"Exquisitely beautiful, touchingly heart-wrenching, and hedonistic enough to keep your body on fire."--Coffee Time Romance, 5 stars

So Many Possibilities...

The minute Claire walked into his shop, she aroused every protective instinct Evan ever had. She looked so fragile, so lost. He ached to be the one to show her a world she's never dreamed of, to awaken within her the passion she was so ripe to share. It only takes one touch for him to see how open and responsive she is to his dominant side. But the truth test will be whether he can let go at least and finally open his heart...

Wish I could agree with the other comments. The plot is good, but, I found the dominant to be a real knuckle-dragger. For all his emotional torments, it all still comes down to getting her over the knee, and into his bed. I understand the heroine's besottedness, but, she could have done better. All that being said, the heroine's journey was well drawn, and kept me reading.

An endearing, riveting novel of two individuals who for different reasons have lost hope of loving again. Somehow they connect and there's no denying they sizzle together. I loved this novel- it had me turning pages in absolute absorption. The erotic scenes were of the charts! Hot!!!
