“You don’t know her? I thought you might...”
Ann Parker has been at the mercy of her vicious stepfather for years. Now he’s forcing her to marry a stranger, the coldly handsome Porter Navarro, in a week. She’s led a sheltered existence and had to develop a submissive attitude out of self-protection, but when she’s secretly made over and presented to Porter as “Violet,” she finally begins to taste liberation.
Porter Navarro is a renowned Master in some of the darkest sex clubs around the world. Initiating the fresh submissive, Violet, is an exquisite pleasure—especially when her streak of rebellion shows itself, challenging his ability to control her. The more he sees of her, the more fascinated he becomes, but she has already told him she won’t see him after he marries at the end of the week.
As the clock ticks down, the stakes heat up, and their deepest desires are exposed. Ann hopes Porter will throw over their marriage in favor of pursuing Violet, proving he has feelings for her, but what happens if her secret is exposed before then? She longs for true freedom, but it could cost not only her sensual teacher, but the man she’s grown to love…
Dani Collins grew up in Maple Ridge, a suburb of Vancouver, when it was still a small town. With a father and both grandfathers switching up between logging and fishing, she grew into a quintessential BC girl: green, natural, and impervious to rain. Despite a lot of canning and hanging of laundry in her childhood, Dani has a habit of leaping into the unknown, which she credits to her ancestor, Samuel Robertson, a boatwright from Scotland who pioneered Maple Ridge and traded furs to the Hudson’s Bay Company in Fort Langley. Given this adventurer’s blood, she’s always been drawn to stories about people braving life in faraway lands.
