Research comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s deliberate and I seek out information from the experts. Other times the research comes to me when I least expect it. Edge of Need was a mixed bag. Sutton is a dancer dealing with her recovery from a stress fracture in her leg.
Dance injuries aren’t a new thing for me. My daughter has been a dancer for ten years and I’ve watched her deal with many, many injuries including an ankle issue that kept her away from competition for two years. Needless to say, while I was writing Edge of Need, her physical therapist was asked a great deal of odd questions. When I explained I was a writer, she became a valuable fountain of information.
Little did she know… *g*
Sidelined by a devastating injury, Sutton searches for someone who will command her, pleasure her and push her to the limits of her darkest desires. Within seconds of meeting a Dungeon Monitor, she is captivated by the rough edge of dominance he possesses.
Adam lives and breathes the lifestyle, unleashing his wilder side to deliver extreme and uncompromising demonstrations. But when he finds himself without a submissive, Sutton offers herself. One night under Adam’s sensual command and Sutton knows she’s found her perfect Master.
Their scenes are white-hot and they discover a fervent need that is not easily sated. Soon they are fighting a love they never expected, surrendering emotionally to fill the aching void in both their hearts. When Sutton is free to return to the dance stage she calls home, Adam knows he’ll have to convince her to accept life as his cherished submissive, collared and kept forever.
Warning: Sparks fly when two exhibitionists collide on stage. These two showoffs let their imaginations fly when it comes to delayed orgasms, spankings, inflatable toys, straight razors and one unbelievable collaring scene under the spotlight. Break out those opera glasses, you’re gonna want to get up close and personal.

Just as Sutton jumped off the last step, her leg started to loudly protest the odd exercise. The ice bath she’d always hated suddenly sounded heavenly and she followed him back to the clinic. A chill of the air conditioning blasted her in the face, blowing across the sweat soaked clothes.
They wound their way to the back corner of the gym area. He tapped the high lip of the immersion tank and she hopped up, straddling it. As she sank her leg into the ice-cold water, Adam flipped a switch. “Five minutes. Be right back.”
To distract from the shock and pain, she watched Adam maneuver his way around to the other patients. He chatted with each of them, looking over their charts as therapists worked on whatever part of their body they were here to heal.
Her opinion of him and his work ethic hadn’t altered much. In fact, it had only strengthened. He took pride in his work, be it here or at the club. His focus was wholly on whatever he was doing at the time and he genuinely cared for the people he was in charge of.
The clinic and the club weren’t simply jobs for him.
He lived for his work.
A hand brushed against her knee, startling her. “Falling asleep on me?”
“Oh no. Just thoroughly enjoying the fact I can’t feel my leg right now.”
Adam chuckled as he sat. “Go ahead and hop down. We’ll get you dried off.” As he moved the towel over her skin, her thoughts wandered. Her imagination started picking people away until they were the only two souls at the clinic. Everything hazed and she let herself be carried away by the daydream.
Those gorgeous chocolate-brown eyes met hers, a playful, sexy smile teasing the corners of his lips. He dropped the towel at her feet, leaning back in the chair. She let her gaze travel slowly down his body, admiring the bulk of his form. She’d been surrounded by long, lean dancer’s bodies for too damn long.
It was nice to be reminded of the beauty of a well-built man.
Her gaze lingered on his crotch area, wishing his shorts weren’t in the way to block her view. As though he could read her mind, he pushed away from her. The flimsy fabric of his tank shifted as he lifted it over his head, exposing a well-chiseled expanse of chest. He lifted his hips, stripping his shorts so he sat before her blissfully nude.
