This book came from the library, and I will never give you less than an honest review, no matter its source. I do provide informational and purchase links to make it more convenient for you to access the book. I also receive a percentage of the sale if you use one of my links to buy it. And that's not enough money to be less than truthful *grin*.

Both short stories are erotic romances with a focus on bondage and submission in a threesome. The series revolves around a group of men who love their women and want to give them what they consider the ultimate pleasure with the occasional threesome.


“Submission” (Bound Hearts, 2)
“Seduction” (Bound Hearts, 3)

Yes, this is a very erotic combination and what I like is the reason Leigh gives for their preference for a threesome. It’s actually very caring with a nice storyline holding the sex together.

The Stories

Submission” is about James Wyman and Ella Delacourte with Sax as their third. Ella is Tessa Delacourte’s mother from “Surrender”, the first in the Bound Hearts series. So, it’s rather surprising to discover the truth as to why Ella was so appalled at Tessa’s behavior.

I did enjoy James’ seduction of Ella, the lady who doth protest too much. It’s a nice switch for the ladies to have a woman older than the man who is so incredibly attracted to her.

Seduction” is Terrie’s seduction with Jesse Wyman, a lawyer at Delacourt Electronics, and Lucian as their third. Tally Raines enters the series as Jesse’s bitchy secretary who connives with Terrie. Seems Terrie wasted a lot of years through her own fear of Jesse’s desires only to experience worse with his brother Thomas.

This one includes a threesome with two women and a man. Another short story that deals with the fear of accepting one’s own desires and sexual needs.

The Cover and Title

The cover is disturbing with the morph-effect of a man’s head and neck seeming to emerge from the back of a woman’s head and shoulder. I guess Leigh chose only a couple for this cover as both women are more interested in an intense relationship with one man and the occasional third.

The title is simply the titles of both stories, “Submission” and “Seduction”.
