Skye Sommers had come to Rourke Danville beaten but not broken, and he had stepped up and rescued her – a complete stranger to him. He'd rented one of his houses, on his own land, to her and then, when the situation between herself and her attacker had become heated, he'd not so much as batted an eye at opening his own house to her. In fact, it had been much more like he hadn't given her a choice about whether or not she was going to come to stay with him, because he'd already begun putting his size 13 triple E's down, or rather his triple extra large palm down on her bottom when he deemed it necessary to gain her cooperation in any given matter, or to correct what he considered to be disobedient behavior – which seemed to be anything that disagreed with him. And he certainly wasn't going to hesitate to do so when it was a matter of her personal safety. Quite the contrary.

She nearly snorted as she remembered that he'd threatened to spank her within about five minutes of having met her, which almost had her running screaming in the opposite direction. And now, here she was, long after the event that had freed her from having to worry about Mark Mercer for several decades as he languished in jail, waiting for the first stroke of that wicked looking quirt of his to fall.

This book was originally published on Spanking Romance as "Skyes Submission, Book One", "Skye's Submission, Book Two", and "Skye's Submission, Book Three: The Wedding".

“Do you think I don’t know where you are?”

Skye stopped, right in the middle of pulling the casserole out of the oven, so much so that it seared right through the cheap oven mitts she was using and she burned her fingers a bit, but she couldn’t bother with that pain right now. Her heart was being squeezed too tightly within her chest to bother with that, and her lungs right along with them, so much so that she didn’t think she could manage even the shallowest of breaths. Shaking, she approached the answering machine like it was a cobra, puffed up and ready to strike.

“55 Rural Route 3, Los Lunas, Tx. And you know I already have your unpublished, unlisted phone number. See you soon, lover.”

The next message automatically started playing, not that she heard it. She sank onto the couch, too afraid to even touch the machine, her face buried in her hands. How had Mark found her again? She’d been so careful! She’d just begun to put down roots here in south central Texas, and she really liked where she was. The town was small and close knit, but they’d seemed to accept her from the beginning. Even her surly, perpetually angry looking neighbor had seemed to have taken a liking to her... sort of. If you could call it that. He definitely liked her cooking, anyways.

As if he’d known she was thinking about her, the behemoth in question knocked at their door. He never used the doorbell, as if he was allergic to it, or something. Probably thought he’d crush that little button with his humongous finger. She’d come to recognize the knock. It was just like him � strong, firm, and uncompromising. It meant business, and, although an encounter with him right now was just exactly what her jangled nerves did not need, she knew that he would already have noted that her car was in the driveway, so she couldn’t get away with pretending she wasn’t home.

Damn it! Why couldn’t she get herself into the habit of parking the blasted thing in the garage, anyway? But then, that would be the essence of her � somewhat lackadaisical. Not as pertained to work, at all, though. When she was working, she was type A all the way; a place for everything and everything in its place. But as far as her personal life... well, her current situation, as well as the car in the driveway where it technically shouldn’t have been, kind of said it all, didn’t it? She generally tended to take the easy way out, rather than doing things the right way the first time.

There was a second banging at the door before she realized that she’d just been sitting there in a stupor, contemplating the hopelessness of her situation. “Jesus Christ, I’m coming, I’m coming.” It was when she reached for the door knob and immediately regretted the firmness of her grip that she realized she’d done a reasonable job burning her fingers, and was trying to surreptitiously blow on them and rub them when he barged in, not waiting for an invitation, as usual.

She should have known better to think that she would have been able to keep anything from him. “What’d you do to your hands?” he asked immediately.

The blasted man had eyes like a frigging eagle! “I just burned myself a little when I was taking dinner out of the oven.” She tried to keep her hands away from him as she ran the cold water, hiding them behind her while she stood at the sink waiting, but he wasn’t about to have any of that under any circumstance.

Despite her best efforts � which she knew were completely futile and childish at best but they were all she had to offer against him � he had her hands palm up and under his thorough scrutiny in seconds after he’d joined her, leaning his hip casually against the counter as if subduing her was second nature, and she knew it was. “You did a good job, but they’re not blistering. Hold them under here for a while. It’ll help take the sting out.”

Skye scowled up at him. “That’s what I was trying to do before you so rudely commandeered my hands. I could have been doing that for the past two minutes already...” her tirade trailed off at the look he was giving her.

Rourke turned away and inspected the mitts, then looked back at her. “With all the cooking and baking that you do, these are what you use?” He held up the well-worn, holey, non-insulated gloves.

Unafraid, and not all sure she shouldn’t have been, she frowned right back at him, putting her wet hands on her hips. “Did I ask you to come in here and criticize how I cook? You don’t seem to be suffering any, considering how you devour the results!”

The only response he gave her was a raised eyebrow as he stared at her hands, and then at the faucet. Sheepishly, she returned her palms to where he wanted them to be, hating the fact that he was right about how the cool water soothed them.

Rourke swatted her behind sharply, saying firmly. “Leave them there until I tell you you’re allowed take them out.” Then he turned and left, and she could hear his boots stomping down the hall to the bathroom.

She knew she should have protested, loudly, at the way he ordered her around, but he’d been doing it since moments after they’d first met, so she was used to it. She shouldn’t have let him be so dominant and bossy, although that seemed to be his normal state of mind. Allowing that kind of behavior in a man to flourish unchecked was what had gotten her into the situation she was in right now. But, despite the fact that Rourke Danville towered over her from some ridiculous height and was impossibly large, she’d never once felt the least bit threatened by him.

In fact, it was always � even from the first time they’d met � just exactly the opposite. She’d come to Los Lunas at the behest of a good friend who was a police officer in the town where she and Mark had lived. Kerri had helped Skye get away from Mark to Los Lunas, and had sent her, first thing, to check in with her friend at the police department there, Kevin Raines.

Skye had arrived on the doorstep of the combination Police Department Town Hall Court House after a twelve hour, nearly nonstop drive, and she was certain she looked the worse for the wear. She knew her hair was a mess, she was in a beat up old pink jogging suit, and that she still wore both dark bruises Mark had given her � the one along her jaw and the other blackened ring under her eye.

But she didn’t care. She locked the car that contained what few worldly possessions she’d been able to gather from the house, took a deep breath, and walked up the steps into the forbidding building, stopping at the receptionist for directions to Kevin’s desk.

Both of the men stood as she approached, and she wasn’t at all used to that. Did men still do that nowadays? Apparently so, in small southern towns. She stared at the one who had been sitting behind the desk, hoping against hope that he was her landlord, but knowing she was going to be wrong. “Kevin?”

His face lit up, and she knew she was right. “You must be Skye! It’s very nice to meet you.”

“It’s nice to meet you, too.”

Kevin turned to the other man, the one she’d already decided on sight that she’d prefer not have to deal with on a monthly � or even more frequent, Heaven forbid � basis, and introduced him. “Skye Sommers, this is Rourke Danville. It’s his place you’ll be staying at. He’s... well, we kind of tap him to do some police work for us around here at times, and he’s ex-Special Forces, so you’ll be very well looked after.”

Skye wanted to refuse to shake his hand outright, but she knew she couldn’t, especially since he was apparently voluntarily going out of his way to help her. Her small hand was lost in his, and she knew he was keeping his strength at bay as they shook. Her eyes skittered to his, and she would have sworn that she could see a muscle ticking in his clenched jaw as he looked down at her; he looked absolutely furious. It was then that she realized that he was staring at her bruises, and she couldn’t keep herself from bringing her free hand up to her jaw self-consciously.

She retrieved the hand he still claimed as quickly as was humanly possible, probably a little more quickly than would have been considered polite, but then the way he was staring at her spooked her a bit. He looked hard. Unflinching. Dangerous and... she couldn’t get the word out of her mind � deadly. It made her think she was glad she wasn’t Mark, if he decided to come after her while she was under his protection, whatever that meant.

But she had to admit, she didn’t feel any kind of greasy, leering, slimy vibe from him at all. She hadn’t from Mark, either, though, at first, although Mark also wouldn’t have been caught dead putting himself out for a stranger, either.

The two men sat, Rourke vacating his own seat in favor of commandeering one from in front of the desk next to Kevin’s, but he leaned away from her, and she couldn’t feel his eyes on her at all any more, much less leering at her, as Mark had distinct tendency to do.

Skye cleared her throat uneasily, saying, “Well, I appreciate what the two of you are doing for me enormously.”

Kevin chuckled. “Kerri’s saved my bacon so many times that this is a drop in the proverbial bucket.”

The big man reached into his pocket and produced a set of keys, carefully laying them on Kevin’s desk and pushing them towards her, instead of offering them to her directly. “These are keys to the front and back doors of the house. Kevin and I will be the only two other people who have copies of these keys. It’s furnished, but you can feel free to decorate any way you like. It’s not a new property, though, so it comes with some idiosyncrasies. Whenever you’re ready, I’ll take you out to it and show you around.”

Skye stood. “I’m ready now, unless there’s something else I need to do.”

The men stood, too, as soon as she did. “No, I don’t believe so,” Kevin said, shaking her hand again. “I have a description of Mercer, and there’s an all points bulletin out on him county wide. But if he contacts you, though, let us know as soon as possible.”

That thought sent a shudder through her that she was humiliated to realize that neither of them could have missed. But Skye straightened her shoulders and mustered a smile for Kevin, still not really able to meet the intense gaze of the giant standing next to her, who forcefully scrunched a well-worn cowboy hat down onto his head and motioned for her to go ahead of him.

Without thinking, she did as he bade, walking to her small beat up Nissan as he made his way to his huge, beat up Dodge truck. “I’ll try to go slow. If I lose you, just stay put. I’ll come back for you.”

Skye nodded, sinking gratefully into the driver’s seat, well away from him, wishing she wasn’t such a coward.

Rourke was launching himself into the cab of his truck at the same time, wishing he had something nearby that he could put his fist through. The sight of such a small woman who had taken such a beating made him want to murder the weasel that had done it to her. And he had the training to accomplish that goal, in many unique and extremely painful ways.

He could only hope the asshole gave him the chance.

* * *

She didn’t get lost, he had to give her that. She stayed tight on his tail, much the way he’d known he wanted to stay on hers from the moment he’d seen her. But he knew that he needed to tamp down the instant attraction he’d felt for her. Perhaps it was no more than the usual over protectiveness he felt towards most women, but he thought not. His pants hadn’t been quite that tight over that portion of his anatomy in quite some time, and they’d been that way from the moment she’d appeared, looking entirely too delicate in that faded pink jogging suit and wearing the vivid the scars of having paid a considerable price for having made a very bad choice in men.

As far as he was concerned, there were a large percentage of men on the planet who didn’t deserve the companionship of a female. He wouldn’t even need five minutes to dispense with Mark Mercer, or any man who had raised his hand to a woman in anger. To Rourke, they were the lowest of the low, and he wouldn’t hesitate to grind them into the ground under his boot.

The house he was going to rent to her was actually the original place his grandfather had built when his grandparents had arrived here from Scotland. There wasn’t much to it, but it should be perfect for her, and it was on his property, which he kept very well secured for his own reasons.

He stopped in front of the house and she pulled into the driveway, getting out to pop the trunk and reach for a small suitcase as well as a couple of garbage bags.

“Put them down,” he ordered as he walked towards her, his boots crunching on the gravel.

She’d heard him, but Skye was used to doing for herself, so she got everything in one swipe, even managing to shut the trunk herself with her elbow.

When he finally sauntered up at her, he was already frowning at having been summarily ignored. He reached out and relieved her of her burdens, taking them all into one hand, and turned to walk to the door without another word. “Next time you ignore what I say, I’m going to take you over my knee and spank you.”

He may have been taking what little she’d been able retrieve of her belongings into a house that he owned, but she was standing stock still in the walkway to the house, having a truly epic battle with herself.

There had been a time when what he’d just said would have sent a shiver up her spine � and to other very interested parts of her anatomy. She’d always found spanking � and frankly much more well beyond that - very titillating and, thanks to the internet, she’d been able to explore those areas quite thoroughly. But now, considering what had happened with Mark, she was torn. How could her body still want that from a man? She had to keep herself safe, first and foremost, and keep her libido completely in check. She couldn’t risk her life again just for a sexual thrill.

And she was not going into a house with someone who had just physically threatened her, after having known her for all of � she checked her watch � fifteen minutes. What the hell was it about her that she seemed to attract that kind of man? Was she wearing some kind of sign or something? Did she put out some kind of vibe?

It took him a long minute to realize that she wasn’t behind him. He’d already gone into the house and begun his spiel about how cantankerous the water heater could be � and how he’d come put in a new one as soon as he got a chance � and how the roof might leak if they got a bad storm, but that he’d add that to his list, too.

But when he turned to show her how to bump her hip against the dishwasher to start it, since the knob was missing, she wasn’t there.

Instead, when he found her standing outside, he saw that she was on her cell phone, and there was no missing what she was saying.

“And I just told you that I’m not going into a house with a man who just threatened to spank me! In fact, I’m not going to rent a house from a man who threatened to spank me, either. There’s got to be someone else in this God forsaken town...”

Skye had been facing the road, but when she turned around he was standing right next to her, and she’d never even heard him walk up behind her. That wasn’t good. Not good at all. And his hand was out, rather imperiously, too, as if he expected her to just hand over her phone.

She couldn’t hear what Kevin was saying. Her mind much preferred, despite her objections, to listen to what Rourke as saying, especially when he said it in that low, slow but firm rumble. Why hadn’t she noticed that his voice was so damned sexy? “You’re going to get Kevin all upset about nothing. If you just do as you’re told, you’ll never get spanked.” They could both hear Kevin chuckling at that remark, but Kevin also knew that Rourke never issued a threat � or a bet � he couldn’t cover.

But she refused to be distracted � well, for more than a moment or two, anyway. Skye was so angry she forgot to be scared of him, and stared right straight at him, still holding onto the phone. “Yes, he’s got his hand out, like he’s the lord of all he surveys or something equally as draconian. I think he wants to talk to you.”

Kevin tried to placate her as much as he could from his desk, and impart to her through is voice that everything he was saying was the absolute truth. “Listen, Skye, I know you don’t know either of us from a hole in the ground, but Kerrie trusts the both of us with your safety, and you obviously trust Kerrie. I can personally vouch for your physical safety when you’re with Rourke. If anyone can keep you safe, it’s him. If I needed a bodyguard, he’s the first person I’d call.” He very carefully hadn’t said anything about the fact that, if Rourke thought she needed it, she’d end up with a very sore rear end, but that was none of his business, and far from constituting abuse, in his book. He knew Rourke would die before he’d ever physically abuse anyone he considered to be physically weaker than himself, and, in truth, Kevin had seen Rourke risk his own life, time and again, to save people, even those that he might not have thought were worth saving.

What Kevin had said did go a long way towards making her feel better about him, overall. “Okay, but his hand’s still out.”

“So hand him the phone.”

But her back was still up, and he had threatened to spank her! Didn’t anyone around here see a problem with that? “I don’t want to hand him the phone. It’s my fucking phone �“

She heard a short sigh, and before she knew it, he’d caught her up against him and she’d been swatted twice on the rear end � and not play swats, by any means. They made her want to yelp, but she squelched the impulse. The entirety of her bottom stung all at once, and, almost worse than that, her face flushed so red from the fierce embarrassment at his treatment of her � and the ease with which he’d accomplished it - that she thought she was going to pass out. Especially considering that he didn’t stop there, and let her loose so that she could crawl into her car and drive away, never to darken his doorstep again, preferably.

After delivering those terrible smacks to parts he should � by all right � have had no access to, he did something sneaky, and obviously part of his military training - that had her divested of her phone and her clamped obscenely up against him again � breast to thigh - in a matter of seconds.

“Kevin, don’t worry about Skye. I’ll finish getting her settled in and give you a call when I get home.” He closed the phone and tucked it � slowly, as if he was relishing the act - into her back pocket, tucking it against the butt he’d just swatted. Skye tried to struggle out of his hold and immediately discovered that she wasn’t going anywhere until he decided she could, and that only served to infuriate her just that much more. She tried to kick his shins, and ended up with her legs spread so wide that she had no choice but to lean her lower body against his for balance, but found that it was hard to balance oneself on a rigid, denim covered spike.

She couldn’t even recoil from the intimate contact because Rourke held her in place with one big hand, holding both of her wrists pinned in place, and tipped his hat back with the other hand, sighing heavily. “Look, little miss �“

Skye’s eyes blazed angrily up at his. “I’m not your little miss!” She should have been worried about making this huge, amazingly strong man angry, but common sense had never been her strong suit. If it had been, she probably wouldn’t have ended up in East Bumfuck, Texas.

He didn’t look angry right now. He looked... tender, for wont of a better word. The backs of his fingers stroked her jaw and beside her eye, making her chin drop, wanting to disappear into the ground from the shame.

She was almost beginning to think he might even be human, and then he went and ruined it by saying, “I meant what I said. As long as you obey me, I’ll never need to spank you.”

With that obnoxious statement, he let her go, and this time she realized she didn’t have much choice but to follow him into the God damned house.

It was him or Mark, and of the two, even though she’d only known him for a matter of minutes, she’d take the ever annoying Rourke, hands down, every time.

And even now, as her hands began to turn to ice blocks under the cold spring water, she realized she’d made the right choice, although she knew if something happened to him � or to Kevin, of course � that she’d regret it to her dying day.

He reappeared with triple antibiotic cream, bandages, and a towel, which Sky thought was a bit of overkill, but if he was willing to do it, she guessed it was fine with her.

“All right, you may turn off the water now. Let me see your hands.”

She noticed how he’d used “may” is in “giving permission” instead of “can” as in “physically able”. He seemed to come by being a dom very naturally. She reached for the towel to dry off her hands, but he refused to give it to her, instead proceeded to care for her entirely himself, from the drying to the bandaging. It was her ring and pinky fingers on each hand that had taken the brunt of the burns, so he bandaged them together, and Skye had to admit that she was impressed at how gentle he was.

So this is a classic knight in shinning armor story that involves swooping in and taking care of a damsel in distress over the very real danger a violent ex poses. It's always interesting to see how a woman from a past abusive relationship accepts domestic discipline.

I am not finished with this book yet, and i may never finish it. This is what bothers me about books like this: The guy falls in love with the girl because of how she is, but then decides to change her to what he wants her to be, which doesn't make sense. She is feisty, is her own woman and ready to go ahead with her life. Half way through, she cannot even sneeze without him telling her it's okay. She can only cum, when he says (i get that), but he denies her this. He beats her for the slightest infraction, how is that different than what she just came from. I get the submission part, but sometimes it's too much. If this is what she wants, than make it out to be this way, not that she researched it on line. He is changing her to what he wants, whether she wants it or not. It makes me cringe.

OMG! I loved this book. CF has done it again. Some of the spankings and other punishments were very harsh but Sky thrived with them. Rourke was so in love with Sky and she with him. What a great read.

The relationship seemed somewhat overdone, but I appreciated how much the main couple fit together in their needs and desires. Carolyn Faulkner books are almost always a good read.

Another great book by CF. Skye is hiding out on Rourkes ranch because of a psycho ex. Rourke believes in a hands on approach in his relationships. What transpires next is pure gold. There is plenty of drama, angst and sex to go around. This is a great book and if I could I would rate it higher.

I would let Rourke take care of me anytime. Skye is very lucky to have such a strong and caring man step in to take care of her. Deep down isn't that what every woman wants?

I liked this story a lot in the beginning - but after awhile I had trouble sticking with the book to finish reading it. The plot seemed choppy at times - that might be because the book was two smaller books before that were combined. I really enjoy a long book which this was- and in general Faulkner is a great author who writes about spanking, BDSM, and all matters kinky in a wonderful way. I like the story line in this book as well - it is worth reading - but not my favorite work done by Faulkner.

Another winner! This military man finds it easy to protect and love his tenant who is running from an abusive ex. She learns the hard way to trust the man determined to protect her.

Very good story and one I really enjoyed. Rourke was definitly a harsh man at times but he tempered it wth showing just how he cared and how far he was willing to go to protect Skye.

This was excellent. I agree with many of the other reviewers that Rourke was quite harsh at times, but that is something that I really enjoy, so this story was perfect for me. And he was also devoted to her and protected her, which I found really sweet.

Skye's Submission was great it followed Carolyn Faulkner's famous Dominating Alpha mix that is common in so many of her books. I enjoyed this book because not only did it have a good plot but the spankings were a little bit harsher than in a lot of spanking books and from time to time its a nice change to see in these stories.

This one was ok, a fairly enjoyable read. I found the Rourke and Skye characters had nice chemistry and though he was definitely harsh you could feel his emotions and deep love for her. I may not have always agreed with his reasoning but he had reasons and she was always clear about why he was being so harsh with her. Not as engaging as some of her other works but a good story overall.

Skye's submission was not for me, I really could not get my head around the male character depriving her of pleasure and only allowing himself to receive pleasure. These books are hard for me to grasp and understand, but I suppose it's just not for me.

A great story of finding love in the midst of chaos and some horrible circumstances. Ms. Faulkner has woven a tale of strong independent people that find each other needing the other more than life itself. You will find yourself not wanting to stop reading until The End is on the last page.

Another good read from Ms. Faulkner! My only criticism is that Skye, the heroine, never really developed fully as a character or as strong submissive which is what I expected would happen.

Well, Carolyn does it again. Love her stories--basically love her tough BDSM view. Keep these kind coming. Her light, spanking only, stories I think a bit silly. This one was very good; however, one BIG error that I find annoying, and don't usually find annoying mistakes in her stories--but: in one scene Skye is asked to disrobe, fold her clothes (including poka dot underwear) and put in a drawer, which she does--the problem is in the same scene a few pages later he is telling her to remove her pink underwear. This is when I think I've missed something so have to check; but, no, same scene--big mistake. Another mistake is a character is called Joseph Carey--then, later, called Jonathan Carey--so, I have to check to see if it is a different character or the same--the same! I don't usually find these kinds of errors in Carolyn's stories; but are abundant in others whereby I NEVER buy their books again. However, since this is rare, she is still my favorite author. Highly recommend this story.

I was really looking forward to reading this book. I did read it straight through and liked the story and the love connection the couple had. Dd really interests me....but this was more of a slave bondage story. Lots of spanking for any reason. I thought the punishments were to much but Skye didn't seem to mind. Lol

This is definitly one of my favorites by CF as it has a good villian and great alpha male who knows just how to protect what is his. Even though Rourke was strict he did it in a way that you could how much he cared and was just looking out for sky's best interests. Very good book and highly recommeneded.

This book has more of an edge than most DD books. It holds with C.F's wonderful ability to combine sex and DD with a harsher edge and still keep the love and affection in a way that few can.

Wow! Hot! Hot! Hot! I've reread this book so many times and I love it more each time. Skye is coming out of an abusive relationship and Rourke is just the alpha to help her heal. Delved into bdsm and had LOTS of hot spanking scenes. Some were harsh, but you could see the love that Rourke and Skye have for each other. This book as a little of everything, from stalkers and gun fights to bdsm and lots of romance. Defiantly a keeper!

I really loved this story because not only did it have a couple good villians but Rouke was an an extremely good alpha male. He never took Skye for granted and you could see how much these two loved and wanted what was best for the other. The spankings scenes were hot and definitly plentiful.

I read this book a while back, when it was Spanking Romance. The story is very good, with action and intrigue. It ends up being a little more S/M than spanking romance, and I don't always like Carolyn Faulkner's severe discipline scenes, but the heroine, Sky, enjoyed them and was very happy with them, so who am I to judge? As always, a very well written story by Carolyn Faulkner.

This was a very good, long story! I like it when the characters have time to really develop. The story here is of a very dominant man doing his utmost to keep the one he loves safe. And he really, really takes it to some extremes! Pretty harsh sometimes, but a very good read.

This story is a keeper . The heroine is an abused woman on the run from a stalker. The hero is a tough, rough mean cowboy who knows how to look after those placed in his care , her. The story does take me out of my comfort zone but Ms faulkner is really good at that with a lot of her stories.

This book takes a little time to grow on you. After reading it for the second time I can say that somehow it got better. I think the problem for me may have been that their relationship started too quickly and because of her past history it was a little disturbing. But reading it the second time around I had the benefit of knowing Rourke's character well enough to be able to relax and enjoy the story.

Rourke was tab bit obsessive for my taste. But the story was definitely more of BDSM than domestic discipline. I liked the story line and the character development of Skye and Rourke. Overall I enjoyed it a lot.

This book is very obviously written as three separate books. I found the three threats that are the plots of the stories, to be very redundant with the same outcome each time. I also found it very strange that the cabin that he won't tell her the location of because the fewer people that knew it, the better hold he had on security, is listed in public records under his family’s name. That is not something an ex-Special Forces person would do. This is a decent story but definitely not one of my Carolyn Faulkner favorites.

The title of this story is: Sky's Submission. This lends itself easily to the idea that the story will involve the lengthy process of getting a feisty proud women into the submissive state. However, it turns out that Sky is already extremely submissive and learns quickly to love and need the strict discipline that Alpha Rourke is only to happy to supply. I felt that was a small let down since there was absolutely no challenge for Rourke whatsoever. The story centered more on Rourke protecting Skye 3 times from 2 different threats.
There was able bondage scenes but the worst bondage for me was the orgasm control. Rourke was able to satisfy his lust any way and any time and delighted leaving poor Skye whimpering with need. Skye had to earn her release and received it very few times.

Carolyn is always one of my favorites. In this one Skye escapes an abusive boyfriend to a small town in Texas where the sheriffis a friend of a friend and will protect her with Rourke's help. Rourke has enemies of his own and thus goes the dangerous liason. Has some bondage scenes while not my favorite thing are well written
