A firefighter and his submissive wife face potentially life-threatening issues on their journey deeper into the world of BDSM. 

Following a long-delayed honeymoon that saved their crumbling marriage, firefighter Dom Jamie Caldwell couldn’t be happier with how his wife and submissive is taking to the lifestyle. But when a scene triggers a bad reaction and Erica doesn’t use her safeword, Jamie wonders just how solid their bond truly is. 

Erica is over the moon with her new relationship with her husband. Just months ago, they’d been on the verge of divorce, but now the future is bright—all thanks to the trust and honesty they’ve forged through BDSM.

A Snippet

Lying naked across Jamie’s lap, Erica curled her hands into fists, bringing the cuffs that bound her wrists into stark relief. She struggled to suppress the quivers that wracked her shoulders in anticipation of Jamie’s spanking. “Please, Sir,” she begged.

Jamie chuckled and ran his hand over her hungry flesh. “Remember what I said about topping from the bottom?”

“Sorry, Sir. I just really—”

Shoot. She was doing it again. Snapping her mouth shut, she forced herself to relax her fists and kept her eyes on the carpet. When a few light taps landed on her butt, she sighed in relief. Jamie always started this way.

“You just what?” his voice was soft, curious.

“I need it. So badly.”

Against her hip, she felt Jamie’s growing erection. She pressed into it, wanting his pleasure as much as her own.

“I have a present for you,” he said.

Instantly on alert, she turned her head to see his face. Jamie’s presents were usually new toys to add to their growing collection. He reached into his toy bag and pulled out a serious-looking paddle. It was about fifteen inches long and had holes in the head. “This is a discipline paddle.”

“Thank you, Sir.” She allowed her mouth to curve into a grin. “I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.”

“No you won’t.” He smacked her hard. Heat enveloped her left butt cheek. She yelped, her back arching to pull her bottom as far away from the paddle as she could. “But I will,” he added, and she could hear the sadistic amusement in his voice.

A firefighter desperate to save his failing marriage earns the trust—and the sexual submission—of his controlling wife in the most pleasurable of ways.

After an explosive one-night stand results in pregnancy, Jamie Caldwell is thrilled to marry the perfect foil to his Dom side. But when his submissive wife starts cringing every time he gives a command, Jamie shackles his dark desires. A bout of rough, frenzied reunion sex makes him wonder if now he should free the Dom he’s kept in chains and teach Erica the joys of submission and sexual surrender.

Erica Caldwell secretly loved every sinful thing Jamie did to her on their first night together. However, terrified she’ll become a codependent doormat like her mother, she repeatedly rejects Jamie’s dominance, despite craving the kind of release only he can give her—the release that comes from yielding to Jamie’s every demand.

Hoping that the trust required by BDSM will help them rebuild their faith in each other, Jamie and Erica embark on a journey of sexual exploration. But is it too late to repair their crumbling marriage?

Everything Bared
(Six-Alarm Sexy, Book Two)


Polar opposites—she’s kinky, he’s uptight—discover they share a taboo desire that may destroy both their futures. 

Firefighter Dani Harris has always wanted a family, but doesn’t think it’s possible because of her demanding, high-stakes career. Her sex life is as high-adrenaline as her job, and that’s just one more thing that makes her unsuitable to be a wife and mother. Her secret kink—exhibitionism—has gotten in the way of more than one relationship. Will she ever find a man who not only shares her wild fantasies, but loves her for them?

Burdened with ensuring the success of the struggling family business, William Caldwell IV needs a wife suited for a CEO—one with money and connections, who can manage his busy social life and raise their 2.5 children. He’s got everything all mapped out, but when he meets Dani, a woman who’s nothing but every kind of wrong, she taps into desires he’s only half-recognized and long-suppressed. Suddenly his carefully crafted five-year plan feels as confining as a straightjacket.

As Dani and Will’s sexual experimentation escalates, they test the limits of polite society by baring all and risking exposure—an exposure that could cost them their reputations and careers.

Happy Reading!

Thank you!

Sunlight caught the crystal that hung from the rear view mirror, and rainbow bursts of color radiated throughout the car. My parents and I had gotten up early so that we could make the three hour drive to my uncle’s house, but from the line of backed up traffic in front of us, it seemed that it would take us longer. I leaned back in my seat and let the music blaring in my earbuds help pass the time. My mother turned in her seat in the front, and I glanced at her. Seeing her mouth my name, I pulled one side of the earbuds out of my ear.
“What did you say?” I asked.
“I asked if you were hungry,” she replied. “Your father thinks that we should get off the interstate at the next exit and grab something to eat while the traffic clears up.”
“Sure, that’s fine with me. It’s a good idea, anyway, since Uncle John turned vegetarian. There’s no telling what he’s going to try to get us to eat.”
My father’s hearty laugh rumbled through the car. “Do you remember that rolled up spinach thing he tried to feed us last time?”
“How could I forget?” I said.
Mom sprung to her brother’s defense. “It wasn’t so bad.”
“Then how come you didn’t eat it? I saw you slip it to the dog when you thought nobody was watching.” My father glanced at my mother while she tried to come up with a retort.
“If you saw that, then it’s obvious that I wasn’t sneaky enough.” She crossed her arms over her chest and stared out the window.
My dad laughed as he flipped on the turn signal and merged into the right lane, coming to a stop behind a logging truck. I looked at the long logs protruding from the flatbed. “It always makes me nervous when they hang off like that,” I said. A shiver raced over my body.
“It’s okay. They make sure to load them on so that they won’t come off,” my dad reassured me.
I opened my mouth to reply but stopped when I heard a screech of tires behind us. Turning my head, I locked eyes with the man in the driver’s seat of the truck that was hurtling toward us. The truck slammed into the back of our car, and my mother’s scream echoed in the tight space around me. A shower of white stars filled my vision as pain ripped through my shoulder and cut off my own scream. As the darkness closed in around me, I heard the faint shrill of sirens in the distance.
