Dark Blue is the first book in the Study in Seduction by Natasha Bond. Five years after her husband’s death, Carla Jones is studying at Oxford University. She also wishes to explore domination and submission. She meets a man at a fetish party who she has trouble getting out of her head and months later finds out its her new Professor Alex Lemaitre. The attraction between them sizzles whenever they are in the same room together.
Carla is unique she is older than the other students at Oxford. She leaves a career in journalism to pursue a career in literature. She is a strong woman who has had a rough life. Her husband was cheating on her before his death and she has not told anyone what he did.
Alex Lemaitre is a professor at Oxford who specializes in erotic literature. While he is attracted to Carla, he pushes her harder that most because he thinks she can rise to the challenge.
The chemistry between Carla and Alex is blistering hot. The sex scenes were hot and spicy. I loved that both Carla and Alex tried to fight there attraction even though that Carla wanted to know if Alex was her masked man at the party months earlier.
Overall, I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I really liked this book. While this book was set in England the English slang was easy to understand and not confusing in the least.
The hottest lessons require the strictest discipline…
Study in Seduction, Book 1
Five years after losing her husband, Carla Jonas has finally decided to go for her dreams—all her dreams, from studying literature at Oxford to exploring a secret desire to be dominated and disciplined. A desire she never knew she had until six months ago, when a mysterious masked man pleasured her at a fetish party.
She’s stunned when she meets her new college professor. Not only is the gorgeous French academic, Alex Lemaitre, notoriously strict, this isn’t the first time they’ve met. She’d know that exotic accent anywhere—he’s her masked lover. Except he won’t even admit he was there that night.
There’s no mistaking the sexual attraction smoldering between them, and when he issues her a challenge, she’s more than up for it. Even when his unique tutoring methods drag her far beyond her comfort zone.
But as he leads her on a journey of sensual discovery, she’s not sure if any degree of submission will find its way into his guarded heart, or if she’ll end up with her own heart broken.
Warning: Contains an intense relationship between a hot French professor and a smart woman who knows what she wants from him. Also features desktop discipline, fantasies fulfilled, secrets revealed, and motorbike sex.
