A kind heart is a dangerous thing to possess in the raw, power hungry, bubbling cauldron known as Silicon Valley.  Beautiful Camille Baptiste has a heart of gold, but she’s no push-over. She is a seductive mixture of strength and vulnerability. She believes a successful life means having the love and support of her two best friends.

Tiara Blake… Vain, ambitious, and possesses an alluring charm that men can’t resist.

Eris Simeon… Born into a life of wealth, but underneath it all, she has a matcher’s heart.

Delmar Devereaux…  Arrogant, and ruthless. He believes he’s irresistible to women. His arrogant mask hides a deeper passion.

Eris’ ambitious matchmaking plans go astray when the matchmaking legend herself, Glenda D’Goodwrench-Jackson, gets into the picture and trips up everyone’s plans.

What could be worse than best friends fighting over who loves you best? And who has your best interest at heart when spell bounding immortal matchmaker's machinations are drawn into the picture?

Brazenly, the Mistress of Desire unleashes a torrent scandal of treachery and deceit that shatters the illusions of happiness for everyone.

Discover, as four lives are intertwined into an ambitious game forged by betrayal and deceit where sex, love, and hate are only the means to an end.

Better know your friends or you might get burned.

Goodreads Reviews

"I won this book through a GoodReads giveaway. What an incredible read!! Loved it and would suggest it to anyone who wants to read a good book!"

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review - not that that would change my opinion of a book - either I like it or I don't, whether it was free or not.

This book was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish and just goes to show that you don't really know who your friends are. I highly recommend this book!!!"

"Jackson has created a raw and fascinating figure in the form of Camille, and she is a powerhouse throughout the novel, tapping into natural confidence and strength that never stops and never ceases to impress. This is a new world we're exploring as readers (or at least in my case) and seeing this sort of up close and personal look at Silicon Valley and the power-hungry, passionate people behind the scenes today was exciting, to say the least. I felt like the pace of the novel was somewhat inconsistent, and there were some areas of the story where tangential plot lines pulled me away from the main thrust of the story, but generally, there was a good flow and a solid rhythm to the writing. Camille's rugged exterior is complemented by her insightful, gifted mind, allowing her to navigate the dangerous waters of professional ambition, love, lust, and power. This is a sexy insight into Silicon Valley in a way that few books have done, and in a way that few authors would be able to achieve. Nicely done on all fronts."
