Years after being targeted in a violent, public attack, Seneca Graves is no
longer the women she was. Once a forceful and outgoing writer and
BDSM lifestyle advocate, she now secludes herself behind walls both
physical and mental. When other survivors of the attack begin showing
up dead, Seneca’s life is again bound up with her former lover,
Special Agent John Book of the FBI. Their bond, and his willingness
to submit, draws out Seneca’s strength and dominance.
At the same time, Holly Rabb and Jason Wills of the local police join
the investigation. They are partners, dealing with their own feelings
and dangerous flirtations. All are thrown together in a swirling mix
of mystery, murder, and heated attraction as Seneca and Book become
mentors to Holly and Jason in feminine-led love.
As the pressures of romance and investigations come to a head, secrets
are revealed that put lives and careers at risk. The mystery deepens
as Seneca makes plans for a return to public life, bringing the
connections–and passion–to a head. Danger collides with sex, whips
with skin, and dominance with love. Not just Seneca, but all four
lovers must evolve and learn as a new killer rises to threaten them
all, once again in a very public confrontation.

His feet, still shod, dangled from the edge of the bed. His legs were slightly splayed, and where they came together… Holly looked away even though she knew then, she was just pretending again.Her own clothing, the old jeans and worn flannel shirt, both perfectly soft, began to feel like starched canvas.Like a wool straitjacket.She pulled the tail of her shirt out and let it fall loose. It helped a little, but there was no denying that the tension was not really in her clothing.No. No. No.Her mind raced as she went to her knees and began untying Jason’s shoes. Her fingers only told her yes, and they spoke in measured cadences, a slow military march of sensation that could not be opposed.When Jason’s feet were bare, Holly stood. She thought about removing his pants but was afraid that would be going too far.And not far enough.She backed to the door. Her feet were slow, as if she were walking against a current.“Wait,” Jason said.His voice was clear and firm, but Holly still struggled against the current. It was easier to fight than to give in, because she knew that there was so much more to changing her direction than simply wanting to.“Please,” he said.“I can’t.” Holly hesitated at the door frame, half in the room and half out. Half in the light and half… For the first time she looked at his eyes. They were open and questioning.
