Lawyer Allison English never planned to return to The Den—despite her naughty fantasies about being bound by owner Seth Matthews. But when club guest Tyler Wysong is injured in a scene, Seth turns to Allie for help. Aroused by both men, Allie should turn the case down. But she can't…

After his bad experience, Tyler has no interest in being with another Dom. Yet he can't deny his attraction to Master Seth. When Seth offers him a place to stay, Tyler agrees—if Allie will stay too. But what good is a chaperone who adds to his temptation?

Living with two subs brings out Seth's protective instincts, though Allie insists she's not into the lifestyle, and Tyler swears he's done with it. But the chemistry between the trio prompts them to agree to submit to him for one week, and he'll show them both the true pleasure that a Dom can provide.

The intimacy could break them all, or bind them together forever…

Read an Excerpt


"Goddamn it, Deklan. We need to stop it!" Seth Mathews paced away from the screen, raked his fingers through his hair and spun back to glare at his business partner.

The other man held firm, his face a mask of chiseled rock. "Not 'til we hear the word."

"Christ. He could be permanently injured before that happens."

Deklan looked down, his hands balling into hard fists. He shook his head, the distress showing in the rigid line of his jaw. "Not our call. You know the rules."

"Fuck the rules." Seth swung around, barely resisting the need to punch something. Someone. "It's gone too far. Look at him." He pointed to the security screen, the evidence playing out in full color for them to watch.

Put me out of my, put me out my fucking misery. The words screeched through the room, the heavy metal song seeming to say what the man bound to the St. Andrew's cross couldn't. The audio feed provided gruesome detail to the abuse taking place in the private room. That was what Seth called it. Because in his opinion, what they were watching had nothing to do with dominance and submission.

Every hiss and crack of the whip was like a stinging bite to Seth's own skin. The stoic grunts and curses from the submissive a call for help that they were ignoring.

Deklan stared at the screen, cursed again. "How long have they been at it?"

"Forty-five minutes." Rock pointed to the small clock ticking way in the corner of the screen. The video feed kicked on and off every time someone entered and left a private room. A trick of technology the security lead had engineered, along with the auto storage and backup of every recording. The ex-military man was a computer genius behind a battle-hardened front.

"If you don't do something, I will." Screw Winters. Deklan might oversee security, but it was Seth who dealt with the business fallout. And the Scene playing out before them was clearly in the realm of extreme edgeplay. "Consensual or not, this is not what The Den is about."

He pushed around Rock's chair to get to the door but was halted by Deklan's hand on his chest. He glared at Deklan, willing the man to move before he was forced to punch him.

"Christ. It's not like I condone it." Deklan met his glare and raised it with his own snarl. "But we can't stop every Scene we don't agree with."

"And if he's injured? Then what?"

Jake entered the room on a wave of thumping dance music that clashed with the guitar riff screeching from the computer. He pulled up short, gaze darting between the both men. "What's going on?"

"Bad Scene," Rock finally said, his gruff voice filling the tense pause.

"Fuck. Who is it?" Jake slammed the door and strode over to the security screens. He shoved between Seth and Deklan to stand behind Rock's chair and break up their standoff. He swore a blue streak when saw the feed. "What a shithead."

Even with the mask covering the top half of his face and head, they all recognized the Dom on the screen. With over five hundred members, it was hard to know everyone by name. Well, except for Deklan, who had a freak-brain for details. But all three owners could identify the high-profile members on sight.

"What's he thinking?" Jake voiced Seth thoughts. "Does he want to get outed?"

"He'd fuckin' deserve it," Seth mumbled.

    Seth Matthews, Master Seth as he's known at The Den, thinks the day is just like any other. That is until he sees something that disturbs him on the monitors. A man who Seth already views as a poor excuse for a Dom, is with a sub in a private room, but what catches his eye is the treatment of the man chained to the St. Andrew's cross. Master Rex has taken things too far, causing him to intervene. What he comes across is something that he wishes he'd stopped earlier, and will change his life forever.
    Tyler knows the game, he knows the score. Being paid for the use of his body, he often finds himself in situations he doesn't enjoy but bills need paid. Visiting The Den and being employed by the dirty politician leaves him severely injured and under the care of Master Seth, a man that he is instantly attracted to, and a lawyer Allison English, who his body can't help reacting to.
    Allison has been to the club before, swearing she'll never go back regardless of her attraction to owner Master Seth. That is until she gets a call from a friend saying they need her help. She knows Tyler should press charges for what he's been through, but she finds herself dealing with not one but two of the most stubborn yet utterly gorgeous men she's ever met. What happens when the wounds start to heal but the attraction is still there?
    Master Seth has had both of these lovely submissives in his home, and he plans to keep them there. One week. They will give him their submission, but Master Seth plans to take so much more...
    This is my kind of story, absolutely delicious. The chemistry between Seth and Tyler was burning up the pages. Allie was my least favorite in this ménage but she brought her own positives to the story. The emotions are high, the wounds deep, and the sex on fire. Have I mentioned I loved it? This was more about the emotional aspects of a D/s relationship vs. the physical kink. It's a nice reminder that you need both, and too many books get caught up in toys and accessories. Nice emotional read.
    Part of a series but can be read as a stand alone.

    When I picked this book up, I didn’t realize it was the third in a series.  As I read it, I could tell there had been other stories, but I didn’t feel like I’d missed something.  The BDSM theme is almost negligible, though I get the impression that’s specific to this book and not the previous ones.  The club the story centers around is BDSM and it starts off with a scene (a heart breaking one), but the relationship is more tender with maybe some commands or something.  I actually really liked that element.

    The book as a whole felt realistic, took me through a range of emotions, and got me invested in the characters.  The characters felt alive and I loved who they were and how they progressed from acquaintances to lovers.  I especially appreciated the sacrifices made and how it played out to get some kind of justice for the beginning of the book that tugged at the heart strings so much.  I will definitely be seeking other books in this series.

    Bonds of Desire is a compelling read with an authentic feel.  It’s a sexy love story that evolves from darkness and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I received an e-galley of Bonds of Desire from NetGalley for an honest review.

    This is the first Wicked Play book that I've read it. It was a great introduction, and can easily be read without reading the first two. Menage romances can be difficult to pull off, the problem I most often find is that there seems to be a third-wheel. I didn't get that in this book, though. Seth, Tyler, and Allie are all different, but mesh really well. Allie and Seth battle for top-dog, while Tyler is healing. Watching Allie and Seth go back and forth with each other offered a whirlwind of emotion. One that definitely kept me captivated.

    Tyler was harder for me to connect with. He had a hell of an experience at The Den and ends up hurt more than just physically. I kind of felt like his constant "woe is me" attitude could have been drawn out a little less. I'm not saying that he had to flip back from his injury quickly. I just wish we would have seen his growth and healing a little more. It happened at the end, and it was done well--if quick.

    Overall, these three caught my attention and held it. The struggle of submission was intense, but not unbelievable. I would definitely recommend this book for fans of BDSM and menage. I'll be reading future books from Lynda for sure.

    really warmed my heart up...

    I read too many romances, but this one really stole my heart. Three people who were hurting in a romance is not unusual. But three people who are hurting And are willing to work on their own issues is refreshing.
    It is part of a series, but it can be read by itself and be enjoyed for itself.
