She sacrificed everything to keep him safe…
Five years ago, con artist Lisa Smith broke the first rule of hustling when she fell in love with—and married—her mark, billionaire Sawyer Hayes. The erotic nights spent acting out her darkest fantasies with her husband and Master were the happiest of her life. But when her ruthless father demanded she kill him and take his money, she had no choice but to disappear without a trace…or lose him forever.
He’ll risk everything to have her again…
Now Sawyer has found her, and he has an indecent proposal: submit to him for seven nights and he’ll grant her the divorce she desires. Forced to pretend she no longer loves him, each night spent in his arms is exquisite torture as they reignite their intense passion through role play and ménage. But when a deranged killer out for revenge targets Lisa, she must finally trust Sawyer with the secrets of her past…or neither of them will live to see the future.

EDITORIAL REVIEWS FOR THE BEDICTION SERIES
About the White Collared serial (Benediction #1)
"If you love romantic suspense novels and like your stories with a little edge to them on the passion side, you will want to check out WHITE COLLARED PART ONE: MERCY. Think of it as a cross between a thriller like Gone Girl and one of the hugely popular BDSM billionaire stories like the Fifty Shades of Gray or the Crossfire Trilogies."
~ The Romance Reviews
“WHITE COLLARED, Shelly Bell’s pulsating four-part series of erotic suspense, is a boost to maintain this sub-genre that shot to popularity in the nineteen eighties with the success of, among others, BLUE VELVET and FATAL ATTRACTION.”
~ The Big Thrill (International Thriller Writers magazine)
About Red Handed (Benediction #2)
"Now that is a good suspense thriller. I have fallen in love with this author and Benediction."
~The Jeep Diva
"It was awesome, hot, erotic, surprising, suspenseful, and I was totally obsessed until the end!"
~Crazy Four Books
"The author throws more plot twists on the unsuspecting reader and keeps building the stakes, along with extremely steamy scenes that are not to be forgotten."
About Blue Blooded (Benediction #3)
"This is a bona fide page-turner laced with political intrigue, thrilling action and steamy sex scenes. The main characters' chemistry sizzles as they search for the truth behind a gruesome murder and encounter a plot with deadly consequences."
~RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars Top Pick
"Shelly Bell gives us dirty politicians, intense sexual desires, suspense that will leave you on the edge of your seat, and romance that will leave you breathless."~Harlequin Junkie, 5 Star Top Pick
A sucker for a happy ending, Shelly Bell writes sensual romance often with a bit of kink and action-filled erotic thrillers with high-emotional stakes for her alpha heroes and kick-ass heroines.
She began writing upon the insistence of her husband who dragged her to the store and bought her a laptop. When she’s not working her day job, taking care of her family, or writing, you’ll find her reading the latest smutty romance.
Shelly Bell writes the Benediction series for Avon Red Impulse and the forthcoming Forbidden Lovers series for Grand Central Forever.
