Laura Mays née Vasquez was married to a man who has ties to an international ring of thieves. When he is murdered, she wants to feel like she has some breathing room. But Laura knows it is only a matter of time before someone else tries to step in and fill her husband's shoes.
Thirteen years ago, Shane Dominic loved Laura and felt as if she was his whole world. One day they were lovers and the next she was eloping with Huey Mays. He has never gotten over her betrayal and now that her husband is dead, he refuses to wait any longer to hear what she has to say.
Laura wants to trust Shane. After all, he is a special agent and a darn good one at that. But there are secrets that she has kept for thirteen long years that can never be revealed. Shane is tired of the excuses and the attitude he is getting from Laura, so he kidnaps her and takes her to a remote location. He swears he will get the answers out of her in any way he can, not realizing that with each passing day Laura comes closer and closer to death.
Sweet Restraint is such a mind-boggling book! Even with all the sensual and hot sex that was in this novel, the mystery surrounding Laura was so incredible that this book was just sensational. Sometimes you can read a book that tries to be both sexually charged and a thriller, but the sex just seems to get in the way of the plot. Even with the alpha male type that Shane is, Laura has this outstanding countenance and we get to see her as this alpha female, fighting for what she believes in. With this tale, you will have absolutely no problem enjoying both the sexual escapades and the mystery and suspense, which I might add will leave you guessing until the very end.
Caution: This tale contains BDSM, spanking, anal foreplay, and anal sex.
