When reporter Abbie Marshall needs to escape Honduras, a private jet carrying a Hollywood A-lister is her only way out. She has a ride home with Irish actor Jack Winter – notorious womanizer and all round bad boy. Abbie is shaken to the core by Winter’s blazing beauty and provocative mind.
After the plane’s nose-dive into the remote rainforest forces them to fight for survival, Abbie catches tantalizing glimpses of the complicated man behind the image. And the more she sees of him, the more he touches some primal part of her that she is determined to suppress. But after a devastating encounter with Winter’s shadow side, Abbie’s detachment is shattered.
On returning to normal life, Abbie cannot forget what happened, nor ignore the shocking rumours about the star’s private life. Her struggle to make sense of her torment leads straight back to Winter, who is just as obsessed by her. But if they are to have a relationship, Abbie knows she must embrace his hidden desires … and accept her own.
No longer caring about anything but their intoxicating love affair, Abbie is drawn deeper into the dark heart of Winter – and the secret that threatens to destroy everything …
Praise for The Pleasures of Winter:

“The Pleasures of Winter is perfect for fans of erotic romance that is heavy on the romance but still contains a little kink. If you’re looking for something hot and steamy with intense chemistry then you can’t go wrong with this one.” — Feeling Fictional
“I didn’t want it to end … The two authors have created a flawless, exciting and down right steamy read that will stay with you long after your finish.” — Totally Bookalicious
“There are some very steamy BDSM scenes also some very interesting internet play … The Pleasures of Winter is explosive, action packed, and a very interesting original story.” — Tome Tender
“With The Pleasures of Winter, you do get some of the same elements from Fifty Shades: the intense physical attraction between characters, the contract of a BDSM relationship, and loads of sex. However, that is where the similarities end. Where Fifty Shades lacked in quality, Pleasures prevailed. This book was written in a smart and sassy tone that reminded me a bit of the chick-lit genre – which I love!” — A Bookish Way of Life
“There is an awful lot of erotica on the shelves these days and they all seem to look the same, but I have to say I enjoyed The Pleasures of Winter immensely. [It is] well-written and compelling.” — Novelicious
“Is this book a long awaited reprieve for those that love Fifty Shades of Grey? I’m going to say, YES. And this is the first time I’m going to say it. This book has all the flavors of fifty, yet this book stands on its own. It’s not a recreation with different characters in slightly different roles. This book is just different.” (5/5 fluttering hearts) — My Book Boyfriend
“All I can say is, holy yowza, batman! Yes, this book falls firmly into the ‘What to read after Fifty Shades of Grey’ category, but in my opinion…and pay attention to me here, people…This book blows Fifty Shades out of the water. That’s right, I said it … I unabashedly adored this book.” — This Bookish Endeavor
