The Virginia Bluebloods series is quickly ranking right up there with my favorites, that being said, book three deals with my favorite of the bluebloods, Finley O'Dell. The hot Irish Dom who owns the airstrip and O'Dells restaurant. He's also participated in a couple of hot menagès in book one and two.
Enter Shea Murphy. A sub who lost her Master and husband 18 months prior. She's been moving around and has finally settled down for a bit in Fin's neck of the woods. She decides to go to a BDSM club for the first time and the Warehouse is her choice. Fin is the Dom taking care of the newbies for the night, and the tour with her certainly doesn't go as planned as she runs off. Shea is suffering from severe OCD and usually had her Master to help deal with it, usually by punishment.
When Fin returns from a trip a week later, he finds her in his kitchen suffering from a severe OCD attack, knowing what will help, he spanks her. They fall into a routine, but Shea's trust is hard-earned, and she doesn't realize that her old Master/husband was abusive. Will Fin get through to her? Or will she run once again? And who's the lucky menagè partner? Buy Surrender to Me and find out.
For six months, Shea Murphy has been moving from city to city, attempting to distance herself from her failure as both a sub and wife following her husband’s suicide. With the loss of her Master’s strict discipline to keep her obsessive compulsive disorder under control, she’s finally driven to seek relief with another Dom. Entering The Warehouse, she has but one purpose, and that is to leave with a sore bottom which would relieve the unbearable stress—at least long enough to get her to her next destination, wherever that may be. She has absolutely no desire for anything from this incredible Dominant other than punishment, and fights with everything she has against revealing the true demons tormenting her so. However, after two sessions with Master Fin, her urge to flee Richmond subsides and she takes a temporary job at a restaurant.
Fin O’Dell returns after a week out of town to find the sub he couldn’t forget is now his newest employee. Catching her stressing in his kitchen after closing, his quick response of another blistering spanking gives her the relief she needs. Loving all women, Fin has happily played the field for years. He's never found it difficult to send a submissive on her way after he's helped her discover what she desires. But now the feisty lady sharing his home has him wondering if he, like his friends, has finally found the one woman who would capture his heart forever. As much as he is falling for Shea, he can not go further until she has learned to trust him in all ways. If that takes several trips over his lap or bound to apparatus at The Warehouse, so be it.
As Shea succumbs to Fin as a Master a little more each day, she struggles with her perceived guilt over her husband’s suicide, refusing to believe Fin’s insistence Gerard was not the man – or the Dom – she thought he was. When the truth comes out, she's forced to ask herself: has she waited too long to trust Fin? Or will just one simple word be enough to put the past behind her and give herself without reservation to her new Master?
