Meet Lauren Jameson, my alter ego.

“Tantalizingly sensual and shockingly intense, Jameson’s second In Vino Veritas book combines the erotic and the artistic in a novel packed with steamy tension. Though there are some elements of this genre that are growing increasingly familiar, Jameson does an excellent job making this story feel original and daring, providing a hero whose moments of self-doubt make him increasingly sympathetic and a scarred heroine whose courage can break down any resistance.”

When business mogul Elijah Masterson travels to the Mexican coast for his chain of luxury resorts, he purchases an emerald green glass sculpture for one of the properties. He is soon fascinated by the fiery temptress who created it. The attraction between them is instant and explosive, but Elijah resists, unsure that a woman as strong-willed as Samantha would ever yield in the way he needs her to.
Headstrong glass artist Samantha Collins hides a secret desire to submit to the right man. Samantha sees everything she wants in Elijah but, apart from one steamy night, he seems determined to keep his distance. She has always held back, but refusing to let go now that she’s found the dominant man she’s always wanted, Samantha makes Elijah an offer he can’t refuse: a month of absolute submission.
But after a month of incredible passion, will either of them be able to walk away?

she’s often visited on vacation. Instead, she finds herself consumed by a dark,
mysterious man who sets her ablaze with a simple look.
Devon has always been the good girl, but
Zach’s touch turns her into something primal, especially when he persuades her
to give up control. But while Zach can make her burn, he also runs hot and
cold, seducing Devon one moment and turning her away the next.
When Devon starts her new job at Phyrefly

CEO of the massive corporation. And while Devon knows she should keep things
with Zach strictly professional, his overwhelming magnetism makes it impossible

Given the opportunity to take control, Zach pushes Devon past her breaking
