From the Back Cover
A dangerous attraction. A scandalous seduction.
Jaci Wright has been running from the Falladay twins, Chase and Cam, for seven years now. Fears of the desires they arouse in her, and the knowledge of the relationship they wanted with her, spurred her to run, to find a life that kept her traveling the globe and out of their reach…
A double dose of erotic intrigue…
But now life has come full circle. A new job has placed Jaci in the Sinclair mansion with Chase and Cam. And they're tired of waiting. It's hard enough to face accepting a relationship with two men rather than just one, but gossip and the tattered tales of juicy secrets fill the society she now moves within. Can she face the world knowing she's a lover to both men, or will her hesitancy and her fears destroy her chance of happiness forever?
"Leigh's books can scorch the ink off the page."

The entire story line was really good because it wasn't a silly love triangle plot. I loved that the 3 main characters have known each other since they were kids. I always get so involved with stories where the characters have a rich past.
Simply excellent! You will not be disappointed if you buy this book!

Jaci travels to Virginia to do a decorating job for her best friend, Courtney Sinclair, and swiftly finds herself chin deep in the secretive group that the Sinclairs and the Falladay twins are an integral part of. Cam and Chase make it clear from the start that they have every intention of seducing Jaci into their bed and their lives, and this time, Jaci finds it impossible to resist the sexy brothers.
But both Cam and Jaci have secrets that threaten to tear their precarious relationship apart. They must learn to open up to each other if their newfound relationship is to survive.
When I first discovered Lora Leigh's work almost two years ago, the BOUND HEARTS series was one of the first I read - no, make that devoured - by this author. Infused with wicked sensuality and raw emotions, this series gained its following because it is about more than sheer sexual titillation. Underneath it all, each story is about the unselfish love the men of `The Club' have for the women in their lives.
Each of the stories in this series is chock full of the steamiest ménage love scenes you will find in a romance novel. Ms. Leigh's newest release for the BOUND HEARTS saga, WICKED PLEASURE, only kicks that steam up a few more degrees! I guarantee you that sexy twins Cam and Chase Falladay will make your temperature rise in the very best of ways... *grin* Their relationship with Jaci dates back to their childhood friendship, which serves well to increase the trust Jaci has for the two men who are intent on pleasuring her simultaneously. And really, that's the core of the Bound Hearts books - trust. Without trust, neither Jaci nor the other heroines in these books could indulge in the sexual games their men immerse them in.
Jaci is the kind of heroine you want to stand up and cheer for. While she has endured both pain and social destruction at the hands of her enemies, she has weathered it all with considerable decorum and diplomacy. Of course, that doesn't mean she simply lets them walk all over her. Oh no, Jaci has a plan to strip her foes of any power they have over her or her life and show the dastardly duo to the world as the deviants they truly are. The trick is to accomplish her mission before Cam takes matters into his own hands. This strong, independent woman is determined to handle things on her own. With a heart of gold apparent even in her early childhood and a spine of steel, it is no stretch to imagine just why Cam loves Jaci so much.
As for Cam and Chase, I daresay they could seduce even the most staid woman with barely a crook of their finger. Together, the sexuality the twins exude melts the ink right off the pages, but even on his own, Cam easily ensnares the heart and stirs the desire of both Jaci and the reader.
Despite the trauma he suffered when he was younger, Cam wants to give the woman he loves every part of himself, no matter how long it takes him to get there. If it were any woman other than Jaci, who was the child that gave him what he needed most at his lowest point before becoming the woman who gives him unconditional love and trust, I don't believe he could have opened up as he did and let go the pain of his past. The history Jaci and Cam share together make it possible to believe it as his emotional scars heal in her tender arms.
WICKED PLEASURE is a whirlwind of sensual delight and deep emotion. Readers will be swept off their feet by the same hunger and passion Lora Leigh's characters experience as they find themselves unable to put this potent story down until they reach the very last page!

Congressman Richard and Annalee Roberts have been tormenting Jaci for the past five years. They virtually blackballed her in every social circle, threatened her, and made everyone hesitant to hire her as an interior designer. Cam wanted to know why she didn't defend herself, and why she was constantly running. Jaci in turn couldn't trust Cam because he wasn't being honest with her either. There were old demons in him that kept him from wholly being with her. Those devils had been there for years, but he was more closed off to her emotionally now. Even with all the issues threatening their fragile relationship, Jaci couldn't resist Cam and Chase. Together, they showed her the intense pleasure she had denied herself in the past.
Jaci and Cam are well written characters that you will become completely immersed in. Cam has a tortured soul, and his ability to deal with his past is paramount if he hopes to have any kind of future especially one that includes Jaci. Jaci is a complex character, but the one constant in her life is the love she has for Cam. She is strong, and even though it tears her heart, she is able to tell Cam that she needs all of him not just bits and pieces. A good story that will be hard to put down until you are finished.
For starters, Cam and his obsession with Jaci - everyone is sooo scared he will kill anyone who hurts her!! The people who "hurt" her were gossiping about her so him wanting to kill them was WAY over the top. A simple lawsuit would have ended everyone's problems. Cam isn't coming off as a strong alpha male - he's more like psycho in need of in-patient therapy and strong medication!! His background check which reveals she's on the pill so he knows he doesn't have to use condoms??? That's not sexy, that's "call the cops, the man's a stalker"
Also, why must ALL women in LL books wear thongs and their men DEMAND they go Brazilian!!! Can't they own a cute pair of boy shorts or bikinis??? And why are these tortured souls always 20 something men lusting after underage girls counting the days until these girls turn 18???
I think Lora Leigh needs to stop cranking out books so quickly and maybe take a vacation to relax and get some new ideas!!
Cameron Falladay had no choice but to grow up quickly. Holding himself responsible for keeping Chase out of harm's way, Cameron doesn't allow anyone into his heart. Once long ago, a tiny auburn haired waif promised she would wait for him forever. Cameron decides with one look at the grown up and mature Jaci that she is his for the taking. And takes her he does. With his brother by his side, Cam shows Jaci every wicked and sexually enticing thing she missed by running seven years ago.
Cameron and Jaci begin their forbidden affair with their eyes open - and Chase waiting in the wings. While the society in which they move usually turns a blind eye, there are some who don't. Tales are told, gossip is whispered, and while Jaci strives to not let vicious rumors and innuendos bother her, she can't help but hear what others are saying. Loving Cameron as much as she does, Jaci doesn't want to give up what they have together. Will Cameron be able to give her what she needs? And what she needs is his heart and his love - forever.
Every time I pick up a Lora Leigh book, I admittedly have high expectations that I won't be able to put it down. WICKED PLEASURE delivered such an experience. The next seven hours of my life were spent completely engrossed in this tale. From reading Ms. Leigh's early Bound Hearts novels released through Ellora's Cave, I knew to expect a marvelously written storyline with dynamically portrayed characters.
Cameron Falladay is one of the most complex male characters I have ever experienced. The victim of a horrible, mind numbing past, he spends the consecutive years after reaching adulthood striving to get over and away from anything that reminded him of his youth. The only bright point in his life? His memories of Jaci Wright. She alone made him feel whole, and once he realizes this he stops running. Jaci Wright is beautifully written as well. Shy, hesitant, but completely in love with Cameron, she is willing to accept what parts of himself he is able to give. Is she submissive? Not in the least. Jaci is smart and knows that deep down inside Cam loves her. She just had to find the way to make him realize his feelings. Her fortitude and unconditional love is what amazed me the most.
As the ninth installment to Lora Leigh's Bound Hearts series, WICKED PLEASURE lives up to its title. Wicked, intense, suspenseful - this book has it all and more! From beginning to end I was carried away and exposed to emotions that I can't even describe. Just know that Cameron and Jaci's story is one that shouldn't be missed. Even if no other installments have been read, WICKED PLEASURE is a standalone and can be read out of order. Readers won't want to miss a word of this tempting and provocative novel.
WICKED PLEASURE will release from St. Martin's on May 13, 2008. My copy is already pre-ordered and paid for!
It also appears to me that in most of her writings, the female has been in love with the male(s) since they were quite young (usually pre teen) and the male was several years older (6 years or more) - this one is no different.
I know this is erotica and not a typical romance, but I really didn't get the sense of an ending here, happily ever after or otherwise. It seems as though she left Chase hanging in the wind. Jaci didn't strike me as too bright and she was a bit too ambiguous for my taste. I hope that there won't be a sequel and that the next novel Lora writes bring us something new and exciting as were her earliest works. I haven't given up faith - it's just on hold.
