In Book 10 of the Heart Bound series from Leigh, threesomes, anal sex and spankings crank up the heat. However the mildly suspenseful story and the two-dimensional characterizations of the alpha males and their mates may leave some readers wanting more.
Two years after ending her marriage, Kia is still healing until she runs into Chase and his friend, Khalid, associates of a secret club that she protected by lying. Kia joins them for a night of sensual fantasies that helps her rebuild her sexual self. It also creates a strong bond with Chase, whom she has loved secretly for years. Once Chase has Kia, he is determined to keep her, sending his protective instincts into overdrive after attempts are made on her life. (ST. MARTIN'S GRIFFIN, Jan., 368 pp., $14.95)
