Can a woman wedded to staying in control risk giving it up?

Taylor Hamilton lives for her successful career. It’s the one thing she can control and she does it very well. She has no room in her life for anything else, especially messy personal relationships.

Adam Kirliss has had his eye on Taylor for some time—and has utterly failed at catching hers. Until he takes advantage of a wild night on a yacht, handcuffing her to the rail in the dark, and demonstrating just how distracting he can be.

Much as Taylor attempts to deny that she loved how Adam made her feel, she can’t resist the challenge he issues: a date, where she follows all of his rules. After experiencing exquisite pain and pleasure at Adam’s hands, Taylor discovers that the real danger is to her heart.

Torn between control and fulfillment, Taylor wrestles with offering the deepest intimacy of all…
