Young, ambitious theatre director Grace has no time for distractions, but she just cannot resist enigmatic city financier, David. Alluring, charismatic and an incredible lover - David never lets Grace get too close. So when he invites her to a weekend at his private club, Grace is thrilled.
Arriving at the secluded location, and excited by her nerves, David reveals the truth behind the Dining Club: a place where guests are taught to open their minds, and their bodies to erotic challenges. If she passes the tests, she is promised ecstasy beyond her wildest fantasies.
If she fails, she's forbidden to ever set foot in the exclusive club again. But even as David's seductive commands make Grace feel more daring than ever before, she begins to fear for their future. What if she fails one of the Club's tantalizing trials? Will David still want her or will she lose him forever?
Grace has surprised herself by falling hard for the breathtaking financier David. But now she knows that in order to keep this man, she will have to explore his darker side.
Grace is shocked by her body's instinctive response to the private club David has introduced her to: the Dining Club-a secret society where members can explore their most forbidden fantasies. David got her through the Club's exclusive doors-but to stay she must pass a series of erotic trials.
Wrapped in a luxurious dress of chiffon and lace that David gave her for her first challenge, Grace is anxious and excited to enter into the heart of the Dining Club. Little does she know that one of its members, the dazzling and domineering Amber, has every intention of keeping David all to herself...
Grace has had her first taste of the Dining Club...and she's already addicted. Now, as she counts down the days until her next erotic challenge at the Club, she can't stop thinking about David's stamina and the earth-shattering pleasures that await her.
When a stunning red dress arrives from David, Grace feels more ready than ever to meet the Club's next test. But the new challenge that awaits her is more dangerous than decadent-dazzling Club member Amber is more eager than ever to win David's affection, and Grace must do whatever it takes to keep him.
As Grace delves further into the sensual world of the Dining Club, her passion for the devastatingly handsome David grows stronger by the day. By night, their sexual encounters-and the daring new experiences they've shared-both intimidate and excite her.
Though the Dining Club has given her and David the connection they were missing before, she wants David to herself and isn't sure she's brave enough to invite another lover into their bed...or is she?
Eager to continue her sexual journey with the man she's grown to love, Grace prepares to face her third erotic Dining Club challenge. But David seems anything but eager. He's turned cold and controlling, and he's making it nearly impossible for Grace to complete the test.
Enter quiet, handsome Club manager Andrew with his own agenda: he desires Grace for himself and will do anything to seduce her away from David-including revealing David's oldest, darkest secrets...
Grace is starting to question her place in her breathtaking lover David's life. While her erotic challenges at the Dining Club have brought her and David closer together, lately his heated commands feel cold and distant, making her fear she'll lose her membership to the Club, as well as David's attentions.
Luckily for Grace, handsome Club member Andrew reveals a few details that will help her succeed in the next sexual challenge. Unfortunately, he also reveals information about David that makes her question everything she's ever thought about him-and herself. After learning David's secret, does Grace have a chance at a future with him?
Grace has one more erotic challenge to complete. Once she proves to the Club, and to herself, that she's truly embraced her new sensuous desires, Grace will ensure her place in the Dining Club-and in David's heart.
But after learning David's deepest secret, Grace isn't sure what to believe about their relationship anymore. Does he even want her to succeed? She knows this final challenge won't be easy, especially with Club members Amber and Andrew still as determined as ever to see her fail.
Now with this final trial, David will push her stamina to its limits-and Grace must submit her body and soul to his every demand. If Grace doesn't complete the challenge, the Club-and David-will be off-limits to her forever.
Now an official member of the highly exclusive Dining Club, Grace has proven to herself-and to her insatiable lover David-that she has mastered the sexual delights the Club has to offer. As her reward, David reveals the secrets behind the Club's elusive Table Five, and Grace learns their adventure is far from over...
Table Five is only open to the most elite Club members, and it promises to change Grace and David's relationship-for better or for worse. To earn her coveted spot at the table, Grace must confront Amber-the beauty intent on winning David's affection-in a sensual test that only one of them can pass. But Grace's passion for David has never been stronger, and nothing will stop her from securing her place at his side.

Marina Anderson was born in 1945 and was raised mainly in Newcastle, where she has spent the main part of her life. She has always loved writing, only taking it up seriously after her retirement, and the passing of her Mother, at which point she began looking back at her childhood which was anything but uneventful. She has written many poems, and is known locally for her water colors, and has had showings of her work. She is married with two daughters, and two grandchildren. This is the first book she has undertaken.
When I look back on my childhood I am amazed at the challenges I overcame, and the hardships we endured. When Mam passed away the memories of all of this came flooding back, too many to recall off hand so I began to write them down. Before I knew it the book was writing itself, one memory led to another. This has been an emotional journey but one I am thankful for in the end.
