Fleeing memories of her recent divorce and longing for some control over her life, Abigail Cosslin takes a two-week vacation at an exclusive resort that caters to its guests’ every desire. When she becomes involved with two of the resort’s mysterious, sexy owners, she doubles her pleasure, but what are they hiding?
Zachary Neville and Emmett Fallon are Nephilim who’ve been imprisoned on Earth for ninety years, and unless they fall in love with a mortal woman, they’re destined to live out eternity indulging in their favorite vices with no permanent satisfaction.
Zach and Emmett helped start Lilith’s Playground during Prohibition as a way to snub those who had a hand in their punishment, but each man longs for true love.
When they meet and seduce Abigail, hope begins to build. But will she believe their story and accept them on such terms? Or will she be lost to them forever?
Abigail Cosslin has booked herself in for two weeks to Lilith’s Playground – a hotel that caters to their client’s every desire. Upon arrival she meets the sexy Emmet Fallon who makes his attraction to her clear. Reciprocating his desire, Abigail joins him for dinner along with Emmet’s business partner and cousin, Zachary. But nothing is really what it seems, and what starts as a sexy romp to forget her ex leads to much more than she could have imagined.
I really enjoyed this author’s style. Easy and fun to read, I was quickly drawn in by both Emmet and Zachary. Neither man is what he appears to be at first and the surprises continue throughout the story. It took me a moment to catch up in places – some of the twists hit you from behind – but I thoroughly enjoyed the differences in what I originally felt would be another “adult hotel for your sexual gratification” style of book. With the plot twists and all three main characters being quite convoluted it all added up to a really interesting, fun book.
The sex is hot with mild tones of BDSM, though nothing too hard core to turn off less intrepid readers. I enjoyed how the erotic scenes added depth to the growing relationships between the characters. There was a wonderful balance between the conflicts of the plot and the steamy sex scenes – neither one overshadowed the other. I’d strongly recommend this as a naughty read to spice up an evening or two.
