Here's the blurb: After her fear of commitment brings an abrupt end to yet another relationship, Crystal Harman knows she is in desperate need of a major change in her life. With the help of her best friend, that change comes in the form of Donaven Sharp, the ruggedly gorgeous owner of a remote mountain retreat called Cobalt Canyon.
Donaven soon realizes that what Crystal has needed for a long time is a dominant man to spank her properly and take control both in and out of the bedroom, and he doesn’t hesitate to put her over his knee for her first bare-bottom spanking. Though it leaves her blushing, Donaven’s mastery of her body also leaves Crystal all but trembling with desire, and his forceful, demanding lovemaking brings her pleasure like nothing she has ever experienced before.
Donaven is everything she’s ever wanted in a man—someone who will both take care of her and discipline her when she needs it—but Crystal struggles to reconcile her yearning to submit to him with the demands of her career as a social worker protecting vulnerable women. When tragedy strikes one of her clients and guilt sends her life into a tailspin, can Donaven prove to Crystal that they have a future together and she belongs not only in his bed but also at his side?

And now for the excerpt: “Honey, I think work is going to be the last thing on your mind. Especially after you see D’s new toy,” Jake said, a curious smile on his lips. “Capi has taken quite an interest in it and D is always happy to oblige.”
Crystal stiffened at the word ‘toy,’ assuming it was something kinky. She had no plans of engaging in anything kinky this weekend. She’d agreed to come as an observer only, to learn more about the BDSM lifestyle and meet a few kink-friendly people. She looked at Ivy with obvious concern.
Ivy let out a little laugh. “I’m sure it’s not that kind of toy.”
This made Jake chuckle and Crystal felt her cheeks warming, having jumped to conclusions.
“Look whose mind is in the gutter. It’s a paraglide,” he said, snickering. “I hope you’re not afraid of heights,” He turned, addressing Ivy. “I’ve gone tandem with him a few times. Jeff and I plan to take a training course this year so we can go solo. I’ll probably end up getting my own glider. The feeling while you’re in flight is out of this world! The weather is supposed to be good this weekend, so I’m sure D will try talking both of you into a short flight.”
“I did a tandem parachute jump once in Colorado,” Ivy said enthusiastically. “Remember that, Crystal? The big college trip you wouldn’t go on because of Steven. You missed out on an amazing experience.”
“How could I forget. You wouldn’t stop talking about how you…” Crystal paused, unable to finish the sentence with Jake present.
“How I had the most amazing orgasm of my life on the way down?” Her face beamed the same way it had back in the dorm when she first told Crystal about her jump.
“You never told me about that,” Jake said, flashing Ivy a look of surprise. “I’ve heard it does happen to some women. Does it still hold the record for best orgasm ever?”
A pink hue spread across Ivy’s face along with a bubbly grin as she started to tell him the whole story. Crystal knew it by heart and put her head against the window, closing her eyes as Ivy babbled on about first how hot the instructor was, even though he was in his thirties, and then about the sudden and almost instant orgasm she experienced not long after they jumped. It freaked her out and thrilled her both at the same time, but the best part was she had no control of it. She couldn’t have stopped it from happening if she tried.
“I couldn’t stop screaming that I was coming,” Ivy said, followed by a lighthearted laugh. “It embarrassed the hell out of me, but I didn’t care at the time. I’d say that day and the day you had me tied up against the wall and used the violet wand on me are about equal with each other for best orgasm ever.”
“Equal, huh?” Jake huffed. “We’ll have to see if we can’t do something about that this weekend.”
