Tagline:  Halloween and an abandoned hotel are the lure to a tryst that could prove to be deadly and sexy...


A haunted and abandoned hotel on Halloween is the setting for a very private party between two lovers, one of them a world-class, sophisticated intelligence operative who’s trying to teach his young and innocent lady that curiosity can sometimes take you places you’d be better not to go. Amid elaborate trappings meant to scare and entice, Rick’s seduction takes some unexpected but wickedly wonderful twists. But, Rick also has a lesson to learn, when his past collides with his present, and almost destroys everything he cherishes most.

Publisher’s Note: This story was originally published in 2004 as Bound, but has been revised and extensively expanded for Ellora’s Cave.


Reckless Assignation starts out like a wicked horror film.  However, the terror turns to passion as Rick sets up an elaborate play date for his young, inexperienced Cinthya.  The story is a thrilling rollercoaster ride that had me white-knuckling my chair as I read.  It has very appropriately been classified as an erotic thriller.

It’s easy to like this couple.  The reader can tell by the extravagant set up and time that went into orchestrating their liaison, that Rick loves Cindi very much.  Cindi plays along and gives as good as she gets.  Their love making is hot, steamy, and a little bit kinky.  This couple is extremely sexy and likes to play.

As a reader, I was drawn into their world by Denysé Bridger’s wonderful descriptions.  It felt like I was in the old run down hotel.  Quite honestly, I had to stop reading a couple times.  Between the descriptions and my imagination, I scared myself to death.

If you are looking for an erotic thriller then you don’t want to miss out on this story.  Besides being a little scary it is also cute with some plot twists that had me on the edge of my seat.
