During the day, Adriana’s a lonely corporate heiress, helming a supermarket empire. At night, she hires escorts, scripting provocative fantasies of kidnapping, lust, submission and endless longing. It’s all she has to excite her until she meets Nathan Wynn.
Tall, blond and muscular—like a modern-day Viking—Nathan is a labor relations attorney representing Adriana’s union employees. His imposing presence intensifies her basest desires. When he protects her from an escort he believes is an attacker, she knows he’s wonderfully dominant and unrestrained.
Fascinated by Adriana’s underlying sensuality, Nathan brings her to his secluded mountain estate, determined she submit fully to his hunger. At a gentleman’s club, he makes certain she denies him nothing. Engaging in a seductive sexual journey, Nathan’s caught off-guard by his stunning need for Adriana—and a growing emotional connection she will not let him deny.
Supermarket heiress Adriana Greco has spent many a lonely night. When she meets Nathan Wynn, a lawyer representing her union employees, all her lonely nights may just be over.
After a misunderstanding in the parking garage of her office building, Nathan and Adriana spend the weekend together. Both are lonely and want to enjoy a weekend of play with no strings attached. As they spend their weekend together feelings begin to grow and establish. Will Nathan and Adriana grab a hold of the love within their grasp or will they stay lonely forever, never opening their hearts?
This was a good story about two people in love who must get over their pasts before they can move forward. Adriana is a strong independent woman who takes control of everything in her life while secretly wanting a strong dominant man that will control her sexually. When Nathan saves her from what he thinks is an attacker Adriana knows she has found her man. Nathan is a strong man but he has skeletons in his closet that make it hard for him to embrace another relationship. The bond that develops between these two was a wonderful read. The trust and love that Adriana feels and shows to Nathan was a wonderful gift.
Tina Donahue draws the reader into her world and keeps you entertained all the way to the end. Well-written and fast-paced this is a book that should not be missed. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and will be on the look out for more books from this author.
