Frankie Stevens has always preferred dirt and trucks to dresses and dolls. Wear a pair of heels? Never. Construction boots are as comfortable as a pair of slippers. Her dream is to make a name for herself in the construction industry, by running the company she inherited after her father's death. When somebody tries to sabotage her business, she hires a security professional to protect her assets. But how can she be expected to get any work done with the dominant and sinfully handsome Gabe McBride hanging around?
Gabe has some old-fashioned beliefs. After his father passed away he became "man of the house" and now he's part-owner of The Vault, an upscale BDSM club. He's always taken his role as protector very seriously.
When he meets Frankie, he expects a hard-edged, been-around-the-block-a-few-times construction worker. Instead, he finds himself toe-to-toe with a feisty sprite, who swears like a champ but smells like lilacs and sawdust. She may not fit any of the boxes on his perfect woman checklist, but his head is jammed full of erotic images of her. She's clearly a woman used to being in charge, but he's determined to protect her while he uncovers who's out to ruin her. Now he just needs to get this beautiful, fiery woman to submit to him for both her safety and her pleasure...
