When an underage groupie stows away on his tour bus to be near her idol, rock superstar Damon Frost suddenly finds himself facing serious charges and a federal prosecutor out for blood. He could easily prove his innocence but only by revealing the secret he has hidden in the closet for years, destroying his image as a sex symbol.
Damon thinks a deal offered by US attorney Michael Rellman will save his reputation as a ladies man, but what will protect him from his growing feelings for the handsome prosecutor and the risk to his career?
“What are you doing?”
Damon jumped at Michael’s voice from the doorway. “I…um…” His attempt at nonchalance failed miserably as Michael walked towards him, likewise wearing only jeans, drawing Damon’s gaze to his ripped abs. “Just admiring your bed.”
As Michael curled his arms around Damon, he said, “I could admire it much more if you were in it,” then wasted not another moment before reuniting their mouths.
Chest against chest and tongue against tongue, Michael deepened the kiss as Damon relaxed in his embrace. Their lips moved in unison, but soon their hands had their own schemes—roaming over bare skin, touching, squeezing, fondling. To every movement Michael made, Damon responded. Every urge with which Damon pressured Michael, he responded. Damon’s lack of self-control shocked him as he shoved down Michael’s jeans and wrapped his hand around his gloriously hard cock. Once they both stood starkers holding each other, their mouths never ceasing their relentless pursuits, fear no longer caused his heart to race but desire. Need.
Michael grasped the sides of Damon’s head and broke the kiss, which left them with shallow labored breaths. Meeting Damon’s eyes, he said, “Let’s get into bed.”
An award-winning and bestselling author in a variety of genres under other pen names, Scarlet was a featured author at the 2014 BDSM Writers Conference in New York City and contributed an excerpt from her upcoming romantic suspense Retrograde to the first BDSM Writers Con Anthology.
Always eager to challenge herself as a writer, Scarlet utilized a “panoramic point of view” narrative style, rarely found in fiction today, in her erotic romantic suspense Deadline.
Scarlet lives with her two dogs and their Master in a lakeside community in the New Orleans area. When not devoting herself to writing or what Erica Jong refers to as the requisite “zitzfleisch,” Scarlet spends her free time drinking wine and eating cheese, taking long candlelit bubble baths, and playing with her dogs around the lake.
