"The highly anticipated story of Zane, Janie and Kalin was well worth its weight in blood.' Synopsis - Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life… Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude.

Sinful Rewards And Dating Naked

One of my guilty pleasures is watching episodes of Dating Naked. Dating Naked is exactly what it sounds like—the participants go on blind dates while completely naked. The premise is that when people bare their bodies, they bare themselves. This is similar to one of the premises of Sinful Rewards. When Bee first looks at Hawke, he’s standing on his balcony, completely naked. He has tattoos and scars. She reads his past on his skin. He’s open about who he is and what he wants. In contrast, both Bee and Nicolas are very careful about who sees their bare bodies and who sees their true selves. They keep secrets, hiding under layers of clothing. Thanks to Friendly, the mysterious texter, Bee engages in more and more daring displays of exhibitionism, revealing her body and her true self. Nicolas doesn’t reveal his body until Sinful Rewards 6, when he showers at...

Excerpt and review from Chapter 4 - Snow Phoenix and Me

It was a hazy dawn. Swirling silver mists were veiling the streets; the dew on the green leaves was twinkling; and the air came fresh from the south. The sun had just risen above the far mountains when I reached the eastern gate of Shanghai. Suet-foong was already there, all saddled up and ready to go. Her horse was strong and powerful - a splendid, clean-limbed animal with its glistened black coat, braided mane on its proud neck, and its long tail gliding in the wind; it could give Flash a run for his money! "You are punctual," I said, looking at my watch. It was 6:50 A.M. We were supposed to meet at seven. "It's in the genes," replied Suet-foong. She was clad in a leather coat over a sweater and black pants - she seemed to like wearing pants. "Anyway, I have to get up early today to...
