“When Hotaru Tachibana storms into a host club to avenge the honour of a wronged female student, the last thing Hotaru expects is to duel the club’s most popular host with airsoft guns instead of fists. When Masamune Matsuoka’s experience wins out over Tachibana’s brawn, he realises that he can use his victory (and the large bill for damaging the club) to make Tachibana join his struggling Survival Gaming team. However, what ladies’ man Masamune totally misses is that his unwilling new guy… isn’t a guy at all! Under the boy’s clothing and strong need to defend justice, Tachibana is all-girl, but, for a number of complicated reasons, she absolutely CAN’T expose that fact to Masamune or his teammate, the erotic manga artist Toru Yukimura. Blood will boil both on and off the airsoft arena, but it’s not over until the last round is shot!” Contains the series on Blu-Ray with both the English dub and the original Japanese track with English subtitles. Episodes: Episodes 1-12 + 1 special

New York Times best-selling author Nicole Edwards' scorching-hot Club Destiny series continues with these two sinfully sensual tales of romance that’s too hot to handle. Conviction Samantha Kielty only thought she knew who she was and what she was made of. Until she was offered a position that would take her from her small office in San Antonio to that of her company's larger, more upscale headquarters in Dallas, Sam hadn't seen anything. Her new boss was not only intensely sexy, he was also about to show her things she had only read in books. Logan McCoy's life was steady going until he set his sights on his new vice president of project operations. The woman made his blood boil and made him want things he hadn’t realized he was in search of. Logan only hoped that Samantha was capable of handling his dominating, controlling ways...especially between the sheets or in the shower. When Logan and Sam get together, sparks fly, and they bring out each other's deepest, darkest desires. He will push Sam past her sexual boundaries, and she will bring out his need to possess her in every way. But can they find love within the inferno that burns between them? Addicted Samantha still vividly remembers those nights so long ago when Logan introduced her to the ecstasy of a ménage. Now that Logan's brother has up and fallen in love, Sam wonders whether she’ll ever get the chance to do it all over again. Logan knows his wife fantasizes about another threesome and longs to give her everything she wants. Since his twin brother, Luke, is no longer a part of their relationship, Logan has to seek out the man who can complete Sam's every desire. Warning!
