Nadja, a voluptuous woman with charming simple beauty, just wants her library – her sanctuary away from home – to remain the familiar place she grew up knowing and loving. But when she sees all the technological changes coming, will it be the same place for her? She feels threatened by Jack’s plans to install a computerized check out system, but is intrigued by his air of command and self-assured confidence.
The two can’t deny their chemistry, even though they’re both from different worlds and want different things, but as they begin to date, more and more obstacles seem to spring up.
Larry Billings dated Nadja for a while in the past, and his interest in her has never waned. He wants to rekindle the flame, but now Jack, a suspicious city boy, is in his way. What lengths will Larry go to, to claim what he thinks is his?
As for Jack and Nadja; will his dark secrets from the past drive her away? And how will she react when he offers to introduce her to the BDSM toy box under his bed?
Enduring Love by Sage Delouise
Crystal Tremblay has never loved a man the way she loves Nick Andris. She has given him her heart, her body, and pinned her hopes for the future on him. He is perfect for her, except for one thing. His family’s traditions include men disciplining their women. When she meets his parents, they adore her and assume she will soon be their daughter-in-law. It is everything she hoped for until she hears Nick’s father disciplining his mother.
In her career as a powerful prosecuting attorney, Crystal has won convictions for some of the most dangerous criminals in the country. She is used to being threatened, and after a recent victory which resulted in sentencing a gang member to prison, she knows someone is stalking her.
Having rarely lost an argument in court, she believes she can change Nick’s mind regarding the spanking issue. She learns the hard way, by finding herself being soundly spanked over Nick’s knee, that he is the one person with whom she cannot win a disagreement. She is forced to ask herself the painful question: will she have to leave this man she wants to spend her life with so she can stick to her principles? When he applies his form of discipline to her behind, she breaks up with him.
Trying to catch her stalker on her own, she ends up trapped in a hotel room with the ruthless gang she recently prosecuted and learns the difference between discipline and cruelty.
