Smooth-talking, twenty-nine-year-old Cruze Fontaine is tall, dark, and dreamy-eyed. Chiseled to perfection, the six-foot-four self-made millionaire is every woman's dream. With a reputation of giving toe-curling orgasms, this sex addict has a personal harem of vixens at his fingertips to satisfy his sexual appetite. But, after all the sweet nothings have been whispered and the shuddering climaxes are over, the salacious playboy finds himself yearning for something more.
But what happens when fate and wanton lust lands him in bed with someone just as emotionally detached and cunning as he?
Meet thirty-two-year old Arabia Knight. Runway ready and always fabulous, this beauty knows that the way to a man's wallet is through his libido. And this well-kept, materialistic diva is no stranger to turning on the charm, then luring her next big score into her web of seduction since the bigger the bank account, the greater the rewards.
The problem is, none of her middle-aged, wealthy benefactors fulfill her erotic yearnings, leaving her starved for someone with the sexual prowess she craves. But, as the saying goes: "Be careful what you wish for..."
And Arabia gets more than she could have ever imagined after a chance encounter with the enigmatic Cruze Fontaine. One night of animalistic pleasure unleashes her deepest, darkest desires, and sets off a chain of fiery events that leave them both breathless. With each having something to prove and everything to lose, Cruze and Arabia fight to defy the urgings of their hearts. But as temperatures rise and desires ignite, the two lovers quickly find themselves unraveling with want, and both learn that complete surrender can lead to unexpected love.

Hobbs (Power Couple) and Cairo (The Pleasure Zone) collaborate on a salacious, raunchy tale as two damaged characters journey from their darker inner impulses to the hopeful promise of redemptive love. Polished diva Arabia Knight, an advertising agency owner, loves being in control; it helps her ignore painful childhood memories. The urge for hot, naughty, raw sex drives Arabia to a Philadelphia club, where she prowls for a one-time adventure. Cruze Fontaine, dashingly handsome and rough around the edges, normally avoids public venues; it’s been a long time since he left New York, but the drug dealers who despise him have long memories. Like Arabia, Cruze thrives on control and is always looking for new sex partners, as trust and intimacy are not part of his repertoire. Cruze locks eyes with Arabia when she’s performing suggestive dance moves; they quickly proceed to a mutually exhilarating sexual encounter on the dance floor and an equally quick departure by Arabia. A chance business meeting reignites their sexual attraction, but both are hesitant to reveal their inner secrets. As the buds of a relationship start to bloom, an unexpected violent event may throw everything off track. Drama and scorching sex abound, and there’s more than a nod to romance, but readers may be dismayed by the abrupt ending, which leaves many issues unresolved. (Aug.)
