Rachel Malone has it all: beauty, brains and talent. She has brought the world of erotic romance to its knees, but something crucial is missing from her life: a man to play power games with. One night at a routine book signing, she finds the spice she needs in the form of Lucian Drake. Sinfully handsome and more erotic than any hero she's ever written, he is the perfect man to help her live out her wildest fantasies.

When a copy of Rachel's latest steamy offering finds its way into his hands, Lucian Drake can't rest until he meets the woman behind the sensual words. He longs to experience her passion and lose himself in the enigmatic depths of her eyes. As their torrid affair deepens into love, danger lurks in the shadows as someone tries to tear them apart... literally.


Rachel stood in the darkness as he closed and locked the door behind her, her heavy breathing audible to her own ears. She could hear him walking towards her, his steps slow and sure. It was as if he knew to take his time, prolonging her ache and increasing her arousal. She felt like an open book around him, that all he had to do was look at her to know her secrets. He reached out for her and turned her around, his face in shadow.

Neither of them said a word as he removed their coats. He bent his head to kiss her, and she opened to accept his tongue. Rachel allowed herself to be swept away again by the taste of cinnamon, not realizing that he had moved them into the bedroom until he pulled away. He tenderly caressed her face and neck before moving down to the buttons of her red silk blouse. She could feel his calloused fingers against her exposed skin as he moved down the row of fastenings, and she shuddered.

He peeled away the blouse to reveal a matching bra, and she felt her heart beat faster at the sound of his appreciative groan. He kissed her again, his hands going to the side zipper of her skirt and sliding it down. The garment fell to the floor, and she stepped out of it. "You are so beautiful," he whispered hoarsely as he stared at her.

Rachel kicked off her pumps and laid down on his large bed, her chest heaving with desire as she looked up at him. "It's your turn now. I want to see you."

With hasty movements, Lucian stripped off his t-shirt and tossed it to the floor. She felt her mouth water at the sight of his broad chest, his dusky nipples begging for her to lick them. The dark trail of hair called out to her, bringing her gaze down to his magnificent abdomen before disappearing into the waistband of his jeans. She licked her lips, wanting to take his cock into her mouth.

Lucian got rid of his boots and socks before walking to the side of the bed. He reached for his belt, his silver eyes speaking of pleasures yet to come. He unbuckled it, dragging it slowly through the belt loops. For her, the wait was excruciating. She began to rise from the bed, but he stopped her with a firm "no."

She grew more excited by the power behind his tone, and she fell back against the pillows. Her mind reeled at what was about to happen. His hand went to the button fly of his jeans, and she forgot to breathe. His eyes never leaving her face, he yanked it open and she saw the outline of his cock as it strained against his briefs. She rolled her nipples through the lace of her bra, hot for him. "Lucian, please..."

He placed the belt on the bed before climbing on top of her. She released a sexy whimper at the feel of his weight on her body, purposefully inflaming him with the sound.

Rachel eyed the belt beside her and flushed with need. In the past, she had asked other lovers to dominate and restrain her in bed, but they refused. Frustrated by the lack of power games in her real life, she began to write novels that featured all the things that she had wanted for herself. Her latest book, "Love's Captive," was known as her hottest work of all time.

She stretched her arms above her head, her breasts riding high and drawing his gaze. Closing her eyes, she felt the delicious helplessness that she had craved for so long. All the nights that she had lain in bed touching herself, imagining a strong man moving powerfully above and within her, taking her to incredible heights.

"You want this, don't you?" His throaty whisper teased her senses, and she opened her eyes to see him watching her, his long fingers stroking the belt he held. Breathless, she nodded.

He wanted it too; she knew it from the way his hands stroked her skin as he moved her wrists to the bars that made up the headboard, from his deep groan when he wrapped the leather belt around them. He tightened the strap, sealing her fate.
