I have to start off by saying I am a huge fan of Ms. Anderson and she has yet to write a book that I haven't enjoyed reading.
This book is an odd duck, it starts off as a BDSM romance and then veers off away from the BDSM and takes on some serious drama, which was jarring to say the least. Weirdly I'm not a fan of BDSM but because of the author knew that it would be a sexy read. It is, but the two parts of the story never really came together for me. If you love Ms. Anderson's writing you'll love this anyway.
Emma Krist is a dud—a magicless witch. Not only that but she’s full-figured and plain instead of thin and gorgeous like her talented cousins. So she figures there’s no way she’ll be chosen as the Bloodlust Sacrifice for the new vampire Sovereign.
When Aiden James picks her over every other single female in the supernatural community, Emma doesn’t know what to think. Now she must begin a whole new life of submission, giving herself body and soul without reservation, or suffer the punishment for her disobedience. Kept naked, Emma is teased and tormented nightly. As Aiden pushes her body, she begins to wonder how much more she can take.
But Aiden has reasons for the erotic punishments—buried deep in Emma’s past is the key that could unlock her hidden potential. But finding it could ruin everything and cost Emma the only chance at happiness she has ever known.
