Ten hot, some not, participants must go through a series of trials that will test their limits, break their spirits, and be so entertaining for everyone else not involved! Don't you just love reading about other people's drama or pain? Watch them as their psychological health gets tested. Will friends be made? Will enemies be born? Find out inside!
See you in there!
Sammie Preston is stolen by Dominic Burns at the age of six and forced to live a new life as Sam Burns. She holds onto the vision of one day escaping to find her real family. But before she does this, she will have to endure pain and loss at the hands of her abuser.
The Sins of Dom is a dark tale, exploring the murky underpinnings that define good and evil: Evil's wrath strikes with a venomous passion of lust; and good triumphs in a similar expression of rapture; here, the dichotomy between the two becomes nebulous.
