Book three of Facets of Passion
Danielle Sosna has no problem denying herself in order to achieve her goals–after all, that attitude landed her a dream job at Vogue Paris. But in New Orleans for one last assignment before heading overseas, she’s faced with the most decadent of temptations. Seductive Cajun chef Bobby Prejean takes Dani’s strength of will as a challenge, and offers her a night of wild indulgence–if she will agree to obey his every command…
Dani can’t resist Prejean’s invitation to join him in a world of carnal desire, complete with fetish costumes and masks. Determined to keep her emotional distance, she gives Prejean everything but her name. A night becomes a week, as she spends Mardi Gras suspended…in the delicious space where pleasure meets pain.
Too late, she realizes the cloak of anonymity has not protected her–and that chasing her dream might come at the expense of her heart.

Ruby, the latest installment in Jeffe Kennedy’s Facets of Passion series, is another intense journey of sexual discovery as Dani Sosna gives in to her secret desires with Bobby Prejean.
Dani is tightly controlled and very goal oriented. Her world is well-ordered and she is willing to make sacrifices to achieve success. Dani is shocked at the desires Prejean arouses in her but she is willing to explore the attraction between them.
Prejean is arrogant almost to the point of rudeness. But he is also extremely charismatic and his Dominant tendencies awaken Dani’s submissive cravings. He is patient with Dani as she slowly cedes sexual control to him. There is a complexity to Prejean’s character that is slowly revealed throughout the story and gives him depth that is not initially apparent.
Ms. Kennedy exquisitely builds the sexual tension between Dani and Prejean to a fever pitch. Their resulting sex scenes are explosive and incredibly erotic. Prejean is involved in the BDSM scene and he gives Dani a tantalizing (and voyeuristic) peek at the lifestyle when they visit one of the local clubs.
Ruby is a deliciously kinky addition to Jeffe Kennedy’s Facets of Passion series that fans of BDSM romances do not want to miss!
