I never expected forever when I married Lucas all those years ago. It was a dare, encouraged by one too many vodka shots. It’s surprising neither of us annulled the marriage. But the truth is, I can’t be a wife, not to any man, not even to sweet, wonderful Lucas, thanks to the monsters of my past that still haunt me to this day.
By some miracle, when I was desperate to save my brother, Lucas reappeared in my life. Lucas, who’d helped me so many times in the six months I’d shared his home as a sixteen-year-old foster kid. I had little choice but to take his offer – move to his Wyoming ranch and be his wife, for real this time. He doesn’t know the reason why I need the money, and it’s a secret I can’t tell.
Running into Melody in an Iowa bar seemed like fate. And when I heard she was in trouble, I had to help her, because I’ve always felt protective over her. In my heart, she’s always been mine.
Now that she’s with me at Devil Creek Ranch, I find it impossible to ignore the feelings I’ve carried for her since I was seventeen. I want a wife, a partner in life as well as in my bed, but I know she is hiding something from me. Something I fear may drive us apart in the end.
NOTE FROM THE DOM, LOGAN THORNDIKE: Poor sorority pledge, Addison Montgomery, lands in a world of trouble and heat when she’s caught chucking eggs at my father’s mansion on Halloween at the demand of her sisters. When the little devil accepts a trip over my knee as her punishment, we get swept up in the delicious power exchange and a tumultuous squall of passion. But, given our limited experience, diving into untested lusts may be way too hot for us to handle … especially where more than hearts can be broken. Besides, I’m doing all I can to keep my dark side and hellish childhood from rising up to strangle me, and a girl like Addison Montgomery, so compliant, so wet, so eager to please is…God, she is the very last thing I need! She’s both my dream come true and my absolute, worst nightmare.
Just so you know, I do debased things to her mind and body, I’m wicked like that, but I’m not dishing out those yummy treats in a blurb. What kind of Dom would I be if I went around spoiling surprises? If you’re at least 18 and pink gets you flowing, go slip into your loosest pajamas. That’s not an order, those only go to my sub, but it’s a recommendation I strongly suggest.
