Newly engaged couple Athena Lewis and David Carrone are off to celebrate the best way they know how—in bed someplace far from the glittering lights of Las Vegas. They arrive on a private island where pleasure, fun, and relaxation await—or so they believe. When they are invited to the island’s most exclusive club, they soon discover that the “Mansion” is no ordinary nightclub. Luckily, David and Tena are no ordinary couple. Looking to add more excitement to their relationship, they take the opportunity to explore their secret desires. But a night of passionate exploration brings back painful memories from Tena’s past and pushes them apart. Afraid to let her phobia sever their special bond, Tena sets out to prove to David just how much she trusts him with her body—even if it means balancing on the edge of danger… **Note: this short story is a continuation of the novel, HIS BEDPOST QUEEN. Both stories, however, can be read as standalones.
