Erotic | Romance Erotica Sensual

Cassandra Whitman is having a rough day at work. Her dream job is working at an art gallery but her lack of ambition has kept her waitressing at a Las Vegas steakhouse where the tips are good and help her pay the rent. Since she caught her now-ex-boyfriend, the manager, cheating with another waitress, work seems unbearable. Enter hot and sexy Ryan Haverty who took one look at the waitress in the black-seamed stockings and fell instantly in lust. Cassandra impulsively decides to shed her good-girl skin and takes off with Ryan for a night of fun in Vegas. Soon they are both shedding their inhibitions and playing fun and sexy games that involve costumes and role-play.

Ryan has spent most of his adult life suppressing his urge for sexy game-play. A Major in the 64th Aggressor Squadron he knows the Air Force would frown on his unusual activities, especially when some of their games go public and they risk getting caught. He also worries about imposing his own "deviance" on Cass, so he works to keep sex "normal." For her part, Cass doesn't understand the reservation she senses from Ryan when it comes to sex. They are learning to trust each other with their family, personal, and work issues. Can they get past Ryan's fears to trust each other in every way?

DOUBLE DOWN is a sexy, fun, and emotionally rich erotic romance. I loved Cass and Ryan, individually and as a couple. Their sexy game play was adventurous, charming, and fun. The challenge Ryan faces in embracing his sexual desires parallels Cass's need to take control of her professional life. They both must have the courage to take risks to get what they want. The relationship outside of the bedroom was strong, with each challenging the other to take those leaps of faith required in building the life you want.

DOUBLE DOWN, the first book in the Vegas Top Guns series, has left me eagerly anticipating the next book in the series, Inside Bet. The glimpse I got of some of Ryan's squadron definitely captured my interest and I can't wait to see what's next.

Learn more about Double Down


As part of the 64th Aggressor Squadron, Major Ryan “Fang” Haverty flies like the enemy to teach Allied pilots how not to die. The glittering excess of the Strip can’t compare to the glowing jet engines of his F-16. But a sexy, redheaded waitress in seamed stockings? Now she gets his blood pumping.

Cassandra Whitman’s good-girl ways haven’t earned any slack from her manager ex-boyfriend, or prevented a bad case of frazzle from holding down two and a half jobs. She sure wouldn’t mind letting the handsome Southern charmer shake up her routine.

Their wild weekend lives up to Sin City’s reputation. Especially when they discover a matched passion for roleplaying. For Cass, it’s an exciting departure from her normal, shy persona. But for Ryan, it triggers memories of a time when his fetish drove away the woman he loved—leaving him reluctant to risk a repeat performance.

Except Cass refuses to settle for ordinary ever again. She’s about to show the man with hair-trigger hands that she’s got a few surprise moves of her own.

Warning: This book contains dirty-hot roleplaying, featuring an all-alpha fighter pilot and an ambitious waitress with a fabulous imagination. Also: dressing-room sex, a plaid schoolgirl skirt, and a sprinkling of spankings.
