Rancher Case Turner is a shibari master who prefers his partners submissive, silent and lush. When he meets an outspoken, curvy lawyer from Austin, he’s wild to capture the colorful creature he calls his butterfly. His cho. Yearning to tie her up nice and tight. And defying the rule of the single men in Bravado that they share desirable women, Case plans to keep Samantha Marlowe all for himself.
Sam has a big, bad aversion to Dominants, so resisting Case’s magnetism seems like a wise idea. Yet Case, who usually binds his women to him in erotic public exhibitions, lures her with sweet-talk and humor. Case becomes the lover Sam told herself she’d never have—kind and tender.
But Case wants to tie up her heart, as well as her body—and she’s ready to bolt. If Case puts his heart on the line as well, Sam might admit there’s no rope stronger than love to tie her down.
Samantha Marlowe is like a fire in Case Turner's blood . One that the sexy Texas rancher can't put out.
From their first confrontation, attorney Sam Marlowe had a suspicion that Case was a Dominant . The plucky redhead is facinated by the his smooth confidence and rugged good looks . But she 's been traumatized by an out of control Master in the past. Uncertain which world she belongs in, Sam doesn't know if she can ever get past her fear. She's not sure if she want's to get back in the game.
Case Turner loves to tie his women down . But he can see that the fiery Sam has had a bad experience in her past. He doesn't like being shot down by a woman. So when Sam emphatically rejects his offer, the smooth operater begins his campain to win her over.
The Bravado way is that single women are usually shared by more than one man. As a rule, Case and his buddy, Joel Winthrope, share their women. But Case is a bad boy who doesn't want to share his treat this time. Not even with his best friend.
A romantic birthday celebration leads to an intense sexual interlude between Sam and Case. Until a drunken Joel shows up eager to join the party. Sam is stunned to discover that the two friends had planned on sharing her. Did she put her faith in yet another man who betrayed her trust?
If you're in the mood for a fun sexy read then this story is definitely for you. The story would have been a little stronger, though, had the author seriously explored adding Joel into the relationship. Why bring the friendship - and their agreement to share a woman - into the storyline, only to have Case do a 180 and change his mind? It just seemed like a total change of character to me. But it's still good. I do love me some scorching hot love scenes and this story has plenty of those. It also left me wanting for Joel's story. I'm really looking forward to that one. So would I recommend this story? You betcha!
