Devil’s Den # 2
By: Violetta Rand
Releasing March 17th, 2015
Perfect for readers of Abbi Glines, Seduction returns to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where hearts can’t hide when the chemistry is right.
The night Marisela Gonzalez rides up to the Devil’s Den on her motorcycle, running from trouble and looking for her sister, she finds more than a place to hide out and work her red-hot body. She meets a guy brave enough to stand by a tough, terrified nineteen-year-old girl who’s been in the wrong place with the wrong jerk one too many times. And he’s ready to show Marisela how a real man treats the woman he desires.
An ex-cop taking over as the club’s head of security, Craig Hanson can handle anything—except the urgent need he suddenly feels to hold Marisela tight. Commitment has never been his thing, but all that changes when Craig finds something too real to deny between them. Sensual and vulnerable, Marisela’s got a scary past. And when it comes knocking, Craig goes all in to protect her—because seduction is the ultimate game changer.

Excerpt: I can’t believe Marisela Gonzalez is standing in my office all grown up, in skintight leathers with windblown hair. She’s something out of a fantasy. I’d kill to fist my hands in that long, silky mane. I’m sure this is payback from some higher power. She’s nervous. It concerns me. Sargent worries me even more. This girl needs to leave town by tomorrow—she’s gonna be on every Bandito’s shit list by morning. She nearly bashed his brains in—he’ll need stitches. almost need stitches. I look at my arm. It stings. She intervened at the right moment. I owe her, but I won’t ever tell her that. Girls shouldn’t act the way she did.
I hold the office door open. She gives me a look and heads for her bike. She mounts it like a pro and revs the engine. I can’t help staring. She slides her black helmet on and slams the visor down. I circle behind her to a take a look at her perfect ass perched on the seat. My mouth waters. I have to remind myself who she is. Likely off-limits. But I’ll enjoy the image of her on that bike for nights to come. She drives off the breezeway and stops. She stares at me and I point toward my Mustang.
I get in my car and rev my engine, too. I turn onto South Padre Island Drive, watching for her in my rearview. She’s gone. . . . I look right. She’s next to me and flips me the bird. I punch the gas and fly by her. Her little Ducati is no match for my car—for me. We race down S.P.I.D. until I put on my directional and merge left so she’ll know to exit off Weber. She does, and I drive another mile before turning onto Robyn’s street.
I see Garrick and Robyn a couple of times a month now. We’ve remained friends—worked out our differences after all the Carlos drama. I’m not sure how they’re going to react to Marisela. She’s entirely different from the silly little girl I drove to the grocery store so long ago. Her personality is sharper, more intense. And her face and body . . . I shake my head and park in front of Robyn’s house. The lights are on inside. I get out and wait for Marisela. She approaches me, carrying a small duffel bag and her helmet. “Where’s your stuff?” I ask.
She holds up her bag.
“What else do I need?” She twirls around and heads up the walkway to the front door. Her hot little ass speaks to me subliminally as she walks. Less than an hour talking to her and I’m already hooked. She knocks and the front door opens. Garrick is in his pajama bottoms.
“Marisela?” He sounds as surprised as I was.
“Garrick,” I greet him.
“What in the hell are you two doing here together this time of night?” Here comes the big-brother act.
“It’s a long story,” I answer, eyeing Marisela.
Garrick holds the door open. “I suggest you both come inside and tell us.”
