Including staging an elaborate kidnapping that Gia believes is real. Ivan is instantly drawn to Gia and he wants to be the best Master she's ever had.

However, Ivan sets a plan into motion that will push Gia to all of her limits and take her on a global journey of self-discovery, extreme pleasure, and love.
Warning: Contains Erotic Spanking, Subspace, f/f situations, a devastatingly sexy Dom who knows what he wants, and a submissive who just might be ready to give him what he needs.
Ann Mayburn has definitely outdid herself. I just love reading all of her books. They are just great and yummy! Ivan Ershov, a representative from the European BDSM delegation, has a fondness for role playing so when he views Gina Lopez's information and fantasies he decides she is to be his. Staging an elaborate capture fantasy scenario, Ivan sets in motion a week that Gina will never forget. Gina is a relatively new submissive in the BDSM lifestyle and can't believe her luck when she's chosen to participate in an exclusive BDSM Club's charity auction. She resolves to make her new Master proud and be on her best behavior. That is until she's kidnapped by his bodyguard who plans to keep her as HIS hostage and submissive until a hefty ransom is paid. This role playing was very elaborate that Gia actually fear her life, however, everything turn around when she runs away and Ivan found her, which he explain the whole thing was role playing in his part. That scene was very loving and funny especially since Gia deck another man part. A major aspect of this read is of course the BDSM scenes. I kept wondering what type of warning label would be appropriate as things do get really down and dirty with a good dose of smutty smut. The good kind. The kind that has you glued to your e reader enjoying as scene after scene. There are m/f, m/f/f, and f/f scenes that do push the envelope, never crossing into the taboo but teases the reader regardless. There is a natural flow to the story that pulled me in as a willing voyeur who supported and enjoyed the events as they played out. This story is a must read since it has it all! I love it!
