Her future. His past. A deadly game of seduction.
By Amanda McIntyre
A scandalous betrayal sets Miss Jane Goodwin on an unexpected journey to London to pursue her dream of being the first female investigative journalist, but she soon finds herself in a hotbed of murder and controversy. Seduced by the passions of a mysterious lover and stalked by a madman, Jane falls prey to her desires as tensions mount, only to discover a deadly secret that threatens more than just her trust in men.
Inspector Randolph Mansfield is one of Scotland Yard’s elite, battling the dark secrets of his past while trying to solve a rash of grisly murders threatening to mar Queen Victoria’s Jubilee. His respite is the anonymity he finds in the decadence of a private gentleman’s club, until a determined American journalist goes undercover in search of her stalker and he finds the lines between protection and passion blurred. But as tensions heat and her life is threatened, he must choose whether to reveal his true identity at the risk of losing both her trust and his career.
“A wonderful blend of sexy romance and sinister mystery!”~ USA & NYT Bestselling author, Caridad Pineiro
“Do not worry, my sweet. We’ll be mindful of the rules.” He slipped away the mask and replaced it with the cravat, tying it around her eyes. He proceeded slowly to seduce her—raking his teeth below her ear, lifting her hair to leave a kiss on the nape of her neck. His hands guided hers over her breasts, proud and plump in the tight corset. He gripped her flesh, smoothing over her stomach, and lower still, caressing through the fabric, his long fingers stroking firmly.
With a soft moan, she wrenched her hands free. Her breathing was ragged. Jane’s thoughts tumbled in a dark, lusty haze. Had she not thought about this more than once in her dreams? What it would be like to be with such a man, so fearless, so strong? She could turn and call his bluff. Demand an explanation. But the allure of his seduction, her needs—the needs he’d created in her–won out over finding answers to her questions. Yes, tonight beneath the dim lights and the anonymity of masks, they could be who they wanted to be, take their pleasure at will, have their fill of whatever they desired.
His tongue circled her ear, fanning her pulse into a flame.
“What game shall we play, master?” she purred, leaning her head to the side giving him full access to her throat. The thought of tangled sheets, the weight of his body on hers, fueled her desire.
“Game, my pet?” He closed his mouth over her dangling earring, tugging it slowly between his lips. His fingertip barely touched her jaw. “I’m going to undress you.”
