Twice as Hard

Sold by Carina Press

They caught me. Naked, shivering and dripping after a spontaneous swim in the forest. Two rugged men whose hard gazes captivated and scared me all at once.

They warned me. Told me I was on private property and I needed to obey the law…or I would be punished.

The idea of them both punishing me, pleasuring me, kept tormenting me. I couldn't want them. I shouldn't. But I did.

I didn't mean to trespass again. I thought I could retreat without notice. But they're coming for me.

To show me the pleasure in pain. To show me just how right forbidden can feel. And to love me twice as hard as I ever fantasized.

Elle distrusts love and relationships. Avi wants to fall in love and get married. Can he help her past her trauma so she can see how right they are together?


When Elle’s friend arranges for her to see the inside of a fabulous, luxury penthouse, she never imagined she would find the sexiest man she’s ever seen sitting in a chair. Blindfolded. Tied up with rope. And totally naked!


A traumatic experience has left Elle a shell of the vibrant, adventurous woman she once was, but the sight of this man’s breathtaking body overrides her caution and leads her to make a very bad decision.


After she flees the scene, she hopes that unlike Cinderella, her Prince Charming will never find her. That hope goes up in smoke when he calls her the next day insisting on meeting her.


She doesn’t believe in love and won’t even consider his suggestion that they date, but when he offers her a sex-only, no-strings-attached relationship where he’ll bring her deepest sexual fantasies to life, she finally agrees.


Unfortunately, she finds herself falling for him, and she knows that can only lead to the worst kind of pain.


MENTOR is the fourth book of the Penthouse Pleasures series. This is a fun and scintillating sexual adventure. It’s also a poignant story of a woman traumatized by a devastating betrayal in her past and a man intent on convincing her that love doesn’t have to be pain and happily-ever-after is a real possibility.
