Summary

"'This prisoner deserves special treatment.' The hooded man looked over at the young man again." 
Elsdon Taylor, a prisoner accused of committing a terrible murder. Layle Smith, a torturer with a terrible past. Their meeting in the Eternal Dungeon appears certain to bring out the worst in both men. 
Yet neither man is quite what he appears. As the prisoner and his torturer begin to be drawn toward each other, the ripple effects of their meeting will have a powerful impact on other inhabitants of the Eternal Dungeon: Layle's faithful guard, struggling to contain his doubts. A younger guard determined to take any shortcuts necessary to ensure that his life follows the path he has already chosen. An old love from Layle's past, still sorrowing. And most of all, a prisoner who has not yet arrived at the Eternal Dungeon, but whose fate will depend on how Layle handles Elsdon Taylor . . . and on how Elsdon handles Layle Smith. 
A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards (within the "Eternal Dungeon" omnibus), this tale of love and adventure can be read on its own or as the first volume in The Eternal Dungeon, a speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips. 
The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, The Eternal Dungeon, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

    I was standing at the bar and waiting for a friend when it happened. 
    When my life changed forever. 
      
    She strutted inside with her head held high with grace, not pretentiousness. With legs that reached her neck, and an hourglass frame perfect for gripping, she got me hard instantly.  
      
    And those green eyes got the rest of my body hard too.  
      
    Mistaking me for the man who cheated on her friend, she walked up to me, those green eyes burning with fire, and she slapped me so hard my skin bubbled. 
      
    And damn, it felt good. 
      
    She slapped me two more times, using her petite size to gain momentum as her palm crushed into my skin. 
      
    I never wanted it to end.  
      
    I'd never met a woman who made pain feel so good. I'd never met a woman as strong as myself. I'd never met a woman I wanted to dominate more.  
      
    I'd never met a woman like her. 
      
    Rome Moretti. 
      
    My next submissive.

    Road To Hell: 
    Violet Harper is just about to turn seventeen when her world is torn apart. Fleeing from her home and from the creatures who took everything from her, she ends up in New York. The city that never sleeps isn’t quite the safe haven that she’d hoped for. It is teeming with demons who are out for her blood. 
    Encountering three strange allies, Violet soon learns that a war is raging between heaven and hell and that she is directly in the middle of it. The new master of hell is planning a hostile takeover of Earth. It is apparently her destiny to stop him from breaking open the gates to the underworld and releasing a flood of ravenous demons on humanity. 
    Armed with only her wits and sarcasm, it will take strength and courage that she never knew she possessed to face the ordeals ahead. What Violet doesn’t know yet is that she won’t be alone. The guardian angel she’d always thought was just in her imagination is very real. He will be watching over her and guarding her back as she faces the minions of hell.

If she does, she will have to juggle seeing him with training and searching for the hidden entrances to hell. Keeping him a secret from the rest of the team will be far from easy. If Nathan finds out, she isn’t sure what the consequences would be. 
    Her friends aren’t the only angels who are trapped in the city. Violet meets two more celestial beings and it is hard to tell whether they are her allies or her enemies. Even with her personal life in disarray, she can’t lose focus on her task. She must to enter the eighth realm of hell, confront one of the Demon Princes and find the next piece of the mysterious object of power.

    Her secret relationship with Zach is facing its own challenges. He is unaware of the struggles that she faces, but he has his own problems to deal with. His troubles might not be supernatural in nature, yet they could easily tear them apart. To add to her burden, she has to fight her growing feelings for her guardian angel, Nathan. 
    As if things weren’t already bad enough, the Hellmaster’s pet raven is seeking vengeance for the loss of its eye. Hell bent on punishing her, its revenge triggers an event that will change everything for Violet. If she survives her trip to the seventh realm of hell, she won’t be the same person when she returns.

    Four young ladies enter London society with one necessary goal:they must use their feminine wit and wiles to find a husband. So they band together, and a daring husband-hunting scheme is born. 
    It Happened at the Ball... 
    Where beautiful but bold Lillian Bowman quickly learned that her independent American ways weren't entirely "the thing." And the most disapproving of all was insufferable, snobbish, and impossible Marcus, Lord Westcliff, London's most eligible aristocrat. 
    It Happened in the Garden… 
    When Marcus shockingly -- and dangerously–swept her into his arms. Lillian was overcome with a consuming passion for a man she didn't even like. Time stood still; it was as if no one else existed…thank goodness they weren't caught very nearly in the act! 
    It Happened One Autumn... 
    Marcus was a man in charge of his own emotions, a bedrock of stability. But with Lillian, every touch was exquisite torture, every kiss an enticement for more. Yet how could he consider taking a woman so blatantly unsuitable…as his bride?
