He’s been treating her to such special moments and their current encounter is one of them. Indulging in their wildest fantasies, their love life has been unlike anything she’s ever known. Granted, the one fantasy she wishes she could have is one she knows will never happen. Or so she thinks.

Blind-folded and accosted upon stepping inside the suite, Gwen’s expectation rises as things take a heated turn. She’s delighted to find that her every dream is coming true and enjoys every minute of their encounter.
When her imagination starts to get the best of her, Gwen begins to wonder if her husband is truly fulfilling her fantasies. The emotions she experiences are so very really. She no longer knows what is real and what is not. For love, she’ll do whatever is necessary, including succumbing to the fervent passion that’s now coursing throughout her entire body.

She lives for these parties, eager to partake of the excitement as much as possible. Her parties have been the talk of the town and gives people the chance to give in to their innermost desires.

About The Author:
Amelia James started reading steamy romance novels in junior high, but her mom took them away from her, so she started daydreaming instead. After she got married, she wrote some of her naughtier daydreams down and sent them to Playgirl magazine. Two of them got published. She kept daydreaming and writing stories until her dirty stories turned into trashy books.
She lives in Colorado, but she’ll always be a loyal Wisconsin Cheesehead. When she’s not lusting after her next bad boy hero, she looks for inspiration in sci-fi and action movies, football players, bloodsucking lawyers, muscle cars, and kick-butt chicks.
