Book one in The Donovan Dynasty series

Only one man can help her. Is she willing to pay his price?

Faced with the potentially overwhelming loss of her family’s fortune, Lara Bertrand turns to the one man who can help her, the gorgeous and powerful Connor Donovan.

She knows he’s dangerous to her on every level. Only desperation would drive her to make such a risky proposition. After all, she knows all about his ruthless nature and relentless determination to succeed.

When the classy, elegant Lara walks into his office with an outrageous proposal, Connor is stunned and more than a little intrigued. Ever since he first met her, he’s been attracted to the cool beauty, but she’s more than kept her distance.

Connor is absolutely willing to help her out. For a price. He not only wants her hand in marriage, but also her total submissive surrender…

About Sierra Cartwright

EVEN racier than 50 Shades! ~ Mail Online

Sierra Cartwright was born in Manchester, England and raised in Colorado. Moving to the United States was nothing like her young imagination had concocted. She expected to see cowboys everywhere, and a covered wagon or two would have been really nice!

Now she writes novels as untamed as the Rockies, while spending a fair amount of time in Texas where, it turns out, the Texas Rangers law officers don't ride horses to roundup the bad guys, or have six-shooters strapped to their sexy thighs as she expected. And she's yet to see a poster that says Wanted: Dead or Alive. (Can you tell she has a vivid imagination?)

Sierra wrote her first book at age nine, a fanfic episode of Star Trek when she was fifteen, and she completed her first romance novel at nineteen. She actually kissed William Shatner (Captain Kirk) on the cheek once, and she says that's her biggest claim to fame. Her adventure through the turmoil of trust has taught her that love is the greatest gift. Like her image of the Old West, her writing is untamed, and nothing is off-limits.

She invites you to take a walk on the wild side but only if you dare.

    A 100% sure #MUSTread book !!!

    this will be one of the hardest book reviews that I ever done cause I ended up re-reading the book when I wanted to go through the notes and quotes from it. the book is the best cake recipe EVER put out there - you have the almost standard love story - girl likes boy, boy likes girl, both too stubborn to be honest about true feeling, enter drama and confusion. Then we add some business talk to it to make it more edgy - cause no one does business like the Donovans *hint* and where is business there is negotiations and good coffee and the sugar at the end is BDSM and its magic in the couple dynamic and finding your true self. Because, no two people are the same and so each BDSM dynamic and relationship isn't the same. Lara is sharp, real, honest, goes balls to the walls, to be honest - at first seems a bit unconscious of her own interest but at the end she was ready to make the ultimate sacrifice to help the family company cause at the end you can't just stand by and watch it turn to ruins. ~ "...Lara walked in, wearing sky-high stilettos and a pencil skirt with a matching blazer. The suit was red. Libido red. She’d likely selected her outfit carefully, believing she had chosen a power color..." Connor is a business like no other and he has it all and then SOME: he's sharp, thinks on his feat, goes for the kill when he see it but also looks at all aspects long before,he's honest, upfront and doesn't step back from what matters.And not to forget his stubbornness that is on a whole other level. ~ "...She’d found that his icy demeanor was the perfect complement to his cool, intimidating gray eyes. In spite of herself, she’d continued to watch him..." ~ The sparks between them are OFF that charts form the first moment they met, even though I need to give a shout out, cause she didn't go all fan-girl on his ass when she met him.This book made a believer out of me in the power of business negotiations - it serves the same as foreplay and believe me, its HANDS DOWN this book has the hottest and the most sizzling banter I have ever read. and I'm glad that I can report that high quality coffee plays an important role her *bows down to Sierra - now we can be friends* ~ "...She hesitated, and he waited. Finally, she tipped back her head. “When I masturbate, I think about a man’s belt.” “I think we could arrange that.” “I might hate it. It could ruin the fantasy.” “It could,” he agreed. “And it could make it even better. Anything else?” “You’re asking a lot of questions, Mr. Donovan..." ~ "...She was lace, innocence, seduction. He knew this image of her would be seared into his mind..." ~ “May I?” she asked. “Touch you?” As he leaned toward her, she lifted herself onto her toes and met him. “Wrap your arms around me, Lara.” She parted her lips in anticipation and he claimed them. The force of their kiss took him aback. He’d kissed dozens of women, but he’d never felt a searing connection..." ~ the sensual exploration if off the charts .. never before have I read the book and had a feeling that it was happening to me - while reading it. Lara gets scared out of her mind but still keeps her cool to answer with balls (UPS!!!). Once again we are reminded of the honesty and the terrifying truth of what a D/s relationship is. Sierra has managed the impossible - it can be harsh and romantic at the same time as it is captivating. in this case you can almost call it courting hahah even the romancing but instead of just wine and flowers you get a spanking bench and a single tail. ~ “As I mentioned, BDSM isn’t something I’m merely into. Kinky sex like you’re suggesting is fine. Awesome, in fact. I definitely enjoy it. I’d love to see your body spread wide, held open for me. But I see that as an extension of a relationship rather than replacing it.” “I’m a bit confused. I thought it was all about the tying up and beating.” “To some people, it is. And that’s fine. To me, it’s much, much more..." ~ Hands down the hottest spanking scene ever written. Even the legal talk about BDSM leaves you all tingly inside.nAnd the thing that I liked the most in the book, among all the other favorites is details on body language. The book just hooks you from the first page and doesn't let you go ... it seems like the more time two of them spend together, it progresses to a more natural relationship, that, at certain parts, you stare in disbelief that they are just getting started with it. They are learning that there are two sides to every story and there are two sides to every deal .. how do you not go wrong by one and remain on course with the other (still pondering that one). I whole-hardheartedly recommenced this book to all the romantics out there that are just dying for the touch of the single tail and the harsh slap of the spanking added to the mix. Sierra's got it all. Come and get it !!!

    Sierra does it again

    Bind grabbed me from the first page and left me wanting more. I had a hard time putting the book down. Lara is a women on a mission and Connor is a man who knows what he wants. Throw in a marriage proposal of convenience and the heat begins to rise. I really enjoyed the story and the chemistry between the characters was very believable. The scenes were hit and very well written. There was even a surprise visit from another one of Sierra's great characters from a previous series. I highly recommend this new series from Sierra.

    Sensuality at its Best by a Master Storyteller!

    Masterful Sensuality from the Master of Sensuality - Sierra Cartwright ! I bought this book at Books-a-Million and was reading it before I made it home. Ms. Cartwright's books are like a drug to me. I have lost myself in them time and again. In this her first book of her newest series we meet Lara Bertrand the CFO of her families company Bertrand Holdings Inc. Lara is aware the company needs help and has come up with a proposal to save it if only she can convince Connor Donovan of Donovan Worldwide to help her by accepting her proposal of a marriage of convenience. Connor has wanted Bertrand Holdings for some time, he needs some of the patents they own and has made an offer to Lara's Father. But was turned down. Lara knows he wants the company and rather than see it crumble and be picked up piece by piece by the competitors she goes to Connor to make a deal. A wife in name to host his parties and give the illusion of stability and take him out of the lime light from gold digging women after him. Connor wastes no time accepting Lara's offer but has demands of his own. He wants Lara's submission, and a full committed relationship with all that entails. He quickly gets her to agree to an extended time frame of two years over her want of only committing one year. And shows her the chemistry they have will indeed make for an sensual and intense bond between them. He binds her to him heart and soul. Ms Cartwright's books are always a delight to the reader. Her to worlds she creates are rich with detail, full character development and strong story lines. The reader is invested 100% from the very first page. I have read several of Ms. Cartwright's books and have never been disappointed with my investment. They are some of my favorite gifts to friends and family. 5 stars for this Sensual trip through a world full of Masterful storytelling!

    Wrapped up and bound in his love

    Lara Bertrand is the CFO for her family’s company and lest you think it’s a position granted by nepotism perish the thought. Lara has earned her way up in the business world. She’s finance savvy and knows what she’s doing. She also knows exactly what she doesn’t want… CEO is NOT on her to do list. So, when she watches her father repeatedly throwing good sense out the window, she’s left with some drastic measures to reign in his mad dash to financial ruin… Measures that include a marriage of convenience proposal to the only person she figures can help her pull things out of the spiraling decline they are on. Color her shocked, though, when her proposal is met with a counter. Her marriage of convenience isn’t going to be all too convenient because Mr. Connor Donovan wants a submissive, a wife in his bed and fidelity… not for her initial proposal of a year, but for a full three years. To sweeten the pot he’s offered her a taste of what being with him entails. Connor has had his eye on BHI for a while and the lovely Ms. Bertrand most recently. He wants their patents and their communication division but when he goes in above board, Petrell Bertrand turns him down flat without even looking at the offer. Now, he could sit around and pick up the pieces of the company as it crumbles or he could take Lara up on her proposal. He’d much rather have his collar and his ring on this enticing woman than take an unsure bet on what would be left of the company. But appearances are everything in the business world so there is no way he’s going to accept an in name only proposal. She’ll be living with him and gracing his bed. Her on her knees at his beck and call are the icing on the cake. But when he decides to give her a taste of just what a relationship with him would be like, he finds he has found his perfect match. Too bad the two of them can’t see past their proposed end date on something that could be a lifelong journey together. These two are hot together and definitely a winning number. The BDSM scenes Ms. Cartwright has detailed will keep you on edge. It may be a rocky road to HEA but you will get there in the end. Gotta wonder what Connor’s brothers Nathan and Cade have in store for us in the other two books in the series. This one is well worth the read. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****
