Laren Jenson’s life motto? Some women weren’t meant to be tamed…

With the option of small-town living, a white picket fence, and a Dom husband long since off the table, Laren has one goal in mind: To marry her career so she can pay off her sister’s debt. She’s one deal away from landing a corner office in The Big Apple that will help her reach that goal when Michael Kavanaugh storms into her life. Although she’s tempted, she’s been sidetracked by a man before, and vowed never again.

Michael Kavanaugh’s life motto? Some men were made to tame only one woman…

After years of earning the hard-won nickname “The Reputable Dom”, Michael is ready to throw it all away. He’ll become the opposite of everything that name suggests for a shot at owning the strong-willed business woman who clings to her secrets with an iron-fist. He’s determined to do whatever it takes to unearth her mysteries and make her change her mind about him, even if it means he has to ditch his stellar reputation in order to claim her…by very disreputable means.

She knows he's dangerous for a woman like her.

He knows she's perfect for a man like him.

From their first meeting, David Hollan is intrigued because Lacy Pembrook is subconsciously hiding someone. Herself. And David wants to know why. He's patient at first. Willing to give her space, but when she breaks the rules they've set between them, he's ready to hold her accountable. One way or another, he's going to find the piece of her that's yet to be uncovered. And when he does? He intends to own it.

Given an ultimatum after she gets caught coloring outsides the lines of their "trial" relationship, Lacy decides to fall in with David's plans. She'll cancel her trip and spend her vacation time at his house making up for her transgression. No sweat, right? Wrong. What she doesn't count on is him going full-out Dom on her. She quickly learns why they call him the quiet one. He's dead sexy, watchful and stern at the best of times, and now that he has her all to himself, each of those things are magnified tenfold.

By the time Lacy realizes that he's completely subjugated her--by way of an emotional striptease--it's too late. She's bared her soul to him, so when he requests her surrender she has no choice but to give it to him. Or does she?

*If you want to check out a few of David and Lacy's "pre-story" dates please go to my website and click on "free reads". Otherwise all their dates have be compiled in the prelude to Requested Surrender in A Date With A Dom.

She wants to be friends and he wants to be lovers. She's vanilla and he's a Dom. She's not convinced this will work. He's positive they'll be great together.

A trial relationship it is.

So they make a pact. He agrees to give her the eight "hands-off" date nights she wants, while she agrees to his condition and participates in all the sexting he's after. She's thinking he's a busy guy, so no big whoop. Unfortunately, he's willing to make all kinds of time...for her.

What could go wrong?

This is the hero and heroine in my soon-to-be released BDSM romance, Requested Surrender. David and Lacy's actual story starts off with a bang. So I wanted to show a little fun and sizzle backstory before we get to the chastity belt and saw scene. Oh, yeah. I went there in the first chapter which I've included in this prelude.
