Verity Ant explores sado-masochism in an organic way, taking it to new levels of both intimacy and pain. The goal is to bring to life a fantasy of control, will, redemption and acceptance in idealized characters. The romantic element of Verity's stories is very solid, but is only part of a tripartide array of storytelling pieces: deep and edgy SM; stirring romance; and action-oriented plot. As part of the D.V. Ant writing team, she has co-authored two other books: platinum bestseller Breaking Toys, and Pucker.
Kevin, Renee, and Amiko love each other. Like the triangle—the strongest geometric configuration—their love is both simple and complex, made more complex, perhaps, by the BDSM nature of their sexuality. Kevin is the apex of their union, a sexual sadist and dominant personality. His women, both intelligent and attractive, are submissive, but only to him. He would never harm them, but Kevin, driven by the narrow focus of his sexuality, finds pleasure in inflicting sexual pain in a controlled manner, rewarding good behavior with pleasure.
When Amiko is stolen from their triad, kidnapped by a crazy woman who fancies herself in love with the Asian beauty, both Kevin and Renee are beside themselves with concern for her welfare. They need to find Amiko before something ugly happens to her. From captivity, Amiko tries to help them, but her trail of “breadcrumbs” might just get her into more trouble than she is already in.
Kevin’s forceful nature demands that he take charge of the search and rescue operation. Renee’s love for her sister-in-spirit compels her to accept danger. Amiko must be saved. Any other outcome, the ruin of their carefully nurtured triad, simply cannot be borne. BDSM, Menage (M/f/f)
