This trio of sensual stories revolves around three best friends as they explore their sexuality at The Sex Club. At this club one can watch or participate in almost anything they could possible imagine in a classy and safe atmosphere.


Debbie Carter isn’t sure how she feels about attending a bachelorette party at a sex club, but she’s willing to go for her friends’ sake. She’s frustrated at her husband’s lack of desire in her and it has affected her self confidence in all aspects of her life. Stephan Knight has never met Debbie, but he’s corresponded with her through email. He’s fifty and never been married because the right woman has never come along. Now he’s found her, and she’s married to another man. He’s going to do everything in his power to show her what a desirable, lovable woman she truly is in Invitation to Seduction.


Virginia Hansen is getting married for the fourth time. The first three marriages were impulsive and based on sex, but this time she’s marrying for stability. Brett Branoff is cool and reserved and knows that Virginia is the perfect choice for a wife. He secretly follows her to The Sex Club and realizes she’s not the less than passionate woman who’s shared his bed so far. When he gives her an Invitation to Pleasure he experiences just how sensual she is.


In Invitation to Passion Stacy Parrish is a long time visitor to The Sex Club. She’s old enough to know what she wants and prefers her lovers young and eager. Judson McCord, owner of the club, has befriended Stacy, but now wants much more from her than friendship. But first he’ll have to prove to her that an older man can satisfy her sexual appetites as well as give her the love she doesn’t even know she wants.


There are so many things I adored about this book. All three stories are very passionate, giving the erotic scenes an intimacy which makes them so much more than just an arousing story. The women are in their forties and have experienced both love and heartache. Now they are old enough to appreciate true love when they find it and also young enough to love life and sex. The men are in their forties and fifties, presenting us with an older than usual character. This makes them mature enough to fully appreciate a woman and give them much more than just a good time. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, and it certainly won’t be the last!
