But she hasn’t counted on Kennedy’s determination to claim her and prove that love is worth any risk.

Sierra Cartwright was born in Manchester, England and raised in Colorado. Moving to the United States was nothing like her young imagination had concocted. She expected to see cowboys everywhere, and a covered wagon or two would have been really nice!
Now she writes novels as untamed as the Rockies, while spending a fair amount of time in Texas...where, it turns out, the Texas Rangers law officers don't ride horses to roundup the bad guys, or have six-shooters strapped to their sexy thighs as she expected. And she's yet to see a poster that says Wanted: Dead or Alive. (Can you tell she has a vivid imagination?)
Sierra wrote her first book at age nine, a fanfic episode of Star Trek when she was fifteen, and she completed her first romance novel at nineteen. She actually kissed William Shatner (Captain Kirk) on the cheek once, and she says that's her biggest claim to fame. Her adventure through the turmoil of trust has taught her that love is the greatest gift. Like her image of the Old West, her writing is untamed, and nothing is off-limits.
She invites you to take a walk on the wild side...but only if you dare.

Laura can only find the excitement she so desperately craves between the covers of the latest BDSM novel she reads alone in their bed. Then one night Nick, her loving, cater-to-her-every-whim, vanilla sex husband discovers her hidden library. To her everlasting surprise, he decides their anniversary getaway is the perfect time to turn her fantasies into reality.
Before he can put his plan into action, Nick must figure out how to tell his wife she’s actually married to a Dom. More than that, Nick is also part owner of DiscipliNation, a successful chain of kink clubs and an erotic toy manufacturing company. Can he dominate his lovely ‘ballbreaker of the boardroom’ wife—while keeping his balls intact?
Laura’s treacherous body revels in Nick’s domination. As a natural submissive, she thrives under his strict, unyielding command. He trains her to respond to his every touch and the line between pain and pleasure blurs— so much pleasure, she’s lost in it. Laura craves his firm hand, yet his sin of omission shakes her trust. She willingly offers her body, but guards her heart. Quickly, she learns Master Nick isn’t just a hotter-than-hell, leather clad, flogger wielding alter ego. Dom isn’t a role he slips on like a mask. It runs in his blood, defines his personality and once unleashed, there’s no going back. Master Nick won’t play at D/s. The gift of her body isn’t enough. He demands her total submission.
Back in college, it wasn’t love at first sight. Though Eva Anderson was attracted to the sexy, confident Giovanni Parma, she didn’t trust anyone easily. Gio patiently worked past her every defense. He wooed his way into her heart and her pants. Then, the next morning, he was gone.
Gio knew early on he was a kinky SOB. It was just his luck to fall in love with a straight-laced, vanilla kind of girl. He tried hard to curb his baser instincts—she deserved a romantic, gentle man—but he just couldn’t do it. He knew if he stayed, he’d lead her down his own dark path.
When a chance meeting thrusts them together again, neither can deny the instant and intense magnetism sparking between them. A little older and wiser, Eva decides to explore her sexual fantasies with the ex love of her life. His untamed, no-holds-barred manner of sex wins Gio a place in her bed, but she refuses to let him anywhere near her heart.
Gio must prove he’s worthy of a second chance both in and out of the bedroom.

He’s about to find out just how decadent a little complication, complete with silk and spankings, can be.

Once she is his captive, Jack becomes even more relentless, and she fights her response as hard as she fights him. He is doubly determined to fulfil her deepest, darkest sensual fantasies, make her his woman in every way and claim her, body and soul.
Sinead can deal with everything he gives her. But she hadn’t counted on falling in love with the detested lord of the manor.
