Julia has never met a man who can keep up with her sexual needs. Alex has never met a woman he couldn’t conquer and control. Sparks fly when Julia moves to Primeval Lake.Inside Scoop: Contains exhibition scenes and a very light female/female encounter.
To fulfill the terms of her grandfather’s will, Julia must live at the lake for a year. Alex wants to help her survive—in exchange for Julia’s surrender. He wants to subdue and dominate her. He won’t accept anything less than her full consent for any sexual game he might like to play.
Julia fears giving any man that much control. She’s been disappointed before, why should she believe Alex is different? Complicating her decision, Alex wants to buy her cabin. Its purchase would give him complete control of the lake.
Does Alex really want Julia or just her cabin? As Julia wrestles with this question, Alex decides he can’t wait any longer and forces Julia to face her fears and make a decision.
A Romantica® BDSM erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Primeval Lake is a place I would love an invitation to. It is a place of freedom, a place of dreams, of playtime, dominance and submission. Though a bit to the extreme – multiple extreme orgasms she is unable to control for over a decade no matter the situation (church/grocery store) for our heroine and sexual excesses to a fantastic level – this is an invitation many I know would love to have.
Julia is thrown into the mix when her grandfather dies and in order to receive her inheritance she has to live at the lake in his cabin for one year. Alex is the clearly extremely wealthy owner of his own version of a mini town ala Marquis de Sade.
The author has either done some serious time interviewing a great many people and investing time and energy into seeing clubs, learning about contracts and toys or has actually lived in the BDSM lifestyle. I’d be inclined to say the latter. The feel of the toys, what to use when, how they can make you feel, how voyeurism works in a dungeon, even what a dungeon monitor does (though the author doesn’t call them this) are all things you learn over time in a living, breathing BDSM community.
My favorite part is when Julia asks what it feels like to be a submissive because it is very true. When you have already done the negotiations, have built the trust that your dominant will never let anything bad happen to you, that he/she desires the absolute best for you – you can relax. You don’t have to be in control – He is. You don’t have to worry – He is protecting and taking care of you. Nothing will happen to you because you have ultimate control – you can always say your safe word or call “Red” and whatever was going on ends. There is no greater power than handing over yours and trusting your wellbeing to another – because without submission there is no dominance just domineering.
(Julia swallowed hard. “What does it feel like to be a sub?”
“Aren’t you a sub too? Hasn’t Alex taught you that?”
“Oh you must be so disappointed.”
Charlene laughed. “Being a sub is the best thing I’ve ever experienced. I don’t have to worry about anything. I’ve never known such a sense of freedom.”
“But you have no control.”
“No, I don’t have control. Isn’t it wonderful?” )
