This is a dark, sometimes disturbing tale about a woman's struggle with
her own desires and her fear for her safety. Under the guise of BDSM, there are elements of nonconsensual sex, kidnapping and even a threat to Smokey's very existence. This story
is not for the faint of heart, and while there are many sexual scenes within this book, some might debate the existence of any romance at all between Smokey and Mato.

Reporter Smokey Rivers shows up in Storm Bay, investigating a string of murders. Spotting a picture of a stunning hawk in a gallery, she's determined to find its artist. But after meeting Mato Hawk, Smokey realizes that nothing is as it seems, not even her overwhelming attraction to the dark, brooding Native American. (APHRODISIA, Feb., 256 pp., $12.95)
