Only one man can help her. Is she willing to pay his price?

Faced with the potentially overwhelming loss of her family’s fortune, Lara Bertrand turns to the one man who can help her, the gorgeous and powerful Connor Donovan.

She knows he’s dangerous to her on every level. Only desperation would drive her to make such a risky proposition. After all, she knows all about his ruthless nature and relentless determination to succeed.

When the classy, elegant Lara walks into his office with an outrageous proposal, Connor is stunned and more than a little intrigued. Ever since he first met her, he’s been attracted to the cool beauty, but she’s more than kept her distance.

Connor is absolutely willing to help her out. For a price. He not only wants her hand in marriage, but also her total submissive surrender…

I’m an unconditional fan of Sierra Cartwright’s novels. I think she’s a great author and I love reading her, but lately, I can’t seem to shake off the feeling that her novels start a little slow. Bind is no exception. It took me a while to warm up to the characters but eventually I did, and became hooked.

The novel flows smoothly. The writing, as always is first rate, but it is the tension between the characters and the hot sex scenes that move the story forward and thus kept e on edge in more ways than one. One of my favorite scenes was the office proposition. It had me wishing I was little Lara.

However, even though the sex was hot I had the perception that unlike other novels, Cartwright didn’t go into much detail about the BDSM portion. Of course, it was there, after all, it is an essential part of the plot line and Connor himself, but Lara was a novice and unlike other heroines and what one would expect in real life, she accepted everything Connor dished. Wouldn’t using a single tail whip be too much for a novice like her? Everything happened too fast, both sexually and emotionally. It was a roller coaster ride in which I seemed to be missing the smooth transition between hills.

Still, regardless of the above, Bind, was an enjoyable novel with two characters that have depth, an interesting plot line and sizzling sex.
