Hold Tight by Lise Horton

Eden Grant craves a life of intense experience. She yearns for the breathtaking man who makes her heart beat fast. The dominant male who can unleash the dark passions she is desperate to explore. Fate offers up the chance encounter that tempts Eden to brave a walk on that wild side.

“Live life at its richest and most raw" is Hud Crockett’s credo. And when he meets kink-curious Eden Grant, she is the submissive of his unbridled dreams. Together they embrace their wicked desires, fanning the flames of lust to orgasmic heights.

But an introduction to carnal pleasure leads to emotions that cannot be shackled by expectations or tamed by conventions. The conventions--and complications--that may destroy their fragile love. Eden will do battle for her Dom, but can she overcome the darkness of his past torments? One last contest will decide the victor. Society is the referee. The opponent is Hud’s past. Hud has fame, fortune and power, but he will risk it all as the clock runs down in the most important game of his life: the contest to win Eden’s heart.

3.5* hot and troubling stars

This is a book which has me in a quandary as to how to describe it and how to review it. It is extremely hot, in places pretty dark, and some elements of Hud's behaviour made me see red. I was tempted to stop reading in annoyance, but given that Eden kept going, I did too. And I am glad I did, although to say that she was generous-hearted would be an understatement in the extreme. It is a good read, and actually a pretty good book of the genre, in that it definitely makes the point about the strength of character of the submissive.

I look forward to reading other people's reviews, as I think that they will be quite polarised. Thank you Ms. Horton for a thought-provoking read.

Lise Horton writes erotic romance, and erotic fiction as Lydia Hill. Words of Lust was her debut novel (Carina Press, 2013). As Lydia Hill, her erotic short stories: My Master’s Mark, which Library Journal called “surprisingly poignant,” is the closing story in Slave Girls: Erotic Stories of Submission, edited by D. L. King (Cleis Press, May 2014), and Tryst of Fate appears in Violet Blue’s Cleis Press anthology, Best Women’s Erotica 2015 (January 2105). Hold Tight is Lise Horton’s first novel with Loose Id.

A graduate of Skidmore College with a degree in Education, she has worked in jobs as a diamond grader, theatre union assistant and bartender. She’s a former native of New York City who now lives in a suburb of Manhattan with her rescued feline fur friends and her books. Lots of books. Spending hours in her Certified Wildlife Habitat garden inspires her writing, allows her to commune with Mother Nature and keeps her calm after a day on the job as an assistant in a prominent entertainment law firm in New York City, where she enjoys the enthusiastic support of her co-workers for her literary endeavors.

In a previous creative incarnation, Lise was a New York theatre actress, and an award-winning cabaret singer in some of Manhattan’s iconic clubs. She attributes her depth of insight in romance fiction to that training and experience. There is nothing quite as magical as seducing an audience with magnificent songs of love and longing; drawing them into the story and making their hearts yearn right along with yours. Those years helped fuel her desire to create and share torrid stories of love and passion as a romance author. Lise is a long-time member of Romance Writers of America.
