Julia's literary agent arranges a weekend trip for the young writer to conduct research at a club. Not just any club, a BDSM club. Arriving early, Julia encounters shirtless business owner, Alexandre, who exudes power and sex appeal from every orifice of his sculpted, hard body. When an obsessed fan discovers where Julia is staying, Alexandre and his security staff vow to protect her. Haunted by violent and torrid memories, Julia must decide if the sexy French club owner is worthy of her trust, or if he's every bit as terrifying as the monster stalking her like prey.
