About the Book:
Title: His Desire, Her Surrender (Dominating BDSM Billionaires Erotic Romance #2)
Author: Malia Mallory
Publication Date: March 5, 2013
Tabitha Quinn’s Hawaii vacation was anything but ordinary. Dominant billionaire Marcus Granger saved her life, swept her into his bed, and then left her heartbroken. Now she’s back in New York, mourning the man she’s sure she’ll never see again.
Marcus may have left handprints on her skin, but Tabitha’s left handprints on his heart: he tracks her down, and they resume the sizzling affair they began in the islands.
Tabitha belongs to Marcus body and soul in bed, but she worries she doesn’t belong in his high-stakes world. They’ve already dodged a murder attempt, and now Marcus is fighting off a competitor’s takeover. When the rival company obtains critical information, suspicion falls on Tabitha. She has to prove she’s innocent–and worthy to wear Marcus’s collar.
Welcome Malia Mallory!
Thank you Gillian for hosting me! I’m told today is Tied Up Tuesday….so I picked something appropriate to our theme.
My newest release is entitled His Desire, Her Surrender. It is the second book in a series and the sequel to His Need, Her Desire. The lines are taken out of context, but I think you can use your imagination to figure out what might be happening.
1. “I’ve had a vision in my head of you tied to the bedpost.”
2. Tabitha reached out and handled the loops. They were soft on the surface. Thick, velvet fabric padded the strong line within.
3. He looped it around her waist, up between her breasts, and over her shoulder, pulling it snug.
4. This bondage didn’t compare to the handcuffs they’d used before. It encompassed her whole body, heightening her feeling of submission.
5. The bonds held her securely, but she didn’t struggle. She’d never envisioned herself like this. Never. She looked ripe, ready, sexy.
Which is your favorite?
#3 is definitely my fave!
Marcus tapped his stomach. “I don’t know about you, but I’m getting hungry. If you fix something, I’ll reward you later. Deal?”
“Sure.” Tabitha pulled chicken from the refrigerator as Marcus left her to find her way around the kitchen. She planned to cook something quick and easy on the stovetop. She located onions, chopped them and tossed them into a sauté pan. Further searching turned up rice and spices. A little saffron and cardamom and she’d have something tasty.
Once everything was in the pan, she tracked down the makings of a salad. That would do, she thought, chicken and rice with salad. Simple but appetizing.
As she set the table, Marcus reappeared, towels in hand. “I thought you might want one for sitting.” He spread one on the chair at the head of the table and the other on the chair to the side.
Tabitha handed Marcus the salad bowl. “This whole nudity thing. I’m not sure if I’d get used to it. Might get chilly.”
Marcus stole a carrot slice out of the salad and tossed it in his mouth. “I imagine so. But it can be a fun change of pace.”
“Yes.” Tabitha brought the chicken and rice to the table, and they settled in.
Marcus gazed on the food with appreciation. “This is great. I’m starving.”
“I hope you like it. I make it quite often.”
Marcus placed one hand on her thigh as he took a bite with the other.
Tabitha’s fork stopped in mid-air as heat flooded her. She was glad for the towel underneath her. The last thing she wanted was to stain the upholstery.
Marcus massaged her skin and slid his hand between her thighs.
Tabitha set down her fork. “Marcus!”
He continued eating. “Yes?”
“I can’t eat when you do that.”
“You can’t?” He took another bite of chicken, clearly enjoying it. His fingers searched her intimate recesses.
Tabitha pursed her lips, displaying an amused frown. “No. I’m too distracted.”
“Mmm. That is unfortunate. This meal is wonderful.”
“It’s hard to think about eating right now.”
Marcus maintained his innocent air while he explored her moistening skin. “Really? I’m having no trouble at all.” He ingested another bite.
My Rating: 5 Stars
Combine a sexy billionaire, a sassy sub, super hot sex scenes, a dash of corporate intrigue, and a romantic HEA, and you have this fantastic story!
I was super excited to spend more time with Marcus and Tabitha. After the first book, their relationship seemed to have so much potential, and this book proves it. I enjoyed witnessing their chemistry as they grow as a couple and as Dom and sub, battle insecurities, learn to trust, and truly cement their feelings for one another. Both are believable characters, down-to-earth and relatable (even with Marcus’ extreme wealth). The story of their relationship has just enough heart-felt emotion and drama to keep it interesting, without too much angst. The real heat between this couple is in bedroom (or most any room they may happen to be in): the sex scenes are original, well-written, and super steamy, including a beautifully detailed bondage scene involving velvet covered rope that I just loved. The sex is deliciously kinky without being too edgy.
This story has it all, interesting characters, an engaging plot, great sex scenes, and a satisfying romance. It does not need to be read with the first book, but I highly recommend them both!
“He tapped into her most secret needs- her desire to be taken and tamed. She wasn’t a masochist. She wasn’t in to pain. But the sting of the paddle combined with surrender of control opened her mind and body to limitless pleasure. She yearned to feel it again. She’d never imagined that connections like she found with Marcus existed.”
