Bind by Sierra Cartwright

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…

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal play.

This was an interesting book... I thought I totally knew where it was going to go only to be floored when the rug was yanked out from under me... and I loved every second of it.

Connor is so sexy and Lara is just perfect for him. Not to mention their scenes together are amazing, especially in the playroom.

The tension that is around the business and family on both sides was interesting. I think the only thing I would've liked to see is more interaction with Erin, Connor's sister and Lara's bestie.

The writing was superb. I loved how easy it was to fall into the book and forget everything else. I wanted to cheer and shout (and pout and stomp my foot) at different times throughout.

I can't wait for the second book in this series, or more from this author in general!

I am a big fan of Ms. Cartwright's writing, so was delighted to see a new series from her. And this is a great start to it, that's for sure.

The premise is inspired, the outcome is perfect and the execution is both incredibly hot and cleverly plotted. We are introduced to two families worth of characters, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of Connor and Lara in future episodes. I loved the interplay between them, the resolution of the contract, and the intensity which developed. I think the family dynamics were handled brilliantly, and I missed a night's sleep because I could not stop reading.

If you like your Doms intense and your submissives intelligent, then this will work for you. It is much more than that though, with a good business based issue to resolve and feelings to be considered. And even rescue dogs play a role too!

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
This could have been the same old story – girl seeks man to help save her father's company. She approaches guy asks him to marry her and guy saves the day, right? Right. Except this was so much more.

Lara seeks a simple business arrangement with Connor but he has a few stipulations of his own. He wants Lara to explore her submissive side. When she admits that she's toyed with the idea of getting a little kinky in the bedroom, Connor knows he has to do whatever it takes to bring her out of her shell.

Connor slowly teaches her about what he expects from his submissive and when Lara learns what he likes easily, you can see a bond forming between them. Lara knows that love is off the table as far as Connor is concerned, but she is fast falling for him anyway.

I can't wait for the second book of this series.

Part of a Series: Yes, Donovan Dynasty

Heat Level: Hot and spicy

Sierra Cartwright was born in Manchester, England and raised in Colorado. Moving to the United States was nothing like her young imagination had concocted. She expected to see cowboys everywhere, and a covered wagon or two would have been really nice!

Now she writes novels as untamed as the Rockies, while spending a fair amount of time in Texas…where, it turns out, the Texas Rangers law officers don't ride horses to roundup the bad guys, or have six-shooters strapped to their sexy thighs as she expected. And she's yet to see a poster that says Wanted: Dead or Alive. (Can you tell she has a vivid imagination?)

Sierra wrote her first book at age nine, a fanfic episode of Star Trek when she was fifteen, and she completed her first romance novel at nineteen. She actually kissed William Shatner (Captain Kirk) on the cheek once, and she says that's her biggest claim to fame. Her adventure through the turmoil of trust has taught her that love is the greatest gift. Like her image of the Old West, her writing is untamed, and nothing is off-limits.

She invites you to take a walk on the wild side…but only if you dare.
