For as long as she could remember, Becca dreamed of a dominant man to take her in hand, and Zac, the handsome Marine she met at her sister's wedding, filled the role with aplomb… for a weekend. Then the fling came to an end, Zac went off to war and died for his country, and Becca learned she carried a child who would be born without a father.
Seven years later, Becca has done her best to move on and forget about Zac… until the day she walks into her kitchen to find the man she believed she would never see again locked in mortal combat with her son’s nanny, and realizes everything she thought she knew about Zac was a lie.
Like all Black Ops agents, Zac doesn't exist in any government record. His life is a series of deadly missions, and relationships of any kind are unsanctioned. But he keeps one secret. He watches over Becca, the beautiful daughter of a rogue agent, and Parker, the six-year-old boy he fathered that fateful weekend. When he spots a known assassin in their apartment posing as a nanny, he's forced to reveal himself and take them to safety… whether Becca likes it or not.
While Becca may have enjoyed his dominance once, bending her to his will again may not be quite so easy. He is determined to keep her safe, however, and if a long, hard spanking is required, he is more than willing to oblige. Having Becca over his knee rekindles more than his passion, though; even when the immediate danger has passed, he finds it much more difficult to “ghost out” on his family again. Must he resign himself to protecting those he loves from afar, or can he find a way to be the man Becca needs and longs for, the man who is worthy of her submission and her love?
Romantic Suspense meets Spanking Romance. It was like peanut butter and chocolate, an absolutely indulgently delicious combination. The suspense was just that, suspenseful, with the right amount of twists to keep readers on the edge of their seats until that final scene. But all the way through the book, there's this amazing love story between two people who took an alternative route to their HEA. It was unique and beautiful as the book explored the dynamics of domestic discipline. The author smoothly used the conversations to explain dd to those unfamiliar with the lifestyle but eased it in enough so as not to feel like a user's manual. The balance in all elements was simply perfect and as hard to resist as a peanut butter cup. Yummy!
Publisher’s Note: Safe in His Arms is an erotic romance novel that includes both consensual and non-consensual spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
I just had to post this "Publisher's Note" because its hysterical to a reader who would buy a book simply BECAUSE it has some of these features. I read that note and think hell yeah! ;-)
