Raven: I’ve spent my life depending on one person: myself. I’ve learned the hard way that other people will only let me down. I’ve worked for everything I have, but thanks to my drug-addicted mother, I’m about to lose the one thing I’ve craved for years. Needing to make some extra cash, I ask my boss at Restrained Fantasies, a Dallas BDSM club, for some extra shifts. Much to my chagrin, Master Carter Burkes is with him, and he leaps to my rescue, bound and determined to save me – only I’m not the kind of girl who needs to be saved. Carter: I can’t sit by while Raven, a recurring figure in my fantasies, is in trouble. My job as a detective keeps me busy, but I’m not looking for a relationship, just a sub to assist with a class I’m teaching: Reading Your Submissive. Raven always claimed she wasn’t a member of the lifestyle, so imagine my surprise when I discover a budding submissive inside her. She gets under my skin in ways I can’t fight, but emotions are dangerous. I learned that the hard way. Is getting close to her a mistake? Will I destroy her life like I destroyed the life of the only woman I’ve ever loved? This is book two in the Restrained Fantasies series but can be read as a standalone.
