FEVER – On sale March 17, 2015
About the book –
Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You will savor a visit to Club Inferno, the erotic playground where glitz and glamour mix with leather and whips.
Deep in the shadows of her exclusive fashion resort, Couture, Colleen Bryant presides over a much more intimate world: Club Inferno. The successful businesswoman and sex instructor has built an empire that caters to the BDSM elite, but now she finds herself longing for something a bit more ordinary: a man to love. She’s not sure how to find someone who will accept what she does for a living—or the kinks that drive her wild—until her old flame, ex-pro football player Chase Fairwood, comes back in her life.
There’s no woman as hot, sexy, or exciting as Colleen—and Chase knows it. He also knows he’s man enough to play her games, and to give as good as he gets. His return to Club Inferno reignites Colleen’s scorching demands, along with a new determination to test his resolve. Soon he’s competing against a rival Dom to brand Colleen as his own. But Chase has a secret weapon: the burning desire to offer his body—and his heart—in sweet surrender.
Fever is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
“He can’t handle full access,” Colleen said, wishing she could meet Chase in her bondage wear. She’d feel a little more in control. Or would she? A traitorous dampening in her panties made her think she’d cross a few lines with the man who had broken her heart. Colleen fiddled with the Club Inferno pin she’d placed on her lapel. She imagined Chase spread-eagled on the St. Andrew’s cross, his chiseled ass red from a good spanking.
“Well, he keeps blowing up my phone, so I gave him the appointment to shut him up. It’s up to you to shut him down.”
Nefertiti’s voice snapped Colleen out of the punishment fantasies, but not before they had heated up her imagination and distracted her with a slight ache between her legs. Damn Senator Clemmons. If he had just behaved, she’d at least have the calm centering that a successful scene gave her.
“Not a problem,” Colleen said, both to her reflection and in answer to Nefertiti. Walking back into her office, Colleen got herself a diet cola out of the fridge and handed a vitamin-enhanced water to Nefertiti.
“No thanks.” Nefertiti waved her off. “I’m going to barf.”
Colleen checked the clock on the wall. “You’re due for one.”
“Morning sickness, my ass. Only the first trimester, my fat ass.” Nefertiti hurried into Colleen’s bathroom.
Colleen shut the door to give Nefertiti some privacy and to shut out the sound of her retching. As Colleen cracked open the soda, she fired up her computer to see if she could catch TMZ’s latest report on her ex. She came up empty, but she did find one on herself.
“Don’t these assholes ever get tired of the gold digger crap?” she muttered, and scanned the article. This time, it said, she had her sights on shipping mogul Bartholomew Kiryakius, whoever the hell that was. He made Alfie look like a spring chicken. At least the picture they posted of her was a good one. She had been coming out of Añejo, a tequila bar one of her Doms had opened. For once the camera didn’t add ten pounds.
Because she still missed him every day, Colleen did a Google search for her husband, the late Alfred Granger, who had passed away four years ago at the age of eighty-one. A pang of sadness hit when his blue eyes twinkled back at her. Yes, he had been old enough to be her grandfather. Yes, he had been a billionaire. Yes, they’d met when she was working several jobs in Las Vegas. But she had loved him. He’d taught her everything she knew about being a Domme. He’d also saved her from loneliness, near poverty, and heartache.
