This is my current work in progress. It's a contemporary romance, which is a bit of a departure for me as I usually have paranormal elements. Below is my "Blurb." I hope you enjoy it.
Mike and Beth were drawn to each other from the start. When she jumped in to protect a friend from a domestic assault, he was the cop who came to her rescue. As she heals from her brutal beating, their feelings deepen, but when they act on those feelings, something is not quite right.
He's afraid that maybe she was traumatized in the assault, so he's going slow and treating her very gently, but that's not what she wants. She's a divorced professional, but underneath her business suit, she's a trained submissive who's been without a master in her life for a while. Mike's a "protect and serve" type of cop who had an abusive father, and his whole life has been about protecting women and treating them with care and respect.
She finally admits what she needs, but he sees BDSM as kinky, over-bearing and abusive and can't see how he can ever do what she wants. She suggests he do some research, and he arranges to meet a Dominatrix who shows him how to harness his dominant side. Mike wants to please Beth, and contrary to everything he believes, when he tries it he likes how it feels, but he can't shake the fear that maybe he's like his father after all. Beth will have to help him face his fears before she can fully have his heart.
