New Release! Enslaved - a dark, edgy BDSM romance

I wanted to write something that was dark, edgy, a little dangerous, but still with some kind of connection. Not a typical non-consensual dark and dirty, but something with a potential for redemption, passion, even love. I wanted to write about real people - two flawed, confused, lonely people with a deep underlying attraction neither is willing to admit, each for his or her own reasons. This isn't a book for the faint of heart, but nor is it a sappy, pat paint-by-the-numbers romance, the kind where you know the ending after reading the first chapter.

I urge my readers of the sweet romances (though my romances always have an edge, I suppose) to give this darker, more intense work a chance. And those of you who favor the heart-pounding, gut wrenching non-cons, you might just find this fills the bill, along with a satisfying resolution that empowers both the characters and the reader.

Here is the blurb:

Caught red-handed with her fingers in the company cash, Rae Johansen must choose between near-certain jail time or a much shorter sentence locked away in a BDSM Dungeon. Acceptance means placing her free will, her body and possibly her soul in the hands of a dominant man who demands complete submission. Whips, chains, ropes, floggers and the sensual wrath of a spurned lover are just some of what await the hapless slave girl, should she accept the terms he offers.

Choose right, Rae, and choose wisely. This may be the last choice you ever make.
