She wants to turn up the heat. He’s got the skills to whip her into a frenzy.

The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 5

TV food show host Tabbart Tracy works hard to give viewers her best recipes. But while her fans are legion, her personal life is colder than a meat locker. Most men just want her to serve up some pie—in the nude.

One glance at her assistant’s sexy brother, though, and her body skips straight from low simmer to rolling boil. Especially when she tracks him down at a stud ranch. Where he’s the stud.

When a certain little TV foodie personally requests Stowe’s company for a week, he’s flattered as hell. She needs to give up some control, and as a sex therapist otherwise known as the “Dom from Down Under”, Stowe has the leather, rope, and paddles to do it.

Just as Tabbart melts into a puddle under Stowe’s hands, her worst fear chills her back to reality: someone recognizes her. Worse, her Master frowns on opening her checkbook to make it all go away. But trusting him means hanging onto their connection with both hands—while he takes her for the ride of her life.

Em Petrova has written another steamy story that captivated this reader. Rope Burn is the fifth book in her amazing Boot Knockers Series. Let me tell you it doesn’t get any hotter than this series and Stowes book happens to be among my favorites.

I couldn’t help but like Stowe who was known as The Dom From Down Under around the Boot Knockers Ranch. It was lust at first sight when Stowe and Tabbart first met on the set of her celebrity food show. They had an instant connection but Stowe returns to the ranch without making any moves on Tabbart. These two were both feeling restless in their lives for one reason or another. They couldn’t stop thinking about each other but it was Tabbart who sought Stowe out at the Boot Knockers Ranch and paid for his sex therapy services for a week. Her only request was complete privacy because of being a celebrity, and that was where the most trouble came about when someone recognized her at the ranch.

Em Petrova gave these two characters an incredibly real connection. They were fascinated with each other right from the beginning, but their relationship grew into something more than the sizzling chemistry, and somehow the author conveyed that deeper connection in their scenes together. As usual, it was their intimate scenes that burned up the pages. Stowe had all the right moves and toys, cuffs, crops, whips to make Tabbert one very happy girl. Now, readers who are familiar with this series will know that Stowe is known around the ranch as The Dom From Down Under. So there was some lite BDSM. There wasn’t a lot of drama between them until the end, but both of these characters were likeable. Tabbart totally trusted in Stowe, and he was determined to protect her no matter what.

I absolutely love Em Petrova’s books. Her writing style is excellent, the story was engaging and flowed easily. I enjoyed it so much that it seemed to fly by too fast, even. My favorite part, and the one that first snagged my interest, was the strong characters and their wonderful bond. Yes, it was a sensual story but it was that romance aspect that I loved most.

I completely enjoyed this book !
