The Black Dahlia Hotel Three

Two years ago gallery owner, Melodie Buxton, was attacked and stabbed outside her art gallery in the Tribeca section of lower Manhattan.  When she awoke in the hospital with a knife wound on her face, she vaguely remembered the dark presence that held her barely conscious body and attempted to stop the bleeding.  After she left the hospital she was unable to find out his name.

Dom Logan Hawk, lead singer and guitar in Dark Place, a rock band popular with the alternative lifestyle communities, had seen the attack.  He had stopped to help the beautiful young woman he’d noticed in the neighborhood but had not yet gotten up the nerve to approach.  As he put pressure on her wound and felt her pulse under his hands and her blood flow through his fingers, he knew that their souls had bonded.

Two years after the attack, the angry red swirls running through the beautiful, tranquil pastel abstract painting in the window of Melodie’s gallery drew Logan.  The small signature at the bottom of the painting told him Melodie was the artist.  He wanted to walk into the gallery and talk to her but he hesitated.  He’d had glimpses of her through the gallery window since the attack and knew that she covered the side of her face where the scar would be.  One day on the urging of his band members he walked into the gallery to talk to her.  When she learned that he was her guardian angel she agreed to have lunch with him, and a relationship developed.

The cloud on the horizon came in the form of Logan’s dangerous female fan and stalker, Karin Sanders.   Karin realized that Logan and Melodie’s romance endangered her delusions of a relationship with Logan, and she is determined to get rid of her rival in any way she can.  When Karin attacked Melodie on the street outside Rockefeller Plaza at the Christmas tree lighting ceremony, Logan and Melodie retreat to the new BDSM hotel in Florida owned by his friend, Jack Dalton Brown.

Can Logan overcome Melodie’s need to hide her scar as well as the malevolent intentions of the stalker and compose a happy ever after?

Broward Sheriff’s Office Detective Chloe Carlton works out of the Strategic Investigation Division that handles narcotics and vice.  Although he was crazy about her Chloe’s boyfriend, the charming and handsome attorney and Dom, John James Temple, was very uncomfortable introducing a vice cop to his law partners and friends.  And he certainly couldn’t take her to the luxurious, private BDSM club called The Black Iris in the penthouse of the JDB Building.  Chloe confronts J. J. about the fact that she had not met any of his friends.  He makes the mistake of being truthful and tells her that her job as a vice cop makes him uncomfortable, and they break up.

Months later, Homicide Detectives Kaylin Gallagher and Del Lord investigate the case of a young girl found dead in a commercial shipping container near Port Everglades.  They consult Chloe regarding the case.  She advised them that the case might involve human trafficking.  A joint taskforce between Homicide and Strategic Investigations is formed to look into the apparent disappearance of young, homeless runaway girls from the streets of downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Chloe and Kaylin, with the help of Kaylin’s boyfriend and Dom, the handsome Jack Dalton Brown, put together a fund raiser at The Black Iris Club for the Sistrunk Outreach Shelter, a facility for homeless teens.  Chloe is confronted unexpectedly at the fund raiser by J. J. Temple.  After some fireworks, they manage to patch up their differences and give their relationship another try.

J.’s senior partner’s wife, the beautiful socialite Anne Marie McGrath, might be the mysterious dark-haired woman in a black Mercedes who has been offering to buy the young runaway girls lunch and new outfits.   J. J. is incensed that Chloe has instigated an investigation of his friend and partner’s wife—just what he had feared all along.

Can their fragile relationship survive a second bout of heated and unkind words, and can the taskforce save the missing girls?

Gabriella’s Prosecution, Book 3 by Skye Michaels Release Date 7/7/14

M/F Erotic Romance/BDSM/Heat Level:  Sextreme

Gabriella Maria Delaveccia is an Assistant State’s Attorney with the Broward County State’s Attorney’s Office.  She has worked for the very handsome but enigmatic and sometimes difficult State’s Attorney, Miguel Gatto, since his election two years ago.  Miguel is a not-so-typical Latin male with control issues.  He keeps a tight hand on every case in the office, and Gabby had been wondering if she would ever progress past second chair.  While Gabby is wildly attracted to Miguel and has been singed by his macho aura, she is afraid of that attraction.  It wouldn’t be smart to get involved with the boss.  Although, she has fantasized about him in the privacy of her houseboat, Gabby’s Nest, for two years, she tried to convince herself that she couldn’t stand him being near her when she really wanted to climb into his skin.

Miguel Juan Carlos Gatto-Alba is a sadist whose roots in Spain go back to the Inquisition.  The kinky strain has come down through the Gatto family tree to the present day.  As a member of the exclusive and secret Black Iris Club, Miguel has dealt with his sexual kink through the use of BDSM to keep his urges under control.  Safe words and protocols help him curb his urges.  His dark side is very intriguing but more than a little scary.  The Gatto family were some of the early settlers in Puerto Rico, and they still live on the family estate, Bahia Honda, in the mountains above San Juan.   All the Gatto men have been Doms since before that word or concept existed.  Miguel wanted Gabriella from the moment he first saw her in the office, but in his political position, he has to be careful.  Scandal could ruin not only his legal career but his hopes for a future in politics.

When Gatto assigns a high profile but dangerous case to Gabby to prosecute he is worried that he is putting her in the crosshairs of the defendant, Ramόn Gonzalez, head of the El Salvadoran Los Mara Toros Rojas gang.  Miguel finally takes a chance and initiates a relationship with Gabriella, but can they deal with the dangerous case unfolding around them as well as a dangerous attraction to each other?
