When I’m With You: Part I
When We Touch
New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery presents Book 2 in the Because You Are Mine series: When I’m With You, a blistering new novel of a man and woman bound by the scandalous secrets of the pastâ€”and by the sexual hunger that still fuels their uncontrollable desiresâ€¦
Restaurateur and self-exiled heir Lucien Lenaultâ€™s first look at the breathtaking young chef trainee for his trendy Chicago restaurant is a shock. Sheâ€™s Elise Martin, daughter of a wealthy French fashion designer. Sheâ€™s also the holder of a secret that could explode his carefully laid plans.
Notorious for her flagrant exhibitionism, and for flouting the respectable faĂ§ade of her aristocratic background, the coquineâ€™s wild streak shocked most people. Not Lucien. He was tempted by it. It was a deliriously punishable offense as far as Lucien was concerned. But taking on Elise is more than a game. Sheâ€™s a catastrophe waiting to happen, an inferno thatâ€™s burned many a lover. Lucien isnâ€™t most men, however, and he wonâ€™t allow her to manipulate him. In order to control the defiant beautyâ€”in order to see her submitâ€”heâ€™s going to have to willingly walk in the flamesâ€¦
When I’m With You: Part II
When You Defy Me
New York Times bestselling author Beth Keryâ€™s addictive new novel continues as Lucien and Elise are bound together by a dangerous desireâ€”and the secret they share.
Eliseâ€™s teasing and impulsiveness have landed her back at the erotic mercy of Lucien, who is determined to teach her disciplineâ€”even if all he wants to do is to give in to the beast within and consume her completely. When he discovers her in a dangerous situation that could have been avoided, he punishes herâ€”and once again tests the limits of his own control. By dominating her, he hopes to teach her the meaning of self-control through total submission. But even though he sets strict rules on himself, he still isnâ€™t entirely prepared for feeling Elise shudder in surrender in his arms.
Lucien challenges her, excites herâ€¦bewilders her to the point of distraction. Does he want her, or doesnâ€™t he? Elise is afraid to reveal to him just how vulnerableâ€”just how naĂŻve she is when it comes to sexual games. None of her typical wiles work on him. And what brought Lucien to Chicago with a new name and new identity? What does it have to do with his industrialist fatherâ€™s disgraceful downfall? Who is Ian Noble, the provocative new stranger in Lucienâ€™s shadow? And why has Lucien taken to following him in the night? For Elise the answers will come soon enough. She has other things to worry about now, such as Lucienâ€™s observance of her foolish behaviorâ€¦and the inevitable consequence to come.

When You Tease Me
New York Times bestselling author Beth Keryâ€™s novel continues as Lucien and Elise embark on an uncontrollable erotic odyssey. But Elise soon discovers that her irresistible man of mystery is far more mysterious than she ever imaginedâ€¦
Out-of-control party girl Elise Martinâ€™s playground was all of Europeâ€”until she came to Chicago to channel her innate creativity and sensual nature into something totally different, yet just as delicious. But she never dreamed that becoming chef at the sleek restaurant Fusion would lead to her back into the territory of her girlhood crushâ€”the irresistible enigma called Lucien. He says heâ€™s going to take her under his hand and heâ€™s even moved her into his luxurious penthouse, where sheâ€™s agreed to submit to his rules. Itâ€™s a prospect that both intimidates and excites Elise. One thing is for certain: while she may have had the power to put every other man in her life in her hip pocket, she canâ€™t control Lucien.
Gorgeous businessman Lucien Savauge, adopted son of an infamous French billionaire, knows how to treat bad girls, but Elise is a temptation that would try even the most disciplined of men. He canâ€™t walk away from herâ€”he wonâ€™tâ€”but kindling their potentially explosive relationship is risky. She knows too much about his intentions with Ian Noble, even if sheâ€™s unaware of just how explosive her knowledge is. And as Elise is quickly learning, if sheâ€™s going to play with fire, sheâ€™s going to have to play by Lucienâ€™s rules.

When I'm Bad
As New York Times bestselling author Beth Keryâ€™s novel continues, Lucien and Eliseâ€™s bond of sensual domination and submission reaches a white-hot levelâ€”one that threatens to burn out of control and take Lucien down with itâ€¦
Lucien knows thereâ€™s no going back nowâ€”Elise is not a woman that a man takes in half measure. Itâ€™s all or nothing. In moving forward to make her hisâ€”completelyâ€”he promises that if she submits sheâ€™ll discover what she craves too. The kind of sharp, imperative edge of pleasure sheâ€™s never truly known before.
But Elise proves to be such a wild, fiery, and sexually fearsome woman that Lucien wonders if she can ever really surrender to him. When she does let loose, Lucien fears that he is the one getting closer to being burned. As the two of them get deeper into a dangerous sexual dance, Lucien canâ€™t help but wonder if the exquisite firestorm that Elise has ignited could expose his secrets, draw him dangerously close to the edge, and leave his future in ashes.

When You Submit
New York Times bestselling author Beth Keryâ€™s novel continues as Lucien and Elise take their relationship a step furtherâ€”one that reveals Lucien to be more a man of mystery that ever before…
Elise feels regret for pushing Lucien over the sensual edge. He is no longer able to deny himself now that heâ€™s taken her, and installs her in his bed for good. At her friend Francescaâ€™s urging, Elise dares something new with Lucienâ€”an attempt at honest communication, and not just about her career plans, but about something more challenging: She wants to submit to him completely.
Lucien is moved by Eliseâ€™s honesty, but must leave for Paris to attend to one of his fatherâ€™s companies. Also troubling for Elise is that Francesca and Ian seem to know everything about Lucien, including his secrets. All but one. Something even Elise doesnâ€™t know. Whatever the cost, Elise is determined to confront Lucien about his past, and why, after all theyâ€™ve been through, is he just as determined to keep her in the dark.

When You Trust Me
New York Times bestselling author Beth Keryâ€™s novel continues as Elise discovers to what extent she is under Lucienâ€™s controlâ€”and just how intoxicating it can be…
Furious, confused, and thousands of miles apart, Elise confronts Lucien about being left in the dark, about his relationship with Francesca and Ian, and about the true nature of his mission in Chicago. But just the sound of Lucienâ€™s sonorous voice is enough to satisfy Elise for now. Even over the phone his skills of command and dominance are as thrilling as his touch. So potent, so demanding, and so irresistible Elise canâ€™t help but listen…and obey.
But the mystery deepens upon Lucienâ€™s return, when Elise overhears him talking to a stranger about matters that confuse and worry her. Lucien does admit one intimate secret that leaves her stunned…not to mention grateful that he’s trusting her more. Elise is still curious, but a decadently romantic night under the stars with Lucien makes her forget everything but her growing love for him. And sheâ€™s only too happy to give Lucien what she promisedâ€”her total submission, body and soul.

Lucien continues to make Eliseâ€™s dreams come true. Heâ€™s given her the priceless gift of trusting in herselfâ€¦of believing in herself. Lucien is starting to fall, but what concerns him most is wondering if his relationship with Elise echoes that of Ian and Francescaâ€”that the woman is the light and the man is the shadow. Casting aside his doubts about his own darkness, he treats Elise to a day and night of pure romantic fantasy.
Feeling more and more secure in her feelings for Lucien, Elise takes a dare and agrees to a game Lucien has arranged. What follows is a challenging, intensely erotic lesson in submission set amidst a decadently delicious feastâ€”an unequalled orgy that electrifies all the senses. But the night ends not as planned as Lucien begins to reveal his past.

But the reality is more soul tearing than Elise imaginedâ€”leaving her with the guilt that she pushed the man she loves too far.
When both Lucien and Ian go to London, Elise is left in self-doubt. Surely Lucien is furious at her for tipping his hand so impetuouslyâ€”it has been his greatest fear since he met her. With a heavy heart, Elise makes a heartrending decision for both of them. But Lucien has one more reveal for Elise, one that could make or break a relationship that has consumed the both of them. One that could change their futures forever.
