Mercy Mass Market Paperback – 8 July 2014
The first sexy installment in Shelly Bell's four-part serialized erotic thriller about a young law student who must go undercover at a sex club to prove her client is not guilty of murder.
Driven by ambition ...
Third-year law student Kate Martin outran her tragic past to become an intern for her idol and secret crush, the powerful attorney Nicholas Trenton. She is thrilled when Nick assigns her to represent his best friend and client, millionaire Jaxon Deveroux ... the prime suspect in his submissive wife Alyssa's murder.
Seduced by desire ...
Kate knows they have only a few days to find the real killer, and since signs point to a member of the BDSM community, she volunteers to go undercover as Jaxon's submissive at Benediction--the private sex club where he is a member--to covertly investigate Alyssa's last few months. For years, Kate has kept her dark fantasies a secret ... but a chance to explore them with sexy, dominant Jaxon is just too tempting to pass up.

“Mr. Deveroux and I have been friends for many years, and he requested me personally. Jaxon's a very private man, but those who are in his circle are aware of certain... proclivities that may come up in the police's line of questioning.”
After only one book into this series (for which there will be four), this already promises to be a wicked, suspenseful, mysterious, sexy as all hell and emotional ride. This grabs your attention right from page one and doesn't let go, not even after the last page. All I can think about, even as I write this, is getting my hands on the next installment-luckily for everyone, the wait is so short the wall climbing will be kept at a minimum.
“I admit I haven't been to a sex club. I may have read some romantic fiction about sexy billionaire men with emotional issues who call themselves Doms, but I've also done quite a bit of research online about BDSM.”
“I don't care if you've written an entire dissertation on BDSM. I'm not jeopardizing your safety.”
“Even for your best friend?”
Kate Martin is a third-year law student interning at the law firm of her dreams. For years she has been harboring a secret crush on her now boss- Nicholas Trenton and not even the events of her tragic past that she is hiding from everyone was going to be enough to keep her from getting where she is today. When Nick's best friend, Jaxon Deveroux, becomes the main suspect for the murder of his wife, Kate's internship takes an unexpected turn. Time is not on their side and when it becomes clear that the murderer is a member of the BDSM lifestyle, Kate volunteers to go undercover as Jax's submissive. She will have to be convincing to all those around her when they enter the private BDSM club Benediction to see what information they can uncover and hopefully clear Jax. But what Kate was not prepared for was her long buried desires flaring to life under the dominate hands of the sexy-as-sin and dangerous Jaxson Deveroux.
“If you can't accept my terms, we'll find another way to prove my innocence.”
“But I'm not submissive.”
“Don't lie to me or yourself. Any Dom worth a damn would see your submissiveness from miles away. Believe me, I was drawn to you from the moment you slid into the interrogation room, so desperate to please your boss, you wouldn't even ask for a chair.”
Her body shuddered at the idea that this man desired her.
There is already so much mystery surrounding the characters; what the hell is Kate hiding? Did Jaxon do it? Who is behind that phone call?
There is a hint of danger lying just below the surface that is impossible to ignore along with the constant 'who dunnit?' feeling. And lets not forget the sexual tension...yeah, that's a hard one to miss-the air is ripe with it and the explosion does not disappoint. I can already see an obsession brewing for this author, Shelly Bell will without a doubt become my next 'One-Click Addiction' and I am more than ok with that. I am normally not a huge fan of cliffhangers, but with only a week between publications I can deal-it's the ones that make me wait months at a time that tend to dive me insane. This series promises to keep my anticipation at an all time til the very end and I am dying to see where it takes us next.
He may have been the Dominant, but there was no mistaking the hoarseness in his voice or the need in his eyes. She'd done this to him. She may have been the one literally on her knees, but, metaphorically, it was as if he was the one on his knees before her. Here in her bedroom, she alone had the ability to gift him with bliss.
She'd never felt so strong.

Kate Martin is an ambitious, third year law student with a scary past she's hiding from. As an intern at a prestigious law firm, she's working for the man who's served as her inspiration while in law school. She keeps a tight rein on everything in her life - she wants control. When Nicholas Trenton requests she join him in litigating a high profile case, she would never have imagined what she was about to become a part of.
Nick is a brilliant civil attorney who is now representing his best friend, Jaxon Deveroux, in a criminal case - the murder of his wife, Alyssa. The case seems cut and dry, but when Jaxon's sexual proclivities are made known, the case become very complicated. And Kate is asked to step way out of her comfort zone in order to gather evidence.
Between the haunting memory flashbacks, the present danger Kate is putting herself in, and the sparks flying between Kate, Nick, and Jaxon, Marcy was a gripping read. Ms. Bell gave the right amount of information on everyone to keep me wondering what was going on. And I can't wait to find out!
