I chose Jessica. I married her. She saved me.

But what would happen if the wind shifted direction? If I made new suggestions and changed my line of sight?

I would have focused on the unattainable because nothing was out of my reach. Nothing.

Children. Happiness. Success.

Then why did I have an uneasy feeling? The kind of sensation an animal feels just before a storm? It was subtle enough to ignore yet strong enough to prick me, reminding me that denial would result in severe repercussions to my psyche or my marriage.

Suffer now or suffer later.

I had a choice.

Singe mom. PhD candidate. Cocktail waitress.

I didn't plan it this way, but sometimes things happen.

I didn't plan to leave my family and friends behind, but sometimes circumstances change.

I didn't plan to fall for anyone, but then I met Jonathan Drazen's friend, Sam. He wants things I'm not sure I can give, but I can't seem to stay away.

1935. America struggles in the grip of depression. Yet happy days are here again, they’re told. Booze is back. Breadlines are shorter. Drought-weary farmers have left the dusty Middle West plains for the sweet and dripping golden groves of California.

In Los Angeles, bean fields are turned into boulevards, farm girls into femme fatales, and dreams and names are made and lost overnight.

Jack O’Drassen is an East Coast Irish prince looking to build a kingdom out of Hollywood’s back lots. But when he meets a beautiful young woman on the train heading west, he falls. Hard.

Minnie is a mystery. A girl with mischief in her eyes and worry on her brow. She has big plans but few words. A bright future and a murky past.

Yet LA is a land of dreams. And dreams are illusions. Even nightmares. Jack’s sanity, his sobriety, even his life is threatened. All to answer one question:

Who is the girl on the train?

Her kryptonite.

With her.

Two months.

That’s how much time I have to woo Hollywood before I have to go back to my job in Houston, teaching high school drama.

I don’t have time to be patient, and I damn well am not about to settle for being a stereotype. They got the wrong Latina if they think Ariana Delarosa Alvarado is going to play by their rules.

I’ve got my own set of rules, especially in the bedroom, and I plan on enforcing them between auditions.

I can think of no better way to relieve my stress than by seducing my neighbor, tall, toned, and delicious Dr. Brad Thorensen.

I only hope I don’t scare away my Nordic god before teaching him how to enjoy my brand of kink.

Even if it means offering myself instead.

Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
How many days since my last confession?

I dreamt about man number two … again. His hands. The sound of his voice. The opposite of penance. The epitome of sin.

I’d become guilty of cheating — only in my imagination — on a man I hadn't even slept with… yet.

And then, there was another man... The good man.

Man number one.

I couldn't get caught up in his smell, or his beard, his paints, his skin. I’d met him at the shelter. I didn't need to pay attention or speak to him…

But I did.

Man one had become my salvation.
Man two was only temptation. A fig. A poisoned apple.

I wouldn't lose God for a snake — a suit who represented the one thing in my life I loved to hate. I wouldn't give up my creed or sobriety for an orgasm.

But maybe I could have a swallow … a taste. One drink.

I know I'm no longer alive, but somehow, I don't feel as though I'm dead.

My submission to his domination.
No strings. No commitments.

But as long as I know the stakes – that what we have is nothing more than a simple arrangement between two broken people, I'll give him what he needs... and we'll both get what we want.

When a mutual friend gives Jonathan Drazen my phone number, I don't know what to expect. Would he be just like all the other wanna-be Doms who've taken more than I consented to give? Would he even know what the hell he was getting into?

But the man I meet is like no man I've ever met before. He's rich, powerful… and broken by a woman he loves more than anyone in the world.

And right now he needs someone to help him come back to himself and discover who he really is underneath the pain he hides so well.

A Dominant. A Sir. My Master…

Until he tires of me and lets me go.
