R&B queen Erica Jones is playing with fire—and she’s loving every minute of it . . .
Sexy and scorching, she’s the ultimate diva, worshipped by fans, desired by both men and women alike. But Erica Jones’s all-consuming sexual appetites drive her to take risks that threaten to destroy far more than her career. It’s up to Michelle Brown, Erica’s devoted personal assistant, to shield her boss from scandal at all cost . . . that is, until someone starts murdering Erica’s lovers—from a boyishly sexy pop star to a genius rap producer—and Erica’s life begins to spiral out of control.
Suddenly there’s a new woman in Erica’s entourage. Jill Chandler is a gorgeous ex-cop-turned-bodyguard with her own sensual secrets. As danger and scandal ignite, someone with a chilling agenda begins a treacherous and erotic game of cat and mouse that will leave no one unscathed. From Manhattan’s downtown sex scene to dangerous midnight trysts to a final showdown that will expose a woman’s deepest secrets, the quest to unmask a killer grows deadlier by the day—until it ends in the most shocking revelation of all. . . .
