Bastards & Whiskey
Top Shelf # 1
by Alta Hensley
Released September 16th, 2017



I sit amongst the Presidents, Royalty, the Captains of Industry, and the wealthiest fucks in the world.

We own Spiked Roses—an exclusive, membership only establishment in New Orleans where money or lineage is the only way in. It is for the gentlemen who own everything and never hear the word no.

Sipping on whiskey, smoking cigars, and conducting multi-million dollar deals in our own personal playground of indulgence, there isn’t anything I can’t have… and that includes HER. I can also have HER if I want.

And I want.

*BASTARDS & WHISKEY is a dark billionaire romance. If you don’t like a sprinkle of shock, a dash of taboo, and a heavy dose of sex, then don’t take a sip of this TOP SHELF cocktail.

Bastards and Whiskey is a dark erotic romance and the first in the Top Shelf series by author Alta Hensley.  I enjoy reading dark stories but sometimes they can be repetitious. The plots tend to be similar or follow the same formula, sort of like a cookie cutter storyline.  I love that Bastards and Whiskey is different than anything that I have read.

In this story, Anita Kyle grew up in an old broken-down trailer in a small town in Nevada.  She worked as a caregiver to an elderly woman, Virgie, who happens to be her only friend.  Virgie started to reminisce meeting her late husband and encouraged Anita to move to New Orleans. She gets a job as a cigar sommelier at the Spiked Rose, which happens to be a private gentlemen’s club which caters to the wealthy men and their kinky/taboo desires.

What will happen to Anita when she accepts a request by the head of the mafia family?  Can Kenneth Saxon, one of the founding members of the Spiked Rose, help Anita when she gets in trouble? A captivating and really naughty story and a definite add to your TBR list!
