On the Flap
The WILD Boys are back! USA Today Bestseller Angel Payne continues the hotter-than-hot series with this sensual story featuring CIA special agent Daniel Colton.
A scarred hero...
Dan Colton was once the CIA’s golden boy, a get-things-done cowboy who believed forgiveness was better to ask for than permission. But performing the devil’s work was always easy with his angel’s face, a damn good asset to have whether he was charming agency superiors…or training submissives in his dark dungeon role plays.
Until his face was taken away.
An act of ultimate bravery has spit Colton back out as a bitter shell, unsure how to relate to the world without his physical calling card. His only condolence is dreaming of revenge on the bastard responsible for the fire that disfigured him, but when that plan backfires, he is a beast without prey—tormented by a beauty he cannot touch.
A willing submissive...
Tess Lesange, known around the CIA’s Vegas office as “The Laser”, has only one Achilles heel—in the form of the brooding agent who once wouldn’t give her the time of day. Since Dan Colton’s accident, they’ve become friends, even trusting each other with some of their kinkier secrets. What are friends for, right?
A dangerous masquerade...
Now Dan has become Tess’s greatest joy, toughest torment, and most sinful desire. Thoughts of surrendering to his rough brand of domination consume her, but Dan thinks of her as nothing more than the brainy analyst in the next office over.
Still seeking the submissive dream, Tess takes matters into her own hands and journeys in disguise to one of the desert’s most elicit kink clubs. When the Dominant she meets there is also beneath a mask, his voice so alluring and familiar, she wonders if karma has conspired to fulfill one of her deepest fantasies…and what price she’ll have to pay for it come true. Is she willing to sacrifice everything she’s built in a friendship with Dan, for one unforgettable night in his dungeon?
Daniel and Tess are best friends brought close after he suffered a horrendous burn injury during a mission. Once the pretty boy, Dan had exiled himself to the darkness after he suffered burns to his face. Everyone thought him a hero and his face a badge of honor including Tess. Just like Daniel had trusted Tess to not dwell on his insecurities about his appearance, she entrusted him with her deepest secret, her interest in a Dominant/Submissive life style. Having been a part of this life style for many years, Dan offered to discuss any questions she may have. Things were working perfectly until Tess had asked Dan to be her Dominant. Not wanting to ruin the precious friendship they have, Dan turns her down. Let down, she was still determined to go through with her plan, Tess ends up at a BDSM club that unbeknownst to her was owned by Dan’s friend. Unwilling to see her taken advantage of by another Dominant, Dan steps in to take her through her first experience as a submissive. This definitely turns the heat factor up.
The nice surprise to me was Tess. She was a heroine that could have followed Dan’s lead and wallowed in her insecurities stemming from her horrible family life and Dan’s rejection but she didn’t. To me, Tess was the real hero in this story. Her strength and drive to change her life was strong enough to bring Dan out of his dark world and into the light with her. It was through her strength that they had found their relationship had a greater value than mere friendship. They were still them but stronger.
