Genre: Dark Romance, May/December, BDSM, Erotic Contemporary

Ex-con Carolyn Lucchesi receives a shock nastier than another prison sentence when she discovers she inadvertently lied to the police. Uncle Tony had sworn to her the man in the photo taken from the video footage of a robbery at an art museum was none other than infamous ex-con and jewel thief Jagger Tyrell. But when Jagger confronts her in the park, he tells a different story. One that, if true, means her uncle lied to her and set her up for a parole violation.

Jagger has spent nine years avoiding his former associates, and anything to do with prison or the police. When Carolyn’s lie thrusts him back into the spotlight, he uses everything at his disposal, including Carolyn’s body, to find out who is trying to frame him for a crime he did not commit, and why. But falling in love with Carolyn is not in the plans…

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, rimming, spanking


“Keep your head down and act like you’re with me.”

“Do you bring women carrying luggage here often?”

As he swiped his card key, he chuckled softly. “You’re interested in my sex life now?”

“Not particularly.”

“Isn’t that why you asked the question?”

No answer, which had Jagger grinning once more. His cock was hard again, no doubt helped along by having his arm around Carolyn as he steered her toward the elevator. “There’s a camera in there, too.”

Once the car began to move, he pulled her closer and nuzzled her neck. “Just making it look good.”

“A bit too convincing.”

A deep inhale brought the scents of outdoors and honeysuckle into his nose. Was the honeysuckle from her shampoo? “Why? Aren’t you enjoying it?”

“If there was no camera in here, would you still be doing this?” Oh, he liked that. She questioned everything, the same way he did. “Maybe.”


“Are you fishing for compliments, Carolyn?”

“No, but I am curious.”

“You’re a beautiful woman with a hot body and very pretty eyes. What other reason do I need?”

He felt her shiver, and couldn’t help grinning again.

“Is that why you really brought me here, Jagger? To seduce me?”

They were almost to his floor. “No. I didn’t lie about that. Although now that you put the thought out there…” The doors opened, and Jagger was grateful no one was in the hallway.

“Now that I put the thought out there what?”

“Do you want me to seduce you, Carolyn?”
