Platinum by Jeffe Kennedy

Althea Grant's Charleston gallery might be suffering from the bad economy, and her artistic aspirations have gone nowhere, but she's doing just fine, thank you. When bad-boy sculptor Steel rides up on his motorcycle looking to rent studio space, his infusion of cash is more than welcome. But his art is raw, visceral, sexual — and completely inappropriate for her pastel world of watercolour landscapes.

Steel, fascinated by Althea's rare albino colouring, sees in her the key to his next piece: a metal satyr designed for bondage games. Moving into her gallery basement is the first step; seducing the cool Southern belle into modelling for him is the second.

As Steel peels away her careful manners and tasteful outfits, Althea begins to realise her life isn't just fine at all — it's as pale and washed-out as the watercolour paintings she's failing to sell. Can she transform her life and accept her most secret desires?

Release Date 25th February 2013

Steel rents Althea's basement to complete a commissioned piece - the complete opposite of Althea, she can't understand her attraction to him but he sucks her in with his dirty talk and sexy looks. He opens her up - sexually and artistically - in a way she never imagined but is exactly what she needs.

First thing I have to get off my chest is that name - Steel? Seriously?

And now onto the good bit. I really enjoyed this, at first I suspected it was going to have the whole misunderstanding thing in it that makes them fall out but then they realise it's a misunderstanding - thankfully it didn't. It was really a sweet story about Steel (snort) helping Althea realise that she doesn't like her life, she's just sort of landed in it, and helping her change herself and her life to make her happy. And if this realisation involves a little bondage? All the better.
