How far past the line of consent will he take her to keep her safe?
Dan Westbury knows that a good Dom has a great responsibility for the care of his submissives. But for this undercover agent there is nothing in his current assignment that is “safe, sane, & consensual.” As the women kneeling before him look up with terrified eyes, he wonders if they’ll ever be able to forgive him for what he’s had to do, or if his actions will haunt them for the rest of their lives.
Laura Hurst is a childhood friend and the only light in his tortured existence. She longs for a relationship with Dan, but when he offers none, she contents herself with fantasies of strong men who take control. Little does she know that her worst fantasies are about to become reality, and include a cell, harsh punishments, and an auction where she is sold to the highest bidder.
Because when a dangerous rival tries to distract Dan, his secret comes crashing into Laura’s life. Now Laura and Dan must keep his secret together and play their parts, knowing that revealing the truth before the end of this deception would have terrible consequences for them all. And as they move deeper into their roles, they experience a growing attraction to each other that forces them to confront their own dark desires and blurs the line between consent and coercion.
This book is a romance, but sometimes the path to happily ever after can lead to dark places along the way. Please don’t buy it if you are turned off by reluctant D/s, corporal punishments, anal sex, or permanent markings. However, if those things fascinate you, this is a book to satisfy that secret place in your mind where the shadows linger no matter how bright the lights.
Dan is a Dom and an undercover cop, posing as a slave trainer. He’s just found out that his best friend Laura has been taken as one of the slaves and he is trying to find the best way to tell her he can’t let her go yet.
“Laura, you have no idea how bad this is going to get. I’m going to have to punish you harder than I would punish the others, to prove that I’m not affected by your presence here.”
The tangle of knots in her stomach tightened so hard they threatened to cut off her breathing. Though she’d realized before she ran that he wasn’t going to be able to help her, hearing him say the words crushed the small hope she’d still carried. He could give her no comforting answer. No solution that would see her safely at home soon. She had no choice but to remain here, and she wept silently as she struggled with the words she needed to say, that he needed to hear.
“If I have to stay,” her voice was anguished, “then I want you—I need you—to do whatever it takes to get through this, and I don’t want you to feel guilty about it later. If you have to hurt me, do it. Just get us home safe, please.” She had to get that out, no matter how terrified she was, before the band of fear squeezing her chest prevented her from saying anything at all. She couldn’t put any more burden on him than he already bore.
“Laura, you have no idea–”
“It doesn’t matter. I’m giving you consent.”
There was silence for so long she wondered if he’d left and she hadn’t heard him walk away.
When he finally spoke, it was barely above a whisper.
“Laura, I love you and if we get out of here, I want to spend the rest of my life showing you how precious you are.”
