Julian’s erotic journey of passion and obsession continues in the second installment of her Salon Games series. Control and trust are the key factors in this deliciously seductive and heartfelt romance. Emotionally based, this deceptively complex storyline opens the door to a hedonistic world where nothing is forbidden and control is an illusion. Pleasure, pain, trust and denial all circle together to form a tentative bond between two fragile souls whose fear of the unknown could destroy them both.
Part-time tailor and lingerie designer Kate Song has reached an impasse in her life. She is tired of being the “good” girl. After she breaks off her engagement, she finds herself back in the arms of Tyler Golden, a hotel magnate who is still grieving the loss of his fiancée and fighting the guilt over his sexual desires. Kate is the first woman in a long time who has a chance of breaking through the icy shell Tyler has encased himself in. Can they submit freely to their desires and embrace a future together, or will their trust issues drive them both to a lonely existence apart? (HEAT, Sep., 320 pp., $15.00)
