Grey weaves a stunning erotic tale with the third in her Art of Passion contemporary series (after Seven Nights to Surrender and Eight Ways to Ecstasy). Lexie Bellamy is the consummate type A workaholic, determined to prove herself in her family’s business. Dane Huntley, her hotter-than-hell assistant, wants to be a firefighter, but after his brother died in the same line of work, he’s not willing to risk himself and make his mother fear losing her other son. When Lexie decides to acquire a Spanish business for her family’s empire, she and Dane go on an extended business trip to Europe, where Dane begins to teach Lexie the art of submission. In giving away her power, she starts to find a deeper meaning in her life—but then Dane faces a life-changing decision, and suddenly Lexie isn’t sure her bravery will be enough to keep them together. Grey’s snappy prose, deft plotting, and talent for creating powerfully real characters will have readers begging for more. Forget Fifty Shades; this is the only Grey romance readers need this winter. Agent: Mandy Hubbard, D4EO. (Feb.)
