Annalee Parschen is devastated when she discovers her soon-to-be ex-fiance has been having a secret BDSM tryst with her best friend. Crushed, she wonders how anyone could find a sexual thrill in punishment or submission. Then she’s reunited with Brent Delaney, a former coworker who still ignites her flame. Though they’ve never had sex, she’s taken him home in her fantasies countless times. Turns out he’s been wanting to take her home too. And he has a thing or two to teach her about finding pleasure in submission. Brent is now a private sea fighter who guards his employer’s ships from piracy in the China Sea. Returning to the States after a daring ocean rescue, he’s thrilled to be reunited with Annalee, even more so when he gets to introduce her to his dominant side. Unfortunately the murderous pirate he put behind bars has escaped and he’s seeking revenge-against Brent, and anyone he loves.
