Freddie de Ford is a successful magazine editor, but suffers from impotency until he meets Melanie Matthews. She is intelligent and sweet but also, shockingly, a fighter groupie – a woman turned on by men who fight other men. Freddie is drawn into Melanie’s increasingly perverse and violent world of illegal fighters and women who want them. Freddie will risk everything to satisfy them.
Nicole is angry with Evan, and never wants to see him again. Except this one last time. One last touch before it’s over, forever. Forever, or until the next “one last time,” and the next after that, as Nicole and Evan discover that something between them survives over the decades and the miles. (F/M)
