“For me, dominance means feeling in control and out of it at the same time. I avoided that dilemma for eight years. Until I met her.”

It's Sophie Quinn's chance to make a name for herself. Her assignment: interview investor Marc Brayden, descendant of the most notorious sadist in history. Her mistake: falling hopelessly, obsessively in love.
Marc is mind-blowingly sexy, but determined to stay away from Sophie. She brings out powerful dominant urges that are dangerous to them both. But when he loses control, the pleasure is more than either of them can resist.
Sophie shut down her heart after too much betrayal and loss. Now she's thousands of miles from home and under Marc's spell. What is he hiding? Why do his desires torment him? Torn between love and the truth, she resolves to learn everything she can about Marc's cryptic past, even if she risks losing him forever.
“No hesitation, no second guesses. All in. Marc might be dominant, but I’d show him. I wasn’t that easy to break.”
Seduced by Marc’s dark desires and her own stubborn pride, Sophie agrees to a week without limits. No matter what he demands, she’ll keep her word if it kills her. And it might. For Marc, it’s not enough to control her body. He wants to crush her resistance and claim her as his.
If only he didn’t care so much.
To Marc, owning Sophie means destroying her. He refuses to descend into the darkness his family is known for. He’ll protect her from his desires, even if it means shattering her heart and living a lie.
Desperate to discover Marc’s sinful secrets, Sophie searches for the one answer that could save them both.
“I had to have her. I didn’t care about her name, who she was, or who she belonged to. I’d saved her, and now she was mine. For good.”
Former pool shark Drex Cougan brawled his way to the top, proving he’s no loser like his criminal father. Now he owns one of the fastest growing companies in Texas, but his father’s on the loose again, dragging Drex back to the dangerous border town where he grew up. There he rescues a beautiful woman walking down the street wearing nothing but panties and a t-shirt. Only two problems: she’s got a red-hot temper and no memory before three days ago.
Jane Doe must have a past, but nobody’s stepping up to claim her. That makes it way too easy to fall for gorgeous Drex, who shows her the fiery pleasures of being the successful CEO’s submissive. The passion they share is almost enough to convince her she can start over with a new name and a plausible story. But when her old life comes looking for her, it threatens to shatter her perfect world and destroy the only love she's ever known.
“Jane was gone, vanished, ripped out of my life. But she was still mine. And I’d fight to the death for what was mine.”
The past has finally caught up with Jane. She can’t escape it, even if Drex owns her body, heart, and soul. No one will explain what happened to her, or why. Thrown into an unfamiliar world of people she doesn’t recognize, she struggles to move on and forget the man who saved and possessed her.
But the rules have never applied to Drex Cougan. And even if Jane belongs to someone else, nothing is off-limits, and defeat isn’t an option.
