Description

"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...
