Eric Castlereagh has darkness in him. His need to dominate and control poisoned his last relationship, so he refuses to let it out again, even though he’s been in love with Catherine Yu pretty much since the moment he saw her.

Cat didn’t realize how much she needed someone to control her, until the first time Eric gave her instructions. She’s a strong, self-assured business owner outside of the bedroom, but maybe inside it, she could be someone different?

Eric might try to hold himself back from Cat, but his longing for her quickly overcomes his defenses. When her parents come to town trying to set her up with another man, he agrees to pretend to be her boyfriend, but the deception quickly turns far too truthful.

And Eric’s heart isn’t the only thing at stake.

Publisher’s Note: This steamy romance contains a theme of power exchange. Even though it is book three in the series, it can be read as a standalone.
