On the flap: Some contracts are made to be broken...
A contract broken…
Ryan Church and Jill Paxon enjoyed their life as Master and submissive until the day Ryan's entire world crumbled. No longer able to fulfill his end of the contract, Ryan did what he thought was best for Jill. He let her go.
An unexpected reunion…
Eighteen months later, Ryan is working for Ian Taggart as the Dom in Residence at the elite BDSM club Sanctum when his former submissive walks through the door looking for a job. Jill has changed, but his desire for her is still insatiable. Jill, shattered by his past rejection, can't trust Ryan, but she needs the job. Back in the community where she once felt safe and secure, she longs for the life she lost and the man she loved.
A last chance for love…
Ryan is presented with an opportunity to restore his wealth and name, but it could cost him his last chance at rebuilding a life with the woman he loves. When the secrets Jill has carefully hidden from Ryan are exposed, a terrible twist of fate might take her out of his life forever.
Ryan Church and Jillian Paxon had a life and a contract to support their Master/full time submissive lifestyle. When Ryan suddenly found his life falling apart, he ends their contract and put her in the care of his friend.
Eighteen months later…
Ryan is now the manager and Dom in residence of Sanctum, the exclusive BDSM club owned by Ian Taggart. Ian browbeats Ryan to interview and hire a bar manager…enter Jill. Jill has definitely changed since the last time they were together. She’s stubborn and refuses to trust any more after being burned so thoroughly when the relationship ended. Will they be able to work together? Will their explosive chemistry ever come to fruition?
This is a great novella...something to tie you over until the next full installment of the Masters and Mercenaries series is published. Super hot while having a great emotional foundation. Lexi Blake still gets in the same elements that make her full novels so much fun to read.

I have a large appetite for books with pensive alpha males. I tend to lean towards erotica and contemporary romance. I am completely addicted to my Kindle and feel naked when it’s not with me. If you have any recommendations, feel free to email them. I’m a single-ish woman with two crazy dogs. I also love football and basketball. Living in Oklahoma City, my teams are the Thunder and Sooners.
