Heat Rating: 3
When a sudden snowstorm unexpectedly gives her the afternoon off from school, all Carolyn Brooks intends is a night at home grading papers. But when her car slides off the road, Paul Anderson—the arrogant but gorgeous head of the English department—rescues her. He takes her to his home, and Carolyn finds herself drawn to this modern knight.
But Paul is sure the petite schoolteacher is too delicate for his particular desires. He’s not the White Knight she imagines…his tastes run much darker.
What can I say, Diamond in the Snow is a wonderful read. Diana brought two characters who didn't want to admit their own secret desires of being what people consider as strange, weird or defiant.
Carolyn Brooks is a school teacher whose submissive side hasn't been discovered because frankly she was too scared to share that secret; until she was stuck in a snow storm with a fellow teacher Paul Anderson. Her trust in him was immediate and she wanted him to know that she felt as if she came alive in his home as soon as he issued his first order for her to get undressed.
Paul knew what he wanted and had a closet full of toys to prove it but he kept it under caps because of a failed relationship in his past. Paul knew he had a screw loose when he wanted to tie his women up and spank them into orgasm. When Carolyn offered to be his submissive he thought she didn't know what she was asking, but she knew and wanted him to direct and order her as much as he wanted to. They took their situation in order and decided to try a few of the things he liked doing. When he finally decided that Carolyn was right and that she knew what she wanted there was no holding back.
Discovering a love that had them both wanting more and needed to do more to discover what they desired was going to take longer than being stuck in the storm.
This story is a great short read. I would have loved it to be longer but Diana wet your appetite and left you wanting to taste a little BDSM yourself. I give this book 5 Tea Cups!
