New Year’s Eve, the time when people wash away one year and welcome the next.
Tessa Richards is no different.
As the eighteen-year-old fancies herself for a night out with her best friend, Aimee Butler, excitement ripples through her nerves with the idea of spending the occasion at a night club dancing in the New Year.
Much to Tessa’s surprise, Aimee hasn’t been entirely honest. Her best friend sets them up at a party hosted by the object of Tessa’s affection; the gorgeous and enigmatic Ethan Alderidge.
Talking for the first time, an instant connection zaps between the two.
Tessa’s inexperience and untimely humour lead her away from the experienced cool and collective dream man.
As she plays the wallflower and stands alone in the garden contemplating her thoughts, the stroke of midnight ticks closer.
The cheers of the countdown—Ten, nine, eight, seven, six—echo in her ears from inside the party.
Her eyes meet Ethan in the threshold with midnight only seconds away.
Tessa’s mind races unsure if she will get that first kiss from the man of her dreams.
This is a new series of short stories from husband and wife writing team, Zane and Jenna Michaelson.
Raven lived the life of a submissive 24/7. She was under the care of her Master, Seth Thomas, who treated her well, using her as she enjoyed and letting her live freely on his estate with his other submissives, who came and went as they wished.
Seth kept his kinky side secret from his family so when he was called overseas for family business that would take a month, he turned to fellos Doms in the lifestyle to help him care for his pet.
Kade Reynolds was a meticulous dominant. He’d plan and execute his scenes carefully. His submissives were always cared for, but he never let his emotions get involved. With each scene, he wanted to push himself further. When he was approached to care for Raven while her Master was gone, he jumped at the chance for something new. A live in submissive who would obey any command given by the person holding her leash. Kade enjoys it far more than he thought he would. When Seth returns for his pet, will Kade be able to hand over the leash?
This is the first book in the Club Wicked Cove series. Desperation is a story about Colt Fargo, the owner of Club Wicked Cove, and Ceejay Powell, a woman driven by her past to join the lifestyle in an effort to find absolution for her guilt.
Colt happens upon Lady Silver involved in a scene that contravenes the ethics of his club and sets out to find what motivates her to demand such a scene each every time, subsequently giving her an ultimatum that she must accept if she wants to remain a member of the club.
The instantaneous attraction between them sends Colt on a mission to break through the wall to assuage the pain in Ceejay’s heart. In his quest, she finds the key to his guarded past and soon they are both fighting off the siege of emotions that threatens to overwhelm them.
By a quirk of fate, their dark association with the mob soon jeopardizes the solace that Colt Fargo has found in obscurity in the backwater town of Jacksonville, Texas in his quest to escape the life he once led as a reluctant member of a powerful American crime family whose long tentacles are now within striking distance of reeling him back in and squeezing the life out of Ceejay Powell.
This story ends in a cliffhanger…to continue in book 1, Part 2, Desperation: Colt’s Acquittal.
