The metal tips
of her stiletto shoes clicked against the black-and-white chequer-board floor
tiles; each step instinctively, without thought or effort, alternating between
black and white. As she made her stately progress across the tiled floor, she
mused on the aptness of the symbolism that reflected the extremities of the
world she inhabited and held sway over: darkness and light, cruelty and
kindness, pain and pleasure, humiliation and reward. She commanded over her
domain like a chess master playing a twisted and beautifully imagined chess
game in which she, the Red Queen with a black heart, orchestrated proceedings
and her slaves were pawns. She stood before her gothic mirror and admired her
image reflected within its black cast-iron frame. The Queen of Hearts was
“How do I look
Duchess?” she asked, turning to her transvestite companion and lady-in-waiting.
“I’m speechless,
madam, really I am. You look absolutely stunning, a true fetish red queen,” she
She examined her
image in the mirror carefully appraising every detail of her dress and make-up
to ensure it met her exacting standards. She held her body upright and smoothed
the shiny metallic red PVC panel of the ankle-length skirt, straightened her
ruby encrusted tiara and made a final adjustment to the black heart-shaped
choker around her neck. Yes, she thought, she looked perfect. 
She turned and
stepped off the black-and-white floor tiles taking a few steps to face one of
the male slaves who served in her realm. His wrists were secured with leather
cuffs, which had a rope attached to them and threaded through a metal ring
fixed into the ceiling pulled tight so that his arms were stretched out. His
ankles were similarly bound in leather cuffs and secured to rings set in the
floor, his legs stretched just wide enough to cause discomfort but for the
soles of his feet to lie flat on the black carpeted floor.
Hanging from him
his balls was a large cast-iron ball weight forged into the letter ‘N’. ‘N’ for
Nemesis, the Queen of Hearts smiled to herself, the name taken from the Greek
goddess of fate and retribution and one of the personas she adopted in the
fetish fantasy realm she had created and ruled over. She lifted the weight up
and traced her finger along the letter and then let it drop heavily. The
blindfolded man gasped as the velocity of the falling weight stretched his
balls. The Red Queen merely laughed sadistically at his predicament. She
gestured to the Duchess who, silently and secretly, stood behind her helpless
victim and lifted the blindfold from his eyes to reveal the vision of his mistress
transformed into the Queen of Hearts.
The cruel
piercing blue eyes, framed in ruby streaked ebony hair, met her victim’s as the
blindfold was removed permitting him to feast his eyes on her. He gasped and
then moaned in homage at the formidable and ravishing presence before him. She
stood there, her heaving cleavage held tight in a shiny electric red PVC bodice
festooned with black hearts and framed with a ruff in gold. This is the part I
love, she mused. The look in their eyes when she reveals herself; that look of
mesmerised devotion mixed with fear, fear of the unknown, fear of the seductive
torment they know she is capable of inflicting on them. 
“So, are you
ready to submit to the Queen of Hearts?” her voice whispered with more than a
hint of playfulness mingled with the malice.
“Yes mistress,”
was the breathless reply.
“Mistress?” the
inflection of her voice was raised and indignant, “Do you think that’s the
correct form of address for the Red Queen?”
“No your
majesty. I mean your majesty. Of course, I mean your majesty.”

Tagline: Taking your best friend’s place on a blind date to let the guy down easy was the plan, taking him to bed wasn’t!
Book Description:
After a heartbreaking betrayal, Melissa Legacy shuns romance. So when her best friend joins the Lovers Oasis website and fears her fiancé will find out, Melissa agrees to meet the anonymous Romeo, prepared to explain her friend’s change of heart—then she sees him.
Failing restaurant entrepreneur, Craig Wheaton hasn’t been home since his mother’s tragic death. Now he’s back to confront his demons and stand beside his brother as best man. Dreading the reunion, he agrees to meet his avatar lover, but at the last moment he reconsiders the arrangement—until he lays eyes on her.
When Craig assumes Melissa is his online consort, she impulsively plays along, resulting in an afternoon of unexpected intimacy. But with Melissa using her friend’s identity and Craig dealing with a family fallout, is a future together impossible, or will they discover that love at first sight is Only the Beginning?
Melissa blinked
a few times, trying to remember the dream. A sense of bliss made her smile into
the pillow. She was warm and the bed covers were tucked around her like a
cocoon. It must be Saturday, she thought.
There was a
shift in the bed behind her, followed by a low sigh.
She froze. In a
series of flashing images, it all came back.
The pub. Craig.
The intense stare of his eyes. The way he’d kissed her as he unzipped the back
of her skirt. He made her feel like she was the most desirable woman on the
planet, that there was nothing he wouldn’t do to keep touching her.
And she’d
reciprocated, opening up to him, losing all her inhibitions. She imagined this
was what Lovers’ Oasis was like. The anonymity combined with the fantasy
created a freedom Melissa had never experienced before, not ever.
But now reality
set in. She’d woken naked, next to a man she barely knew and the earlier
courage she’d felt—the reckless delirious abandonment that augmented her
physical enjoyment of the afternoon encounter—had morphed into terrified
There was only
one choice—she had to leave before he woke. Slowly, she slipped one leg out,
her foot searching for the floor. Then she inched her way to the edge of the
bed, carefully making sure not to jostle the mattress.
She stood,
completely naked, looking down at Craig. He was on his back, one hand was on
his chest gently rising and falling as he slept. The sheets pooled at his
waist. His face was completely relaxed, his mouth opened slightly, lips parted.
A warmth began
to stir inside her, remembering how those lips felt. He’d memorized each of her
breasts with his tongue as his fingers slipped down her belly then nestled
between her thighs. She’d come for him, then. So quickly…so easily.
Her purse buzzed
from the floor making Melissa jump. It sounded like a marching band had
exploded through the door. She crouched down and lunged for the purse, grabbing
the phone and silencing it. Melissa waited, but there was no movement from the
bed. A quiet breath eased through her pursed lips. She read her phone; there
were multiple messages from Brooke. The last one was marked “urgent.”
—Where are you?—

Tagline: Can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?
Book Description:
Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.
Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

wasn’t supposed to be this way. I was supposed to travel with him until he got
me out of Lexington City and then I was to make a run for it, kill him if I had
to—but I didn’t. I was supposed to stay with these people and leave Atticus to
do what he wanted, go where he wanted, without me—but I couldn’t. I was
supposed to be afraid of him not only because of the terrible man he was when I
first laid eyes on him, but also because he was a man—but I wasn’t. I wasn’t afraid of him.
I was
afraid for him.
I was
afraid of being without him…

up; my bottom lip quivered.

and nodded.

back with the horse. He tossed the quilt we’d slept on the night in the barn,
over the horse’s back. Then he went over to the backpacks, stepping around
Rachel’s unconscious body, and shoved everything back inside. He helped my arms
into the straps of the larger backpack.

a hold of the horse’s reins.

jacket between my legs. “And cut through the woods there”—he pointed toward the
back of the barn—“that’s west; just keep as straight as you can in that
direction, but don’t leave the woods.”

the highway where those who were coming for us would likely be, and then led me
around the barn. The deep woods beckoned me out ahead; I couldn’t help but feel
intimidated by them, as if they were some kind of final leg of our journey—or
the beginning of my journey alone.

eyes, the sculpted shape and rough texture of his handsome face, and I couldn’t
