Overpowered by his masculine strength and unmasked desire, Madalyn must become Otar's wife or face the marriage auction block. Now, in a world beyond dreams and as real as the hot flesh of her enticing warrior-husband, Madalyn discovers the power of an all-consuming passion -- as the fires of revolution threaten all she has come to love....

Excerpt from Deep, Dark & Dangerous by Jaid Black
Hollywood, California Present Day
"Why hast thou forsaken me " she raged to the heavens. "Why Oh God ' why !" She shook as she turned away from Alejandro's bulging biceps. She felt his heated stare searing her back with its intensity. "I cannot bear this temptation another minute, Lord. I cannot!"
Alejandro's nostrils flared as he turned her in his embrace. "You will make love with me, Sister Alexis." He shook her as she cried out for mercy. "You are mine."
"Leave the church, my beloved." His voice was low and insistent, his breathing heavy. "Let us consummate our love."
"Never," she gasped, backing away from him.
Sister Alexis tightly clutched the rosary beads she held, wielding them like a talisman. Her eyes were drawn to his bare washboard stomach and the beads fell to the ground, forgotten.
"No!" she protested, even as she threw herself in Alejandro's awaiting arms. He wildly kissed her as he ripped at her nunnery clothes. "Nooooooo!"
Thirty-year-old Madalyn Simon frowned up at the movie screen. Sweet Lord above, what had she been drinking when she agreed to play the role of a cloistered nun who fell in love with a matador There were low points in an actress's life and then there were low points. This farce was a bottomless pit of lowness.
"I have fought the horns of many deadly bulls," Alejandro purred, "but never have I been caught by them until you, Sister Alexis."
Madalyn winced. How bad would it look if she walked out on the premiere of her own movie Her agent would maim her. Her manager would kill what was left of her after the maiming.
"I have prayed for many souls," Sister Alexis gasped as she stroked Alejandro's hard belly, "yet I never really understood what having a soul meant until I locked eyes with you."
But then, her agent and manager didn't have to see themselves dressed like a nun in the arms of a shirtless Spanish matador muttering some of the dumbest lines ever put to paper.
She sighed. She really had to quit making movie deals over nachos and pi ' a coladas.
"Take me, Alejandro! Show me what it means to be a woman!"
That's it! She no longer cared what anyone thought. She wasn't going to watch herself look foolish for another second. There were still thirty torturous minutes left to endure until The Taming of the Shrewd was over; the rest of the crew could endure those minutes without her.
