What is an international banker doing on an exotic island dancing with a barely clothed Adonis? That is the question Persephone Landers asks herself while vacationing on a Pacific island called Surapay. Convinced she is content with the life of a bookworm, Persephone is not prepared for the adventure that awaits her in the form of Prince Jairan Toko-pele Menoa Rivington. His bronze good looks and his masterful demeanor is more than she bargained for.

Persephone considers herself a modern woman despite her wall flower life. So, how can she be attracted to this medieval throw-back who picked her out of all the other women present to perform with him the ritualistic dance called the Lu-atey?

Prince Jay was raised in the land of his mother, thereby sharing her beliefs and customs. It is during the sacred Lu-atey in which his lifemate will be revealed. Just as Jay's father found the love of his life. So convinced that Persephone is his lifemate, Prince Jay is willing to follow her across the ocean. What he discovers is not what he imagined. In the attempt to teach Persephone a lesson, Jay learns one of his own. When it comes to true love can there be a master and slave or do the two mesh into one?BR>

Dance of Submission moves fast and smoothly. I couldn't put it down. I was caught up in the lives of Persephone and Prince Jay. As the title suggests, this book includes the BDSM lifestyle. But that is not what the book is about. Instead, it is a story of two people on a journey of self-discovery and trust of the most intimate kind. This is not a book to skim through. It would be a shame to miss each phase of the characters growth and the blossoming relationship between the two. This reviewer recommends Dance of Submission, for the reader whom enjoys and respects a tale of the wonder of love. A love that breaks the mold.
