"can this marriage be saved?"

Millicent knew that she had let her job run her life and her marriage to the point that it was ruining it. Money is great, but does money keep you warm at night? Does it hold you when you hurt? Does it love you? No it doesn't, so Millicent has to decide if her marriage is important enough to save it; do anything she needs to make it work. She sets up a fantasy vacation for the both of them, to recapture the passion and love that they had shared but let life get between the two of them. So they go to a tropical planet where all your desires and fantasies can come true.

Alex had had enough, trying to live with a woman that is a hellcat, who lets work run their lives, or take over their lives. Their marriage wasn't a healthy one these days; Alex would give anything to have the life they had before work took over Millicent and his marriage. But if Alex let on to his wife what his deep dark fantasies are she would go running, or would she? Can he trust in what he needs and feels to share it with Millicent? Because guess what, Millicent has some fantasies of her own, and if Alex only knew he would be jumping for joy because they share the same dreams and fantasies. Now just to share with each other, hopefully they will before it is too late.

I love this All Wrapped Up series. The story of a bit of sin, a bit of bondage play, oh that just heats up the pages. This story is what a lot of married couples let their lives become. If only they would be more open to what they want, and not let their jobs get in the middle of their marriage like Millicent did with Alex. That is how a lot of marriages end. This story is full of heat, love, erotic lovin' that set the pages and me on "Fire".

Would you give up everything -- money, power, and even your old life -- to save your marriage? Realizing her obsession with her job is destroying her marriage -- and her life -- Million Dollar Millicent, real estate entrepreneur and all around bitch, books a fantasy vacation for herself and her husband Alex on a tropical playground planet. Itís a place where your deepest desires come true -- even if youíre not sure what they are.

Alex has had enough of living with a hellcat who jumps at the sound of a ringing com unit. Theyíve become a dysfunctional pair bond, and he'd give anything to have things the way they were when they were just poor students with no prospects. Worse, if Millicent knew his true fantasies, she'd be running, rather than trying to mend the breach between them.

But Millicent has some hidden fantasies of her own -- and she and Alex arenít as mismatched as they think.
