Darren McCorvey can’t believe his good luck when sexy violet-haired Lisa Martinez sits across from him at a table in a restaurant. Never mind she’s only at that table by mistake -- she certainly didn’t intend to join a bunch of BDSM aficionados -- he recognizes a submissive streak inside her that she thought was nothing but a weakness. She can’t believe this hunky guy is interested in her, but the things he’s into attract and scare her all at once. She pretends she’s interested to piss off her controlling ex-husband, and doesn’t intend to let it go any further. And Darren has no intention of falling in love, ever again. But after one fierce kiss it doesn’t seem to matter what they intended, what they’ve feared, or what obstacles their pasts can throw in the way.
Who knew an accidental meeting could lead to something so unforgettable? Certainly not Darren and Lisa. Their introduction is serendipitous. He believes she’s a submissive attending a casual lunch. She believes she’s meeting with associates of her ex-husband’s. When they learn the truth, despite their mutual shock, their sexual chemistry is impossible to deny. Tempted to learn more about the lifestyle, Lisa accepts Darren’s offer to attend a private gathering. Before long, Darren is enamored with a woman who isn’t sure she’s submissive at all, and the chase is on.
Purple Passion is a story readers are sure to enjoy. Darren and Lisa are perfect for each other. He’s intuitive where she’s impulsive. Their dialogue and banter is both sweet and sexy, and some of the pages are so hot you’ll have to fan yourself. When jealousy and venomous ex-spouses and partners threaten to pull them apart, they come closer together. The story is a perfect slow burn, giving the reader just what they need while hinting at future delights.
The writing is tight, the pace is perfect, and the characters are wonderfully developed. The BDSM elements, while present, are not the central focus on the story. Purple Passion is about two people finding what they want most in another person. As Darren and Lisa fall for each other, the reader can’t help but fall for them as well.
Those searching for a hot, passionate, BDSM erotic romance will thoroughly enjoy Purple Passion.
