Second in the Nature of Desire erotic romantic suspense series. This story focuses on two cops: one’s a city detective who happens to be a submissive who volunteers to go undercover at a BDSM club while the other is with the state police and a natural mistress.
I borrowed this eBook from the library and the moving process has screwed up my being able to do a proper review, so I’ll simply provide what basics I can from my memory.
Truly excellent. It’s the first time I’ve read a story on BDSM which features an alpha male as the submissive, and Hill did an excellent job of convincing me of both his alpha qualities AND his desire to submit. Without compromising either. I also loved how she treated Violet Siemanski as the Mistress who delves into the emotional aspects of his sexual preferences and what it is that Mac truly desires. Wow.
In some respects this was too easy cops-wise, and yet, Hill’s exploration of how norms see the D/s lifestyle and her buildup of Mac and Violet’s relationship was brilliant. Very nicely done. I’ll have to go back and find the first book in the series, Holding the Cards, 1, as I’m curious if Hill is just that good.
Someone is murdering submissives, and Mac goes undercover to find her with some dramatic results.
Mackenzie “Mac” Nighthorse is a homicide detective with a revealing decision to make.
Violet Siemanski may be a newcomer to the life, but she’s a natural-born Dominatrix who knows what needs to be done.
The cover definitely catches the eye with its naked and bound male in his submissive pose against the white backdrop.
