"Someone knows, Martine. And they're coming after us."

Martine Broussard has never forgotten the terrible night years ago that drove her and her best friends apart. Now a vengeful someone is brutally killing each woman involved. Martine has one chance at survival—and that's the one person she distrusts most! And the passion flaring between them is anything but safe…

Rule-breaking New Orleans detective Jimmy DiBiase wastes no time putting Martine under his 24/7 personal protection. His bad-boy ways caused them to fall out years ago; now all he wants is to guard her and end this nightmare. With every lead they follow, every secret they can't hide sparks a hunger neither can resist—even as a killer's vicious end game turns desire into a devastating trap.


A riveting mystery brings to light an innocent teenage game gone awry that is now leading to murder and mayhem! The characters have a great connection with their own level of angst that gives us a side bit of possible romance to stew about on the side.

Martine Broussard has never forgotten that night long ago that tore her group of friends apart. She’s never shared their secret with anyone, but when someone starts brutally murdering the people that were there that night, she’s left depending on the one man she despises for help!

New Orleans detective Jimmy DiBiase has been intrigued by Martine for years, but a mistake made long ago left her looking at him like gum on the bottom of her shoe and avoiding him whenever possible. When he learns she’s in danger, he’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe … and the close quarters they have to keep while doing so gives him a chance to show her that he’s not such a bad guy after all!

My boss already controls my days; do I want to give him my nights, as well?


I've seen what happens when you give everything to a man. That's not what I want. I won't have my heart crushed in anyone's fist.

Then he changed everything.

Him. Bennett Ashby. My boss.

Seeing him at Luminous, dressed in leather pants and wielding a whip…

Do I crave this?

My mind says no, but my body is starting to have very different ideas.


I knew Rebecca Morales would be the perfect assistant. That's why I hired her.

I didn't know that working with her every day would lead to temptation—to own her, to possess her.

When she walked into Luminous, I knew I was screwed. Dipping your pen in the company ink is never smart, but we both agreed what happens at the club stays there.

One night and then it's back to business tomorrow.

Except I don't want just one night with Rebecca. I want them all.


Stacey Lynn brings us another sexy delve into the world of club Luminous. If you’ve been reading the series, you’ll recognize several of the characters already and this book brings us Rebecca and Bennett’s story. It’s another steamy one … maybe not quite as hot as the previous two, but a really good read!

Rebecca Morales can’t stand her rude and domineering boss! She works her tail off and gets no appreciation .. just attitude and snark. Imagine her surprise when she sees him at Luminous, using a whip on a woman … and she finds herself jealous and turned on. She doesn’t even like him, how can he possibly be making her want him??

Bennett Ashby knew Rebeecca would make a good assistant, but he didn’t realize how much it was going to drive him crazy with desire to be around her day in and day out. When he glances up and sees her standing there with interest and lust in her eyes, he knows he’s going to have her. They agree to one night … but will he be able to walk away after that?
