Valentine Submission series
Valentine Submission (Valentine Submission, Book 1)
Desperate for some peace and quiet after an ugly divorce, Anne escapes to the beach for an impromptu vacation. But instead of r&r, she finds unexpected passion in the arms of a longtime friend, Jack, who happens to be a widowed Dom. Anne is open to his lifestyle and asks him to teach her submission. But when she realizes she's lost her heart to him, things get complicated. Not only is she due back at her job in two weeks, but she fears competing with the memory of Jack's wife. Maybe it's not meant to be.
Anne's sweet submissive nature brings the Dom in Jack to life, and he finds the first happiness he's known in a long time. He plans a special surprise for her in his playroom on Valentine's Day - only to discover she's left without saying goodbye. The chase is on. If Anne thought she could leave him that easily, she'd better think twice...
Tessa's Submission (Valentine Submission, Book 2)
Richard Black owes the owner of Violet House a favor, so he agrees to stay at the oceanfront bed and breakfast for three weeks while his friends vacation in the Bahamas. He never imagined the new cook he's forced to hire at the last minute would quicken his pulse and stir his darkest desires. Tessa's the hardest temptation he's tried to resist, so young and so innocent, but their mutual attraction soon explodes into several nights of passion and exploration as he teaches her to submit.
Tessa Field will take almost any job, as long as room and board is included. She's desperate to escape her cruel stepfather and stepbrother after the death of her mother, and the temporary position as a cook and maid at Violet House seems like the perfect stepping stone in her quest for independence. She finds herself drawn to the enigmatic Mr. Black, and it isn't long before he masters her sexually and dominates her every waking thought. But when she's offered a job interview at a nearby business, reality beckons. Knowing her time at Violet House is limited and fearing Mr. Black isn't interested in a permanent relationship, she sneaks off for the interview. Apparently, their happiness isn't meant to last . . . or is it? Richard's not the kind of man to take no for an answer, and he has a few tricks up his sleeve.
