One luxury building holds six penthouse apartments owned by kinky Manhattanites. Their sizzling stories will be told throughout the Penthouse Pleasures series from New York Times bestselling authors Opal Carew, Jayne Rylon, and Avery Aster.

From trailer trash to elite New York City lawyer, Casey Clark has transformed her life. There’s only one change she regrets. The one that left her blazing her trail alone.

Her tough ex-boyfriend Jace West has made a career of protecting people in bad situations, just like he always did for her. When Casey finds something in her new penthouse apartment that could put her in danger, he’s the first one to volunteer to keep her body safe—even if it puts their hearts at risk again.

Jace counts on his partner Ian to chaperone his alone time with Casey. Instead, it seems the guy balances out Jace’s rough edges with a suave sophistication Casey always craved. The combination has the potential to fill the void in her life that money, power, and ambition can’t…if she’s bold enough to take what she wants from each of them.

Venturing into taboo territory, Casey could become the woman Jace has always needed. The kind who’s enough for not just one super sexy man, but two of them.


Taboo is the first book in the Penthouse Pleasures series by Jayne Rylon, Avery Aster, and Opal Carew.  This is a steamy second chance romance involving Casey and Jace, who were high school sweethearts.  They broke up ten years ago when he could not clarify some rumors about his sexual preferences.

Casey Clark is now a successful lawyer and purchased her first penthouse apartment in NYC.  She calls the police after discovering things in her new place and detectives Jace West and his partner Ian arrive.  What will happen when Casey and Jace see each other for the first time in ten years?  How will Ian react to Casey and Jace’s history?

A steamy first book in this exciting new series.  I’m looking forward to the next in the series!
