Private detective Nick Hudson's latest case has him tailing a prestigious buyer for an import/export company suspected of shady dealings. Nick believes Jodie Silver can answer his questions about what's going on behind the doors of this supposedly reputable company. His stakeout hits a snag, however, when he gets distracted by the sexual escapades of this delightful minx.

Jodie has a fetish for the dom-sub world, exhibitionist sex and thievery. She leads Nick on an erotic chase where he spies her reveling in one decadent encounter after another. His hunger for Jodie grows each time he watches her surrender to another man—or another woman. And each time he wonders if this sexy thief will ultimately surrender to him?

Sticky Fingers will appeal to erotica fans who aren't looking for sweet romance or a traditional happily ever after. With their single-minded attention to debauchery, the characters are difficult to sympathize with, but they are, nevertheless, fascinating. (Aug., 282 pp., $12.95)
