This riveting tale of complex relationships takes readers from California's BDSM clubs to private playrooms where they discover an alternate lifestyle of pleasure and pain. Bradley's well-crafted descriptions help you to visualize the edgy and erotic scenes. The protagonists go through intense psychological struggles, running the gamut of emotions from anger to fear to arousal to love. Strong characters surround the main couple, and a deftly handled subplot rounds out this amazing novel.
Rowan is a mistress at a bondage club. She's been damaged by a previous lover and hides some dark secrets. Vowing never to be hurt again, she keeps her emotions under tight control. But when Christian meets her at the club, he senses another side of her -- one that will surrender to his domination -- and he challenges her to give him 30 days to bring out her submissive side. Soon Rowan is fighting an inner battle over conflicting desires. The relationship challenges her idea of who she is and what she's capable of. (BANTAM, Jun., 320 pp., $13.00)
