Julie Masterson craves a taste of danger.
Despite being familiar with the different games people play in the bedroom, she’s never given into her curiosity about putting her body in someone else’s power—until a chance meeting with Daniel Covington, the seductive Senior VP of Weston Bank, draws her into a titillating new world of sexual experience, one that she never knew she desperately needed.
Daniel is highly respected within his community, but he hasn’t had an exclusive relationship for over two years. Yet Julie’s eager innocence is driving him to the brink of ecstasy, making him rethink his feelings about commitment.
As their sizzling connection heats up, Daniel is ready to take Julie fully under his command. But when the dangerous side of their play rears its ugly head, Julie will have to decide if she trusts him enough to surrender completely—or if she should escape before she gets burned...
Far too often, much of the plot in romance novels is centered on the utter lack of communication between the romantic hero and heroine, leaving room for misunderstandings galore. Not so in Tara Sue Me's Seduced by Fire; the focus in the book shifts from issues of the partners being unable to articulate their concerns to one of self-discovery and understanding of life inside a BDSM community. Julie is a confident, experienced woman who has always been curious about her friend’s experience as a Submissive, though she hasn’t readily admitted it. As Julie finds her opening to explore, she is well complemented by Daniel, a Dominant willing and very eager to teach her the ropes, with hopes of guiding her to her true potential.
The couple meets at the flower shop co-owned by Julie and her friend, Sasha, and the attraction between Julie and Daniel is immediate. Daniel finds a way to meet up with Julie again through a charitable function, which he invites her not only to supply the flowers for but to be his plus-one, also. Sparks fly, leaving Julie and Daniel excited about what could happen between them.
