But she was drawn inexplicably to the older man in a way she could not explain. Peter seduces her while playing erotic mind games. His dark past and his need for revenge entangle Angel in a web of deceit and psychological turmoil. Peter asks Angel to help him with his plan to avenge the death of his wife. By punishing the man responsible, only then he can be free of his inner turmoil. She is reluctant at first, but then agrees to the honey trap. However, when she lures Hund into the net, little does she know the attraction she would feel for him. The game is about to take a deadly turn when the two men finally face one another, both wanting the same prize: Angel.

An erotic tale....not just a love story. Fun. Moody. Intense. Nice surprises.
The obsessive behavior has a messiness to it that leads one down a suspenseful path. Almost reminded me of playing the game Clue. The story really could have gone in any direction and since a lot of the story details were fresh and new, it added to the suspense element. It was intriguing how it came together.
Erotic Tale of Love &
An erotic psychological melodrama driven by one man's grief over his lost wife and his quests for new love and old revenge—
Three people collide in a heady mix of lust, mistrust, deceit and yet strange and surprising affections. For Peter, Angel and Hund, the trip to their own personal hells becomes a short, sharp intersecting ride. How can they escape and move toward their own personal heavens when their paths are so intertangled with baggage, plots, traps, fictions and misunderstandings?
Seeking solutions, they challenge, threaten and toy with each other, each making a game board of their lives on a sea of mysterious pools and personal rip tides of emotions, curling them inside themselves on their fateful journeys to and from each other and back again.
And when the two driven men face off to—literally—win the woman they are playing for? They forget she's in the game as well. But she does not. Game on! May everybody win.
