THEIRS TO CHERISH
The newest entry in the Wicked Lovers series continues the BDSM theme and combines it with a suspenseful mystery. There is a bit of repetitious dialogue regarding one of the Doms, but the pacing of the story keeps the action flowing. A master/Dom with insecurity issues is handled with finesse and compassion, and the evolution of his emotional growth is fascinating. Includes bondage and m/f/m.
Callie has worked for (and been in love with) Thorpe for the four years she has been at Dominion. He has watched over her and been her protector — until Sean appears on the scene. Sean’s rapt interest in Callie pings Thorpe’s radar because Callie has been on the run since her family was murdered 10 years ago. She’s been hunted ever since, and they must find out why. Meanwhile, both men want to dominate her but only Sean is willing to declare his love. Callie, however, loves and wants them both. Thorpe’s heart is so wounded that he cannot make a commitment and, as the search for the killers nears an end, he has to make a decision that could break all of their hearts ... or fulfill all of their dreams.
