Book Two of a soapy, sexy, intrigue-laden series set along the Northern California coast.

Welcome back for another sex-drenched episode in the continuing adventures of Wonderland. The drama on Eldon Court escalates as the "Desperate Husbands" fight for their lives and their loves, all while they indulge passions both desired and forbidden.

Rich North and his partner, Marc Anderson, thought moving to Wonderland would be the answer to the problems they ran from in New York. But this beautiful coastal town is not without its own secrets, as the ruthless businessman Danvers Converse threatens to destroy their lives-as well as those of the three other hot couples who lives in the grand Victorian homes that overlook the crashing waves of the Pacific.

But it is the vital, sexy, passionate Parker St. John who seems to represent the biggest threat to the men of Wonderland. With a claim to Eldon Court in his tight jeans, Parker will use his sexy, hot, and hairy body to get what-and who-he wants. As temptations abound and secrets are revealed, heated passions explode until a stunning betrayal occurs, and one man plots his deadly revenge.
