In her grimy, coal stained world, Olive Thompson knows one thing for certain - Mr. Edwards is the one she wants. When she’s with him, every part of her feels alive. And when he looks at her, a forbidden world glows in his gaze. She wants what he threatens, what he promises…no matter the price.
A PASSIONATE MAN DESPERATE TO SAVE AN ANGEL FROM HIS DARK DESIRES.
Intuitively a man knows when a woman can unravel him, regardless of what he tells himself. Jamie Edwards, master of the sensual and elite art of shibari rope, has always kept Olive Thompson at a distance. For two years, he’s endured constant vigilance, denial, and endless hunger … until today. Today he will steal a taste, something to remember after he walks away forever. Because who he is and what he wants are not for someone so pure. She thinks she wants him… she has no idea.
AFTER THE DARKEST NIGHT, THE SUN ALWAYS RISES - WHETHER YOU’RE READY FOR THE LIGHT OR NOT.
"The second book in Holland's Velvet Basement series features two strong characters whose unconventional and passionate courtship will keep readers turning pages. Her incorporation of Shibari provides a unique, refreshing look at Victorian England and its interpretation of foreign cultures. This is no typical romance--readers should expect scenes involving BDSM--and Holland continues to surprise and delight."~ RTBookReviews 4 STARS SCORCHER
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: For me Olive and Jamie’s story, encourages us to have the courage to be and express our passions in life, no matter how unlikely. I wanted to show the beauty of rope and its cultural connection to the sacred through Japanese culture. It expressed to me, a symbol of how we bind those we love to us, how we may be bound by invisible ropes, and that sometimes the most simple and innocent of touches can be the most devastating. I hope you enjoy it. Elsa
