The good girl --
She's worked hard to leave her ghetto roots behind. Now a successful district attorney with a reputation to uphold, Katherine can't afford to let go and indulge her secret desires.
The bad boy --
Ex-convict Jake Monroe remembers Kate as an uptight, prissy teenager. Seeing her again makes him want to live out every kinky fantasy he's ever had -- with her.
They have nothing in common but a difficult past...and a taste for unusual pleasures. Jake's determined to tear down Kate's walls, to push her past her limits. But Kate takes him further than he ever imagined.
Still a Thief
Jake's an ex-con with a chip on his shoulder. And if Little Miss District Attorney Kate thinks she can keep him in a brown paper bag and take him out in private, like a dirty little sex toy, she has another thought coming. If she wants to be his submissive, she has to accept that he owns her -- body and soul. Only Jake can scratch Kate's secret itch for domination. But it's all new to her, and now Jake wants to blur the lines. If she lets him take their bedroom play into the real world, it's only a matter of time before her colleagues in the District Attorney's office find out.
But her submissive desires are impossible to hide...and when Jake pressures her for passion in public, she finds his dominance impossible to resist.
Three's Not a Crowd
It's Halloween, and Dominant Jake has a very sexy trick planned for his favorite submissive, Kate. Kate's about to learn that three's not a crowd, and if she's good, maybe she'll get a treat as well.
Lord Bryan Sutherland has always had a taste for meeting the needs of masochistic submissives. When Kira contacts him, her plea for his help intrigues him. He's always loved curvy redheads, and they certainly have an explosive chemistry together, but he doesn't know if it is possible to establish the kind of trust needed in order to train her mind to convert agony into ecstasy. That trust is sorely tested when Kira pushes herself too far and refuses to safeword out, resulting in an injury.
Bryan must make a decision; continue to train Kira and run the risk of seriously hurting her, or walk away from the uncontrollable woman who holds the key to his heart.
The people around her are all involved -- in committed, loving relationships with multiple partners. She’s never been judgmental, and she can definitely understand the appeal. Still, she’s never found that kind of bond -- the kind that makes her friend Kendall glow with vibrant sexuality -- with one person, let alone two.
When she takes a 'special' cruise, she’s shocked to find herself aroused by blatant, public sexual displays. She’s never even thought of herself as especially kinky. And then she meets Eric and Lin -- a Dominant pair looking for a submissive...
When you’re looking for love, sometimes you have to walk on the wild side.
Caught in the middle between two men who want her for themselves, Louise is having the time of her life, but knows it can't last. With two lovers to choose from, each offering her something completely different, what's a switch to do?
Neighborly Affection, #1
She expects dinner with neighbors, but gets sex with a side of safewords.
Mechanical engineer Alice still drools over her sexy neighbors a year after she's moved in. She can't decide whether they're roommates or partners, but either way, they spark a wanton desire in her that has her imagination--and vibrator--working overtime.
Henry, director of everything around him, studies human nature and applies philosophies to his paintings as well as his relationships. Quirky, polite to a fault, and formal, he follows his own code of honor even when it means denying himself.
Flirtatious and playful, Jay needs stability, guidance, and to please others. His antics counterbalance Henry's stuffy ways while he brings a level of vulnerability and fun to everything the trio does.
BDSM play with the enigmatic artist and flirtatious joker across the hall allows Alice to put aside the linear thought processes which have kept her unsatisfied and distant with other lovers. She must dismiss her preconception of love, sacrificing her independence, if she's to find a permanent place in their beds and hearts.
