DARE TO SURRENDER
Feisty's tale of bondage between a brooding artist and his sexy muse is hot enough to melt more than a few icicles. But this enjoyable read suffers slightly from a plot that's thin in spots.
To save her art gallery job, Joy Montgomery tracks down bad-boy artist Ash Hunter and asks him to exhibit his erotic art. When he refuses, Joy can't stop herself from stealing one of his provocative sculptures. Now, every time she gets the courage to tell Ash what she's done, he distracts her with sizzling bondage, spanking and sex.
When Joy finally convinces Ash to show his works, she thinks all of her problems are solved. Then, Ash finds out about her deception and theft. It will take seeing each other again at his exhibition to convince them of their inescapable bonds. (FOREVER, Feb., 352 pp., $6.99)
