Every passion has its price . . .
Journalist Sophie Ryder has been following Emery Lockwood’s story since she was a little girl. There has always been something in his haunted eyes that she couldn’t resist and now, when she’s certain he holds the key to solving a string of kidnappings, she’ll do anything to speak to him. Even if it means venturing deep into the seductive world of the Gilded Cuff, a luxurious BDSM club on Long Island’s Gold Coast and Emery’s personal playground.
From the moment Sophie enters his shadowy, sensual domain, Emery Lockwood knows this tantalizing new little sub was meant to belong to him. However, Sophie wants more from Emery than just pleasure . . . she wants his past. And that is something he isn’t willing to give-no matter who is asking. But every moment he spends with Sophie, Emery feels his control slipping and he knows it’s only a matter of time before he surrenders to her heart, body, and soul
“The Gilded Cuff was a dramatic, sexy, and suspenseful romance between two people drowning in survivor’s guilt. Lauren Smith crafted an intriguing plot with strong secondary characters. Ms. Smith also created strong women who were brave and courageous; they were unwilling to sit on the sidelines while the men confronted the danger. Fans of Lisa Renee Jones would enjoy the sexy mystery with BDSM relationships.” — Harlequin Junkie

Enthralling, suspenseful, very sexual, with some light BDSM and a very challenging story! Well written, unique in its content, with steamy sexual encounters and engaging characters. The plot is unique in it’s content, the kidnapping of twins, and the events that help shape their lives, each believing the other is dead. The “Gilded Cuff” is more than an Erotica Romance, it’s the story of child abduction, it’s after effects and finding their HEA. More than romance, sex, and dominance, it’s about finding peace, healing, and forgiveness. Readers of Erotica Romance and Romance in general, are sure to enjoy this one, as well as readers of Mystery and Suspense.
I can’t wait for the next installment, to learn more about Finn’s story. Strongly recommend!
