From the Desk of Donna Edith…

My services are unconventional. My clients come to me with needs and I match them to other clients with needs of their own…

Promising young architect Killian Fitzroy: Driven, clever, eager to prove himself. Starved for sex, though he's come to me for professional assistance, not personal. Needs: Someone unique, creative and fast. An artist with a feminine perspective to breathe life into a house he's built.

Aspiring scenic designer Vessa Ratham: Sensuous, spontaneous, but secretive. Recently returned to Vermont armed with an art degree that qualifies her for little more than waiting tables. Needs: An opportunity to shine.

Yes, Killian and Vessa will satisfy each other nicely—in more ways than one.

Listen up folks, you MUST read this phenomenal book the moment you can get your filthy little hands on it. I'm not sure how she did it, but Ms. Gold has created something seriously magical here and left me panting for more.

When scenic artist Vessa Ratham is referred to Donna Edith, she's not sure what to expect from someone she assumes is a mixture of matchmaker and headhunter. What she finds is a very intimidating woman who reads her like a book and places her with promising architect Killian Fitzroy. Killian is in need of an artist to help set him apart from his colleagues, and Vessa needs to start to build her portfolio with a respected clientele. It doesn't hurt that the two of them are incredibly attracted to one another, a bonus of Ms. Edith's varied services.

Vessa gets straight to work on the über feminine, girly designs that Killian wants, and time and time again he's blown away by her sensual, eclectic and completely unique spaces. As the two spend time working together, the eroticism of the space envelops them and they quickly become addicted to each other. But once the house is finished, will the incredible desire for one another come to an end as well?

Ho-LEEE mother of pearl, this book is spectacular!!! I can't even adequately express what it is about Ms. Gold's dirty, sensual story that had me so turned on. Maybe it was the way she used decorating and color and architecture in such a base, sensual way, or maybe it was the almost mystical sense of otherworldly attraction between Killian and Vessa, but she had me wrapped around her little typing fingers from page one. I stayed up late into the night reading this, afraid that some of the magic would dissipate in the light of day and it wouldn't be nearly as all-consuming. But it is. It really, REALLY is.

On the surface, there's little character development of Vessa and Killian, but at the same time you somehow feel like you know these two intimately and are as wrapped up in them as they are with each other. It's so bizarre, the way this book took seemingly mundane paint samples and antiques and mirrors and cups of coffee and turned them into scenes so fabulously erotic that I was literally holding my breath. Even the secondary characters carried an air of humor, understated sexiness and normality that served to bring even more depth to this story. This book is unlike any I've read before, and I LOVED it!

Bottom Line: It's erotic, it's filthy dirty sex at its most elemental level, it's finding a kindred spirit when you weren't looking, it's nothing short of brilliant. Get. This. Now.
