Which room holds your dirty desire?
*There are scenes that may be sensitive to some readers. Please be advised*

Seraphine knows what she wants and will do whatever it takes to claim it as hers. Her inability to love has kept her safe from the heartbreak of her past. After inheriting the motel, she built the most successful brothel in the middle of nowhere. Seraphine’s thrives on the dirty secrets and deadly desires that inhabit the darkest part of humanity. Her motel is the perfect place for sinners to sin and saints to repent. She had everything, until one of her possessions was at risk of being lost.

Ivy ran from her past while doubting her future. When she arrived at Seraphine’s, she had nothing she wanted to remember and everything she wanted to forget. She knew what situations to avoid and when her limits were exceeded. Seraphine kept her protected; safe.

Can Seraphine break the walls down surrounding Ivy? Will Ivy succumb to her expected fate?

What neither of them anticipated was a reservation, one that could destroy them all.



Two years ago, Jasper walked into her lobby and introduced himself.

“I need a room,” he spoke with confidence, but Seraphine knew the subtle signs to look for in first timers. Though he tried to calm his breathing, the rapid rise and fall of his chest gave away his nervousness.

“Sure, honey. Name, and what are you looking for?” she asked.

“Jasper. I need a room to take care of two old friends for the night.” The underlying meaning had not gone unnoticed to her.

“There are a few forms to fill out, then I can show you and your friends to your room.”

He busied himself with the forms she handed to him, and she stepped back to watch. His shaggy, charcoal hair, fell into his blue eyes as he feverishly wrote. The veins running under the multitude of tattoos covering his forearms pulsed from the grip he had on the pen. No matter how much he had tried to clean up before he arrived, she saw the specks of blood covering his dark jeans.

“All done. Which way?” Jasper asked, handing her the paperwork.

“Follow me.” She took the room key down and walked out the door, he wasn’t far behind.

The last room on the backside of the motel was the perfect one for him. Windowless, sound proofed, large bathtub, and plenty of space to play.

“Pull around and I’ll help you unload.” She couldn’t lie, guests like these were the ones she looked forward to the most. He did as he was told, backing his car up almost to the door itself. Walking around to the back of the car, her suspicions were confirmed. Tied up and gagged in the trunk, was a man and woman. Both were already bloody and bruised, terrified at what would happen next.

“You get the arms and I’ll get the legs, or I can just hold the door while you drag them in.” She almost preferred the latter. As he grabbed the man’s arms, she grabbed the legs and carried him in, dropping him in the middle of the floor with a loud thump. Silently, they repeated the process with the woman before going back to shut the trunk. She waited inside for Jasper, having already decided she would help, and that he may be worth keeping around for a while.

“The bitch cheated, didn’t she?”
