Book One: Masquerade

Frigid bitch. The words seep into Beth Ritmour's soul, no matter how hard she tries to deny them. A year after her divorce, they still haunt her. So when a mysterious benefactor offers a solution to her problem, Beth takes a vacation from her job as a dental hygienist and follows a cryptic note to Chicago, where she’s soon ensconced as a waitress at Club Masquerade. Although how she’s going to prove she’s not frigid is hard to figure out when the boss makes it very clear that sex, or any precursors to sex, with patrons or employees is strictly taboo. It’s not an easy rule to follow, especially when one deliciously hot bartender keeps very, very close tabs on her.

Excerpt (from Masquerade - Book 1)

    Beth grasped the pole with both hands and arched her back. When she did, hair she'd loosened from its clip fell almost to the floor. Her eyes remained closed, but with her head bent back, it showed off the column of her neck and...
    Anthony went rock hard as he watched breasts he'd had wet dreams about almost spill out of her costume. He heard the collective gasp of the men as she swayed back and forth. Still keeping time with the slow, sensual beat of the music, Beth rose to meet the pole, slid to a squat, and stretched one leg behind her. With the stage elevated and that tiny uniform she wore, there wasn't much left to the imagination. Half her ass was bare for the whole place to see. A glance around the room proved that she'd captured the attention of the entire place.
    She stood and pushed her ass out toward the audience. Jesus! Was that a scrap of red he saw? Was she really giving them a view of her panties? Anthony wanted to kill the fucking spotlight that showcased Beth.
    He could see the satisfaction all over her face, in the slight upturn of her lips, and in the lack of tension. It looked like she was getting off on this.
Beth arched back, slid her leg in a semi-circle, and then raised it up until it spanned the pole. Holy shit. Where had she learned a trick like that? She leaned back and pushed one leg up until she was damn near doing vertical splits.
    Anthony's cock twitched as his jaw hit the floor. It took a limber woman to pull something like that off. Limber and strong. He wanted those legs wrapped around him, clinging to him, loving him.
    As Beth wrapped the pole with her leg and leaned back again, showcasing tits still on the edge of full disclosure, a man in front of Anthony stood and moved toward Beth.
    Anthony sprinted to catch up to the guy, who was now trying to climb onto the stage. He grabbed the man's shoulder but was brushed off. So Anthony grabbed hold again. The guy whirled on him, fist first, and managed to connect with Anthony's jaw. The force spun him around.
    With Beth at risk, Anthony rebounded lightning fast. He grabbed the guy's shirt from the back, yanked him off the stage, and plowed his fist into the guy's gut. The man went down just as the bouncer showed up, but Anthony no longer cared. He jumped onto the stage, grabbed Beth, threw her over his shoulder, and left to the catcalls of everyone in the place.

Author Info

jsAfter years of searching, Lace settled down with a man whose first words to her were "Save me a dance." That's all it took. Four little words and she was a goner. Twenty years later, she still remembers that first kiss, standing beside his yellow Ford Mustang cool car. (Yes, it was yellow. "Hey," Lace says. "It was cool at the time.") And it still is in her mind and in her heart. That kiss and the future love it represented is the reason she enjoys stories filled with romance and emotion.
And dancing. Always dancing.
