Sometimes the perfect man is the one who’s most forbidden.
After her husband’s death, Isabella Santos fled Washington and its bruising memories. But estate matters force her to return and fate gives her a chance to connect with a man she’d always secretly longed to call Master—Mark, the brother of her late husband. Mark, retired from his black ops career, grabs the second chance Isabella’s sudden appearance in D.C. presents. He’s never forgiven his late brother’s neglect of Isabella, a woman he’s loved from afar for ten years. Now reunited, he’s determined to earn her heart and submission. As their forbidden love blooms, they forge a perfect domestic discipline life that provides a feeling of oneness and completion. But her family’s opposition and demons from her late husband’s life intervene. In the end, the only way to have the future they’ve dreamed of is to come to terms with the past.

Review by Lindsey
Hot damn. This was a pretty good little read. I enjoyed the BDSM aspects of the book more so than anything. The characters were amazing together and I loved their chemistry. This is book three in a series although each book can be read as a standalone. Marco and Ella’s story is a bit on the difficult side. But there’s no less heat or passion with those difficulties.
Marco is a bad ass. Former Special Ops man, gun toting, delicious muscles. Just a big manly mass of DAYUMMMN! Haha. Oh, and lets not forget… Hes a Master. Not just a man that takes control… He is the epitome of control. He not only Masters the bedroom but he dominates in all things. He takes charge. If there’s a situation… He fixes it. He strives to make sure everyone around him is happy. Only hes missing one thing…. Ella. Hes been in love with her for YEARS. Only his brother took her before he really had the chance. Now that she’s back in his life, there is no stopping him now. She will be his. Or at least that’s what hes wanting.
Ella has had a difficult time letting go of her past. Shes a runner. Run away from things and hope they disappear. I really wanted to smack her for this sometimes. But when the going got tough and she had to woman up…. Boy did she! Her ex husband was a douche. He didn’t value her. And she definitely realized she chose the wrong brother. But will she get her act together in time? Will she finally let Marco know how shes felt all these years? Or will the past continue to haunt them both?
This book has some good ole angst and sexual tension. It was a good read with lots of ups and downs. I was able to set back and just enjoy the story.

She wrote the Elite Doms of Washington, a contemporary erotic romance series, somewhat inspired by her thirty-year career serving D.C. clients, though her work life didn’t include the graphic smexiness or BDSM she features. However, they provided terrific inspiration and taught her not all power in D.C. is wielded by politicians. When not writing, Elizabeth indulges in dance classes, visits to wineries and hiking with friends. She is owned by a 17-pound Westie dog named Callum, who allows Elizabeth and her husband to share his 28 acre Central Virginia farm that he calls home. (Callum is the real Dom in the family.)
