Stefan Talbot let Jennifer Waters run from him once. He knew she was far too young for him, but he kept a watchful eye on her, protecting her from afar. When she’s arrested for a crime she didn’t commit, Stef knows the time has come to get close again.
Jennifer ran from Bliss only to find herself in hot water in Dallas. She’s longed to return to Bliss, but not in handcuffs. The only thing she longs for more than her mountain home is the man she ran from—Stef Talbot.
In the middle of the Winter Festival, Stef and Jen find themselves fighting for their love and their lives because danger has followed them back to Bliss.
Jennifer Waters left the only town that ever felt like home to escape the one man who would forever be the master of her heart. What else was she to do when Stefan Talbot tramples on her declaration of love? Stefan is always in control of everything...or so he believes. All it takes is one not so obedient sub being in the right place at the wrong time to bring his otherwise well-ordered life to its proverbial knees.
In the third edition in the Nights in Bliss series readers are treated to finally getting to know the reclusive and dominant Stefan Talbot. If you’ve ever read Ms. Oaks Siren books you know she has a way with creating the most deliciously dominant men. Her Doms make even the most inexperienced and “vanilla" of us want to dabble in the lifestyle. Be aware though Ms. Oak's Doms accept no “dabblers”.
Stefan is no exception until his heart becomes involved. Ms. Oak slowly unveils the layers of Stef’s life as this incredible story unfolds. We are given intuitive insight into Jennifer’s nomadic childhood as well. Ms. Oak’s ability to draw on the readers emotions and have them fully invested in a story and its characters is only one of the reasons she has a large and ever growing fan base.
Readers first met Stefan and Jen as well as the quirky yet lovable citizens of Bliss, CO in Three to Ride. If we’ve learned anything about this fantastical mountain haven she created we know that when danger lurks the townsfolk ban together. Also, there’s a good chance someone’s going to die. As you can see, this not a fluffy love story with no substance to the plot. Without spoiling a nice surprise, be sure to pay special attention to who all you meet in chapter one. That’s all I can say about that. Except…Read The Book!!
One to Keep is part of a series but it can be read as a stand-alone. If you do happen to read them out order don’t be surprised when you find yourself running back and pick up the other books. Yes, the stories are just that entertaining and engaging. I’ve mentioned it before but it bears repeating, Ms. Oak is more than a writer, she’s a storyteller. Pick up your copy of One to Keep today and you’ll be saying…”So, how do I get to Bliss?”
