Sexy and serious world-renowned chef, Joshua Bouviaye, has a secret. He isn’t just a good cook he’s a seasoned badass undercover FBI agent. And after almost twenty years as one of the best in his field, he gets a case that has him twisted in knots and sizzling with desire for a very unattainable woman, Pamela James. If there was one thing Pamela James was superb at it was sex. As an exclusive call girl, let’s just say the woman took the craft to a whole new art form. Now retired and living a completely different life with a rewarding career as an Operations Manager at the local community center, Pamela enjoys her hectic but simple life to the fullest. That is until her past catches up to her and her world is turned upside down. With a sadistic madman on her heels and her new fragile life in the balance, Pamela reluctantly accepts the help of Joshua only to learn he could turn out to be more dangerous to her heart than she was prepared for. Passion and heat racing for dominance alongside a dangerous pursuit of a killer will ultimately bring Joshua and Pamela face to face with an undeniable truth. Love is always best when it’s…Decadent.
Joshua moved intimately close to Pamela. His breath was hot with crackling intensity as he whispered, "I will take you up against this wall if you don't come with me right now."

Her body throbbed with need from his graphic declaration. Slowly, she moved away from him and took a deep breath. She kept her back to him as she held out her hand. When he took, it she allowed him to lead the way.
Her hand was trembling as she tried to unlock her front door. How long had it been since she'd been this aroused? How long had it been since she ached for the feel of a man all over her? Too long, she admitted.
Once they were inside, Pamela suspected that Joshua would pounce immediately. But to his credit, he surprised her by tempering his lust with steely control. As they removed their coats, she noticed that he was watching her. Watching the way her body moved. Watching the way she eyed him cautiously.
Finally he asked, "Am I making you nervous?"
Her shoulders slumped and she turned away from him. "I don't know why. It's not like I haven't done this before."
Suddenly, his arms came around her and closed her in tight. "You haven't. Pamela, this isn't a business transaction. It's you and me. Open, exposed, vulnerable, wanting, need. You don't think I'm not intimidated?"
She turned and looked up at him perplexed.
"With every caress of my hands, with every touch of my lips, somewhere in the back of my mind I'll be wondering if you understand, can you feel, will you know just how much you mean to me."
