Holland, aka Cheyenne McCray, continues the Wonderland series (after Taken by Passion) with an unabashedly kinky erotic romance first published online as King of Spades (Ellora’s Cave, 2003). High-powered attorney Alexi O’Brien has spent a year searching for her twin sister, Alice, little knowing she’s become the Queen of Hearts in Tarok, a fantasy realm where women are sexually submissive. Darronn, the King of Spades, draws Alexi into Tarok as his ordained mate, but drama ensues when he demands her subservience. Foolishly, he concludes that he needs time to win her over before revealing Alice’s whereabouts. Though the suspicious Alexi comes to crave Darronn’s sexual dominance, her explosive fury when she learns his secret teaches him a thing or two about equality. (Nov.)
