Las Vegas. A carousel town set in the middle of the desert. Blazing neon signs promise all the vices known to man, and then some. Devastatingly handsome ladies’ man Nico Constantine hits town to make a killing at the casinos. But instead of tripling what’s left of his dwindled fortune, he ends up losing everything, and owing the mob — big time.
Meanwhile, gloriously beautiful Fontaine Khaled has shed her filthy rich husband for the life she really wants: a riotous whirl of champagne, designer clothes, and the hottest, sexiest men. But her never-ending party comes with a price — one even her ex-husband’s outrageous alimony payments can’t afford.
When Nico collides with Fontaine, their mutual lust is immediate and intense. Nico will need to use her if he wants to stay alive, and Fontaine fears she’s met her match.
As Selena’s fantasies become reality, the price of pleasure is complete submission…
Darius Gaspari has always been out of reach. Selena knows she doesn’t have a chance with a man as gorgeous and charismatic as her co-worker. Watching him from afar and fantasizing about what could never be is the most she could do to satisfy her longing. That is until a new neighbor moves next door and neglects to put curtains in his bathroom window.
Selena doesn’t mean to peek but can’t stop herself – just the sight of the mystery man’s muscled physique in the shower has her aching with lust. Although she knows it’s wrong, she just can’t stop herself enjoying the show he puts on everyday. But little does Selena know this man may not be as mysterious as she first thought. And when he finally confronts her after getting caught, what is revealed about him will turn Selena’s world upside down.
