His rough touch makes her lose control…

In Sundance, Wyoming, you can’t throw a boot without hitting a McKay cowboy, so Ben McKay is used to fading into the background. Except on weekends, when he’s Bennett, imposing Dom at The Rawhide Club, surrounded by a bevy of female subs eager for the attention of his long…whip.

As for the curvy brunette eying him from across the room? He’ll eat his Stetson if she’s the experienced Domme she claims to be. Bennett offers her a deal—he’ll let her call the shots for one night. But the next night he gets to prove to her how freeing it’ll be when he takes the reins.

Ainsley Hamilton is amazed by how well Bennett read her every secret yearning during that one explosive weekend—and she’s stunned when they come face to face in their everyday lives as rancher and new bank president. Now Ben’s urging her to explore her submissive side outside the club, and there’s something in his commanding gaze that makes it too easy to let him take control—of her desires and her pleasure.

Can Ben help Ainsley overcome her fear that a relationship built on dark sexual appetites won’t survive the light of day?



Selene’s Review:


Bennett McKay.

Confident dominant and seriously, seriously sexy man.

I was absolutely floored by how much I loved this book! Ben is easily one of the better protagonists in this series from Lorelei James – definitely not someone you would soon forget.

Having been the middle child in his family and one of the quiet ones among the mass of McKay men, Ben felt invisible for most of his life. He’s dependable, hard-working, and sees to others’ needs before his own… which is great for one Miss Ainsley Hamilton.

Ainsley, a.k.a. Angel, I have to admit was not one of my favorite heroines in the series, but I did love that she was incredibly smart and willing to uncover a different side to herself and experience something she’d always wanted. The angst between them was only shadowed by the swelteringly HOT sex they had! WOOOO EEEE!!!! Ben never disappointed in (and out) the bedroom and I sure am glad for that.

This was definitely one of those stories with a happy ending, but both bad and good circumstances happened along the way, rounding out this chronicle as interesting and realistic. The shock about new character Gavin Daniels was fantastic! And James really does well with transitioning from book to book.

This is definitely one I will be reading again in the near future!!!

From author website:

A bit about me: When I’m not squirreled away behind my laptop writing fun, sexy, contemporary erotic romances set in the modern day Wild West, I can be found reading everything under the sun, practicing yoga until I’m a pretzel, shootin’ my .22, watching the Professional Bull Riders tour on Versus, and running a kid’s taxi service, all in the guise of avoiding housework and rustlin’ up vittles.

Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
