Pleasure is his name, one that women whisper—and scream—with desire.

But now a mysterious woman he doesn’t recognize has him at her mercy, determined to punish him for reasons he doesn’t understand. Saving his own life means Pleasure must figure out which of the women from his past has a deadly obsession brought on by either the insatiable passions he ignited or the pain he caused. A secret he long since buried also arises– and even if he survives—facing it may give him a chance at real happiness—or destroy him?…

The Pleasure Trap is another testament to Bryant’s awesome imagination. . . we are swept off our feet during the climatic reveal.” –RT Book Review
