On her last night in Nevada before embarking on a yearlong veterinary internship, Scarlett Malone is celebrating—and looking for one night of incredible pleasure. But the man who draws her eye is not her usual type: He’s a cowboy whose alpha-male tendencies tempt her beyond belief. Scarlett can’t understand why she wants this man and no one else, but she’s determined to entice him to submit.
Dr. Logan Brody lives an isolated life in rural Montana, running a ranch and suppressing his submissive tendencies. Only on his occasional trips does he give into his hidden urges. He can’t deny his scorching attraction to Scarlett or that she makes him want more, but he never lets anyone break him down fully. He’s hers for one night and one night only.
But when Scarlett shows up at Logan’s door as his intern for the year, he realizes that the walls around his heart are about to crumble—and that this sexy dominant woman has no intention of letting him keep control.
Nothing causes pages to burn quite like a submissive alpha male cowboy and a Mistress determined to make him hers. Lauren Jameson’s Linger is a stunningly sexy concoction that weaves together two souls with a taste for volcanic-hot sex. Scarlett Malone is just about to leave her home for a veterinary internship. City life doesn’t teach a veterinarian all of the in’s and out’s of large animal care, and the only way to get the needed hands-on experience is to work under someone who takes care of those big animals on a day-to-day basis. This means going out into the quiet countryside of Montana and leaving the hustle and bustle of city life behind.
Before Scarlett leaves for a year, she takes one more night to fulfill her sexual desires. A rich friend of hers owns one of the hottest BDSM clubs in the area; she has trained to be a Mistress and has more than her share of fans. That final night, Scarlett enters the club to see a man that she has to have. A tall cowboy with a beautiful body—a cowboy who may very well be a Master himself—immediately catches her attention. Scarlett is in luck: her cowboy is a submissive, if an alpha one, and the challenge he will provide her is just what she needs.
