Not all power in D.C. is wielded by politicians…

With fiery exchanges in the workplace, public relations princess, London Chantelle, intrigues and provokes the alpha male in wealthy attorney Carson Drake. He'd like to bend her over his knees—among other things. 

Outside the office, an unexpected meeting at a local BDSM club suggests she is the ideal candidate for a weekend of sensual submissive pleasure. Mistrustful yet fascinated, London agrees to his proposal of forty-eight hours with him. Finally, she can satisfy her unwanted, darker longings. 

Their passionate weekend stuns them both and London wants more of Carson Drake and his firm handling. But their assumptions about love threaten their budding relationship—even more than a blackmailing co-worker and London’s long-buried secrets.

My Thoughts:

London Chantelle is a woman trying to break through that invisible glass ceiling.  On top of everything else, she has family issues that are her responsibility.  Carson Drake is a man that exudes power.  He thinks that he is exactly what London needs.  He seems to be in the right place at the right time when her life seems to be going out of control. 

There’s a point in the story where London has a very personal conversation with Carson and it can get a little tough to read.  Especially if it’s something that has touched you personally.  This is just one example how true to life this story seems to be. 

The author shows that the D/s lifestyle can be a freeing experience.  It’s also a sexually awakening experience.  Physical abuse is not in any way shown to be part of the BDSM lifestyle.  This book also shows to what lengths a club will go to in order to protect the submissive.  There are rules and in breaking those rules there are consequences. 

For me the only disappointment I had was that I wanted to know how London’s brother turned out.  Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this story.  I didn’t find that the BDSM was too graphic but you did know exactly was being done – and it was consensual between London and Carson.  It does give us our HEA but doesn’t lead you into the next book in the series – which by the way is coming out on August 22.  So if you liked this one, I would check out the rest of the books in this series.  I would also be interested to check out Ms. SaFleur’s other work as well.

Author Bio:

Writing erotic romance is the most fun I’ve ever had. (Well, except for the research.)

Many of my books are set in Washington, DC, where I lived and worked many years, running a public relations firm. In my PR career I’ve been fortunate to encounter or represent some of the city’s powerful insiders. I write, tweet and post under my pseudonym, Elizabeth SaFleur, since my clients might be a little shocked at how their counselor spends her free time. Then again, perhaps they’d fear they provided inspiration. (I’ll never tell.)

Today, I live  in Virginia with my husband and furry child. Occasionally I’m separated from my laptop to indulge in dance classes and visit wineries and hiking trails with family and friends. If there were a house fire, I’d grab my dog, laptop and five-foot-long, regulation, Sally Rand ostrich feather fans — in that order. (Hubby knows the way out.)

I’m a member of the Romance Writers of America, Washington Romance Writers, and an ongoing student of fiction writing, as well as avid reader of general fiction and romance, especially the erotic kind.
