And The Underworld attracts London’s darkest characters – the perfect partners in crime.
But when Lady Vivienne Beaumont enters The Underworld, Max’s life becomes more dangerous than he ever thought possible.

Today I am bringing you an excerpt from Anabelle Bryant’s latest book The Den of Iniquity.
She was no fool, not so lost in the moment to neglect consuming passion. Drawing on scarce knowledge and innate instinct she rubbed her tongue against his and he groaned into her, the reaction an exhilarating rush of power. She relaxed in his arms, a pulse of rare courage and heady control coursing through her veins.
He changed too. Sometime during their kiss his posture eased, his tight hold turned into tender embrace and when he stepped back, he took her with him until he sat on the corner of his desk, his legs spread in a vee with her deposited between them.
Still the kiss continued. His hands framed her face to lock her to him. His teeth nipped, tongue rubbed and teased, all to lure her against his body, her breathe high and fast, her weak legs threatening mutiny. A wave of lightheadedness caused her to sway.
At last he pulled back and she used his shoulders for support, her hands set firm atop solid muscle.
Well I don’t know about you but that certainly got my pulse rate up a little.
