Assumed IS “Jules, pumpkin, wakey, wakey.”

“Go away, Blake,” Julie bit out over a groan. What was he doing in her house anyway? Did she forget to lock the door? “Please, leave me alone.”

“I can’t do that, shug. Dante and I need to get you out of this abominable yard chair and get you home. My God these flakey pink birds are horrendous,” Blake said, gently tapping her cheek. “Come now, you poor chemically out of balance mess.”

Yard chair? Birds? Crap, did the paper boy come already? No, that couldn’t be right. If he’d discovered her it would be a cop not Blake trying to bring her back to life.

“What time is it? How did you find me?” Julie opened her bleary eyes and looked around. Oh, those birds. Her eyes roamed again stopping when she saw her feet. “Where are my shoes?”

“Jesus,” Dante said, bending and lifting her in his arms in one swift motion. “She is snockered. My bet is Shelby had everything to do with this.”

“Nope, my fault for listening to her again . . .” Julie said just as her head hit Dante’s chest. God he felt good. Too bad he was gay.

AI BCWhen she woke up again she was fairly certain she was in bed. She didn’t dare move or open her eyes to the sun she sensed shining through an apparently curtain-less window. Dreading the prospect of actually having to leave the comforts of the downy retreat, Julie ran her swollen, fuzzy tongue along her cracked lips and tried to clear her scratchy throat.

“She lives,” Dante’s voice caressed her hair and his arm weighed heavy against her ribs.

“Does this mean I have to get up now?” Blake grumbled from further away.

He was in the bed, too? What had she done?

Shards of last night flitted through Julie’s mind and she determined that yes, she had fallen down the rabbit hole and had not managed to find her way back yet. Trying to sort through what might or might not be the events of the previous night, she slowly catalogued what she could remember. Dinner. Check. Sexy waiter. Check. Dancing. Too many cosmos. Cab ride. Check. Check. Check. Sex? No. Lawn chair? Yes. Now a bed . . . whose?

Synopsis: Innocent childhood games of dress-up and pretend . . .

Julie Stevens is as straight as they come. Or so she tries to convince herself. But it isn’t easy believing that little white lie when she has the two most sexually eccentric best friends on the planet. One is a bi-sexual Domme who believes if it looks fun, try it. The other is a gay man in the role of slave to his very sexy Master whom Julie often wishes wasn’t gay. Dante’s commanding presence makes her want to do things that set her on fire with need and embarrassment. Given her boring vanilla life, how exactly does she fit into their world? Would they like to have a shinier third wheel?

Are a completely different animal for grownups . . .

After one wild evening and a bit too much liquid encouragement, Julie discovers a side of herself she’s always tried to ignore. The realization she’s a sub not only scares her, it excites her and she yearns for more. But the process of finding the right man to teach her becomes a real issue, until Mason comes along. He’s everything Julie imagines a Dom should be. Armed with her masque and Renaissance costume, Julie is thrown for a loop when the handsome Master draws more willingness out of her than she ever thought possible. Is it possible she’s more than a submissive? And will the assumptions he’s made about her identity end up tearing them apart?
