It isn't easy being an evil genius. Just ask Donovan Grant,
author of the Internet's first foolproof copyright-
protection software. Hollywood adores him, but he's no hero
to the millions who loved downloading free copies of their
favorite TV shows. Insanely rich, or maybe just insane, he
blew his royalties on a private island in the Caribbean
where he pursues his not-so-private obsessions, like
photographing young ladies bound in expensive leather and
posting the results on his no-cost web site, exsx.org.
But when your sexual preference is dominance, nothing less
than world domination will do. With the help of a wide-eyed
apprentice from Glasgow, a ganja-sucking bodyguard, a jaded
hacker, and a surly cheerleader-turned-dominatrix named
Sindie, Grant is getting ready to launch his revenge on
everyone who thinks he's nothing but a one-trick ponyboy
who got lucky.
Like Carroll Farmer, the take-no-prisoners tech reporter
with a few axes to grind, preferably on whomever's tied to
her bed tonight. Sparks (and other implements) fly when her
editor/former flame sends her across the Atlantic to
profile the reclusive Mr. Grant. Carroll is determined to
uncover Donovan's secrets, but events and emotions conspire
to expose a few of her own, resulting in a wild ride
through the dark side of dreams made real.
Dazzling, occasionally depraved and inevitably
breathless, "Once Bitten" reads like a turbocharged duet
between Carl Hiassen and the Marquis de Sade. Award-winning
authors Adrian Hunter and Chelsea Shepard have concocted a
seriously sexy caper that spans the globe in search of nice
vice, twisted truths, cruel love and freedom in restraint.
Fast, fun and funny, "Once Bitten" puts the "bon!" back
into bondage...where it belongs.
