One master, one woman who craves surrender, and a sky that will challenge them both.
At a time when airplanes are as new-fangled and sensational as the telephone, Faith dares to fly. The one territory she has not explored is her own sexuality. In Leonhardt she discovers the man who can teach her how a woman surrenders her body and her mind. However, Leonhardt has a shadowed past and his own learning to do. He doesn’t have the right to keep Faith from flying, even if he thinks airplanes are flimsy death-traps made of canvas, timber and their inventor’s prayers.
Faith has her limits, Leonhardt has his flaws, and sometimes the nicest people get murdered by unscrupulous bastards. Even if Leonhardt can save the woman he loves, the battle for Faith’s heart will be the hardest one of all.
WARNING: BDSM, anal sex, orgasms galore, and a Dom who likes to claim his property with pen, ink and bondage.
Rough Surrender, a historical romance, is set in the early 1910’s in Cairo. Faith Evard is one of first female pilots in the world, strong in her beliefs, quick with her witty tongue and living for flying her Bleriot in the skies over Egypt. Just having arrived from Paris, she is introduced to Leonhardt Meissner, an engineer working in Cairo. He is immediately enamored and enthralled by Faith. Although Faith had long since decided that she would die a spinster and that no man would want a woman so bold and dominant as she, the titillating flirtations abound. Leonhardt slowly, methodically, mouthwatering and with panty-drenching detail teaches Faith the ways of his unusual sexual appetites. As she is only in Cairo for 10 days, and certainly not one for missing the opportunity for an adventure, Faith finds she enjoys submission. While the sparks continue to fly between the couple, murder is afoot in Cairo, and little to Faith’s knowledge, she is much closer to the killer than she knows.
