The author has shown more debth into the characters then previously. The storyline is facinating and well written. There is some mystery, suspense, erotic sex with some mild spanking. Colleen learns how freeing submission can be and Dulcan is the master who teaches her.

I enjoyed this story with Declan and Colleen. I found Declan to be a sexy dominate man with a charming personality. Colleen has been a pawn used by her parents all her life, including picking the cheating husband, Dr. James Stuart, for her to marry. She catches him in the act and filing for divorce has her going to Ireland to the home her grandfather had, Linden Manor. What a shock to learn from the local attorney, she is there to represent the family and sale of the home, the one place that she feels she belongs. I love the plot, the deception, the domination, submission and freedom found. The dialogue was entertaining and the ending left me smiling.
