Between Despair and Ecstasy by Daryl Devoré #BookHugs #hot #romance

The finale of Erika and Darien’s epic rollercoaster romance.

How can Erika prove to herself and Darien that she loves and trusts him? Simple. All she has to do is jump out of a plane.


Concerned for his fiancée, Erika Bailey’s safety, rock star Darien Scott races to Bangkok to protect her, only to discover his brother is missing. Fearing the worse, he contacts his nemesis, Gan, and makes a repulsive deal that will free his brother and protect Erika’s club, The Pink Flamingo. Or so he thought. When a python and Gan are involved, things go sour, and Darien sinks into a deep depression.

Erika is disheartened by the betrayal of her parents. Her father’s destruction of her club, and the humiliation of her mother’s drunken behavior have her feeling down, but those are the least of her worries. She has a wedding to plan, but won’t. Having been betrayed too often, she’s scared to trust Darien.

Darien opened his mouth to speak. She placed a finger on his lips. “Ssh. I should have thought about that. You must come off the stage pretty wired up, and it has been a while. I do have to admit, I’m more than a little horny, too. We can leave all this romance until tomorrow.” She grinned. “When you’ve gotten the fire out of your system.”

Yes,” his cock yelled. “Do it.

“There is no getting the fire out of me when I’m around you. You make me burn.” He hunched his shoulders. “You’re right. I was in charge in India. So tonight, you’re the Boss Lady. What do you want me to do?”

“You sure?”

He grinned. “Let’s just say, I know the end to this and the longer you take, the more I’m gonna make you scream. So it’s a win-win. What do I do?”

“Two things. Put me down then lay down.”

“Those I can do.” He released his hold on her then knelt on the bed. “Belly or back?”


He stretched out, propping his arms behind his head.

She climbed onto the bed, straddled him and settled her hips on his. The vision before him was electrifying, her cute short hair, those fabulous gray-blue eyes, and that body that gave him an instant hard-on.

“What’re you grinning at?” She opened the bottle of massage oil.

“The view. I love the view. Of you.” She bounced as he chuckled. “I could write that into a song.” He sang, “I’m so in love with you. The view of you. Your gorgeous breasts. Breasts. Breasts. I’m stuck on your breasts.”

“You silly.” She slapped his belly. “I should hop off and go sleep in another room.”

He snapped his mouth closed, shook his head then crossed his heart and held up his hand.

“Somehow, I doubt you were ever a Boy Scout. Let’s see. Punishment for a bad boy.” She glanced around the room. “Ah.” Jumping off the bed, Erika dashed to the closet, pulled a belt off one of the bathrobes and returned.

Darien held out his wrists. “Oh, yeah. Bad boy needs punishing.”
