her, Stephanie is about to step off the precipice into an
agreement that will change her life forever. She discovers
that nothing could have prepared her for her role as

is a stunningly mesmerizing story, luring you down a
somewhat familiar path until uncertainty sets in to keep you
reading. It is an energetically erotic fantasy involving
an older woman caught in a web of desperation and desire,
surrounded by powerful younger men who redefine mastery,
possession, and passion. Kimberly Zant’s gift for exploring
and revealing the sensually sinister avenues of the modern
female psyche is unparalleled. Her photographic writing
style is artistically brilliant, yet she doesn’t neglect the
emotional and mental aspects of the developing relationships
between her characters. The plot is constructed from the
foundation of their motivations and expands into daily
routine; a slice-of-life pragmatism that counters the
fantasy side with large doses of realism. And yes, in the
end, our heroine does just fine all around without the
unjust “scarlet woman” misnomer. Say what you will, it
works, and it’s effective in the narrative.
I’m the first to
admit that this author never fails to surprise me. The best
part about the surprise factor is her willingness to venture
beyond the limits of the genre. Submission is
as perfectly executed as the gorgeously illustrated cover.
I plan to continue reading this author’s excellent work, and
if you haven’t yet sampled her books, then I strongly
suggest that you dive right into one of her collections.
Once you start, one story won’t satisfy your new fix.
