Danielle Sosna has no problem denying herself in order to achieve her goals—after all, that attitude landed her a dream job at Vogue Paris. But in New Orleans for one last assignment before heading overseas, she's faced with the most decadent of temptations. Seductive Cajun chef Bobby Prejean takes Dani's strength of will as a challenge, and offers her a night of wild indulgence—if she will agree to obey his every command…
Dani can't resist Prejean's invitation to join him in a world of carnal desire, complete with fetish costumes and masks. Determined to keep her emotional distance, she gives Prejean everything but her name. A night becomes a week, as she spends Mardi Gras suspended…in the delicious space where pleasure meets pain.
Too late, she realizes the cloak of anonymity has not protected her—and that chasing her dream might come at the expense of her heart.

Book 2 Facets of Passion
Althea Grant is doing fine. Sure, her Charleston gallery is suffering from the bad economy, and her artistic aspirations have gone nowhere. But she’s happy enough. When rugged metal sculptor Steel rides up on his motorcycle looking to rent studio space, his infusion of cash is more than welcome. But his art is raw, visceral, sexual—and completely inappropriate for her pastel world of watercolor landscapes.
Steel, fascinated by Althea’s rare albino coloring, sees in her the key to his next piece: a metal satyr that can be used for bondage games. Moving into her gallery basement is the first step; seducing the coolly polite lady into modeling for him is the second.
As Steel peels away her careful manners and tasteful outfits, Althea begins to realize her life isn’t just fine at all—it’s as pale and washed-out as the watercolor paintings she’s failing to sell. Can she transform her life and accept her most secret desires?
Book 1 Facets of Passion
By Jeffe Kennedy
Publisher: Carina Press
A successful executive, M. Taylor Hamilton is on track with her ten-year plan. Too bad her personal life consists of hitting the gym and grocery shopping. Enter the seductive Adam Kirliss. They may have a working relationship, but everything changes at an office party when he handcuffs her to the rail of a yacht. Taylor writes the adventure off as too much champagne, but when Adam challenges her to a date, she agrees to meet up with him. And follow his rules. They share a night of exquisite intimacy, brimming with both pain and pleasure. But afterwards, fearful of losing her heart, Taylor pulls back emotionally. Adam is determined to prove that she longs for the loss of control he can give her – and the passionate release it provides. How can he make her see that he wants her, and not just her body?
Kirliss captured her other wrist and held them close in front of her, his warm fingers massaging her skin, while he studied her face. The boat surged over a wave, disturbing her balance. Kirliss’s unusual eyes caught the light, boring into her.
“This is silly,” she tried.
“Do you want me to make you stay?”
“What?” Taylor choked. She couldn’t let him treat her this way. “No! You’ll do no such—”
She lost her breath entirely when he pressed up against her. Thinking he was trying to embrace her, she pulled away and found herself backed against the brass railing.
By the time she gathered her flustered thoughts, her wrists were handcuffed to the rail behind her. Mortified, a bit afraid and—worse—suddenly and wildly aroused…

~~~~~MY REVIEW~~~~~Woowza!!! This was a steamy series! Yummy quick reads that were deliciously erotic!
The books are a series but not really connected in a manner that makes you read them in order. I do not usually agree that a series can be read stand alone but this is an exception.
The first book Sapphire was highly erotic! I was with the story from the beginning to the end! I loved the characters and was really rooting for them! Taylor had a tight hold on her control reigns and it took all of Adam's charm and charisma to bring her around! And oh Lord the steam factor!! There is a really sexy scene in the beginning with hand cuffs that had me fanning myself!
The second book Platinum was a little disappointing. Still a good story and loads of steamy action but these characters did not have as much appeal for me. Althea just never connected with me. I did really enjoy Steel who was a total bad boy biker fantasy!! Yummilicious!! The story here felt a little rushed but was still enjoyable.
The third book in the series Ruby another deliciously erotic read!! Bobby is just my kind of Dom, sensual and oh so masterful!! Yes, Chef!! I loved the chemistry between Bobby and Dani!! Sometimes I like to sit back and watch the sparks fly!! Dani was terrific and no wilting flower! I love a gal with attitude! This was another steamy as all get out read that had me fanning myself!
The whole series is very well done and sweetly erotic. There is BDSM play but it wasn't overly heavy. More along the lines of kinky play than hardcore stuff. They are all fairly quick read being more novella length, I would have loved them to be a touch longer. They felt a little rushed and I really felt there was more to explore in all the relationships.
In the end great story telling with engaging characters. Yummy cover art! Ms Kennedy has definitely made my stalking...um, authors to watch list!
