Review by Hibiscus

He never believed love was unconditional. She never expected the ties that bind would be found at the end of a flogger …

Arranging Love, the final novella in the Tilling Passions series, finds florist, Meghan Tilling, questioning the true impetus for her fiancé’s frequent business seminars and sudden interest in bondage. Could her sisters be right in claiming Peter’s out-of-town trips have more to do with clandestine meetings than with work commitments? Should Meghan let go of decorum and allow herself the pleasures of deviant sex?

Peter Maddock loves his fiancée, but when an online Dominatrix awakens the darker side of his sexual fantasies, he can’t help but seek her out at a private BDSM party. When several accidents threaten Meghan’s life, Peter fears he’s opened their world to a stalker. Will he be able to protect his fiancée without revealing secrets that may threaten everything and everyone he’s come to love?

Can Peter and Meghan explore their innermost desires and discover the answers to her father’s illness … all without losing their lives?

Contains: Mild BDSM, bondage, floggers, sex toys.

Arranging Love is the third book of the Tilling sisters’ story. I have to say that this is a great stand alone book. You really do not need to have read the previous books to understand this one but I, for one, will be picking up the books I have missed if they are anything like this story.

Meghan Tilling seem to be a very trusting young woman. She runs her flower shop and only thinks good of everyone. Even when she senses her fiancé is not as attentive as he was, she blames herself. I could relate to Meghan and what she was feeling. When her sisters tried to tell her they thought Peter was cheating on her, Meghan did not believe them and sought out excuses for his behavior.

Peter Maddock is Meghan’s fiancé. He travels in his business and is an orphan. At first I felt sorry for him being all alone in the world but then I got mad that he would surf the Internet looking for someone to hook up with to “fill the chasm in his heart”. That’s why he has Meghan. Peter discovers that he likes BDSM and convinces Meghan to spice up their love life.

The story had me completely enthralled. I rooted for Meghan, booed Peter, and tried to figure out who was trying to kill Meghan. Add to that the sick Tilling patriarch, the Tilling mother who was always being consoled by the doctor and one Mistress Crystal who is stalking Peter. Oh, my.

Arranging Love is a beautifully orchestrated story. There are twists and turns that have you guessing from the first chapter. I know I will be reading more about this fascinating family.
