The first time Sean Bates sees Alessa Alexander at a lifestyle club without one of her friends attending with her, he doesn't approach her or interfere, deeming it's none of his business. The second time, his protective, dominant instincts force him to confront her, and then offer his professional counseling for her needs.
Alessa's desire to turn herself over to a man's full control always kept her from believing she'd ever enjoy a long-term relationship like her friends recently committed to. When she gets up the nerve to ask Sean Bates to tutor her in her unorthodox fantasies, the first scene he devises leaves her aching for more of his strict control, but worried about keeping her feelings uninvolved.Past heartbreaks keep Sean and Alessa leery of hoping for too much from their agreed upon temporary relationship.
Between escalating problems with an ex at work and her insecurities, Alessa runs from Sean before she ends up hurt. But it doesn't take her long to realize how much she wants him and his strict discipline, enough to risk the height of humiliation to earn his forgiveness.
Publisher's Note: This steamy contemporary romance is the fifth instalment of the Miami Masters series but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone. It includes elements of power exchange and ménage.
