Rowan Cassidy prefers to be in charge of her sex life. As a mistress at the most exclusive bondage, S&M club on the West Coast, Club Prive, Rowan can safely indulge her dominant nature with a variety of submissives. Lately, even with the temptation of her favorite subs she is feeling somewhat restless. That is, until the night Christian Thorne,a new dominant, walks into the club and shakes the foundation of Rowan’s self-image. She can’t stop thinking about him, imagining his touch, his taste and, most unsettling of all, the feel of his hands binding her body and soul.
Christian has returned home to the U.S in the hopes of shedding his malaise and finds the muse he has been looking for. He sees in her the perfect submissive and he longs to be her master. So he makes her an irresistible proposition: be his sub for thirty days. For Rowan the offer is terrifying but tantalizing. Relinquishing her power and giving herself to Christian is a path fraught with cruel memories and may be more than she can handle. But it could be the realization of her hidden dreams.
