found the storyline believable, but it did seem a little rushed at points.

    This book was harder for me to digest simply because the leading male was both antagonistic and protagonist so it was hard to know in what light to see him in. Also, you don\’t tend to see the \”villains\” giving sexual pleasure as a form of degradation and punishment. So, very different. Not sure I liked the ending.

    I love this author and this is a good example of her work. The characters are well written and the story evocative. There is very harsh BDSM but this is expected from this author. A well written story that I highly recommend.

    Carolyn Faulkner can pen some disturbing tales of erotic horror; some are created in a dystopian world, but this time, it is modern day, Columbia, South America. The details will leave your shuttering as Faith endures torture at the hand of The Devil. If you are looking for a sweet, happy story, this is not it.
    I will be the first to say this is not an easy story to read; it is dark erotic horror, sadomasochistic, not love, but being possessed by an individual purely for their pleasure, no matter how depraved it may be. Faith was kidnapped, abused, raped, dominated, punished and then he controlled her. The story took me out of my comfort zone, and it is not easy to read of the horrors that Faith will endure at the hands of a drug lord, Cordero \”El Diablo\” De La Fuente. What starts out as a vacation of her dreams becomes a living nightmare, brought about by mistaken identity. Even when he learns that she is not the person they assumed, Cord keeps her for his sadistic pleasure. A place where he’d found that perfect balance between pain and pleasure, guiding her to it each time, unerringly. Where will it end for Faith?

    A short story of kidnapping, severe punishments, and extreme sexual pleasures. The story of Faith and Cord is a BDSM story – there is a good story behind the sex and punishments and enough development of the characters to help you understand them, even if what is happening in the story is sometimes beyond the taste of some of us.
