Devil’s Den # 3
By: Violetta Rand
Releasing May 12, 2015
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.
I’m standing at the bar on Wednesday night, having a drink with one of our regular customers, when Macey arrives. She’s wearing a dress that reminds me of something I’d see in Paris or in a classic film; it’s red and clings to her curves. I can’t help staring. She has to walk by me to check in with the DJ. We haven’t talked since Monday night.
As soon as she’s nearby, I smile.
“Good evening, Ms. Taylor.”
Without glancing my way, she flips me off and keeps moving.
“What’d you do to Macey?” Glenda calls from behind the bar.
I turn halfway, resting my elbow on the counter. “Couldn’t say.”
“Really?” She throws me the you’re full of shit look. “I’ve known that girl for over fifteen years, before she ever popped her pretty head in this place.”
I can’t imagine Macey as a little girl.
“And you want to know something?” Glenda leans over the bar, her large breasts
brushing against my arm. “I’ve never seen her act that way before, never.”
“I’m obligated to agree,” Gilbert adds, before sucking down the last of his rum and Coke. “Macey always has a smile . . .”
“Yeah,” I say, holding up my hand to silence Macey’s fan club. “I get it. You’re the
resident historian.” I smile at Glenda. “And you . . .” I slap Gilbert’s shoulder. “I haven’t quite decided what you are yet.”
“Just sayin’.” Glenda laughs.
The woman can see right through me. I am curious about her connection with Macey, though. She’s only twenty-four, and well, Glenda is older than dirt. I smile. “How’d you meet?”
She clicks her tongue. “See, Gilbert,” she comments. “The boy’s curiosity goes beyond the workplace.”
“Maybe,” I admit.
