Delaine Talbot has a secret. When a matter of life and death threatens to tear apart her family, Delaine makes the ultimate sacrifice. She auctions herself off at Chicago’s most exclusive erotic club. Now she belongs to Noah Crawford, a wealthy mogul who introduces her to a seductive feast of the senses, awakening desires she only dreamed about. 
Noah doesn’t know why Delaine sold her body for a cool two mil. But it’s the perfect business arrangement. The inexperienced beauty will learn to satisfy his every sensual need, yet never touch his heart. Almost immediately their relationship generates heat—in more ways than one. When they fight, they take no prisoners. When they love, they show no mercy. When they’re together, they never want to leave each other’s arms. But soon, their intense, physical bond will take an unexpected turn—evolving into something neither has bargained for: the promise of a lasting love.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Beautiful, naïve Lanie Talbot is so devoted to caring for her ailing mother and unemployed father that she puts herself up for auction, selling her virginity and two years of constant sexual availability to the highest bidder. Noah Calhoun, a driven but philanthropic business tycoon, turns to the underground sex trade in hopes of satisfying his physical needs while protecting his shattered heart. He and Lanie—who trade off narrating their intertwined tale—butt heads constantly, but their passion for each other is undeniable. Readers may be troubled by the depictions of the present-day sex industry, both positive (Lanie is breathlessly attracted to her “buyer” and he’s kind and generous to her) and negative (Lanie’s best friend assures her that she is “way too good for this sort of thing,” unlike the other women in the room), as well as the shame Lanie feels and sometimes projects onto others for having desires. Even so, smoldering sex scenes and a cliffhanger ending will leave erotica fans panting for more. Agent: Alexandra Machinest, Janklow & Nesbit Associates. (Sept.)

Kirkus Reviews
To save her mother's life, a beautiful virgin sells herself to a wealthy millionaire at an auction. When her mother is dying, Delaine Talbot swears she'll do anything to raise the money the family needs for care and surgery. The opportunity arises when she learns of an erotic club in Chicago that auctions women off to wealthy bidders. Delaine is pretty enough, but she's also a virgin--a highly desired commodity in that market. So she puts herself on the block to make the necessary cash to save her mother. How fortunate she is that on this particular night, the most eligible bachelor in Chicago is present and decides to take pity on her when she tosses a begging look toward his darkened bidding room; his winning bid keeps her out of the clutches of a veritable Jabba the Hutt. Noah is rich and gorgeous, and while he tells himself and her that he will treat her like a plaything, he never really does. He takes her to his palatial home, where she proceeds to veer back and forth between acting like a shrew by treating him like a villain and falling rapturously into bed with him. While Delaine's decision to sell herself is well-motivated, it's about the only thing that really is for the rest of the book. Apparently, Noah is supposed to be a wounded alpha hero masking a heart of gold, but he generally comes across as a wimpy, dark-hero wannabe who won't stand up to the harpy he paid a fortune for. Despite selling herself to a man who now essentially owns her, under contract, Delaine basically behaves like a spoiled 12-year-old in her first relationship, punishing him for having had the audacity to buy her. The plot is linear and simplistic, and the characters do unpleasant and annoying things for no particular reason. Even the sex, which should be erotic, becomes mind-numbing when there seems to be no real character development behind it. A tiresome, vexing shadow of the Fifty Shades phenomenon.

sacrifices we make


“You’re sure you want to do this?” my way oversexed best friend asked me for what seemed like the millionth time since I’d walked through the doors of the nightclub where she worked—and played—the slut.

Dez was my rock. She held me down when life got too serious, and it was over-the-top serious at the moment. Dez was short for Desdemona, which loosely translated meant “of the devil.” She’d changed her name the day she turned eighteen, only because her parents refused to let her do so before then. Seriously, her parents had named her Princess when she was born, but if anyone other than them tried to call her that, it was a bar brawl in the making. Dez was crazy beautiful, the sort of bosomy babe you read about in all the romance novels: long, silky black hair, hourglass figure, legs that go on for days, and the face of a goddess. The only problem was that she carried herself like a biker chick. She also liked to test-ride all the models. Like I said, slut. But I loved her like she was my own flesh and blood. And considering what I was willing to do for my flesh and blood, that was saying a lot.

“No, I’m not sure, Dez, but I have to. So stop asking me before you make me change my mind and I go running out of here like the scaredy cat we both know I really am,” I snapped at her.

She never took my drama too personally, because she gave just as good as she got. Boy, did she ever. And she had not an ounce of shame for it.

“And you’re really willing to give up your V-card to a total stranger? Sans romance? No wining, no dining, no sixty-nining?” Her incessant questioning grated on my last nerve, but I knew it was because she loved me and wanted to be sure I’d considered everything. We had gone over all the pros and cons with a fine-toothed comb, and I really didn’t think we had missed anything. But the unknown was what worried me the most.

“In exchange for my mother’s life? In a heartbeat,” I said as I followed her down the dark corridor that led to the underbelly of Foreplay, the club where she worked. Foreplay: that was where my life would change. It was the point of no return.

My mother, Faye, was terminally ill. She had always had a weak heart, and it had progressively gotten worse over the years. She had nearly died while giving birth to me, but had managed to bounce back from that and countless other operations and procedures. There was no bouncing back now. Her light was fading entirely too fast.

She was so weak and frail at this stage that she was bedridden, but not before having been in and out of hospitals so much that my father, Mack, had lost his job. He had refused to leave her alone in the name of helping some stupid factory meet its production numbers. I never blamed him for that. She was his wife, and he took his duty as her husband very seriously. She was his to care for, just like she would’ve cared for him if the roles had been reversed. But no job meant no health insurance. It also meant we were forced to live off the meager savings account my father had managed to tuck away for their golden years. Ergo, purchasing health insurance was a luxury my parents could not afford. Fantastic situation, huh?

Things had gotten even worse. Faye’s illness had progressed to the point that a heart transplant was essential in order for her to continue living. That bit of news had taken a toll on all of us, but none more than Mack.

I’d watched my father day in and day out. He had been losing weight, his primary concern for his wife overshadowing his own care. And the dark rings under his red eyes made it obvious that he hadn’t been getting as much sleep as he should have, either. Be that as it may, he had always put on a brave face for my mother. She had accepted her imminent demise, but my father . . . he still held out hope. The problem was that his hope was diminishing. It was killing his very soul to watch her die a little more each day. I think a piece of him went with every little piece of her.

I had walked in on him one night after my mother had fallen fast asleep. He was slumped over in his recliner, head in his hands, shoulders heaving from his disheartened sobs.

He hadn’t meant for anyone to see him that way. But I had.

Never had I seen him so despondent. There was this nagging feeling tugging at my heart constantly that told me when my mother died, my father wouldn’t be far behind. He would literally mourn himself to death. There was no doubt in my mind.

I had to do something. I was desperate to make everything better. To make them better.

Dez was my best friend. My very best friend. I had always shared everything with her, so she was wholly aware of the situation. Desperate times called for desperate measures, and after seeing just how desperate I had become, she had finally told me about the more scandalous business that was conducted beneath Foreplay.

Scott Christopher, the owner, was what one might call an aggressive entrepreneur. Basically, he was a pimp, but not any run-of-the-mill pimp on the streets. No, he’d figured out a way to tap the pockets of those whose pockets were overflowing. His was a high-class operation, an auction where women were sold to the highest bidder. Foreplay might have been the face of his business, but the auction was his bread and butter. It was a big frat party on top, college kids finding their next hookup and getting so wasted they couldn’t remember their names, which was the perfect cover for the refined establishment underneath. From what I understood, some of the women—myself included—were participating voluntarily, while others owed Scott in some way. Selling their bodies was their last-ditch effort to repay him, even though it meant losing their freedom in the process.

Dez told me that the clients were always men with fat bank accounts. Even the world’s richest tycoons had a thirst for the kinkiest of fantasies—fantasies they would never want to see go public. For the right amount of money, they could find willing flesh and never have to worry about their secret getting out. But it was luck of the draw—I could end up with someone gracious and kind, or a total tyrant who enjoyed dominating his property. If history was any indication, I’d end up with the latter. I hadn’t exactly had the best of luck in my life, so why should I believe the powers that be would grant me any favors now?

My mother’s illness had required constant sacrifice not only from my father but from me as well. It wasn’t like I was resentful, but instead of going to college, I had stayed home with her so that my father could work. Now that he didn’t have a job, they saw no reason for me to feel obligated to stick around. I’d never felt obligated. She was my mother, and I loved her. Besides, I still hadn’t made up my mind about what I wanted to do with my future anyway. You’d think a woman of twenty-four would have had her life together, but no, not really.

It might have been a pretty low move on my part, getting their hopes up and all, but like I said, hope was something that was lacking in my household, and it certainly couldn’t hurt to give them a little. So I managed to successfully convince my mother and father that I had scored a super-sweet, all-expenses-paid scholarship to NYU. Yes, I knew that wasn’t something that was likely to happen at this point in my life, but my parents didn’t know, and that made all the difference in the world. Being so far away from home meant I wouldn’t be able to visit as often, and as much as it pained me to be away from my dying mother for so long, it was absolutely necessary for my plan to work. If I was lucky, they’d never be the wiser. But you remember what I said about my luck, right?

The deal I had made with Scott was that I would agree to live with my “owner” for a period of two years. No more, no less. After that, I would be free to live my own life. Exactly what sort of life that would be at that point was yet to be determined, but I had to remain positive. Regardless, two years was a small price to pay to ensure any amount of time for my mother and, ultimately, my father as well.

The bass coming from the club music upstairs pulsed through the walls and took over my heartbeat, but I tried desperately not to wish I was up there drowning myself in booze and good times, like everyone else who had no clue about the secret outfit that existed right under their feet. The women down here were drowning in something completely different.

We stepped around the club doorman holding a VIP list on a clipboard. He knew who we were and why we were there, so he let us inside immediately. I almost lost my nerve as we made our way past the crowd of women that lined the hallway. They were an assorted bunch, some with a regal air about them and others who looked like this wasn’t their first time at bat, but perhaps it was the first time they’d made it to the big leagues. Each woman had a number taped to her bare stomach, and they were standing in front of a mirror that lined the opposite wall.

“Two-way mirror,” Dez explained. “Each client who comes in has a write-up on every girl on the auction block tonight. Then they’re herded in here like cattle and put on display for the high rollers. It gives them an opportunity to check out the goods so they can decide which desperate girl they might want to bid on.”

“Gee, thanks, Dez. That doesn’t make me feel bad at all.”

“Oh, hush. You know I don’t mean it like that,” she said, trying to make me feel better. “You’re way too good for this sort of thing, and you know it. You’re not them.” She motioned toward the other women in the hall. “But I get it. You’re doing it for Faye, and that has to be the most selfless thing I’ve ever heard of.”

Those other women could very well have had their own Faye at home, I thought as I averted my gaze so as not to make eye contact.

We reached the end of the hall, and Dez knocked on the door. A voice yelled for us to come in, but when Dez backed out of the way and motioned toward the entrance, I panicked. Full-on hyperventilation was only moments away, I just knew it.

“Hey, look at me.” Dez forced me to face her. “You don’t have to go in there. We can turn around right now and walk out of here.”

“No, we can’t,” I said, tremors racking my body no matter how hard I tried to steady my nerves.

“I can’t go in there with you. You’re on your own from here on out,” she said, unable to completely hide her regret and worry.

I nodded my understanding and ducked my head so she wouldn’t see the tears welling up in my eyes.

Dez abruptly hugged me to her chest and practically squeezed the air from my lungs. “You can do this. Hell, maybe you’ll actually get some good sex out of it. You never know. Don Juan might be on the other side of that mirror waiting to sweep you off your feet.”

“Ha! Not likely,” I scoffed, and managed to smile a little before backing out of her safe embrace. “I’ll be okay. You just make sure the jerk that ends up with me follows through on our deal. If he doesn’t, I expect you to send the FBI in here with guns a-blazin’.”

“Girl, you already know it. And you know the digits, so you better call me with status reports or I’m coming after you. I have to get back to the bar now, before I lose my job and the inside scoop on you. But remember that I sort of like you and shit.” Dez wasn’t one for the mush, but I knew that was code for I love you. She kissed my cheek and said, “Give ’em hell, babe,” before swatting me on the ass and turning to walk away. She wasn’t fooling me. I saw the way her shoulders curled in and she dabbed at her eyes with her fingertips when she thought I couldn’t see her.

“I sort of like you, too,” I said under my breath because she was already out of earshot.

I turned toward the door, psyching myself up before I lost my nerve and backed out. One thought of my mother, and I knew there was no turning back. So I opened the door and marched into that office to finalize the terms of my contract.

Scott’s office looked like something I might have expected for a Mafia kingpin. Plush carpet covered the floor, a beautiful chandelier hung from the center of the ceiling, lighted glass cases held various things I assumed cost a fortune, and fine art lined the walls. Classical music wafted from invisible speakers in an attempt to lure me into a false sense of security. The music and elegant décor lent the illusion of a refined establishment, which may have made the clientele feel more at home, but I knew better. You could put a suit and tie on a pig, but it didn’t change the fact that it was still a pig.

Scott was at his desk with a cigarette in one hand and a lowball of whiskey in the other. His feet were propped on the desk while he lounged back in his chair, his fingers directing an invisible orchestra like he hadn’t a care in the world.

He turned to look at me and grinned before sitting upright and butting his cigarette in a marble ashtray. “Ah, Ms. Talbot. I wondered if you’d grace us with an appearance tonight.”

Squaring my shoulders and setting my chin, I looked him in the eye. This was my deal, and I was in control until the money was exchanged. I wasn’t about to let Scott Christopher think he was anything other than the middleman he was. “I said I’d be here, and so I am.”

Meet the Author

C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort for all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.

Under_The_Covers_BookBlog More than 1 year ago
~Reviewed by ANGELA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog When I was offered to review this book, naturally, I had to look it up on Goodreads before accepting. From what I can see, readers either hated it or truly loved it. There were a few negative reviews … but instead of deterring me it actually intrigued me. So thanks to those reviews, I took on the task….Well, I loved it! I have to be honest though. The beginning of this story was a bit bothersome but as I read on, it became tolerable, to scorching hot, to “what-was-it-that-bothered me again?” See, Delaine’s mother is critically ill and not only that she is slowly deteriorating; this ordeal is taking a toll on her father as well. Being in desperation, she took the plunge and sold herself into a two year contract to be a sex slave. Usually sex slavery or selling one’s self is not my cuppa but what helped me overcome this was that it wasn’t drilled over and over. There was no whining about it. Delaine simply sucked it up (pun) and went about her task. But then again, with a man like Noah, you would just forget about everything. This book was written in both Noah and Delaine’s point of view , so you were able to see what they were thinking about and witness their feelings grow. Their romance was unconventional, but once they fell in love, I thought it was sweet and dreamy. Delaine’s thoughts had me laugh out loud so many times. She had outrageous terms for body parts and her thoughts sometimes were silly but funny none the less. She reminded me of some PNR heroines who are snarky, has hilarious comebacks and banters. I’m actually glad she had this personality. She wasn’t somber or depressing to read about instead I found her thoughts refreshing. Noah on the other hand was more on the serious and on the horny side of things. This guy was insatiable. His purpose for purchasing Delaine was pure mechanical. He was to have his way, in any way, without any emotional attachments. Well, can that really happen in a two year contract? Especially if they are both attracted to each other? Nah, he should’ve known better. But then because he was hurt bad before, I guess I can understand his reasons. Don’t get me wrong, Noah wasn’t all about business, he had a funny side too. He can be sweet if he wanted to and most definitely sexy. And talk of which, this book had plenty of steamy scenes that had me fanning for air. Yeah, Ms. Parker can write them pretty well. She may have written the best BJ lesson scene for 2013. This is my first I’ve read from Ms. Parker and from what I can see, she has a good grip on what an entertaining read is. I was definitely captivated with her characters and scenes that had me reading from one page to the next. I know plenty of people were turned off with Delaine’s decision to trap herself in this contract. As a daughter, I can tell you that I wouldn’t mind making that sacrifice. And as a mother, I would rather die than to let my daughter do such a thing. But I took this novel for the fiction that it is and enjoyed my read. I do have to mention that I was a bit surprised that this was a fan fic based novel. I was even more shocked that Ms. Parker admits it and gives recognition to the person that inspired her. She didn’t try to hide it like a few I’ve known and for that…..I give her credit. *ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson: *eARC received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Since the blurb markets the book for fans of Fifty Shades of Gray and Bared to You, I feel like I need to start my review with a confession.. . I absolutely hated Fifty Shades, and I didn't finish Bared to You because I just couldn't get into it. Being a fan of horror, urban fantasy,  paranormal romance, paranormal erotica, & some romantic suspense, I simply figured that straight erotic romance just wasn't my  thing. With that all said, I'm not sure how useful my input will be, but I'll tell you what I thought and let you go from there... Some of you may know from reading other reviews and things that this started out several years ago as Twilight FanFic. What I want to  say first off is to forget that you ever heard that. This is simply a steamy erotic romance that happens to be on the same highway as Fifty  Shades and the others who have followed in its wake, but it's its own beautiful creature and should be viewed and judged as such. The concept is a familiar one - twenty-something virgin hooks up with hot billionaire business tycoon for hot sex. What it has in addition,  however, is a moving baseline story for our heroine which makes her decision to enter into the contract entirely selfless and heartfelt,  and a catalyst for our hero that makes you want nothing more than for him to find his zen and mend is previously shattered heart. What  really set the book apart were the characters and their growth, both individually and toward one another - Noah starts out as a class A  Alpha-hole (albeit a super sexy one), and independent, determined Lanie goes a little bit crazy mid book, but despite it all, their  chemistry is page melting, and their dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny at times. Having read & loved C.L's Paranormal series (THE SUPERNOVA SAGA), hosted her several times on the website, and talked with her  for years online, I know her personality, and it shines through like a beacon in this book - in the best of ways! Her wit, snark, and  absolute abandon, compiled with her evident lust for life (and lust in general. Hee hee) make for some fabulous reading material, and  a lightness in a book that could easily get much too heavy with the amount of sex and drama. And the nicknames... Yeah, gotta love it! :)  Life's too short to be so damn serious, right!? Now here's where I'm probably not much help... The eroticism was smokin' and there was PLENTY of it, but because I don't read these  kind of books regularly, I'm not sure if it was enough, just right, or over the top. I felt it fit (from what I know of what fans of the genre  generally look for) and even though I personally skimmed some parts (yeah, I get a little shy...), it was wicked sexy and fun at the same  time. This is book #1 of a Duet, so it does end on a pretty big cliff hanger, but the next book will be out before we know it. :) In short, would I recommend A Million Dirty Secrets to erotic romance lovers who started out as fans of Fifty Shades, Bared to You,  Wallbanger, etc? Absolutely!

This story took a minute to draw me in, but once it did, I ended up reading it in one sitting because it wouldn't let me go! I really enjoyed how the characters are with each other and feel they make a really good match. They are both so mouthy, both so stubborn and both so inexplicably drawn to each other that I found myself grinning like the Cheshire Cat through 90% of the book. The only downside... it does leave off on a bit of a cliffhanger. Which of course made me run straight to NetGalley to see if the second book was there yet. Sadly it's not so I am going to have to wait. But make no mistake, I will be reading book 2 and seriously hope C.L. makes it as amazing as this on was! I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.

This book, OMG! This book was everything. I stayed up all night because I couldnt stop reading. I love Noah & Lanie, and Polly I wanted to smack her but loved her just as much. Every since reading 50 shades, I have been looking for another series to capture my heart and I have read a lot of books since then and this is up there with 50 & Crossfire. Most reviews give away the story, when I read a review I just want to know if its worth my time. This was mos def worth my time. Thank you for a wonderful story. I hate that I have to wait until Feb. 14. for the next book, that sucks.

Holy Moses! I didn't think I could read anything hotter! This had me giggling, blushing, laughing out loud, and frustrated at both characters. The banter between these two is hilarious and comical all you can do is laugh. From the first page this book leaves you wanting more. Delaine Talbot needs money and fast! Her mother needs a life saving transplant, but Delaine and her parents are flat broke. I mean over extended broke! So she decides to do the most selfless act....sell her V-Card! I mean who wouldn't want to buy an Un-touched beauty!? Bring in Noah Crawford...Billionaire, playboy, broken when it comes to relationships. He figures he can teach her to please him exactly the way he likes and have no strings attached. He's tried a relationship before...didn't work out so well for him. What he doesn't expect is Delaine's smart-assed attitude and her unwillingness to back down. This creates heat unlike any other. They fight...they make up...they love. But then complications arise and Noah finds out the real reason behind her auction and strings start to become attached...The cliffhanger C.L. Parker leaves us with makes me want more so bad! I mean on the edge of my seat can't take no more bad!
