Sex, bondage, and murder--some pleasures are deadlier than others.
Detective Wes Ellis' life consisted of mixing kink and pleasure, even where his job was concerned. That is, until the death of a young Jane Doe rocked the core of the BDSM community. Her untimely demise becomes Wes' new case. Was it a kink scene gone horribly wrong, or was there a serial killer on the streets of his city? The answer is intertwined in the delicate balance of Wes' life, and everything could come crashing to the ground in an instant.
Wes: A string of serial homicides leads me down the garden path. I dread the thought that if I don't solve these homicides, my past is going to come back to haunt me. After what it took to lock that chapter of my life away, I'd rather leave it closed, locked away, and buried in the recesses of my mind. But my sanity is at stake now, and if I don't solve these murders, I don't know who I am going to become. Now everything I've worked so hard to keep hidden is going to bubble to the surface if I don't put an end to these killings.
"HOT new debut author Piper St. James mixes pleasure and pain in her debut novel when Wes Ellis is forced to face his own demons within the confines of his career as a detective. The first installment of The B&D Chronicles will HAUNT and THRILL you "
Piper St. James always knew she was different, she just never knew how. It wasn't until she found the BDSM subculture at a young age when things began to fall into place. An occasional sexual bedroom activity for some, she soon learned there was much more than physical pleasure to this lifestyle. In a community that is perceived as fantasies and taboos, St. James has embraced the sensuality, sexuality, and self-discovery offered in this subculture into her daily life, and it has helped her become the strong, independent woman she is today. Bringing the knowledge of this world into her books St. James shares her own experiences in the community, not just to entertain her readers, but to enlighten them about a world they would be surprised to realize how little they actually knew about.
