Once she settles into the luxurious living quarters at Les Santons, she’s sure she’ll be able to leave the past behind her. Until she awakens in the night to familiar sounds–a bondage scene being played out in the garden beneath her window between Luc de Prioux and his personal secretary, Branko. In the dark, memories come flooding back. The library Luc inherited with his grandfather’s estate contains dozens of priceless treasures–rare volumes of beautiful engraved erotica. But none are more priceless than Helen herself. Luc knows what he wants, and he’s just the dominant Helen needs in her life. As long as she’s willing to share… Helen’s stay at Les Santons promises to be everything she needs. Until a break-in at the estate makes her wonder what she’s gotten into…

Ms. Oh has outdone herself once more with a fantastic tale set in France. The story revolves around three central characters of diverse backgrounds and a unique blend of Doms and submissives that change at times.

The Wild Rose Press

Tessa Aden has it all…a great job, good friends, and a fantastic boyfriend. She just has one problem, she’s never had an orgasm during sex. When Zac misinterprets an Instant Message from a friend as a complaint about his technique in the bedroom, she’d rather let him walk away than admit her dark desires.

Fearing she wouldn’t understand his dominant nature, Zac Shandler gave up the BDSM lifestyle to be a part of Tessa’s vanilla life. Yet he seems to be losing her anyway. Will Zac put his heart on the line to claim Tessa’s love and finally force her to reveal the secret she keeps?

BDSM is a lifestyle that is based on mutual trust. It is often misunderstood and one that people are at times, ashamed of. That is the case in this story. Tessa needs more but having been considered strange by a previous boyfriend, she is afraid to voice what she wants. Zac, a dom, is afraid to be himself as it has driven off a previous girlfriend and he does not want it to happen again with Tessa.

A Bid For Love 1.99A Bid for Love by Michelle Houston

Phaze Books

Erika had thought that Ryan was out of her life, and that she was over him. When they run into each other at an art action, and he outbids her on a painting of her grandmother’s, she’s willing to do anything to get it from him – including agree to spend 48 hours with him. Her head says at the end of it, she can just walk away. Her heart isn’t so sure.

A Bid For Love is a delightfully deceptive story. Being only 26 pages, I did not expect to read a concise, well written story of love lost and then found again but it showed me that looks are deceiving. The story itself is about a deception that was played by a minor character for her families benefit but that also deceived our heroine. The instrument that brings our main characters together again is a painting by a grandmother. Virginia Gleeson’s paintings were not what one would expect and they were sold off for gambling debts when an uncle deceived his sister and niece and sold them.

Bound By Desire by Missy Lyons

Phaze Books

Denise has always been a strong woman and the men in her life have expected her to be just as demanding and dominating under the covers. Despite a successful career, and graduating at the top of her class in the FBI academy, she never had the same success in love. Her secret desire to feel conquered, and completely ravished in bed, has kept her from finding a man to whom she wants to submit. Then she meets Victor.

Bound By Desire is a very exciting book that contained several stories.

I enjoyed the story of the Brock Hall case that the FBI was working on. It was cute that the new agent, Denise Walden, was able to deduce so much from a simple interview just by body language that other, more experienced agents did not pick up on. I liked how Denise cracked into the”good old boys” club with all the male agents. She showed how tenacious she was and showed her ability to work well with the best of them. There was also a pretty good story of a bomb in a suitcase toward the end of the book. Denise’s powers of deduction were very sharp.

The Reluctant Dom by Tymber Dalton

Lyrical Press

Love hurts…if you’re lucky.

Kaden knows he’s dying, but before he goes, he has one problem he needs to solve – he must ask his oldest friend Seth to take over as his beloved wife’s Dom and Master after his death. Seth has always seen himself as the perpetual screw-up and Kaden as the strong and steady one, so his friend’s request rocks his world.

Now Seth finds himself immersed in a role he’s far from comfortable with: inflicting pain to provide emotional comfort for the woman he’s secretly loved for years. Can he deal with his crushing grief and learn the skills he must master in time to become THE RELUCTANT DOM?

Let me start off by saying the I loved The Reluctant Dom. It gives a true picture of a Master/slave 24/7 relationship. Kudos to Ms. Dalton for all the hours of research she did to accomplish such a real life portrayal. I learned a lot about the art of Japanese bondage and also about flogging and whipping. I never realized that there were so many types of floggers and whips nor moves to maneuver them.

Phaze Books

Professor Alex Johnson is a teacher by day, Dom by evening. Nadia Flemming is his next door neighbor. While she is attracted to the slightly nerdy conservative Brit next door, she is also a bit intimidated.

Alex decides to show Nadia that he isn’t the shy, sweet man she’s always believed him to be, and sends Nadia on a journey of sensual delights that rocks her world.

The Dom Next Door is a delicious story of appearances that can be deceiving. I enjoyed reading about Nadia and Alex and their ideas of what each other was like.

Banning & Dunn’s newest development has ground to a halt thanks to the determined opposition of one woman. In an attempt to save money and time, the developers decide to take matters into their own hands.

When Tessa opens the door to Ty and Chase, she is expecting to help her friend with her marital problems, not get swept off her feet by two of the sexiest men she ever met. One night of passion evolves into a sizzling week long affair.

When reality crushes Tessa’ fantasies, will she be able to get over being deceived?

From a Three Stooges like conversation at the start, a case of mistaken identity evolves into the sizzling seduction of Tessa and a delightful  romp of sex and more sex. Ty and Chase are hands on developers who are very developed and like their hands on Tessa. I have to say that the sex scenes are very detailed and non-stop throughout the entire book. If you like sex where any and every thing goes, you should like this story.
