Shelley Bradley is back with a BANG!!! Totally turning the tables, she is coming out with her first contemporary story that’s just too hot to handle, but if you give it a try, you won’t be sorry!

Kerry Sullivan’s brother has been charged with embezzling millions of dollars from the back where he works. After her pleas that he is innocent have fallen on deaf ears, she turns desperate and tries to hire electronic security expert, Rafael Dawson. But when she contacts him, he doesn’t listen a word she says and hangs up on her. Now she’s really desperate and comes up with a scheme to get Rafe to help her whether he likes it or not.

After being hired to do a security sweep for the bank's security system, Rafael Dawson’s plane lands at a Florida airport and he is greeted by the sexiest limo “hostess” he has ever seen. Now, this is the way to treat a client! After climbing into the limo and having a drink, Rafe is feeling a little, um... shall we say ‘frisky’ and starts taking liberties with his sexy escort, until fatigue claims him and he passes out before he has scarcely begun his seduction.

Ok, so Kerry is feeling a little guilty about all of this. She was able to get him into the limo, albeit by wearing such skimpy clothes, she was lucky he didn’t ounce on her in the airport. And..ok…the limo driver (who was her accomplice in this whole scheme) spiked his drink with a drug to since it would make him easier to kidnap him. Guilt aside, Kerry knows she’s doing the right thing; he just has to help clear her brother’s name before his trial. But when Rafe wakes up to find himself tied spread eagled and naked to a bed, he’s not in the mood to negotiate a bargain. In fact, the only thing he wants is to get this beautiful, sexy woman under him fast and teach her a lesson that only a man of his experience can.

Holy cow! This story fairly burns the pages the words are written on. Fun, fast and most of all sexy, this book has it all. The characters as so well written, you’ll swear they’re old friends. The sensations and feelings of Kerry and Rafe are not lost on the reader; in fact, you’ll almost feel as if you’re a fly on the wall.

The sex is very hot, so for those of you who are not into a little bondage and intense sex, be warned. But if you like your stories to have this hot, sexy element then grab a cold drink, with plenty of ice (because you’re going to need it!) and dig in to Bound and Determined. You’re gonna love it, I guarantee it!!!
