Author: Catherine Gardiene

Cat Gardiene spends her days behind a desk and her nights in front of a laptop, but struggles to understand why she doesn't have a better tan or a firmer ass. A lover of theatre, books, music, and alpha males, not necessarily in that order, she is a proud resident of New York City, where all four are available within a ten-block radius of any corner she finds herself…well, perhaps not the alpha males. But she can always score an excellent cappuccino.

Her writing career began in elementary school, when she and her friends would write fan-fiction for a series she refuses to disclose, but says rhymes with Blarsky and Dutch. Since then, her male characters have become more handsome and her dialogue more suggestive, but her obsession with cops and Hollywood continues. As she did then, she credits her friends with giving her the courage and the stamina to write, and her readers with providing the greatest gift of all – feedback.

Vicki Simpson's life is crumbling around her, so why not escape to Aruba for a little soul searching? Armed with a personal "Mission Statement" to fill up her life with great sex, she hopes to turn her life in a new direction. She never expected to fall for a man like Michael, a man who pushes her buttons as much as he pushes her limits.

Michael Collins has everything under control, especially the women he chooses to dominate at Club Marquis. But relationships start and end at the club door, which is precisely how he wants it...until he meets Vicki. Drawn by Vicki's vulnerability, he can't stay away. Her body responds passionately, but she keeps her heart and mind closed to him. If she can't embrace the submissive he senses inside her, though, his need to control her will eventually drive them apart.
