Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she’s sure it’ll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora’s fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it’s no deal.

Nora’s grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.


Review:  I am blown away by the depth and layer of Nora. She is overflowing with confidence and unapologetic in her passions, straight forward in her opinions and with each page I wanted more of her. Her inner conflicts resonated with me, connected me to her and kept me on edge.

Zach, Søren and Wesley are three men in Nora’s life for different reasons. Zach is an editor and assigned to Nora’s new erotica book. He is layered and conflicted with an attitude that, in combination with Nora, made the pages sizzle and burn just by their interaction alone. Wesley is this sweet heart man, completely under Nora’s spell. He brings a fresh faced innocence to the story that the other characters can’t. And then there’s Søren. I wanted to fight him, to scream at him, I wanted him out of the story and yet I was utterly spellbound by him. He got a rise out of me with his self-assuredness. His past with Nora is rooted in so much emotions and each interaction between him and Nora made me feel every bit of it.

What a great story. With such deep characters with rich backgrounds intertwined together, it was hard to not love this story. When I received this book, I expected it to be nothing more than another traditional romance. Boy was I wrong! Each character brought so much to the table that this book will surely stick with me for some time. To say that this was a romance or erotica is putting too distinct a label on this book. The only way to describe it is to say “you haven’t read it already!?!?!” Add this book to the top of your read list, it will not disappoint at all.
