For JD Walker, owner of the infamous fetish club Devil’s Playground, life is good. His club is successful, he has plenty of money and spends his time indulging in his lifelong addiction; sex. But despite his current success he is still haunted by a dark and violent past marred by the death of his mother, a death he blames himself for.
Two years ago reporter Molly Malone was part of a news team sure they could prove the Playground was more than a strip club, and was in fact a high end brothel where people paid to have their sickest fantasies fulfilled. But Malone and her partners underestimated JD Walkers powerful connections and the expose blew up in their faces, ending in a libel suit that cost all but Molly their jobs.
Now JD faces a far more serious threat in the form of Reverend Zachary Knox, a fire and brimstone preacher who has sworn to close dens of iniquity like the Playground. Knox’s protesters are scaring away Walker's clients and his employees and to JD’s dismay the Reverend has as many connections as he does.
Molly Malone wouldn’t mind seeing JD go down, but not in this case as she has a personal vendetta against Knox. Back in Alabama where Molly grew up Knox and his corrupt ministry was responsible for the darkest event in her life, one that has left her scarred emotionally and craving dark perversions, the kind JD has made his living on.
Up until now JD and Molly had nothing in common, but a mutual loathing for each other. But both have reasons to bring down Knox and are willing to dance with any devil that gives them a chance, including each other.
