Title: The Rental
Author: Rebecca Berto
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: September 22 2014
At first, Rick Delaney watched Vee Wyland with the hungry eyes of a fox as if she were a rabbit … his rabbit. But one day, he slunk away without notice.
Months away from graduating high school, Vee’s life is on the verge of crumbling. At home, dire finances and long hours test her family. Her boyfriend hardly pays attention to her. And she can’t shake her feelings for his older brother, Rick.
Then, all in one night, tragedy tears her teetering life into shreds.
When Rick and Vee reunite, the sparks fly. However, she unwittingly signs away a future for both of them. In his world, a place called The Rental, she becomes Victoria and Rick becomes Rhett. One part of her watches with fascination, while the other unfurls and embraces her sexual awakening. It began as a game, but the consequences are real.
Following their heart’s desire is forbidden, but walking away could strip their hope for a future.
The Rental is an erotic romance that explores how sex isn’t purely physical; sometimes, it’s a gateway to your soul

Announcement from the Author
When I wrote The Rental, the characters came to me like ready-formed people with memories, wants, and feelings. I wasn’t ready to move onto the sequel without more. And so was borne the short prequel: The Masquerade.
This little story, although set years before the kinkiness of the place called The Rental still explores the same topics: love, pain, and sexuality. The tricky part was deciding how to handle a sensitive issue: my main girl is still fifteen when this prequel begins, and my male lead has just turned nineteen. Although nothing illegal occurs between them sexually, I wanted to keep the heat level that the series is about. In the end, I love how I straddled the line closely to explore their relationship and individual wants and needs.
To say the least I am bursting with excitement to share this story with you. I hope you are excited too! It’s going to be a free download, too—yay, who doesn’t love a freebie—so you can start this series at absolutely no risk (well, except for the hazard of your panties melting). And better yet, you can read this prequel before or after The Rental as there are no spoilers. It’s coming in September just before The Rental goes live on the 22nd.
Love and hugs,

Release Date: September 2014
Nineteen-year-old Rick Delaney is at a masquerade party when temptation dangles in front of his eyes in the form of fifteen-year-old Vee Wyland. Not only is she too young for him, but she’s too pure to taint with his wild ways and—worst of all—the crush of his reckless younger brother’s eyes.
Beneath their masks burns a fiery hunger for each other; however, it’s a desire they must quell. Their situations are fraught with risk. But age isn’t the only obstacle. Dark secrets brew between their ongoing game of masquerades. And it might just spell the end before they get a proper beginning.
* This book does not contain underage sex, but it is sexually explicit. It is a short prequel and can be read before or after reading The Rental. *
