Never mix business with pleasure, unless pleasure is your business.

Photojournalist Emily Peters gives herself the perfect birthday gift - a weekend in Paris. Her excitement builds when she hits the scene of the exclusive S&G Club. Exposing the truth behind their private pleasure chambers and the elite who frequent them will be the diamond in her career crown. At least Em thinks so until she’s tied up in knots by the Devil himself.

British restaurateur Nicholas Caine visits Paris to check on his S&G Club investment and to sample its many benefits. Nick’s not on the hunt until he encounters a tiger that pretends to be a kitten. There’s no doubt she’ll satisfactorily flex her claws given the right incentive.

What starts as a prime photo opportunity evolves into a weekend of erotic fantasies as Nick awakens Emily’s dark passions.

“What’s in this room?” Her heart skipped a beat. She couldn’t tell what excited her more, fear or pleasure, but she had her fingers crossed they would complete what he’d started a short time back. 

“An experience that definitely requires leading up to.”

He laid his warm hand over hers as she tried to turn the brass handle.

“Emily, what happens in here is not for everyone. Remember where you are.” He studied her. A small frown turned down his lips. “Do you understand me?”

A moment of reservation crossed her mind before she nodded. “Let’s go for it.”

“As you wish.” He pushed open the oak door with a large ornate dragon carved on the front panel. 

She wrinkled her nose as jasmine and smoky citrus assailed her the moment she crossed the threshold. The fragrance wasn’t necessarily unpleasant, just pungent. An array of votive and pillar candles lit the red and white room enough for her to make her way to a throne style chair.

“You are in my seat.” His voice took on an authoritative tone.

“I beg your pardon?” He couldn’t be serious.

Nick’s entire demeanor, from his stance to his face, changed to a man in control. “You will move to the side.”

She jumped off the uncomfortable chair and was convinced the booze made her do it.

“Pour me a drink.”

Apparently “please” and “thank you” had obliterated themselves from his vocabulary.

The hairs on the back of her neck jumped to attention at his directive. Her brow furrowed as she fingered a bottle of Sake on a silver tray. She glanced over her shoulder at Nick. When the hell had she walked across the room?

She carried the drink back to his highness. He had shrugged into a red silk robe embroidered with gold thread and had perched himself on the gilded chair like a king awaiting his handmaiden. His change in attitude excited her.

Em glanced around, not wanting to meet his eyes for fear he guessed her little secret, when she spotted the elaborate beaded headdresses that decorated two walls.

“Do not even think of it.” He never bothered to look at her, but had somehow sensed her appreciation and desire to wear one of the gem studded crowns.

She tossed her head with a haughty air. “I have no idea what you mean.”

He ignored her lie and pointed toward another tray. “I’ll have a small plate of sushi.”

Emily had had plenty to drink, way over her normal limit, but she wasn’t drunk enough yet to tolerate much more of Nick’s little attitude, no matter how sexy he was. Pick your battles, her mother had always advised. She’d submit one more time, but—

The silver tongs slipped from her fingers and clattered on the china plate.

“Careful, Emily, I would hate to see you get hurt.”

She glanced over her shoulder at his concerned face. From barn boss to tender in a heartbeat confused her.

“Okay, Nicky, what the hell is going on here?” She laid his fishplate onto a strange little end table at his right and was careful not to let the fork fall between the intricate open latticework.

“You asked to see what was in this room.” He slid an eel roll into his mouth and chewed.

His Adam’s apple bobbed as he swallowed. Her nipples hardened and she forced herself to concentrate on his words.

“I decided to give you the full experience, first hand.” 

“I hope there’s more to this than slavery.”

“Much more, my little novice. There is pleasure and teaching too few in this world enjoy.” His lips curved into a sensual smile. “The greatest lesson in life that one can learn is to forgive.” Nick pressed the remote that opened the red silken drapes.

A dainty Asian woman swayed from the ceiling bound in a complex design of involved rope twists. She resembled a small bird about to fall to its death, Emily winced as the lady raised her head. The thin rope, running from her neck to her vagina, had to pull like hell against her tender flesh.

“It looks painful.” Emily tilted her head to the side, curious to see the expression on the captive’s face.

“Not really. There might be a bit of chafing when it’s over, maybe some light stinging, but great care is taken to ensure no injuries occur. It’s all very sophisticated. We use candles along with oils and incense to enhance the experience.” He gestured an arm around their room. “Very much like you see here, which helps to set the voyeur’s mood.”

“So what’s this non-painful, lesson learning, stylish form of torment called?” She avoided his eyes, a bit afraid of what might come next.

“Kinbaku, which translates to beautiful bondage…
