Two lost souls, one powerful connection. As a Dom for Club Moon, Nick Santos uses bondage to alleviate his anger at being forcefully changed. And when he meets Gwen Waters, his carefully controlled world is turned upside-down. Through her, he'll learn what true self-control is and that being a vampire has its benefits.
Freshly divorced from an abusive ex-husband, Gwen doesn't want another domineering man. But when she meets Nick, a world she only fantasized about is laid before her. Can she trust a Dom who's also a vampire? And can Nick be the man she deserves?
Using mind control on Gwen eat s at Nick. His Sire used such tactics on him and he despised her for it. However, keeping vampires secret came first. Unless another idiot ruins his plans...
“So what made you open Artfelt Expressions?” Nick asked, distracting Gwen from her confusion.
She took a sip of wine, stalling for time. “I wanted something that was my own, that I created and brought to life.” Gwen daintily picked at her fish. “I was tired of being other people’s puppet. I wanted to be in charge of my future for once.” A wry smile came to her lips as she glanced at Nick. “Not wanting to go back to a repressed life is a great motivator.”
“Yes, it is.” Nick knew all about being under someone’s thumb and helpless to change things. And when someone was dominant, it was downright painful to endure. “Once you taste freedom, you never want to be without it again.”
“This is one of those times I could not fail.” Gwen picked up her knife. “And while Beth would be okay with me living at her house, I don’t want that, either.”
Nick watched Gwen as she delicately used the knife to sweep a mix of rice and fish onto the fork. Everything about her enthralled him; not since Clara had that happened. Under that modest dress was a body he hungered to run his mouth all over. She captivated him, and he kept falling deeper under her spell. Who was the one in control again?
