Eden Bradley brings you a trio of erotic tales that explore the Darker Side of PleasureÖ

In Bonds of Love, a husband and wife use light bondage as a sexual weapon to piece back together their marriage. Cameron and Jillian become dominant and submissive, using pleasure and pain to reaffirm their love for one another. But when BDSM moves outside of the bedroom, Jillian is faced with the fears that have been haunting their marriage for months. Can their trust in each other be enough to save them?

Cassandra Lowell answers an ad for a submissive in The Lair and gets more than she bargained for. In the past, fantasies of submission have been purely that Ė fantasies, until she answers Master Robertís ad. Plunged into a sensual world of submission, Cassandra becomes one of Robertís girls, but itís not Robert who stirs her loins or captures her heart.

The final story is Love and Discipline. As a reporter Maggie sees it as her duty to report the truth. Damien Knight, a sexual extremist, challenges her by suggesting the only way she can know the truth about BDSM is to experience it. But submission doesnít only bring her to the peak of sexual desire, it opens her up to discovery and love.

The Darker Side of Pleasure is the follow up novel to The Dark Garden. This trio of erotic tales is sensual and sizzling. Ms. Bradley is not afraid of laying bare all the eroticisms that accompany a BDSM relationship. But what endeared this reader was the humanity and emotional revelations of the characters.

If you are looking for a glimpse into the world of dominance and submission, into a world where the fantasies are mesmerizing and the sex hot, look no further than The Darker Side of Pleasure.
