About the Book:She’s the woman he sent away.
Lisette wouldn’t be back in New Orleans if she didn’t need protection—and who better to turn to than her ex-boyfriend turned Detective? She’s got a closet full of secrets that include a stalker ex and a kinky past. She vows to not dream about Mathieu…much. If only he were a Dominant, one who would not just flog her into bliss, but love her as well. A girl can dream, can’t she?
He was her first love.
Mathieu wants nothing to do with another damsel in distress, but he can’t say no when the little blonde woman walks back into his life with proof her ex is big trouble. He’ll give her a place to sleep, but nothing more. His heart is locked up tight. Except, Lisette uncovers his past in the BDSM world and she’s never backed down from a challenge. He can handle her, can’t he? Lisette and Mathieu embark on a relationship that is strictly about sexual gratification, but evolves into more. When the bodies align, the hearts entwine. Except their rekindled flame is in danger. Lisette’s ex has found his prey, and he’s not afraid of taking a life.
Includes a bonus short story, Picture Her Completed.
Any other cop asking him about attending a dungeon would be ludicrous,
but Mathieu had introduced Odalia to the public kink scene and she’d flourished
into a dynamic young woman. He’d hated leaving patrol because it meant giving
her up as a partner.
“Yeah, probably not tonight. Maybe another time.”
“Don’t say that, man. You’ve been divorced over a year. You haven’t been
around the scene for over two. People miss you.”
Odalia pulled the cruiser into a spot at the station and he got out. It
was the only way to end the conversation. She killed the engine and hurried
“That’s how you’re going to handle this?” Odalia asked as they stepped
aside for two people leaving the building.
“Don’t know what you’re talking about, rookie.” He opened the glass door
and held it.
Odalia stared at him hard for a moment, her gaze narrowed. He didn’t
doubt she had an earful to give him, but the presence of so many prying ears
silenced her. Odalia had her own demons to keep at bay here.
At New Year’s, a fellow cop had stolen compromising photographs of
Odalia her new beau had taken of her all kinked up. While the pictures and the
electronic source had been destroyed, it hadn’t silenced the thief, and she’d
had to hold her head up high and ignore the snide comments and assumptions made
“Be safe out there,” Mathieu said as he split off from Odalia and headed
to his desk.
He moved through the building all the way to his department. The phone
on his desk blinked orange. A good omen, if it was what he hoped.
Mathieu jabbed in his voicemail and listened to the voice on the other
“Hello Detective Mouton, I got your message about the assault case. I’m
faxing the statement over. Not sure if it’s what you’re looking for.”
Mathieu saved the message and headed over to the fax machine. There it
was. The victim’s statement along with the two college students. It wasn’t a
lot—potentially, it wasn’t even related—but he wasn’t going to take a chance.

Lisette groped under the bed for her precious backpack. In her flurry of
cleaning after lunch, she’d pushed it under the bed to vacuum. Not that Mathieu
owned a vacuum, but his neighbor was nice enough to let her borrow one, so long
as she cleaned the bag out before she returned it.
Cleaning and baking were her two go-tos if a good flogging wasn’t on the
table for working out her frustrations. Before Seth, getting that flogging
hadn’t been a problem, but it had been so long, almost a year, since she’d
played with anyone. One of the liberating things about leaving Seth was the
immediate opportunity to play platonically with others. Her little subbie heart
wanted that so bad.
Where was the damn bag?
Lisette reached farther under the four-poster and grasped…something. It
felt like nylon stretched over…something. She pulled the object out and laid it
at her knees.
It looked like…
It couldn’t be.
There was just no way.
