In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, #1New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there s only one thing left to do: cross them. And never have the consequences of erotic exploration been so irresistibly inviting, so shockingly intimate, and so totally unexpected
Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn t give her: dominance. Lonely, searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she d find would be the one man who s long been a source of comfort and secret longing. Her husband s best friend.
Dash has lived in an untenable position for years: in love with his best friend s wife but unwilling to act on that attraction. He d never betray his best friend. And so he s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.
When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her love her. And the only man she ll ever submit to."

In this fiery erotic trilogy launch, two lovers explore the heights of domination, submission, pain, and pleasure—and find romance along the way. Three years after the sudden death of Joss Breckenridge’s husband, Carson, Joss is ready to move on. Though their marriage was a happy one, Carson could never be the dominant she’d always dreamed of submitting to. Now she wants to seek a dominant lover and see whether reality can live up to her fantasies. To her surprise, she discovers that Dash Corbin, Carson’s best friend, is dominant and has been attracted to Joss for many years. The plot drags at times, and the conflict—which is almost entirely centered on various characters recovering from Carson’s death—is somewhat contrived, but Joss and Dash are pleasant enough that rooting for their happiness comes naturally, and blazingly intense sex scenes will keep readers turning pages. This will satisfy fans of the racier passages in Banks’s previous novels as well as those looking for a little kink in their erotica. (Feb.)
