Synopsis:
Explore a hidden world of erotic fantasies, where the greatest pleasures are stolen and the fiercest passions are untamed. . . 

For years, Callie Taylor has been obsessed with two things: a man she can never have and escaping to Paris where she can follow her artistic passions. But everything changes when Callie meets Wes Thorne, a wealthy, mysterious art collector and famous dominant. Despite all the nights she's spent dreaming of another man, it is Wes's predatory gaze that suddenly consumes her every thought and sets her body on fire. One touch from him promises unforgettable passion, but Callie knows that passion often comes with a price...



From the moment he sets eyes on Callie, Wes is intrigued by her artistic talent and her delightful innocence of all things erotic. A stolen kiss leaves him aching and desperate to claim her in a way he's never wanted any woman. But first he must convince her to surrender her control. And what better place to seduce an artistic soul like Callie's than Paris? 



My Thoughts:
We met Callie in The Gilded cage, she was in love with Fenn Lockwood. This book started where Callie got an invite to Fenn's engagment party. Poor Callie is devastated and I can't help but to feel for her. Wes Thorne has had his eyes on Callie since he got into town, but he knows that Callie is still hung up on Fenn. He offers Callie an arrangement of sorts. Give him a certain amount of time to convince her that they would make a good couple and he would pay for her art school. Callie accepts the offer and then she finds herself whisked away to Paris. I loved how Callie's opinion of Wes changed and she started to realize that there was definitely something between them. I've loved this whole series and I can't wait to read more from Lauren Smith.
