Devil’s Den # 3  
By: Violetta Rand  


Sin proves that passion goes beyond smoldering desire when hearts dance to their own special beat.

Every woman at the Devil’s Den strip club has a story to tell, and Macey Taylor is no exception. Smart and self-reliant, she’s got a chip on her shoulder, a broken heart, and no patience for a sexy new manager with an Ivy League pedigree and a strict set of rules. Macey prefers to break rules, something she lets Joshua Camden know from the start—even as he ignites a fire in her that goes beyond the hottest club in town.

Joshua is working the Devil’s Den for all it’s worth, learning everything he can about the adult-entertainment game before investing in a place of his own. Macey is a surprise: a woman as strong-willed as she is gorgeous. Joshua wants to get inside her world, to see through her eyes. But he soon discovers that seduction is a two-way street—and expecting redemption without risking his heart may be the greatest sin of all.





Raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, Violetta Rand spent her childhood reading, writing, and playing soccer. After meeting her husband in New England, they moved to Alaska where she studied environmental science and policy as an undergraduate before attending graduate school. Violetta then spent nearly a decade working as an environmental scientist, specializing in soil and water contamination and environmental assessments.
Violetta still lives in Anchorage, Alaska and spends her days writing evocative New Adult romance and historical romance. When she’s not reading, writing, or editing, she enjoys time with her husband, pets, and friends. In her free time, she loves to hike, fish, and ride motorcycles and 4-wheelers.


I’m not interested in catering to the needs of Macey Taylor. But the minute she walked into my office wearing one of my favorite fragrances, I knew I was in trouble. Of course, telling me to pull my head out of my ass didn’t help, at all. The owner filled me in on which girls I needed to handle with kid gloves. Though he praised Macey, he also warned me how resistant she is to change.

Her personality profile suggests she’s well adjusted and popular. The photograph on file does her little justice—she’s incredible. Tall and slim, her long, dark hair glistened under the soft lighting. And those legs, I bite my fist, trying to forget. Only I can’t. When I saw those hypnotic blue eyes for the first time, I had to look away. Head to toe, she’s the hottest girl in the club. One of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. And her body screams sex. Whether she stands or sits, smiles or frowns, that’s all I could think about, fucking.

She’s also exceptionally rude.

My father adhered to an antiquated Texas tradition—women and children should be seen, not heard. And my mother placated him all his life. Even now, three years after his death, she still doesn’t speak much. I make all the financial decisions and manage her life in place of her husband. I shake my head; talk about polar opposites. I’ve just met my mother’s nemesis. That’s why I need to convince Ms. Taylor to embrace my new policies. If I can, the other dancers will follow her lead.

The Devil’s Den has been open for twenty-five years. Though I respect Henry and the staff here, they’ve gathered as much dust as the outdated furniture. I’ve completed in-depth market analyses on the top gentlemen’s clubs in Texas and across the United States. I’ve honed in on what attracts the best clientele. I’m not interested in preserving the past, but providing the highest quality gentlemen’s entertainment this town has ever seen.
