You can't buy happiness, but in the future you can buy a perfect lover. Gilya is a sympathetic but strong heroine that I connected with right away. Her dilemma speaks to something universal in humans, how much is love a result of our biological programming and how much truly comes from the heart and soul?
Lieutenant Kevin McQuade is a strong man with a soft heart and a vulnerable side. He has suffered isolation and heartache in his life, he hungers for connection. This immediately engaged my compassion for him. I wanted to see him get a HEA. The sex was plentiful and hot. Gilya is the Domme and Kevin is the sub for the most part. Gilya is a warm and giving Domme, strong and yet able to be tender. Kevin is strong, a little rebellious but also giving and warm. It worked for me. The sex here is definately not for the faint of heart. This is a BDSM erotic romance and the punishments are graphic.
I liked the view into Gilya's inner conflict over doing such intimate work at a pleasure house, the toll it takes on her but how she manages to hold it all together. I thought that added a realistic aspect to the story.
But the road is rocky for the lovers and their time together is marked by conflict both inner and outer. The story definitely kept me on the edge of my seat wondering how their story could ever work out. Kingston did a great job of delivering a believable solution.
