Only one man can help her. Is she willing to pay his price?
Faced with the potentially overwhelming loss of her family’s fortune, Lara Bertrand turns to the one man who can help her, the gorgeous and powerful Connor Donovan.
She knows he’s dangerous to her on every level. Only desperation would drive her to make such a risky proposition. After all, she knows all about his ruthless nature and relentless determination to succeed.
When the classy, elegant Lara walks into his office with an outrageous proposal, Connor is stunned and more than a little intrigued. Ever since he first met her, he’s been attracted to the cool beauty, but she’s more than kept her distance.
Connor is absolutely willing to help her out. For a price. He not only wants her hand in marriage, but also her total submissive surrender…
If you're looking for a nice, light BDSM story then Sierra Cartwright's books are always a winner. This book once again proved that Sierra Cartwright knows her audience and how to entertain them.
Bind is the first in the Donovan Dynasty series. It is the story of Connor Donovan and Lara Bertrand. Both Connor and Lara are executives in their families businesses. They are both young and powerful. But Connor has had extreme success at a very young age and Lara's father is slowly running his business (where Lara works as CFO) into the ground.
Lara's best friends with Connor sister, and when Connor's sister mentions that she always thought Connor and Lara would be good together an idea pops into Lara's head on how to put the business ahead. She proposes to Connor in order to get him onto the board of directors of her family's business.
Connor is intrigued by Lara's proposal, but he has a few conditions. The biggest is that he is a Dom and if Lara wants to marry him, it will not be in name only; it will be a true marriage in every sense of the word and Lara must agree to be Connor's submissive.
Connor slowly introduces Lara to the BDSM scene. He shows that he's all Dom and he demands her respect and obedience. Lara is naturally submissive. She had never explored kinky sex, but she soon finds out that with Connor at least, she's more fulfilled than ever. But is kinky sex enough to rule a relationship?
This book was lighter than a lot of BDSM romances I've read. So if you're looking for something without too much intensity this is a perfect place to start. It was lighter, but it was still a great story line. The book involved a billionaire, but it wasn't your typical kinky billionaire romance. The characters were well developed and didn't have huge issues holding them back. It was a refreshing and different change from most BDSM romances these days.
I give Bind FOUR STARS!
