Betrayed and completely exposed, she’d sworn off kink. Hell, she’d sworn off men. But she hadn’t counted on him… One of the hottest voices in Sci-Fi, Angus Domhnull is renowned not just for his sweeping sagas, but for his stupidly gorgeous looks—and the fact that he’s taken almost five years to finish his latest novel. Now, assistant editor, Eliza Burrows, is stuck minding him, and his brooding nature is pushing every sexually submissive button she has. But even if Angus wasn’t her publisher’s star author, he’d be off-limits—after a painful betrayal, Eliza doesn’t play anymore, and she’s not about to start again with him. Unable to deliver his long-awaited manuscript, Angus is saddled with a keeper—and her creative input—that he never asked for. Despite the resentment and animosity brewing between them, he finds himself drawn to Eliza. As he learns more about the intriguing woman behind the prickly facade, he falls for her, hard and deep. When the attraction between them ignites, Eliza lets Angus bring her to one place she swore she’d never go again—her knees. He wants more than just her submission, but her past and the secrets she’s hidden could destroy everything...
The seventh Bound BSDM-themed erotic romance (after Safeword Protected), continuing a series that Green cowrites with Jessica Jarman, is a gut-wrenching tale of love and redemption between two damaged souls who manage to make each other whole. Reserved assistant editor Eliza Burrows is assigned to mind bestselling yet moody sci-fi writer Angus Domhnull, whose books kept her going during a very dark period in her life. While grappling with writer’s block and the pressures of fame, Angus quickly begins to be intrigued by, and then attracted to, the emotionally fragile Eliza. What Angus doesn’t know at first is that Eliza’s fragility is directly related to her mistreatment by sadistic, abusive jerk Nigel, an old schoolmate of his. When he finds out, he’s determined to make Nigel pay—and to help Eliza rediscover the joys of sexual submission, which she swore off after Nigel’s betrayal. Green masterfully illustrates Eliza’s deep, unwarranted shame and heartbreakingly portrays the unforgivable but common sneering often doled out to sexual assault victims. Angus, a gruff hero with a heart of gold, will ensnare readers. Blistering explicit sex peppers this tale, but it’s the emotion that will stick with readers long after the final page is turned.
