Recently widowed, Helen Crewe needs a fresh start. A job in the south of France cataloging a private library seems like the perfect change of venue. 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.

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.
