Unleash your inner bad girl with New York Times Bestselling Author Eliza Gayle's (writing as E.M. Gayle) steamy Purgatory Club series! 

"Each stand alone story is sexy, kinky and emotional as hell."

Sometimes you need to cut and run and sometimes the ties run too deep to abandon.

Bonnie’s job at Purgatory keeps her on edge in more ways than one. Every day the pain of her grief over losing her Dom threatens to consume her. Her only escape comes at the hands of the resident tattooed bad boy who likes to keep things light and loose with a variety of women. He may not be the Dom of her dreams, but he chases away the darkness if only for one night…

Dex is used to unattached submissives coming to him for a chance to feel the kiss of his flogger or the sting of his whip until they find their own Doms. With his busy life of ink and kink he likes keeping his women at arm’s length. Except one night a month when Bonnie shreds him every time she asks him to hold her close.

When an unexpected invitation to an island resort arrives, is it the answer to their problems? Or their worst nightmare?

New York Times Bestselling Author Eliza Gayle, writing as E.M. Gayle,  welcomes you to Purgatory! A club for every desire.

Being a fire inspector is the perfect job for a girl with a fire fetish. 

Ruby has come to terms with her obsession, and thanks to her part-time job as a bartender at BDSM club Purgatory, she can dabble in a scene she isn't sure she belongs in without going too far or too deep. 

 But there's one Dom in town who makes her burn for things she wishes she didn't.

Zane made sure he was on the performance roster at Purgatory for charity night because Ruby would be on duty. 

He's respected her wishes to stay away as long as he could, but tonight while his fire burns bright he'll take possession of the willful beauty who has captured his heart.

Club Sin comes alive once again in this decadent short novel from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.
 
A dedicated cop, Sawyer Quinn blows off steam by immersing himself in his role as a Master at the hottest club in Las Vegas. But when Sawyer goes after the perp who brutally beat his sister, he teams up with Chloe Nash, a sexy private investigator who awakens a sweet new need: to keep her to himself, away from the dungeon of Club Sin. Chloe is beautiful, smart, and too innocent for the lifestyle. Sawyer’s never wanted a woman like this before. Is her love worth swearing off the one thing that keeps him sane?
 
There’s something different about Sawyer: a commanding strength that pulls Chloe into a vortex of heady desire. But when she learns about his double life as a Dom, she’s shocked—and afraid she could never complete him. Then he saves her life, and just like that, Chloe knows she will be able to give him anything he desires. She is his—wherever and however he wants to take her.
 
Commanded is intended for mature audiences.

WILD 

 
Faith is on the cusp of having it all. She made it through the last of her college finals and is looking forward to starting her career. If only her twin would answer her damned phone. After three days of no word, she's forced to drive to Devils Point and search for her. As her luck goes, things go south the minute she hits creepy island. Starting with a wolf attack that lands her in hot water with her sister's bad ass boss. 
 
Damien just wants to get through Mating Season and get back to normal. His would be mate is not at all what he expected and not exactly his type. Not to mention off limits. Until she shows up smelling like another wolf. Now all bets are off and this Alpha will do anything to protect her--including claim her. 

 

 

WICKED 

 
Rebel has one last thing to do before she can walk away from her life on Devils Point and the man she can't get out of her head. Find the shifter who hurt her sister. She'll have to work with Dante to make it happen and that might be the final straw that breaks her. Unless she can come up with an idea to get him out of her system. Like one night of no holds barred sex. Hot, dirty and thoroughly... Yeah, she definitely needs to get her mind out of the gutter. 
 
Dante thought he was waiting for his mate. It's what they were taught and what every wolf yearns for. But this mating season brought him a different kind of woman. Curvy, feisty and downright wicked. She is also not his true mate and everyone thinks he should let her go. Too bad she's under his skin and he doesn't know what to do about it. Well...he actually does have some ideas about that.  

 

 

WANTED 

 

This mating season has one last trick to play... 
 
Allison Fox is on the hunt again. Except this time the werewolf she’s been assigned to track is her brother. The search has led to the island of Devils Point and it doesn’t take her long to figure out she’s hit the mother lode—of werewolves. But when she meets Diego, her world turns upside down. 
 
As mating season comes to a close, Diego is thrown into chaos when he’s given the task of interrogating the female hunter who would like nothing more than to kill him. His track record with women sucks and this one is no better. Especially when his wolf stands up and claims her as his mate.

In search of some place to belong...

Levi Hawkins was a typical fun loving, hard partying college student with his whole life in front of him -- until one tragic night ripped his world apart and left him adrift with no home or family to return to. After a soul crushing stint in Afghanistan, he spent a decade wandering the globe searching for for something or someone to make him whole again. Weary of  regret and consumed by loneliness, he puts his heart on the line and turns to the only people still connected to him by blood.

He found and obsession...

A chance encounter at a lakeside cafe puts single mother Tori Ford directly in Levi's path and he's ready to stake a claim. She wants to keep her life simple. Work hard, raise her daughter, save some money and one day open the pie shop she's always dreamed of. She doesn't need complicated and she certainly doesn't need a wickedly hot Dominant to take control of her future. Except when he touches her she yearns for the pleasure and passion of submission. But Tori can't take another heartbreak and she can never trust Levi with her heart or her daughter if he won't open up about the darkness slowly consuming him.
