About the Author

Handed a historical romance at the age of twelve, Ayla Ruse fell in love with love and with happy endings. Having grown up living life tasting a little of this and a little of that has not changed this attitude, but it's expanded her views. Love isn't always happy and it isn't always the way a person ?thinks it should be.? Sometimes it's outside the box, and it's always a challenge.

The challenge of finding and holding onto this love is what drives Ayla in her fiction. She likes stories that strip love ? among other things - down to the skin and tests the attachment and beliefs of the participants. Sometimes that test can come in the form of multiple partners, overcoming a desperate fear or even being sexually inventive.

Read an Excerpt

Mike sank onto the couch with an audible sigh.

"Nothing catching your eye tonight, either?" Trent asked.

Mike turned his head and studied his best friend and business partner. He didn't answer. He didn't have to. They both suffered from the same problem. Wanting a woman they couldn't have.

The music pumped loud through their favourite club, the lights dim except for the stations. Mike crossed his arms over his chest and watched one sub being spanked, another being flogged and still another kneeling before her Dom.

"This sucks," Trent commented without heat. "I've never had it this bad for a woman. I look around and all I see is Melissa."

Mike nodded his head in agreement. "I don't know whether to thank you or punch you for talking me into having her rent the middle loft."

"I didn't have to talk you into shit, Mike. She had nowhere to go. You would have offered her the loft by the end of that night if I hadn't mentioned it first."

Mike grunted at the truth in Trent's words. That impulsive decision to give temporary aid to a woman in need had led to their four-storey building being infused with the sights, sounds and scents of a woman they couldn't touch. Amend that—wouldn't touch. In the months she'd been living with them, she'd shown herself to be trustworthy, fun, spontaneous, dependable and of course, sexy as hell. Even when she raided the industrial-size refrigerator in the middle of the night sporting that ratty-ass robe of hers that covered every inch of skin, all he wanted to do was strip it off and feast on her delectable body.

Mike set his hands on his thighs. He liked control. Savoured it. Commanded it. But the constant thoughts of the woman out of their reach made him antsy, which irritated him to no end.

Trent interrupted Mike's thoughts. "She seemed happy to see us go tonight. Makes me wonder what she's up to?"
