Hot British Dom!

If the accent doesn’t have you at the hook, then the ramped up sex on page 2 might do it! This story goes from taking the reader hook, line and sinker into extremes of hot passion. The stakes are way high with little time to sit on laurels which makes this story awesome!!

Great for slave role-play with a bit of the historical going on! This is a hot read filling in the itch for anyone who likes a Dom with a good balance of love and forcefulness to make the fantasy just right! Sub

This book was beautifully written, capturing both my interest and painting vivid images of a couple at the start of their dom/sub relationship. If you have read any of my reviews, you know I love a story that draws you in and doesn’t seem like the author is going through a checklist of sexual activities. This book not only drew me in emotionally, but I felt like I was there with our heroine, down on my knees, hands tied behind my back and waiting for the moment of conquest. The author does a mas ...more

This was a pretty good short quick read. Caro Anderson is looking for a Dom not just any Dom she longs for a stern master to love. A friend suggest that she gives the hot British Dom a chance she agrees. Rhys Devlin believes he's finally found a submissive who desires the same sexual needs that he does they agree to spend the weekend together. Rhys is captivated by the beautiful Caro and desires to make her fully his, to force her to utter her safe words "Kiss Me". Caro has been hurt and she has ...more

I was given this book for a review.

With that being said, I did enjoy reading this book. Sweet submission comes to mind. Caro wants a weekend with a Dom that will push her to her limits. Rhet is just that Dom. He is determined to get her to use her safe word, "kiss me." She hasn't kissed a man in years and puts this as a hard limit for her. The man she kisses must earn her submission and trust. She has been hurt in the past and is harboring that experience and not living.

I want to start by saying, THIS BOOK GRABBED ME IMMEDIATELY!!!!! That doesn't happen every day and especially with me. I was quickly seduced by the story.

I do not normally read novella's but I made an exception here and I am so glad I did. I normally feel that a full size novel is sometimes too short and I want to read more because it is sooooo good. That is why a novella just leaves me wanting so much more. Bu

I enjoyed this storyline. The characters were well developed and interesting. I would like to see this as a full novel with extended storyline. This is well written and I look forward to reading more from this author.

I really loved this book. The BDSM sex was really hot. The book was fun and easy to read. I really wish there was more. i would love to see what happens next.
This is the second book I have read by Marilyn Lakewood and I love the way she writes her scenes. They are so real to life and make me feel like I am a part of the action as it occurs. This is not about the holiday per se but takes place during the Christmas season and adds to the fantasy that is being played out. I was into the story from the first page and stayed glued until the last page.

Caro Anderson has come to England for a short term design job but her friend knows of a service that puts

Come on in and step back in time to 18th century England. Curl up by the blazing fire in a quaint little English cottage in the middle of a winter wonderland. Your weekend fantasy awaits; your noble British Dom arrives.
Marilyn Lakewood has done a splendid job of pushing the BDSM elements. While this book is definitely one of the harder erotica I've read, it was tantalizing at every step. The scenes that she has set are not for the wea

I really enjoyed this short story of finding true submission. This steamy story maybe BDSM based however the message is true of any relationship. In order for a relationship to work, you need to be able to let down your emotional shields and trust your partner.

Holiday Submission is a quick, steamy story with an important message.

Liked this book. Even though it was short, it still packed a punch and managed to read like a longer book. The chemistry between the players was red hot and the Dominant/Submissive budding relationship was fantastic. Really good writing

Fantasy weekend.

Caro wants a 1700s era role play weekend with a Dom who will test all her limits. Rhys wants a sub who can handle his extreme discipline. Caro uses an online service who matches her with Rhys to fulfill her fantasy. From Friday night to early Sunday morning they share one hot scene after another. There is no blood play, but there is bondage, spankings, beatings and toys. This is not for the faint hearted. I plan to read it again. I loved it.

I received this book in exchange for enrolling in the author's newsletter. The book grabs you by the throat on page 2 and doesn't relinquish control until the very end. Very explicit sex, BDSM role-playing, slave and master, some of it can be a little difficult to read or even uncomfortable. Despite being uncomfortable underneath all the sex, there is a story and a plot. Caro and Rhys are both looking for something they haven't found yet. Have they discovered it in each other? You will have to r ...more

Marilyn writes erotic romance. Her stories range in heat levels from sweet to hardcore, sometimes include ménage, and usually have themes of dominance and submission. Be advised, the road to love is a little hard at times. You may need to buckle your cuffs. ♥

“Why did you start looking for a Dom?” “A vanilla lover couldn’t give me the extremes.” “Yet no Dom has won you. Why?” “I haven’t found a Dom who will give me the extremes, Sir.” “I want the truth, Caro.” “You’re right. I've found some extremes, but not the right kind. Not the right Dom.” “Why, Caro? What was missing in them?” “Judgment, honor, gallantry. There’s a huge difference between a consensual sadist in the BDSM lifestyle, and a complete sadist. To me, a male who just likes to hurt things and has no compassion is a complete sadist, and less than a man. A male who consensually torments a woman to heighten lovemaking and bring them pleasure—a man who cares for her—is a true Dom, and the most desirable kind of man.” 1 likes
