"Don't speak too soon, little swan. I have diabolical plans for you this week," he warned. 

His voice had dropped to an infernal level, and an insistent, reactionary flutter began to pulse directly between my thighs. 

" diabolical?" I asked. 

He looked at me briefly with devious, heated eyes. He was unmistakably seductive. 

And unmistakably threatening.

"Absolutely depraved."

And then, there was quiet. 

Physically, I knew nothing had changed. My heart still raced. My legs still shook. My breaths were short and shallow, and my stomach continued to flip. 

But there was an unmistakable hush, and I couldn't tell if that exquisite solace was sourced from my body or from his. It was as if I'd spent my entire life surrounded by white noise, and I was experiencing true, absolute silence for the first time. 

My fearful body was not dancing to anxiety. 

It was dancing entirely to arousal.


All April wants is a moment of quiet. But due to an ongoing struggle with mental illness, silence has become an elusive privilege she fears she'll never capture. An eating disorder has brought her burgeoning ballet career to a sudden halt, and a traumatic experience in a strict rehabilitation facility has rendered her more humble than ever. Now that she has returned to her native Southern California, April is content to conceal the dangerous half of herself she fears under a tenuous white mask of control.

But the façade is disrupted when April meets William - her older, mysterious, and disgraced new employer. She finds freedom in him, for like her, he is also two-natured. There's a mask he shows the world.


And a dark, true half he hides...

A novel in three acts.


As the youngest Executive Director of the most popular dating app in the country, 28-year-old Violet Wetherby is a new kind of "it girl." But despite her incredible success, a painful, secret past haunts her more than she can continue to bear.

Desperate for one night of relief, she hires elite male escort Gabriel de Graaf, certain their date will be nothing more than a one-time walk on the wild side.

But Gabriel awakens a passion within her she thought was long lost, and Violet soon realizes that one night with the working man won't be close to enough...
