Submission

This is a short and rather interesting read. I feel that the story could have been much better if it had been longer and the author had worked things out a bit more. It felt like an interesting idea, so I'm not writing her off just yet. Besides, this could be one of those fluffy things to read right before bed. 
 
There were some rather glaring inconsistencies that really just jumped out at me.
First of all, I found it somewhat implausible that Juliet would be a member of a sex club. That aside, I thought that it was slightly more improbable that she would have been so footloose with no one to interfere with her life and without any fear of pregnancy. 

That could possibly have been overlooked if the plot and sex could have been more distracting -- but those fell a bit short as well. It seemed like the plot would be picking up when Juliet thought of kidnapping Wakefield, improbably as that was.


Book Blurb for Submission

Lady Juliet De Mar is a confirmed bachelorette and a member of the exclusive London Literary Club, a secret sex club for the more libidinous of the London ton. After taunting her childhood friend and wealthy sea captain, James Wakefield, with the club's bondage games, she finds herself once again longing for him to be something other than he is—a prude with no interest in sex. At least not with her. Tired of his annual visits that always end in rejection, Juliet decides to kidnap him and bring him to his knees—and to the altar—or end their acquaintance forever.

But her plan backfires when she’s kidnapped herself and taken to the docks. Blindfolded and shackled, she becomes the property of a notorious pirate, the murderous Captain Black, purchased for his pleasure. When her deepest, erotic fantasies become a dangerous reality, will Juliet be forced into submission? Or will she learn what she needs to know to master James?
