When Danielle Sosna takes one last assignment in New Orleans before heading to France and her dream job at Vogue Paris, she’s all business and not interested in savoring the city’s supposed sensual treasures. She certainly doesn’t plan to succumb to the temptation presented by the seductive Cajun chef Bobby Prejean. Dani prides herself on her self-discipline, so she knows that nothing Prejean offers, not even his lurid teasing of decadence and sexual adventures beyond imagining, will make her lose sight of her goals.

Undaunted by Dani’s stubborn resistance, Bobby Prejean gladly accepts the challenge of chipping away at the enticing, gray-eyed woman’s strength of will. The tough ones always have the sweetest, hottest interiors. Because she refuses to give him even her name, he dubs her Ruby and entices Dani to enjoy her anonymity, to taste the pleasures of a single night of wild indulgence, as she’d never allow herself otherwise. The only rule is she must agree to obey his every command.

As Dani discovers the carnal underbelly of New Orleans, the fetish clubs and extravagant parties, she finds herself liberated by the masks Prejean ties on her, and the other bonds and toys he uses to tease her. The one night spins into a week of delirious suspension between pleasure and pain, indulging in all kinds of feasts, of the palate and the flesh. But no mask can disguise what Dani begins to feel for her piratical lover, a fascinating man who alternates between feeding her gourmet meals and tormenting her beyond reason.

She might even be tempted to stay forever—except that she has plans, and Dani has never changed her plans in her entire life…


“The third book in Kennedy’s “Facets of Passion” series (after Sapphire) is a hot and sensual read. Dani and Bobby lead each other on a sexy chase through nights of kinky sex, dominance, and submission, and the New Orleans setting lends a steady heat to the story.” Library Journal
