Only one man can help her. Is she willing to pay his price?
Faced with the potentially overwhelming loss of her family’s fortune, Lara Bertrand turns to the one man who can help her, the gorgeous and powerful Connor Donovan.
She knows he’s dangerous to her on every level. Only desperation would drive her to make such a risky proposition. After all, she knows all about his ruthless nature and relentless determination to succeed.
When the classy, elegant Lara walks into his office with an outrageous proposal, Connor is stunned and more than a little intrigued. Ever since he first met her, he’s been attracted to the cool beauty, but she’s more than kept her distance.
Connor is absolutely willing to help her out. For a price. He not only wants her hand in marriage, but also her total submissive surrender…

Safety Level: Safe
I really wanted to read this book because it’s the first book on Sierra Cartwright’s new series called The Donovan Dynasty. I don’t regret reading a single page from this book because it was hot, sexy, and entertaining. As a first book, it had everything necessary to get a reader’s interest in the series and hook them into reading on to the next books that are set to come out in the future.
Bind features a controlling hero who wanted to possess the heroine without giving a part of himself as well. Then we have a heroine who knows what she wants and is confident enough in herself to know when to pull back. I like that both Lara and Connor had great careers. Connor was, of course, successful in the corporate world. Lara, on the other hand, was also amazing, although her father kept on getting on her way. I like that even if Lara had control over most aspects of her life, she was a great sub to Connor. I also liked the secondary characters who were mentioned in the book, particularly the hero’s sister and the heroine’s neighbor.
However, the thing that will capture readers is the chemistry between the main characters. It is as explosive as two people can get. The sex scenes are crazy steamy. The banter and the dialogue are all good. I read this book in one day. That’s how much I enjoyed it. I am sure that the other books will be as enjoyable as this one.
