The Stranger on the Train

He came to her in the dark. She couldn't see him, but she could feel every inch of his body against hers in the most erotic encounter Rita Holly ever had.

She can have anything she's ever dreamed of—and more—but first she'll have to pass the club's initiation.

      • bioText:

        K D Grace believes Freud was right. In the end, it really IS all about sex, well sex and love. And nobody's happier about that than she, because otherwise, what would she write about? She lives in South England with her husband and the growing gang of hooligan birds who frequent their bird feeders. When K D isn't busy writing, she's busy digging in her ever-expanding veg garden or taking long walks in the British countryside. She finds inspiration outdoors in nature, and most of her best story ideas come to her while she's walking or gardening.

Rita and Edward went through all kinds of kinky hell to get where they wanted to be....and I loved being on this journey with them! A great first read for me by K.D. Grace. Can not wait to get my hands on the next book in The Mount series, Fulfilling the Contract."

        January 1, 2014

        This novel is intense from the start, with a sexy rendezvous between strangers thrown into pitch darkness on a stalled London-bound train. Rita Holly gets the name and phone number of her mysterious lover, but she never sees his face. Edward asks her to meet him at the Mount, London's most exclusive club, with almost as many rumors to its name as elite clientele. Soon, Rita is thrown into an underground world of sex and sin that she never expected to enjoy. But when the journalist within her sees the perfect opportunity for a juicy expose, it becomes an internal battle between playing the game for love and furthering her career. That is, if she can she see the initiation through to the end. A range of fetishes is explored, from tame spanking and leather play to human pets, but there remains a steady D/s element throughout. While most scenes will appeal to those into BDSM, there is a great deal of humiliation, and some of the interactions veer into gray areas regarding consent. VERDICT This intriguing novel from Grace (Seven Deadly Sins; Body Temperature and Rising) involves love, mystery, luxury, and betrayal and features a strong story with even stronger depictions of sex. There's an admirable abundance of plot and porn (though the multiple instances of dubious consent might hinder enjoyment for some), and the plethora of sexual encounters, even at their raunchiest, become a bit repetitive. Overall, a top pick for hard-core erotica fans.
