Monday Smith is married to the mayor of New York City and struggles to keep her troubled past a secret. But when her husband’s thirst for high-priced sex leads them down an explosive path of passion, murder, and lies, she has to decide if her marriage is worth saving, and at what cost.

Collyn Bazemore, a Manhattan madam, deals with an elite clientele, and they pay big for the best sex in the city. One of Collyn’s most important customers, the mayor, has planned an erotic extravaganza in the Hamptons, but when he sends one of his associates to seal the deal, Collyn grows suspicious of this replacement–and yet her attraction to him is undeniable. While her mind tells her no, her body aches to say yes, and just when he melts her in all the right places, it turns out he has a few secrets of his own.

These two women are bound together by an erotically charged past, and when their carefully crafted facades start to crumble, neither will ever be the same.

Editorial Reviews

“Nothing is off-limits in Risqué’s tantalizing and intensely stimulating debut novel. Prepare to be entertained, enthralled, and scandalized!” –Crystal Lacey Winslow, author of The Criss Cross “So realistic that you better have either a lover nearby or a cold shower to jump into . . . Risqué has successfully made her mark in the erotica genre.”–Urban Reviews“With the passion of Zane and the gut-wrenching emotion of Noire, Risqué takes the erotic-fiction scene by storm.”–Danielle Santiago, author of Little Ghetto Girl“The new queen of erotica has entered the building. You’ll need a tall glass of water and an industrial-strength fan to cool you off while reading this steamy page-turner!”–De’nesha Diamond, co-author of Desperate Hoodwives
