He wants her subject to his will. She’s scared she may never want to get away.
The first time Sofia McBride meets the strong and determined Cade Donovan, he warns her to keep her distance. She tells herself to heed his words, but she’s stunned to realize her depth of attraction to this intimidating man.
She knows she should stay away from him, but try as she might, she’s unable to resist him or his sexy, erotic demands. The deeper she becomes ensnared, the more she realizes she may never want to escape.
All his life, enigmatic rancher Cade Donovan has chosen women who don’t expect too much from him. But when a storm strands him with Sofia, his lovely, won’t-take-no-for-an-answer event planner, all his dominant and protective instincts flare.
Cade wants everything she has to offer, but he soon discovers Sofia’s beauty hides a determination he hasn’t counted on. Her untamed responses send him on a journey that will banish his demons and change them both forever.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal play.

I loved Bind. It’s because of that book that I was excited to proceed with the rest of the series. However, I have to say that I had a hard time finishing Brand. I liked this book, it just wasn’t as amazing as I thought it would be. First, it took me long to connect with the main characters. Sofia seemed pretty interesting, but there was something about her that I just couldn’t relate to. However, it was hardest to connect with Cade. I get the guilty, troubled cowboy hero theme that was going on with him. I just couldn’t see him as an amazing dom.

I loved Connor. I could clearly see him as this controlling man who dominated both in and out of bed. Cade, though, well, it’s a lot of work to reconcile his dominance. I like him as a hero, though, so all is not lost. I like that Nathan was the one who let him realize that their father wasn’t a perfect man, and that things were meant to happen the way they did. I can’t wait for the next book. I am hoping to love it more than I did this one.
