Winter

The Pleasure Quartet

Book 2
Open Road Media

The chain and the leather belt still adorned her, although in different configurations, no longer binds but an integral part of her body, jewels of passion, branches of transgression that she had earned by her wanton abandon.

Nursing the end of her dancing career and first love, Giselle Denoux returns home to Paris with a broken heart to face her disapproving family. At a flower shop in the Latin Quarter, she meets a magnetic artist named William Tremblay. Desperate to know more about him, Giselle signs on as one of his models—an act that binds them together, turning Giselle into both muse and master.

When a horrifying accident forces them apart, Giselle jumps at the chance to work for a decadent affair known as the Ball, an event of sexual excess and delirium—one she’s sure will heal her pain. At the Ball, Giselle moves up from dancer to madame, finessing her craft until an explosive moment many years later takes both her and William completely by surprise.

Winter is the 2nd book in the Pleasure Quartet, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

“I loved this book! Wait. Let me say this again. I LOVED this book!” ~ Fallen Angels Reviews


BOOK DESCRIPTION:  Her job is to make his life miserable. His job is to make her submit. Whose heart will surrender first?

Across the country, rebellious BDSM submissives are being systematically kidnapped, one from each club. When her friend falls prey to the slavers, FBI victim specialist Gabrielle volunteers to be bait in a club not yet hit: the Shadowlands.

She finds that being a bratty sub comes naturally, especially when she gets to twit the appallingly conservative Master of the trainees. But she soon discovers he’s not as stuffy as she’d thought. Or as mean. She’d expected punishment, even humiliation, but she sure never expected to fall in love with a damned lawyer.

Courtesy of a prima donna ex-wife, Marcus loathes disobedient submissives. When the club owner insists he admit an incredibly bratty trainee, he’s furious. But as he comes to know Gabrielle and sees the alluring sweetness beneath the sass, he starts to fall for her.

Unfortunately, Marcus isn't the only one who believes the feisty redhead is a prize worth capturing. And in the world of the slaver, such treasure is worth a hefty fee.

“I don't think there is any other option for me than 5 stars. I'd give it a whole lot more if I could.” ~ The Romance Reviews
