A young woman’s quiet life is upended when she meets the man of her forbidden dreams in the startling new novel from New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery. The Affair begins…
The Affair Week One
Innocent yet unconventional hospice nurse Emma Shore has secured a new position at The Breakers, the sprawling mansion of enigmatic and dangerously handsome racecar billionaire Michael Montand. Hired as caretaker for Montand’s stepmother, Emma expects few complications. But one night, lost in the mansion’s maze of corridors, she comes upon a woman and a man she can’t identify engaged in a raw, naked interlude of sexual subjugation. Silently, from the shadows, Emma watches—shocked, appalled, and unnervingly aroused.
But Emma wonders… if this mysterious stranger is not Montand, then who is it? And what other surprises are in store for her? Night after sleepless night, she’s considering the possibilities. And for the first time in her life, she’s not going to run away from them.

If asked why I think my serial novel, THE AFFAIR, is special, one thing immediately pops to mind: romance. Even though THE AFFAIR is a steamy, sexy story, it’s the poignant, tender moments in Montand and Emma’s love story that really stand out for me. Combine that with the breathtaking scenery of a lakeside mansion and a French Riviera villa, and what emerges is a feast for the senses, an indulgent reader fantasy along with a breathtaking journey of a romance unfolding in real time. Certain scenes pop into my mind: Montand and Emma slow dancing on a moonlit terrace overlooking the sea, the private little cocoon they make for themselves on his private beach, a euphoric moment of fate and luck in a Cannes casino. I think many people would assume such a sexy story is devoid of true romance, but in THE AFFAIR, even in the most erotic exchanges, there is a feeling of tenderness and growing love between these two very special people. THE AFFAIR is the ideal example of why I vehemently deny writing erotica. I write erotic romance. For me, an intense, emotional love story is what always stands at the core.
