Nantus throws in a wealth of familial problems to complicate the personal ones in this compelling novel. She develops vivid personalities with complex problems, which she deftly solves. BDSM elements add to the titillating romance. This is a stand-alone with no cliffhanger, but another book will follow.

Domme Veronica Locksley has been banned from every other sex club in town for being abusive to her subs. Her current club manager gives her one last opportunity to redeem herself by going to Hooded Pleasures. It’s an organization catering to those who will not seek their pleasure in public clubs for personal reasons. Veronica is to reverse rolls and become a sub for six two-hour visits. HP chooses Oliver Greenwood for the task after some initial protests. He visits Veronica to establish their ground rules, and she tries to turn the tables. Oliver immediately realizes she’s a natural sub, not the Domme she proclaims. He’s surprised that he invites her to have the sessions at his home. Their meetings have a rough beginning, then both discover they have lessons to learn. (SAMHAIN, Apr., 256 pp., $15.99)
