The last place Washington D.C. investigative journalist Stella Martin wanted to cover was the White House. But when a friend’s request to watch over her latest submissive plaything when she’s out of town turns out to be the White House Communications Director, Stella’s sudden unwelcomed and unbearable assignment becomes quite interesting.
Laird Harkness hadn’t expected his perfect Domme would show up in his office—the most famous house in the world and a place where his secret desires could end his career. Stella calms his fears, but can she sate his craving to submit, serve and belong to someone?
About the Justice Series:
Washington, D.C. is full of powerful women. In this series, each book will introduce one of three D.C.-based Femme Dommes—Stella, Candor and Julianna—and the submissive men who get what they need: discipline, love and a larger purpose.
Meet the Author:
Writing erotic romance is the most fun I’ve ever had. (Well, except for the research.)
Many of my books are set in Washington, DC, where I lived and worked many years, running a public relations firm. In my PR career I’ve been fortunate to encounter or represent some of the city’s powerful insiders. I write, tweet and post under my pseudonym, Elizabeth SaFleur, since my clients might be a little shocked at how their counselor spends her free time. Then again, perhaps they’d fear they provided inspiration. (I’ll never tell.)
Today, I live in Virginia with my husband and furry child. Occasionally I’m separated from my laptop to indulge in dance classes and visit wineries and hiking trails with family and friends. If there were a house fire, I’d grab my dog, laptop and five foot-long, regulation, Sally Rand ostrich feather fans — in that order. (Hubby knows the way out.)
I’m a member of the Romance Writers of America, Washington Romance Writers, and an ongoing student of fiction writing, as well as avid reader of general fiction and romance, especially the erotic kind.
I LOVED this book! I have read everything Elizabeth SaFleur has written and I simply can’t get enough. This story is different from the norm in terms of the D/s relationship we usually are given. This time roles are reversed and it’s the woman who’s on top with the male being the bottom. I’ve always been intrigued by the submissive male. So often we are given alpha males who take charge in every aspect of their lives, both in and out of the bedroom. It’s refreshing to read a male lead who is a powerhouse in his every day life, but trusts someone enough to take the lead in the bedroom. I think that’s the ultimate turn on, someone who trusts you enough to give you everything. I liked the added suspense of the DC setting, because if anyone found out Laird’s tastes he could very well be ruined. I adored Stella as well. She is a true Domme in every sense of the word. She radiates a take charge attitude that commands attention, but she isn’t so harsh that her femininity is lost. She’s the perfect balance of power and woman. Now the two of them together is a bdsm lover’s dream. The scenes are hot, the tension palpable, and the chemistry is sizzling.
I would love to be able to sit down with Miss SaFleur and dish the dirt on DC. I’ve always been curious how much of what she writes really goes on behind closed doors. You know the saying, the truth is stranger than fiction. For now, I will be content to devour her sensual prose. I cannot wait to read more of this series, and more from the author in general. She is one of my favorites and a must read for those who love the bdsm genre as much as I do
