Book 3 in the Power and Pain series.
Stephen has decided to return to Sanctuary before his libido rages out of control and somebody gets hurt. Then he sees Mary and they share a vision, which means she could be his mate. He’s delighted. She’s not. Mary just wants a ride to Sanctuary, not a ride on Stephen.
Once there, he is determined to find out what she’s hiding. Why insist on visiting the most dominant sex enclave in the world if you’re not ready to submit? Stephen pushes until Mary finally admits why she’s denying her true nature—she is so powerful she burned out her last lover. She’s fearful Stephen isn’t strong enough to control her.
But Stephen was born for this…and for this woman. He’s ready to show her just how far a truly dominant man can take her.
A roaming hero ends his restless journey, tired of seeking something that he will never obtain without the right woman. Stephen’s alpha ways sent him searching for peace. His world is filled with a special species of people that can share telepathic pathways. His mind is cluttered with shared passions and too much knowledge of the people surrounding him.
The heroine is a woman seeking what he has resisted. Mary is searching for the enclave holding Steven’s people. She’s been shunned by her own enclave for having too much power, but she is a true submissive. Only Steven’s dominant nature can tame her fight and force her true tendencies to surface.
This story held my attention from start to finish. The flow and build of passion kept me enthralled even after my husband turned out the lights. The psychic world is one that intrigues even the most jaded skeptic, but this story opens a door to the unknown and pushes you over the threshold.
