Calypso’s agenda continues when a lovely widow contacts her…

Michelle Cross, or Shelli as her friends call her, is stuck in a rut. With all her kids off at college, this widowed mother splits her time between her charities, and lusting after men – well two men specifically: her late husband’s best friend, James, and her much younger gardener, Doyle. Desperate to resist temptation, she turns to an online dating, but fails horribly. It’s not until James suggests Club Ecstasy, that she decides to try one more time to exorcise the sexy pair from her every fantasy. Besides what could be better than Christmas in West Caicos?

After making his fortune in the dot-com era, reclusive boy-genuis, Doyle Garcia took up gardening and found his new calling. He loves to get his hands dirty, and the icing on his Tia Roselina’s cake? It also allows him to tempt the luscious Widow Cross into his bed. Unfortunately, he’s not the only one with eyes for her. While he’d been known to share fishing holes with James Redding, could he also share the luscious widow with his friend? Only time will tell when James approaches him with a plan to seduce Shelli – all it will take is a couple first class trips to Club Ecstasy, and keeping his hands off James. The first will be easy? But the second, not so much – because if he finds Shelli attractive, James is temptation incarnate. Too bad he doesn’t realize he’s about to get a little help from a goddess who swears that there are no lines when it comes to no holds barred sex and love.

Can their love survive healing him?

Despite being in a long-term relationship with his Master and lover, Diachi Rai, CEO Bryan Sterling is feeling restless, and it all has to do with his Master’s former submissive. Ever since Harkalone “Hark” Akula entered their home, Bryan’s life has been turned upside down. He’s acting out, standing up to his master – even courting punishment. All because of his need to help Hark.

Diachi is a man of many secrets, and Hark happens to be one of his darkest. As his first submissive, Hark was partially responsible for molding him into the powerful but discerning Dom he’s become. But when he was unable to give Hark what he needed, Diachi let Hark go, rather than share him. Now Hark is back, scarred and darker than Diachi could ever remember him being, and in dire need of a healing touch.

Hark is at the end of his tether. After losing his family: his Dom, their submissive and child along with his home, all he wants is to be left alone, not dropped in his former master’s lap like a child. But now that he’s there, he’s not only tempted by Diachi and Bryan, he’s also being drawn into their world. The question now, is will he be able to stay?

Growing up in a foster home in a small Midwest town, Sean Whitcomb planned from the day he turned sixteen to somehow escape. And he does to the big city of Des Moines at a lawyer’s firm. Now up for a shot at a partnership, he needs to deliver the goods, and it’s not what he thinks. No, it’s a family style meal for the founding partners and their spouses. Which causes Sean a major issue, because not only is he a single gay man, but he can’t cook to save his life, and his boss is expecting a home cooked meal — complete with a family or there will be no partnership offer.

In desperation, Sean turns to the man he left behind in his pursuit of the golden ring, Isaiah Waterston. Not only is Isaiah hot enough to still turn Sean’s crank but he’s also a world class chef at one of the hottest eateries in town. Now all he has to do is convince the man he’d left behind to give him a single night of his time, prepare a mouth-watering meal, and pretend to be his lover for a few hours. Sounds easy right? Well it is until Isaiah attaches his own stipulation –an entire weekend with Sean at his mercy.
