In order to locate a missing friend, ex-attorney Wilhelmina Phoenix must step into the arena of corrupt and depraved decadence, where too much money, drugs, sex and power create deadly traps for the unwary.
When Phoenix's friend April vanishes after working for Sheer Pleasures, the private pleasure club located in the Cascade Mountains, Phoenix decides to masquerade as a masseuse to get inside and investigate. She is not alone in her investigation of the club; ex-navy seal Roman Wilde is on a similar mission.
Unbeknownst to any of April's friends or enemies, Roman found the battered pregnant body of April when she was dumped in the Mexican desert to die. With her last gasps of life, April delivers a tiny baby girl into Roman's waiting arms. Deciding to keep the baby as his own, Roman vows to discover who killed April and make them pay.
Phoenix and Roman are working the same case from different angles. Their physical reaction to one another is red hot, but can they put aside their distrust? With all the vast quantities of money, sex and power involved, the principals behind the pleasure club will do whatever is necessary to eliminate threats to their empire.
Outstanding author Stella Cameron triumphs once again by showcasing what is fast becoming her trademark-novels filled with sizzling sensual tension and high voltage action and suspense. SHEER PLEASURES is a sheer pleasure! (Oct., 384 pp., $5.99)
