Wilmington, Delaware - Present Day

Julie Masterson is attracted to Daniel Covington the first time she meets him, and when he asks her out, she's happy to agree.  Though their date ends abruptly, the night is fantastic, and she can't wait to see him again, in spite of her friend Sasha's assertion that Daniel and Julie aren't compatible. There's just something about Daniel that gets to her on every level, and suddenly he's the man appearing in all of her fantasies even the ones she does her best to ignore.  When Julie realizes that Daniel is a Dom, the curiosity that she's long denied gets the better of her, and she agrees to submit to him.

It has been awhile since Daniel has been in any sort of relationship, but Julie draws him in.  Some of the signals she sends lead him to think she may be sexually submissive, but he's learned its best to assume the opposite.  When she lets him know that she's interested in exploring a BDSM relationship, it's the best news he's had in some time.  Julie is everything Daniel could want in a relationship, and the more time they spend together, the harder the both of them fall. But then something happens that tests not only their relationship, but even Julie's decision to submit.  Can Daniel prove to her that the relationship that was building between them is something worth fighting for?

As the first in the new Partners in Play series, SEDUCED BY FIRE introduces readers to flower shop owners Julie and Sasha, as well as bank vice president Daniel and his friends.  Julie has wondered about BDSM in the past but hasn't been brave enough to do anything about it.  Even before realizing that Daniel is a Dom she wants to get to know him better, and he feels the same way about Julie even though he thinks she's not into the same kind of games he is.  While Daniel is an experienced Dom, this novel is as much an exploration for him as it is for Julie who is finally admitting her true desires.

SEDUCED BY FIRE doesn't focus solely on the sex between Daniel and Julie, but also the emotions and needs that drive each of them to the BDSM lifestyle, as well as the more romantic aspects of their relationship.  Julie also gets some of her questions answered by her friend, Sasha, as well as Dena, a sub who occasionally mentors those new to the lifestyle.  There are a few hints about issues each woman is having in her own personal life that will tease readers with the possibility of these characters getting stories of their own in the future.

A sexy and surprisingly sweet romance, check out SEDUCED BY FIRE.
