Rated: 3.5 Stars

From the author of Breathe and Blush comes a blisteringly hot new novel about baring it all….

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….

Linger is a hot and sexy twist on BDSM. Scarlett is giving up her life in Vegas to move to rural Montana for a veterinarian internship and before she leaves she wants one last night as Mistress S at the club. Logan is in Vegas for one night to escape his mind. Normally his farm keeps him busy enough, but sometimes he needs more. Logan is an alpha man that wants a dominatrix to take control of his body and his mind. He doesn’t want to think. From the moment Scarlett and Logan see each other the passion ignites. Their time together at the club is blazing hot, and she never wanted to change her plans and stay as much as she did after that night. When Scarlett shows up at the farm in Montana, she is shocked to find Logan to be the owner. Can Logan be the sub she desires? Will Scarlett be a strong enough Mistress for Logan? I prefer male doms, but I think the author did a great job telling this story.

Note: Donna tried this book first and was unable to finish it because of the PTSD issues in it. Here’s her thoughts.
As the wife and mother of PTSD sufferers, I cannot in good conscience finish this story. The author writes very well and I found the surface story intriguing but feel that PTSD needs professional medical help, not broken down and rebuilt by a Dom.

Lauren Jameson Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
