A hot talent has arrived and she brings a spicy, erotic edge to her storytelling. Black, who gained an enormous following writing for Ellora's Cave (which she also founded), excellently combines hot sex, dangerous suspense and powerful emotions in a terrific, sexy thriller.

Top-notch surgeon Nikki Adenike has never met a man who could fulfill her adventurous erotic fantasies. Lonely and at loose ends, she surfs the web looking for like-minded individuals and stumbles across Richard.

Homicide detective Thomas Cavanah has personal reasons for wanting to capture the elusive serial killer called Lucifer—his daughter may have been one of his earliest victims.

When Nikki agrees to meet Richard face-to-face, only the intervention of her best friend saves her from becoming Lucifer's latest victim.

Nikki's escape drives Lucifer into obsession, and for Thomas, the killer's trail is coming much too close to home.
