HE WANTS TO SAVE HER, AND IN THE PROCESS SAVE HIMSELF
HE WILL DO EVERYTHING FOR THE PROMISE OF ABSOLUTION

In the sensual world of the elites, Nickolas is a game player. But he has more than the usual secrets up his sleeves—secrets that are starting to unravel as the walls he's erected through the years crumble, shaken by an enemy that has almost destroyed him once.

Everything that Nickolas lives for is for the possibility that Iliana will be able to forgive him for the sins committed in the past, the sins that destroyed her life, and played with his hand. But the danger he is trying to protect them from blindsides him, and he rushes to control the situation before it controls him again.

Iliana, blessed with a fiery spirit that is her power and his curse, starts to make it difficult for him, simply because she owns his heart and soul. What will he do when the dam breaks and she discovers his damning secrets?

He knows. He knows that not even her love for him could save him. And not his riches, not his power, could save him from himself….

EXCERPT:
Nickolas' eyes glowed fierce and his face got a carnal, dark expression. Her last thought before his lips crushed hers was how animal-like he looked, much like the panther she'd imagined him to be without knowing how much that animal figured in his life and hers. His lips possessed hers, cruel and unrelenting in a punishing kiss. He bit her lips to force her to open them, ramming his tongue in her mouth, spearing hers and taking her breath away. She whimpered beneath him, tried to resist but she couldn't move. He grabbed her hands, brought them behind her back and pressed her with his weight to immobilize her further.

His mouth left her lips and moved down to her neck, sucking and biting her sensitive skin brutally while his hands set the lapels of her jacket aside and then ripped her shirt to reveal her breasts, kneading them hard and painfully, his fingers squeezing her nipples forcefully and straining them until she screamed. Iliana felt his steel-hard cock straining through his pants as he rubbed it in the throbbing spot between her thighs which his knees had forced open. She tried to repress the strong craving that rushed through her, but to her utter humiliation, she could not.

Meet the Author

The moment Sandra Ross held her first romance novel when she was ten, she knew she was going to write romance. At thirty now, a prolific reader and a freelance writer, she's since then expanded her preferences from just romance to romance with a dash of now trending sub-genres—paranormal , fantasy, sci-fi even, and erotica. She loves challenging herself and would write on a dare. On a normal day, she would be found in her herb garden collecting spices for her kitchen or ingredients for her potions; in her huge eclectic Provencal kitchen with the big modern oven cooking pots and pans of food for her family of one husband and three kids (an ardent daughter and two boisterous sons) that'll probably last for weeks; in her library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and an e-reader in her hands as she reads the latest short story erotic hit; or scribbling pages upon pages of different erotic lifestyles, searching for the one that feels like it was inspired by just the right mix of passion, storyline, and sex. She loves going crazy on weekend nights with the hubby. Aside from these activities, the rest of the time she'd be found in front of her laptop typing the latest Sandra Ross concoction for her readers.

    I Also Recommend:

    The Taming is the second book in Sandra Ross's Wild Cats Series.

    The Taming is the second book in Sandra Ross's Wild Cats Series. It's sexy and has a lot of sex scenes that blend in well with the rest of the story. Ross has a way of making her characters more believable by showing us their sex lives and dirty little secrets. In this book Nickolas's obsession for Iliana tells the reader more information about the her painful past. He has gathered every piece of information he possibly can about the woman he loves, even if some of the information wasn't legally obtained. If it wasn't clear in the first book, his obsession becomes obvious within the first few pages of The Taming. Iliana knows he loves her and is a bit overbearing, but she is still clueless about the extent of his obsession for her. She is still uncomfortable with his wealth and the way he loves to lavish her with gifts, but that makes her seem more real. Iliana knows that Nickolas has high security on 'the Castle', but it's extent is something else she is clueless about. Ross has set up a lot of mini-plots and I can't wait to see how she they turn out. She is a writer who knows how to keep the reader on the edge of their seat.


    Ross has written another well versed erotica that offers a good variety of scenes. This book has something sexy for everyone. The Taming is a must read for anyone who enjoys erotica and action romance.

    Way too short for the money!!!

    Diappointed. Great potential story line, but leaves you hanging in strange ways. Book 1 and 2 are only 110 pages combined. All sex, but there is an underlying story. Wish there was more.

    This book comes is a second instalment. I read her first book and bought thing one too since I loved the first book. Sandra knows how to write a good love scene. Her books won’t leave you high and dry. Her writing is easy to follow and the whole story is well written. 
    This book is about a couple who have lost some of their initial spark for each other. Nickolas is a strong and dominant male who is in a relationship with a submissive girlfriend named Illiana. Just by reading this first few pages, you can instantly sense Nickolas’ controlling and dominant behavior. This might irritate some readers but not me. I’m a sucker for alpha males. Their sexual chemistry is hot and steamy. You won’t be able to put the book down!
    Strangely, this book is actually a good read for me since I can relate to it. Well, not the strong and aggressive love scenes but rather the whole predicament their relationship is in. After a while, relationships tend to cool down and disagreements tend to leave both parties bitter. This book made me review myself and change certain habits I have that annoyed my partner. Sometimes, when the fires cool down, it needs a good fanning to bring it to scorch level again. This is just the book to awaken your sexy side. Work on yourself and your relationship before deciding if it’s still worth it.

    This is another series from Sandra Ross. If you decide to read the others you will notice that there are a lot of erotic scenes in these books. This one is filled with sex scenes that you may enjoy if you are a fan of Sandra Ross’s books.

    I will have to say that if you are not a fan of the whole erotic sex scene view then I would not read these books, but if you are comfortable and you love them then you should enjoy this part two series. I love that Sandra write erotic stores very well and she engages in a lot when it comes ot emotion and other aspects of her writing.

    I found that this book was really good with the dialogue and with the wording. This was a books that I like since I love all of her books in general. I can say that she did a great job wit this book. If you look at this book and begin to read it; you will notice that it reads easy and that you can understand everything that is going on.

    Her characters are real nad she has a lot going on in this part two section of her series. I like the fact that Sandra can play around with all of the characters in her books and make them more realistic on the page. The stories that she created makes everything come to life and it is like you are there or you have experienced a few things yourself.

    This is a book for anyone that loves to read erotic and that loves change. She has a lot going on, but everything is different. If you love to read different erotic books and you love that fact that the characters are very realistic and the emotion that is put into the reading, then I would recommend this book.

    Even though I hadn't read the first part of this series, it was easy for me to just jump right into this story without feeling lost or like I needed to read the first one first (though I picked it up later)! I've read several of Sandra Ross' books and they do not disappoint! Sandra has a great way of capturing desire that some authors just can't grasp. Her books always leave me hot and bothered and wanting more.

    Her characters are real as well. Opening the story with this unhappy couple opens the doors to explore not only desire but the way it can diminish over time. I love how she's able to play with the characters, making them believable and realistic but oh so sexy at the same time. As an erotic writer myself (under the name Camille Caraway), I try to make my characters believable as well and love how easily Sandra can pull it off. This book is definitely worth a read if you're looking for something to spice up your afternoon.

    My only complaint is that the book was a bit short but other than that, a fast and fantastic erotic read.

    Good!

    This is another of Sandra Ross’ book which is a part of a series. If you read the others you will find that there is a lot of erotic content in the books, and this one, The Taming (Wild Cats Part Two): Erotic Romance Series, is filled with sex scenes.

    As a warning, if you are not comfortable with these type of scenes, then you are in for a lot.

    I find that Ross writes erotica very well. She engages my mind and I can almost see and feel the sensations that the characters are experiencing. There is no doubt that Ross is talented in this regard. It is not common where you actually find writers who can create such an experience within you, by simply using their characters to paint the picture for you.

    I found that the dialogue in the book was very good. It kept me entertained as well as heated. You will be begging to find out what the character will do next as you read through the book.

    Also, I find that the book reads quite easily. There is nothing that hinders the words from flowing freely through your mind as you read. No cumbersome words, no incomplete sentences, nothing that will have you wondering what Ross is referring to.

    The book concentrates mainly on its erotic content. I am fairly happy with it and the way it turned out. The only thing that I wish is that the book was a bit longer, so that I could enjoy it some more!
