The last place Washington D.C. investigative journalist Stella Martin wanted to cover was the White House. But when a friend's request to watch over her latest submissive plaything when she's out of town turns out to be the White House Communication Director, Stella's sudden unwelcomed and unbearable assignment becomes quite interesting.
Laird Harkness hadn't expected his perfect Domme would show up in his office-the most famous house in the world and a place where his secret desires could end his career. Stella calms his fears, but can she sate his craving to submit, serve and belong to someone?

First of all I have to say that I love this cover. I can't say that the Femme Domme genre would be among my preferred reading lists but Elizabeth SaFleur writes excellent stories and I thought I should give it a chance. All of the characters in the book are given personalities that let you like or hate them accordingly. I liked the tension caused by Stella and Laird working together (sort of) in a stuffy, restrictive work environment. The extra drama added by the incident at David's kept me on edge waiting for the gavel to fall. The book is well paced and wraps up nicely. Overall, it is a great little book with heart and a real plot and not just scenes to titillate. I always love when an author provides an epilogue and I was not disappointed this time. I was given an advanced copy by the author and I voluntarily reviewed this book but also purchased it, as I believe in supporting my favorite authors.
Stella Martin is an investigative journalist and quite proud of that fact. She’s also a Domme. When her boss assigns her the coveted White House beat, she’s livid. She wants to investigate, not sit around and be spoon fed a story. Then she discovers that the submissive of her dreams is the Communications Director, Laird Harkness. For his part, Laird doesn’t want the truth of his desires to be found out – that spells disaster for his career. But, just as he is Stella’s perfect idea of a sub, she is his perfect idea of a Mistress. Can they overcome the stresses that their jobs put between them? I have always been impressed with how Ms. SaFleur presents BDSM in her Elite Doms series and she certainly continues the trend with her new series, The Justice Series. Romances with Femme Dommes are not something of which I see a lot, which is part of the reason I jumped at the chance to read this. The scenes are excellently written, demonstrating once again, the amount of research Ms. SaFleur does for her books. I love how the relationship between Stella and Laird is portrayed. There is no doubt that Laird is a powerful man in his own right – an Alpha if you will – but reading how he submits to Stella is beautiful. My only complaint is that I would have liked to have seen their relationship develop more. Yes, there are some amazing kink scenes, but I felt like the end was rushed. I would have liked to have seen more emotional development between the two, that went beyond Domme and sub. I would have also liked to have seen a bit more of Laird’s desires as a sub. Nonetheless, this is a really enjoyable read, as one would expect from Ms. SaFleur. I look forward to the remaining books in the series. 4 Stars NB: I received a copy of the book from the author and chose to review it.
