She is a heady combination of innocence and sultry seduction, and Japanese-American businessman David Imakita will risk everything he has to keep her: his career, his friends, even his integrity—such is her power over him.

Now THIS is a romance novel. The sex scenes were not only hot and steamy, but frequent as well, which is what I prefer in my romance. But what I didn't expect, and was pleasantly surprised by, was the plot being actually pretty good, too! I quickly got into the book for the sex scenes, but before I knew it, I was totally hooked on the plot and flipping ahead to see what happened next. Well done, Emma Holly! I would absolutely read another of her books.
A Voracious Reader (a.k.a. Carol)
Emma Holly is the reason I signed up at because you just can't get erotica at the library. I have loved every book I've read by her...except this one. For me, it was just a dud. The story was blah and I just couldn't click with the two-dimensional characters. It was an apathetic read. Oh well, one out of over a dozen aren't bad odds. On to the next one!
This was the first Emma Holly I read, first erotic theme too.

I love David! and Chloe of course...
David for me is Rick Yune or maybe Sung Kang and Chloe has that Angelina Jolie or Megan Fox feel. =)

A sad story of childhood trauma affecting the adult along with the conflict of cultures: man's view of woman, Japanese culture versus American, and, the need for the child to please a parent.

The sexual theme is one of a subtle submission dominating throughout winding around manipulation, the culture of the geisha, forbidden theatrics, gay love, and the emotional art of stripping with voyeurism rampant throughout.
Another great book by Emma Holly. This one was very sexy and also had a very intense story. It really drew me in and I didn't want to put it down. She didn't do what I expected with the story, but I was still happy with how it ended.

I do like Ms. Holly's erotic books. Chloe is a whirlwind of trouble. I enjoyed how she lead David essential by his dick. This was a smexy book before I started reading so much erotica.
Found this disappointing for an Emma Holly.

I'm a USA Today bestselling author who LOVES the hot stuff, both to read and to write. My favorite obsessions are all things coffee, almost everything on HGTV, and dreaming up new stories.
