Spice: A Novel

Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.

The third and final installment of the bestselling FATE series

As the adult film sensation, SPICE, Liz Carter was known for her sultry looks, sexy curves, and natural DDs. Years ago, a surprise pregnancy prompted her to leave porn and LA for her native New York where she launched a new life as a single mom and graphic designer. Still, having to hide her past for the sake of her son takes its toll. Staying single and solo is a lonely path but it’s also easier—and safer—than risking being recognized. To fill the void, she forms FATE, an informal meet-up group for former adult entertainers who’ve left the life but find themselves in need of a supportive, safe environment where they can speak freely without fear of retaliation or rejection. The tight knit group of five, which eventually includes her bestie, Sarah (SUGAR), becomes more than friends—family.

FATE is just a few months old when Liz learns she has breast cancer. The decision to have a double mastectomy is agonizing but doing so will give her the best shot at seeing her son grow up. The multiple surgeries and chemotherapy are grueling but with the help of her fellow FATEs, she comes through. Cancer-free for more than a year, she is back from a mother-son vacation to Disney World when she runs across a Facebook message from a former male stripper seeking to join the group. A coffee meet-up to screen the potential newcomer proves to be more than Liz bargained for—a lot more.

Tall, dark, and Irish-American, Sean has her seriously rethinking her “single and solo” status. For the first time since her diagnosis, she feels sort of...sexy—so long as she keeps her clothes on and her scars hidden.
Will Liz learn to trust again only to have it—and her heart—broken?

After his sister, an adult film star, dies from an inevitable drug overdose, PhD candidate Sean O’Malley does some digging into the porn-star life and stumbles upon FATE. Curious about the correlation between drug usage and the industry, he contacts Liz—the group’s smart, sexy leader. Hoping to better understand his sister’s life and death, he poses as a former male stripper seeking guidance and support. If he can be accepted into FATE, maybe he’ll get the answers he seeks.
But infiltrating the group isn’t easy. Though Sean eventually wins over most of the members, there’s only one flaw in his plan: Liz. But he has work to do and his late sister to think about. He must continue his research. So why does he keep finding excuses to put off finishing it?

Jamie K. Schmidt’s USA Today bestselling series invites readers into the opulent private dungeons of an exclusive resort where the clientele shed their clothing . . . and their inhibitions. All three Club Inferno novels—Heat, Longing, and Fever—await in this decadent eBook bundle. Are you ready to take the plunge?
 
HEAT
 
On the run from her abusive fiancé, ER doctor Mallory Bryant arrives at her sister’s Connecticut resort desperate to restore balance to her life. At first, Mallory is wary of Max Spencer, the martial arts trainer acting as her bodyguard—until he introduces her to a craving so intense she wants nothing more than to surrender to his touch. As one of Club Inferno’s most skilled Doms, Max enjoys taking Mallory to the heights of pleasure. But when her violent past catches up with her, Max knows what he must do: draw her closer than ever before.
 
LONGING
 
Reeling from a disastrous love affair, plus-size model and budding fashion designer Anya Litton needs a place to lick her wounds and plan her next career move. At Club Inferno, Anya quickly connects with Clint Reyes, who unleashes her deepest longings over nights of burning passion. But it’s Anya who has her master begging for more when she pushes the limits of desire. As their relationship ignites into a contest of wills—and a jealous rival plots against them both—the wrong move could end it all . . . because taking control means total abandon.
 
FEVER
 
Colleen Bryant has built an empire that caters to an elite crowd, but now she wants something a bit more ordinary: a man to love. She’s just not sure who will accept the kinks that drive her wild—until her old flame, ex–pro football player Chase Fairwood, comes back into her life. Chase knows he’s tough enough to play Colleen’s games. His return to Club Inferno reignites her scorching demands, and soon he’s competing against another Dom to brand Colleen as his own. But Chase has a secret weapon: the all-consuming desire to offer his body, and his heart, in sweet surrender.

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Style and seduction collide as the world’s best-dressed men and women shed their clothing . . . and their inhibitions.
 
On the run from her abusive fiancé, ER doctor Mallory Bryant arrives at her sister’s Connecticut resort desperate for a place to restore balance to her life. But Club Inferno is more than a haven for the rich and fashionable. Beneath its elegant facade, dominants and submissives play out their fantasies.

As one of Club Inferno’s most skilled doms, Max enjoys taking Mallory to the limits of pleasure. It’s a dangerous proposition, and as their sensual games draw them into a relationship beyond the boundaries of pupil and master, Max starts spiraling out of control. But when Mallory’s violent past catches up with her, Max knows what he must do: draw her closer than ever before, even if it means risking a surrender of his own.

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Sex on the beach has never been so much fun! Jamie K. Schmidt delivers an irresistible tale of second chances, secret identities—and a connection that’s too sweet to miss.
 
When Amelia Parker arrives in Maui, newly single and unemployed, she’s shocked to discover the resort she booked is actually a ramshackle little beachside hotel. At least the scenery is easy on the eyes—as is the toned, laid-back snorkel instructor, “Dude.” After two weeks of sun, serenity, and mind-blowing sex, she even accepts a job as the hotel’s concierge. But what Amelia really wants is to relaunch the place completely. And that means convincing the absentee Wall Street billionaire owner, Samuel Kincaide, to take a chance on her.
 
Samuel has a plan, too: selling off every last reminder of his former life and chilling all day, every day as his slacker altar ego . . . Dude. He loves his romps in the ocean, and under the sheets, with the feisty Amelia. If she discovers his true identity, her boundless enthusiasm and innovative business plan will seriously diminish his hammock time. But when Amelia runs into real trouble on the island, he’ll put everything on the line to keep her safe. He just hopes that the woman who’s falling for Dude will feel the same about Samuel.

A fiercely protective bad boy. An innocent reporter in serious trouble. They shouldn’t work, but after he throws her onto his bike, there’s no going back.

If Josh Lehman learned one thing as a Green Beret, it’s patience. Josh founded the Sentinels of Babylon because he was sick and tired of watching scumbags cheat the system—scumbags like the man who murdered his sister. Of course, if Josh’s sniper rifle was linked to the death of his ex-brother-in-law, that might be a problem. The bigger problem is the nosy reporter who’s this close to exposing the club. Josh has to find a way to keep her hot mouth from talking . . . but he’ll be damned if he lets someone take her from him. Not on his watch.

Ashley Carver thought she’d do anything for a scoop. That was before her latest story leads to multiple attempts on her life. Ashley’s been investigating a homicide that has gone unsolved for two years when she uncovers evidence tying the vigilantes of the Sentinels of Babylon to a revenge killing. Now she’s in their crosshairs. But after Josh defies all notions of club loyalty to come to Ashley’s aid, soon they’re burning up the sheets—and taking on the world.

Praise for Sentinel’s Kiss

He can read her like a book. But will he give her a happy ending?

Dawn: I’d do anything to keep my bookstore. It’s a safe place for all women, somewhere to let their freak flags fly. I call it sex-positive. The menfolk call it smut. That’s how I met Rory Parker, the local billionaire trying to shut me down on behalf of the “moral majority.” He walked in with an offer I couldn’t refuse . . . except I did. Now Rory wants to play dirty. Well, he picked the wrong bookseller. Let’s see how much support he still has after people get a load of the little movie I recorded of the two of us going at it like wild animals in my shop. 

Rory: I couldn’t care less how Dawn Nolan makes her money. The only thing I care about is how much she’s making. Her bookstore isn’t the kind of upscale attraction my investors want in this sleepy little tourist trap, so it’s got to go. But when Dawn personally finds out how I treat bad girls who misbehave, she seems to enjoy it as much as I do. Now I just need to destroy the copies of that video she’s threatening to post—as soon as I stop watching it. The trouble is, when I’m with her, all I want to do is get started on the sequel.
