Alexander Black is a magician who'd fallen for heiress Gabriella Winslow a decade earlier when they'd perfected his act together. She was his assistant, before he hit it big. Though they loved each other, he was painfully aware that she was living beneath her means. When Gabriella fell ill, he couldn't afford to take care of her and abandoned her to her father's care.
For Gabriella, no man has ever measured up to Alex. By tying her up and putting her on stage, he'd taken her places no other man had. Although she could never trust him, she still longs for the man who'd awakened her sexual desires.
When Alex reappears, Gabriella finds herself drawn helplessly into his erotic vortex. Only this time she is guarding her heart. He seems intent on keeping her, but what she doesn't understand is why Alex left her only to reappear as if nothing had changed ten years later.
Smoke and Mirrors is an erotic foray into obsession, bondage and exhibitionism. The setting, a limo and a magician's lair, along and the rags-to-riches premise are interesting backdrops for this quick erotic adventure.
Heiress Gabriella Winslow learned that lesson years ago when her magician boyfriend abandoned her, sick and alone, hundreds of miles from home. In the years that followed, she’s tried to forget him and the erotic bondage games they used to play. But the life she’s made for herself since then still leaves her restless and yearning for something more.
Now a successful illusionist, Alexander Black has returned to settle an old score. And to seduce Gabriella. With a blindfold and handcuffs and blood red roses, he entices his former lover and magician’s assistant back to his Las Vegas penthouse. Alex is an expert at smoke and mirrors. If all goes according to plan, she’ll never even know she’s his prisoner.
