Back Cover Blurb:

Sin proves that passion goes beyond smoldering desire when hearts dance to their own special beat.

Every woman at the Devil’s Den strip club has a story to tell, and Macey Taylor is no exception. Smart and self-reliant, she’s got a chip on her shoulder, a broken heart, and no patience for a sexy new manager with an Ivy League pedigree and a strict set of rules. Macey prefers to break rules, something she lets Joshua Camden know from the start—even as he ignites a fire in her that goes beyond the hottest club in town.

Joshua is working the Devil’s Den for all it’s worth, learning everything he can about the adult-entertainment game before investing in a place of his own. Macey is a surprise: a woman as strong-willed as she is gorgeous. Joshua wants to get inside her world, to see through her eyes. But he soon discovers that seduction is a two-way street—and expecting redemption without risking his heart may be the greatest sin of all.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

My Review:

Rand brings the Devil’s Den to life in such a vivid manner that I really feel as if I’ve been there. She brings the world of dancers to life, showing that there’s so much more to it. Rand takes us deep into the lives of her characters, allowing us to experience every aspect of their lives. Pain and loss combine with romance and hope in a fantastic manner that kept me hooked.

Finding out more about Macey’s history makes her so much more of a palatable & understandable character. The contrast between her and Joshua proves that opposites definitely do attract. Rand’s writing has a natural flow that mirrors the characters’ thoughts. The raw, gritty lives of the characters are really brought out through it. The tension, understanding, and need in this relationship is off the charts. It’s contagious. The supporting cast really fills out this story well. I may have an epic dislike for the exes in this one, but Bishop is off the charts. His creepy vibe put him on my ‘watch’ list from the get-go.

This was a fantastic addition to Rand’s Devil’s Den series. I loved getting this closer look at Marcy’s life. Seeing her come out of her pain and suffering, accepting herself was just the tip of the iceberg in this fantastic tale.
