Billionaires aren't amongst Mia's favourite clients. She's a bodyguard, and in her experience only the morally defunct alpha males make the big bucks. So when she's assigned to guard Dean Tremaine's luscious body, she doesn't expect to be more than superficially attracted to him. He's getting death threats from disgruntled employees, after all. Why would she find him irresistible?
She might have underestimated how much she wants him, but he's just as used to getting his own way as she expects. And when her main concern is his safety, the last thing she needs is for him to disregard her instructions, or to distract her with his provocative behaviour.
When he holds a business meeting in one of the private rooms of a local fetish club—a club he just happens to own—Mia's ability to concentrate on her job is put to the ultimate test. She's a newbie to the BDSM scene, and the kinky atmosphere of the club is more titillating than she'd ever have guessed. Not only that, but Dean is just as dominant sexually as he is professionally, and despite the death threats and her rejection of his advances, he seems determined to seduce her into submission.
Can Mia persuade the sexy billionaire to keep his hands off her for long enough to protect his life? Or will his reckless pursuit of her affections lead to disaster?
Publisher's Note: This story has been previously released as part of the Bound to the Billionaire anthology by Totally Bound Publishing.
Well aware of her weakness for arrogant, dominant men, Amanda is determined to avoid bad boys. In her blog, Confessions of a Virgin Sex Addict, she encourages women to deny their baser instincts and search for a man with a gentle, artistic spirit.
No one suspects her secret life as the receptionist at the BDSM club, DiscipliNation. It’s the perfect gig, friendly people, cushy hours, and enough pay to put her through school. All she has to do is pretend she is part of the lifestyle.
James, a professional bodyguard, has secretly admired Amanda for months. Night after night, he visits DiscipliNation, in hopes she will leave her receptionist’s desk to play in the great hall. When a stalker threatens to murder her, James offers to step in as Amanda’s protector, and in turn uncovers her secret life.
She isn’t the innocent little subbie. In her own words, she has used anyone and everyone to get what she wants. Is this stalker just a figment of her imagination, another ploy to swindle friends and family? Or is her life really in danger?
Thrust together, they both must fight their bodily desires. Being near James twenty-four hours a day is an unbearable temptation. James knows he can protect Amanda from an attacker, but can he protect her from himself?
Book three in the Mastered series
He can't say he wasn't warned...
From the moment he's cautioned to avoid the submissive who snares his attention, Dom Michael Dayton is intrigued. With her tight dress, flowing hair and honest dialogue, what could be more perfect than a few hours together?
Sydney Wallace fears only one thing—being tied down. She lives for adventure and fun, including the occasional BDSM party. By always scening with different Doms, she avoids emotional entanglements that might complicate her life. A man who owns a ranch and has roots deep into the soil is definitely not the kind of Dom she wants to play with.
Sydney has never met anyone as complex as Master Michael Dayton. From the moment he issues his first command, she knows he's different. He watches her reactions, sees what she wants, and unselfishly gives her what she needs. Getting involved with a man like him would be the biggest risk of her life, crossing over all of lines she's drawn to protect her way of life.
After the first night together, Michael realises he should have heeded the warning. But it may already be too late...
Outstanding Industry Reviews
I really enjoyed Sydney Wallace. She's intelligent, saucy and has just enough baggage to be multi-dimensional. Michael is intense, patient and solid...just what Sydney needs. The pace was brisk enough, and the sex was spicy and molten... ~ Fallen Angel Reviews
Ms. Cartwright has penned another excellent novel here. She skilfully creates believable, flawed characters, ones that the reader cares about and roots for. I very much enjoyed the storyline of Over the Line, as well as the characters, the setting, the incredibly hot sex, the emotion, and the humour thrown in there, too. This was another great addition to the Mastered series. I’d definitely recommend BDSM erotic romance fans to check out these books. ~ Blog Critics
About Sierra Cartwright
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.
