It’s no secret I love strong heroines. No spineless, cowering in the corner females for me. That doesn’t mean she won’t make stupid mistakes—she will. We all do, that’s just a fact of life But see, I don’t write perfect characters either. They’re fallible. They have flaws. And they make idiotic mistakes. Really big ones. But if the heroine’s—or someone she loves—life is on the line, she would be the first one to draw first blood.
That’s more than the case with Korene Braddock, the heroine of Her Master’s Collar. She gets in Roland’s face. She wants to fly the ship. She wants to punch the bad guy in the face. Hard.
But, don’t worry, for all her toughness, she has a soft spot for Roland.
And he may just be her undoing.
“Probably better to get as much rest as you can now while things are calm.”
Korene glared at Roland. “It’s very annoying that you feel you need to explain the simplest of tasks about traveling in space. I’m not a novice. If I had my way, I’d fly on every single mission we’re hired for. I built this company from nothing. I am more than capable—”
“I’m just trying to—”
“Yes, I know what you’re trying to do, Roland. Finley is more than welcome to take the couch if you feel I need looking after.” She folded her arms and glared at him.
A vein jumped on his forehead. “I just wanted to let you know—”
“Why did you leave?” she blurted. Within seconds, a sinking feeling spread through her stomach. Oh how she wished she could take that question back. The timing was horrible, but her temper had gotten the better of her. Damn him for getting her this worked up.
Roland’s brow furrowed. “Do you really want to do this now?”
They were supposed to be a couple completely in love, but what other choice did she have? “Your crew needs to count on your undivided attention. I don’t feel as if you’re giving it to them because of me. I really don’t want to do this now, but until we do, tensions are going to make all of us uncomfortable.”
She finished off the last of her tea while he tapped his fingers against the arm of the chair. His eyes lost focus for a long moment before he finally spoke. “Maybe for right now, it needs to be.”
The last thing Korene needs in her life is a former Master who abandoned her ten years ago. But when her employees are taken hostage on Mars, she’s forced to work with Roland whether she likes it or not. Sparks fly the moment the perfectly chiseled man saunters into her conference room; a sign their incredible chemistry is still just as potent.
Roland has a job to do, but he struggles with his unrelenting desire for the only woman he ever loved. Seeing the strong-willed Korene on her knees again is enough to shatter Roland’s willpower. And give him a raging hard-on.
Their distracting lust could flame out of control if they aren’t careful.
Warning: Fire up your thrusters to embark on a secret mission with a snarky submissive who knows the meaning of courtesy and her smoking hot former Marine Dom who isn’t afraid to wait one more day. The sexual chemistry between these two is so sinfully hot, it’ll melt the plastishield of your spacesuit helmet. Houston, we have a problem.
