Once upon a time, Lynda Phelps was married to a philanderer. When she
discovered his extracurricular activities, she quickly gave him the boot. After
divorcing her ex-husband, she decided it was her turn to play the field – and
found she quite liked it. Lynda wasn’t shy about grabbing what she wanted,
exploring the world of sex in all of its various flavors, until she discovered
that the dirtier the sex, the more she enjoyed it.
But that all changed when she met the conservative Jordan Summers. Now Lynda
wears the pretty little lacy things he gives her while hiding her leathers in
the back of her closet. Lynda loves Jordan more than she thought possible, but
she’s certain a man as conventional as he is would never understand her darker
desires… Would he?
I first discovered Lacey Alexander’s work with her novel VOYEUR,
with which she quickly caught my attention. I was compelled to begin buying her
backlist, and found to my utter delight that she has quite a few books under her
belt with ePublisher Ellora’s Cave. Now my Lacey Alexander library is nearly
complete, and I have even found time to read them all! OK, I made time. With
my to be read pile containing hundreds of books, I have to make time to read
certain books these days. And it is very easy to get swept away in the plots of
this author’s wonderful tales!
introduces us to her CITY HEAT
series, in which Alexander show us just how hot various cities can get! Where
better to begin than in one of the South’s must sultry cities – the Big Easy
itself. New Orleans, Louisiana provides the perfect backdrop to this very sexy
In spite of her past sexual freedom, Lynda is determined to be faithful to
Jordan, even as she becomes silently resigned to the idea that he may never be
able to completely fulfill her sexually. Deciding she is willing to trade her
more decadent sexual urges for true love, she resolves to never tell him of her
feelings of unrest, and concentrates on stifling them. Her ideals are
admirable, albeit misplaced, and as Jordan soon proves, unnecessary.
Fate soon takes the decision out of Lynda’s hands. A set of chance happenings
stir a part of Jordan she never suspected might exist – one he himself never
suspected! Even after this more than satisfying experience, each is afraid the
other won’t want to continue. This couple readily admits their love for each
other from page one, but their reluctance to expose their secret fantasies and
needs threatens their relationship, making for a gripping tale with some very
explosive love scenes!
LYNDA’S LACE is available individually in eBook form from Ellora’s
Cave, and in a print volume titled CITY HEAT which combines it
with its sequel, CARTER’S CUFFS. If you love sizzling romances
with some ménage content (with a female/female scene), you will want to grab a
copy of this gem for yourself very soon!
